Instant death locations have reared their ugly heads in Fortnite before and were eventually fixed, but with the new Chapter 2 map, players have discovered at least two such locations already.

After being sucked into a black hole at the end of Season X, Fortnite went dark, but has now reemerged and completely rebranded itself as ‘Chapter 2’.

As part of this rebrand, a brand-new map was introduced that features a few familiar locations sprinkled in with loads of new ones.

Epic GamesChapter 2 has arrived but it brought instadeath spots too.

The new map has created a lot of excitement, but there are already some serious problems with it due to bugs, which can be deadly.

Streamers SypherPK and TimTheTatman have discovered separate areas by Frenzy Farm that result in your instant demise.

Also at Frenzy Farm, but at a slightly different location, TimTheTatman and his squad were all wiped out by an instadeath spot.

These spots are particularly dangerous because you’ll skip the downed state and go straight to death, leaving your team with just a Reboot Card. However, they can’t even grab your card, because they too will fall victim to the instadeath.

There hasn’t been an official response from Epic Games about this dangerous location yet, but if it continues to pose a threat to unsuspecting players, we can expect some communication soon.

Surprisingly, there hasn’t been a set of patch notes released for Chapter 2 at the time of writing, despite the game being live again.

It’s clear a lot of changes were made, but players will have to figure them all out on their own for now, including the instadeath locations, instead of reading patch notes.

In the meantime, be on the lookout for more instadeath spots – we see how easy they can sneak up on you.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
