There are a number of items you can use to heal yourself in Fortnite - bandages, medikit, slurp juice, chug jug, cozy campfire, and even Fortnite apples will give you a small health boost if you eat them. With the v7.30 update patch there is now a new way to recover some health, in the form of Fortnite campfires. These environmental campfires can be interacted with to activate them, and then provide 2 health regeneration per second to any nearby players for a 25 second duration - however, each foraged campfire can only be used once per match, so if you find one which just has smouldering embers where the wood should be then another player has beaten you to it.
Fortnite campfires are not the greatest source of health, but they can really help you (and your squad) out in a pinch, especially if you're getting towards the endgame without any healing items to hand. There are also rumours that upcoming Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges may make use of them in some way, so we're here to show you where to find all of the Fortnite campfires.

Fortnite Campfire Locations
We've been exploring the island to track down Fortnite campfires, had have marked around 40 known locations on the map above - if you need a closer look, then click on the image to expand it. They're fairly well spread across the map, though there are clusters at the Viking Village near Snobby Shores, Wailing Woods, and Lonely Lodge if you want a better chance of finding one unused. If you're with a squad in need of healing then make sure you've all gathered round before someone activated the Fortnite campfire, or if you're on your own then consider putting up some protective walls so you don't get sniped while hanging around to top up your health!
