"Slappy Shores" gives players the ultimate drop spot for health and metal material

With metal seeming to be a bit scarce throughout the map, Slappy Shores provides the perfect place for those looking to gain metal material fast. Featuring a factory-style village, separated by a river, this new POI has quite the amount of loot and materials to offer.
With a factory located in the village that produces "Slap Juice", players can easily acquire fast shield when landing here. With metal placed all throughout the location, having enough to build with becomes a simple feat.

Beware though, this location may have its perks, but that also means quite a few teams may also plan to drop there. Always keep your guard up when landing at Slappy Shores.

"Faulty Splits": an essential drop spot for those looking to fight early

With only a select few locations on the map this season, a lot of players are flocking to just a few POIs. One of these is Faulty Splits.
Faulty Splits is a decently sized village located toward the middle of the map. With bowling alleys, bars and even a few small cabins above it, Faulty sits as one of the more prominent drop spots.

The location carries quite a bit of loot and materials for players to snag, making it a hot landing spot on the island. Be prepared to battle, as this spot is never lacking players.

Take on the Ageless Champion at "The Citadel", giving your team a chance at top-tier loot

Some landing spots may not be for the faint of heart. The Citadel, being in the North-Western corner of the map, offers an exhilarating experience for those willing to take it on.
With the Ageless Champion guarding the castle, you will have quite the battle ahead of you. The boss uses the new Ex-Calibur Rifle alongside the Shockwave Hammer when battling players. One hit from either of these weapons will take out a player.

Succeed in fighting the boss and you and your team will be rewarded with some of the best loot in the game.
Be wary when taking on this challenge. It will be easy to get third-partied by another team while attempting to battle the Ageless Champion.

Pick your spot carefully, and enjoy the secrets this new island has to offer

Whether or not you decide to land at any of our selected spots is on you. Make sure to still enjoy every aspect this map has to offer.
