In Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, players will have to rethink their ideal drop location as a few new mechanics were added to the game, along with two amazing POIs. Fans will now be able to ride animals all across the map, and Ballers have returned to the game, adding to mobility options this Season. We have landed at all of the different POIs and landmarks and have come up with a list of the best locations for players to drop at in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
Best places to Drop in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
There are 15 different POIs in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, and two of them are new additions. Most players will tend to land in these new areas, as well as iconic locations like Tilted Towers. Similarly, the new Reality Sapling mechanic allows players to acquire good loot from any location by planting Reality Seeds, and this changes the concept of an ideal drop location this Season.
Reality Falls is one of the best places to drop in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, however, it's always swarming with opponents. This area is perfect to drop for good loot and to collect Reality Seeds that can be planted around the map. You can ideally land on the inside branch of the tree where there are five chests full of loot. There are ascenders attached to one side of the tree which can be used to get down easily without taking any fall damage. The strategy at this POI should be getting weapons and shields quickly. If you don't find them from chests, then start harvesting any Reality Sapling you see nearby.
Rave Cave is a new POI and is where players are going to find Ballers in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Last season, this location was called Command Cavern, and you can expect numerous opponents to still drop at this area. The ideal strategy is to land on top of the huge Cuddle Team Leader helmet or the platform below to quickly get a weapon. We recommend players find a Baller and explore the POI once they are armed and shielded.
Greasy Grove was reshaped by numerous mushrooms destroying the buildings at this POI. While the Burger shop is where most players land, we recommend visiting houses towards the edge of the POI. Land at one of them and arm yourself with weapons and shields before heading towards combat. Greasy Grove is surrounded on all sides by Foraged Items that can be consumed to increase health and shields. Players can essentially engage in combat at this POI anytime, and if it doesn't go their way, they can escape easily by finding effective cover.
Tilted Towers is the most popular location in Fortnite battle royale and it's definitely one of the best places to land if you want to farm eliminations early on. We recommend players land on top of the biggest building at this POI to easily get weapons and consumables. If you want to avoid the early fight, then it's best to land on the smaller buildings and collect loot while rotating around. Surviving at Tilted Towers takes a lot more than just finding good loot. You will have to be alert at all times and be ready to fight or flee depending on the situation.
Safest places to land in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Landing at any of the named POIs in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 will be difficult, as players will find opponents dropping at the same location for easy eliminations and good loot. If your strategy is to play the edges of the circle up until the last zone, then it's ideal to land at unnamed landmarks and collect loot while rotating towards the circle.
You can land at various unnamed landmarks like Shrouded Settlement, Displaced Depot, Lil' Shaftie, Sandblast Estates, and other areas which are located on the map's edges. If you are looking for a safe drop with no opponents, then land far away and make your way towards the zone. You can loot along the way, and can also use vehicles, wolves, and boars to rotate quickly.
Best landing place for resources in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
The best landing spot to collect resources and gain shields quickly in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is Rave Cave. This POI has two Slurp Trucks at the opposite entrances on the northern and southern sides. You can easily land on one of these Slurp Trucks to gain 100 shields instantly by destroying it. At the same time, Rave Cave has countless Slurp Barrels that players can break to gain shields. This area also has tons of healing items which makes it undoubtedly the best landing spot for resources this season.
Best spots for weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Acquiring weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has become an easy task with the new Reality Sapling mechanic. Players can effectively harvest high-tier weapons by planting Reality Seeds at remote locations. However, you will have to collect the Reality Seed in the previous match to acquire weapons with this method. Nevertheless, players will also find good weapons at popular POIs and landmarks. The only risk is that countless opponents will be dropping at these spots too. Besides the aforementioned locations, the best spots to land for weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 are POIs like Rave Cave, Daily Bugle, Sanctuary, Reality Falls, Tilted Towers, Chonker's Speedway, and Synapse Station.
