How to unlock Fortbyte #48: Accessible by using the Vox Pickaxe to smash the gnome beside a mountain top throne



Fortbyte 48 hit the Fortnite map on June 19th and you’ll be wanting to find it for your collection. We’ve got a detailed guide on how to reach this ‘out of the way’ Fortbyte.

Epic’s latest Fortbyte releases have been getting increasingly more difficult. The reason isn’t that the locations are any harder to find, but rather because of the higher Battle Pass tier requirements.

Today’s Fortbyte, number 48, is no different. For a chance at the exclusive Fortbyte rewards, you’ll need yet another item from the Season 9 Battle Pass.

Fortbyte #48 Location & Information

Vox Pickaxe – Tier 55 – Season 9 Battle Pass.

First off, you’ll need to reach Battle Pass tier 55 in order to unlock this collectible. This will unlock the Vox Pickaxe cosmetic. Equip the pickaxe before hopping into a regular Fortnite game (or Team Rumble).

The ‘mountain’ mentioned in the clue is located in the snowy regions of Fortnite. It’s quite the large land feature and is located northeast of Happy Hamlet. Any long term player will recognize the location immediately.

Fortbyte #48 location.

The ‘throne’ is situated in the middle of three large trees. In reality, the throne is actually a toilet. The gnome statue is standing proudly next to the porcelain masterpiece on its right side.

All you have to do is swing your Vox Pickaxe at the gnome to destroy it. After doing so, the Fortbyte will pop up in its place, ready for pickup. This’ll put you one step closer to unlocking the secret skin at 90/100 Fortbytes.

You can see a great presentation of the location, the gliding path to the correct spot, and the smashing of the gnome in this video by Victrail.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far




The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25




In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
