After a few days of waiting, the best spots for chests have been uncovered for Fortnite Chapter 2 has given Epic Games’ uber-popular battle royale a fresh coat of paint with a new map, new loot pool, and some brand new mechanics. Players have been exploring the new landscape since the end of the black hole event – trying to find which locations have the best loot, and which are going to have the most players.

The easy answers would, of course, be somewhere that is directly on the battle bus’ flight plan, but if you want to stretch yourself for a further out drop, you could set yourself up with a lot of chests and some higher tier loot than normal.

Epic GamesYou can get loot from fishing in Fortnite, but chests are much easier.

Thanks to Twitter user Crash7_, the full chest count for each named location – not the landmark, but those actually named on the map – have been revealed. 

It might not surprise many fans, but Sweaty Sands has the most with 34 chest spawns, Dirty Docks runs it close though with 31, while Lazy Lake takes bronze and has 28. On the flip side of things, landing at Weeping Woods, Holly Hedges, and Slurpy Swamp will have fewer opportunities for chests as they hold 11, 14, and 18 respectively.

Of course, one of the trades off to a lack of loot at Slurpy Swamp is that you can build up shields by sitting in the water outside, breaking barrels, and even Slurp Juice fans for a quick buff. 

Eagle-eyed fans would have also noted that the returning POIs – Pleasant Park, Retail Row, and Salty Springs – are omitted from Crash7_’s initial list. The Fortnite fan also noted these locations as being on the weaker side, with 19, 18, and 12 respectively – and even included a few handy maps.

Regardless of how many chests one spot may have, that isn’t going to guarantee a victory royale as you will have to hope that the RNG gods are on your side with each one you open. 

You may have in line to open up an Epic Assault Rifle, but you could also easily end up with an uncommon Pistol and a handful of bandages.

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
