Fortnite: Best Landing Spots in Chapter 4 Season 2
Despite numerous delays, Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 finally arrived on our screens on March 10, which we guess still counts as early March. But, with so many new POIs expected this season, it’s no surprise so many of us couldn’t endure the wait; thankfully, we no longer have to. At last, we can indulge in the flurry of new landing spots. This is arguably the best and most intriguing map change since the map was obliterated by that meteor. Jokes aside, Chapter 4 Season 2 has brought a lot of options for the new locations to start your match. However, if you want to give yourself and your team the best chance of success, these are the best landing spots that we recommend.
5. Kenjutsu Crossing
Kenjatsu Crossing is one of the new POIs that came in Chapter 4 Season 2. Right in style with the season, this small location on the southeast edge of the map is a hidden gem. Though not particularly large, it is rich in resources and weapons, as well as cherry blossoms if you want to start your match with a vibrant aesthetic.
At most, you can expect one or two other teams to be dropping at this location with your squad (Unless it’s a hot drop, then you may want to reconsider). That being said, you might get lucky and get the spot all to yourself. Either way, if another team is lurking around, Kenjatsu Crossing is very open, with many lines of sight. Furthermore, the main palace, which is a bit of a hotbed, can give you the advantage of the high ground. As a result, Kenjatsu Crossing is one of the best landing spots in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 if you’re looking to gear up and warm up the sticks.
4. Frenzy Fields
Frenzy Fields was one of our top picks for the best landing spots in Fortnite Chapter 4. But, that’s because we knew this location was here to stay. A big reason for that is it may very well be considered the clone of Frenzy Farms, an old but notable location from the second chapter of Fortnite that made a long stint before it finally got replaced. Regardless, if you’re looking for a nostalgic landing spot, Frenzy Fields will deliver. Just don’t expect to be roaming its fields with ease.
Depending on the battle bus direction, Frenzy Fields can be one of the most chaotic spots on the map. But that’s because it’s well worth fighting for. The area is overflowing with floor loot, materials, and dirt bikes. On that note, there’s no shame in landing here, grabbing some quick gear, and escaping on the dirt bikes. We actually recommend it if things are too hectic. Regardless, make a quick appearance or fight to claim it; Frenzy Fields will not disappoint squads that land here and can frequently set up your entire squad for the end game.
3. Steamy Springs
This may look like Kenjustu Crossing, however, that’s due to the fact it’s just across the bridge from that location. Nonetheless, If you’re looking for a slower-paced landing spot on the map’s south side, this is your best bet. Steamy Springs has only a few Japanese-style houses to loot, which should be enough for one squad. As a result, not many teams will plan to land here. So, why should you?
The key reason is that Steamy Spring is sandwiched between Frenzy Fields and Mega City, two of the best and biggest spots on the map’s southern half. As a result, a solid play is to get enough gear here to cover your basics before rotating on a squad in one of the larger locations that may not be expecting it. If you do this quickly enough out of the gate, you’ll likely catch them off guard while they’re still weak and recovering from the opening engagements.
2. Slappy Shores
Slappy Shores isn’t one of the new locations in Chapter 4 Season 2, and it wasn’t even on many players’ radars early in Season 1. However, as the season progressed, Slappy Shores quickly cemented itself as one of the best landing spots on the east side of the map. There are two primary reasons for this: It’s rich with metal and is a slurp factory, which can easily grant your entire team with full shield in no time.
The downfall is that Slappy Shores isn’t much of a sleeper pick anymore. Most players are aware of its greatness, and if the battle bus is heading over or near it, expect to fight for your right to the slurp and metal. On the other hand, if the battle bus is not heading anywhere near this location, it’s well worth the trek over. Because competition will most likely be low and loot will be abundant.
1. Mega City
Of course, Mega City is the highlight of Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. As a result, it’s our top pick for the best landing spots in Season 2. You may be thinking, “Isn’t this just Tilted Towers all over again?”. Well, you would be correct, but it’s delivering with so much more flair. This neon city has over 100 chests and, best of all, grind rails that zip you between the skyscrapers. Furthermore, the holograms are a snazzy addition.
Nonetheless, As cool and attractive as Mega City is, you’ll rarely land here without quickly encountering some action. However, this makes it ideal for gamers looking for just that. We recommend exploring this city in free-play mode to learn its routes. As there are a ton of creative and sneaky ways to quickly engage and disengage in the city’s urban warfare. So, do yourself a favor and land at one of the most intriguing locations added to Fortnite in a long time.
