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

The snow has melted and, with its passing, comes changes to Fortnite Chapter 3's map as Titled Tower, an old favourite location, returns:

The complete Fortnite Chapter 3 map

Here's how Fortnite Chapter 3's new map looked at the start of Season 1:

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 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.

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 15 named locations you will need to visit:

  • Camp Cuddle
  • Chonker's Speedway
  • Command Cavern
  • Condo Canyon
  • Coney Crossroads
  • Greasy Grove
  • Logjam Lumberyard
  • Rocky Reels
  • Sanctuary
  • Shifty Shafts
  • Sleepy Sound
  • Synapse Station
  • The Collider
  • 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!
