In order to use a tent just throw it on the ground and let it assemble. Once it assembles it will allow you to use the tent features. You can find tents as an item, deserted on the island, or by claiming one of someone else. There are 3 features of a tent in Fortnite Chapter 3.

  • Rest: The first and the most basic use of a tent is to rest. Just like a campfire, you can use a tent to rest and heal yourself. Although it will only heal your HP and won’t fill up your Sheild.
  • Stash Items: This is a very interesting feature, usually one might think you could only stash your items to use them later in the same match. But tent allows you to get the stashed items even in future games. There are 3 slots for you to stash your items, the first 2 slots are free, the third slot requires you to pay in order to use it. You can use this feature to store items or guns in a tent.
  • Pack a tent: Exactly what the name suggests, just stash the items, pack them, and carry the tent around.

The tent is very useful and one might even consider it a broken item. It just takes one slot in your inventory but you get to store two items in it (three if you pay) while allowing you to heal yourself. And even if you abandon your tent you can find your items in it. Although you can’t store or retrieve all items in all game modes. That means some game modes won’t allow you to stash items by showing them as Unstashable. Similarly, you won’t be able to retrieve an invalid item, it becomes invalid based on your previous and current game mode.

The best way to use a tent is to carry it around till the end game. Store your best items in it after winning, or if you think you are about to die then stash it before dying. And in the next match, you have the best items as soon as you find a tent.
