What Are The Best Locations on The Map in Fortnite?

by Phirex

Fortnite can take a lot of getting to grips with, especially for players who are brand new to it.

One of the things that has a major impact on your chances of winning is where you initially land on the map. Your starting base should be selected very carefully indeed as a result.

So with that in mind, what are the best locations on the map for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2? 

Map changes for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2

We should start with new map changes that were introduced for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. 

Fortnite’s popularity with players around the world is partly down to how often the game is updated by Epic Games, creating new challenges that players will have to learn to master.

There are a handful of new landmarks to be aware of in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. One of the most important of them is the Box Factory at G7, with the GHOST House in D5 also vital.

Henchmen and Fortnite vaults are also available in no less than five locations. Next, let’s have a look at all of the best locations on the Fortnite map in some more detail.

The Yacht

Found on the north-east of the map is The Yacht, which is well worth exploring.

There are a number of different rooms inside the yacht. There is even a helipad and a mini jacuzzi as well as a bar and Meowscle’s kitten room.

Get Meowscle’s Peow Peow Rifle by successfully battling him in the main room in order to have a great chance of success in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2.

The Rig

Head down to the south-west corner of the map to find The Rig, which is near Slurpy Swamp.

TNTina is the boss that will have to be beaten at this location, though she sometimes appears closed to Slurpy Swamp itself instead.

The Rig is worth checking out in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 as it is home to quite a few easter eggs, such as a Green Lantern reference, to find.

Blueprints for a Vindertech Pulse Rifle can also be picked up in this part of the map.

The Shark

Over to the north-west corner of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 now, as this is where players will be able to find The Shark.

Built on a rock shaped like a shark – hence the name! – The Shark is an Agency base that can be located to the west of Lockie’s Lighthouse. 

The E.G.O. prison base has a cave inside, with Skye and the Ghost faction in control. But if you can beat Skye, you will pick up the ID card that you need to access a vital vault inside.

Chests can also be collected on both the tip of the nose and tail of The Shark – don’t miss them!

The Grotto

Next up is The Grotto, which is in the eastern part of the map on Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. 

To get there, players should head a little bit to the northeast of Retail Row or you can also find it via the Dirty Docks to the south.

Mostly underground, The Grotto is arguably the coolest of the new locations in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 due to the stunning entrance that can be accessed via the sea.

It is a busy drop when landing at The Grotto in Fortnite, but the pay-off is well worth it. Chests are found all over the maze of corridors, while the NPC boss Brutus is near the vault as well.

The Legendary Minigun that can be won by beating Brutus is a must for anyone hoping to land a big win on Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2.
