Week 10 has arrived, and with it, season 9 of Fortnite is winding down, along with its epic 100 stage Fortbyte hunt. Today marks the arrival of Fortbyte #33, which is found at a location hidden within the week 10 loading screen.
But that’s kind of misleading. Once more, the location is not actually hidden in the loading screen itself, it’s actually in the description of the loading screen once you go to view it after unlocking it. Here that is, if you haven’t done it yourself yet (you don’t need to have the loading screen to get this Fortbyte, although completing all the challenges for the week is a different Fortbyte).
It says “You’re a long way from Lonely Lodge…” which again, is misleading because you are now going not a long way from Lonely Lodge, but you are literally going to Lonely Lodge itself.
Where you want to go when you arrive is to face the main Lodge entryway, then turn 90 degrees left. You will find yourself staring at a small little shack with a log and fire out front. That’s where you’re going.
Here’s where this is on the map if that helps:
You open the door and the Fortbyte will be hard to miss, considering this is a one room cabin with pretty much nothing else inside but the Fortbyte. A chest can sometimes spawn on the roof of this place.
Lonely Lodge is not exactly a hot drop zone these days, but it might be today as everyone races to get one of the last few Fortbytes out there. So be prepared. This also could be one of your last chances to visit Lonely Lodge. Yes, it survived a volcano eruption nearby, but it’s awfully close to Pressure Plant where the giant robot is, and I would not be surprised to see it crushed in the ensuing battle next weekend. It’s been around a long time and it seems like it’s on the chopping block list along with a few other locations (Junk Junction, Fatal Fields) for replacement at some point in the near future. But we’ll see.
I believe there are only four Fortbytes total left after this one, and we’ll have guides going up for all of them, as ever. It’s been quite a ride and thanks for coming along with me as I’ve hunted down all these all season long.
