The third major update, Fortnite has made some significant map changes, as the build up to Season 8 begins.

Some of the most popular named locations, including Tilted Towers, have experienced a makeover of sorts.


Pleasant Park has had some serious attention, as preparations are made for the Marshmello ‘Festivus’ event which is set to go down on February 2.

Fortnite Map Changes – V7.30 Update

Retail Row

Shifting from Greasy Grove to Retail Row, Durrr Burger has had a change of location. Maybe the owners think the foot traffic will be improved at the Row?

Tilted Towers

The construction on one of the central buildings of Fortnite’s city locale has finally completed after what feels like an age.

Whether it survives the earthquake that is rumored to end Season 7 is another matter.

Pleasant Park

The aforementioned Marshmello Festivus event is going down at Pleasant Park on February 2, so there has been some preparations put in place. The trucks carrying stage equipment has arrived on the center of field to get things set up.

Players will also need to make their own preparations, by completing the Festivus challenges.

Polar Peak

This final map change was an expected one, as enough ice has now melted in the dungeon of Polar Peak that the prisoner – now confirmed to be the Snowfall skin – has escaped.

Epic Games / @LootLakeBRThe Prisoner is finally free.

The V7.30 patch notes outline all the changes to weapons and items, as numerous favorites have been sent to the vault, with the new chiller grenade added.

There’s also been a plethora of leaks, including all new skins and cosmetics that are currently unreleased.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
