There's a new Fortnite map full of changes to accompany Season 6, one that places the Spire at the center of a primal themed makeover full of animals and new challenges. There are fresh locations as well with some new places arriving and other more familiar points of interest getting a seasonal make over to fit a new theme in a new Fortnite season. 

The effects of the Zero Point have reached out from the center of the map and affected areas like Salty Towers, which is now Boney Burbs. While Colossal Colosseum is now Colossal Crops. There's also some visual changes that suggest the map might continue to alter over time. So let's take a look at the new Fornite map and how it's changed.

It's hard to miss the effect of the Zero Point on the new Fortnite map, with the giant central Spire sitting tall in the center of everything. The reality waves that burst out of it have also affected Salty Towers and Colossal Colosseum, turning them into Boney Burbs and Colossal Crops respective .

Let's take a closer look at the amino changes.

The Spire

Right of the center of the map sits the spire, a giant tower where The Foundation appears to be trapped, fighting to contain the Zero Point - preventing it from destroying reality. You'll also find a device near the base where you can slot in orbs dropped by various Spire Guardians, in return for powerful weapons and gear.  

Colossal Crops

Colossal Crops has replaced Colossal Colosseum on the map and adds a very familiar rural feel to the area. It's a big open space with not a great deal of protection so a potentially risky drop if you fancy heading there first. 

Boney Burbs

Salty Towers is now Boney Burbs and there's not a huge change here save for a bit of a pallet swap. It's the same basic tight little urban area with a few high buildings to give you a look over the surrounding if you settle here for a while. 

Small Spires

As well as the giant central Spire there are a number of smaller spires scattered around, usually at the end of the brown areas showing where the Spire affected the map. You'll usually fight spire guardians here, that will drop an orb you can trade at the main Spire for high value loot, as well as a jump pad device to help you get there faster. Currently these appear at the following locations: 

  • North, between Stealthy Stronghold and Craggy Cliffs
  • North east, between Colossal Crops and Steamy Stacks
  • South east, just above Retail Row
  • South, in Lazy Lake, just above Misty Meadows
  • South west in Weeping Woods, just above Slurpy Swamps
  • North west, right of Sweaty Sands
