The Fortnite Battle Royale map continues to evolve with new places to find chests appearing every week – here are five places to find loot that you may not know existed.

Fights in Fortnite can often be won or lost due to your loadout – especially during early game encounters; no-one wants to battle a pump shotgun with a hunting rifle!

Chest locations at the various points of interest and around the vast Fortnite map are pretty well known by the majority of the community, but even gamers who have played since its inception may not be aware of some places were loot commonly spawns.

EPIC GAMESChests are the best way to upgrade your loadout, but floor loot can also give you epic and legendary items.

Where are the secret loot spots in Fortnite?

Picking up an extra weapon, ammo or healing item could be the difference between you securing an elimination or returning to the lobby – use these five secret loot spots to boost your chances of landing a victory royale.

Lucky Landing

Present since Season 3, Lucky Landing is one of the most underrated drop spots for players who prefer to land passive, with 14 chest locations and two vending machines as well as hoverboard and quadcrasher spawns.

The biggest building in Lucky Landing is the three-storied building to the South, but the building to the left also contains two chest spawns and plenty of floor loot.

Players may be unaware that one of the roof tiles in the building is a loot spawn so after opening the bottom floor chest, break the roof and build a ramp to see what lies above.

Lucky Landing Shrine

Located just outside of Lucky Landing, the shrine is also a fantastic place to loot with three potential chest spawns and plenty of ammo boxes – check it out before heading into Fatal Fields.

The three chest locations are all on top of each other and the shrine is pretty easy to navigate.

However, there are two floor loot locations that you wouldn’t think of checking – head to the north side of the shrine and break the two outside walls to see what you can find.

Pleasant Park/Retail Row

Pleasant Park and Retail Row are two of the original point of interests on the Fortnite map, surviving the various map changes over the seasons.

While both have had changes to their layout, they remain two of the most popular landing spots in the community as the same buildings can be found at both locations making looting much easier.

A common drop for players is the house with a kennel, named dog house by most. After looting the chest in the side roof – not many players realize there is a floor loot spawn on the opposite side above the garage; use your pickaxe to see what lies in wait.

Dusty Divot Shack

This spot isn’t located at one of the main POI’s but could come in handy if you’re in desperate need of some weaponry or healing items.

A small shack can be found just outside of Salty Springs next to the house near the road to Dusty Divot and has one of the most well-hidden floor loot spots on Fortnite.

After breaking into the shack, remove the floor and spam the interact button on the grass underneath and if you’re lucky you will find an item that could save you from elimination – we were able to find a clutch slurp juice!

Fatal Fields

Fatal Fields is one of the few locations that has been present on the map since Season 1 and is still a fantastic looting spot with 20 chests spawns and two vending machine locations.

Players should know about the chest spawn next to the main house which can be found by breaking the large metal silo.

However, unknown to many, the second silo is also a floor loot spawn and is always worth hitting as well to add to your loadout.

So, there you have it, five looting spots on Fortnite that you didn’t know about – bear in mind as these are floor loot spawns, you aren’t guaranteed to find an item there, but anything is possible.

Be sure to share these locations with your friends, or be greedy and keep them to yourself to guarantee you have the best loot possible!

Fortnite Season 5 is finally upon us, meaning there’s a fresh Battle Pass to progress through. From exclusive skins to weapon wraps, emotes, and everything in between, here’s a rundown on what’s up for grabs.

Hot off the heels of a Marvel-centric season, we’re now jumping into something entirely new with Season 5. After a record-breaking in-game battle with Galactus, there’s a lot to digest with the new state of Fortnite.

Star Wars is front and center this time around as The Mandalorian headlines the Battle Pass. Not only that, bug figures from all sorts of unique backgrounds have joined the mix.

From what you can unlock to how much it’ll run you, and plenty more, here’s our full overview of Fortnite’s Season 5 Battle Pass.

How much is the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass?

Drop into Season 5 with Mando thanks to the new Battle Pass.

No different from previous seasons, the Battle Pass has remained the same this time around. That means you’ve got two choices on how to progress through it. First of all, you can simply play the game for free and earn experience over the next few months. If this is the play for you, keep an eye out for guides on weekly challenges to boost your gains.

As another option, if you want to blitz right through the new Battle Pass, you can buy your way there instead. The base price will run you 950 V-Bucks, the equivalent of $10. However, you can also buy the first 25 tiers right out of the gate with a special 2,800 V-Buck bundle, roughly the equivalent of $25.

What’s included in the Season 5 Battle Pass?

Having leaked well ahead of time, we got an early idea of what’s on offer this time around. Front and center in the promotional material for this season is none other than Din Djarin and ‘The Child’ from The Mandalorian.

No different from how Aquaman headlined Season 3 and Marvel heroes and villains took over Season 4,  these Star Wars icons can be unlocked right at the beginning of the Season 5 Battle Pass.

You’ll be able to travel the map as the bounty hunter himself, while The Child accompanies close behind. Moreover, we already have an early look at six additional skins set to feature in the Battle Pass.

These are all completely unique designs. Some are simpler in their appearance, giving figures suits of armor. While others are completely wild, with powerful looking weapons and even anime-style visuals, a first for Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass tiers

There’s currently no telling what rewards will be featured in each and every tier. However, each of the new characters appear to have their own sets that fill out the Battle Pass. For instance, Mando has his own skin but also has a few other themed goodies to claim as well. All of the other characters follow suit.

As expected, Mando is the very first unlock in the Season 5 Battle Pass. With subsequent tiers providing Star Wars-themed extras including icons, loading screens, and more.

The Season 5 downtime is almost complete. We’ll be sure to update you with a look at every single Battle Pass reward as soon as we’re able to.
