Fortnite Season 9 is in full swing and players are working hard to complete the many challenges this season. While there are plenty of generic challenges, players are also tasked with tracking down Fortbytes across the map, and they have ranged in difficulty throughout the season. While some have been as easy as following a bird to find the Fortbyte 11 location, Fortbyte 53 requires a bit more work and coordination to get.
Players will want to make their way to the Abandoned Mountaintop Lair because the main task is to raise the disco ball hidden inside. The lair is just east of Snobby Shores, located on the northern mountain found there. Players will likely want to drop directly there from the Battle Bus as it is quite a climb when approaching from the ground.
Once players reach the lair, they will want to drop down inside and find the disco ball nestled between two dance pads. When learning how to unlock Fortbyte 60, players had to use a specific emote to solve that puzzle. For this one, players will need to dance on one dance pad while another player dances on the second pad.
While this Fortbyte is easiest to earn with a squad, there is also a good chance that many other Fortnite players are venturing into the Lair to do the same thing. While some players will likely be trying to earn this Fortbyte, there could very well be other players there looking to take advantage, so be prepared for a fight just in case. Hopefully, most players dropping into the Lair will be there for the same challenge and will help with getting an easy Fortbyte.
While most players are busy completing the Season 9 challenges, some players are using the game’s relatively new Creative Mode to create some fascinating creations. One dedicated Fortnite player recreated Pokemon Red and Blue in Fortnite with surprising accuracy.
While Fortnite is now commonly known for the Battle Royale, it’s still nice to see players using the other assets to make some awesome creations – plus they are a great break from the constant seasonal grind. Hopefully, the remaining Fortbytes will be as easy to snag as 53 is.
Fortnite is out now in early access for Android, iOS, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
