Fortnite Season 7 Map Guide: Believer Beach, Corny Complex, More
Fortnite Season 7 is here. It is time for the next iteration of the current Chapter 2 of battle royale. We are now more than halfway through the current chapter of the game. It is time for Epic Games to shake everything up with the Fortnite Season 7 map.
Fortnite Season 7 Map Is Here
With the launch of the new season, by the time you are reading this, there is a lot of new content for you to check out. Much of the expected content is here, like the new battle pass, weapons, and more, all of this adding up to a brand new set of content.
The new season, known as Invasion, is a bit of a step up from the Primal season in general content, but it does continue what that game did when it comes to the new Fortnite Season 7 map. The island is not changed from a glance that much, which could be disappointing to some players.
Like the Season 6 map, the Invasion Fortnite Season 7 map only has a couple of new locations that you can visit in this new season. There are fewer new points of interest in this season than at the launch of Season 6, which is not that great.
Season 6 saw Boney Burbs, The Spire, and Colossal Crops, but this season has only two new points of interest in total. That said, much of the Fortnite Season 7 map changes that have happened are relegated to landmark locations.
If you consider that, the Fortnite Season 7 map is a lot more intense than first expected. As such, there is a lot to break down this time around, so let us begin with the new locations that have launched in this brand new season of Fortnite battle royale.
New Location: Believer Beach
First and foremost, we have the first new location that is brand new this time around, Believer Beach. Like the other “new” location in this season, it is largely the same as its predecessor but is just a change in the name and some of the areas you will find there.
Believer Beach is the former spot where the popular Sweaty Sands destination was found. One of the few major cities on the Chapter 2 island has remained steady throughout the six past seasons to stay the same with only a few changes here and there.
However, that is all different with the Fortnite Season 7 map, as we now have Believer Beach instead of Sweaty Sands. Unfortunately, you should not let the name fool you, as this location is, by and large, the same as the beachfront city that we have known and loved for a while now.
Believer Beach is just a more alien-loving focus on the Sweaty Sands city that was there before. As you may already know, the new season is called Invasion and features an alien mothership hovering across the island. As such, the alien hordes are attacking this beloved island.
It seems that this city has accepted our new alien overlords and is welcoming them there when it comes to Believer Beach. You can find a lot of alien-themed items here, like the bounce pads that let you go up in the air and glide to your next destination and the posters at the skatepark.
Overall, though, Believer Beach does feel like an unnecessary change in the name of Sweaty Sands when it could have just stayed the same location but with these added features to it. On the one hand, it is great that the city largely remains the same, but it may be disappointing for players looking for something more dramatic to warrant unlocking this point of interest on the map again.
New: Corny Complex
The other new location this time around on the Fortnite Season 7 map is in a similar situation to Believer Beach. This one is called Corny Complex, and you can likely guess where it is found. That’s right; Corny Complex replaces the Colossal Crops destination on the island in Season 6.
For some odd reason, this place has just not stuck with a name and theme for the majority of Chapter 2 now. It has changed every season for the last several ones and now it is known as Corny Complex. In general, it has changed much more than Believer Beach, though.
You can find Corny Complex in the same general area as always, just northeast of the central part of the island where The Spire used to be (more on that in a moment). You will find here that this is a more stereotypical rural farm area, even more so than Frenzy Farm in the past.
Corny Complex is Frenzy Farm and Colossal Crops without the mansion and towering Primal locations that defined those two. In many ways, it feels like a return to the Fatal Fields-style named location that we used to have back in the day.
You will find the usual crop fields, barns, and lots and lots of farming surrounding this area. Perhaps the more generic feel to Corny Complex is the whole alien motif going on this season to tackle those cliche aliens creating crop circles and all that.
New Landmark Locations
While that is the bulk of the new major points of interest on the Fortnite Season 7 map, there is more than that on the island this time. It is just that these new areas are landmark locations, rather than the main named locations that we can see more clearly on the map.
There are several new landmark locations on the island that you can find. You will see a lot of grayed-out areas when you first jump into a match because of them. Because of the huge changes from the Primal season’s environment to this one, there are now purple alien-infected areas around the island.
These locations are where you can find more of the alien-specific items and resources in this season that are worth checking out. Unfortunately, there is no specific alien location in this season like there were major Primal areas in Season 6.
That said, one of the huge focuses this time around is on the IO, a group of soldiers who are fighting back against the alien invasion. As such, they have set up some new bases for players to check out and loot when they jump into battle royale matches.
Many of them are satellite dish bases. They are huge compared to the usual landmark base, with several buildings and NPCs to fight here. They are worth checking out for the awesome weapons that you can get from the IO guards found at these destinations. There are several on the island, some of which are in remote destinations that have not been used before, like Believer Beach and more.
What’s Gone From Season 6
Speaking of the base landmarks on the island now, there is something that should be addressed: the areas that are gone from the Primal season now. No longer will you find the picturesque autumn-colored areas that were filled to the brim with wildlife as they are gone now.
Instead, the island has mostly returned to the green aesthetic that it had before in the middle of the map, except for the few purple alien areas and the very center. The Spire and its town are gone now, seemingly taken by the alien ship for unknown reasons and replaced by the alien-infested area.
All of the named locations are gone, except for Boney Burbs that has stuck around for the time being. Interestingly enough, the Stealthy Stronghold location that was the only one remaining from Season 5 has been removed, too, as a main point of interest.
This location still exists but has now been demoted to the landmark position on the island and had some changes in the process. It is now home to one of the main dish bases for the IO and feels more interesting than ever before, making us wonder why it is no longer a named location.
Where to Find Flying Saucers
As mentioned, many alien items and features are now available on the island. One of the most important ones is a brand new vehicle that you can find on the flying saucer on the island. Similar to the mechs from Chapter 1, this is an aggressive vehicle meant for fighting.
The flying saucers can float up into the sky and zapping down below at the enemies that are unlucky enough to be in its firing range. It can also pull up large objects that can then be thrown at enemies in the battle royale matches.
It is a powerful vehicle that can change up the meta entirely in Season 7 but does come with caveats. For one, it is not exactly the easiest to control and/or aim with, so some players may need some time with it to be able to figure out how to use it properly in combat.
Furthermore, there are very few flying saucers that you can find on the island. For now, it seems that the locations for the flying saucers seem to be tied to the named locations that have their names on the map glowing purple to indicate the alien attack at that spot in the match.
As far as we know, the locations of the purple glowing points of interest will change at times so that it is not focusing on only the same locations every time you hop into a match.
What We Hope to See in the Future
Without a doubt, the Fortnite Season 7 map is a detailed one that has some major changes from the previous season. Though the map changes are minimal from a visual standpoint of just looking at the map in a match, there is the likelihood that these are not the only changes.
After all, Epic Games has already promised that we will get more content in the future with the Superman release that is set to happen in about two months. That release is very far away, leading us to believe that there will be more map changes between now and then or at that time.
We are likely in for a very long season of Fortnite, so it makes sense to save some map changes for down the road. As for what those changes could be, there are a couple of solid candidates. For one, we could see the release of a new named location to complement the two that we have now.
Two is just not enough for a season. We suspect that there is one more coming in the future, perhaps, like a Metropolis at Boney Burbs or something of the sort. There is even the chance to get an entire alien town or area, like where The Spire used to be.
Furthermore, we imagine that the influence of the aliens will extend beyond just the little that we see on the map for now. The season’s trailer excites this war with the aliens, but there is such little evidence of them at the launch of Season 7, so we hope that the purple areas will expand and encompass more of the island as time goes on.
