Where to find Jetpacks in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2

The main way to find a Jetpack in Fortnite is to head inside an IO Blimp and search along the walls, as there will be Jetpacks hanging on them – they’re usually right next to the doors when you enter.

You can find IO Blimps with Jetpacks inside them at the following locations:

  • Command Cavern
  • Tilted Towers
  • Coney Crossroads
  • Rocky Reels
  • Condo Canyon

It’s also possible to purchase a Jetpack from The Scientist at Synapse Station. He has five in his possession and will sell you one for 580 Gold Bars. It’s not cheap, but it is a guaranteed way to get one.

How to fly with a Jetpack in Fortnite

Once you’ve picked up a Jetpack and added it to your loadout, you can fly by jumping into the air and then pressing the jump button again. Simply hold the button for as long as you want to float.

The best thing about the Jetpack is that it doesn’t need to be currently equipped to use it, which means you can switch between your weapons and continue battling opponents even while hovering through the air.

Epic Games have also made some adjustments to the Jetpack this season: It will now hover and strafe when you’re aiming your weapon, which allows you to keep your eyes in the sky while lining up a shot.
