As has become a little tradition now, Epic are releasing Battle Stars and Fortbytes on alternating weeks for those who complete their weekly challenges. Luckily for you, you don’t even need to dust off week 8’s challenges for Fortbyte #97: Found Somewhere Within Loading Screen #8.
Just in case you’ve been mightily out of the loop on all things Fortnite, Fortbytes are a new addition to Fortnite Season 9 and ask players to take on daily scavenger hunts. You earn a new cosmetic item every five or so Fortbtyes you collect, as well as the exclusive Singularity skin for collecting ninety across the season. We are also beginning to discover more and more about the Bunker Jonesy puzzle with just a couple of weeks until Season 10 kicks off.
Here’s everything you need to know for Fortbyte #97: Found Somewhere Within Loading Screen #8.
Fortbyte #97 Loading Screen
The Loading Screen in question is yours for completing eight weeks’ worth of challenges, though as already mentioned, you don’t actually need it to dust off this Fortbyte.
Loading Screen #8 features Jonesy (who later becomes Bunker Jonesy) and Peely playing a game as the world goes to heck around them.
Fortnite Season 9 Fortbyte #97 map
The Loading Screen points towards Fortbyte #97 being located in Lucky Landing, specifically in the “Dumpling Man” (I’ll be damned if I keep up with Fortnite food lore) building. F10 on the Fortnite map.
There are no special requirements with this one at all. Simply get to the building in Lucky Landing and make your way towards the room with weights and a bike and find the Fortbyte chilling on the floor. Easy as that.
Fortbyte #97 Video Guide
Not the most testing of Fortbytes, but Fortbyte #97 can definitely be confusing for those without the Loading Screen, and even then it’s not entirely obvious. It hints at an idea of where the Fortbyte is, rather than explicitly highlighting it in an area in the Loading Screen itself.
