There’s a world of difference with Fortnite’s newly drenched map in Season 3 but players may have already figured out the most successful landing locations in the battle royale.

While the many new locations in Season 3 can be daunting at first, deciding where to land is another challenge in and of itself. As with every new map overhaul though, players are already figuring out the best places to start your looting frenzy.

Much of the new map is segmented as bodies of water divide land like never before. There’s all-new vehicles to get you through the flooded locale, but where should you be looking to start your run?

A new set of data compiled by Novos has uncovered the most popular landing zones, along with the most successful landing zones to boot. Here’s a full rundown.

What are the best landing spots in Fortnite Season 3?

There’s a lot to take in with the new Season 3 map. But where should you be looking to land?

Since the launch of Season 3 on June 17, casual players and competitive veterans alike have all been looking to master the new changes. If you’ve been grinding as a lone wolf in the Arena playlist, you may be surprised to learn that one drop spot stands out from the rest.

Sweaty Sands has the highest success rate of any solo landing spot in Fortnite’s Arena game mode. Of all games played since the release, Sweaty Sands leads to a top 35 placement on average. This is significantly higher than any other location on map.

There’s a great deal of loot for players to snag and it also gives players a good amount of freedom. Once you know the position of the storm and where it’s headed, you can easily navigate to Pleasant Park, Salty Springs, or Holly Hedges.

If you prefer to play as part of a Trio, Rickety Rig has been highlighted as the most successful landing spot in Season 3. However, there’s not as much of a gap between the next best locations in this mode. The Yacht, Frenzy Farm, Steamy Stacks, and Holly Hedges come together in a closely contested top five.

Rickety Rig has been one of the best landing spots since Season 3 began.

Public matches differ from the Arena playlist, however. As solos have found more success in Steamy Stacks, duos at The Yacht, and Squads at Misty Meadows. 

Still trying to wrap your head around all of the new changes in Season 3? We’ve got you covered. Here’s our in-depth breakdown of the latest map overhaul in Fortnite.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Ruckus is holding both of the weapons in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
