Fortnite Stack Shack location

Fortnite Stack Shack sits on a small island, off the west coast of the map in grid A4. If you don't glide down to it from above then you'll need to have some mats in hand, as you can't directly access it from the water so you'll need to either build across to it from the mainland or construct a platform to climb up. Handily, a barrel is sat right outside the building, so you can grab a fishing rod from there straight away. With that in hand, you just need to cast into the water around Fortnite Stack Shack until you catch a weapon. If you aim for any fishing spots you can reach from the island then you'll have the best chance of catching a weapon, though if none are available you can just cast into the water and eventually you'll collect what you need, it may just take a bit longer to achieve. Good luck and happy fishing!
