Best Places to Loot in Battle Royale
Naturally, there are a lot of different places that players can look for loot in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode, and while all of these places will feature- some kind of loot for players to find and equip, not all of them will feature some of the best weapons in Battle Royale—which is really what most players will be looking for. To help stem the learning curve, here are three of the best places to look for loot in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode.
Fortnite Battle Royale has evolved quite a bit since the game’s release, and that means it is time to take a look back over our content and make sure we’re offering the most up to date information. That’s why we’ve brought some updates to our guides, and below you’ll find a completely updated article on the best places to loot in Fortnite Battle Royale, which will help make sure you’re staying on top of your game.
Wailing Wood remains one of our favorite places to land in Fortnite Battle Royale, and it’s easily been one of our go-to places since launch. The area continues to offer plenty of loot for our fireteam, and while this section of the map has grown more popular throughout the past few months, it’s still got plenty to offer those who don’t enjoy dropping into the more highly populated areas. That being said, the loot isn’t as good as it once was, but players still have a chance to find plenty of weapons, items, and chests to open up for goodies.
On top of the buildings and searchable areas in Wailing Wood, players also have the option to loot a tower nearby that usually contains a chest full of goodies. This chest has been a lifesaver for us many times, and we’ll continue to trust in it until we have reason not to.
This area is located smack dab in the middle of the map almost and it’s going to have quite a bit of conflict to be found. It’s still one of the absolutely best places to get your hands on great loot, though, and the three main hangar-like warehouses usually have good weapons and items inside for players to loot. You can also destroy the ramps leading into them to create a defendable point, if needed. There’s also a good chance you’ll find some chests in here to loot, which will increase your chances of getting more loot by quite a bit.
The biggest issue with Dusty Depot is the fact that the place is centrally located, making it a hot zone for players dropping in. It has access to some nice cities as well, which makes it even more appealing. If you want tense action from the start, though, this is one of the best places to start currently.
Chests abound inside this resort-like area, and we’ve landed her with a full party of four multiple times. Not only is there plenty of loot around on the ground, but you’ll also find a slew of chests hidden within the attics of the different buildings in the area. Just make sure you’re listening out for the chiming noise they make when you’re looting. This area isn’t all that popular, but it has been known to be a hotspot depending on where the bus flies.
These are three of the best areas that you’ll find to loot in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode, and you can check out our other Fortnite guides for even more helpful information about the game and its new Battle Royale mode.
