Tilted Towers may get destroyed according to new Fortnite Battle Royale leak

New leaked files released by data-miners suggest that Tilted Towers may be destroyed in the near future.

Tilted Towers was originally added to Fortnite during Season 2 of the popular battle royale title, and has become a fan-favorite landing spot for players who like to find action early in their matches.


That may soon be a thing of the past if these leaks are accurate, as the sprawling city may soon be brought to the ground.

Could A.I.M. be involved in the demolition of Tilted Towers?

Dataminer FNLeak has found files in a folder named ‘ClientPilotScenarios/DestroyTiltedTowers’ that suggest robots will flood into Tilted Towers and begin to destroy the iconic location.


The robots will be immortal, and will have max ammunition, using Rocket Launchers, LMGs, Grenade Launchers and Hand Cannons to bring Tilted Towers down.

It’s possible that this could be linked to the A.I.M. Hunting Party skin, a robot character which has been spotted in the background of various loading screens since it was released. The A.I.M. skin was looking intently at a map in the Week 8 loading screen, which may have been plans to destroy the area.

This isn’t the first time that Fortnite fans have believed that the end of Tilted Towers was coming. Back in Season 4, Tilted Towers was believed to be the target of the massive meteor which crashed onto the map, but instead destroyed Dusty Depot, turning it into Dusty Divot.


While dataminers have found this in the files of the game, it doesn’t mean it will definitely happen. Events and skins have been found in the game’s files in the past, only for them to never see the light of day, leaving Fortnite fans wondering what happened to them.

If Tilted Towers is destroyed, it’s likely it will take place during Season 7 which is set to start next week. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as new information becomes available.


Fortnite Flare Gun return leaked with major buff

A new Fortnite leak has claimed that the Flare Gun could be set to make a return in the near future, and it would be receiving quite a substantial buff too. 

As Fortnite seasons unfold, weapons and items are regularly cycled in and out of the loot pool – either for being too strong, too weak, or not fitting the theme of the new patch. 


This means that some fan-favorite weapons might disappear from the game for one reason or another, either to return at some point later in the future or to never be seen again. 

In the case of the Flare Gun, which was initially added to the battle royale back in the v13.20 update but it was removed at the start of Chapter 2, Season 4. With some fans hoping to see it return, especially given the new fire mechanics, it appears as if Epic have got something up their sleeve.

The Flare Gun first appeared in a small short video from Epic Games.

Following the v14.30 update, which gave a buff to the Combat Shotgun and also brought the Rally Royale limited-time mode to the party, leakers uncovered a handful of changes coming in the future.

This includes the Flare Gun, which as leaker Mang0e_ pointed out, could be set to return to the battle royale after a spell in the vault, but with a little bit of a boost too. 

“The flare gun may be coming back to core modes soon,” the leaker tweeted on October 15. “The duration for marking enemies was re-added and increased to 15 seconds.”


While this is not set in the stone, as the leaker tweeted that it may return, some fans will be hoping that the Flare Gun does return – especially given its reported buff.

This increase in time with marking enemies would certainly make players think twice about ignoring the chance to use the Flare Gun. But, as ever, it’ll be up to Epic to make the final call.
