Where is the loot island in Fortnite?

Loot Island is not a fixed location in Fortnite; instead, you must wait until the rift symbol appears on the map after several Storm Circles have passed. It took four storm circles for Loot Island to appear on our map.

This is what the Loot Island rift looks like on the map.

You will see a crack in the sky as you approach the symbol, which will eventually become Loot Island. There will be some zip lines to help you get to the floating island when it appears.

Once Loot Island replaces the rift, its symbol will change to a highlighted area on your map, like in the image below:

How to claim the capture point on the floating loot island in Fortnite

Once you have located the floating loot island during a match, you must use the zip line to reach the island and then search for its capture point.

Capture points are small circles around a long pole containing a flag. To claim a capture point in Fortnite, you must stay inside the circle around the flag until it is raised to the top of the pole, which takes around 45 seconds. The capture will take longer if you leave the circle, as the flag will begin to fall.

Once the flag is fully raised on Loot Island, loot will appear around it and you will have successfully claimed it.

On Loot Island, you can get the overclocked Mythic Pulse Rifle by claiming its capture point or opening the island’s vault.
