Even though Fortnite Chapter 2’s third season is on the horizon, Thursday May 14 has brought another week of Location Domination Challenges for fans to sink their teeth into. 

Despite the recently announced delay to Fortnite Season 3, fans of Epic Games’ battle royale are eagerly anticipating the game’s next season. Originally thought to be launching at the end of April, Epic have since confirmed it has been pushed back to June 4.

However, with Season 2 carrying on, another set of Location Domination challenges will be released on May 14. The challenges, as has become normal practice, were leaked ahead of time by prominent Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey.

The second set of Location Domination Challenges are set to go live at 7am PST/10am EST/3pm BST on Thursday, May 14. 

They’re very similar to the first set, in terms of the nature of the challenges and the amount of XP gained. If players complete all of the challenges, they will be rewarded with an incredible 900,000 XP. The full list of challenges are detailed below.

  • Eliminate 3/5/10 players or Henchmen at The Rig
  • Search  7/10/18 ammo boxes at Sweaty Sands
  • Eliminate 3/5/10 players or Henchmen at The Shark
  • Search 7/10/18 chests at Craggy Cliffs
  • Place Top 10 1/3/7 times after landing at Frenzy Farm
  • Collect 500/1500/300 Wood at Weeping Woods
  • Destroy 1/3/7 Teddy Bears at Holly Hedges
  • Apply 100/250/500 Shields or Healing at Shanty Town or The Orchard
  • Deal 300/900/2500 damage to players at Salty Springs
  • Catch 1/3/7 weapons at Misty Meadows

As with the first set, all the challenges are tiered, with higher XP rewards for the higher tiers completed. For example, players will only be rewarded for 10,000 XP for eliminating three players/henchmen at The Rig, but this flies up to 55,000 XP if you complete the final tier and eliminate 10.

A full XP breakdown of each challenge and its tiers came courtesy of the aforementioned iFireMonkey.

It really is that simple to get all the XP and complete the challenges. While the challenges are fairly easy, completing all of them will require a significant amount of time to be invested.

However, such an investment will reap significant rewards, as 900,000 XP will be enough to seriously rank up your battle pass before Season 3 drops.

Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
