More Fortnite Dig Sites Discovered


Fortnite Dig excavation Sites

New excavation sites are possible signs of major changes set to occur to the Fortnite Season 8 map.  

A fenced digging site was added to the Fortnite map with the introduction of update v8.20. A fenced off site, was first located just west of Paradise Palms. Thre excavators sat on top of a number of large rocks stuffed on top of what seemed to be a deeper hole. Players quickly noticed the rocks could be destroyed as pickaxing them would drop the rock’s health.

It first seemed like a long task, as the estimated health to break all the rocks was 5,000,000 HP. However, as soon as millions of players found out about them and worked to break them, the rocks were destroyed inside of 24 hours. Hidden under the rocks was a geyser.

New digging has begun at the center of the divot. Here is a look at the center of the divot before and after. Looking at the center of the dug out hole, at large anchor can be seen at the bottom of the rubble.
