Explosive changes have been made all across the map in Fortnite Season 10 as the v10.20 content update is now live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC Platforms!

Returning points of interest has been a common theme throughout the game’s landmark tenth season so far, with Dusty Depot coming back on day one, which was followed by Retail Row, and developers have even teased the return of Kevin the Cube as well. 

Yet, while some things may have been teased, only some items have made the cut this time around with the all-new Zapper Trap, a brand new location, as well as some general tweaks and changes to the uber-popular battle royale title.

New Zapper trap!

First of all, a brand new trap has been released in-game, after first appearing in the game’s news feed on September 2. 

The official teaser simply stated: “DANGER: HIGH VOLTAGE. Trap ’em and Zap ’em,” yet, Epic has given us a real look into the damage it will do to enemy players with a trailer. The Zapper Trap can found in everything from Floor Loot, to chests, to Loot Llamas and holds an Epic rarity.

Map changes

Rumors suggested that fan-favorite Kevin The Cube would be making a return to the game thanks to the traveling Rift Beacons.

The new Rift Zone, which was teased in the game’s leaked screenshots, has now appeared above Fatal Fields in the form of the floating Island. Not only that, but the island also holds the Motel – meaning that two locations have returned in one fell swoop!
