Ranking all the different designs for The Block in Fortnite

Published

on

When The Block came down and destroyed Risky Reels a lot of players were upset. 

Reels had become a fan favorite drop spot relatively quickly and most players didn’t want it gone.

Despite the loss of Risky, The Block has been a solid success.

Having an area of the map that changes constantly and that Epic hasn’t had to actually design has been a win for both players and the developer.

Now that all people who have designed an area featured on The Block are being awarded ten 2,000 V-Bucks codes we wanted to go back through the last couple months and compile all the different designs that have hit The Block.

Then, because even loves a ranking list we decided that would be the best order to share them, but every design is still represented in this list.

Of course, this is just my personal preference but I dropped into every Block design at least once and usually more times. I will be focusing mainly on the aesthetics and cool features in the design.

To make sure I didn’t miss any designs I went through Fortnite’s tweets. They tweeted out most but not all of the designs but I believe I filled in each gap. If there are any I missed, please let me know in the comments.

  1. Looming Llama by Stormhawk on Jan 15th

This is my number one design and the one I dropped into the most. I loved the steampunky design elements and the massive llama was unlike anything Fortnite has ever had before. While most other designs were city-like locations, this one was truly unique and takes the top spot as a result.

2. Lunar Street Festival by NiBLL on February 6th.

This awesome Lucky Landing style design matched up perfectly with the Lunar New Year leading to a fun drop location.

All in all, this design felt like one of the more complete user creations with various points of interest and an interesting feel to the whole creation.

3. FFA Arena by KojackNumber2 on January 11th

Okay, I’ve focused mostly on design choices through the first two, but FFA Arena is just plain fun. Filled with bouncers and cool areas, jumping around the inside of the arena made for some of the most fun engagements I had throughout Season 7.

4. CoLLAMAsseum by Zartbot on January 30th

Another one that reaches its rank for the time it got placed in the game. Leading up to the Super Bowl, Fortnite was in need of a stadium to show off the NFL skins. And even though my Rams didn’t show up in the actual game, it was fun rocking their unis in this stadium as I prepared for the big game.

5. Mysterious Markets (Market Town) by Bludrive on January 2nd.

Mysterious Markets got its name from a secret hidden pathway below the city. The pathway could be accessed by breaking stairs in a couple of locations and players could break those stairs, replace them with a build and pick up hilarious kills on people totally unaware.

6. Grimy Greens by Kaancitak on December 19th

This was the first location to drop on the block. It had to replace Risky and set people up for the designs to come. They played it pretty safe with the first design but the overgrown factory created a cool ambiance that was fun to explore and set people up for the designs to come.

7. Oily Oaks by MrSlickWillyz on February 16th

This oil rig is another interesting design but ultimately doesn’t really stand out among the other options. The name of the creator for this one did pose an issue as it was first on the map as Mrslickwillyz’s block. People quickly pointed out that could be read as “Mrs Lick Willyz” instead of the intended “Mr Slick Willyz” and Epic had to put spaces into the name on the map as a result.

8. Risky Runaways by Ake on December 24th

Another one without a tweet, Risky Runaways was a play on Risky Reels but only really in the name. The design itself is nice but nothing super noteworthy comes out of it.

It’s a cargo airstrip with trucks and planes scattered around. It’s dropped in the rankings because it introduced more plane spawns to the map in a time they were at their most overpowered.

9. Factory Plaza by Coreythedesigner on February 14th

This one flew under the radar a bit as it came with a lot of changes to the game with the v7.40 update. Fortnite didn’t tweet about it from the official account which only happened one other time, coincidentally or maybe not, the two without tweets are the bottom two in the rankings. This one receives this spot not because it didn’t have a tweet but because there is a distinct lack of loot. Even the creator went on Reddit to complain about the loot RNG which unfortunately hurt an otherwise great dropping spot.

10. Omega Pyramid by DirectingPeter on January 21

Wow! Thank you Epic for choosing my Block to go into the game! I’m so grateful! This is so AWESOME!!! from FortNiteBR

The final spot on this list is probably the one that is the most debatable. I’ve been told this Omega Pyramid is from Save the World but I never played so didn’t get the reference. In that case, it may deserve to be higher. I have it last because the description for it promised a secret and I spent a good half hour destroying things in search of that secret to come up empty. Maybe I’m selfish haha. It is a fairly cool pyramid with a disco floor in the bottom and multiple levels leading to the top but unremarkable compared to other designs.

None of the designs that have hit The Block have been bad and this is just my personal preference based on experiences. Please let me know your rankings in the comments below, I’m curious what other people have thought of the various designs on The Block.

Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts. The season is off to a heated start, and it’s only going to get more intense.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

fortnite season 2 the foundation destroyed

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

Fortnite season 8 new weapons

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

We will keep you updated on when Fortnite Season 3 starts. For more Fortnite, check out the best controller settings for Chapter 3, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
