Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3's map changes are finally here after a lot of patience and a lot of waiting. Codenamed Splashdown, this season will be aquatic themed and therefore the map will be reflect that. The Doomsday event has left the Fortnite world flooded and water finds itself dominating life and combat.

While players have to now avoid the swimming sharks along with enemies, they can also use a fishing rod to use them as transportation across the new terrain. New mythic weapons will make these water fights a lot more exciting. In the same fashion, Aquaman will now replace Deadpool in the new season's Battle Pass.

Dataminer HYPEX tweeted about the water levels on the map and how they will slowly go down over the course of the season. Epic Games hints at this on their website saying that as time passes and the water recedes, the roads will be open and players will find new transportation. This new form of transportation will be cars.

Players will be able to ride sharks, drive cars, swim in the water, and much more we haven't found out yet with these new map changes in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2.
