This new concept would drastically change the map in Fortnite

Despite the fact that major changes have been made to the map of Fortnite Battle Royale since the game’s release last year, many players have been clamoring for a brand new map all-together.

Reddit user ‘CurdledART‘ has created a concept for Fortnite that would fundamentally change how the map looks.


While the concept retains many of the locations that are currently on the map, it’s so dramatically different than the current layout that it could be considered a brand new map.

In addition to keeping many locations, it also proposes for the return of some fan-favorite points of interest, such as Anarchy Acres, Moisty Mire, the old school Factories, and Prison. 


The biggest change that this concept introduces is splitting the map into 13 individual islands, some of which will have terrains and seasons that differ from the others.

In addition, the image also shows that a gigantic volcano would be added at the center, its size dwarfing all of the other major locations on the map.

While the concept above is certainly too radical of a proposition for Epic Games to entertain, certain aspects of it align with what players have been asking for quite some time, such as the return of some of the popular locations listed above, which had been removed from the map during different periods of change.


Another idea is the implementation of seasonally themed landscapes; many have been asking Epic to start changing the look of the map based on the time of the year.

Some have predicted that there will be snowy areas added to the map for the winter season, a theory that was hinted at as a possibility by community manager ‘MrPopoTFS’ in a reply on Reddit.

“We have definitely head the feedback through the seasonal map changes like that would be great!” he wrote.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
