A new collectible item has been introduced for Fortnite’s season nine: Fortbytes. They are items that players can unlock, and once they collect them all, an image that’s hidden in the game’s Challenges tab will be revealed and unlock an item.
Only players who own the season nine premium Battle Pass can see and collect Fortbytes. There are 100 of them to collect in total, and players who collect 90 of them will unlock the Utopia skin, which is exclusive to season nine like the Ruin skin was in season eight.
Fortbytes aren’t available all at once, though. Only 18 were available on the first day of season nine, and Epic Games will release more of them every day—at least one a day.
Each Fortbyte requires players to do something different to be unlocked. Check out all the requirements to unlock each of them.
These Fortbytes appear in specific areas of the Fortnite island, as if they were challenges. Players have to navigate the map looking for them and interact with each to unlock them.
Our guides on how to find each of them are linked in the table below.
These Fortbytes are automatically added to a player’s collection once they reach a certain amount of XP gained in the season.
