Fortnite new map, landmarks and named locations explained

Every location you can explore in Chapter 2's new map.

Fortnite's new map for Chapter 2 brings with it a new set of named locations and landmarks to explore.

In a first for Fortnite, you have to visit them all to reveal their names on the map.

Though the job is seemingly made easy for you by showing question marks across the map, the difference between named locations and landmark locations isn't clear - which is where this new map explainer page comes in.

Completing these challenges will progress your Fortnite Chapter 2 Battle Pass.

What is Fortnite's new map and how do I reveal named locations and landmarks?

Here is a look at Fortnite's new map:

However, when you first play Chapter Two, the map is washed with grey, with the name of named locations replaced by question marks.

Essentially, you need to visit each of these - by land or from the Battle Bus - to reveal the map.

If you have visited all the question marks and there's still some landmarks left, then visiting the grey locations will help you complete that step.

Doing so will complete the New World challenges 'Discover Named Locations' and 'Discover Landmarks'.

When you start Fortnite Chapter Two, the entirety of the map is greyed out, and you have to visit each location one-by-one to reveal it.

Visit 10 of the 12 ??? locations on the map to complete this challenge step. Their names are:

  • Craggy Cliffs
  • Dirty Docks
  • Frenzy Farm
  • Holly Hedges
  • Lazy Lake
  • Misty Meadows
  • Retail Row
  • Salty Springs
  • Slurpy Swamp
  • Steamy Stacks
  • Sweaty Sands
  • Weeping Woods

Fortnite is back! As well as new Fortnite map locations there are Fortnite Chapter 2 Battle Pass skins to earn and various new features, including how to fish in Fortnite. For Week 5 we have The Lowdown Challenges, which include visiting Visit E.G.O. outposts. Finally, there is a set of hidden letters in loading screens locations to find each week.

As well as the above named locations, you also need to visit a new location type - landmarks. These are points of interest that aren't quite big settlements like named locations, but aren't empty spaces on the map either.

To complete this challenge step, visit all of the ??? locations - this will complete the named locations step. From there, you'll then have some greyed out locations to visit that isn't named - for example, the small island right in the centre of the map.

Visiting these locations will colour in the map completely - and complete the 'Discover Landmarks' set. There are far more than 10 landmarks on the map, so pick and choose the ones you fancy.

It should also be noted that there can be additional landmarks within a greyed out location - but visiting the 'main' one will usually flesh it out on the map.
