July 30 update Fortnite: what changed?
The next to last water level decrease took place today, July 30, bringing the Season 3 map a whole lot closer to what it looked like during Season 2. Sure, we have some fresh POIs, but all the places that have surfaced within the duration of this year were there to begin with — at least, up to now.
The most apparent change in this upgrade has been that the lowering of the water levels at Sweaty Sands. This was among the places that was shielded by No Sweat Insurance — so it’s always been a workable landing place. Now, the place will look somewhat more comfortable. The buried treasure on the shore is, once again, attainable for gamers that wish to go digging for loot.

Camp Cod also undergone some drainage. It poked its suggestion from the water a week, but now’s water level change brought it 100 percent back to normal. A great deal of the area shows signs of the flood, but the chests have returned to where they had been and it, again, makes for an great place to land in Arena Mode.
Surprisingly, The Rig seems to have lost some territory with this update. The only island that is left from the original Rig is the one that houses the vault.
The Shark is back, however, it is in shambles. You can land there for some decent loot, but it’s a far cry from how it was back in Season 2. RIP Skye and Ollie. It was a fun ride with you two.
There have been a few smaller map changes also. The ship houses on the shore to the south of Holly Hedges have returned, The Fortilla appears to have moved, slightly, and another gas station has popped-up at Sweaty Sands.
We are, apparently, only a couple of days away in the Atlantis POI coming to the game. Based on statistics miners, this should occur on August 1, which could be when we view automobiles as well — but this is most likely wishful thinking. We’ll keep you posted if the last water levels vary on August 1.
