Epic Games just added a fan-favorite Season 6 POI in Fortnite OG.
Throughout November, Fortnite OG will receive weekly updates that bring new weapons, items, Bundles, and vehicles to the final season of Chapter 4. There will also be significant map changes in each patch, bringing iconic POIs from Fortnite Chapter 1 to Fortnite in 2023. What started as the Chapter 1 Season 5 map is quickly evolving with each new update.
Here's the big map change in the Fortnite OG Season 6 update.
This Fan-Favorite Season 6 POI is Back in Fortnite OG
Floating Loot Lake, a fan-favorite Season 6 POI, is back in today's Fortnite OG update. Kevin the Cube made his grand return to the Battle Royale after five years to levitate the POI into the sky.
For newer Fortnite players, floating Loot Lake resembles the floating island in Fortnite Chapter 4 (except with no Capture Point). Escaping the high POI is not a problem in traditional Battle Royale, but in Zero Build, players must be careful landing at the new Loot Lake off-spawn. Find a mobility item or use the Bouncers on the side of a Port-A-Fortress to safely descend the POI.
The original Loot Lake is likely gone forever in Fortnite. Fans looking to visit the OG POI will have to find it in Fortnite Creative 2.0 maps from here on out.
When is the Next Fortnite OG Update?
The next Fortnite OG update is on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2023. The update promises more map changes, including the addition of Fortnite OG's first snow biome, Frosty Flights.
The third patch also includes the following unvaulted vehicles and weapons:
- Flint-Knock Pistol
- Quad Launcher
- Poison Dart Trap
- Buried Treasure
- Pirate Cannon
- X-4 Stormwing
Planes have not been in Fortnite for years, and their return will be a welcome adiditon to the mobility pool in Fortnite OG. Navigating Zero Build with the X-4 Stormwing will be much more efficient for players looking to rotate across the map.
