Fortnite’s Pleasant Park has been changing subtly throughout Season 2, but if you haven’t been paying close attention, you might have missed it.

Epic Games updates Fortnite with brand new weapons, items, and map changes far more frequently than most other battle royale titles.

While some adjustments are easily noticeable, such as the underwater hatches near The Agency, others are subtle and more gradual changes. Pleasant Park and Crash Site have both been altered over time throughout Season 2, and here’s what you might have missed.

Moving cargo

Epic Games
Supplies from Crash Site have been moving to a new location.

Crash Site was introduced at the beginning of Chapter 2. Since then, a faction war has broken out between the Ghost and Shadow operatives, one of which appears to be stealing resources from this particular point of interest.

While the location features a crashed plane with plenty of loose cargo, the number of supplies on the island is slowly dwindling.

Since the beginning of Season 2, supplies from Crash Site have been transported over to the Shadow Safe House in Pleasant Park, as Reddit user ‘Foxtrot1124’ pointed out on April 12.

Fun Fact! Since the start of Season 2 Chapter 2 the Crash Site landmark has been slowly changing! The supplies inside have all been moving to the shadow house in pleasant park, and just recently vines started growing on the plane, nothing huge, but definitely excited to see what happens next update! from FortNiteBR

Vines are growing

Crash Site could also be set for a big change of its own as vines have slowly been growing over the wreckage week by week.

While more and more foliage may continue to take over the plane and the island as a whole, things may shake up drastically in the weeks to come. Season 3 is just weeks away and Epic often changes old locations and introduces new ones in major seasonal updates.

Perhaps the heated war between Ghost and Shadow will finally come to fruition with a few key destinations being wiped off the grid. Only time will tell as we approach the next season.

Epic Games
The safe house at Pleasant Park could be gearing up for an all-out war.

Pleasant Park has been the target of much debate in the Fortnite community throughout Season 2. From rumors of an outright removal, to a hidden underground bunker… Could it all be changing again very soon?

Season 3 of Fortnite is just weeks away and Dexerto will be keeping you on top of all the biggest changes in the lead-up.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua banned from FNCS by Epic Games

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by participating past the first match of the Finals. 

It was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy simply joked about the incident.

 

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
