Finding forbidden locations is one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.

Completing it will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Fortnite Season 7 rewards.

If you're just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can provide some helpful hints.

Though you need to find five locations, thankfully there are many more across the map. Here are eight we've found so far:

You can unlock Fortnite Season 7 skins and emotes with each week's set of Fortnite Challenges - the latest including the Fortnite abandoned mansion Dance Off location and Fortnite piano and sheet music locations. Other recent additions include Fortnite Wraps, Fortnite plane locations and Snowfall secret Battle Star locations.


How dancing in forbidden locations works

For the Week 1 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Dance in different forbidden locations (5 total, 10 Battle Stars)

Across the map are signs with a dancer with a line crossed through it.

If you stand in front of one of these and use an emote (defaults to the B key on PC or Down on the console's D-Pad) you'll add one to your challenge total. A prompt will appear on screen if you are successful.

As with other challenges, you must do these as you play matches (you cannot enter the map without other players), so you'll have to avoid combat encounters as you attempt to find each location.

Note you need to complete the match in order for the challenge to be finished - quitting the match as soon as you collect it won't work.

If you're struggling, then we recommend playing Limited Time Modes, ideally those where you're part of only one of two teams - making it easier to explore the map without running into adversaries.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
