Ranking all the different designs for The Block in Fortnite



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.

Fortnite leaks confirm Beerus, Goku, and Vegeta skins for Dragon Ball Z crossover in Chapter 3

Anime fans in the Fortnite community are waiting for the Dragon Ball Z crossover, and leaks have confirmed that it will bring in Beerus.



Fortnite Goku and Beerus skins

Fortnite v21.30 update introduced a ton of new content and the files now have more Dragon Ball Z elements. From skins for Beerus, Goku, and Vegeta to a Bulma reference, here’s everything we know so far.

Fortnite players were certainly shocked when they came across leaks regarding a Dragon Ball Z crossover. Both waves of the Naruto cosmetics were a massive hit in the Item Shop and it is evident that the developers now wish to capitalize on other popular anime series.

Leaks previously revealed that four skins will arrive in the first-ever Dragon Ball Z x Fortnite crossover, and one of them is going to be Beerus.

Fortnite is working on a Beerus skin for the Dragon Ball Z crossover

As per prominent leaker HYPEX, Epic Games is working on a purple skin codenamed ‘Cat’. For anyone who’s watched Dragon Ball Z, this isn’t a tough one to crack. Beerus, the god of destruction of Universe 7, perfectly fits this description.

With this, three skins have been confirmed for the upcoming DBZ crossover:

  • Goku
  • Vegeta
  • Beerus

The fourth skin will be a female character according to leaks, and it is safe to assume that it will be Bulma.

Following the v21.30 update, HYPEX discovered that one of the Fortnite x DBZ quests will have a beach umbrella setup. This could be a reference to many things like the Kame House, Bulma, or Beerus but it is too early to confirm it.

The Creative Stamina item that started all the rumors about the crossover will also be available on the map. It might be a part of some quests or the developers might just tease the crossover through it.

Last but not least, the Attack Pods from Dragonball will arrive as Gliders in Fortnite. The 21.30 patch added a glider texture with a striking resemblance to these pods and even its codename, StaminaVigor, suggests that it is related to DBZ.

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover to have a special event screen, quests, and rewards

It seems like the DBZ crossover will be quite similar to Naruto. Players can look forward to taking part in challenges that will grant them free DBZ-themed skins. Obviously, this will be accompanied by Goku, Vegeta, and Beerus outfits in the Item Shop.

The official website for the DBZ crossover is in the works. It should become functional by August, which is also when Epic Games will officially announce the collaboration.

As of now, this is everything we know about the upcoming DBZ x Fortnite crossover. The next update for Chapter 3 Season 3 will be out after four weeks, and until then, players can enjoy the new summer-themed content.

Fortnite update v21.30 patch notes: No Sweat Summer event, Prime Shotgun, more

Fortnite v21.30 is finally here. From the No Sweat Summer event to new POIs to weapons, here’s everything that arrived with it.



Fortnite v21.30 summer event art

Ahead of the developers’ summer break, Fortnite has released the v21.30 update. It has arrived with the No Sweat Summer event, map changes like Daily Bloomgle, new Prime Shotgun, and more.

The hype for Fortnite v21.30 was sky-scraping because Epic Games will soon go on a break till the second week of August. This means that the battle royale title won’t experience any live changes for the upcoming weeks, and the latest update should ensure that the community doesn’t get bored.

Fortnite v21.30 brings in a No Sweat Insurance NPC, summer-themed POI, and new No Sweat Summer event quests

Fortnite players desperately wanted to celebrate the summer in battle royale modes this time. Luckily, the No Sweat Summer event is here with the v21.30 update.

No Sweat Insurance quests will replace the Vibin quests for the next four weeks as the Scientist’ research regarding the Reality Tree will be halted temporarily.

No Sweat Summer quests

The latest No Sweat Summer quests in Fortnite are:

  • Land after jumping from the Battle Bus during the No Sweat Summer event
  • Carry the No Sweat sign and place it at a sponsorship location
  • Complete a lap around the boat race circuit after the starting countdown
  • Make a Character dance to a Boogie Bom
  • Emote at different promotional dance floor locations
  • Ring doorbells until they break
  • Catch 3 seconds of air while driving a Motorboat
  • Remove No Sweat signs from recalled products
  • Place the No Sweat signs in an official bin
  • Pop No Sweat Summer inflatable objects
  • Jump on umbrellas along the beach
  • Kick a beach ball and kick a giant beach ball
  • Fire off the Firework Flare Gun at Mighty Monument or Tilted Towers
  • Bust through doors in different neighborhoods
  • Destroy large sea buoys with Motorboat Missiles

These quests will grant 15k XP each and a new Sweaty Sailer umbrella glider will be a free reward for completing them. The quests also indicate that the Boogie Bombs will return soon. The goofy item has been a fan-favorite for ages, and it makes perfect sense for it to return during a Vibin’ themed season.

New summer-themed NPCs will now roam around the island. These include:

  • Unpeely
  • Beach Bomber
  • Summer Drift
  • The Underwriter
  • Boardwalk Ruby

The Underwriter is the newest NPC in Fortnite and represents the New Sweat Insurance building from Tilted Towers. In contrast, Unpeely, Beach Bomber, and Boardwalk Ruby are famous characters who always return during the summer.

Fortnite community to vote for Tilted Tower buildings through Rebuild the Block quests

The restoration of Tilted Towers began in Chapter 3 Season 3. Fortnite asked map builders to come up with their best building designs and nine buildings have made the cut.

In the coming weeks, players will donate bars for the construction projects in Tilted Towers. The building design with the most votes will officially become a part of the POI. This will also help players in completing the Rebuild The Block quests:

  • Donate Bars voting for construction projects on The Block
  • Survive Storm Phases during the Rebuild the Block Event
  • Eliminate enemy players during the Rebuild the Block Event
  • Complete Rebuild the Block quest stages (3/7/12).

It is clear that we’ll witness new Rebuild The Block quests every week and the developers are yet to reveal the subsequent stages.

To be fair, the XP crisis in Chapter 3 Season 3 could come to an end now as every Rebuild The Block quest will reward players with 14,000 XP.

New Prime Shotgun and consumable Ice-Cream item enter the loot pool with Fortnite v21.30

A brand-new Prime Shotgun will be available in chests, supply drops, and floor loot with v21.30. The stats of this weapon at Rare rarity are:

  • DPS-88
  • Reload Time-4.5
  • Spread-1
  • Clip size– 4
  • Headshot damage– 138
  • Fire Rate– 1.05

Leaks have revealed that the Prime Shotgun is an explosive weapon with a surprisingly long range for a shotgun. Its damage output is brilliant and the slow fire rate seems to be the only downside.

New consumable items have been added in the form of Ice Cones. These include:

  • Lil Whip’s Special Serve for Health and Shield
  • Guzzling Icecream Cone which slowly heals health
  • Frozen Iceream Cone for Health and it makes things slippery
  • Icecream Cone for Health
  • Spicy Icecream Cone for Health and Shield

Interestingly, the files of the Burst SMG have been updated as well and it might return soon.

Daily Bugle changes to Daily Bloomgle in Fortnite v21.30 and other map changes

Epic Games has continued the amazing map changes in Chapter 3 Season 3 with the latest update. Daily Bugle, under the effect of the Reality Tree, is now called Daily Bloomgle. As usual, it will now switch between themes based on Neo Tilted, Coral Castle, Colossal Coliseum, and more.

The Reality Tree will continue to grow and after Daily Bugle, it’ll reach Condo Canyon.

Last but not least, a summer-themed stage will be set up on the island for No Sweat Summer. This is where players can expect to complete their event-based quests and earn a ton of XP.

Hotfix updates will be released weekly but no major Fortnite updates will arrive for almost a month now. The developers have already added weekly quests till Week 10, and the Dragon Ball Z crossover will be released after the break.

Fortnite Indiana Jones quests: How to find the secret door in Shuffled Shrines

Fortnite players can finally unlock Indiana Jones with v21.20. They must find the secret door in Shuffled Shrines and here’s a guide for it.



Indiana Jones in Fortnite

The Indiana Jones quests are finally here in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Here’s how you can find the secret door past the main chamber in Shuffled Shrines.

While players were expecting Fortnite v21.20 to revolve around No Sweat Summer, it has turned out to be all about Indiana Jones. The secret skin for this season’s Battle Pass is now unlockable through challenges and a brand new POI called Shuffled Shrines has been added to the map.

The Shuffled Shrines puzzle in Fortnite allows players to enter the secret door

First and foremost, you must visit the brand new Shuffled Shrines POI on the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 island. It is located south of Sanctuary, and has been marked in the image below:

After landing, you have to search the location for clues and find four runes on each edge of Shuffled Shrines. They will display one of these Red, Blue, and Yellow symbols:

The runes scattered in Shuffled Shrines will have such symbols (Image via YouTube/ChillNikov)

The runes (clues) will be scattered across Shuffled Shrines and their symbol resets every game. Hence, you should not try copying the patterns that worked for others.

It is important to find the fure runes and then head to the middle of Shuffled Shrines where you will find four interactive runes in front of a door.

Solving the puzzle is basically a game of hit-and-miss. You have to rotate the runes according to the clues. To open the door, the symbols on the runes in front of the door should be identical to the ones that are scattered around Shuffled Shrines.

Apparently, the symbol of the runes on the left should match with the rune located in the southwest corner of Shuffled Shrine. Similarly, the one placed second from the left should match with the rune located on the top right corner (Northwest).

After solving the puzzle correctly, the main chamber should open. However, be careful because the path is full of traps.

Where is the secret door past the main chamber in Shuffled Shrine

It is important to note that the challenge doesn’t complete when you solve the puzzle and enter the main chamber. There’s an artifact inside that grants 250 Gold Bars, but more importantly, there’s a secret door to the right of this artifact. The entrance is hidden by green bushes.

Players can enter this area and find two chests inside which should complete the Indiana Jones challenge. This quest will not only provide XP, but will help in unlocking the character’s outfit and a selectable style.

Finding the secret door past the main chamber is clearly more complex than any of the challenges we’ve ever seen in Fortnite. The puzzles and the traps are already too harsh but before that, players must fight a ton of opponents who’ll land to complete the same quest.
