We have indicated several times that the “event” may take place at the bottom of the map. Leakers mention it again.
A lot is known about the event, although some details are still unclear. Leakers talk about the cargo that players will have to plant directly in the mothership. The UFO is said to fall on the island and damage several spots.
The Misty Meadows, located at the bottom of the map, will be the location that the leakers believe will be damaged the most. Epic tested the version of the island with and without this location for a reason.
Misty Meadows in Fortnite
Epic for the test was removing Misty Meadows. There are two lines of code in the files directly indicating that the spot may simply disappear.
This is about S17, ie season 7. This would indicate that the location and the event itself will take place at the end of the season, not at the beginning of the next one. This is consistent with all leaks so far.
Of course, nothing can be taken for granted here as a standard. It’s just a leak that reveals developer testing. It is unknown how these tests went and what exactly Epic removed. Whether the entire spot or a part of it.
