Fortnite season 9 has officially kicked off and the newest adventure puts the NEO back in Neon with a new Titled Towers, swanky futuristic skins, and so much more! But the key to being the last man standing in this battle royale experience is knowing the map, that’s why we threw together a small guide of all major map changes that rung in season 9!
Let’s break it down!
After months and months of Tilted Towers destruction rumors, season 8 ended off on a bang because it completely obliterated this part of the map. But, as Epic Games is often want to do, they decided it was out with the old and in with the Neo but that’s exactly what fans have now when they drop into this familiar part of the map.
Mega Mall Stands Where Retail Row Falls
Retail Row has just been seriously upgraded into Mega Mall. Not only a mall, but one that is still inline with the new season’s futuristic touches.
Out with the Volcano, In With The Pressure Plant
The volcano is no more and in its place is a Pressure Plant, an industrial addition to the map that has neat little hideaway places for players to take cover and uncover some sweet loot.
Loot Lake and Junk Junction
Both areas have been given a few futuristic touches including a factory, while Junk Junction has some very interesting debris littered about including brass clocks and stocked fallen bookshelves.
Slipstreams are a new way for players to traverse the map and to make that even easier, Sky Decks, or Platforms, have been added.
