We have the three best landing spots for high-kill games in Fortnite in January 2021.
The release of Chapter 2 Season 5 introduced a variety of map changes, weapons, and NPCs that have impacted the way Fortnite has been played. These changes influence where players drop, and more importantly, where you need to drop in order to get high-kills.
Best Landing Spots Fortnite January 2021: High-Kills
The days of 30 bombs are far and very few in between, but that does not mean Fortnite players should not be dropping into highly contested POIs and putting themselves in the best position to slay out. We have come up with the three best, and most consistent places to drop in on the Fortnite map to get high-kills.
1. Salty Towers
This is a classic. Salty Towers was introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 as a way to appease the Fortnite community who had been missing Tilted Towers. It also incorporated parts of Salty Springs, which was also a highly-contested drop spot when it was a POI in previous seasons.
Players dropping into Salty Towers can expect a decent amount of people landing Salty off the rip. Once you clear out Salty, there is plenty of mobility via the cars, crystals, or the water to rotate and continue to rack up the eliminations.
There are also two slurp trucks by the bridge next to Salty that can refresh your health and shield if you are running low.
2. Misty Meadows
Misty Meadows might be a head-scratcher to some, but when the Battle Bus comes across the lower half of the map or starts at the bottom and heads north, there will be a large number of Fortnite players dropping into this POI.
With its two sides of the town, it provides players with ample loot and space, which is why so many people drop in. The one thing to be cautious about when dropping into Misty is that there is an IO guard spawn that can really disrupt your high-kill game if they lock onto you.
Other than that, there are plenty of opportunities to fish to regain health and shield, and then rotate into Lazy Lake to earn more eliminations.
3. Lazy Lake
Lazy Lake is pretty highly-contested no matter where the Battle Bus goes. The different big buildings give off Tilted Tower vibes and there always seems to be chaos surrounding Lazy Lake. If you want to get high-kills, land on the building in center of Lazy and clear outwards. You are almost certain to leave there with five or six eliminations.
Plus, the waterfall and ample amount of cars allow you to quickly rotate to nearby POIs on the map to continue the masacre.
Honorable Mention: Pleasant Park
It would not be right to exclude Pleasant Park on this list. Pleasant is very streaky, and if the Battle Bus comes across the bottom of the map, players are likely to choose to land Salty over Pleasant. Nonetheless, if it stays over the northern part of the map, Pleasant can be quite chaotic.
So definitely don't rule out dropping Pleasant Park if you are thinking about shooting for high-kills.
