With Season 5 of Fortnite well underway, here is a quick and dirty guide in helping players secure week one’s challenge: finding the locations of all the Lightning Bolt collectable item.

There are a total of 7 Lightning Bolt items needed for the challenge, however there more than that strewn about the massive Battle Royale map. Thankfully, due to an overwhelming active community, a map outlining the locations of all the Lightning Bolts has been made available and can be viewed down below:

For those interested in only securing 7 Lightning Bolts for the week’s challenge can do so by following along with a quick list of nearby bolts.

Starting with Greasy Grove, players will be able to find a Lightning Bolt near the bottom section of the area, specifically around the where the word Greasy is written on the map. By landing here, players should immediately spot the new pick up.

Moving on to Haunted Hills, players should make their way towards the mountains on the eastern side of the map. The Lightning Bolt will be nearby, by the cliffs.

Lonely Lodge is resident to a lone Lightning Bolt item, players can scoop it up by heading towards the left side of Loot Lake Island, near the docks. From here, players are encouraged to head on over to Lucky Lodge, where another Lightning Bolt can be found near the northern side.

Paradise Palms, one of the new additions for Season 5, has its own Lightning Bolt, which can be picked up between the left-handed greenery and the mountain area.

Going to Retail Row, players will find a Lightning Bolt item by going towards the letter, “A” in Retail Row, on the mini-map. The collectable will be indicated via a bright column of light, leading players straight to it.

Finally, a quick and easy Lightning Bolt can be found in Tilted Towers, smack dab in of the map, one of the harder ones to miss.

Fortnite is available to play for free on all major platforms and mobile devices.
