As with any major Fortnite update, Chapter 3 Season 4 brought some significant changes to the popular battle royale map. Plenty of POIs have been completely overhauled now that Chrome has made its presence felt – and things are looking pretty great these days. With so many fresh landing spots, you might be wondering which location you want to start your games. We’ve got you covered here with some of the best places to go in Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 4.
The best places to land in Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 4
Condo Canyon has been completely redesigned to Cloudy Condos due to the arrival of Chrome. This popular POI is completely raised in the sky and has many vertical ziplines that help you get up and down from the various bridges that connect all the buildings. Due to such a drastic change this season, it’s a hot spot that enjoys a lot of action, so if you want to get into fights early, this is a good option for you. It also helps that there’s plenty of loot for everyone.
Cloudy Condos is also a great place to land because of the high security vault right outside the POI to the north. If you survive and do some exploring, there’s a decent chance you and your squad will come out of the area with two keys you can use to open this vault, which you’ll see on a platform raised on a balloon northeast of the gas stations.
While the Shimmering Shrine was home to an exciting Indiana Jones puzzle last season, Chrome has overtaken it at this stage. Still, it’s a good choice for those looking for an interesting location for fights, mostly thanks to its multi-layered design that can provide cover and fun opportunities for flanking attacks. It’s also home to great loot due to the inclusion of chrome chests, which can produce much more valuable items than traditional chests.
North and east of the Shimmering Shrine are Herald’s Sanctum and Rocky Reels, respectively, both of which make for good POI rotations. These two places are extremely popular and active, so you won’t be short of entertainment no matter which one you visit next. However, when possible, you may want to choose Herald’s Sanctum, and we’ll explain why below.
As mentioned above, the Herald’s Sanctum is located north of the Shimmering Shrine and replaced last season’s Sanctuary POI. This is a large site that has been completely taken over by Chrome, and has a serious focus on verticality and multi-level navigation that makes for some interesting skirmishes with other squads, especially if you can find a platform more for scouting and sniping. Like the Shimmering Shrine, it’s also home to a lot of chrome chests that will help you equip yourself with better gear early on.
Not only is the Herald’s Sanctum a great time for those looking for a fight right out of the gate, but it’s also where you’ll find the Herald herself. She replaces Darth Vader as this season’s big boss fight and can do a real number on an unprepared team. However, if you’re victorious, she drops a mythic herald burst rifle as a reward. Sweet!
The Reality Tree was introduced last season as a beautiful and magical POI, but this season it has become a much less visually appealing location. However, just because a tree has lost its living leaves doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a worse place to land – and it can actually mean a better one. While last season’s intense foliage made things a bit of a mess on the tree, this season’s lack allows for much better visible lines.
Moreover, there is a lot of loot in the areas around the Reality Tree, including the house to the east and the forest to the west, making this POI a lot of fun for some outdoor shooting. It’s also a good place to rotate, with easily accessible roads leading in all three important directions. Of course, the place you’re likely to head to is Tilted Towers, and it’s also probably the most popular place in the game.
There are no places on the Fortnite map that are as famous or active as Tilted Towers. This POI is barely west of the center of the map, which helps you rotate almost anywhere the ring pushes you. And with so many buildings available to loot, you’re almost certain to come out well-equipped – assuming you go out at all. This is easily the most active spot on the map, both when landing and during rotations later in the game, so be prepared for a lot of shooting. Take the height with long to mid-range weapons when possible, and don’t be afraid to know when to fold them – there are plenty of cars around to escape.
It’s worth noting that Tilted Towards also features a high-security vault. If you and your squad manage to round up two keys – which shouldn’t be too much of a problem with so much to loot – you’ll have access to a significant amount of ammo, healing items and high-level cannons.
