Now that the newest season is here for Fortnite, players have a lot of new changes to look forward to. The map has changed quite a bit as Season 8 kicks off, and we’re going to discuss each of the changes you can expect to find on the island when you dive into the arena.
Fortnite Season 8 Map Changes and Updates
There are a multitude of changes you can expect to find on the island in Fortnite Season 8. On top of several smaller additions and three big changes. We’ll cover it all below, so let’s get started.
This change is extremely hard to miss. Located in the northeastern section of the map, the volcano lies in between where Wailing Woods and Tomato Temple used to be. You can find several things to explore in the base of the volcano, as well as several volcano vents around the area.
Located around the area that The Block used to be, Sunny Steps is a new area for players to loot and fight within. It can be found in the northeastern area of the map, so make sure you check it out.
Taking the place of Lazy Links, players can now visit the Lazy Lagoon, a pirate-themed area that now appears on the map. There are several forested areas surrounding it, as well as some nifty spots to check for loot.
Tilted Towers has once more received some additional work with the building that constantly finds itself destroyed and rebuilt appearing as fully constructed again.
Seven pirate camps have been built around the map. Make sure to visit all seven pirate camps to complete one of the week 1 challenges!
You can now find The Block where the motel once rested on the map.
This house in Salty Springs has now been redesigned.

A rabbit shaped building close to Snobby Shores.
Some new hot springs northeast of Lazy Lagoon.
Tears in the ground draw out a fork and a knife in the area of the island northwest of Fatal Fields.

Omg. I grinded out a free season pass last month for the overtime thing...damn. A battle pass give you a BUTTLOAD of cosmetic stuff. Gonna try to earn another freebie for next month but realistically I will burn out before that happens. The ingame note suggest it would take about 75 hours to get enough of the currency through challenges to buy a pass.
Proofreading this post, it sounds like a shill but I recently found some local players and we’ve been squadding up. For my first experience with a BR game, I’ve been enjoying myself.
Any shackers playing this on switch lol?
