Forbidden locations in Fortnite
Though you need to find five locations, thankfully there are many more across the map. Here are eight we've found so far:
Specifically, they can be found at the following locations:
South of Paradise Palms, on the mountain with the cacti:
Desert race track, at the taco shop on the south-west side:
South east of Frosty Flights, next to a campsite on a hill:
At the very south-west of the map, on a cliff overlooking the sea:
South of Pleasant Park, on top of the mountain topped by a ring of white trees:
Loot Lake, on the large island on the east of the lake:
Dusty Divot, on the north side overlooking the crater:
North of Salty Springs, on the second to top-most cliff on the north side:
Lazy Links has a sign in the gazebo on the east side of the complex:
North west of Wailing Woods is a sign perched on a cliff:
North of Wailing Woods is an ice cream truck on a cliff, with a sign next to it:
Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, using the Sideways weapons, partaking in Sideways encounters, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella! Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.
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.
