The floating island is continuing its reign of terror on the Fortnite: Battle Royale map with another rune activation.

The rune located south of Retail Row has been impacted. The symbol has been ripped up from the ground and is floating below the island. This is the fourth Corrupted Area affected by Loot Lake island, which began its movement more than a week ago.

Since Sept. 30, the island has activated four runes, including today. The island’s first target was near Pleasant Park. Next, it was Shifty Shafts. And on Oct. 6, the rune northwest of Fatal Fields began the transformation we’ve seen at each of the affected Corrupted Areas.

In addition to the the wind vortex pushing the actual rune symbol out of the ground, volcanic pits appear on the ground, and they can launch you into the air. The cube, which is embedded below Loot Lake island, also seems to be expanding across the actual floating island.

Each time a rune has been activated, more and larger pieces of the cube have shown up in the house and underground portion of the floating island. In the beginning of its movement, the cube had very little presence above ground level, but it now has several layers throughout the house.

If the island sticks to its current pattern, the Retail Row rune will be the main focus for several days before the symbol resets in the ground and the island begins moving toward another Corrupted Area.
