One of the first challenges of any Fortnite game is choosing where in the map to land.
This can vary each game depending on the direction of the Battle Bus as well as where the rest of your squad is going.
Choosing the right starting location can be important if you want to get the best loot to kick-start your game.
There is such a wide range of locations on Fortnite that it can be difficult to choose the right one and it’s often a balance of risk versus reward.
Here are some locations that might be a good place to head if you’re looking to start the game strongly.
Where should I land in Fortnite?
One of the most popular destinations is Tilted Towers, which was added to the game during the map update at the start of February.
Players often swarm there as it has a large amount of loot and chests, but it can also be a dangerous place to go as it full of tight spaces and is swarming with other players.
If you can pick up a weapon quickly and take down one or two enemies then you could be on your way to a successful run.
However, if you find yourself beaten to weapon on top of a building then it’s already game over.
This part of the map often has fewer players landing there but it is full of chests and loot.
It can be a bit tricky to navigate because of the high walls that surround each building, but you can easily move between them by placing slopes to climb the walls.
This is a particularly good place to go if you are playing a squad game and can convince them to stick with you, there is more than enough supplies to equip all of you.
One of the problems can be if the first circle ends up being far away from Snobby Shores, as you are surrounded by mountains which can make fast movement away from Snobby Shores tricky.
This and Fatal Fields are very open parts of the map with very few buildings and their structures are quite spread apart.
There is a good number of hidden chests but this can be a pretty popular location depending on the direction of the Battle Bus.
If you find yourself joined by a large number of players then this could be a tricky part of the map to survive.
There are a few smaller houses surrounding the main part of Anarchy Acres that could provide safer options to land.
Not many players choose this as their main location, but you will always find a few people who choose it as their destination.
It can be a risky place to head to as moving in the lake makes you slow and an easy target if someone with a long-range weapon spots you.
However this somewhat of a hidden gem on the map as it is full of chests and loot all around the lake, and if nobody else is there then you can quickly set up a route that lets you get lots of useful items.
