We have an entirely new map to discover this chapter. Whether or not you’re an experienced player, you’ll want to know the top landing spots across the new map. In this guide we’ll cover the best landing spots in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1.
Best Landing Spots to Win in Chapter 5 Season 1
Determining the best of anything can be a bit subjective, especially when it comes to a game like Fortnite. Some players might be more aggressive and seek out the hottest drops, while others might like a slower play of survival. So, in this list, I’ll show you the best landing spot for every kind of player in Chapter 5 Season 1.
The Marigold Yacht
Offering the perfect balance of challenge and ease, the Marigold is a large yacht found docked directly northeast of Pleasant Park and south of Ritzy Riviera. However, the cruise ship doesn’t give you much of a vacation. The boat has a few gun-wielding henchmen for you to take out, and you’ll gain access to a locked vault in the bilge of the ship as your prize. Additionally, the Marigold is more often than not an isolated landing zone, so you won’t necessarily run into another team off the get-go.
Any Weapon Case Locations
The Train is one of the most exciting new POIs on the map, and for good reason. Not only does it take you all across the map, but it contains a rare treasure chest. You’ll need to interact with the chest and complete a heist to access the rare loot, but it’s worth it. It’ll take around 30 seconds for the heist timer to complete. In the meantime, there are loot cases found on the doorways between train cars. If it sounds too good to be true, that’s because it’s undoubtedly a hot drop. You’ll need to defend the capture point from other players, and in my experience, they’ll just keep coming. This drop is ideal for solo players.
Reckless Railway is one of my favorite main POIs. The location has a big boss that’ll drop a Shield Medallion, and the Train runs through the station, so you can catch a ride around the map if you stick around. Additionally, there are plenty of treasure chests, and a weapon case hidden underneath. Considering how stacked this location is, you can expect a gun-fight from numerous teams. So, if you’re a fan of a balanced action-packed departure from the Battle Bus, this is the location for you.
Lavish Lair is an impressive mansion that sits between snow-capped mountains. If it sounds like something out of a James Bond movie, you’re on the right track. The location is crawling with henchmen and a big boss to take out. Throughout the various floors of the sprawling manor, you’ll find plenty of loot to go around and plenty of enemies. Whether it’s a player or a henchman, you’re guaranteed a gunfight. I’d consider this the most challenging location on this list. So, this landing spot is perfect for the aggressive player.
That’s the best landing spots in Chapter 5 Season 1 of Fortnite.
