The v7.20 update in Fortnite Battle Royale has been the biggest of Season 7 so far and has introduced some noticeable changes to the map. 

Immediately after v7.20 went live on January 15, players noticed that there were several significant changes made to certain locations on the map like Polar Peak, Tilted Towers, Paradise Palms, and more. 

The map has been constantly evolving since the start of Season 7, although there hadn’t been any major changes made over the past few weeks as there hadn’t been any game updates over the holiday period. 

Snow Biome

An iceberg located on the snowy corner of the map began rapidly decreasing in health once the update went live, and it eventually melted and cracked to reveal a secret bunker door.

Much like its counterpart that’s been in Wailing Woods for a while now, this bunker door is sealed and indestructible, so there is no way to get inside. 

Polar Peak

Polar Peak has seen a host of changes since it was first added to the map at the start of Season 7 and this update is no exception. 

More of the snow and ice around the castle has melted to make lower levels accessible to players, and the mysterious Dragon Eggs are more noticeable than ever.

In addition, there is a large ice sphere floating straight above the peak of the mountain, with some theorizing that it could relate to the leaked Ice Storm in-game event (More info soon)


Tilted Towers

The broken down central building in Tilted Towers continues to get closer and closer to taking its final shape as the reconstruction appears to be almost fully complete.

Having been subjected to periodic destruction in the past, it’s hard to tell how long this unlucky building will remain standing. 


Desert Biome

A diner located near Paradise Palms on the desert biome has been replaced by a new ice cream shop called SoFDeeZ. This change appears to be purely cosmetic and should not really affect players’ gameplay near the area.  


Wailing Woods

A new giant rock formation has appeared near Wailing Woods and it appears to be the female counterpart of the male golem that’s been on the map for quite a while now. 

Whether or not this new female golem will start moving around the map like the male version remains to be seen.

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
