Reddit User Creates Concept for How to Make Loot Lake a More Appealing Place to Land in Fortnite

Despite the various unique locations on the Fortnite: Battle Royale map, most players tend to choose to land at only a few of them.

Players will often look to land in either large or more central points-of-interest such as Tilted Towers or Paradise Palms, avoiding the smaller fringe locations such as Junk Junction and Flush Factory.

However, despite being a large and central location on the map, Loot Lake is often considered to be on the less desirable places to land.

Many attribute this to the fact that aside from the factories on its shore and the house in the middle, there are not many places to find loot, and getting from one end of the lake to the other can often be a lengthy and costly task.

A Reddit user by the name of ‘zane415’ has offered up a suggestion on how to make Loot Lake a more appealing landing spot.

The user’s solution would be for Epic Games to add a few hotels and lake houses in and around the location, to make it both an alluring and efficient place to land.

Zane415 even took the time to demonstrate the potential of the suggestion by building several structures around Loot Lake in the Playground Limited Time Mode.

Judging by his concept image, adding such structures would very likely attract many players to land at the POI, especially since it is so central on the Fortnite map.

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


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
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 Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

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.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
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…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
