Here are all of the map changes that have been made in the v12.00 Fortnite update.

Epic Games are known for their map changes in Fortnite, as they had kept the same map for 10 seasons and only introduced a new map at the start of Chapter 2. There haven’t been many changes that have been made to the map apart from changes that were made in v11.30 for the Festive Season.

There are a few new POIs (Points of Interest) that have been added to the map in the v12.00 Fortnite update which are named locations on the map. This article will go through all the changes that have been made in this update,

The Shark

A new small island has been added to the top right, next to the Lockie’s Lighthouse Landmark. The name comes from the shark rock structure and you can see the headquarters at the back and in the mouth of the shark.

Shadow Agency

There is a house that can be found on the little island north of Misty Meadows, which at first look just looks like a house but if you go inside, you can see the Shadow logo hanging on the wall and it looks like a headquarters inside. You can just about make out the logo in the window in the image below. The Shadow Agency seems to be more discreet than the Ghost Agency.
