Welcome to a new series here on Forever Fortnite where we will be taking a closer look at each named location in Battle Royale and explaining why you should land there. Are you feeling “Lucky?”

Lucky Landing is another edge-of-the-map location that often gets overlooked based on the battle bus travel path. That being said, it’s a great drop if you want to stock up on weapons (and just about nothing else).

Lucky Landing comes with a few extra buildings in the surrounding area, including a large shrine to the Northeast and a bridge with loot on it to the Northwest. Be sure to hit either of these locations as you leave Lucky.

Here is the run down on Lucky Landing, the best spot you never go to.

Why it is good to drop Lucky Landing

The loot. Lucky Landing is large enough that it generally holds a decent haul of loot. The back building with the open-air windows usually has the most loot as each floor has several weapons and ammo boxes scattered throughout.

There are enough chests in Lucky for a full squad and usually everyone ends up leaving the area with at least one or two epic weapons each. The surrounding area is generally safe to travel through as well, with cover provided from the rolling hills.

If you are lucky, Lucky will provide you with an epic or legendary vending machine spawn. The problem here is finding enough materials to use it.

Why it is bad to drop Lucky Landing

There isn’t much for materials at Lucky. There are trees and stone surrounding the area, but not enough to prep a full squad. If you are lucky enough to be here alone in a solo or duo match, chances are you’ll be just fine.

Lucky is located as far south as the map gets, which means it can occasionally be a marathon to get to the storm circle. There are a couple of rifts that sometimes form in the area, but you won’t find an ATK out here.

Depending on the battle bus route, Lucky Landing can be pretty busy at times as well. It’s an annoying drop spot to navigate if there are multiple people/squads in the area.

Where are the chest spawns?

Most of the buildings at Lucky Landing spawn chests. There are also usually two or three in the large shrine just outside of town and one always in the giant tree in the middle of the square at the center of town.

Here is a map of all of the chest spawns at Lucky Landing.

Overall grade for Lucky Landing

Lucky Landing is a prime drop location. Given it’s location on the southern coast, it’s often left alone. There is enough loot for a squad and if you are a diligent material gatherer, you’ll break every single piece of furniture in every house while looting to gather a respectable amount of wood.

The advantages of Lucky Landing outweigh the disadvantages but the location is what drops its grade from the elite locations such as Tilted Towers and Pleasant Park. Still, Lucky is definitely worth a drop every once-in-a-while.

Grade: B
