Season 8 brings a new map change involving pirates arriving and the volcano we have been waiting for! The map changes for the season is pirates! There is a pirate ship in one of the new locations called Lazy Lagoon, which is a lagoon obviously. Lazy Lagoon features a small pirate town, docks, and a pirate ship. They have also added 7 pirate outposts all over the map! The volcano is very large, you can see it towering above all else in the Fortnite map. You can actually go into the volcano and you start gliding, but there is which is a lagoon obviously. Lazy Lagoon features a small pirate time town, docks, and a pirate ship. They have also added 7 pirate outposts all over the map! The volcano is very large, you can see it towering above a platform you can land on inside the volcano that has the Magma King’s throne! All around the volcano there are shoots of air called vents that make you glide up in the air. Don’t touch the lava! It takes 1 health per touch!
The storyline is getting interesting—the prisoner (who is the Magma King) was imprisoned by the Ice King because he was a threat to the Ice King’s power. That is the most logical explanation. And when the prisoner escaped he stole the Ice King’s dragon eggs, which you can now find in the volcano—aka The Prisoner’s home base.
An interesting fact is that they have added one legendary chest to the game! It contains a guaranteed legendary weapon, two items, 30-60 materials, and ammo for the weapon you get. It is located at the block, but there is no exact location because there are new blocks ever few weeks. Find a treasure map to find treasure chests with up to 6 legendary items!
The airplane vehicle has been vaulted and they have added a new vehicle to the game thats not so much for speed and transportation, but as a weapon. It’s the cannon! It fires cannonballs, or even players if you get inside. The cannonballs do 100 damage, but it takes a very long time to reload even though you have infinite ammo. Also the kick when you fire is MASSIVE! To use the cannon for transportation, use a volcano vent and when you are near the peak of your height, point the barrel at the ground and fire. You will fly extremely far!
There is another vehicle that is even newer than the cannon. It is the Baller! The Baller is a giant hamster ball with boosters and a grappler. It is so much fun to drive and it protects you from all sides, but there is a down side to the glass sphere. It only has 300 health which makes it pretty easy to destroy.
