Players will find this new area north of Pleasant Park. It had previously been a ruined piece of land before its transformation in the battle royale game's latest update. Players will notice that shooting stars land in this Rift Zone and provide pieces of loot for players to use in their battles. These stars can also drop a never-before-seen weapon for players to utilize in their quest for a Victory Royale. This never-before-seen weapon is a Gold Tactical SMG which should add a great dose of firepower to your inventory for any future gunfights you may encounter. 

The new Starry Suburbs location is not one of the most ambitious map alterations Epic Games has created, but it is one Fortnite players should check out the next time they hop off of the Battle Bus and into a game. However, you will have to be ready for some stiff opposition. There will likely be many other players landing at this new Rift Zone to check it out as well.
