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.

Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. Star Wars have returned to Fortnite! There are Star Wars skins and challenges to enjoy, along with lightsabers appearing across the island. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.

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.
