Explore Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 locations

Several new locations appeared with the arrival of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4. They're obviously inspired by the Marvel universe and the most impressive of them seems to be the huge flying aircraft visible in the Avengers.

Changes in the Arsenal

Season 4 will bring a little freshness to the playable weapon pools. In particular, Pump Shotgun will be back, and some weapons have been vaulted in exchange.

New fish appeared with Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4

Fishing in Fortnite isn't just a recreational activity. Fish are real resources to use and Chapter 2 Season 4 introduces new specimens that offer various bonuses.

Chest Appearance

The rate of appearance of chests has changed. Since the beginning of Chapter 2, it was 100%. It was possible to know in advance all the locations when you were diving on a spawn. In Season 4, things will be a bit different, since some chests will have a spawn rate of 50% to 100%, and others a spawn rate of 70% to 100%.

This means that you'll no longer be sure to find chests in the usual locations.
