There are a few ways to find and collect Candy. The primary method of obtaining Candy in Fortnite is searching Candy Buckets. Candy Buckets are available at all the POIs on the Island, except for Kado Thorne's Strongholds: Sanguine Suites, Relentless Retreat, and Eclipsed Estate, as well as Rumble Ruins. You can find additional Candy Buckets spread throughout the Grasslands, Farm, and Teal Foothills Biomes.

Alternatively, you can get Candy by going trick-or-treating! Ring doorbells across the Island, and you will receive Candy in honour of the holiday.

Lastly, defeating guards and bosses awards Candy, too! While you can't find Candy Buckets at Sanguine Suites, Relentless Retreat, or Eclipsed Estate, you can visit these locations and confront Kado Thorne, the Diamonds Dealer, and the Hearts Dealer to get Candy. More Candy awaits at Slappy Shores, MEGA City and Rumble Ruins, courtesy of the Club Dealers, and you can find The Dealers at Forecast Towers.
