Fortnite new map changes and additions for Season 6 explained

A look at the new locations you can explore in Season 6's map.

Fortnite's map has been updated with a number of new locations and changes with the arrival of Season 6 and new Season 6 Battle Pass skins.

This map reflects the theme of the season - Primal - which sees the Zero Point and desert location in the centre be replaced with a more prehistoric feel, including several new locations, such as Boney Burbs and Colossal Crops.

As with previous Chapter 2 seasons, you have to visit all of these locations in person before they reveal themselves on the map. But if you want to know exactly where you're going, this map page will come in handy.

Within it are named locations, many of which only appear when you visit for the first time:

  • Boney Burbs (previously Salty Towers)
  • Colossal Crops (previously Colossal Coliseum
  • The Spire (previously the unnamed Zero Point in the centre of the map)

There are, of course, other changes - including some new landmarks which aren't named on the map, as well as tweaks to the likes of Weeping Woods, which has seen the prehistoric theme spread out to.
