Floor Loot is a gameplay mechanic in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It details the way that most Loot in the game is collected, aside from dropping from Chests or eliminated enemies.

Functionality

Floor Loot is a persistent loot system that has been available since the launch of the game. Every location on the map, whether it is a Named Location, a Landmark or a nondescript area of the map, has a set number of Floor Loot locations, which depending on the playlist, or by random chance, will spawn loot. These areas can either spawn an item in the pool, or nothing.

Floor Loot can be almost any item in the game, aside from items specially spawned from things such as Bosses or Trading with Characters. The rarity of an item defines how likely it will be to Spawn as Floor Loot:

  • Common - Most Likely to Spawn
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary - Very unlikely, specific items or LTMs only.
  • Mythic - LTMs only.

Item rarity is not the only factor as to how common an item is to appear as Floor Loot, (as of Chapter: Season 5) as something like an Uncommon Charge Shotgun has a lower chance of spawning than an Epic Shockwave Grenade, despite being a lower rarity. As such, each item has a specific spawn rate percentage.

As a whole, the most common items to spawn as Floor Loot are Ammo, aside from Rocket Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Rocket Ammo.

Trivia

  • Presents are one of the few Legendary items that can spawn as Floor Loot, as they bypass the rule for the rarity of an item to affect its spawn rate.
