Fortnite Battle Royale players have been waiting for some of the game’s previous points of interest to return for a long time and four of them might be added soon in Season X, according to potentially leaked information. 

Many fans might have had an idea that Epic Games would return to the original map to kick off their landmark tenth season, and while the initial teaser hinted towards just that, it was only Dusty Depot that made a return when it went live on August 1. 

However, new information suggests the next weekly content update to the battle royale game, patch v10.10, could pave the way for the return of four previously removed destinations.

Popular Fortnite leaker HYPEX posted side-by-side images on social media which appear to show parts of the snow melting in the near future, possibly hinting at a revival for Greasy Groves – which was removed and covered in ice back in Season 7. 

After closer examination, the dataminer confirmed that these changes in the snow have been progressively ongoing since the v9.40 update in Season 9. Still, though, it could start to rapidly melt at some point.

Anarchy Acres, Greasy Grove and more to return? 

While the ice melting might be a bit of a slow burner as we head towards the v10.10 update, there has also been a discovery in the game’s data files that suggests it’s not just Greasy Groves on the menu. 

In fact, there are a total of four locations that could be coming back if the leak proves to be accurate. These include: Anarchy Acres, Greasy Grove, Risky Reels, and Moisty Mire – with the latter featuring in the game files more than once during the start of the season as ‘Moisty Palms’.

There is a little bit of uncertainty surrounding the idea of the ice melting, as the process doesn’t appear to have sped up since the season begun, but the potentially leaked data files do mention previously removed locations. 

While not yet confirmed, these leaks could be our first indication of what to expect in the next set of map changes. If true, Epic might have something big in store next time around.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
