Cosmic Chest in Fortnite

Cosmic Chests are mysterious objects that contain some awesome loot, so here’s how you can find them on the Island in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8.

Fortnite Season 8 is here, and there’s a ton of new content to sort through, including the Carnage skin, Sideways dimension, and a brand-new Battle Pass to sort through.

One of the main additions from Season 7 that remains is Cosmic Chests. Much like the Bunker Chests in Season 6, you can loot these for some nifty loot. However, you’ll need the help of your entire squad in order to open them.

Once you’ve found one of these Cosmic Chests, you’ll need the help of everyone in your Fortnite squad if you want to open it up and get your hands on all the neat loot inside.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Hop into a game of Fortnite as part of a trio or squad
  2. Approach a Cosmic Chest with your teammates
  3. Everyone in the squad needs to take turns hitting the weak spots of the Chest
  4. Once the shields are down, you can loot the Chest.

Since Season 8 only launched recently, we don’t currently know if the method to open Cosmic Chests has changed. One notable difference is that they seem to drop larger quantities of loot than before.

What is inside Fortnite’s Cosmic Chests?

There is a wide variety of loot that you can get your hands on once you open up one of the Cosmic Chests on the Island. You might find an extremely powerful weapon if you’re lucky.

According to notable Fortnite HYPEX, Cosmic Chests drop a new resource called Rainbow Ink in Season 8. These can be used to customize your personal Toona Fish skin in the game.

You can collect a maximum of 250 of these from Cosmic Chests each week in order to unlock different appearances for Toona Fish.

Where to find Cosmic Chest in Fortnite Season 8

Before you can open a Cosmic Chest, you’ll have to search for it on the Island. Ideally, you should try doing this with your entire squad so that you can immediately access it once it has been located.

The random nature of these Cosmic Chests can cause them to spawn at slightly different locations based on where your team is. You’ll likely see them before the first zone starts closing in.


We’ll update this article with the exact locations to search as Season 8 continues. For more Fortnite, check out how to unlock the unicorn Fabio Sparklemane skin.
