All Floating Lightning Bolt Locations in Fortnite

Learn where to find all the floating lightning bolts in Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5.


Season 5 of Fortnite is off to an explosive start as the cracks above the Battle Royale map bring new worlds to conquer and floating lightning bolts to collect. Players who have purchased the Season 5 Battle Pass will need to find all the locations of the floating lightning bolts and collect them in order to gain some impressive rewards.

Floating Lightning Bolt Locations

Littered across the Battle Royale map in Fortnite are dozens of floating lightning bolts. In order to collect them for the Battle Pass weekly challenge, players will need to find them on the map, and then build their way up to search them. Finding a lightning bolt is as simple as looking out for a golden beam of light. There are several locations where the floating lightning bolts can be found, but to complete the challenge only 7 are required.
