The evolution of Tilted Towers throughout Fortnite’s seasons

Published

on

Tilted Towers has gone through multiple iterations throughout the Fortnite seasons and even got destroyed before the start of Season 9.

Tilted Towers isn’t just a location. It’s the center for much of Fortnite’s lore and has received changes throughout its long history. The city has been influential in shaping how players play Fortnite as it serves as a hub for mass amounts of loot.

As Tilted Town was recently introduced, we wanted to take a nostalgic look back on everything Tilted has gone through. From Season 2 to Season X, let’s go on a trip down memory lane together.

Original Tilted Towers added in Fortnite Season 2

Big Bertha, they call her. Magnificent, she is.

The original Tilted Towers was added to Fortnite in Season 2 on January 18, 2018. It was part of a massive upgrade to the island which included dozens of map changes and new named locations. Before this update, most of the map was barren of any landmarks and consisted mostly on rolling green hills and mountains in between named zones.

Tilted Towers quickly became the go-to hot drop for the majority of the community. Competitive players at the time played specifically for eliminations and Tilted Towers regularly drew in over half of every lobby.

Just as more modern versions of Tilted, the location included the highest concentration of loot to date.

The tragic tale of the 3-Story building of Tilted

Here comes the BOOM! – via Fortnite Wiki

In the middle of Tilted Towers, there was once a 3-story building which began its life just as any other building. However, the future of the 3-story would be a dark and dangerous journey of destruction and reincarnation.

In Season 4, a meteor landed on the building and destroyed a significant portion of its structure. Demolition crews were sent in to slowly demolish the remainder in order to get a replacement building.

In Season 5, the new sporting goods store was built in the original’s place. Sadly, the store was crushed as Kevin the CUBE made its way through Tilted at the end of the season.

As Season 7 rolled around, work had begun on a new building once again. This ended up being a news studio, but the architect in charge had done a poor job of it. After the snow melted from around Tilted, players began to see cracks forming on the studio. Shortly thereafter, the whole building crumbled down due to the map-wide earthquake leading into Season 8.

The last version of the 3-story came in Season 8 as the ‘No Sweat Insurance’ building.

The tale of the 3-story ends with the destruction of Tilted Towers. The Unvaulting event caused the Volcano to erupt during Season 8, spewing out lava and rocks. One of these deadly projectiles hit Tilted Towers and obliterated everything except the lone ‘No Sweat Insurance.’

The event was quite the spectacle and resulted in the unvaulting of the Drum Gun. It was a hard price for the community to pay.

Epic knew that Tilted Towers couldn’t stay away for too long since it’s always been Fortnite’s most visited location. So, they’d planned something amazing well ahead of time to give the location a makeover.

Neo Tilted arrives with futuristic theme

Now that’s how you remaster an old classic!

As Season 9 began, Tilted Towers transformed from a pile of smoldering rubble to a futuristic metropolis. The zone now featured shiny roads, metal mats for days, and the same general layout everyone loved.

While nostalgia can be a powerful emotion for gamers, players welcomed Neo Tilted with open arms. We’d argue that it’s still among Epic’s best works due to being able to keep the same vibe alive while completely reworking the scenery. The timing came well with hype building for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game which features similar styles of architecture.

The location also got its own Slipstream network ring which allowed players to fly around and launch themselves into the air. These were eventually removed in Season X with the arrival of Tilted Town.

Tilted Town brings ‘no build’ zones to Fortnite

It’s always high noon somewhere in the Fortnite world

The latest version of Tilted was added in the v10.0 Content Update. The location is the first of many ‘Rift Zones’ which will revamp the appearance (and mechanics) of favorite zones.

Tilted Town swaps the future for the past by bringing in a Wild West theme. The town includes a stable, saloon, sheriff’s office, and more.

The key feature which has some players rejoicing and others raging is the removal of all building within Tilted Town. Players also cannot destroy anything within the town. This mechanical change emphasizes set map knowledge and positioning over the usual Fortnite experience.

It’s not yet known when or if the location will be removed.


Which version of Tilted Towers is your favorite? The location has seen so many changes that it can be hard to choose a specific one above the others. Our favorite, if we had to choose, would probably be Neo Tilted due to its beautiful art style and respects paid to the original Tilted.
