Zone Wars

FortniteSeason 4 is well underway, and it's safe to say we're loving the new Marvel-themed content!

Season 5 is set to start on 30 November 2020, and there are some features we'd like to see added to the game.

Old Map Returning

One of the major complaints of Chapter 2 is the new map.

DUSTY DEPOT - Will we return to this iconic location in Season 5?

Time and time again we've seen both the competitive and casual community begging Epic to bring back the old map.

We'd love to see the return of this map, as it would bring a host of old locations with it.

The current land has little verticality spread throughout the map and is definitely missing that aspect of the game.

This change is unlikely to happen but could bring back a major part of the old community.

Graphical Update

With the new Chapter, we also got a new engine. This changes the way the game looks and feels.

Unfortunately, many fans of the game are disappointed with the changes, made and it seems like a downgrade from the graphics we had.

Luckily, Epic is adding new features like Ray Tracing to improve the way Fortnite looks.

A graphical update is possible, especially if Season 5 is the end of Chapter 2!

New Rotation Tools

Epic has done a great job of implementing old and new rotational tools in Chapter 2.

BACKROADS - Use the Cars in Fortnite to move around the map with speed!

The competitive Fortnite community still feel Fortnite is lacking in rotational utility.

We'd like to see an increase in drop rate for these tools to allow for fast paced gameplay.

With the larger map, this may also be a good option for slower-paced players looking to play the edge of the storm.

At the end of Chapter 1, we had a plethora of options when it came to rotation and movement, so Epic could easily bring some items back from the vault!

Siphon outside of Arena

When Siphon was originally added in Season 7, players loved the new mechanic.

BE THE BEST - Challenge the rest of the world in tournaments and arena!

This was unfortunately removed later in Season 8 but still remains in the Arena game modes.

Siphon gives players additional health and materials after each kill allowing top tier players to keep their momentum.

Overall, this gives every player a more balanced experience and removes some of the RNG (Random Number Generator) that's present in battle royale games.

Zone Wars

Zone Wars was a game mode added at the start of the new Chapter and gave players a new fast-paced experience.

This game mode allowed players to practice their end game skills without needing to play full matches.

As of now, you can still play Zone Wars, but only on custom made matches in the Creative game mode.

If Zone Wars came back as an official game mode, it would make practising those late-game skills easier.
