Shadow Briefings in Fortnite: All locations and how they work

Here is everything you need to know about Shadow Briefings in the new Fortnite season!

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 has introduced many weapons, items, and points of interest (POIs). However, the developers have decided to revamp the Job Boards from previous Fortnite seasons into a new idea, dubbed Shadow Briefings. These small computer terminals are your go-to options for various reasons, and this article will explain everything you need to know about them.

What are Shadow Briefings in Fortnite?

Shadow Briefings in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is an updated concept that replaces Job Boards from previous seasons. However, instead of the usual Bounty and generic tasks, the Shadow Briefings offer a bit more. Although you can still acquire Bounties, you can also order Supply Drops, acquire vehicles, and obtain maps to buried treasure.

Here are the four types of Shadow Briefings you will find on the Fortnite Island and what they do:

  • Plunder – Gives you a path to a pair of buried treasure chests.
  • Vehicle – Spawns a vehicle.
  • Supply Drop – Spawns a Supply Drop.
  • Bounty – Gives you a Bounty on another player.

To utilize Shadow Briefings, you must find and interact with one of the terminals around the map. Depending on the type that you see, it will perform one of the four actions listed above.

It’s worth pointing out that some Shadow Briefings do not have a 100% spawn rate in the current Fortnite season. In any case, the map shown above is from Fortnite.GG and showcases every potential spawn. We have found that the Bounty Shadow Briefings appear more often, but the spawn rate of the others is unpredictable.

How to complete the Supply Briefings Quest

A Quest is available in Fortnite that tasks players with finding and accepting Shadow Briefings. You can head to one of the numerous Bounty options to accomplish this. These are reliable since they spawn more often, and you can quickly complete the challenge this away. After accepting three, you are finished with the challenge.
