The Tents in Fortnite have quite a number of uses that are beneficial for players. The first and most significant use of the Tents is that players can huddle inside and heal. The feature works in Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads modes and is efficient in reviving teammates in case of enemy ambush.

The second use of Tents in Fortnite is to stash and retrieve items. This feature has quite an interesting aspect. Apparently, gamers can stash an item in one game, and can retrieve the same item in the next matches.

How to stash items and retrieve them?

Deploying the Tent in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 will reveal two options. One option will be of "Rest." Choosing this option will take the gamer inside the Tent for recovery. Players who are short on their HP can recover while they are inside the Tents.

The other option is "Manage Storage". Choosing this option will open four more options to choose from.


The first three options allow gamers to stack or retrieve items. If any slot is empty, loopers will be shown a short message to "Equip a Stashable Item". Gamers can stash any item of their choice using this option.

If gamers have stashed any items in the Tent in a previous Fortnite match, it can be retrieved easily. Gamers will be prompted to collect the item from the slot.

The third slot is locked and cannot be used until gamers pay the Gold Bars. The fourth option only allows gamers to pack the Tent.
