Fortnite Season 6 is officially here, and as always, that means the game’s map has undergone some serious changes. Three new POIs have been added to the island, while Guardian Spires have popped up across the Primal biome.
The Season 6 v16.00 update is packed full of new features, including weapon crafting and animal taming, but one of the most exciting things for Fortnite fans is the changes to the island.
Epic Games are aware that playing on the same map over and over again can cause fatigue, so with every seasonal update they add new points-of-interest to keep the map fresh, while removing locations that are boring or unpopular.
With the Season 6 update, the center of the map has been taken over by the Primal biome, a direct result of the Zero Crisis Finale event. Inside it, three new POIs have sprung up, along with six Guardian Spires. Here’s every Fortnite Season 6 map change.
Fortnite Season 6 Primal map
Fortnite’s map has undergone a pretty significant change, with the Primal biome reaching out from the middle of the island to cover a significant part of the map.
Six arms protrude from the center, with Guardian Spires found at the end of each one. Directly in the middle sits The Spire, where the Zero Point sits enclosed thanks to The Foundation.
The Zero Point used to sit in the middle of the island, and while it can still be found there, it’s now enclosed inside a massive tower built by The Foundation called The Spire.
Fortnite players can climb the tower to get the high ground on any enemy, while there are also some smaller buildings built around the base of The Spire where loot can be collected.
Colossal Coliseum was a fixture in Fortnite Season 5, but unfortunately for fans of the POI, it has now disappeared. Instead, a farm has taken its place known as Colossal Crops.
Only a few walls of the Coliseum remain standing, and with the buildings in this location fairly small and spread apart, this will be a tough place to remain hidden.
Primal Pond sits between The Spire and Misty Meadows, and is full of buildings and homes you can search through for loot.
There are also some tall buildings dotted around this location, so you’ll be able to get some verticality on your enemies should you find yourself in a gun fight.
There are six Guardian Spires in Fortnite Season 6, found at the end of the Primal wilderness arms that spread outwards from The Spire.
These are smaller versions of the central location, but be warned, they are protected by the Guardians, who are determined to protect their area and stop players from looting.
More map changes are being discovered by players all the time, so keep checking back as we continue to update this article with any others we find.

New leak claims Fortnite is adding another Warzone feature
Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to implement a feature from Warzone in the game.
Some new leaks have emerged which suggest that Epic Games will be adding the sliding mechanic from Call of Duty: Warzone to Fortnite in a future update.
Battle Royale titles are highly competitive, and fans often call for these games to take inspiration from each other. Apex Legends players want Warzone’s matchmaking, and Warzone fans want Halo: Infinite’s Battle Pass system.
These leaks came from notable data miner HYPEX, who claims that the Fortnite developers are working on a new movement type in the game. This will come with a few benefits for players.
“It will increase your FOV by 15 when you’re sliding and it will make your camera shake, with a cooldown of 2 seconds,” HYPEX tweeted. “I don’t know the release date or if it’s gonna be an item!”
This sliding movement has been a staple of both Apex Legends and Warzone, so it might provide to be an exciting addition to Fortnite.
It’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just a leak, and you should take this information with a grain of salt until Epic Games confirms this. If it’s true, then this might be an exciting change.
The developers could introduce a cooldown timer so that players don’t abuse this mechanic in combat. If it arrives in the game soon, then we will probably see some big changes in player tactics.
We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this. For more Fortnite, check out all the Bounty Board Locations in Season 8, and stay tuned to Charlie INTEL!
