Fortnite foraged items provide an alternative route to increasing your health or shields, by consuming foragables you can find all over the island. They may not provide a huge boost on their own, but you're able to carry lots of them at once and with plenty of them available the effects soon stack up. From time to time these foragables will feature in Fortnite quests, which means it pays to know exactly where to look for a specific fruit or vegetable – they tend to appear in logical locations, with mushrooms growing under trees in forests, corn being harvested from fields, and coconuts appearing along the tropical coasts.

If you've got a spare inventory slot going, you can store each particular type of foraged item, so that you have some to eat on the go. They can be great for quickly topping off your health or shields if you've taken a little bit of damage, and you can also carry up to 15 of each item in a stack, making them great alternatives to other Fortnite resources such as bandages and shield potions. If you need to consume foragables to complete certain quests, or you just want a quick pick-me-up to heal yourself, we've got details on where to go to find the various types of Fortnite foraged items.
