Fortnite Battle Royale players have been given the opportunity to collect Fortbytes throughout the course of Season 9 and if you collect enough of them you can grab a brand new skin! So, let’s take a look at where you can find them.
A series of Fortbyte challenges were added to the popular battle royale game with the v9.00 update to kick off the new season on May 9, and the more tasks players complete from that list, the more Fortbytes they can collect.
There’s a total of 100 of these files to find during Season 9, but cannot all be found at once as Epic Games has not yet set all of the challenges live.
The challenges will take a lot more grinding than the general weekly challenges that seasoned Fortnite Battle Royale gamers will have come accustomed to, and they’re only available to Season 9 Battle Pass owners.
Finding the small rectangular items can be a tough task, though, even after completing the challenge to unlock them, as they’re hidden in some places you might not think to look. So, let’s make things a little bit easier for you and take a look at all of the locations where you can currently find them across the map.
Fortbyte locations map for Season 9 (Updated on July 19)
The majority of Fortbytes have been made available for players to unlock so far in Fortnite Season 9 and their locations span all across the map, as seen in the graphic above.
One of the main advantage of collecting these files is that they all count towards decrypting a mystery image, which can be found in the challenges tab in the game’s menus. The more files you collect, the more the puzzle will slowly reveal itself to be an image – which could lead to a clue about something later in Season 9.
Unlock the new Singularity skin with Fortbytes!
Epic Games have revealed that players who collect 90 or more of these Fortbytes across the map will be rewarded with a brand new skin.
The elusive cosmetic, which can be seen below, is waiting for players to collect. All they have to do is commit to a treasure hunt for these little pieces of the puzzle and soon they could be running around in the new Singularity skin! Full guide here.
The full list of available Fortbyte challenges can be found below, but not all have been revealed so far…

Fortbyte complete image sneak peek
The full image that comes together after finding all of the available Fortbytes has been revealed by dataminer FortTory and can be found below.
If you want to find all of them first to reveal the image, enjoy the grind and turn away now.
The image appears to show two huge behemoths coming together to do battle, which won’t be a surprise to many Fortnite players after seeing a monster destroy parts of the map and a huge robot being built at Pressure Plant.
While their clash might be all but confirmed at the time of writing, it remains to be seen just how much it will change the appearance of the map ahead of Season 10.
