We can almost wonder why Epic didn’t make this change sooner. Risky Reels earned the right to be represented in full letters on Fortnite players map — just like all the other POI.

This change has no direct impact on the game: Risky Reels hasn’t been better stocked with chests or items since Patch Notes 12.50. On the other hand, it could herald new events sitting there. Risky Reels has already been the location for short film screenings, and especially for the Star Wars event. This upgrade could suggest that this location will gain in significance in the coming weeks.

Fortnite Chapter 2 brought a distinction between named POI and unamed POI. Riksy Reels was until now considered an unamed POI, even though there were a lot of resources and chests to be found there.
