Fortnite loot tier list is usually based on preference, as there are quite a few good locations to land. The key is to find places to land that aren't too hot, as dealing with a lot of enemies up front slows looting time.
As with any new season, new locations are always hotly contested. Basically, avoid The Shark, The Rig, The Yacht, The Agency, and The Grotto.
Fortnite Loot Tier List: Best Places to Drop for Loot in Chapter 2, Season 2
Landing and looting some of the classic spots in Chapter 2 are easy targets.
5. Craggy Cliffs
While it's far up north and can make some matches a marathon, the place has great loot and isn't as highly contested as it used to be. Land here and get ready to head to the circle.
4. Retail Row
While it's still a popular spot from the first map, Retail Row has a lot of loot, It's going to be the most contested of the list, but if you can survive, you'll usually be in the circle with a lot of loot.
3. Slurpy Swamp
While actually weapons may be a little bit of a problem here, your team will have full shields heading out of this location. Play smart, work as a team, and you'll have a great starting location.
2. Frenzy Farm
While it's the worst of the list for loot, it's centralized, meaning you'll have a lot of circles or not have to run far, and it's usually uncontested. You may be a little bit loot starved, but you'll be a live and ready to move toward the circle or rotate to your next spot.
1. Steamy Stacks
One of the most under-appreciated spots, Steamy Stacks has great loot and is barely contested. It is toward the edge of the map, so you may be caught running a lot, but if you want loot and no early fights, land at Steamy Stacks.
