Fortnite: Battle Royale has entered Chapter 2, which means a whole new map, new locations, and new potential drop locations for you. Where and when you drop is pretty crucial in Fortnite, but first, you need to decide if you want to farm or fight. Different locations will offer different things, with some popular spots getting your straight into the fight. You might prefer to land somewhere quiet, farm up, use an upgrade bench to get your weapons into good shape, then set out towards the next circle.
We’ve got some tips on where to land for the best loot, the most action, and even if you want to avoid an early game confrontation.
Best Landing Spots in Fortnite Chapter 2
This land is a reliable place, but it is growing more popular by the day, so it seems to be turning into a place to go if you want to start fighting early in the game. Plenty of weapons and shields are up for grabs, and there are lots of upgrade benches dotted around the area as well, with one located right in the middle of the factory.
Sweaty Sands has plenty of buildings, so lots of chances at loot. There is also a boat to be found here, and the river in the bay will give you easy access to the rest of the map.
Those looking for a quiet start to their game are going to find this to be a great spot. There are decent chances for loot if you are the only person around, an upgrade bench to get the weapons you find up a tier or two, and a boat down near the water make it an excellent spot to farm up, then head for the hot spot.
Head here if you pretty want to ensure you get in early fights. It seems to be a popular spot, with lots of loot potential if you get there early. It is on a higher elevation surrounded by hills, so expect a lot of elevated fighting to go down if you do drop here.
Good loot potential, lots of wood, and boats, this is another place that will probably offer you a quiet farm before heading to a busier spot.
Every time I have gone here it has been a death zone, so definitely thread carefully. Good loot and a lot of sneaky places to hide have made this landing spot a complete roll of the dice when it comes to making it out alive.
If you are willing to bet it all on winning early gun fights, Retail Row offers great loot potential, but you will have to fight for it. Popularity might drop off over time, as I think many people drop here due to it being a familiar spot from before the Black Hole got up to its shenanigans.
