One of the new additions to Fortnite Battle Royale for Season 7 has been a long time request, as players will now be able to personalize weapons and vehicles with the new ‘Wraps’ option.

Instead of every weapon you pick up just being the boring old grey color, you will be able to equip new Wraps by levelling up your battle pass.

And not just weapons, as vehicles like the Quadcrasher can also be customized with Wraps too, giving them a much more personal feel when in game.

Update: Here’s a look at every wrap available in the Season 7 Battle Pass, plus what tier you will unlock it. Epic Games will probably add more in the shop too throughout Season 7.

We got a first glimpse at these new Wraps being applied to weapons and vehicles in the trailer, showing the standard Assault Rifle is one of the weapons which can be personalized.

In the official patch notes, only Rifles and Shotguns are mentioned, so it sounds like certain other weapons such as pistols or SMG’s may not have wraps available (yet).

Give your weapons and vehicles a new look with Wraps. Level up your Battle Pass to unlock different Wraps, then equip them in your locker to items like vehicles, shotguns, rifles and more.

Here’s an example of Wraps on the Assault Rifle, which even for just plain red and blue certainly make the weapons a lot better to look at, and we can only imagine how creative the developers will get with these.

Also shown was examples of Wraps on the Quadcrasher. Presumably you will be able to use wraps on all vehicles in the game – including the new Stormwing plane.

For players who have grown to love weapon camo’s in other games, the new Wraps feature will be one of the most exciting additions to Fortnite in Season 7.

The trailer also shows what they look like in-game, and you can definitely notice them even in third-person, as is shown with the burst AR.

Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Some locations have way more deaths than others in Fortnite.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
