Hot Spots have been a part of Fortnite for quite some time now. They had been removed from the game during Fortnite OG as they removed all the new features and went back to their old ways. Fortnite OG saw a record number of players coming to Fortnite so a lot of them might now know about all these new features that have been a part of the game beforehand. One of those items is Hot Spots and in this guide, we will talk about the locations where you can find them and how to use them in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1.
How to find the Hot Spots in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1
Hot Spots is one of the best additions that have been made in Fortnite and was first introduced during Chapter 4 Season 1. These are places where you can find more loot and in good quality than in other places. This is also why they are mostly crowded with other players and if you want to get your hands on good loot, you also need to be prepared to fight against several players quite early on in the match.
But if you are lucky you might also reach a Hot Spot that doesn’t have a lot of players at them. This is because there are several Hot Spots in a single match so players have more than enough options to choose from.
You’ll notice that many supply drones are flying around at these Hot Spots. You’ll need to shoot down these drones, which will award you a weapon and a healing item. The quantity of loot might not look like much but it can be quite crucial if you are surrounded by enemies right at the beginning of the match.
List of Hot Spots locations in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1
There are no specific Hot Spots locations in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1. The locations change during every other match and can be pointed out from other locations because the Hot Spot names are written in gold. This indicates that these locations will contain chests and also receive supply drops till the very end of the match and if you are low on loot you can choose to go to these places.
The supply drones and the chests at Hot Spots have the Ship It! Express company logo printed on them in Chapter 5 Season 1. You can either look in chests silently or take up a weapon and shoot down drones which will also carry the danger of revealing your presence to enemies nearby. These supply drones also have the probability of containing weapons of Legendary rarity but there’s no guarantee, so the choice is yours.
