How Do I Place a Video Camera in Fortnite?

If you’re a Fortnite player looking to step up your game, you might want to record your gameplay to analyze it later. That’s where video cameras come in handy. Here’s how you can place a video camera in Fortnite.

Step 1: Find a Video Camera

To place a video camera, you need to find one first. Video cameras are scattered across the Fortnite map and can be found in various locations. Keep an eye out for them while exploring the map.

Step 1.1: Check Named Locations

Named locations such as Tilted Towers, Pleasant Park, and Retail Row are good places to start looking for video cameras. They are often found on rooftops or other high places, so be sure to check these areas thoroughly.2: Check Unnamed Locations

Video cameras can also be found in unnamed locations such as small buildings or houses that are scattered across the map. These locations may not be as obvious as named locations, so keep an eye out for them while exploring.

Step 2: Pick Up the Video Camera

Once you’ve found a video camera, approach it and press the interact button (default key is E on PC). This will pick up the camera and add it to your inventory.

Step 3: Place the Video Camera

Now that you have a video camera in your inventory, it’s time to place it where you want it. To do this, open your inventory by pressing the tab key (PC) or touchpad (console) and select the video camera from your inventory.

  • PC: Click on the camera icon in your inventory and drag it to where you want to place it.
  • Console: Highlight the camera icon in your inventory and press the button assigned to “place” (usually X on Xbox and Square on PlayStation).

Step 4: Adjust Camera Settings

Once you’ve placed the camera, you can adjust its settings by interacting with it again. This will bring up a menu where you can change the camera angle, zoom, and other settings.

Step 5: Start Recording

To start recording, interact with the camera one more time and select “Start Recording” from the menu. The camera will start recording your gameplay and save it as a video file that you can access later.


Placing a video camera in Fortnite is a simple process that can help you improve your gameplay. By following these steps, you’ll be able to place a camera in no time and start recording your gameplay for analysis. Just remember to keep an eye out for cameras while exploring the map and use them wisely to gain an advantage over your opponents.
