Chests are a type of container in Fortnite: Battle Royale. Alongside Floor Loot, and Supply Drops, Chests are the primary method of obtaining loot in the game. Chests are found across the map, and make a distinct noise when close to them.
Each type of chest works effectively the same. Chests are opened by the player, either by interacting, or destroying them. After this, chests will spill out different types of loot, depending on type. A regular chest will award a Weapon alongside its Ammo Type, 30 of one type of material, and two consumable items, one of which being a healing item. Some chests will also drop Bars.
Chests come in several different varieties. Many of them are limited time, only exist in a certain season, or at a certain point in the year.
- Despite Chests not currently having a 100% drop rate, chest spawn locations are visible when at a distance. The chest then disappears on closer inspection.
- Freezers are technically chests despite not being named as such. Due to this, they will count for challenges requiring the player to open chests.
- In earlier patches of Battle Royale, destroying a chest deleted the loot that it dropped.
