Dead Drop Locations

In Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 1, you will find Dead Drop locations scattered across the map, but will always be found in the different Seven Outpost locations. Alternatively, you will also find one at the named location Sanctuary, and at Mighty Monument, which has the big statue of The Foundation character.

Dead Drops are used for various quests, but in particular you will be using it during the data card collection challenge that was released as part of the story during week 9. When you arrive at one of the locations, you will need to look for a glowing object. This is usually something like an empty tree stump. Since most players are headed to Covert Canyon, the location directly west is the best area to head to complete the challenge.
