Fortnite Firefly Jar: How to use and where to find it

The Firefly Jar was one of the most interesting additions to Fortnite in Season 3. The molotov-like item allows players to flush enemies out from specific areas, and gain control of certain areas of the map.

You can’t find a Firefly Jar on the ground ordinarily though. While it’ll drop from your enemies’ bodies if you kill them, and you can toss them from player to player, initially getting them isn’t that simple.

Instead, you’ll need to hunt down Fireflies dotted across the map, capture them in a jar, and then use them. If you are a bit unsure on where to find them though, here’s a quick guide.

How to find the Firefly Jar in Fortnite

The Fireflies don’t spawn in any specific area of the map, per say. However, they do spawn in areas that aren’t as built up ⁠— so look towards the trees and the shores of the Fortnite island to find them.

From there, all you’ll need to do is ensure that you have some inventory space, and then interact with the fireflies to collect them. They’ll be caught into a jar, which you can then throw.

Firefly Jars stack in lots of three, so be wary of this when you are going around collecting them. You don’t want to end up with too many and then having to drop them to make space.

The Firefly Jar acts like every other grenade-style item in Fortnite. All you have to do is equip it, and throw at opponents. It’ll then spread on an area on the ground, or scale up trees.

However, there’s definitely effective ways of doing it. It’s a brilliant tool for area denial, keeping enemies locked in place while you surround them, or forcing them to take cover in a disadvantageous position.

You do have to be mindful that the damage dealt from the Firefly Jar doesn’t discriminate. If you throw one, you won’t be immune to its damage when it spreads on the ground.

The Firefly Jar is one of many new features added into Fortnite in Season 3. A whole new map, new cosmetics, and even new vehicles were introduced in the major update, which dropped on June 17.

The molotov isn’t the only item Epic added to Fortnite for players to use. The Charge Shotgun, a new Burst Assault Rifle, and a Shockwave Launcher was also added. The Chug Splash was also unvaulted.


When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
