How to increase Heat Level using a Burner Pay Phone in Fortnite

Increase your Heat Levels with ease.

With the new Fortnite update titled Most Wanted, Heat Levels were introduced. The normal way to level up is by eliminating opponents and opening vaults. As you level up you will gain buffs, but you will also be more visible to enemies on the map. The Burner Pay Phones can help you get the maximum Heat Level by sacrificing some gold bars. It can be quite difficult to find all of them because they are scattered across the map. We prepared a guide to help you use the Pay Phones and learn all of their locations.

How to use Burner Pay Phones in Fortnite

Make your way to a Burner Pay Phone and interact by pressing E on PC, X on PlayStation and Y on Xbox. An option will appear to increase your Heat Level in exchange for 500 gold bars. Every increase using the Pay Phone will grant one Heat Level, the maximum being four Heat Levels. It can be used multiple times in a row, maxing out to 10 uses per Pay Phone. Do not forget to use your gold sparingly if needed elsewhere.
