Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 brought Hot Spots back to the map, and here’s everything you need to know about them, including how you can land at Hot Spots.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 added a ton of new content to the popular Battle Royale title. From brand-new experiences such as LEGO Fortnite to new items like Society Medallions, the latest season offers plenty of things to keep players engaged.

Other elements, however, remain strong from other seasons, like Hot Spots. These locations are relevant in most matches, and sometimes you’ll be required to land or perform certain action on them to clear different quests. So, here’s everything you need to know about Hot Spots in Fortnite.

What are Hot Spots in Fortnite?

Hot Spots in Fortnite are POIs on the map that are populated with flying drones carrying high-rarity loot. These locations are chosen randomly at the beginning of every match.

Hot Spots were first added to Fortnite during Chapter 1 before being vaulted in later updates.

When visiting these locations, you can shoot down drones to collect powerful weapons early on in the match. There will be multiple drones in one Hot Spot so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.
