Where to find an Air Strike in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2

Before you can call in an Air Strike on a tank in Fortnite, you’ll first need to find an Air Strike item. These are located around the island as floor loot, but they can also appear in Chests and Supply Drops.

Air Strikes are classed as Legendary items, so the chances of finding one are quite slim. But if you keep searching with one eye on the ground, you’ll stumble across one eventually.
