Fortnite Rift Zone locations: What are Rift Zones and where do you find them?

You may not know the Fortnite Rift Zones by their official name, but if you've experienced any of the strange goings on across the island during Fortnite Season 10 then you'll have been inside them. To fit in with the season's theme of being "Out of Time", the Rift Zones surround areas of the map in giant blue orbs then warp the landscape inside to a different time period. Not only does this completely change the layout of the land, but these domes also affect how Fortnite behaves while you're inside them, such as reducing gravity or allowing you to disguise yourself as objects.

Knowing where to find Rift Zone will also be a big help if you're tackling the Fortnite Worlds Collide challenges, as they're an integral part of several missions featured in Week 3. Read on, and we'll show you exactly where to find all of the current Fortnite Rift Zones, and detail the effects they have on players within.

As you can see on the Fortnite map above, there are currently five different Fortnite Rift Zones on the island. These can be found at Loot Lake, Tilted Town (formerly Tilted Towers/Neo Tilted), Retail Row (formerly Mega Mall), Greasy Grove (formerly the frozen lake), and Moisty Palms (formerly Paradise Palms). If you venture into any of these areas, here's what you can expect to encounter:

Fortnite Rift Zone - Loot Lake

The Fortnite Rift Zone at Loot Lake is suspended in the midst of an explosion, and there's one of the Fortnite rifts right in the middle of it. The area is affected by low gravity, allowing you to jump greater distances and fall further without taking any damage.

The Fortnite Rift Zone at Tilted Town replaces the futuristic Neo Tilted, throwing the whole area back into the Wild West. There is no building or breaking allowed in this zone, so you'll just have to rely on the existing scenery for cover... unless you follow our guide on how to build in Tilted Town.

When the Fortnite Rift Zone appeared at Retail Row, it reverted back to its more humble roots before it was upgraded to the Mega Mall. This area has now gone dark and been infested by The Horde, so you'll need to watch out for attacks from Fiends in addition to opponents.

The frozen lake north of Polar Peak has been defrosted, which means Greasy Grove is back. In keeping with the fast food theme of the area, Tacos will be fall from the sky at certain times, forcing all players to dance – but while dancing you can't take damage from enemies and regenerate 20 health per second.

Finally some water has been returned to the desert biome, which means that trees have sprouted all around the area where Paradise Palms has become Moisty Palms. This whole area has now been turned into a giant prop hunt, so click crouch to turn yourself into an object. You can still move around in this state, while the aim trigger locks you in place until you press it again and the shoot trigger turns you back into your character again.
