As fans explore update v28.10, they are wondering where they can find Solid Snake in Fortnite.

After a month without a fresh update, Epic Games finally returned from their holiday break and released update v28.10 to Chapter 5 Season 1. Although you might not notice many gameplay adjustments beyond a buff to the Enforcer AR, the patch brought the Metal Gear franchise to the Battle Royale. Those who complete Solid Snake Battle Pass Quests can earn the former spy's skin for free, and you might just come across his EMP Stealth Camo.

Solid Snake is not just in the Battle Pass bonus rewards, though. Fans can also find the NPC in-game, equipped with several items avaiable for purchase. Here's exactly where Solid Snake is on the Fortnite Underground map.

Solid Snake is located on the small island just north of Lavish Lair in Fortnite. You can find the NPC walking around the area, as indicated by three dots on your map.

Those looking to obtain a Cardboard Box and EMP Stealth Camo can purchase either item from Solid Snake. You will have to use both new additions to complete several of the Solid Snake Battle Pass Quests, and buying them from the NPC himself is the easiest way to accomplish the in-game tasks.

How Long is Solid Snake in Fortnite?

Solid Snake is in Fortnite until Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 drops on Mar. 8, 2024. At the time of writing, fans have over a month to visit the NPC and unlock his skin from the Battle Pass before he disappears.

Based on other crossovers in Fortnite's history, it could be months or even years before Solid Snake comes to the Item Shop. Fans who want to get the skin should complete the two pages of quests as quickly as possible.

When is the Next Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 Update?

The next Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 update likely drops on Feb. 6, 2024. Reliable Fortnite leaker, ShiinaBR, posted that update v28.20 will release on that date, just two weeks after update v28.10.

The next Fortnite update is rumored to include a second collaboration with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
