Reality Seeds are a new useful mechanic that's made its way into Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Here's what you need to know.

If you're a player who likes prepping for the future, then Fortnite's latest addition of Reality Seeds might appeal to your nature. Reality Seeds are items which can be planted and will then bloom into Reality Saplings in your next match.

The seeds can be found in different rarities and planted anywhere on the map. In your next match, the seed will have grown into a full sapling and harvested to collect a variety of loot. What's more, the sapling isn't limited to just your next match, but will stay in that place for the matches following it. With each harvest, you'll earn more loot and the sapling will grow in rarity until it bears Mythic loot.

So, given just how useful these seeds can be, where can you find them?

To find Reality Seeds in Fortnite the clue is in the name. Your best bet at locating a seed is by the Reality Tree itself. This new POI is pretty massive and can be seen from quite the distance. To get to it, you'll need to head to the western side of the map, west of Titled Towers.

When you get there, you'll be on the look out for a pink bulb emitting a blue essence. This is a Reality Seed Pod which you can pick up and use.

How to Use Reality Seeds in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Using a Reality Seed is pretty simple. Equip it like you would any other item, head to the area which you want to plant it, and press the 'fire' button. Once planted, there's nothing more you'll be able to do with it in your current match so you can simply get on with the game.

Return to the location in subsequent matches to claim your loot once the seed has grown into a Reality Sapling. There are four levels of rarity which the sapling can grow into:

  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary
  • Mythic

The types of loot you'll earn from the sapling depends on its rarity. You'll need to clear away any weeds that grow around it otherwise it won't level up.
