As has been the case with the weekly updates in Fortnite, the recent v6.30 patch has introduced some changes to the map.

Several areas of the map, most notably Tilted Towers, Pleasant Park, and Wailing Woods, have all seen changes to certain parts.

This week’s changes are neither as numerous or vast as last week’s v6.22 update, which implemented significant aesthetic modifications to several prominent locations on the map, as well as took down all of the Halloween decorations that were there for the Fortnitemares event.

These weekly changes are part of an overall effort on the part of Epic Games to keep the gaming experience fresh and fun, and it ensures that players can’t get tired of playing on the same old map week after week.

The central building in Tilted Towers that was destroyed by Kevin the Cube towards the end of the previous season is now in the process of being reconstructed. 

This is not the first time this building has been destroyed and reconstructed; the meteor that crashed into the map in Season 4 heavily damaged this structure, which led to a long renovation that went several weeks into the Season.


The expansive basement bunker that is located under Wailing Woods now includes two-way portals at each of the four large pipes that protrude from the walls.

A video showing these new portals in action can be seen HERE.

There is a strong rivalry between the Beef Boss and Tomatohead characters in Fortnite, as well as their respective food businesses Durrr Burger and Pizza Pit.

Food trucks representing the two restaurants have been moved to behind the football field in Pleasant Park, and sit across each other in close proximity. The storyline continues!


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
