Creative mode in Fortnite gives players the opportunity to create the game of their dreams, and one of the most popular genres is Deathrun. There are loads to choose from, though, and it can be quite daunting figuring out where to start – so we’ve rounded up the best Deathrun map codes you can play in 2023.
Fortnite’s Creative mode has inspired players to create some amazing maps spanning a variety of genres ever since the mode was first introduced to the game in 2018. Since then players have been able to experience Gun Games, Hide and Seek, Zone Wars and, of course, Deathruns.
Deathrun maps are a great way to practice movement in Fortnite and provide a break from the typical battle royale action. Since traversal is an essential skill for surviving shootouts on the Island, Deathruns can be extremely useful if you want to improve your skills.
We’ve compiled a list of the very best Deathrun maps available for players in 2023 that you can check out below.

Ice Cream Deathrun: 2504-1001-5323
This Deathrun code map is a unique and colorful experience as every level is based on a different ice cream flavor. Up to three players can take on the map at the same time and race to the finish line – climbing to the top of ice creams, and dodging various dessert-inspired obstacles along the way.
The Grapple Glove Deathrun: 9496-9656-3332
Get to grips with Fortnite’s new Grapple Glove item in the latest deathrun map from creator Jaoikki, as you swing through various obstacles and attempt to avoid meeting an untimely end. There are more levels on the way soon, so check back regularly for more challenges.
21 Level Skyline Run: 3759-6687-0977
In this original Deathrun map from Jallidus, you’ll navigate spikes, fire, and stomach-churning drops as you work your way across the rooftops of a city skyline at night. It’s one of the most difficult Deathruns we’ve featured in this list, so be prepared to get eliminated quite a few times before you complete it.
New Movement Martex Deathrun: 4717-8702-3098
This Deathrun code features all of the movement mechanics that were introduced in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, and is a great method to familiarize yourself with them. Additionally, with parkour being one of the prime attractions of this map, you are guaranteed to have a blast while practicing and honing your skills. This mode can be played with up to 16 players in the same lobby.
Default Slide Deathrun: 1384-9725-0679
Looking for some slip-and-slide fun? This Chapter 3 map from the aptly-named creator KKSlider features a bunch of running, jumping, and sliding action as you attempt to make it to the end of the course. You’ll need razor-sharp reactions and perfect timing to avoid falling to your doom.
100 Level Default Deathrun: 4056-1695-2605
With an additional level hidden away throughout its twisting corridors, this default Fortnite Deathrun code map from creator FxxD1 is that much harder to complete. You’ll need to race against a maximum of 19 other players as you try to navigate its deadly corridors, survive, and make it to the end.
Spy Games Deathrun: 6302-2233-2728
This difficult, Parkour-based Deathrun from FortniteCreativeTutorials changes things up slightly, allowing you to choose the Shadow or Ghost allegiance as you play with up to 8 spies in a game peppered with unique traps. What’s more, if one player completes the level, everyone else is able to zip forward and skip it, helping to seemingly keep everyone on a relatively even playing field throughout.
Mixed Lava Lake Deathrun: 3229-6168-3908
If you ever played ‘the floor is lava’ when you were younger, you’ll know exactly what to expect from this DHN-created deathrun map – avoid the lava and stay on the platforms. There are 50 levels to complete and up to 30 players can take part at any one time, which is sure to lead to some chaotic experiences.
Frosty Farm Deathrun: 3114-9806-2406
The Holiday season is here, and Frosty Farm from creator fhsupport can help to get your fill of festive cheer. As you navigate through the map, collecting 20 presents to unlock a bonus level, you can somewhat relax and take in the atmosphere with this easy difficulty Deathrun.
Ghost Train Deathrun: 2374-3274-1094
If you’re sad about the end of spooky season and are looking for a Deathrun course to tide you over until next Halloween, look no further than this horror-themed Ghost Train map. It’s an easy difficulty Deathrun, so you can focus on enjoying the ghoulish surroundings and great attention-to-detail.
Bounce Out Obstacle Course: 0356-4964-5824
Ever dreamed of having a go on those wacky obstacle courses you see on weekend TV? Well, this might be the closest you’ll get! Another imaginative Fortnite course from veteran creator eatyoushay, the goal of this Deathrun code is to make your way through obstacles and beat your friends to the finish line without falling into the water.
Tumble Lads: 5361-9496-2479
There have been plenty of Fall Guys imitators in Fortnite Creative, but this one really takes the cake. There are eight minigames to run (or tumble) through, all of them based on levels from the popular game Fall Guys, like Hex-A-Gone. It’s incredibly fun, and one of the best-looking Fortnite maps we’ve ever seen.
Pirate Jonesy’s Deathrun: 7452-9966-3879
This pirate-themed Deathrun from FCHQ features 10 incredibly difficult levels, and if you complete them all, you’ll get the chance to encounter Pirate Jonesy himself in a boss fight. It took eight builders a total of three weeks to create this map, and it shows, as the amount of detail on display here is incredible. It might even be the best Deathrun out there.
More Wacky Ways To Die: 9650-8149-3607
One of the most imaginative maps on this list is More Wacky Ways To Die, the latest installment from creator subcloning that offers up 15 levels to work your way through, with each one having a crazier way of dying than the last. Expect dinosaurs, giant toys, and bank heists.
Fishstick’s Adventure Deathrun: 0268-5437-7911
This incredibly creative map merges the Deathrun genre with a fully-developed Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired adventure game, as players attempt to collect fish while avoiding dangerous obstacles like spikes and poison darts. Locations to explore include a beachside town, tropical islands, and a pirate ship.
Duo Disco Deathrun: 7662-4632-7482
You’ll need to grab a friend to complete this epic Fortnite Deathrun map from creator regirom. Two players must master their coordination skills and timing to help each other get through the disco light-filled course, pressing switches to raise platforms and avoiding forcefield walls. Frustrating? Yes. Fun? 100%.
100 Level Rainbow Deathrun: 0388-5756-0977
This creation from Meep is a top-tier Fortnite Deathrun. You’ll have to avoid insta-death forcefields, make treacherous (and well-timed) jumps, and shoot targets to make floating platforms appear. The stages are described as being “easy to medium” difficulty, but good luck completing them all!
Summer Splash Deathrun Race: 3958-2152-5837
This 25-level Summer Splash map adds a whole new element to the Deathrun experience, as you’ll be competing against up to 15 other players. Not only will you have to make your way through a series of nautical-themed obstacles, but you’ll also need to collect coins and beat your opponents to the finish line. It’s hectic and a whole lot of fun.
Relativity Deathrun: 7024-4001-0960
Relativity pitches itself as being unlike any other Deathrun in Fortnite Creative, and it certainly delivers on that front. This stylish black-and-white map from creator absurdite constantly keeps you on your toes and offers plenty of surprises as you play through its mind-bending puzzles. Reaching the finish line is difficult enough as it is, but with a world record to beat, you could be here for hours.
Rockets vs Cars: 0952-5252-2978
This interesting take on the Deathrun genre splits players into two sides: rockets and cars. The Rockets must try to get through a devilishly difficult Deathrun course and blow up the Cars, while the Cars must do their best to run down the Rockets. It’s absolutely hectic and adds a fresh spin on the Deathrun format, especially with the option to play 12 vs 12.
The 1 Minute Deathrun: 3009-5833-7847
Another Fortnite map that offers something unique is The 1 Minute Deathrun from creator fhsupport. It’s set in a lush outdoor landscape, but you won’t have time to appreciate the design as you’ve only got one minute to complete the whole course. It’s a big challenge, but it is possible. Prepare for many, many failures.
Cizzorz Deathrun 3.0: 4043-5793-6999
No Fortnite Deathrun list would be complete without an entry from creator cizzorz, who has become well-known for his brilliant maps that offer a real challenge. Cizzorz Deathrun 3.0 is our favorite out of the collection, and it’s become one of the most popular Fortnite Deathrun maps of all time – so much so that there was even a competition to win actual prize money by competing on the course.
Rainbow Runners: 9654-3764-4414
Don’t let the colorful nature of Rainbow Runners fool you, this is a devilishly difficult Deathrun course that requires you to race, fly, and shoot your way through 10 unique levels as fast as possible. The simple and bold visual style from creator snownymous is a treat for the eyes.
The Void: 7373-1875-6620
Love assault courses? Then this map is for you. Based on the hit UK game show The Void, this map features 20 stylish and fiendishly difficult levels that will really put your Deathrun skills to the test.
Athletic Deathrun: 2723-5571-8409
This impressive Fortnite Deathrun map code puts players in the shoes of an athlete, with 11 different athletic events to take part in. Up to 32 players can join in, or you can take it on solo. You’re also able to save your progress, which should make it a little less rage-inducing when you inevitably fail.
Curse of the Cuddle Bears: 8401-6899-4910
This map from SkylarGem blends adventure and horror with classic Deathrun features for a totally creepy experience. Players must fight to “discover the dark truth” of the Tedi: Teddies of the Future factory, where something strange is happening. We recommend wearing the Cuddle Team Leader skin to truly immerse yourself in this map.
Jesgran’s Deathrun 2.0: 1103-0256-3362
After the success of their first map, creator Jesgran spent 400 hours making Jesgran’s Deathrun 2.0 and it was so worth it. You’ll feel like you’ve walked into a movie set with the crazy amount of detail on display here. It’s not just the classic spikes and drops you’ll be avoiding, as there are zombies and lava and plenty of other obstacles to traverse. Fortunately, you’ll have the help of tools like the Plunger and the Baller Vehicle to succeed.
500 Level Default Deathrun: 2223-7856-2968
If you’re the ultimate Deathrun fan, this might be the map for you. With a whopping 500 levels to get through, you’ll have hours of fun (or frustration) ahead of you. The map’s creator FxxD1 describes it as ‘easy’ so it shouldn’t give you too much of a headache, but add up to 32 players to the mix and things can get very competitive.
