The Fortnite Volcano undoubtedly holds many mysteries and secrets, here is a complete Volcano guide with everything you need to know.
Fortnite Season 8 Pirate theme comes with the addition of a new volcano that has completely revamped the North East side of the map. Although the Ice Biome remains for now, placing both maps side by side shows how much change is occurring for the start of Season 8.
Fortnite Season 8 to revolve around the Volcano
Although new locations and items have been added, there is no doubt the new volcano is the most intriguing. Sitting on the complete opposite side of Polar Peak, a king’s thrown is located inside the main entrance. A possible sign of a future event or map changes originating from it. Here is a complete breakdown of everything you need to know about the Volcano.
With V8.00, there are currently 4 entrances into the Volcano. Because it’s lava seems very active, there is no telling if more fissures or entrances will form as Season 8 moves forward. (99% sure things will change).
The Main entrance, sits on the south side, where lava is flowing out, running its way down under the bridge. The Fire King’s thrown shows perfectly aligned with the main entrance.
Two smaller entrances can be found, and glided into, on the East and West side of the Volcano.
Finally, the top entrance of the Volcano, which needs to be push glided into.
Volcano Loot and Chest Locations
Numerous loot can be found spread around the outskirts of the volcano. However, there is a maximum of 9 chests that can be found at the entrances and inside the actual volcano.
The top of the volcano has a platform directly at the entrance of its main vent. There is total of 2 chests that can be found at this location.
Inside the Volcano a total of 7 chests can be found. 2 chests on each side of the Volcano and 3 at the King’s throne.
The King’s Throne can contain a maximum of 3 chests
Two serpent eggs can be found at the sides of the fire king’s throne. During the Fortnite Season 8 teaser period, Epic clearly shows a snake like serpent and used slogans stating that a creature lurks. The mysterious eggs were also found in the dungeon of Polar Peak. The eggs contain the exact same serpent meshing as the ones found at Polar Peak.
Although nothing is confirmed, there is no doubt that Season 8 will see a clash of both, Ice and Fire Kings. Their thrones are shown below.
Volcano Lava Flow
With Fortnite Season 8’s first update comes with only one fissure that is spewing lava. The south side entrance has lava running south, ending right under the bridge below where Tomato Temple once stood.
The remaining Temple is located directly above where the volcano lava ends:
Next Season 8 Map Changes
There is zero chance that a whole Fortnite season will go by with no in-season changes. There are 2 other side fissures to the current Volcano and lava is halted under tomato temple. The current lava trajectory is heading north, in the direction of the new Lazy Lagoon.
It’s important to keep track of a new map from the start of a season to help determine what changes can be expected later on. As the map continues to evolve, it is sometimes important to fall back of how the map looked when first released. This is the first version of Season’s 8 Volcano.
Only time will tell what new changes are in store for all Fortnite fans, Game Life will continue to update you as major events unfold.
