Where to Find the Underground Mine in Fortnite 2.2.0 (1.35)

Can't find your way into the underground mine on the new map in Fortnite? Here's a quick guide for patch 2.2.0 (1.35) to help you out.

The new Fortnite 2.2.0 update (1.35) has arrived with a few significant changes, including 10 new locations for the game's Battle Royale map. Fortnite always lacked an urban setting, but with the new update, you'll not only find a ton of new areas -- like the underground mine -- but also areas like Tilted Towers, a whole new urban center full of tall buildings and plenty of close-quarters fighting. 

A few other exotic locations make appearances, too, such as Haunted Hills and Junk Junction. And based off of what we've played of the new Fortnite update, they look amazing. However, the most exciting new area in the 2.2.0 patch is probably Shifty Shafts -- something many players are most interested in.

If you're one of those thrill seekers who wants to know how to enter the new underground mine in Fortnite's new area, then follow this quick guide.

Finding the Underground Mine in Fortnite 2.2.0

After Tilted Towers, Shifty Shafts is the best location on Fortnite's new map due to the amount and quality of loot that can be found in the area's underground mine. But how do you get to the underground mine?

When you arrive at Shifty Shafts, located in the southwestern part of the 2.2.0 map, you need to move to the spot indicated on the screenshot above. This is where you will find the entrance to the underground mine. The mine is pretty huge, so be sure to take your time and explore every corner -- you never know what you might find inside.

As you descend into the underground mine, pay special attention to the secret walls hidden along the path -- they can be broken. Sometimes, you'll find a chest inside -- or just simply good loot lying around. You'll also find all sorts of weapons, from shotguns to assault rifles to ammo and other useful items.

Obviously, be careful when you approach Shifty Shafts -- and other areas such as Tilted Towers -- as the location is already extremely hot, and many players go there to find loot right off the bat. In any case, it's a high-risk/high-reward location, so it's definitely worth it.
