The Fortnite map has undergone a makeover in various areas following the the V6.22 update, as Halloween decorations make way for what’s to come, and special NFL related changes.

Epic Games have said previously that before they make a new map, they will focus on updating the current map, keeping it fresh and in the best possible state in terms of balance.

In doing so, changes are often made after each regular update, and the V6.22 update on November 5 has changed a number of spots in all corners of the map.

With Fortnitemares coming to a close with an incredible live event, it was time for all the Halloween decorations to go, including the Halloween shop at Retail Row, which has now been boarded up.

The Halloween decorations from Fatal Fields have also been taken down, returning the are to its previous state.

The Durrr Burger restaurant, located in Greasy Grove, was already on the decline, and now is almost entirely closed down, complete with boarded up windows.

However, Greasy Grove residents can still get their hands on some fast food, as two new vans have appeared, one representing Durrr Burger, and the other a new rival – ‘Pizza Pit’.

The commercial changes don’t stop there either, as a new Keyboard Kings store has opened up in Paradise Palms, and the ‘NOMS’ store is also back in business.

Finally, the biggest and most obvious change spotted so far is the complete overhaul of the Soccer Field at Pleasant park.

Now, tying in with the recent NFL deal with Fortnite, the Soccer Field has changed into an American Football field.

Just like the Soccer field, which also came with Soccer skins available in the store, you will be able to rock one of the new NFL skins on this field.

Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
