Streaming superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained why the new season of Fortnite currently feels like the previous updates – and why he prefers The Agency to Tilted Towers as a map location.
With the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, Epic Games dropped the V12.00 update that added the secret agents theming, weapons, cosmetic items, and map changes to the uber-popular battle royale title.
To tie it all into the Top Secret theme, new locations have sprung up around the map that allow players to fight against human enemies as well as NPCs in the search for better loot. As a result, these spots have become hot drops – with The Agency, which spits in the center of the map, starting to resemble Tilted Towers due to how many players drop there.
During his February 26 stream, Ninja made that same comparison after being eliminated from a game – explaining that the current update “does feel like the old Fortnite.”
As to why that was, he added: “It’s still like no mats, weird loadout, early fights – this is Tilted bro. If you don’t think this is early Fortnite / Tilted, you’re in denial. All these fights are minimal building, there's not crazy edits at the beginning – pretty much spray and pray. Anyone can kill anyone here.”
As for which one he prefers, Ninja had to side with the current drop spot. “I prefer The Agency over Tilted. I do, I prefer it. It’s literally the same thing, it’s the same.”
The Mixer star also added that there a lot of elements that the new location takes from Fortnite including lots of chests, players being mobile, and lots of fights. “Obviously, it is not, by definition, Tilted Towers, but it is literally the same things that made Tilted great is what The Agency is.”
Of course, as the new Fortnite season unfolds, there could very well be changes made to the new points of interest.
Whether or not that will change down the line still remains to be seen, but as it stands, Ninja is a fan of what he’s playing.
