A new season means changes are in store once again for the Fortnite map, and although they aren't as drastic as the previous flood which completely changed the landscape for a while, there are still notable differences to be aware of. With the Fortnite Season 4 map we welcome back a familiar layout of the island, though we also have to bid a fond farewell to Pleasant Park as the previous base there has now expanded to take over the whole area. In keeping with the Marvel theme currently running through Fortnite we also have a number of new landmarks tied to specific superheroes, so let us give you the latest information about what's new in the Fortnite Chapter 2 map, as well as provide our advice on the best places to land.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 map changes
From our first look at the Fortnite map for Season 4, we can see that things have largely returned to how they were before the widespread floods around the island. There's only one place of interest change big enough to be named on the map, although several other locations have been added which we'll also cover.
Fortnite Doom's Domain
The only major named location change for Season 4, Doom's Domain replaces Pleasant Park and becomes the only fixed base on the map. Expect to face plenty of Henchmen patrolling this area, and watch out for Doctor Doom himself in the largest building to the north.
Fortnite Quinjet Patrol Landing Sites
Fortnite Quinjet Patrol landing sites spawn in four random locations around the island for each match, though they have a column of blue smoke rising from them and appear as small white icons on the map to help you find them.
Fortnite Sentinel Graveyard
Up in the hills south of The Authority, you'll find the Fortnite Sentinel Graveyard strewn with broken robotic bodies. If you jump on any of the glowing pads on their hands you'll be launched into the air, allowing you to deploy your glider and fly away from the area.
Fortnite Trask Transport Truck
The Trask Transport Truck is one of several new Marvel-themed landmarks to appear, with this one being found northwest of Doom's Domain. There are several chests dotted around the roadside, plus a truck you can drive away in.
Fortnite Ant Manor
Fortnite Ant Manor is situated just northeast of Holly Hedges, which features a number of Ant-Man references and Easter eggs. As well as a chest in the oversized dog house, you'll also find them in the dog bowl, in the grass near the rocks, and in the tunnels beneath.
Fortnite Panther's Prowl
Dominating the view over the hills west of Misty Meadow, Panther's Prowl is a fitting tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman. There isn't much to collect here, with one chest under the archway at the edge and another perch precariously in the panther's mouth.
Best places to land on the Fortnite map
Question is, where should you be going for the best loot and chance to win the game? These are the locations we reckon you should land at on the Fortnite Season 4 map:
First up for the best places to land on the Fortnite map is Steamy Stacks, a huge power plant in the north-east corner of the map. With a monument to everyone's favourite cube, Kevin, in the front car park, there's plenty of chests to be found in and around this huge point of interest. It's also in the very corner of the map, so you'll avoid all the players that love to go to the centre at the start.
It's one of the few long-standing locations and believe it or not, Retail Row is still a great place to land, with numerous houses and shops to loot. At the early stage in a new season, it's also unlikely you'll run into loads of players here at the start, as people will want to explore the fresh locations before going somewhere as OG as Retail Row.
If you land on top of Hotel 23 (the tallest building) and work your way down, you can hoover up plenty of chests and ammo boxes along the way. Once that's done, there are lots of other buildings to search, and don't forget to check out the vehicles in the RV Park for more hidden goodies.
