What exactly was changed? Each section below focuses on a new area on the map or an existing one that has changed. If you catch anything we missed, feel free to add it to the list by hitting the Edit Page button at the top!
The biggest and most obvious change is the destruction of Dusty Depot and its reinvention into Dusty Divot. The meteor has hit and left a giant crater at the center of the map. Some time has passed between the two seasons as there is now some kind of testing site for the leftover meteor debris.
Chests can be found in the guard towers, inside crates, and inside the small testing rooms. You can even go back to the old Dusty Depot and find old and new areas for loot.
And be careful. This area is new so it’s going to be filled with other players. If you want to keep out of the crowds, consider gliding somewhere else!
Rusty Reels is a brand new location that was not created by the almighty meteor. There’s a big focus on movie magic this season and Rusty Reels seems to be the headquarters for all things filiming. It’s a drive-in theater, complete with the big screen, eating areas, and even a small filming room.
Sadly, Rusty Reels was not immune to the meteors that hit and has a decent sized crater at its center. At least this gives you the chance for some anti-gravity!
A new mansion was added to the east side of the map, southeast of Lonely Lodge. It’s a nice addition that adds chests and loot to an area that was simply empty before, but there’s an awesome secret for those that stick around and search the basement.
Heading downstairs will lead you to a secret lair, complete with a meeting table, computers, and a control system. There’s even an easy escape out the side of the cliff! The location is far from the center of the map, but it’s absolutely worth the trip!
EditSecret Villain’s Lair
You can’t let the good guys be the only ones with a cool lair. On the west side of the map, east of Snobby Shores, is a tall mountain. On the west side of the mountain is very cool lair that blends into the side of the cliff.
You’ll have to land on the mountain or build up to check out the lair for yourself. Just like the other lair, this one has a control system, a garage, and even a living quarters. The big difference here is that this lair is equipped with a massive nuke. Is this our first hint at Season 5?
EditTilted Towers Still Stands
One of the more surprising changes is what’s new in Tilted Towers. For most of Season 3, fans speculated that the meteor would hit this popular zone, but Titled Towers ultimately went unscathed for the most part. Unless you liked the building in the center with the three floors. Then you’ll you’ll probably disappointed.
With half of one building gone, the only other change is the new crater. This will give players access to the hop rocks, granting anyone who grabs one anti-gravity for a short time.
EditAnother Secret Base
Head over to Salty Springs and enter the blue house on the east side of town. Head down the stairs to enter the basement but take note that the stairs keep going. Head down and enter the third basement to find a secret base with a control system and a gym.
While the prison in the southeastern part of the map was never a named location, it was still a great source of loot and chests. Apparently that needed to change as a meteor hit the main building of the prison, destroying a majority of the jail cells and the cafeteria area.
This change doesn’t offer any kind of advantage, but it’s worth pointing out. The pizza restaurant at Tomato Town received a nice big sign. It doesn’t add any loot or chests to the area but it does spice up the area a bit.
EditMore to Do in Moisty Mire
A movie production company has moved into Moisty Mire. Before the update, the area was known for its great resource of wood and the neat tree house in the middle. Now it has stages, production areas, a place to eat, and even a place to relax.
With these changes come more opportunities for loot and chests, but some of the trees that made this area so likable have been removed. Is the trade off worth it?
EditA New Cabin
To the west of Shifty Shafts are two buildings. One of them is a house and the other is a medium sized shack. As of the start of Season 4, this is no longer the case. While the house is still there, the shack has been updated into two story log cabin. More loot and chests!
EditThe Motel Update
Not much has changed at the motel, but the small differences are worth noting. A small meteor crashed through the motel sign and hit the bus that used to sit in the parking lot. That bus has now slammed into motel and the impact left a small crater.
Thanks to the meteor that created the giant crater in the center of the map, new darker rocks have been thrown out of the earth and onto the surface. Most of these can be found around the crater and they help give you a place to cover when you’re in the big open fields.
One landed in Loot Lake, giving you a place to run to if you’re stuck in the water. Two chests can also spawn at this rock.
Besides the giant crater that created Dusty Divot, several smaller craters have been left scattered across the map. Trucks and cars surrounding the craters sometimes have chests while the craters themselves have the hop rocks that will give you brief anti-gravity abilities. We’ve already covered the craters at Tilted Towers, the prison, Risky Reels, and the motel, so here are the remaining craters.
East of Fatal Fields.
East of Junk Junction.
South of Haunted Hills.
East of Retail Row.
EditA New Filming Location
If you ever visited Junk Junction in the northwestern part of the map, it’s likely that you visited the two houses to the east of the scrapyard. Go there during Season 4 and you’ll notice that it has changed. Gone are the houses and instead you’ll find two small brick sheds and a large warehouse. Inside the warehouse is what looks like a filming setup. There area lights and cameras and the set looks like the inside of a house.
