With a new season of Fortnite comes a slew of new map changes. However, the Fortnite Season 8 map is a bit underwhelming.
The map changes with each new season of Fortnite. Sometimes these changes are quite drastic like in Chapter 2 Season 5, and sometimes they are more subtle like in Chapter 2 Season 2. The Fortnite Season 8 map has taken a more subtle approach with its changes, but there is still plenty to discover.
The image below shows the new map with each large POI labeled. The most noticeable difference between Season 7 and 8 is the numerous new orange biomes. Outside of these biomes, there isn’t much that has changed.
Fortnite Season 8 new POIs
Sadly, there are only two “new” POIs this season. The word “new” is in quotes because they are simple changes to preexisting POIs. However, the new biomes offer a lot to be discovered.

The new POIs are Corny Crops and Sludgy Swamp. Both of POIs were abducted during Season 7. However, the Fortnite Season 8 map has managed to retain them in some fashion. Astonishingly, Coral Castle still remains on the map even after being abducted.
Other than that, the biggest changes are the new biomes. These are signified by the orange blotches all over the map. These are where players can find the new Kevin Cubes, zombies, and new weapons.
There may be other map changes implemented throughout the season, but for now, these two POIs are all we’ve been given. However, there are a bunch of landmarks around the map for players to discover.

How to get the Green Goblin Spider-Man skin in Fortnite Chapter 3
Fortnite Chapter 3 is adding another Spider-Man crossover skin. This time, players can dress as the iconic villain Green Goblin.
Spider-Man’s arch-nemesis Green Goblin is making his way to The Island. Here show you can get this villainous skin.
One of the most exciting crossovers in Fortnite history is the Spider-Man skins and web shooter. Fortnite has been littered with Marvel crossovers in the past, but this one is a fan favorite.
And in classic Fortnite fashion, just one skin from the Spider-Man series was not going to be enough. Outside of the MCU Spider-Man and the Zendaya MJ skins, Fortnite is also adding the Green Goblin.
How to get the Green Goblin skin in Fortnite
As of right now, we aren’t sure when the Green Goblin will release. He was added during the Fortnite v19.10 patch and is set to release sometime in the near future.
As for how you get the Green Goblin, that’s going to cost players some money. Yes, Green Goblin will be available in the Item Shop.
Like other Marvel skins, Green Goblin will likely cost the player 1,500 V-Bucks. He will probably come with a rideable glider and pickaxe.
In addition to Green Goblin, Fortnite has crossovers planned for Hawkeye as well as another Arcane collaboration. We will continue to keep this post updated as more information becomes available.

How to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3: upgrade benches and vending machines.
Fortnite Chapter 3 has a few ways to upgrade weapons. Here’s where to find the Fortnite upgrade benches and vending machines.
Crafting and Upgrade Benches are still the main means of upgrading weapons. Here’s how to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.
Fortnite Chapter 3 introduces an entirely new map which means new Upgrade Bench locations. While players can’t run to NPCs and get cheap and instant upgrades, it’s still possible to power up your gear.
From Weapon Upgrade Benches to Vending Machines, players can spend hard-earned bars to bump their weapons up a level.
Whatever you choose, this guide will help you figure out how to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.
Upgrade Benches Fortnite Chapter 3
The quickest but most expensive way to upgrade weapons is by using Fortnite Upgrade Benches. The Upgrade Bench is also the most reliable way to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Using an upgrade bench instantly bumps up the rarity of a weapon, but it comes at a cost. Players will have to spend hundreds of bars each time they want to upgrade their weapons. However, you just can’t beat the power of an upgrade bench.
Here is how much each upgrade costs while using a Fortnite Upgrade Bench:
- Common (grey) -> Uncommon (green) = 200 bars
- Uncommon (green) -> Rare (blue) = 300 bars
- Rare (blue) -> Epic (purple) = 400 bars
- Epic (purple) -> Legendary (orange) = 500 bars
The Fortnite.gg map below shows all of the Fortnite Upgrade Bench locations. In Chapter 3, there are 18 different Upgrade Bench locations. No matter where the next Storm Circle is headed, there’s usually a Fortnite Upgrade Bench nearby.
Vending Machines in Fortnite Chapter 3
The second way to “upgrade” weapons is by purchasing a better one from a Vending Machine. These are a much cheaper alternative to upgrading weapons, however, they aren’t as reliable.
This is because players won’t know what weapons a vending machine carries until they get to them. However, they can carry any rarity of weapons from Uncommon (green) to Legendary (gold).
Weapons from a Vending Machine cost 50 Gold Bars. This is a massive discount compared to the 300 bars it takes to upgrade a weapon from green to blue.
Below is a map that shows all of the Vending Machine Locations in Fortnite Chapter 3.
Chapter 3 has removed crafting, sidegrading, and sideways weapons. So while there aren’t as many upgrade methods as before, these methods are far more reliable.

Where to find the Spider-Man Web Shooters in Fortnite Chapter 3
Spider-Man was swung his way into Fortnite Chapter 3, and here is how you can harness the power of his Web Shooters.
One of the most exciting new items in Fortnite Chapter 3 is the Spider-Man Web Shooters. Here is where you can find them!
Crossovers with popular media icons are nothing new to Fortnite. This is especially true when it comes to Fortnite collaborating with Marvel superheroes.
During Chapter 2, Fortnite hosted an entire season that revolved around the mightiest heroes in the Marvel universe. Not only could players dress like these heroes, but they could also use their powers in-game.
For Chapter 3 Season 1, players can unlock the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man via the battle pass. However, everyone can use his web-slinging abilities if they find them on The Island.
Spider-Man Web Shooters location in Fortnite
Fortnite’s web-shooters were originally leaked as a purchasable item from NPCs. However, that’s changed since their official release.
Peter Parker has left various bookbags around the map that players can loot to Spider-Man Web Shooters. The map below shows the locations where players can find these bags.
They glow and make a noise similar to a chest which makes them easy to find. However, they’re usually attached to a wall or tree off the ground.
Each Spider-Man web shooter has 80 uses before it runs out. Due to a recent change, players can find fully charged web shooters when looting them from eliminated players.
If you want the true Spider-Man experience, you can unlock the friendly neighborhood superhero as a part of this season’s battle pass. Or try your hand at opening a vault, or grind the levels of the Battle Pass to unlock Spider-Man.
