The biggest change to Fortnite Battle Royale, as the Boom Bow weapon was finally inducted into the game’s vault. In other words, it’s been removed. 

In addition to these changes, Epic Games have decided to mix up the appearance of the map itself, seemingly in conjunction with the upcoming Cattus Event. While there hasn’t been any areas removed or added to the map, players who drop into the game will see some marked changes to some of their favorite points of interest.

Loot Lake

One of the bigger changes from the recent map update comes at Loot Lake. The monster which had been previously housed under Polar Peak and has since escaped, made its mark on the popular landing spot by destroying the factories to the west.

The long-running wires that link Loot Lake to NEO Tilted, as well as the slipstreams, have been exposed too. So, players can now get a look inside the huge tubes. There is also a footprint from the monster situated by the newly destroyed factories and it’s huge!

Epic GamesLoot Lake has now seen some incredible devastation.

Fortnite’s 14 days of Summer

On a more cheerful note, locations across the map have been given party tune-ups in preparation for the upcoming 14 days of Summer event.

Two areas in particular – Lazy Lagoon and the desert biome – have had items like large umbrellas and lounge chairs dotted around to represent a pool party-like atmosphere.

In addition to those, giant beach balls have been dotted around. Like the Baller vehicles, these can be hit around using your harvesting tool. However, we’re not quite sure yet if you’ll do damage by hitting another player with them just yet.

John Wick’s house

Sticking with the desert biome, John Wick’s house has been dragged into the future. While the event based around the movie release might well have come to a close, the eastern-based house still remains.

There have been no changes to the structure of the house itself, but if you run to the back you’ll find a brand new set of solar panels like those at Frosty Flights.

Epic GamesJohn Wick’s house has been given some upgrades.

Pleasant Park

Houses in and around Pleasant Park have suffered some damage, but it’s not quite certain what has caused it.

The modern-looking home, similar to the one that occupies a place near Loot Lake, has been completely wrecked and torn down. A chest may still spawn in the garage, though you’ll have no cover from above unless you decide to bust out some materials.

Epic GamesOne of the popular landing spots at Pleasant Park has seen better days.

With a number of these changes coming alongside whatever destruction the monster is set to inflict on the map, more tweaks and updates may appear in the future.

Keep your eyes locked to Dexerto for the all latest updates as we’ll be sure to keep this post up to date with any other further changes.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
