Top 5 places to land in Fortnite Season 3

Here’s where you should land in Fortnite Season 3 if you’re looking for a win.

Published

on

Fortnite Season 3 is almost two weeks old, so most players have been able to work their way around the new locations on the map. We have some brand-new POIs along with several returning ones, meaning it’s time to analyze some of the best places to land.

For this review, we took a look at popularity, loot, location, and, finally, statistics from Novos. We didn’t rely on these statistics to completely inform our list, but it’s hard to deny that certain places offer players a better chance of winning their game.

We left two of the new POIs off of this map for different reasons. The Authority is the new Agency, which means it’s likely going to be the hottest place to land for the bulk of Season 3. Since this is the case, there’s always going to be a risk while landing here. You’ll get some good loot, but almost every game will involve a 50/50.

We left Fortilla off of the list because of its location and size. Finding Ocean and her Chug Jug can be a chore, along with looting the whole place and securing the vault. Once you’ve done that, you usually have to trek a long way to the next circle and spend almost all of your mid-game on the move. Both of these places are strong landing spots, but they aren’t in the top five – at least in terms of statistics, locations, and chances of surviving. Catty Corner is a different story, as you’ll see. Let’s get into the list.

5. Frenzy Farm

Our old friend, Frenzy Farm, remains one of the best places to land in the Fortnite Season 3 map. Apart from the water level and built-in Crash Pads, there’s very little that’s new about this POI. That’s one of the reasons that it’s the best spot to land – not as many people will contest you.

Frenzy used to be one of the hottest places on the map back in Chapter 2 Season 1. Since then, most of the attention has gone elsewhere, leaving the 19 chests that spawn here, nearly free. Frenzy is also located near the center of the map, making it a consistently short journey to the next circle.

4. The Yacht

We’re departing from the statistics, for a minute, to talk about one of the largest and most overlooked landing spot on the Season 3 map: The Yacht. The Yacht was one of the few POIs to get a chest upgrade in Season 3. The vault emptied out, but you can still find a chest and Supply Drop inside, guaranteeing you a Launch Pad.

The location is now larger, which means there’s more of a chance to loot-up before you have to fight. The zone is almost always far away, but there are plenty of Motorboats on the new Yacht, along with a Whirlpool to the West.

The overall placements from teams who land at The Yacht might not be the highest, but that could change in the future. We think that the rotation and amount of loot make it worthy of a top-five spot.

3. Sweaty Sands

Sweaty Sands is another location, like Frenzy Farm, that consistently proves itself to be among the best places to land – regardless of the size of the team or which mode you’re playing. There’s a whopping 36 chests in and around the area, and the lack of Season 3 changes has made it one of the lesser-contested landing spots in public matches.

What’s more, you usually don’t have to worry about other teams rotating to you once you clear the area. The Shark is underwater, for now, which means you can take your time and loot the whole area without worrying about a third-party engagement.

2. Catty Corner

Statistics are a fantastic way to analyze the best Fortnite landing spots, but they don’t tell the whole story. Catty Corner might be one of the most dangerous places to land on the Season 3 map, but it’s also home to some of the best loot in the game.

Surviving Catty Corner means leaving with the Impulse Launcher, Kit’s Charge Shotgun, vault loot, and any SMG you want. The problem is that this is a large POI with plenty of surrounding places to land. Winning a fight at Catty could mean that you’re safe for all of two minutes before another team rotates onto you.

Still, if you’re looking for some of the strongest loot in Fortnite Season 3, then Catty is your place. Land here if you want a fight, God-tier loot, and are confident in your skills.

1. Rickety Rig

The Rig was one of the casualties of the massive flood that hit the Season 3 map, but it didn’t go all the way under. In fact, this area is home to, arguably, the best landing spot on the map. There are several islands with plenty of loot, easy rotation in the form of boats and Whirlpools, and Slurp Barrels.

The reason that we put Rickety Rig at number 1 is because of the statistics. It’s consistently one of the top places to land by average placements – in both Arena and Pubs along with all team sizes. Winning this location also gives you a guaranteed Launch Pad in the opened vault – one of the only places to find such a treasure outside of the Mythic POIs. After that, you can wait for the Fortilla team to roll out for a chance at Ocean’s Chug Jug and Burst AR.

So, there you have it: the best named POIs in Fortnite Season 3. There are some better solo spots – to be sure – such as the boat that spawns randomly around the map. Most players know about this boat, now, and at least two or three opponents will land there in Arena matches.

We’ll have to see how the statistics change as the season continues but, for now, these are some of the best places to go if you’re looking to win.

How to get the Dish Destroyer pickaxe in Fortnite Season 3

Another exclusive pickaxe arrives to Fortnite in Season 3 and it sure looks quite different. Here’s how you can get it.

Dish Destroyer Pickaxe in Fortnite

The Dish Destroyer pickaxe is another free cosmetic you can get in Chapter 3 Season 3 if you haven’t already. Here’s how to get the pickaxe right into your locker.

Fortnite players sure love freebies that the developers give them away each season. From a free Refer-A-Friend skin to a slurpy back bling that you can get upon completing quests, players have faithfully completed every task that Epic has asked them to claim the free reward.

However, over the course of several seasons now, getting these freebies is starting to feel too much work to some players. Epic continues to add away free content, but players are asked to put in the work in order to claim these rewards.

This time around, there’s a new item on the block, The Dish Destroyer Pickaxe, which you can get in Fortnite now by doing a few simple steps. Here’s how you can get it in Season 3.

Get the Dish Destroyer Pickaxe in Fortnite now

Nvidia’s cloud gaming platform GeForce Now was launched earlier this year when players were able to stream Fortnite on any device if they were a member of the service. This also allowed iOS users to stream the game on their phones despite the Apple vs. Epic lawsuit.

In a recent tweet, Nvidia announced that Fortnite players will be able to redeem a free Dish Destroyer Pickaxe if they stream Fortnite on their GeForce Now enabled devices until August 4, 2022. Players who are members of the exclusive service will only be able to redeem this for free in-game.

However, in another announcement, Epic told its player base that the pickaxe is not exclusive to GeForce Now but will also be available in the Item Shop at a later date. This means that those who aren’t able to redeem the free pickaxe using their GeForce Now memberships will have a chance to buy it using V-Bucks in the Item Shop.

The cost of the pickaxe has not been revealed as of yet as players believe that it will be released once the limited window of August 4 for GeForce Now members have expired. As soon as we get any news on its Item Shop release, we’ll be sure to update this article.


GeForce Now players have had the perks of free rewards ever since the service allowed players to experience the thrill of Fortnite anywhere on their devices. Falling in line is XCloud’s gaming service which has become extremely popular amongst Xbox players.

Fortnite players call on Epic Games to fix Loot Chests bug in Season 3

As the latest Fortnite Season 3 update brought players a No Sweat Summer, it left a weird bug in the game where players are getting empty loot chests. Here’s the latest on that.

Loot Chests in Fortnite

Fortnite players have finally given up on the game due to its never-ending glitches and bugs that affect their overall gameplay experience. The latest glitch in the game is teleporting chest loot to a different location, and it’s getting pretty annoying for players.

Player feedback is one of the many things Epic takes very seriously that it aims to fix in every major weekly update or minor hotfixes from time to time. Often there are times when these bugs can get pretty annoying as they affect the overall gameplay experience for the player.

Fortnite players have seen bugs ranging from being stuck under the map or taking fall damage after jumping off a launch pad. From pros to content creators, each one of them took to social media to call on the developers to “fix the game”.

However, a recent update, v21.30, left a bug that has tested the patience of every Fortnite player active this season – potentially the most annoying Fortnite bug of all time. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Fortnite bug teleports chests loots to other locations

A strange Fortnite bug that is going viral right now on social media is the Loot Chests bug. It all began when Epic added the update v21.30 and introduced players to this year’s summer event, No Sweat Summer.

The update also saw the addition of Prime Shotgun which is considered to be the best shotgun in Chapter 3. While all the additions are fascinating and exciting to the players, the bug the update left in the game is still haunting players who are failing to win a game like they used to.

The bug, as shown in the clip above, teleports the chest loot to a nearby location outside if a player opens a chest box inside a building. This is pretty annoying as it doesn’t let the player farm loot fast as they usually would while landing on a hot drop.

Players have already started uploading their clips of the loot chest bug and are calling out the game to come out and fix this issue. This bug also creates double the work for those players who like to play a fast-paced Battle Royale match.

Joining in the conversation are a few FNCS players who feel that this bug might cost them several games where they would end up losing on a major competitive level. The entire community has joined hands together to ask the developers to fix the game at the earliest.

While Fortnite has not addressed this issue on their social media handles or on the Trello board could also mean that players in higher ping regions might be the only ones experiencing the bug. However, the player base is still keeping their hopes high to get these issues fixed as soon as possible.


As bugs and glitches continue to add to several issues Fortnite is filled with, events like No Sweat Summer keep the community excited for more in-game content and freebies that they can get. The challenges for No Sweat Summer are live in-game now and players can redeem their share of rewards upon completing them.

Fortnite introduces the new Prime Shotgun in update v21.30

Prime Shotgun is the latest game breaking weapon that has been added to Fortnite in v21.30. Here’s all about the new shotgun.

Prime Shotgun in Fortnite

Prime Shotgun is another addition to Fortnite this season in terms of weaponry that has been added to the game. Here is all about the latest shotgun that was introduced in v21.30 and what players think of it.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has been a joyride for both OG and new players alike. The new mechanics, the reality bloom spreading everywhere, and the addition of new weapons to the game have kept the community satisfied so far.

However, during the beginning of Chapter 3, the shotgun meta was deemed to be the worst shotguns the game had added to the game. The Striker Pump, Ranger, and Auto Shotguns were weapons that players had deemed incompetent to other shotguns in Fortnite.

Much so, even the newly released Two Shot Shotgun couldn’t impress the players with its faster fire rate and damage. So, Epic decided to throw a new shotgun into the mix to seek player reactions and improve the messed-up shotguns in-game.

Prime Shotgun is the new community favorite shotgun in Fortnite

Prime Shotgun was added in the latest update v21.30 to the unvaulted weapons arsenal in Fortnite. The shotguns were the second one introduced to the player base apart from the Two-Shot shotgun.

It holds 4 bullets in a clip and promises heavy damage on the first shot fired from a fully loaded clip. The 3 shots that follow inflict lower damage than that of the first one.

When a player reloads the shotgun, 3 blue dots appear on the gun with the red dot being the first shot being loaded. This brings back the memories of the infamous “One Shot Meta” from the OG days when the community used to perform using a Pump Shotgun.

Pros like NickEh30 sang high praise of the Prime Shotgun as the weapon contains elements of the OG pump in terms of range, accuracy, and firepower. Other pros like SypherPK & Ninja also commented their thoughts on the gun which were highly positive.
