Where to find Fortbyte 48: Accessible by using the Vox Pickaxe to smash the gnome beside a mountain top throne in Fortnite

Where to find the mountain top throne for the latest Fortbyte.

Finding Fortbyte 48 is one of many Fortbyte locations to complete.

It is accessible by using the Vox Pickaxe to smash the gnome beside a mountain top throne, a cryptic clue that helps to narrow down where to find it.


Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Fortbyte 48, introduced on June 19th, is found on a mountain next to Happy Hamlet, in the frozen south-western corner of the map.

On this mountain, you'll find three trees, and in the middle a series of toilets - which are the thrones the game is referring to.

Next to these mountain top thrones is a gnome. Smash it with the Vox Pickaxe, found by reaching tier 55 in this season's Battle Pass - remember to have it equipped from your locker before entering the match - and the Fortbyte will then appear for you to collect.

What else do you need to know about the mountain top throne Fortbyte?

If you're struggling to get it - especially when the Fortbyte first goes live, since everyone else is doing the same - we recommend either coming back either on a later date, a later time in the match (you can hover over the location until the initial rush as gone) or by playing a less competitive mode, such as Team Rumble, where there are less enemies to kill you.

All done? There are more Fortnite Challenges and Fortbyte locations to complete.


Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella.
