chapter 3 introduced a new fortnite map and, now that we have reached Chapter 3 Season 4, this map contains a wide range of named places and landmarks it’s up to you to explore.
When you start playing Fortnite, the map will be colored slate gray, but as you visit named locations and landmarks, you’ll gradually restore its glory.
While finding the named locations is fairly straightforward – thanks to the question marks – locating the landmarks is a bit trickier.

What’s new on the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 map?
The start of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 saw a number of map changes, which you can see below:
How to Reveal Named Locations and Landmarks on the Fortnite Map
Whenever a new named location is added to the Fortnite map, or one is significantly changed, it will turn grey, allowing you to easily identify the new area. There may even be a small gray spot for a noticeable new landmark on occasion. Fortnite newcomers, however, will find that their map is completely greyed out.
You will also receive a small amount of XP when you visit a named location or landmark for the first time.
To see the map in all its glory, you need to visit each of the named locations and all of the major landmarks, either on foot or by landing from the Battle Bus.
We recommend visiting named locations first, as this will narrow down the landmarks you need to visit to the little gray spots left on the map.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 is almost here! Before that, make sure you get all the remaining Battle Pass rewards you want, unlock the Indiana Jones skin (give yourself plenty of time to solve the secret door outside the main chamber in the Shuffled Shrines puzzle!), and make sure you you to spend those gold bars. Meanwhile, learn to expand your character collection and learn how to earn the Victory Umbrella and Victory Crowns.
Fortnite Map Named Locations List
At the start of each Fortnite season, we can usually expect to see a selection of new Named Locations. New named locations may even appear throughout a season!
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 saw five new Named Locations added to the map:
- Cloudy Condos
- Fort Jonesy
- saint of the herald
- shiny lagoon
- shimmering sanctuary
Aside from these new locations, there are 11 named locations returning in Chapter 3 Season 4:
- Chonker Motor Speedway
- Coney Crossroads
- greasy grove
- Logjam Junction
- Cave Rave
- tree of reality
- rock pinwheels
- Unstable trees
- sleeping sound
- Synapse station
- Tilted Towers
Fortnite landmarks explained
Landmarks in Fortnite are smaller locations spread across the map and usually contain either a small location or a notable object to explore. Sometimes they will be notable enough to warrant having a small gray spot on the map to fill in.
You’ll naturally come across landmarks just by exploring the map and, as with Named Locations, earn XP by finding them.
Part of the fun with landmarks is finding them randomly, but if you want to completely complete the map, we recommend visiting all of the named locations first. This will leave gray spots on the map wherever a notable landmark might be, making it much easier to locate them!
