ISLAND VIBES: The latest season of Fortnite is the perfect island retreat for sun-deprived gamers!

Many of the locations that players have learned to love are now entirely submerged, and we've heard that the map will continue to evolve as the season progresses.

Whirlpool at The Fortilla

The Fortilla is a collection of islands which are connected together with zipline, located south of Holly Hedges and to the west of the Rickety Rig.

EASY TO FIND: You’ll find this string of islands in the bottom left corner of the map

The Fortilla sits pretty much where Slurpy Swamp once was, but now looks completely different - and this is where you will find a giant whirlpool!

Whirlpools are easy to spot from the sky, so ensure you have your glider out while above The Fortilla and you should be able to see one and land directly in it.

Keep an eye out for enemies while you do this as they can spot you and shoot you out of the sky.

Completing the whirlpool at Fortilla challenge earns you the 'King of the Beach' loading screen, which features Aquaman riding on the back of sharks.
