Season 5 has been out for a few weeks now, so where are the best places to land?
The question is totally subjective depending on your goal; are you striving for that first win, are you a strategic runner around the map or are you simply going for a high kill count?
Here are my top three go to locations that have helped me achieve my 550 sweet Victory Royales
The All Rounder – Lonely Lodge
My crew and I call this ‘ye old faithful’ because more often than not, from this landing spot is where we win.
What is there not to like?
12 chest spawn locations, plenty of huge trees to farm wood, mushrooms on the ground for free shield and a moai statue with rifts for the ultimate fast travel across the map.
The named spot is probably the most underrated place to drop on the map and rarely brings any trouble.
Free lotting … yay!
The Secret – Unnamed location – South of Paradise Palms H9/H10 Grid
The biggest secret of season 5 just so happens to be one of the densest loot spawn locations on the map.
It’s actually ridiculous this place isn’t more popular than it already is, I mean come on, 18 chest spawn locations, that’s three more locations than Paradise Palms!
Just be aware, if it’s on the bus route it’s like a mini Tilted Towers and if you want materials you’ll have to break all the furniture.
However, if uncontested you’ll be looted up like Rambo and you’re right next to a rift for easy access to the rest of the map.
The Diehard – Tilted Towers
Personally, I wish it wasn’t the case as the game has a real mid-game population problem but how can I not add this place?
Just two or so weeks after the map update and everyone is straight back to this bad boy for obvious reasons.
There are 40+ chests, half the bus lands here, it’s so central on the map you’re never really going to get caught by the storm and during mid-game everyone rotates through it so you never need to move.
If you want kills or want to get better then this is the best place to land on the map – you just can’t deny why this place is a fan favourite.
If you end up surviving the chaos that ensues after landing in this location… you’re a beast, most likely with a double-digit kill tally and I can’t wait to meet you on the island.
