Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 map

As Chapter 5 Season 5 begins, with a completely new Fortnite map, here are the named locations, alongside their loot potential for each POI.

What does the Fortnite map look like? It’s time for yet another new island as we speed into Chapter 5 Season 1, meaning that we’ve got an entirely fresh set of locations to memorize. Luckily, there aren’t all that many named places to learn at first and the themes seem to be relatively similar to what we’ve seen before.

As the battle royale game is constantly in flux, everything in this guide probably will change throughout the season. This goes also for the many Fortnite weapons, which have now completely changed and now include attachments. So, pull up a chair as we go through the changes to come to the Fortnite map in Chapter 5 Season 1.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 map

With a brand new map to explore, here are all the POIs and whether or not they’re any good for loot:

  • Classy Courts – not quite as good for mythic items, but a good amount of loot.
  • Fencing Fields – by far the best spot on the map for a good quantity of loot, and you also may get a chance to walk away with a mythic item.
  • Grand Glacier – home to a pretty hotel with a good amount of loot, and some stunning views.
  • Hazy Hillside – this location is relatively unremarkable when it comes to loot, so only come here if
  • Lavish Lair – a decent amount of loot, but beware of Oscar and his minions. Defeating him will give you some valuable loot.
  • Pleasant Piazza – a good amount of loot here, but the main attraction is the network of tunnels that you can use to ambush your foes.
  • Rebel’s Roost – there’s not a lot of loot here, but the underground sections have weapon cases with upgraded guns.
  • Reckless Railways – while not the best place for overall loot, there’s a lot more cover to allow you to win firefights. You can also easily catch the train here.
  • Ritzy Riviera – there’s a vault here that you can open for good loot, but otherwise, it’s a bit out of the way.
  • Ruined Reels – normally relatively quiet and can have a good amount of loot, including a weapon case hidden away underground.
  • Snooty Steppes – a good place for loot, but beware of the Peter Griffin NPC boss that patrols the area, he packs a punch.
