Fortnite Chapter 2 entered its third season in June 2020. Now, Fortnite’s map has been flooded! The western half of the game’s map has a very different look and feel, as many of Season 2’s locations have been drowned out by the sea. The third season has introduced a variety of new landmark locations where players can stock up gear at. These are the best new landmarks in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 to crack open chests at.
1. Bandit Barge
Bandit Barge is one of the most prominent new floating landmarks that’s on the flooded western half of the map at grid reference C6. This is a pirate ship that includes six chests. The Barge also includes plenty of floor loot, numerous Slurp barrels to max your shield with, fishing rods, and a boat to ride on.
Pawntoon is a new secret boat Landmark for Season 3 that isn’t shown on the map! This small boat is located at different spots around the perimeter of the map for every match. Although its position on the map is never the same, the boat is always very close to the edge of the map. So, look out for the small boat shown in the shot directly below along the map’s perimeter from Fortnite’s Battle Bus, and then jump for it at the beginning of matches.
I’ve counted five regular chests on this small boat. However, there’s also a blue loot crate on the boat that effectively counts as another chest. In addition, Pawntoon includes a Henchman Chest that always contains Rare loot or better.
3. Boogie Boat
Boogie Boat, at map grid reference B7, is the place to go for a party! This is a relatively small boat with a dance floor that pumps out some pulsating DJ music. It includes five regular chests for players to open. There are also a couple of motor boats at this landmark, which players can ride on to quickly reach the safe zone if required.
4. Weeping Woods
Weeping Woods was formerly a named location in the second season that has become a new landmark (or POI) in Season 3. However, this is not the bushy forest of trees we remember from Season 2. The new Weeping Woods is, in fact, a garbage site! The only thing you’ll recognize from the old forest is a high wooden tower, which includes a few chests at the top of it.
Weeping Woods is now one of the biggest landmark locations on Fortnite’s map. It is primarily within the map grid references C5 and C6, just east of Holly Hedges. There are loads of chests scattered across the two islands of Weeping Woods. Aside from that, there are Slurp barrels, boats, upgrade machines, and fishing rods at WW.
5. Float Fillet
Float Fillet is a floating fast food joint that puts McDonald’s to shame! This landmark is located at the southeast corner of grid reference D3, and there are four chests you can open there.
Risky Reels, or what’s left of it, is just a quick swim away to the east of Float Fillet. There you can open an additional two chests.
6. The Yacht
The Yacht was another named location on the Season 2 map that has become a new landmark. However, it’s surprising The Yacht is a new landmark, as it’s actually a bit bigger than it was in Season 2. The new, remodelled Yacht now has smaller areas attached to it. Its location on the map has also changed to grid reference E1.
The new Yacht is now the biggest landmark on Fortnite’s Season 3 map in terms of treasure chest count: 20 chests total. The Yacht also includes tons of floor loot, ammo boxes, Slurp barrels, boats, and a helicopter. So, this is a great location to pick up some gear at in the third season.
Those new landmarks in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 are chock-a-block with chests and floor loot. They’re the best landmark alternatives to the named locations on the Season 3 map to amass gear at.
