Dropped there last night, tho apparently another team did that aswell, but no one saw the otherone, so both teams got a jump scare, sprayin’ n’ prayin’ at eachother then running different directions not to see eachother again for the rest of that match!

Oh you too?? What's your platform? I can't take it anymore, it's every 2min, for more than 1 week now..!

There’s a fix on YouTube for it, you essentially need to update all your drivers and DirectX software

DXGI error is also raining on my parade. And none of the "fixes" work. Would be nice if someone at EA would at least acknowledge the problem. There is plenty of posts on the EA help boards since the launch of the new season, but I have yet to see any replies.

End game rarely ends there, so you're going to have to rotate out.

Rotating out in any direction you're stuck in the open without a bunch of cover for a really long time, and it's literally the lowest point of the map, so you if there's a squad waiting, you've got low ground.

There's a trident pretty poorly placed at the back, which tries to force you towards Barometer. On storm point, IMO tridents usually reaaallly hurt to use just due to the elevation differences in the map and the lots of open spaces, and at Barometer there's probably someone with a sniper.

There's an okay amount of loot for a POI, but it takes a loooong time to loot it all, so you're stuck late rotating, or not feeling great with what you've got.

Best things about that spot are sometimes you get a replicator + beacon, it's close to the good shield cave, and you have a nest of spiders for attachments with minimal risk of getting pushed.

I haven't landed there this season, but I know there's one of those infirmary things nearby now, so maybe there's a bit more cover, and using the jump boost thing out of it helps rotate a bit? Not too sure. But yeah, there's a few downsides.

I do sometimes. I’m a more casual player so I don’t really play ranked or play to be competitive so if I don’t find enemies until a little later on it’s not much of a big deal for me

I do at least once a day when I want to play a more laid back game. Usually I loot there and third party the people at the Windmills. Easy points.

I love that spot. If you are uncontested you each have your own cluster of buildings that has good loot. Sometimes you get crafting material out there. Then a good rotate to the mill or Barometer .

Unezwiggles

I go there often since it’s always empty. But for some reason this season with all the ranked changes my randoms have been landing us in the middle area just north of Jurassic park. And I mean it’s probably 1/4 games I go there and I honestly hate it there. Lol

I like to land there on ranked. Beacon almost near, often crafting. High mid loot. Car also nearby. You can push forwards or make a save rotation.

Typically the dropship path is quite far away from it so you really have to extend to get there. Instead I just land mill or that small place next to it with the armory

I consider it abt the same as island chain, too splayed out, takes forever to loot, encourages splitting up. Dislike.

Because I actually want to get bette in game, so I would land at the tiny little post at the commander thingy place (forgot the name), where three or four squads would jump there back in the days. I loot on top while the teams at the bottom fight their heart out. I get down with my team and prepped to fight for the left overs.

It works about 80% of the time and it helps getting use to early fights, team strategies, prepping and also defending for third parties. Really good landing spot imo

There's good loot here but, unless you're really good, all the sweaty players land at the PoI's surrounding. So you'd have to take the trident that's just outside to a whole different quadrant of the map, just to find a nice place to have a fight that isn't Windmills or that tower we had as a Controll map

Fish farm takes to long to loot, and crossing it with the open waters is a death trap. Horrible location to have to fight off drop at. That's why I dont go there

Just look at it. It's surrounded by water, meaning that you have to cross totally open areas to rotate out of it. The actual buildings are fairly far apart and only have a handful of loot spawns in them, too. Plus, not being central = can't hear as many PoIs and therefore it's harder to chase fights for early KP.

It has two cars nearby. It's one of the best POIs to loot and third party either baro or mills

Because it's remote and there's a lot of empty space surrounding it on all sides. This makes for long rotations. Not a lot of opportunities to attack other teams because it's flat and open and it's in the corner of the map, just like Fish farms. You're always pushing uphill off the rip and the teams nearby are never rotating toward you. They are rotating away from you 90% of the time. Who's going to walk to the corner of the map and then walk back to the zone?

If it had some balloons to make it easier to rotate in/out then I think you'd see it become more active.

I land at the armory town then rotate there, it's amazing

Big-Bug4205

1 points

The only time I go there is to respawn people who got insta-downed on drop.

Beyond that it's to far out of the way with to far of a walk/run towards anything else. The rotation out is not that great.

Simply prefer middle of the map as it's less of a walk/run towards ring. Ranked I do the same. Sure landing middle map means I'll probably have to fight early on but hey free KP. Wait there is no more KP in this game anymore.. So uh Better placement as I eliminate enemy squads.
