Here are all of the map changes that have taken place at the start of Season 9 in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Fortnite Season 9 has begun and there are quite a lot of changes that have been made to the map since last season. Epic had teased that Tilted Towers would be rebuilt, but it looks like it has been renamed as well to the name spelt out by the teasers leading up to the season release, ‘NEO’. Here is what the map looks now and we will go through the significant changes made in this update below.

Neo Tilted

Tilted Towers was completely destroyed in the Unvaulting Event at the end of Season 8, but Neo Tilted has arisen from its ashes and is definitely futuristic. The building are completely different, but the ‘Unlucky building’, the No Sweat Insurance building, which had miraculously survived the Volcanic rocks, is still standing and is now next to the Durrr Burger restaurant.

There’s also a statue that can be seen in Neo Tilted of a woman holding a helmet, which could be the same helmet seen on the table during the Unvaulting Event. It’s not clear at the moment what this means, but it could lead to a future event in Fortnite.

The clock that was very damaged after the event has been updated with a modern digital clock at the top.

The old clock has been transported to Junk Junction and it the old furniture that survived the volcanic explosion at Tilted Towers has been moved to the corner of the junkyard.

Mega Mall

Retail Row was also affected by the volcanic rocks and was destroyed with one hit. Looks like Mega Mall has now replaced the POI and we can see the Pizza Pit rebuilt in the mall.

There is a Slipstream wind transportation system surrounding the new POI, which makes it quite easy to travel around. There is also an Easter egg in Mega Mall as one of the places in the mall is the Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream Parlor. For those that don’t know, this is a parlour that features in the popular Netflix Originals Series Stranger Things. The next season for Stanger Things will starting on 4th July so we may see a small collaboration, although nothing has been confirmed.

Pressure Plant

The volcano was added in Season 8, but it wasn’t a named location on the map. The Pressure Plant is a named location on the map, which is located on the volcano. The volcano is no longer accessible from the top and the plant has taken over.

Further down, you can see that there are trucks that are making their way out of the plant. We could see them move in the next major update and they could be a part of the new Season 9 storyline.

Loot Lake

The vault is no longer active at Loot Lake, but it seem there has been some development at this POI. The main change at Loot Lake is that there is a massive pipe that goes from the vault all the way to Neo Towers, which could mean that the lake is now powering Neo Tilted. There is also a truck there, similar to the ones that we have seen leaving the Pressure Plant, so it seems the volcano is somehow powering the vault, which is supplying power to Neo Tilted.

Sky Platforms

There are seven new Sky Platforms that have been added to the map in this season and one of the challenges for Season 9, Week 1 is to visit all of the Sky Platforms. Here are all the locations for the platform to help you complete the challenge.

Windmills

Similar to the Sky Platforms, there are now windmills located in the northwest area of the map. There are ziplines that come to and from the windmills and they will no doubt feature in at least one of the weekly challenges for this season.

My opinion on the new combat shotgun first everyone that I know that plays Fortnite says they don’t like it and why did they take the pump out for that not saying to take it out of the game but if you don’t bring the pump back pretty soon majority of the Fortnite players are going to stop playing the game. I think you should put the pumps back in and take the tactical shotgun out of the game for the combat shotgun. The combat shotgun has 10 shots and the tactical shotgun has 8 and they both shoot repeatedly… Read more »
