Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 has begun, and enough changes have been made to the map to warrant a rethink on the best landing spots in the game. Some people want a quiet start, while others want to drop straight into the action.
Below, you will find some of the best landing spots for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6, and who exactly they will appeal to. No matter where you drop, you will be looking for loot and a good start to your game.
Best Landing Spots in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6
The Spire is right in the center of the map and connects to outlying areas via a multitude of ziplines. You can loot up fast here, but it tends to be a busy area at the moment. You can also find a Spire Guardian who will drop the new Mythic Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun weapon on death if you are feeling brave.
The nature of Slurpy Swamp means it will always be a good place to drop. Lots of loot at the Slurpy Factory combines with how easy it is to get full shields and recover from any early damage you take in gunfights.
Misty has been oddly quiet this season as people are drawn to areas of the map that have experienced a lot of change. This makes it a solid drop for players who like a quiet start, as it is still packed with loot, and you can grab a boat with easy and head somewhere else on the map in record time.
Sweaty is another spot that will always be a great drop. Plenty of loot, and a multitude of vehicle options so you can grab something with lots of gas and then hit the road. There are always lots of challenges in and around Sweaty, so we would suggest you get used to this area.
Colossal Crops is an interesting spot with lots of loot, plenty of food items, and some boars that you can farm up very easily. It does tend to be busy, however, so make sure you are in the mood to fight the second your feet hit the ground.
The risky drop
Chapter 2 Season 6 has introduced some secret hidden chests with a high chance to drop gold gear. If you want to start the game with a gamble, head to one of these secret chest locations and see what you get.
