The most dangerous locations on Fortnite Season 5’s map

The deadliest Fortnite locations

When you jump from the battle bus, the location you land at can determine how long you’ll survive a battle royale match in Fortnite. If you want to come out on top, then we recommend avoiding these dangerous locations on the map.

There’s a lot to enjoy when playing Fortnite, as the game isn’t just famous for its fun crossovers with franchises like Predator, and Halo. The battle royale also has a huge map for you to run through, with a wide variety of landmarks to visit.

However, some areas tend to be more densely populated with players, which makes them insanely dangerous. Landing in one of these hotspots can result in you getting gunned down immediately, so you should avoid those if you want to last longer in a match.

Luckily, one Fortnite leaker has highlighted the locations on the map which have the highest number of player deaths, so you’ll know which dangerous areas to stay away from.

What is the deadliest location in Fortnite?

This information comes from Lucas7yoshi, who was able to gather a sample consisting of 50,000 deaths that took place during Fortnite Season 5. This allowed the Fortnite leaker to pinpoint the exact locations of each death, and see where they happened most often.

Putting these locations together created a heatmap that displays the most popular player hotspots in the battle royale. The areas that are visited the most tend to have the highest number of deaths, so knowing where they are can improve your chances of survival.

The map attributes the largest amount of player kills at Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, and Retail Row. Stealthy Stronghold has also seen a huge increase in player activity due to the recent arrival of the Predator.

Based on this data, the most dangerous location in Fortnite is Salty Towers, which can be found just west of the Zero Point. This is in large part due to its position near the center of the map, as so much of the action is concentrated there.

Another reason for a large number of players in this location is the fact that it’s covered in sand. Fortnite’s sand tunneling feature allows you to hide underneath the ground, and then wait for your opponents to show up before sneak attacking them.

This location is a new addition in Season 5, being a combination of Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so that just adds another reason as to why players frequently visit it. You can take a look at the high amount of player deaths, marked as red dots on the image below.

As you may have noticed, this images shows that most of the deaths in the area took place in the tall building at the south of the area. That means that we now know where the most dangerous building is in Fortnite Season 5.

If you want to survive until the end of a match, then your best bet is to stay clear of Salty Towers for as long as possible. You can use this time to collect some neat gear to improve your chances of coming out on top.

You can use Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item to share pizza slices with your teammates. Here’s where you can find Pizza Party and how you can use it in Fortnite Chapter 3.

There is a ton of fun to be had in Fortnite Chapter 3, whether by finding Klombo dinosaurs around the island or unlocking skins like the Hawkeye outfits. Now, you can also collect pizza in the game.

The Pizza Party item is another new addition that greatly benefits your entire squad. You’ll also need to know where to find it for a Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 Quest that requires you to ‘take pizza slices.’

Here’s everything you need to know about Pizza Party in Fortnite.

Where to find a Pizza Party in Fortnite

Tomatohead location on Fortnite map

You can purchase the new Pizza Party item from the NPC Tomatohead at the Pizza Pit restaurant. You can find this location at the Tilted Towers POI which has returned to Fortnite Island.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Head to the Pizza Pit restaurant
  2. Interact with Tomatohead to speak with him
  3. Select the Pizza Party item and purchase it
  4. Pizza Party will be added to your inventory

Purchasing the Pizza Party item will cost you 50 Gold Bars. If you don’t have this amount saved up already then you can check out our detailed guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

Alternatively, you can also collect a Pizza Party from Chests and Supply Drops or by destroying Loot Llamas. While this doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find the item right away, it’s certainly the cheaper option.

What does a Pizza Party do in Fortnite

Fortnite’s Pizza Party item recovers your Health and Shield. You simply need to approach it and press the ‘consume’ button to use it. You can also save it in your inventory by pressing ‘take’ instead.

While pizza slices can restore 100 Health, they will only recover up to 50 Shield. So, if you’ve already recovered your Shield, you may want to leave some slices behind for your teammates to use.

One Chapter 3 Quest tasks you with taking a pizza slice from a Pizza Party. You can get this done by simply aiming and throwing a Pizza Party down to the ground similar to how you would toss a grenade.

You can also feed pizza slices to a Klombos dinosaur by throwing a Pizza Party near one of them. While Klomberries are their favorite food, they won’t mind eating the slices and leaving behind loot for you to collect.

That covers everything you need to know about Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item. It can greatly help your entire squad when your Health and Shields are low, so it’s worth going out to find the item.

Fortnite Chapter 3 is well underway, and there is a ton of fun content to enjoy such as the Klombo Dinosaurs and Hawkeye outfits. However, there are also a few issues that the devs are attempting to fix.

Fortnite updates such as the recent 19.10 patch tend to bring a wide variety of bug fixes and changes to the game. However, the 3.44 patch makes a relatively minor change to the battle royale title.

The latest update only has a single patch note as it focuses on fixing one issue within the game’s Creative Mode. While most players won’t notice the difference, the fix is still greatly appreciated.

Support-A-Creator UI in Fortnite

There aren’t a lot of exciting changes in the 3.44 update patch as compared to the 19.10 update that brought back the fan-favorite Tilted Towers. However, Epic Games did fix one problem:

  • Fixed the issue with the Support-A-Creator UI missing from the pre-game lobby of some Creative islands.

The Support-A-Creator UI was missing from pre-game lobbies on a few Creative Islands. Now, the latest update has fixed this issue and players will be able to support their favorite content creators again.

This fix has gone live on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as PC, and Android. The developers reassured players that they’ll inform them when the update arrives on the Nintendo Switch version.

Hopefully, we’ll see a major update patch released in the new future. It could bring a plethora of exciting new content to the battle royale, including the highly-anticipated Green Goblin outfit and the return of lightsabers.

New Fortnite leak claims lightsabers could return in Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover

Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to bring lightsabers back to the battle royale as part of a new Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover.

Fortnite has become known for its major collaborations with other popular franchises. Epic Games have brought a ton of crossover content from the Star Wars universe to the battle royale.

The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass, and Boba Fett is currently an unlockable skin. Now, some leaks suggest that Epic Games are bringing back lightsabers as part of a Star Wars Obi-Wan collaboration.

According to notable Fortnite leaker ‘FNAssist,’ Epic Games re-added Star Wars lightsaber files in the v19.10 update. This means that they could be planning to bring them back to the game in the near future.

Lightsabers are some of the most iconic weapons in cinema history, and they were available as Mythic melee weapons during Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2. There were four differently-colored versions of them in the game.

Now, players are speculating that the weapon might be included in a collaboration with the upcoming ‘Obi-Wan’ Disney+ Star Wars series. We might also see the titular character arrive as a new skin.

The leaks state that the 19.10 update added lightsaber animations along with some melee combat mechanics, gameplay abilities, and VFX. This could mean that the weapon will make its return in the game.

Alternatively, they could be working on a new melee weapon and are basing it off the animation and abilities of the lightsaber. However, this information has yet to be verified by the developers themselves.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt until Epic Games officially announce something. We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this.
