Here are seven great spots from across the map to choose from, along with some general tips and tricks for how to get the most out of the first few minutes of every Fortnite match you play.

Landing 101

Most of the time, you’ll want to reach the island as quickly as possible so you can find a weapon before your opponents do. With that in mind, there are are a few important factors to consider. First of all, your parachute will deploy automatically (and slow down your descent) once you reach a certain distance from the ground. So make sure to avoid any mountains or elevated areas that could trip the parachute early on your way to a landing spot.

You can also use this mechanic to your advantage by dropping down above a body of water — either a lake/river on the map or the ocean that surrounds the island on all sides — which won’t trigger the parachute. That way you can control exactly when it activates. 

Another trick is to plan your descent so that when your parachute deploys you still need to cover some ground by gliding towards your chosen landing spot. Otherwise, if you get too close before the parachute comes out you’ll have to slowly float straight down, giving your enemies plenty of time to get there first.
