Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 points of interest

With this revamp, some season 1 POIs have remained, while others – located in the south east of the map – are totally new. Many of those that remain, such as Lonely Labs, have still changed in appearance for season 2. All POIs, old and new, are listed below:

  • Kenjutsu Crossing – a new area of the map for season 2, Kenjutsu Crossing is a more peaceful and rural area inspired by Japanese architecture, with a palatial centrepiece, and is one of the key areas for finding the new Kinetic Blade mythic weapon.
  • Knotty Nets – Knotty nets is a fishing zone, with plenty of smaller buildings around the water for more loot.
  • Mega City – the big one, this is the Neo-Tokyo inspired city filled with buildings littered with loot, new grind rails, and massive holographic images.
  • Steamy Springs – Steamy Springs is a more residential area of the new Japanese-themed corner of the Fortnite map, featuring Sakura trees, bamboo, and a flag capture zone.
  • Breakwater Bay – the medieval town on the north-west coast remains, but has had an overhaul since season 1. It’s home to several houses full of booty.
  • The Citadel – a huge castle town, this area is well-guarded by a boss known only as The Ageless One.
  • Anvil Square – a medieval town filled with shops and houses full of loot.
  • Shattered Slabs – a quarry filled with loot, but also Kinetic Ore that, when hit, launches it in the direction of your last hit. More hits launch it further afield.
  • Frenzy Fields – a huge farmland that has barns filled with loot.
  • Slappy Shores – a modern dockland that also has a factory where Fortnite Slap Juice is made.
  • Brutal Bastion – a castle high on a mountain filled with loot.
  • Lonely Labs – a modern polar expedition with very little loot.

How to find hot spots in Fortnite

You may have seen a challenge refer to these points of interests as hot spots, but what exactly are they? Put simply, a Fortnite hot spot is any named location that appears on the in-game map with yellow text. Only two or three locations per match will be hot spots, and they’ll change every game, so check the in-game map to get some intel in advance.

When you arrive at a hot spot, look for some drones flying around. Each one contains rare rarity or higher loot, so shoot them down to collect the goodies inside. Just be careful, as shooting them will alert nearby players.
