Where to find Sideways Rocks in Fortnite

The easiest way to find and destroy Sideways Rocks in Fortnite Season 8 is to visit the Sideways Zone. These are the giant orange domes that appear over a different POI in every battle royale match.

You can track the Sideways Zone on the map so you know where to go. It’s a good idea to land there ASAP, as you’ll get the best pick of the Sideways Chest loot and avoid the Storm blocking the location off.
