For the current version, please see Boney Burbs.

Salty Springs was a small residential area in the middle of the Battle Royale Map. It consists majorly of residential houses, most with attics that contain chests. Some games it can be highly populated, and others it can be deserted, which makes this quite risky - however, loot tends to be above average. There is always good loot at Salty because many players tend to go here.

Until Chapter 2: Season 5, Salty Springs was one of the four locations that has been untouched since the beginning of Fortnite: Battle Royale, surviving the destruction of the Athena map and reappearing on the new Apollo map in Chapter 2. In Chapter 2: Season 5, Salty Springs was merged with the returning Tilted Towers to create Salty Towers.

Notes

  • There is a watchtower to the east that can contain chests and serves as a good lookout point.
  • In the northern part of Salty Springs is a blue house that contains an underground bunker.

The bunker under the blue house was removed at the start of Chapter 2, it is very unlikely it will be added back due to the fact that this was part of the Season 4 Lore.

Trivia

  • Salty Springs, along with Pleasant Park and Retail Row have been around since the beginning of Fortnite, being the oldest POIs in Fortnite history. It is also the only POI to be in every season until Chapter 2: Season 6.
