Fortnite Fortbyte #11 Location: Found Beneath A Circling Jungle Parrot

Where you can find the "cracker".

Another day of Fortnite Season 9, another Fortbyte. Today’s Fortbyte (Tuesday of Week 7) presents us with Fortbyte #11: Found Beneath A Circling Jungle Parrot.

For those unfamiliar with the Fortbyte system here is a primer. Everyday a challenge is released at 2pm BST that usually takes the form of a traditional treasure hunt challenge. There are 100 challenges in total (and one each day) and you’re rewarded with cosmetic rewards as you collect them. For each Fortbyte you collect, you also reveal a tile on a large mosaic image. Currently, the image features Bunker Jonesy frantically scrawling on a wall in pink and black ‘paint’.

This article focuses on Fortbyte #11: Found Beneath A Circling Jungle Parrot, which is rather unique as far as treasure hunt Fortbytes go.

 

Fortnite Season 9 Fortbyte #11 Map

This challenge is a little different as far as the typical clue based treasure hunts go. Instead of the Fortbyte being located in a specific location, it is capable of randomly appearing anywhere within a designated zone. The designated zone in this case, is the jungle biome (circled in red), which occupies the northeastern area of the map and was introduced in Season 8. Lazy Lagoon, Pressure Plant and Sunny Steps are the main landmarks in this area for those unfamiliar.

The parrot in question circles a fair bit up in the sky, making it visible from the air as long as there aren’t any trees blocking line of sight. There are other birds that fly around the biome, especially above Sunny Steps, so try not to get bamboozled by those. The parrot is very vibrant red with yellow and blue highlights, the other birds tend to be a white/gray/black and are smaller than the parrot.

With all that being said, the best that can be done is some general advice on helping you track down the parrot. The jungle biome has a large number of mobility options that can help you cover ground quicker than usual. Making liberal use of the volcanic vents and ziplines to rapidly cover terrain and scout out the parrot will make this challenge a little bit less tedious. This grants not only some vertical mobility (the jungle terrain is very uneven), but a better vantage point to spot the parrot from.

The best strategy I found, however, was to head over to J3 on the main map’s grid, where you will find an expedition outpost (red building), which is circled yellow on the map provided. This building always contains a number of Ballers within. These are amazing at scouting uneven terrain at high speeds, allowing you to track down the parrot quicker than any other strategy, short of spotting from the Battle Bus drop. If you’re not a fan of The Baller, it also spawns hoverboards, which are almost as good, but offer less protection against aggressive players.

A rather interesting challenge less reliant on a player’s ability to decipher clues (or follow a guide) and more on sharp eyes. No doubt part of the reason this challenge was concocted for the jungle biome was to leverage all the unique mobility options and terrain unique to the jungle. Still a welcome break from typical clue based challenges and Battle Pass gated challenges, proving that Epic can still surprise us time to time.

This Fortbyte follows on from Monday’s Fortbyte #43 and Sunday’s Fortbyte #20.
