Fortnite Fortbyte 78: where to find the ranger tower overlooking a drained lake

Looking to add an easy Fortbyte to your collection? Then pull out your map and over to Loot Lake


Where is Fortnite Fortbyte 78? We know that it’s hiding within a ranger tower overlooking a drained lake, so we have some idea at least. Epic’s sprawling map hosts a rich array of different land types, from thermal pools and deserts to snowy terrain and more green landscapes. So, going by what we know, it’s likely to be in one of the game’s greener areas.

That said, it can be easy to get confused over Fortnite Fortbyte 78 as the lake it’s in front of is not entirely drained – so don’t go wandering into the desert. This collectable certainly isn’t in the easiest of Fortnite Fortbyte locations. On the bright side, though, figuring out the location of Fortnite Fortbyte 78 is our only challenge, alongside survival of course.

There are no other conditions to get this micro puzzle piece like there were with Fortnite Fortbyte 82, which requires us to solve a pressure plate puzzle. So, when you’re ready, load your game up and read ahead, as here’s where to find Fortnite Fortbyte 78.

While you’re in Fortnite’s waiting zone, you can prepare for this collectable by pulling your map out. We’re heading over to Loot Lake, which is just north-west of the centre, so look there.


You’ll notice that at the top of Loot Lake there are two structures. The one to the left stands out as it’s bright white, but you’ll want to set a marker for the structure to the right as that’s the ranger tower we’re looking for.

As you’re swooping in, try and land at the top of the tower as Fortnite Fortbyte 78 is in the room at the top of the ranger tower’s staircase.
