Are you struggling with how to hide in bushes that you threw down in Fortnite? While Fortnite is known for its hectic firefights and sweaty behaviour, there are times when playing slightly more cautiously works better for players. When the storm’s drawing in and you’ve got nowhere else to go, sometimes creating your own cover is the key to survival.

Luckily, the latest item drop has delivered new ways to survive encounters and help you complete a challenge to hide in different bushes that you’ve thrown down. However, it’s entirely possible you’ve forgotten how to do this and need a refresher, or it’s your first time coming across this new mechanic. 

If you want to know how to hide in different bushes you’ve thrown down in Fortnite, you've come to the right place.

If you’ve been playing Fortnite for a while now, you’ll most likely be aware that hiding in bushes can essentially make you invisible in fights. As the match comes to a close, you want to ensure you’re as hidden as you can possibly be.

Unfortunately, sometimes they reside outside of the circle, end up destroyed or are few and far between. If you run into that situation, luckily the newly added Bush Bomb item can help you out. These are found across the map but are much rarer than other items you can pick up.

Once you have one in your possession, you will be able to throw it down and use it to hide within it. You can even throw down multiple and make a small wilderness area around yourself.

For this week’s challenge in Fortnite - which asks you to hide in different bushes you’ve thrown down - you will only need to use two. Once you have them on the ground, simply stand inside each of them to complete the challenge.

Bush Grenades are also great if you equip the Augment known as Bush Warrior, which regenerates your health while standing inside one. Using these two together is a great tactic, and may even swing the Fortnite match in your favour.
