Where To Find Extra PowerUps In Watopia

We recently published an article sharing Zwift’s hidden PowerUp “grant locations”. Then details for Tour of Watopia 2023 were released, and we learned that Zwifters would be receiving extra powerups at new grant locations during the Tour.

Yesterday Zwift released a minor game update, and we started hearing reports of new powerup grant locations in Watopia. After chatting with Zwift, we learned that the Tour of Watopia’s additional powerup grant locations are now in game, and will probably remain throughout the month of March.

Where are the new powerup grant locations? There are 13, indicated by arrows in the image below:

Here’s a list of Watopia’s new (and temporary) grant locations:

  • 2 on Fuego Flats: one at the first turnaround, and the second between the Oasis and Saddle Springs
  • 1 on Ocean Boulevard at the Sequoia Circle intersection
  • 1 just before the start of Hilly KOM Reverse
  • 3 on the Volcano KOM: one at the start, another at ~1.3km, and another at ~3km
  • 2 on Epic KOM: one at ~2.7km and another at ~6.8km
  • 4 on Alpe du Zwift: at turns 15, 8, 6, and 2

Note that the type of powerup indicated on the map above only applies to Tour of Watopia. If you are free riding or in an event, these grant locations will act like any other powerup banner on course.

For Ride Organizers

Zwift says if you’re organizing a ride in Watopia and don’t want participants to receive extra powerups you’ll need to move your event off of Watopia or contact Zwift so they can add a special tag to your event which blocks these extra powerup grants.

Thank you, Eric. I experienced the unexpected power-ups while riding with Coco on Tick Tock this morning. However, I received feathers or 10XP where your map shows Aero and Draft. So, perhaps the power-ups follow the same random pattern as the regular locations. Extra power-ups are welcome. I like the idea of feathers up AdZ and other climbs.

I also experienced the same, Feathers with Coco on Tick Tock. Was my first Coco Crew ride. Good Grief it was difficult to hang on those wheels but I did it for 30 minutes… The power ups helped for sure!

Yes, about every 500m on the Reverse Epic KOM, all Feathers.

Big Foot Hills was a good ride to pick these up today. You get the ones on Volcano Climb in both directions. I assume that’s true for all of them…?

In 2 events on tuesday and thursday I only received 10 point powerups all the time. No “wheel of fortune action”, only a pink + showed up and 10 points were given. Outside events it was a normal distribution of powerups.

I had the same experience, was confused to receive powerups in new locations and only got +10xp ones. That didn’t really affect anything so I shrugged and moved on but now I read this, will be interesting to see how if I get real powerups in a race this weekend πŸ™‚

Thank you Eric for clarifying this. My instinct was that this was a bug, so really helpful to update us. A course like “Out and Back Again” will be incredible to ride at the moment.

Did a Fondo ride yesterday and picked up a few of these new ones as it winded it’s way round Watapoia.
However the Alpe ones have always been there. Meant to post that on the other article. They are in the first concrete avalanche tunnel 4/5s of the way along it, under the crane with the suspended log, the final rock cut tunnel 2/3rds of the way along by a flashing road sign/barrier thing and one other place that I’ve suddenly forgotten (!)

I noticed these during the Chasing Strade Bianche on Saturday.
