Where to find a Chrome Vortex in Fortnite

The Vortex is not always in one spot on the Island. It starts in different areas in each match and randomly travels around as the game progresses. While that may make it more challenging to locate, you can find it more easily by opening your map at the start of each round.

The spiral icons on the map signify where the Vortexes are on the Island. If your bus is traveling nearby or straight over, you can drop and fly right into it. Otherwise, you can land anywhere and still track it down by using your map and entering it from the ground.

What is a Chrome Vortex in Fortnite?

The Chrome Vortex is a tornado storm that travels randomly around the map, pulling debris and other loose objects into it. Unlike the regular storms, the Chrome Vortex also turns all the items it touches into Chrome, including players.

You can enter the Vortex by gliding into it or walking into it from the ground. It will immediately lift you and allow you to deploy your glider and fly away in any direction. This is useful for getting away from enemy players or entering the circle faster. Don't forget to deploy your glider by pressing:

  • A on Xbox
  • X on PlayStation
  • Spacebar on PC

Although the Chrome Vortex may seem like a dangerous threat on the Island, it can actually be instrumental in making a quick getaway and allowing you to Chrome up. Having Chrome means you can Liquify and slowly heal up, as well as get around the map faster. Embrace the storm and utilize it to your advantage.
