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.

Tilted Towers destroyed by Volcano

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.

Nuketown 2025 Zone Wars: 1149-4422-7888

Nuketown 2025 zone wars by Clapzfn is more of a novelty than anything. It’s very cool to revisit this highly detailed recreation of a Call of Duty classic. Some of the buildings have invisible barriers at the top, and the storm always pushes to the center of the map. Regardless, it’s a ton of fun to be the last player standing in Nuke Town.

Desert Zone Wars Chapter 2: 1811-9621-1739

Those who have been playing zone wars maps for a long time are probably familiar with Jotapegame’s desert zone wars maps. However, this is the latest installment in the series that incorporates the changes made in Chapter 2. Enjoy the classic desert-themed zone wars with modern weapons and items.

From the way it spawns players in to all of the decorative pieces, it really makes you feel like you’re in Area 51. It also offers a fantastic competitive experience that’s sure to get players ready for the final moments of FNCS tournaments.

50 Player Zonewars: 6167-1882-6710

50 Player Zonewars is one of the most intense creative maps once the lobby is full. The loot pool changes regularly to match Arena Mode, and there are plenty of different maps. For the higher skill tourneys that have 50 or more people in the endgame, this mode is perfect for realistic practice.

Prop Hunt has long been part of collective gaming culture. The mode has finally arrived in Fortnite and it looks to be a whole lot of fun!

Due to some mishaps on the part of Epic, Fortnite has been suffering some negative strides. In order to switch things back around, the devs need a successive streak of victories.

Prop Hunt has been a much asked for ‘just for fun’ mode and Epic is now delivering. This, along with great v9.30 changes, could really bring back a lot of excitement for Fortnite!

Prop Hunt playable now in Fortnite

Fortnite’s Creative mode is a stirring pot of creative genius and remarkable talents. For the lucky few chosen by Epic, the creations made in Creative become legendary adventures played by millions.

Prop Hunt has been brought to life by a team of talented Creative creators. The team at StrayKite managed to create a replica of the classic experience that plays like a dream.

The mode is available to play now in Creative & Playground lobbies.

The basic rules of Prop Hunt are as follows:

  • Props are given a set amount of time to hide before Seekers try to find them
  • Each Prop can switch between differing objects a certain amount of times
  • Seekers try to find all the Props before the time limit is reached. If they manage to do so, the Seekers win.
  • If all Props are not found, the Props win.

Epic Games has not given any end-date for the Prop Hunt island feature, but the prop hunt mode can always be played from here on out. This can be done by using the Island Code provided by Epic (6069-9263-9110).

Using the Creative mode’s configuration settings, you can also create custom Prop Hunt game types. This includes longer Seeker time limits, stricter win conditions, banned props, and more. More options will be added for the mode in the future.

Fortnite Battle Lab mode removed in latest update (Updated May 4)

Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode has disappeared from the mode select screen and Epic Games has made no comment on where the mode went.

Fortnite Battle Labs Mode Art

Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode has been disabled in the v16.30 patch, and fans aren’t happy with its removal.

UPDATE: The Battle Labs mode has been turned back on as of May 4th, 2021.

Battle Lab was added in December of 2019 close to the start of Fortnite Chapter 2. This core game mode replaced the Playground mode which allowed players to explore The Island alone or with friends.

While Playground was mostly a vanilla battle royale experience, Battle Lab allowed players to set their own rules and change loot pools. Video editors would use Battle Lab to produce high-quality content, and it also allowed younger players to enjoy the game without allowing them to play with strangers.

Fortnite Mode Select Screen

However, Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode has seemingly disappeared in the latest update without any word from Fortnite or Epic Games. This has led to an outcry from fans on Twitter who are asking for the game mode to be reinstated.

Downtime for the Fortnite v16.30 started at 4 a.m. EST on April 27, and shortly after the servers came back online players started to notice Battle Lab was missing. The Fortnite Status Twitter made various posts noting the changes made in the update, but Battle Lab wasn’t mentioned a single time.

Over the past 24 hours, Fortnite Status has also acknowledged various bug fixes and server issues. While it remains unknown whether Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode was removed by accident, the lack of acknowledgment makes it seem as if it were removed intentionally.

The removal of Battle Lab won’t affect the majority of Fortnite’s player base, it will have an impact on content creators. As stated by Frenzy2nd on Twitter, it would be ideal for Fortnite to let players know what its plans are for the future of Battle Lab.

In the meantime, there are still plenty of modes available for players to enjoy. These include the new Free For All Arena mode, One Shot duos, and an assortment of featured Creative modes. Stay tuned for the latest information regarding Fortnite’s Battle Lab mode.
