Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived! New additions include Reality Seeds and Saplings and riding animals, along with the new Battle Pass, characters collection and map changes. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Dead drop locations in Fortnite explained

Before you can secure insider intel from a dead drop in Fortnite, you need to establish a device uplink near Chonker’s Speedway, Logjam Lumberyard or Seven Outpost III.

Where you can establish a device uplink for this Fortnite challenge.

After doing so, you’ll be tasked with finding the dead drop - thankfully all of the dead drops are quite close to where you started this Fortnite challenge. This means, unless you sadly get eliminated before reaching the dead drop, you can complete this very quickly.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Chapter 1 is here, complete with a new augments system, the coming arrival of Geralt and the Ageless Champion to beat! We've also got a present list for Winterfest and Cozy Lodge and pizza slice locations. Meanwhile, learn how to get XP fast, earn the Victory Umbrella, find character locations and earn a Victory Crown.

The dead drop at Chonker’s Speedway can be found near the shipping containers on the hill south-west of the southern building in this location.

If you establish the device uplink near Logjam Lumberyard, travel south-west, past the nearby petrol station, to where the dead drop is located at a small rest spot along the road.

Finally, if you choose Seven Outpost II as your starting point, the dead drop near the coastline directly south-east of the outpost.
