After almost 36 hours of nothing but a black hole, Fortnite transferred into what feels like an alternate reality, and the first mission set of Chapter 2, Season 1 is called “New World.” It’s all about exploring the new map players find themselves in when things kick off. In addition to unlocking the map by discovering all the new named locations, players have to “discover landmarks” a total of 10 times. What and where are they?
Think of stone heads, the crown of RVs, the huge metal llama, or any other distinguishable object from Chapter 1. They vary wildly, but they’re always easy to spot. If you see any weird objects from a distance that look as if they’ve been constructed to look like something else, then you’ll probably get credit for this challenge by walking right up to it.
It looks like there are a total of around 30 landmarks across the map, and you only need 10 to complete the challenge.
This should be a comprehensive list, but once players complete the challenge, the landmarks no longer ping the player upon discovery, so it’s tough to verify. It would be easy to just ignore the challenge and accidentally discover enough on your own, but there are a few pointed strategies you could take to make it go smoothly.
Landing at the snow-capped mountain southeast of Misty Meadows (the settlement just south of the southern lake) is a good start. That worked in the video at the top of this article. There’s a campsite high on the mountain called “Base Camp Foxtrot” and then a man made out of pipes aptly called “Pipeman” southwest of that. Of all the landmarks, these two are the closest together. There are outposts for an organization called E.G.O., the return of the Risky Reels drive-in movie theater, the Orchard, Pizza Pete’s Food Circle, FN Radio Station, the Red Steel Bridge, and many more.
Landmarks can be bridges, monuments, businesses, and just about everything else.
You could conceivably spend an entire match wandering the southeast quadrant of the map working on this challenge, but all thing’s considered, this challenge should be easy for Fortnite veterans — despite this being a whole new world.
Fortnite: Battle Royale Chapter 2, Season 1 has only just begun, but according to the in-game countdown, it should end on December 7, 2019.
