Fortnite new map, landmarks and named locations explained

Every location you can explore in Chapter 3's new map.

Chapter 3 introduces a new Fortnite map, containing a new set of named locations and landmarks, for you to explore.

When you first start playing, the map will be slate grey, but, by visiting the various named locations and landmarks, you'll be able to bring it to life.

While finding the named locations is pretty easy - thanks to the question marks - uncovering the landmarks locations is a little harder due to them not being marked on the map.

What is Fortnite's new map and how to reveal named locations and landmarks

Below you can see Fortnite Chapter 3's new map:

The complete Fortnite Chapter 3 map.

When you first start playing, however, the map will be completely grey and the names of the named locations will simply be question marks.

To reveal the new map in all its glory, you need to visit each of the named locations and landmarks - be it on foot or landing from the Battle Bus.

How the Chapter 3 map will look when you first start playing.

We recommend visiting the named locations first, because it will allow you to narrow down the landmark locations by looking for the grey spots left on your map.

Chapter 3 of Fortnite has arrived with a new collection of Battle Pass skins! There's a new map to explore, The Foundation skin, earn Victory Crowns, character collection to complete and a new Victory Umbrellato collect. You can also now slide, web swing, find device locations and open vaults!

Fortnite new map named locations explained

The entirety of the map will be faded grey when first starting playing Fortnite Chapter Three and, to give it colour, you need to visit each of the locations - both named and landmark - one-by-one.

Discovering 10 named locations will also complete one of the Season quests, which will reward you with 25k XP for the Battle Pass.

Here are the 12 named locations you will need to visit:

  • Camp Cuddle
  • Chonker's Speedway
  • Condo Canyon
  • Coney Crossroads
  • Greasy Grove
  • Logjam Lumberyard
  • Rocky Reels
  • Sanctuary
  • Shifty Shafts
  • Sleepy Sound
  • The Daily Bugle
  • The Joneses

Fortnite landmarks explained

Visiting landmarks, just like the named locations, allows you to fill in the grey section on the new Fortnite Chapter 3 map. Landmarks are smaller than the named locations and usually contain a small area for you to explore.

You'll naturally encounter landmarks from simply exploring the Chapter 3 map, but, if you want to fill in the new map quickly, we recommend visiting all of the named locations first. Doing so will fill in the majority of the map, allowing you to easily spot the landmark locations and, eventually, leave you with a completed map.


Have fun during the exploring the new map!
