How to Claim Fortnite Capture Points – Chapter 4 Season 1

To claim one of the 9 Fortnite Capture Points is the easy part. Stopping other players capturing it before you can be slightly harder. You will need to drop in close to one of the locations, grab some weapons and shields and prepare for a battle right away. You may get lucky and drop alone if the Capture Point is far from the Battle Bus. If not, prepare to defend yourself.

Once the area is safe, proceed to the Capture Point and stand within the circled area on the floor. Doing so will sound an alarm and the flags around the centre post will start to raise. It’s kind of like “Capture the Flag”  or “Capture the Base” style games.

If you are attacked while capturing the flag and have to leave the circle the progress of the flag will stop. However, it won’t be lost and you or another player can continue the capture once returning to the circle.

Once the flags reach the top of the post you have captured the area and you will receive some gold, loot and XP.

What are Fortnite Capture Points?

The Fortnite Capture Points are located at each of the named hotspots on the island. Each location has its own Post and flag to raise, so you can complete 2-3+ Captures in each Battle for maximin loot, gold and XP.

There will be a ring on the floor around the capture point that you will need to stand it to make the capture. Once captured, your chosen banner will appear on the flag for all to see.
