The new locations in Fortnite are: The Shark, The Yacht, The Agency, The Grotto, and The Rig. Some of the new locations in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 can also be spotted in the season trailer above.
Appropriately named, the Shark is a mansion that sits on an island in the northwest corner of the map, shown in red above. It shouldn’t take players long to figure out why the island is called the Shark.
Players can visit the above-ground portion of the island or they can enter through the mouth of the shark to explore an underground area.
The Yacht is, well, a yacht! Indicated by the purple arrow in the map above, the ship is docked just off of the northeastern shore and has five different levels for players to explore.
A visit to the bottom floor will reveal a few cool rooms, including one protected by a vault door. Those who make it inside will find a few cool treasures.
The Agency is the headquarters for our beloved characters this season and is shown in orange above. If you’re not familiar with the new skins this season, be sure to check out all of the skins included in the Chapter 2 Season 2 Battle Pass.
Located in the dead center of the island, the Agency offers players plenty of places to explore and things to uncover.
The Grotto is an underground facility located along the eastern edge of the map, as indicated by the light blue arrow in the map above.
At this time, not a lot is known about what goes on in the underground bunker, but it appears to be some type of top secret spy headquarters. So, make sure you drop by and have a look around.
The Rig is very similar to that of a deep sea oil rig and is located just off the southwestern coast, seen in yellow on the map at the top of the page.
The isolated structure appears to belong to a company known as Spillexx, as they have plenty of containers littered around The Rig.
What Are Fortnite Vaults?
Vaults can be found within each of the new Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 locations. In order to ender the Vault and receive some desirable loot, players will need to obtain a keycard by killing the miniboss in that area.
Each location will have a different miniboss, who will be protected by henchmen. In order to obtain the keycard and unlock the Vault, players will need to kill the miniboss, not the henchmen.
Below are all of the Fortnite Vault minibosses in each of the new map locations:
- The Shark – Skye
- The Yacht – Meowscles
- The Agency – Midas
- The Grotto – Brutus
- The Rig – TNTina
Once you’ve killed the miniboss guarding your specific Fortnite Vault, you’ll need to pick up the keycard and locate the Vault.
Once you’ve found it, use the keycard to scan in and collect your treasures. However, be careful, because Vaults are closely guarded!
Now that you’ve learned a little bit about all of the new locations, map changes, and Vaults in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, queue up a game and have a look around!
