Tilted Towers is back in Fortnite

Tilted Towers Fortnite

This place used to justify its own announcements

The Tilted Towers Fortnite update is out: and no it’s not a misnomer. This is Tilted Towers coming back in the current Chapter 3 Season 1.

For those of you not in the know, Tilted Towers is a famous/infamous location in Fortnite that stuck around for a long time, and divided the playerbase. The gist is that it became a super popular central location, allowing high-risk-high-reward firefights. But it also impacted the rest of the map, as many matches would center around it.

Part of the storyline involving the new inverted island in Chapter 3 includes the landscape “thawing out,” and now everyone’s favorite named location, Tilted Towers, is back.

Version 19.10 has a few other tricks up its sleeve too. “Klombos,” which are basically a kind of dragon, are in. They’re a new type of wildlife, and “are peaceful unless provoked.” Their blowholes can also help you ascend into the sky, and they “sneeze out items.” The grenade launcher is also back in action, and the stinger SMG and the MK-Seven Assault Rifle (the one that zooms) have been nerfed a bit damage-wise, while the auto shotgun had its reload speed increased.

You can find the rest of the minutiae below!
