After a long wait, Fortnite Chapter 2 (we’re just going to call it Fortnite 2 from here on out) – Season 1 is finally here with the black hole weirdness behind us. The biggest change for the new season? A brand new map.
It’s been a long time coming, too. Compared to the likes of PUBG, Epic have always stuck with the “same” map across two years, making major changes with each new season. Season X introduced Rift Zones to bring back the classics, but it was hard to shake the feeling like there was just way too much going on at once.
The new island, however, is far cleaner with it having a consistent identity and a very throwback aesthetic. Here’s hoping the new map stays that way.
Fortnite 2 – Season 1 New Map
Here’s an overview of the new map from Epic themselves.
Here’s the in-game map for Fortnite 2 with all named locations following it. Bold names are old spots.
Craggy Cliffs Dirty Docks Frenzy Farm Holly Hedges Lazy Lake Misty Meadows Pleasant Park Retail Row Salty Springs Slurpy Swamp Steamy Stacks Sweaty Sands Weeping Woods
Places in Fortnite 2 are divided into two separate things: named locations and landmarks. Locations are the above, while landmarks are unnamed locations that you also have to discover for yourself. Risky Reels, for instance, returns as a landmark after being gone since Season 8.
Here’s the complete list of landmarks for the new map.
Base Camp Hotel Camp Cod Coral Cove Crash Site E.G.O. Barracks E.G.O. Comm Tower E.G.O. Hangar E.G.O. Science Station E.G.O. Staging Post Eye Land FN Radio Flopper Pond Fort Crumpet Gorgeous Gorge Hilltop House Homely Hills location Hydro 1 Lake Canoe Lazy Lake Island Lockie’s Lighthouse Mount F8 Mowdown Pristine Point Rainbow Rentals Risky Reels Shanty Town Shipwreck Cove Stumpy Ridge The Orchard Weather Station
The map will be greyed out until you venture out into the map yourself and discover them.
There are a lot of new locations for Fortnite 2, but it’s good to see Epic bring back a few of their old classics to make the transition feel a little smoother. With 13 named locations, you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to wear to land in in Fortnite 2 – Season 1.
Here’s the very first map for Season 1 of Chapter 1 for reference.
And the last map from Season X.
A lot has definitely changed from the original map, but this appears to be a clean slate for the new Fortnite island. Hopefully Epic don’t start bloating it with a tonne of weird changes and biomes that it doesn’t need.
