What are the red and blue lines on the Fortnite map in Season 2?

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is underway and the new red and blue lines scattered all over the map can be quite confusing. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a detailed explanation of these rules and how you can use them to your advantage.

Fortnite Season 2 marks the return of Doctor Slone and the IO to the island, having previously disappeared during Chapter 3 Season 1, with the familiar enemy returning once again to face the Seven.

As a result, the Fortnite Season 2 map is marked all over with red and blue lines. These lines denote different areas for the two factions, and each has its own advantages to travel through. That said, let’s dive in and take a look at the special perks each area has to offer in the game.

The IO controls the red parts of the island while the Seven try to take it from them.

Red lines on the map in Fortnite Season 2

The red lines on the map of Fortnite Season 2 denote territories controlled by the IO† You can see from the map above that the Imagined Order controls almost all the central regions of the island.

However, there are certain advantages to going to these locations. In these areas you will find many IO vehicles spread out to ride alongside powerful IO weapons to help you claim that Victory Royale. Be sure to keep an eye on the horizon like any other hostile NPCs found here will stop at nothing to eliminate you.

Unlike the hostile environment of the IO, regions highlighted in blue are much safer, because they are controlled by the Seven† Besides being the only region where players can find Battle Buses on the map once added, you will also find friendly NPCs that you can interact with to exchange and purchase items.

That said, most of the blue regions on the map are on the edge of the island – so you’ll need to pay close attention as the storm gets closer and you’re forced to head inland.
