Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 made some substantial changes to the map, flooding it with water and drowning lots of of your favorite areas under a deep sea. It also changed up lots of the existing called locations and landmarks and presented plenty of new ones. One of the new addition is a secret loot boat that moves around in between matches.
The secret loot boat does not have a set location, and it does not show up on the map, so how are you expected to find it? Honestly, you just need to look for it. The boat will just spawn on the borders of the map, out in the sea. It will not spawn anywhere in the various lakes, rivers, and streams that now make up a lot of the map.
When you spawn in the battle bus, scan the area around you to see if you can identify it. It will look exactly like it does in the main image for this post. It will end up being much easier to area as you get accustomed to the new layout of the map. If you can’t see it, then the best thing to do is head for a Choppa and check out the far side of the map, unless you want to wait for the Battle Bus to travel to the end of the path and jump out at the lastsecond This does not constantly help, as the boat can still be on one of the sides of the map that the bus does not cross.
If you do see the boat extremely close to the start of the Battle Bus path, it can be much better to not go for it. If adequate people see it, they will all want to head there, and it ends up being a hazardous murder scene. Since you can get truly well looted up there, everybody desires to get the secret loot boat. It has numerous chests, ammunition boxes, consumables, and Slurp barrels to get some early shields.
The main thing you will need to do is just check the outer reaches of the map on each of the island’s coasts, and make sure you do it early because when the storm arrives that secret loot boat is a lost cause.
