Epic Games decided to give some POIs in the game a nice little overhaul with the Fortnite v17.00 update.
If you've been playing Fortnite for a while now, I don't need to tell you the importance of landing at a loot rich POI. If you're new to the game, the choice of landing spot affects your chances of achieving that "Victory Royale".
We're close to the middle of the season. Now would be a nice time to take a call on the best landing spots in Fortnite.

Best landing spots in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7
#1 Slurpy Swamps
This is probably my most favorite place in the game. You could also regard it as the best landing spot in Fortnite. If you're in this area, you needn't worry about stocking on slurp jars. All you need to do is break the slurp barrels that you find here, and you're good to go.
Alternatively, you could also choose to stand in the waters that are close to this place and fill up your shields!
But beware, people usually love swarming into this place, especially during the early game stages. So be careful, and don't forget to watch your six!
#2 Corny Complex
For the first time in the past couple of seasons, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 has no central POI. Although Corny Complex is close to the centre of the map, it's a place people don't mindlessly drop into. At least not yet.
That being said, since this place is almost in the center of the map, you needn't worry about the storm circle too much. However, you'll see more gunfights.
#3 Dirty Docks
This place is a personal favorite. I prefer landing at this spot because it's a treasure trove of building materials. It has a decent amount of loot too. You won't walk out of this place empty handed, that I can guarantee.
Moreover, Dirty Docks has it's own Weapon-O-Matic machine. You can purchase weapons from this stall, in exchange for gold.
#4 Holly Hatchery
This POI is being overrun by aliens at this point of time. Not only does it have those weird low gravity zones, it also has other non-friendly alien NPCs. Not a very nice place to land, I know.
But this place is rich in loot. Moreover, you'll be able to grab yourself an alien nanite too! These occur commonly within the alien biomes as floor loot. You could also get one or two by opening chests.
You can kill those alien trespassers and get yourself a brand new copy of the Kymera Ray Gun. And finally, you can also find alien parasites here.
Sounds like a complete win win to me!
#5 Believer Beach
Tall buildings, a beach and a lot of open seas. Sounds so pleasant right? Well it's not that pleasant anymore. This place is swarming with enemy loopers in almost every match.
But then again, this place is extremely rich in the loot that it has to offer. Every building has at least one chest. Other than that, you've got a lot of floor loot that you can get your hands on.
There are a lot of cars as well that you can use to escape out of this area if it gets too hot.
These are the 5 best landing spots in Fortnite. Although where I would choose to land would depend a lot on the path that the battle bus takes, but these still are my favorites.
