Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 2's map has new locations in store. I mean, obviously. After all, few things in life are certain: Death, taxes, poorly written cliches, and a new Fortnite season bringing a couple of big changes to the battle royale map. With Season 2's Top Secret theme, pitting two factions of nefarious secret agents against one another, the map is filled with new bases for players to infiltrate or blast their way through.

Read on for a full rundown of each new location. Don't forget that we have guides where to find the new mythic weapons or loot-filled vaults.

The Shark

A large island located in the northwest corner of the map, conveniently shaped like a shark's gaping mouth. The Shark was converted from a relatively standard secret agent hideout into a maximum security prison facility, complete with a basketball court and lots of prison cells. The whole place is now swathed in the Ghost faction logo, too, and a separate building on its own little island appears to house a single, specially designed jail cell that some theorize is meant to hold Midas.

Mini-Boss: Skye.

The Rig

The Rig is, appropriately enough, a big oil rig just off the southwest coast. Guess it makes sense that it's out there to pick up the sludge from the Slurp factory. It's another fairly standard base, with a smattering of henchmen patrolling. While at the start of the season, the Rig was seemingly functional and whole, mid-way through the season, the whole thing was severely damaged. Most of the platforms that you previously could have just walked around on are gone, and the tower in the center looks like it was grated like string cheese.

Mini-boss: TNTina.

The Yacht

Deadpool has taken over Meowscle's yacht, and given it quite the makeover. You'll find Deadpool logos and scrawlings all over the place, including a Deadpool rendition of the famous "A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte" painting by Georges Surat in the bar.

The Agency

The home of the golden boy Midas, the Agency is another fairly standard-looking secret agent office space. Located on the island in the dead center of the map, you'll definitely need to cross some water to get to it, if you don't land on it directly. Don't be afraid to move in from the front portion of the base, as you'll find an easy phonebooth to disguise yourself in.

Mini-boss: Midas.

The Grotto

Imagine Blofeld from the James Bond series built a base in Fortnite and you've pretty much got an idea of what the Grotto is. I actually missed this on my first visit, but there's actually two missile silo openings built into the mountainside. The one you see in the picture above is the larger silo, while a slightly smaller opening rests a little higher up in the hill. There's also an entrance at the edge of the water, which will take you through a cave leading to the main area.

Mini-boss: Brutus.

Box Factory

Leave it to a cat like Meowscles to move into a box factory. After Deadpool took over the Yacht POI, Meowscles has moved into this other location, which is located up the hillside outside of Lazy Lake headed towards the mountain. The interior is nothing to scream about. It's just a lot of boxes you can hide in, one of which is necessary for a challenge, but otherwise it's just another building.

Mini-boss: Meowscles.
