The now infamous Fortnite player ‘Elemental_Ray’ gained notoriety recently after he wiped out 48 players in a single solo game – taking advantage as over half the lobby looked on at the rocket launch.

The rocket launch event was the first major live event taking place in Fortnite, and an unwritten truce of sorts had been agreed between players.

Because the rocket launch would only be visible once, many player put down their weapons and gazed into the battle royale island sky, to witness the event.

But of course, there were bound to be some spoil sports taking advantage of those with their guard down, and one player, Elemental_Ray took his chance to break the solo kills record.

By destroying the ramp which held 48 players, Elemental_Ray send them flying to their demise – but it turns out that the ramp was in fact holding more than 48 players.

A reddit post shows that there was in fact 54 players on the elevated platform, but the elimination of six of them was attributed to another player after they did removed a single timber floor piece.

The post shows a player by the name PcGaming1724 breaking the platform holding the six other players, meaning that the record was reduced to only 48, attributed to Elemental_Ray.

The solo record could have been 54 kills from r/FortNiteBR

Many have already written off the 48 kill record as simply unbeatable, so imagine it was bolstered by another six kills.

The guilty party, Elemental_Ray has also made a video explaining his side of the story, showing that another player was in fact planning to knock the ramp, and so he simply swooped in and took the glory.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…
