Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 launched on June 17, plunging much of the map under water and changing up how the game looks, plays and feels. But did you know there’s a secret loot boat that provides all manner of weapons, materials and supplies?

Season 3 has definitely been a huge change for Fortnite players, who had stuck through Season 2 as one of the longest seasons in the game’s history.

Now, the map has adopted an aquatic theme, with only the south-east side of the map remaining mostly flood-free.

The new Fortnite map plunges players into the sea.

With so much water now occupying the map, it’s no shock that some changes have been made to abide to the new flood theme, including a violent shark that literally eats players.

That’s not all, though: apparently, there is a secret loot boat that can literally set you up for the entire game with some of the best weapons, heals and materials. So how do you find it?

According to popular YouTuber Ali-A, finding the boat in Fortnite isn’t too difficult, but has handily set out a guide to finding the loot boat and using it to your advantage.

How to find the secret loot boat in Fortnite

As Ali-A says, the boat spawns in randomly, meaning you can’t just drop in the same spot every time and hope to find it: you’ve got to keep your eyes peeled as soon as you enter the battle bus.

Here’s what you have to do:

  1. Start searching around the outer perimeter of the map as soon as you enter the battle bus.
  2. Look for a boat or something that doesn’t look like it’s always there.
  3. Keep an eye on your surroundings as you approach – if anyone else lands at the boat, your game might be over before it’s even started.
  4. Check the entire boat for chests and supply drops – there’s loads!
  5. Cut down the boat in its entirety for a boatload of materials.
  6. Make sure you use the speedboat attached to the back of the loot boat to make a quick getaway and avoid the storm!

That’s all you have to do! It’s super easy, but you’re likely going to face a lot of competition trying to land here, so be prepared for some frustrating gunfights.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
