Fortnite leak drops biggest hint of map being destroyed yet

Lots of theories have been pointing to the destruction of the Fortnite Season 10 map and we might have just gotten our biggest hint yet.

Instead of creating multiple maps, Epic Games have been retooling the Fortnite map over the seasons and switching out old locations with new ones.

Now that we’re nearly 11 seasons in, it appears a major shakeup is on the verge of happening and we’re on the cusp of getting a brand-new map.

@forttoryWhat is the Rocket up to?

Numerous theories have pointed towards some sort of major event to close out Season 10 and it’s looking like that event could end up resulting in a new map if these leaks are anything to go off.

A screenshot posted to r/FortniteLeaks by user PokemonLegacy6 reveals players will be transported to a spot well off the island where they’ll be able to watch the event.

We will be teleported to here at some point during the event (SPOILERS) from r/FortniteLeaks

This is definitely the biggest hint yet that something major will be happening to the map. We know the Visitor is currently working on a rocket which originally was set to decimate Tilted Towers back in Season 4, but that didn’t work out so maybe he’s going to make it work this time.

We also know the final event’s name is “The End” if the leaks are correct on that front. If the map isn’t destroyed by this event, it’s almost a given that something just as big will be happening.

Epic GamesMechs are on their way out – is the map going too?

There’s a lot of info out there that points us towards a new map, even if Epic have shown they would like to continuously update to their current one.

Despite all the changes over the seasons, the locations have started to feel more or less the same, which has led fans to ask for a new map.

Keep in mind that this is currently all just a leak and until it comes from Epic Games themselves, it should be taken with a grain of salt.

Even though there is a lot of evidence, it can’t be confirmed just yet.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Epic Games
Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
