Fortnite’s best landing spots in Chapter 3 Season 3
New map means a new set of Fortnite landing point at Chapter 3 Part 3, or at least some new considerations for your old favorites. Reality Tree is more than just adding a handy new way to start a match with premium gear. It transformed almost a third of the map, changing which areas are worth checking out first and where you can expect other players to arrive – or not, which is often more important. Below, we’ve listed a range of stocking spots suitable for any occasion, whether you’re after a weapon or just need a quiet spot to fish.
As in Chapter 3, Part 2, Chonker’s Speedway remains one of the best landing spots in the new season – albeit with an important caveat. The track and surrounding buildings are home to a lot of loot. It’s pretty common for the most part, with a few exceptions, but it’s easy to fill your bags quickly with the fact that the entire arsenal is full, unlike some locations further down the map. Reaching fast cars makes it easy to stay away from your opponents or just cover the ground faster.

The downside is that Chonker’s Speed seems to be more common than usual in Season 3, which means you’re more likely to get into trouble early on. Nearby garages and restaurants give you plenty of areas to hide, but it’s still one of the more dangerous places to drop in. If you don’t want to take the risk, consider dropping just north of the main highway and gradually working your way south in search of loot. This way you also have the advantage of high ground and can easily defeat a hasty retreat towards Condo Canyon or Sanctuary if things start to go awry.
With Chapter 3, Season 3 going well, Reality Falls seems to be losing its grip on Fortnite players. You can and should still get Reality Seeds to plan ahead for future matches, but it seems most players are now looking elsewhere. That’s a good thing, as Reality Falls itself is pretty much an ecosystem, with dozens of locations to search for loot, plan an ambush, or just slow down while the first 50 players take down. together.
Has the Reality Tree itself and the cave system behind it, along with loads of shield mushrooms that gradually increase your shield meter as you throw on them. Check the surrounding mushroom forest for chests while you’re there, as you can usually find two or three near the stalk or on the top of the hat.
Cave of Rave
Cave Rave has almost 60 loot compartments and chests to find, so if you just want the most drop-off location possible, this should be your first stop. More loot means you’re more likely to encounter other players, but between the Ballers and the cave’s own natural hideout, you’ll be able to stay safe or evacuate with ease. . The flip side is that all this loot makes Rave Cave a good spot to plan an ambush for other like-minded players. If you manage to get a shotgun or sniper rifle, camp – safely – on some ledges and see what you can manage to accomplish before someone finds out you’re there.
South of Sanctuary
The wilds around Sanctuary are pretty bare, save for a few random loot storage, but if you want to do some exploring, complete basic quests, or just go fishing, this is a great place to start. You’re close enough to the three islands east of Sanctuary for some high-level loot, but far enough away from where the original action usually takes place. If the first storm circle is further from Sanctuary, then you can bet that no one else will bother you for a while.
East of Daily Bugle
Another good area is the intersection between the Daily Bugle and the coast. The location is usually pretty quiet, but it also gives you access to some NPCs nearbys and Temple, if you need to reserve. The road winds through a shallow valley, making it easy to avoid opponents or set up ambushes. The Daily Bugle itself, with its abundant loot, is still a popular drop, so give this one a try if you want to pick up a few treasure hunters.
South side of leaning tower
South of Tilted Towers might seem like an unorthodox pick, but it does have some advantages. However, there’s absolutely nothing there – no NPCs, no landmarks, nothing at all. While others are running to loot the Tower or explore Reality Falls, you can safely explore the hills and plains. Since this area is almost in the center of the map, it also means that you can easily move into more civilized areas to pack up when needed.
Wherever your Reality Sapling is
This may go without saying, but wherever your Reality Sapling is, you should do the same, regardless of whether it’s ready to harvest or not. Even if you’re waiting for epic or legendary loot, you still need to make sure the saplings are free of weeds – and don’t fall victim to other players’ whims of vandalism.
Ideally, you’ll plant your sapling somewhere far away, such as some of the more remote locations we’ve suggested, or maybe even somewhere more remote, like the northwest of the city. Logjam Lumberyard. Either way, once you harvest your young fruit, you’re in most cases much better equipped than if you dropped it somewhere like the Rave Cave. If you don’t want to wait for weapon fruits to sprout naturally, you can use a shield or water barrel to make them grow faster.
