What Makes an Area Dangerous?

As tempting as it is to land where all of the action is, you put yourself in danger of getting eliminated early in the game.

Scenarios You Might Face

Here are the likely outcomes of landing in a dangerous area:

  • No time to prepare before encountering enemies.
  • High chance of dying from battle.
  • Getting caught in the Storm.

Examples of Dangerous Landing Areas

High Population Areas

More people means more competition and combat will be unavoidable. Urban areas such as Tilted Towers and Retail Row are favorite landing spots so are best avoided.

Areas Featured in Challenges

Some areas on the map are featured in Challenges, particularly the Battle Pass Challenges. Featured areas for the current week tend to be hot zones in terms of encounter rate.

Open Areas

Open areas provide little or no cover for you to hide in. These make you a prime target for enemy players, especially ones who have sniper rifles.

Extreme Edges of the Map

Landing on the extreme edges of the map tends to be a gamble. If you are unlucky, you may end up getting caught it the Storm while running toward the safety of the eye.
