If you're looking for the latest hidden puzzle piece in the game, we're about to show you where you need to land

Where is Fortnite Fortbyte 48 in Epic’s battle royale title? Another day has dawned, so that means there’s another puzzle piece that has just released into Fortnite. This one will indulge the aggressive streak within you as you smash a Fortnite gnome beside a mountain top throne.

If you’re unfamiliar with this type of task, the Fortnite Fortbytes locations challenges set you a new computerised chip to find each day and, with each one collected, an in-game image in the Fortbytes task tab is slowly revealed. Speaking of Fortbytes, the next one to find is Fortnite Fortbyte 48.

As with quite a few of the recent challenges like this, to get Fortbyte 48, you need to have progressed to at least tier 55 of the Battle Pass. This unlocks the Vox Pickaxe you need – attempting to bash the gnome in with a random harvesting tool will not work. So, provided you’ve done that, here’s where to find Fortnite Fortbyte 48 using a Vox Pickaxe to smash gnome by mountain top throne.

Fortnite Fortbyte 48: use Vox Pickaxe to smash gnome beside mountain top throne

The Fortnite mountain top throne in question can be found on a hill northeast of Happy Hamlet. On the hill you’ll find the ‘throne’ surrounded by trees. It is, in fact, a toilet, with an appropriately-placed bin next to it, and the gnome you need to smash with the Fortnite Vox Pickaxe on the other.

It’s on the right side of the toilet as you look at it. Then all there is to do is smash the gnome with the correct harvesting tool and Fortbyte 48 in Fortnite is yours. We just recommend you do your business somewhere a little less, err, exposed.
