Fortnite Witch broom location: Where to find the Witch's broom and how to fly explained

It's the season of the witch.

The witch broom is a new travel item exclusive to this year's Fortnitemares event in Fortnite.

It will allow you to quickly traverse portions of the Fortnite map in Halloween style and even has a special challenge associated with it, but you need to find the witch broom location first.

Both the witch broom and its challenge are only available during Fortnitemare, which ends on Tuesday, 2nd November. You can also turn into a Shadow and eat candy throughout this event.

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.

Witch broom location in Fortnite explained

To find a witch broom in Fortnite you need to visit Hag's Hollow that is located on the hill south of the gas station in F5 on the Fortnite map.

The location of the witch broom.

It's a good idea to head to this location at the very beginning of a match or else you risk other players taking all the witch brooms.

Once you land, you'll find two barrels containing witch brooms outside the house.

You can choose to either search the barrels to make at least one broom appear or smash the barrels with your harvest tool to make three brooms appear.

After this, a witch broom can be picked up like any other item and added to your inventory.

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. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.

How to use the witch broom in Fortnite

To use a witch broom you need to select it from your inventory like you would any other item in Fortnite.

After that simply use the broom and fly about the map going whether you please until you lose altitude.

As part of the Fortnitemares celebrations there is a 'Travel 100 meters on a witch broom,' which can be quickly completed.

Doing so will reward you with 40,000 XP and the Midas' Revenge loading screen.

Have a good flight!
