Fortnite Drake's Map locations
Fortnite Drake's Map has now entered the standard loot pool, which means there won't be any specific locations where you can guarantee to find one in every match. Instead, keep searching Chests, Supply Drops, and keeping an eye out for floor loot until you spot one of the distinctive map items. Carrying Fortnite Drake's Map takes up one of the slots in your inventory, so if you're already at capacity you'll need to ditch an item or weapon to pick it up.

Once you've found Fortnite Drake's Map and collected it, you can select this item in your inventory to project a dotted line onto the island leading towards a location where you can collect treasure – if you've previously used buried treasure maps or vault keycards in the game then this mechanic should already be familiar to you. A glowing beam of light will also shine up from the location, to help you identify it from a distance.
Follow the directions provided by equipping the map item until you reach your destination, where you should discover a glowing marker on the ground with a large X on it.
