How Hot Locations work
Next, Hot Locations appear 60% more often in games of Marvel Snap. However, they’re only in focus for 24 hours. This gives players a shorter window in which to craft a new deck and take advantage of the more consistently prominent Location.
Hot Locations go live at 7PM PT every Saturday. If you keep your eyes peeled, you can be one of the earliest to adapt around this Location and climb the ranks with great speed for a limited time while others are still adjusting.
Which Location is Featured or Hot today in Marvel Snap?
The current Featured Location in Marvel Snap is Krakoa, a new location added as part of the Days of Future Past season. This will be in the spotlight until 7PM PT on March 29, 2023.
On turn 5, players lose control and the location plays their cards for them, much like any deck containing Agatha Harkness.
This element of randomness can make it difficult to play around, but one option that many players have tried is to simply negate that randomness by playing location-altering cards (Scarlet Witch, Storm, Rhino) so they don’t have to worry about this.
Another option would be to play a Sandman deck so that Krakoa can’t mess up your strategy too much and only play one card.
