You may not have realised it, but the Fortnite Upstate New York location has been staring you in the face the whole time, and it's actually the largest area on the map. As one of the Marvel superhero locations beamed down to the island this season, once you recognise it you'll find it impossible to overlook, and after it peaked a little too soon due to previous leaks it's now part of the Fortnite Week 10 challenges. You need to head here to work through a standard chest searching assignment, which means knowing where to find this rural area in Fortnite is essential information, so let us direct you to the Fortnite Upstate New York location and highlight some potential chests to search there.

The Fortnite Upstate New York location is actually a rather huge area, pretty much dwarfing any of the official Named Locations on the island. Helpfully due to the way this area was formed, it already has a ring drawn around it on the map – basically, anywhere within that darkened circle counts as Fortnite Upstate New York, including Stark Industries itself, so you can search chests there if you don't want to explore the wider area.

Because the Fortnite Upstate New York location is so vast, there are many places within it where you can search chests. We've marked some suggestions with an X on the map above, but bear in mind that this is not intended to be an exhaustive list of every chest location, especially as they spawn randomly in each match. Instead, use this as a suggestion for places to visit if you're not having much luck discovering them yourself. Search a total of seven chests at Upstate New York in Fortnite, and that challenge will be all wrapped up.
