Probably one of the most frequented areas in World's Edge, Fragment East and West covers a large area of buildings chock-full of loot. Many of these structures have four floors or more and usually, the quality of loot is fairly decent!

This is a pretty huge area and can give ample opportunities to battle some other squads or find high-tier loot.

If you're not a fan of early fights, this spot may not be for you. There's always a possibility you may not run into someone, but the likelihood of that is fairly low.

Skyhook

Skyhook is probably my go-to landing spot in World's Edge, it's never lacking in loot and tends to be fairly quiet regarding other teams. It's a great area for cover too with plenty of buildings to enter or hide behind, as well as that there's plenty of opportunity for ambushes, escape routes, and overall it's probably one of the most balanced landing spots.

This location is likely the most fun you can have early game - if you survive. Here you will be tested, three times, expect to mow down Prowlers before they get their claws on you. Each time you complete a level a small door will open and voila, loot!

Playing as Bloodhound you can also create weapons from the holograms found here.

The newest addition to Olympus, Icarus, is an infected ship filled with high-tier loot. This area is a great spot to land as long as there aren't too many other squads doing the same.

Aside from the incredible amount of loot scattered here, there's also a keycard that can be found which will unlock the bridge, otherwise known as a Loot Vault, now get ready to spam E if you're solo queueing.

Fight Night

Initially, when Fight Night came to the map it was a major hotspot and going there usually meant certain death, since then its quietened down and you may even end up the only squad there.

Inside the ring players will only be able to use melee attacks, you'll find a couple of Cargo Bots here full of some great loot and even sometimes purple backpacks!

This spot is brilliant as a starter point too due to the fact there are so many exits, all leading to major points of interest.

Velvet Oasis

Velvet Oasis can be a great spot for players to initially land in, there's a fair amount of gold loot, a lot of which can be found within the Oasis Café underground, loot heaven but you could become victim to third partying.

Aside from the loot, Velvet Oasis is fairly close to the centre of the map so you won't need to stock up on health packs in case you get caught in the ring.

Water Treatment is a large area that allows for opportunities to battle it out fairly early on, there are plenty of areas to hide and heal up too.

Aside from the optimal gun fight conditions, there's some brilliant loot too, not only inside the main building but also to the buildings a short run to the east and west.

Runoff

Runoff was quite a manic drop zone in earlier seasons though as time has passed fewer players choose here to start out.

There's a fairly sizeable amount of loot though it is spread across multiple rooms and buildings, so keep an eye out in case another squad try to ambush you!

You'll also be nearby Slum Lakes, mentioned below which is a great spot and is usually fairly quiet.

If you like the atmosphere of Skull Town but don't feel like being downed instantly then Slum Lakes may be an option for you. Usually, you'll bump into another squad or two but by then you should at least have a decent gun to take them head-on.

There's also a jump tower right next to the lakes, meaning you can get out of a sticky situation if the ring is closing in.

The majority of the above locations will likely stay the same although some areas in World's Edge will be changing. According to dataminer, Shrugtal, a few POIs will be revamped in Season 10 including Countdown, Sorting Factory and Refinery.

The Season 10 map changes should be refreshing and switch things up, no doubt these areas will become hot spots though.
