Guarded by Shadow henchmen, these locations contain ID scanner chests, which require you wear a disguise to open. It's worth the hassle, however, as these chests contain some great loot that could just win you the match.

Just make sure you have enough gear before you infiltrate a Shadow Safe House though, as the henchmen can and will attack you on sight!

Fortnite Misty Meadows Shadow Safe House location

This Shadow Safe House is a little bit different to the ones that came before it; instead of being a hidden location, it's simply just another building on the map.

Landing on the roof counts as finding the safe house.

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. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist.

Fortnite Sweaty Sands Shadow Safe House location

Like the Shadow Safe House near Misty Meadows, this hideout does not involve finding a secret passage. Instead, the Shadow Safe House is a building in plain sight on the Fortnite map.

The safe house is the building half hidden by the tree on the left.

To find it you need to head to the building south of Sweaty Sands.

The easiest way to reach this building is to land near to the pond just south of Sweaty Sands and then head south, you should see a small dirt trail.

Follow this path to reach the safe house.

All you need to do now is get into the building to have it count as infiltrating a Shadow Safe House.
