Want to survive longer in Fortnite Chapter 2? Take a look at the five best landing spots for Arena Mode points and easy paths to victory.

Fortnite Chapter 2 is still relatively young. Only a select few players have had the chance to explore and evaluate the entire map just yet.

The Arena Mode grind also feels more intense than it has in years past. Playing for placements is the strategy of most players who want to rank up quickly, so we’ve compiled a list of five of the best landing spots for Solo and Squad Arena Mode.

Logjam Woodworks/Shanty Town

Logjam Woodworks, located directly southwest of Weeping Woods, is my personal landing spot for Solo Arena in Fortnite. You can get maximum wood in under two minutes from all of the pallets and leave with max metal as well.

There are four or five chest spawns, several floor loot spawns, and a handful of ammo boxes in the area as well. You’ll likely come across a fishing pole, and you can head to the swamp to do some fishing.

If you have zone, you can move over to Shanty Town to hit the Slurp kegs for the free shield, not to mention the glowing mushrooms on the way there. If not, you can rotate to Weeping Woods and finish off anyone who landed there.

I use Shanty Town as my bail spot for Logjam. If someone has a better drop than I do – or if Logjam is too contested – I’ll bail to Shanty to get some shields before I push.

You can also split-land with a squad between Logjam and Shanty. The two locations are close together and provide enough loot for four people.

Risky Reels

Risky Reels

Risky Reels was one of the fan-favorite locations that didn’t come back in Fortnite Season X, despite being teased through a projector screen near Sunny Steps.

In Fortnite Chapter 2, it’s an underrated landing spot for Solos that allows you to max-out your wood and metal before leaving. There are a ton of chests here as well, so you shouldn’t be hurting for loot when you rotate.

Risky Reels also sits near the middle of the map, meaning you won’t have to travel very far to hit your next zone. You can also rotate out of Risky to hit Frenzy Farm which should be home to several hot-droppers. 

Camp Cod

Camp Cod is the southernmost island on the map. It has awesome loot and enough materials for a whole squad to max-out. The only issue with this one is the zone. You’re going to have to travel a long distance in some cases.

From landing here a few times, there doesn’t seem to be many boats around. You’re gambling a far circle for some of the best loot you can get in an uncontested location.

Squads can all land here or split to some of the smaller landmarks on the nearby mountains. Be careful if other teams have the same idea, though.

The Orchard

The Orchard is one of the more popular landing spots on this list due to its close proximity to Frenzy Farm (The Orchard is just to the north). Frenzy has shown itself to be Fatal Fields meets Tilted Towers in Fortnite Chapter 2, which means 20% of the lobby is guaranteed to land there – at least in public matches.

The Orchard is big enough for a whole squad with enough loot and materials to go around. It also provides several safe and lucrative rotations, depending on where the next storm circle is located.

This one might not be the best for Solos because of its popularity. You’ll see two or three enemies land here every time, and one or two players will likely rotate here after landing at Frenzy Farm. Still, it’s a good landmark with a lot of loot.

Eye Land

Eye Land is the centermost point in the Fortnite Chapter 2 map, which means you’re automatically at an advantage. You can quickly cap your wood and get some metal and brick before moving onto your next looting spot.

There are several boats and fishing holes around the island as well. Overall, this is an ideal spot to land as a solo. There might not be enough loot for a squad, but you could always split-drop with half of the team landing somewhere like Risky Reels instead.

If you’re on the island, though, other players will likely rotate to you. It’s not the safest place on the map, but it does ensure you’ll never have to travel far to make it to the next zone.

So, there are five of the best places to land for easy wins and points in Fortnite Chapter 2 Arena mode. Let us know some of your favorite landing spots in the comments!

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Newly-added Exotics (Update)

February 24 Exotic Shuffle (Update)

On February 24, Epic shuffled some of the original and new Exotic weapon locations, giving them to new NPCs across the Fortnite map. The Storm Scout Sniper, Nighthawk Revolver, and Hop Rock Dualies now have new homes. You can view them on the map, below.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic shuffle the locations once again, so we’ll update this map and article if we see any more changes.

All love potion locations for Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenges

Here are all locations of Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold for the Fortnite Season 5 challenges.

Fortnite Fishstick Shot at love

One Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenge requires players to collect Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s where you need to go.

This week’s Fortnite challenges are a lot more difficult than ones we’ve seen in the recent past. We have to search several specific locations to help Fishstick find love and, more importantly, earn some XP.

Here are all of the Grimbles love potion locations in Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, and Stealthy Stronghold. You only need to find one, so this guide should help.

Fortnite Fishstick

Grimble’s love potion locations

You can find one love potion in each Coral Cove, Stealthy Stronghold, and Fort Crumpet.

The first, in Fort Crumpet, can be found on the bottom floor of the fort in a roped-off room. The Coral Cove potion is located behind the main building of the unnamed POI.

In Stealthy Stronghold, the potion is located in the middle of the POI, next to a chest in one of the ruins. Here’s a map that should help you out.

Deliver the love potion to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town

Once you find the love potion, you need to deliver it to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town. The easiest place to visit is Slurpy Swamp.

Here, you’ll find the location in that boxed-room that houses slurp barrels and a Teddy bear sitting on a chair. Frequent visitors of Slurpy Swamp should know the location all too well. All you need to do is interact with the love potion and receive your XP.

This is a difficult week of challenges for Fortnite players, but the XP is well worth the grind. You can take a look at the rest of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenges here.

Ninja goes off on the Fortnite community after getting stream sniped

Ninja returned to Fortnite to find the same old stream snipers. As expected, he gave them a piece of his mind.

Published

Ninja sounded off on stream snipers in the Fortnite community during one of his recent streams.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the primary streamers who helped Fortnite rise to the height of popularity we see it today. He’s stepped away from the game of late but often comes back to play a few rounds between his Valorant streams.

Although Ninja doesn’t take Fortnite as seriously as he once did, he still faces a large number of stream snipers who want to eliminate him for clout. Ninja has always been outspoken about stream snipers but went all-in during one of his recent Fortnite streams.

“The community – these little f***ing kids – It’s so dumb. It really is,” Ninja vented. “And the thing is, these little clout chasing losers have no idea, man. All they’re doing is harming the game. Because I’m not gonna play it. I’m not gonna stream it.”

(Clip begins at 3:38)

“Good for you, man. Get your f***ing clip, send it to your buddies,” Ninja continued. “‘We killed Ninja!’ I haven’t played the game in – ever. I don’t play it anymore. I come back and I still almost kill all of you idiots.”

Ninja went on to say that it must be far worse for players like Bugha, who won the Fortnite World Cup. If stream sniping is bad for someone like Ninja, then it must be far worse for an actual top competitive Fortnite player.

Ninja has done a lot of good for the Fortnite community, helping it become one of the biggest games of all time. Stream snipers may be a part of the reason he doesn’t play as much as he once did.

We don’t think Ninja will completely stop playing Fortnite, but the constant stream sniping is clearly getting to him. Hopefully, this doesn’t dissuade Ninja from continuing to experience the fun side of Fortnite.
