Epic Games have already added a number of Fortbyte challenges in Fortnite during Season 9, but if you’re looking to get ahead of the game and find out some leaked challenges, you have came to the right place. 

Fortbytes can be found dotted around the map and are accessible by completing daily challenges, which are made available for players to complete on a regular basis. 

The endgame for the Fortbytes is to uncover a possibly revealing image for what’s to come later in Season 9, or potentially even Season 10, and data miners have revealed what appears to be new challenge details added to the battle royale game with the v9.20 patch

Screengrab: Xbox OneFortbytes can be found high or low in Fortnite Season 9.

According to a report from Fortnite Intel, there have been 15 new challenges uncovered by leakers since the update went live on June 6, all of which will require gamers to drop at different points of interest in order to obtain them – as normal. 

With a number of Fortbyte locations already discovered on the Season 9 map, fans are aware that there is still a lot of work to do in order to fully reveal the teaser image and these new leaked challenges could allow players to get ahead of the game. 

So, let’s take a look at the full list:

Fortbytes have already been found at every corner of the Fortnite Season 9 map, but where will these challenges take you next?

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
