Finding hidden shortcuts is one of many Fortnite Challenges to complete.
It tasks you with finding 2 hidden shortcuts as part of the Downtown Drop mode. Thankfully, there are many more, so you have your pick of locations to find.
Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. That said, there are still plenty of other things to do in Fortnite Chapter 2 Chapter 1. For Week 3 we have Forged in Slurp Challenges, which include finding Compact Cars, Lighthouse and Weather Station locations. Finally, there is a set of hidden letters in loading screens locations to find each week.
Fortnite hidden shortcut locations explained
The Downtown Drop mode has a variety of hidden shortcut locations found dotted around the outskirts and underneath its winding road course.
You have to find 2 hidden shortcuts as part of the challenge, but since there are many more, you have a good selection to choose from.
Here are five hidden shortcut locations we've found:
First hidden shortcut location - On the way to the first corner (where the Two Food Trucks are) on the left side of the road is a ditch with a white van hanging over it. In there is a hole in the ground. Drop down to find the shortcut location.
Second hidden shortcut location - Between the first and second corners, hug the right wall, where there are coins going underground. Drop down here to enter an underground room with one of the On Fire letter locations, as well as a hidden shortcut location as you leave.
Third hidden shortcut location - On the second corner with the Basketball Court location, you'll find a ramp with a hole in the wall. This takes you through several speed pads, which act as a hidden shortcut.
Fourth hidden shortcut location: In the middle of the road between the second corner (with the Basketball Court) and the third corner (with the lorry) is an open manhole. Drop down to enter the sewer and arrive at the end of the course, which is also where you'll also find a Jonesy location.
Fifth hidden shortcut location: On the third corner, where you find the parked lorry and a letter locations, is a ramp leading down on the outer wall. Drop down to enter the sewer and arrive at the end of the course, which is also where you'll also find a Jonesy location.
