Nuts and bolts have no no specific location in Fortnite. However, you will always find them inside the same container: a red tool box !
These toolboxes appear random on the map, and are similar in size to ammo boxes. You will quickly notice them thanks to their red color if you are attentive enough. This is what it looks like a toolbox containing nuts and bolts :

open it to get the nuts and bolts that are inside! These will then be added to your inventory when you pick them up.
Once you have nuts and bolts, you can use them to upgrade some weapons. These will not only become more powerful, they will turn into weapons that were present in season 6. Here are the different possible combinations:
- Nuts and bolts + assault rifle = burst assault rifle
- Nuts and bolts + submachine gun = rapid-fire submachine gun
- Nuts and bolts + shotgun = lever action shotgun
These nuts and bolts replace the animal bones and mechanical parts featured in season 6!
