Here’s how to collect an item from a Combat Cache in Fortnite:

  1. Hop into a Fortnite match.
  2. Wait for approximately eight minutes until the Combat Cache marker appears on the map.
  3. Head towards the Combat Cache location.
  4. Approach the Combat Cache and press the Interact button.
  5. Wait 50 seconds for the Combat Cache to open.
  6. Collect the loot that falls out of the Combat Cache.

Since you’ll have to wait 50 seconds in order for the Combat Cache to open, we recommend stocking up on weapons and healing items before you visit it so that you’re prepared for enemy attacks.

You should hurry to the Combat Cache as soon as it spawns on the map as the value of the loot will decrease as time passes, and this will be showcased by the color of the beam of light changing.
