This Metal Gear Solid collaboration with Fortnite allows players to get their hands on the new Solid Snake outfit by completing a series of challenges. Among them is to find and hide in the Cardboard Box for 10 seconds and travel a distance while using it. Finding the Cardboard Box can be challenging, but here’s a quick guide on where and how to find it.

Where to Find the Cardboard Box in Chapter 5, Season 1

A guaranteed way to get a Cardboard Box is to land on the northern side of Lavish Lair, one of the best landing spots in Fortnite, and interact with the Solid Snake NPC (marked on the map above). The Solid Snake NPC will sell you one for 100 gold bars, ensuring you can use it to complete the quest. Visiting Lavish Lair at the beginning of the match is advisable to avoid running into opponents. The Solid Snake NPC is quite popular, so beware of other enemy players looking to interact with him.

Players can also find the Cardboard Box anywhere on the map as ground loot or in chests. The box spawns randomly on the map, but few can be found in a single match since it’s a mythical item. Chances of stumbling into one while evading the storm circle are pretty slim, but if you look in enough chests, you may succeed. Alternatively, you can find the Cardboard Box by defeating an enemy player who has it equipped.
