Fortnite Chapter 2 is well underway and RealSport wants to give you the best possible chances of gaining that almighty first win on the new map!

RealSport will depict all there is to know when it comes to picking a place to land and what loot to pick up in Fortnite Chapter 2.

However, you may be left wondering what does this mean for the future of new items in Chapter 2! It is likely that we as a community will see the return of some of the items that are in the list above as the weeks and seasons go by.

With limited ways to move around the map, we need the fan favourite Launch Pad back in our Battle Royale lives.

Hot or Drop

With so many weapons and items being vaulted and introduced to us just only a week ago, what weapons should you carry and which weapons should you drop?

The perfect loadout should comprise:



SLOT 2 - Shotgun


SLOT 4 - Healing

SLOT 5 - Sniper/ Rocket Launcher/ Healing

During a game of Fortnite this is the bog standard class setup that every player should be aiming towards. We understand that this may not always be possible... but if the Fortnite Gods are on your side, then this set up shouldn't be too difficult to achieve.

Here are all the weapons available in the Chapter 2 loot pool:
