Leaked Images Show Major Changes Coming to the Fortnite Battle Royale Map

A well known data mining account has leaked images of what the Fortnite Battle Royale map will look like following the next major update to the game.

The beginning of Season 4 in Fortnite Battle Royale was one of the most highly anticipated moments in the game’s history as meteors struck the map, changing it significantly, and numerous heroes and villains started to appear.


Now, with Season 4 slowly drawing to a close, the speculation about what Season 5 will bring has started to reach fever pitch, with everything from Villains launching the rocket near Snobby Shores, to an alien invasion being discussed as possibilities.

Most theories do seem to focus on the rocket, though, and it looks like it will continue to play a part in Season 5 as one of the most well data mining accounts, @TwoEpicBuddies, has released images of what the map should look like after next patch.


The images show a new tower in Tilted Towers, which might explain the ongoing building work, some changes to Dusty Divot, which was main impact spot of the meteor, and what seems to be a significant change to the Villain’s lair.

TwoEpicBuddies seems to believe that the rocket is missing entirely, while other community members have suggested that the change is actually showing some silo doors. We’ll leave you to decide for yourself!

The rest of the close up images can be found below and a large full resolution image of the entire map can be viewed here.


It is worth noting that none of the information shared by TwoEpicBuddies has been confirmed by Epic Games and everything is also subject to change before the next update is released (which should be on June 26th).

Epic Games have revealed some of the bug fixes that they’ve got lined up for the next Fortnite update, and a few annoying issues look set to be resolved. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its endpoint, some fans are already looking ahead to what the cinematic end of season event might have in store, as well as what Chapter 2, Season 5 could be about in terms of the theme.


Despite all the speculation, Epic Games are just cracking on with keeping the current season feeling fresh – releasing new challenges, new cosmetics, as well as some other superpowers for players to use.

On top of that, they’ve also been rooting out problems with their regular updates. With the v14.30 patch on the horizon, the devs have also got a few fixes coming to all of their modes. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

A handful of problems have been labeled as ‘Fixed in next Game Update’ on their public Trello board as of October 10, with a few annoying battle royale issues being addressed.

These include the issue with movement stopping when placing a marker, inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble, and licensed audio playing on the Last Forever emote.

In addition to those, mobile players who had been frustrated by the XP bar not showing the correct level will have their issues fixed as well. 


Fortnite v14.30 bug fixes

  • Placing a map marker cancels movement 
  • Inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble 
  • Audio of Last Forever emote playing even with licensed audio muted 
  • XP bar can be visually incorrect while in a match/incorrect leveling up on mobile. 

As for Save the World, there are two issues labeled as fixed in Future Game Update, including the wrong animation for the Sword of the Daywalker and Xbox homeshare players being unable to access STW.

However, as leaker iFireMonkey points out, these are not guaranteed to ship with the v14.30 update and could be coming later down the line. We’ll just have to wait and see.
