The war between the IO and the Aliens has come to an end, only to begin a new one. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 has arrived, and the map looks a bit different this time around. New areas are now available to visit on the map, including the return of Shanty Town. So, where is it?

Shanty Town first appeared when the new island appeared, all the way back in Chapter 2, Season 1. It used to be the only location to find Big Chuggus, a character themed around the in-universe drink Slurp. It remains one of the least popular locations in the game, though it’s stood the test of time and is now a location for collectables.

Shanty Town isn’t a major location on the map, meaning that it’s not named unlike major areas. This area can be found going west of Slurpy Swamp, and it’s on a little circle peninsula. Just head to where all the shacks are — shanties, if you will. The game will notify the player when they’ve entered the area, and will award them XP if the area is newly discovered.

This minor area is pretty important now, especially since this is an area players will need to go to in order to find bottles of Ghoulish Green. These bottles will be important for customizing the new skin Toona Fish.

Chapter 2 Season 8 is now available to play, so jump in and face the cubes.
