Where to find Fortnite Dirt Bikes

Fortnite Dirt Bikes can be used to earn Trick Points, by launching yourself into the air and then performing a variety of stunts to rack up the style – though you'll need to make a safe landing for those points to count. They're also a very useful way to get around the island, as they can scale rough terrain with ease and, more significantly, you can shoot your weapons at the same time as riding. This leaves you less exposed to attack and provides the opportunity to defend yourself, though you are still somewhat vulnerable as you ride Dirt Bikes in Fortnite as there isn't the same level of protection around you as you are afforded while driving cars.

Fortnite Dirt Bikes allow you to perform tricks while off the ground, though without a boost function you'll need to rely on ramps and your jump ability to catch some air. There doesn't seem to be any general reward in Fortnite for performing these stunts, but it's fun to see what crazy combos you can put together without biffing the landing and sometimes they're required to complete specific Fortnite quests. If you want to know more about these two-wheeled rides, then this is how to use Dirt Bikes in Fortnite.

You can find Fortnite Dirt Bikes all over the island, particularly in built-up areas and around residential properties or gas stations, so search those sorts of places and you should be able to spot one. On the map above we've marked specific Fortnite Dirt Bikes locations where they've spawned for us, if you want a more certain area to aim for, though remember that they don't all appear in every match and other players could ride them away before you arrive.

Fortnite Dirt Bikes have several differences from the other vehicles on the island, with the main one being that you can aim and fire your equipped weapon while driving it, rather than having to be a passenger to do this. That does mean you'll need to remember to use the left stick to control your speed, as the triggers now control aiming and shooting rather than the accelerator and brake. Dirt Bikes use gas like regular vehicles, so you'll need to keep an eye on the gauge to monitor your fuel level.

There are some additional controls unique to Fortnite Dirt Bikes, such as being able to Jump, PowerSlide, and perform stunts while flying through the air by holding the Trick button and pushing the left stick in different directions. While performing jumps and tricks you'll see a notification on screen of the particular move you're pulling off along with the current Trick Points score accumulated, though you'll only 'bank' those points if you successfully land. Trick Points appear to be based on distance, height, and air time, as well as the number of different tricks performed in the same move.
