The Fortnite map has once again been shaken up with a mix of new and old locations to visit in Chapter 3 Season 4. If you want to find the best loot at the start of the game, knowing where to land is key so here are the best landing spots in Fortnite right now. 

Chapter 3 has brought a lot of exciting changes and additions to Fortnite so far. From the island being flipped upside down at the beginning of Season 1 to the release of the highly requested Dragon Ball Z crossover, and the introduction of the game’s new Paradise theme.

The majority of the landmarks and POIs across the island remain the same, but a mysterious Chrome substance has appeared at POIs like Herald’s Sanctum and Lustrous Lagoon. As it continues to spread across the Island, we can expect even more changes to this season’s map.

Understandably players will need to spend time figuring out which location is the best to land in with all of these changes. To help with this, we’ve put together a list of six of the best landing spots in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4.


Best landing spots in Fortnite Chapter 3

1. Rave Cave

The big new addition in the previous season was the Rave Cave, and it remains one of the best places to land in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4. The former Command Cavern hideout has been turned into the number one party destination with Ballers, music, and a huge rollercoaster to ride around.

It’s not just fun you’ll have here, though, as it’s also one of the most loot-heavy locations on the map with 65 Chests hidden around the Rave Cave. There are loads of high-up vantage points to snipe opponents from a distance, while those Ballers we mentioned are a great getaway vehicle. The sheer amount of loot available to find here easily makes it one of the best landing spots in Fortnite.

2. Lustrous Lagoon

The Daily Bugle was one of our favorite landing spots ever since it debuted at the start of Chapter 3. It’s now been rebranded as Lustrous Lagoon, but it’s still an excellent place to begin a match with loads of places to hide and explore for loot before unlocking the vault on the floating pirate ship.

One of the best things about Lustrous Lagoon is that you’ll get to try out most of the big new Fortnite features without the chaos of Herald’s Sanctum. That means Chrome Chests, Chrome Splashes, the new EvoChrome Weapons, and even the D-Launchers to get to high ground.

3. Chonker’s Speedway

One of the coolest POIs on the Fortnite Chapter 3 map is Chonker’s Speedway, which is essentially a giant racing track surrounded by buildings ripe for looting. There are 43 regular Chests in the immediate vicinity and a Seven Outpost containing a Vault located just down the road.

This is also a great place to land if you’re looking to have fun, as a set of sports cars with off-road tires will spawn here at the start of every match. This makes the landing spot one of the best for traversing Fortnite’s difficult terrains – or simply racing around the dirt track with your mates (and running over your opponents, obviously).

4. Sleepy Sound

Residential locations like Pleasant Park and Lazy Lake were some of the most popular locations throughout Fortnite Chapter 2, but with the new map scrapping them all, players will want to head to Sleepy Sound, a waterside town filled with rows of houses to loot in quick succession.

It’s also one of the most unique locations on the Chapter 3 map, as you’ll get the best of both worlds when it comes to transport: Loads of vehicles and a gas station for land travel, and plenty of boats and open waters for a quick ocean getaway when you need it most.

5. Shifty Shafts

Shifty Shafts has finally returned to the Fortnite map! This Chapter 1 fan-favorite may not be the most loot-heavy POI to land at, but it’s the perfect location for those who prefer to play stealthily and wrack up XP from eliminations in the busy early game thanks to its sprawling, maze-like underground tunnels.

It’s also a great location to farm all three materials for building, there are plenty of animal spawns nearby if you need them for a challenge, and there are just enough Chests hidden around the mines to give you a solid start in any match. We’d recommend this landing spot for experienced players only.

6. Pawntoon (Loot Boat)

One of the most exciting Fortnite landmarks to return in Chapter 3 is the Pawntoon, otherwise known as the ‘Loot Boat’. This elusive boat, which looks like a small pirate ship, contains Supply Chests with loads of high-tier weapons and healing items, making it a great (and quiet) place to start a match. It’s one of the best landing spots to find rare weapons in Fortnite.

The catch? It’s always on the move, so the chances of finding it are very slim. The only real advice we can give is that the loot boat never appears on lakes or rivers inside the Island, so your best option is to land near the coastline and hope that you spot it in the distance.

That’s everything you need to know about the best landing spots in Fortnite chapter 3 season 4!
