Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 is finally here and comes with a host of changes to the map, so here’s everything that you need to know about it, including all the new and removed POIs.

Whenever there’s a new season in Fortnite, the developers add a bunch of new POIs and NPCs to overhaul the map with a new theme. Fortnite’s Chapter 5 Season 3 map follows the Wrecked theme and has POIs that resonate with the overall vibe of the season.

So, here’s a list of all the new POIs that you will see in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, along with the ones that have left the island following the map changes.

All new POIs in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3

As seen in the Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 map, there are three new POIs that have been added to the island. These are as follows:


Fortnite Nitrodome
This place has a lot of flashy lights and features an oval track.

The Nitrodome is located close to the center of the map and is a place where the Ringmaster Scarr conducts their car circus.

Redline Rig

Redline Rig
Redline Rig will have abundant stores on Nitro.

Redline Rig is a place that is controlled by The Machinist, a mechanic for the Wasteland Warriors. This is also a Nitro refinery, so you will come across abundant Nitro stores here.

Brutal Beachhead

Brutal Beachhead
The long-awaited Shark POI is finally on the island.

The Brutal Beachhead is the place where you will come across the Megalo Don, a member of the Wasteland Warriors.

The Brutal Beachhead is the Shark POI that was showcased in the teaser trailer for the new season, and was seen in various leaks in the weeks leading up to the update.

Apart from the new POIs, there are multiple locations that have been reprised from the previous season, and are as follows:

  • Rebel’s Roost
  • Classy Courts
  • Lavish Lair
  • Grand Glacier
  • Restored Reels
  • Reckless Railway
  • Grim Gate
  • The Underworld
  • Mount Olympus
  • Brawler’s Battleground

All Fortnite POIs being vaulted in Chapter 5 Season 3

At the time of writing this article, Fencing Fields is the only POI that has been removed from the island in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 and was replaced by the Nitrodome.

Major map changes occur only when there’s a new seasonal launch, so it’s unlikely that any other POI will be vaulted over the course of the season.

That sums up everything that you need to know about all the map changes in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3. There are a lot of new cosmetics in the Fortnite Battle Pass, and in the new Fallout x Fortnite crossover for you to check out.
