In Fortnite, Holo Chests are unlockable containers that hold Rare, Epic, Legendary, or Exotic loot. Unlike other Chests, Holo Chests display their contents via a hologram, letting players know what’s inside.

Also unlike standard Chests, Holo Chests require a Key, found randomly across the Fortnite island, in order to open.

Alongside the specific weapon displayed on the projected hologram, Holo Chests also grant players a small amount of ammo for their new gun upon unlocking.

If you’re looking to complete the ‘Search Safes and Holo Chests’ quest, or you’re just looking for a strong weapon in Fortnite, here’s how to find and open these special containers.

Where to Find Keys in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4

Keys can be found in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 scattered randomly across the map as both Ground and Chest loot. They can also be purchased from Nolan at Frenzy Fields for 100 Gold Bars.

If you can’t find a Key, bear in mind that other players could drop them when eliminated , but only if they were carrying one or more themselves.

Additionally, two keys can be obtained instantly by activating the Keymaster Reality Augment. But you’ll have to luck out to get that Reality Augment, or spend a lot of Gold to reroll until you find it.

A maximum of three Keys can be held by a single player, and they do not carry over to future games. Of course, you only need a single Key to open most Holo Chests, and 2 at max for the highest tier loot.

Where to Find Holo Chests in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4

Holo Chests can be found all over the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 map and are located in the same place every game.

Chests tend to be located outside of shops or at minor POIs, though a few major named locations sometimes have a Holo Chest spawn. When a player has a Key in their inventory, Holo Chests will be marked both on-screen and on their map with a lock icon, when they’re close enough to one.
