Where to find Foraged Items for Fortnite’s Hide and Seek Mission

The Fortnite Hide and Seek challenges are now live, and one of them is asking players to consume 10 Foraged Items, which will be pretty difficult if they don’t know where to look.

Foraged Items like mushrooms and apples were a very welcome addition to Fortnite, as they provided players with a boost in health and shield, but those items are once again scattered in places players don’t know about.

Since Chapter 2 introduced a whole new map into the equation, we have to locate all of the Foraged Items once again, which can be quite time-consuming, especially if you’re doing it for a challenge.

The locations may have changed, but if you remember the types of locations the apples and mushrooms appeared in before, then you won’t be spending too much time trying to find them.

You need to eat 10 apples or mushrooms for this challenge.

As is the case with every week, Fortnite player and guide extraordinaire, TheSquatingDog, released a cheat sheet that showed how to complete all of the Week 6 challenges.

In this guide, he shows where to find Foraged Items on the map, revealing that players will easily be able to find mushrooms in the Slurpy Swamp and apples north of Frenzy Farm.

Other spots players will be able to look in include Weeping Woods, Sweaty Sands, and west of Frenzy Farm.

Keep in mind that you’ll have to consume 10 of these, but you don’t have to do it all in one match so take your time if you need to.

As with most challenges, they are heavily contested at the start by players looking to knock them out of the way, so if you’re doing the same, you’ll likely run into a bunch of players at these spots.

Perhaps the easiest way to complete this challenge will be to just not focus on it. The storm forces players to move all over the map during the game so chances are you’ll be pushed to an area with mushrooms or apples naturally.


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
