Where to find Holo Chests in Fortnite
The easiest way to find a Holo Chest in Fortnite is to first add a Key to your inventory. Keys are found as ground loot, in chests, and are usually awarded for capturing Capture Points. Once you have a Key in your inventory, Holo Chests will be marked on your mini-map with a small white padlock icon.
Generally, named locations are a great place to look, but you’ll be able to track down Holo Chests simply by exploring clusters of buildings around the map. Vehicles can really help here, especially the new Rogue Bike.
You can see Holo Chests in the image above. They are small, grey chests that project holographic images of weapons above them. Most require a single key to unlock, but there’s usually one that requires two. The two-Key locks generally contain Exotic weapons and items.
