Fortnite – How to Be a Bush

by Josh Hawkins

Over the past several months, Epic Games has worked hard to improve Fortnite and its free-to-play mode, Battle Royale. Now, they’ve made things even more interesting by adding a very useful disguise into the Battle Royale game that players can use to turn themselves into a bush. It’s a very useful disguise, and if utilized correctly, players can even use it to sneak up one unsuspecting enemies, allowing them to launch a surprise attack against them. Not sure how to use the Bush Disguise? Don’t sweat it! We’ve got all the details, and today we’ll go over not only how to use the Bush Disguise to turn into a bush in Fortnite Battle Royale, but also how you can make it work even better to your advantage.

How to Use the Bush Disguise

Before we dive into all the details, there are a couple of things we want to clarify before we get started.

First, the Bush Disguise is a Legendary Consumable. This means that you only get one use out of it, and it’s going to be extremely rare.

Second, the Bush Disguise will disappear upon taking any kind of damage. This includes damage from Storms, other players, and so on. So make sure you stay away from the Storm when you’re using this disguise.

While the Bush Disguise is very good, it’s not going to fool everyone, so make sure you try to use your surroundings to your advantage and make sure you fit in.

Now that we’ve gone over those details, let’s dive into the meat of this article.

How to Get the Bush Disguise in Fortnite

As we stated above, the Bush Disguise consumable item is an extremely rare item, and as such, you’re only going to find it within chest and supply drops inside of the Battle Royale mode. The best places to search for this are going to be chest spawns, which are often found in various places all across the map. Of course, you’re going to need to search for these spawns in areas that other players frequent, so make sure you’ve always got one eye on the area around you while you search.

The only other way to get the Bush Disguise outside of finding it in a chest or supply drop is to take it off a player that you’ve killed. This is usually going to be pretty tough to do, though, as most players will use the Bush Disguise as soon as they obtain it, making it impossible to loot it off their dead body. If you do get lucky, though, then count your blessings and use that disguise to get yourself out of dodge and to a vantage point where you can wait on your enemies.

Bush Disguise Tips

Now that you know how to get the Bush Disguise, and how to use it, let’s go over several tips to help you make the most of your time as a bush wookie.

First, stay outdoors. Nobody is going to believe your disguise if you’re running around inside of houses and buildings, so make sure you’re sticking to areas where bushes would often be found.

Try to blend in. This means look out for bushes around you that look similar, that you can lay in wait next to. Oftentimes players don’t pay attention to their surroundings if things look like they belong, so use that to your advantage to make the most of your Bush Disguise.

Don’t move around too much. Sticking in one spot as much as possible is going to make it less likely that the enemy will notice you, so try not to move around too much. You’ll also want to stay crouched, as standing up will expose a part of your character model, making you stand out like a sore thumb.

Finally, you’ll want to avoid the Storm as all costs. Any type of damage will undo your Bush Disguise, making it a waste of a good resource. Steer clear of the Storm edges, and you should be fine.

Now that you know how to get the Bush Disguise, it’s time to stock up on the best weapons in Fortnite Battle Royale. Also, don’t forget to take a look at our guide on how to increase your FPS if you’re having performance issues in Fortnite Battle Royale on PC.
