Fortbyte 7 is now accessible in Fortnite, and it’s one that requires some advanced preparation. Much like Fortbyte 92, this Fortbyte requires the use of a certain emote to unlock the Fortbtye. The description for Fortbyte 7 says that it is “accessible by using the Cuddle Up emoticon inside a Rocky Umbrella.” We’ll explain what that means and where to go to collect this Fortbyte puzzle piece in Fortnite.
Cuddle Up Emoticon for Fortbyte #7
Before you head out to collect Fortbyte 7 in Fortnite, you’ll need to equip a specific emoticon to your character. For this you will need the Cuddle Up emoticon, which is available upon reaching Tier 8 of the free Season 9 Battle Pass. Be sure to equip the pink bear head to one of your emote slots within the Locker before heading into a match to get the Fortbyte.
When you find Fortbyte 7, it will be inaccessible until you use the Cuddle Up emoticon close to it. Do so, and the Fortbyte will materialize, allowing you to take it. One more Fortbyte means one more tile will be revealed on the mystery image.
Fortbyte #7 – Rocky Umbrella Location
The next step to finding and collecting Fortbyte 7 in Fortnite is knowing where to look. Based on its description, Fortbyte 7 is found inside a Rocky Umbrella. While this isn’t a named location on the map, it is certainly a landmark that many players will recognize right away.
In between Loot Lake and The Block, you’ll see an excavated section of land in the shape of an umbrella. This is the rocky umbrella referenced in the clue and is where you must go to find Fortbyte 7. The rocky umbrella happens to be a cave that goes underground. We’ve circled the rocky umbrella location on the map below.
When you reach the rocky umbrella, head down towards the lower end of the umbrella ‘handle’ that goes deeper underground, and along the way you should spot Fortbyte 7 hovering above some scaffolding. You will need to build a quick ramp to reach it. We were lucky and found a Grappler in the chest nearby.
