What is a Chrome Vortex in Fortnite?

A Chrome Vortex is basically a tornado that’s made out of Chrome. If you enter one, you’ll fly up into the air and become Chrome-ified. You can then deploy your glider and float back down to the ground.

You can walk into a Chrome Vortex from the ground or glide directly into it after jumping out of the Battle Bus if you want to quickly complete a challenge.

Where to find a Chrome Vortex in Fortnite

The easiest way to find a Chrome Vortex is to look at the map as soon as a match begins. There will usually be two Chrome Vortexes on the Island and you’ll see them marked as white tornado symbols.

There will usually always be a Chrome Vortex at Herald’s Sanctum, with another appearing at a random location on the map. This means you shouldn’t have too much difficulty finding one wherever you are.

Chrome Vortexes should stick around for the whole match, although it’s a good idea to visit one as soon as you leave the Battle Bus in case the Storm cuts off your access to them as the match progresses.
