Fortnite new map additions in Season 3 explained

A look at the new locations you can explore in Season 3's map.

Fortnite's map has been updated with a number of new locations and changes with the arrival of Season 3 and its new Battle Pass skins.

The map represents the theme of the new Season perhaps more than any season before it - with huge swathes flooded following the events of The Device event.

As with Chapter 2 Season 1 and Season 2, you have to visit all of these locations in person before they reveal themselves on the map. But if you want to know exactly where you're going, this map page will come in handy.

Looking for more from the new season? There are several additions - such as Catty Corner Vault, Sharks, the Fortilla whirlpool, Homely Hills Gnomes - while our Season 3 Battle Pass skins and Aquaman skin pages showcase all the new rewards.

Here's Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2's new flooded map:

Fortnite Chapter 3's map.

Within it are nine hidden named locations which only appear when you visit for the first time:

  • The Fortilla
  • Rickety Rig
  • Sweaty Sands
  • Salty Springs
  • The Authority
  • Pleasant Park
  • Frenzy Farm
  • Steamy Stacks
  • Catty Corner

Note once you've done with these, there will be some locations left over to uncover. These are tied to specific landmarks, and once you found the landmark within that region, the surrounding greyed out areas will reveal themselves.

And, for a final point of comparison, here is the difference between the start of Season 2 and Season 3 in Chapter 2:


The final thing to note is developer Epic Games has confirmed the map will continue to change over the course of the season as the water recedes - bringing with it new locations and new vehicles to explore the map with. Lots to look forward to!


Fortnite Season 3 has arrived, introducing Battle Pass skins, including Kit, Jules and Eternal Knight and a Aquaman skin. In this new map, you can use whirlpools, sharks, visit the Catty Corner vault, and the gnomes at Homely Hills as part of challenges.

These locations will no doubt all feature in Challenges as part of the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass over time - so best get used to them.

Some already have - with the likes of damaging Sharks at Sweaty Sands, the Catty Corner Vault and Gnomes at unnamed landmark Homely Hills.
