The Coral Castle POI went through some major map changes in the new patch of Fortnite Season 7, and this has caused a ton of controversy in the community.

Epic Games are always looking for ways to keep Fortnite fresh. They do this by introducing major crossovers, new weapons, new mechanics or even changing up the map.

After the 17.40 patch, the Coral Castle POI looks completely different. While map changes aren’t anything new to this game, this particular change hasn’t sat well with many members of the Fortnite community.

Reddit user Rifted-06 brought up the abduction of Coral Castle in the Fortnite: Battle Royale subreddit, claiming that the POI is now “even worse than it was before it was abducted.”

While it was previously surrounded by water, the battlegrounds of Coral Castle look completely different after the alien invasion. Much of the water and loot were removed in the update patch.

This change has proven to be controversial, and the Fortnite community is divided about it. Some players aren’t happy to see these changes, while aren’t concerned too much about them.

The Coral Castle POI was a point of contention for Fortnite players long before its abduction in the 17.40 update patch. “I prefer it just being erased from existence,” wrote one user.

With Season 8 fast approaching, a few players started forming their own theories about what might really be going on. “I’m betting that there are new POIs that are going into these places next season,” said one comment.

It remains to be seen what exactly Epic Games have planned for Coral Castle, but hopefully, we’ll know more soon enough. For more Fortnite, check out how to complete all the Week 12 Legendary Quests.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

One of the most enjoyable things to do in Fortnite is driving cars. However when you wreck a car, here’s how you can flip it back upright.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

Fortnite players have their fair share of fun around the island while fighting for their survival. Cars have been a vital element of that fun as players cause carnage around the island while they drive. Here’s how to flip a car in Fortnite to get it back on track.

Cars have been one of the most popular vehicles in Fortnite. Before they were introduced, players were just breaking them to harvest materials as cars were just a mere prop in the game.

But ever since cars became a part of the island as a vehicle, players have been driving around the island, fueling their cars up, tuning into radio stations, modding them, and eliminating their enemies by driving past them.

However, sometimes when players make a wrong turn or drive the car up a ramp or a hill, it tends to get overturned and wrecked. To bring it back to its original state, here’s how you can flip a car in Fortnite.

Flipped Car in Fortnite

Flipping a car in Fortnite Season 3 is pretty simple. All you need to do is either find an overturned car or you can overturn one yourself. You can either run it off a hilltop or build a ramp and drive off it to do the same.

Once it’s overturned, here’s how you can flip it back on its wheels:

  1. Approach the overturned vehicle.
  2. Press the interact button on your keyboard (E by default), or controller (Square on PlayStation and X on Xbox) to flip the car.
  3. And you’re done! You have successfully flipped a car and it’s ready for you to drive.

However, you need to be mindful of your surroundings as your nearby opponents can hear you start and drive a car around them. So get those driving gloves on and drive as fast as you can to leave your opponents in the storm.


Apart from cars, other vehicles like Ballers and the Armored Battle Bus are currently in-game as well. You can use these to roam around the island as you like and have some fun as No Sweat Summer comes to a close in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

First-person mode could finally come to Fortnite in Chapter 3, Season 4

Fortnite leaks have revealed that Epic Games might add a first-person mode to the battle royale in Chapter 3, Season 4.

According to Fortnite leaks, Epic Games might be planning to finally bring a first-person mode to the battle royale title when the Chapter 3, Season 4 update goes live.

Fortnite has evolved a lot since it first arrived in 2017, with Epic Games frequently updating it with new unlockable skins along with significant changes such as the addition of a No-Build mode.

Fans have been eager for the developers to add a first-person mode to the battle royale title, and now it seems that the long-awaited mode may finally arrive in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4.

Fortnite has always featured third-person view, and the closest players have ever gotten to a first-person is on the first-person Box Fights map. However, notable leaker ‘HYPEX’ claims that this is about to change.

After claiming that a first-person game mode was in early development, the leaker tweeted on July 18 that the developers updated it “quite a few times.” They also showed a concept image of what this mode may look like.

HYPEX then claimed that this mode could “possibly release in Season 4.” This mode will be different from the game’s aim-down sight mechanic since the camera will operate in first-person even when you’re not aiming.

While this sounds exciting, it’s worth noting that this information has yet to be officially verified by Epic Games themselves, so take this leak with a grain of salt until we get an official announcement.

However, since one of the Box Fight maps in the game already features a first-person view, it’s entirely possible that the devs could add a separate mode for it in the upcoming seasonal update.
