The Fortnite map has changed completely for the fresh chapter of the battle royale, which gives us a whole new island to explore. Obviously this introduces a significant number of Fortnite map changes to get to grips with, both with the overhaul of the environment and with new areas being added as the frost thaws to reveal what's hidden beneath. We have several returning locations for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 that haven't featured since the first chapter, but as a majority of the map is new there's still plenty for Fortnite players to discover. If you want the latest information on this new battleground, then here are the biggest Fortnite map changes.

As you can see from the full Fortnite map above, this island has completely changed since the flip for the start of Chapter 3. The island itself is divided into three distinct biomes – snowy on the northwest side, tropical across the middle and to the east, with a smaller area of desert to the south – with the snow and ice now covering a small section of the map as it begins to thaw. There are now 13 named locations marked on the map as follows:

  • Camp Cuddle
  • Chonker's Speedway
  • Condo Canyon
  • Coney Crossroads
  • The Daily Bugle
  • Greasy Grove
  • The Joneses
  • Logjam Lumberyard
  • Rocky Reels
  • Sanctuary
  • Shift Shafts
  • Sleepy Sound
  • Tilted Towers

Obviously all of this is new on the grand scheme of things, but let's take a look at some of the stand-out locations for Fortnite map changes:

Tilted Towers

If you've been with the game for a while then you'll instantly recognise Tilted Towers, the sweatiest landing spot from the original Fortnite map, which has been revealed from beneath the melting ice and snow. It has the exact same layout as before, and you can expect immediate combat if you drop there from the battle bus.

Sanctuary and Mighty Monument

The Sanctuary compound is home to The Seven, in the tropical area on the east side of the island. In the bay you'll see the gigantic rock statue dedicated to The Foundation, surrounded by updrafts you can ride to reach the top of the monument to Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's character.

Seven Outposts

The Imagined Order presence on the island has been replaced by The Seven, and you'll find Seven Outposts dotted around the map. As well as the usual array of weapons and chest, you'll also find Fortnite vaults tucked away in each Outpost, which will need a minimum of two players to interact with and open.

The Daily Bugle

With Spider-Man joining the roster of heroes for this season, it isn't much of a surprise to find The Daily Bugle offices on the island. There are plenty of spider webs strung between the buildings already, which you can use to bounce around and quickly traverse the area.

Greasy Grove

Greasy Grove hasn't officially been seen in full since Season X of Chapter 1, but it's now been reinstated to the southwest of the island. The Tacos restaurant is back, but don't expect any Taco Time dances this time around.

Shifty Shafts

Shifty Shafts is another location that hasn't been seen since Chapter 1, but has now returned in roughly the same location as before to the north of the island. There's plenty of loot to be had here, especially in the underground mines, though watch out for enemies as firefights are tricky in those narrow tunnels. 

Chonker's Speedway

Located at the south end of the island, Chonker's Speedway provides an extensive racetrack circuit looping around the desert biome. Keep this location in mind, as there's bound to be challenges launching during the season that will involving racing around this course.
