Where to Find Weapon Cases in Fortnite

When you’re dropping off of the Battle Buss, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled on the map for a symbol that appears to be a red and white eye. These bases contain plenty of loot, alongside the chance for a Weapon Case to be found. You’ll just want to keep your eyes peeled when you’re inside these locations for a secret entrance to the room where these weapon cases can be found.

You’ll find these secret rooms hidden behind another object. In the example above, you’ll see the symbol on the right side of the box that I’m breaking open, meaning that there is something hidden back here. Once you break open the secret entrance and open the door, if there is one, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a variety of weapons to choose from.

Once you’re inside, approach the Weapon Case and press the interact button that shows on your screen to get one of the weapons to pop out. You can take all of the weapons in this room, so you don’t need to worry about picking one you think you may like and getting stuck with a dud. The weapons will pop out right before the cases, so approach them and pick them up. You’re all set with a powerful new weapon, so get onto the field and start racking up some eliminations.

Where Are The Bases In Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 1?

Before you drop, make sure that you’re checking the map to find the spots where these bases can be found. There are eight bases in total, each with their own unique mode of entry. In the photos above, I was entering the Weapon Case room by accessing the base located near Classy Courts. Reckless Railways, on the other hand, is located under the train tracks in an underground base. Experiment and find which entry point is easiest for you to access.

You’ll find these bases in the following locations in Fortnite Season 5 Chapter 1:

  • Hazy Hillside.
  • Classy Courts.
  • Reckless Railways.
  • Ruined Reels.
  • Pleasant Piazza.
  • Ritzy Rivera.
  • Snooty Steppes.

Now that you know where you should be searching to get your hands on these weapon cases, make sure that you’ve got the Grappling Blade ready to go so you can make a quick getaway.
