Finding forbidden places is one of Fortnite’s many weekly challenges.
Completing it will give you extra XP to help you get lots of Fortnite Season 7 rewards.
If you’re just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can give you some helpful hints.

New additions include Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection, and Eren Jaeger skin. It’s a good idea to know how to get XP quickly in Fortnite.

How dancing in forbidden places works
For the week 1 challenges, you have the following task:
- Dance in different forbidden places (5 in total, 10 battle stars)
On the other side of the map are signs with a dancer with a crossed line.
If you stand in front of one of these and use an emote (default is the B key on PC or Down on the D-Pad on console), you’ll add one to your challenge total. A message will appear on the screen if successful.
As with other challenges, you must complete them while playing matches (you cannot enter the map without other players), so you will have to avoid combat encounters while trying to find each location.
Keep in mind that you must complete the game in order to finish the challenge; abandoning the game as soon as you collect it will not work.
If you’re struggling, we recommend playing the limited-time modes, ideally those where you’re part of only one of two teams, making it easier to explore the map without running into adversaries.
