What Are Hideouts in Fortnite and Where to Find Them

Why do you need to go inside a hideout in Fortnite?

Fortnite‘s world has been growing since its launch and for players who haven’t been on the island since the beginning, there might be some hidden gameplay features or never-before-seen locations. Hideouts are probably one of those Fortnite features that you wouldn’t know about unless you are interested in destroying dumpsters or visiting the Frenzy Farm. Now, you know that there are some places in the game called Hideouts, but what are hideouts in Fortnite, and how they can benefit you in the game. We’ll answer these questions shortly.

What Are Hideouts in Fortnite?

As the name declares, hideouts are some specific locations in the game that can hide you from plain sight. Objects like Dumpsters or Hay Bales allow you to hide inside and keep yourself away from the enemy’s sight. Although some people don’t like camping, hideouts in Fortnite are some of the best places for camping and eliminating the enemies from behind their backs.

Where to Find Hideouts in Fortnite

While dumpsters are available in various locations on Fortnite‘s island, the Hay Bales are only available in Frenzy Farm. So, if you attempted to pass through Frenzy Farm, keep an eye out for the Hay Bales as they could host an enemy inside.

Now that you know how to find and use hideouts in Fortnite, you probably have some new burning ideas for terrorizing the enemies, but note that there are a lot of players out there who probably have the same knowledge as you. So, don’t get surprised if hiding inside a dumpster turned you into an easy target for other players.

Fortnite is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and PC. The iOS version of the game has not received any updates since the clash between Apple and Epic Games started.
