Fortnite new map changes and additions for Season 7 explained

A look at the new locations you can explore in Season 7's map.

Fortnite's map has been updated with a number of new locations and changes with the arrival of Season 7 and new Season 7 Battle Pass skins.

This map reflects the theme of the season - Invasion - which sees aliens pay a visit, and is reflected in many of the new locations - including Believer Beach and Corny Complex.

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.

Fortnite new map image and changes at a glance

Fortnite's Season 7 map is largely familiar to previous seasons, with some new named locations adopting the alien theme, and once again, a change to the central point of the map.

The new Season 7 map looks like this:

The map for Fortnite Chapter 7.

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

  • Corny Complex (previously Colossal Crops)
  • Believer Beach (previously Sweaty Sands)

There are, of course, other changes - including some new landmarks which aren't named on the map, such as The Aftermath in the very centre of the map, which was previously The Spire:


Recent new quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.
