GUIDE: Where to locate Fortbyte 05 ‘located inside a dance club’



The last round of Fortbytes for Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 will start becoming available as the tenth season of Epic’s BR quickly approaches. July 10’s Fortbyte, 05, can be located inside a dance club.

There will be 100 total Fortbytes that will be available for players to collect all around the Fortnite map. Some challenges require players to complete a specific task like earning 75,000 in-game experience, for example.

Fortbyte challenges are the Battle Pass exclusive challenges that are only available to players who paid the 950 V-Bucks for the pass.

Every Fortbyte comes with a small hint to guide fans to its location along with any requirements. Specific bytes ask players to use a specific skin, emote, or other items from the Season 9 Battle Pass.

Fortbyte 05, which unlocked on July 10, can be located within the snow biome at the warehouse dance club.

Before players hop in a match to collect byte 05, they must have reached tier 95 of Season 9’s Battle Pass in order to access the “Laid Back Shuffle” emote. They will not be able to collect the byte without the emote.

As always, we recommend picking up Fortbytes in the Team Rumble LTM in order to avoid early deaths.

Fortbyte 05 has to be accessed with the “Laid Back Shuffle” emote.

Here’s how to collect Fortbyte 05:

  1. Join a Battle Royale match.
  2. Land at the snowy warehouse to the northeast of Happy Hamlet.
  3. Walk into the building.
  4. Locate the Fortbyte in the middle of the dance floor.
  5. Use the “Laid Back Shuffle” emote.
  6. Collect the Fortbyte.
  7. Success!
Fortbyte 05 is in the middle of the dance floor.

As we stated earlier, there will be 100 Fortbytes available to collect by the time Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 ends. Each Fortbyte is used to decrypt the Fortbyte puzzle image which might hint at what we could expect for Fortnite’s tenth season.

Do you have any theories on what Fortnite Battle Royale Season 10 will include?


Stats reveal the deadliest locations in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite data miner, Lucas7Yoshi, has created a map of the most deadly locations in Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to land or avoid.



Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass

The Fortnite world is a deadly one. Take a look at some of the most dangerous locations on the entire map.

It’s no secret that Fortnite – and all battle royales, for that matter – have hot-spots for players to drop. If you want a fight, you’ll find one at Salty Towers in every game. If you want a more relaxed experience, Craggy Cliffs might be your speed.

Which are the deadliest places on the Fortnite map? Regular players know about some of them. It should be no secret that Salty Towers and Pleasant Park see a lot of action.

Data miner Lucas7Yoshi has been gathering all kinds of Fortnite data, lately. Most recently, he compiled a map of the most active locations in Season 5. As you can see, Salty Towers and Lazy Lake top the list.

The areas shrouded in blue aren’t completely inactive, but they show how much activity happens at the center of the map. If you want a safe drop, the northeast corner is probably your best bet.

From the map, you can see that the action isn’t isolated to the center. Sure, it’s the most active, but Holly Hedges, Sweaty Sands, Retail Row, and Slurpy Swamp almost always have a few deaths per match.

These locations are probably more bus path-dependent than Pleasant, Salty, and Lazy, but they still get a ton of attention. Stealthy Stronghold – likely bolstered by the addition of Predator – can also be seen on the map.

This map doesn’t give us too much new information, but it’s interesting to see how much activity takes place in different areas of the map. Even the no man’s land of the Zero Point has more deaths than places like Steamy Stacks – the safest named POI in Season 5.

We’re interested in learning more about Fortnite trends as Lucas7Yoshi continues his research. So far, he’s compiled data for the most popular cosmetics to go along with his new death map.

Fortnite Winter Trials event & rewards leaked

Epic Games quickly added and removed a webpage that revealed a new Fortnite event: Winter Trials. Here’s everything we know so far.



Epic Games released a new website, announcing the Fortnite Winter Trials. They have since removed the site, leading fans to believe it was leaked early.

Most of the time, when we’re discussing Fortnite leaks, we’re talking about data miners finding files in the game that relate to certain events, skins, etc. In rare cases, Epic let something slip a bit early. That’s what we have here.

On January 25, Epic released the Fortnite Winter Trials webpage, showcasing free rewards, an influencer tournament, community voting on events, and more.

The website was quickly removed after it was added, but data miner Hypex was able to record some of the contents before it went down.

The details of the event are still limited, but it appears as though players will be earning badges for logging in, voting for challenges, and playing Fortnite.

Over the course of the rest of the season, your playtime and badges will reward you with free cosmetics. Most of them are hidden, but we know about a spray, emoticon, and weapon wrap from the images on the website.

Fortnite Winter Trials rewards

We should see an official announcement of the event soon. Since Epic were the ones who jumped the gun, we expect to see them announce the event as soon as tomorrow – if not later tonight.

We’ll update this post when we learn more about the event, along with additional details on how to earn free cosmetics. Stay tuned.

Fortnite tease new Drift Crew skins



Epic Games are dropping some cryptic hints relating to the iconic Drift character in Fortnite, and speculation suggests it’s all leading to a new Drift Crew skin.

On January 24, Epic Games posted a series of mysterious tweets, to get the community guessing.

Their first post referenced Drift directly, saying: “Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” A series of messages followed, asking for help – presumably Drift’s help.

The Fortnite account has since deleted the tweets, but here’s a screenshot of all of them from iFireMonkey.

Data miner HYPEX was quick to highlight that these teasers are almost certainly connected to the upcoming new Drift Skin, which appears to be a female version of the fan-favorite skin.

Fortnite Crew is the monthly subscription service, and it’s expected that this new Drift skin will be included in the February edition of the subscription rewards.

Fortnite Monthly Crew Pack
The Fortnite Crew subscription includes V-Bucks plus cosmetic rewards.

The subscription grants players each new Battle Pass, plus 1,000 V-Bucks, in addition to the cosmetic rewards.

We’ll have to wait and see confirmation about the new Drift skin as we put January in the rearview mirror and move into February.
