Here is a concept that would be easy to implement and improve the Fortnite map.

Fortnite receives updates on a weekly basis to improve the game and these updates could include bug fixes, adding new items or removing old ones and map changes. Epic tend to take the feedback from the community and try to implement new ideas to the game in order to make it more fun and easier to play.

One feature Epic had added was a map zoom feature, where players could zoom into the map to see a certain location better. Zooming into the map is a useful feature when you are playing in duos and squads as it is clear when you are marking which building you want to land in, where enemies are or marking loot, etc.

Reddit user Deoxyribow has suggested another concept to improve the map where the map would only show areas that are not in the storm when progressing through the game:

As the map is quite big, when the storm is quite big, there is no need to show most of the map. When looking at the map if this concept is implemented, it would be quick and easy to see what part of the map is not in the storm and where the storm is heading to next and it won’t show most of the map that is in the storm.

It could be argued that this feature is not necessary as you can already zoom in the map and so you can zoom in to the area you want to see.

Let us know what you think about this concept in the comments below.

Yes, Fortnite has a zoom function, but it is lacking in my opinion. This concept would eliminate much of the hassle. So many times I’ve gone to look at my map in the heat of battle and it’s still zoomed in on a now-storm-covered location I hastily marked before jumping from the bus. Then I have to zoom out, figure out where my marker is, move my cursor to that area, zoom back in, finally survey the area and by the time I exit the map, my opponent(s) have most likely gifted me with a shotgun to the face.

I dont know sometimes its better to have the map like it is other times not in many games i get trapped into the storm and lose health if this auto corrected into were it only showed the safe circle i wouldn’t use it because when traveling across the map sometimes you get teammates who land all across the map

I think the map good enough but they make the zoom more accurate so we see the buildings

I think Epic should Dedicate separate Settings to the Map and Navigation UI
– Map UI Scale
– Map Opacity
– Map UI Shape ( Square , Circle )
– Map Rotation with a north indicator
– Only show other players count not all players
