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 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 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 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 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!
