Fortnite 2 Hidden Shortcut locations explained

Where to find the many hidden shortcuts in the Downtown Drop mode.

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.

If you're looking for more to do in Fortnite, there are plenty of Fortbyte locations to discover.

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.
