Top 5 places to land in Fortnite Season 3

Here’s where you should land in Fortnite Season 3 if you’re looking for a win.

Published

on

Fortnite Season 3 is almost two weeks old, so most players have been able to work their way around the new locations on the map. We have some brand-new POIs along with several returning ones, meaning it’s time to analyze some of the best places to land.

For this review, we took a look at popularity, loot, location, and, finally, statistics from Novos. We didn’t rely on these statistics to completely inform our list, but it’s hard to deny that certain places offer players a better chance of winning their game.

We left two of the new POIs off of this map for different reasons. The Authority is the new Agency, which means it’s likely going to be the hottest place to land for the bulk of Season 3. Since this is the case, there’s always going to be a risk while landing here. You’ll get some good loot, but almost every game will involve a 50/50.

We left Fortilla off of the list because of its location and size. Finding Ocean and her Chug Jug can be a chore, along with looting the whole place and securing the vault. Once you’ve done that, you usually have to trek a long way to the next circle and spend almost all of your mid-game on the move. Both of these places are strong landing spots, but they aren’t in the top five – at least in terms of statistics, locations, and chances of surviving. Catty Corner is a different story, as you’ll see. Let’s get into the list.

5. Frenzy Farm

Our old friend, Frenzy Farm, remains one of the best places to land in the Fortnite Season 3 map. Apart from the water level and built-in Crash Pads, there’s very little that’s new about this POI. That’s one of the reasons that it’s the best spot to land – not as many people will contest you.

Frenzy used to be one of the hottest places on the map back in Chapter 2 Season 1. Since then, most of the attention has gone elsewhere, leaving the 19 chests that spawn here, nearly free. Frenzy is also located near the center of the map, making it a consistently short journey to the next circle.

4. The Yacht

We’re departing from the statistics, for a minute, to talk about one of the largest and most overlooked landing spot on the Season 3 map: The Yacht. The Yacht was one of the few POIs to get a chest upgrade in Season 3. The vault emptied out, but you can still find a chest and Supply Drop inside, guaranteeing you a Launch Pad.

The location is now larger, which means there’s more of a chance to loot-up before you have to fight. The zone is almost always far away, but there are plenty of Motorboats on the new Yacht, along with a Whirlpool to the West.

The overall placements from teams who land at The Yacht might not be the highest, but that could change in the future. We think that the rotation and amount of loot make it worthy of a top-five spot.

3. Sweaty Sands

Sweaty Sands is another location, like Frenzy Farm, that consistently proves itself to be among the best places to land – regardless of the size of the team or which mode you’re playing. There’s a whopping 36 chests in and around the area, and the lack of Season 3 changes has made it one of the lesser-contested landing spots in public matches.

What’s more, you usually don’t have to worry about other teams rotating to you once you clear the area. The Shark is underwater, for now, which means you can take your time and loot the whole area without worrying about a third-party engagement.

2. Catty Corner

Statistics are a fantastic way to analyze the best Fortnite landing spots, but they don’t tell the whole story. Catty Corner might be one of the most dangerous places to land on the Season 3 map, but it’s also home to some of the best loot in the game.

Surviving Catty Corner means leaving with the Impulse Launcher, Kit’s Charge Shotgun, vault loot, and any SMG you want. The problem is that this is a large POI with plenty of surrounding places to land. Winning a fight at Catty could mean that you’re safe for all of two minutes before another team rotates onto you.

Still, if you’re looking for some of the strongest loot in Fortnite Season 3, then Catty is your place. Land here if you want a fight, God-tier loot, and are confident in your skills.

1. Rickety Rig

The Rig was one of the casualties of the massive flood that hit the Season 3 map, but it didn’t go all the way under. In fact, this area is home to, arguably, the best landing spot on the map. There are several islands with plenty of loot, easy rotation in the form of boats and Whirlpools, and Slurp Barrels.

The reason that we put Rickety Rig at number 1 is because of the statistics. It’s consistently one of the top places to land by average placements – in both Arena and Pubs along with all team sizes. Winning this location also gives you a guaranteed Launch Pad in the opened vault – one of the only places to find such a treasure outside of the Mythic POIs. After that, you can wait for the Fortilla team to roll out for a chance at Ocean’s Chug Jug and Burst AR.

So, there you have it: the best named POIs in Fortnite Season 3. There are some better solo spots – to be sure – such as the boat that spawns randomly around the map. Most players know about this boat, now, and at least two or three opponents will land there in Arena matches.

We’ll have to see how the statistics change as the season continues but, for now, these are some of the best places to go if you’re looking to win.

All Fortnite Season 6 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 6 is here, and only a few Exotic weapons made it. Here are all Exotic weapon locations for the new Fortnite season.

Published

Fortnite-Season-6-Exotic-Weapon-Locations

Fortnite Season 6 marked the return of Exotic weapons to Fortnite. Not all of the Season 6 weapons are there, however, and they’ve moved locations.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season c, with the addition of crafting, the map changes, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 6 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include the Spire Jumpboots and the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.

What’s more, Epic added craftable items to the game that allow players to create unique weapons out of existing parts. For instance, a Mechanical Bow and two Shockwave Grenades make the Shockwave Bow – a massive upgrade from both weapons.

Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapon locations

Exotic weapons have returned to Fortnite Season 6, but not as many as we had in Season 5. These will be supplementary items rather than the focus of the season, which appears to be on the new crafting mechanic.

Many of the NPCs who sold these items in Season 5 have also either moved locations or don’t sell them anymore, so a new guide is needed. Here’s a map of all of the Season 6 Exotic weapon locations.

Fortnite Season 6 All Exotic Weapon Locations

As you can see, there are seven Exotic weapons and items currently available in Fortnite Season 6. These are the:

  • Hop Rock Dualies: sold by Gutbomb in Logjam Woodworks
  • Chug Cannon: sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin
  • Dub Shotgun: sold by Burnout south of Steamy Stacks
  • Grappler Bow: sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold
  • Unstable Bow: sold by Rebirth Raven northwest of Sweaty Sands
  • Raz’s Mythic Explosive Bow: dropped after eliminating Raz at The Spire

The good news is that, unlike last season, all of the NPCs that sell Exotics only spawn in one location – at least, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as Epic add more Exotics to Fortnite Season 6. We expect to see them takes things further as the season goes on, so stay tuned to more news on Exotic weapons.

Neymar skin in Fortnite

The new Neymar Jr. skin coming to Fortnite has been leaked, ahead of its full release expected on April 27.

There’s more than just one skin though, with four skin styles in total, as well as pickaxes and gliders.

The Brazil and PSG superstar is getting kitted out in some unique gear. Rather than wearing the strip of his club or national team, he’s wearing Team Neymar logos.

But, the color of one of the skins is very clearly inspired by the yellow, green and blue of the Brazil flag and football team.

The first images of Neymar’s skins were leaked by Twitter user @ESFortniteBR.

As mentioned, there’s more than just these four skins too.

There are two pickaxes, two gliders, a golden ball and what appears to be a Confedrations Cup trophy.

How to get the Neymar skin in Fortnite

Neymar cosmetics are expected to be a secret skin as part of the battle pass.
