We have a lot of cool Fortnite Creative codes lined up for you. Not sure what we mean? Well, Lego is for the rich. When you’re trying to build big, the dollar-to-brick ratio is out of this world with physical blocks, so we must turn to Fortnite to make blocky models of the Millennium Falcon for free. 

Fortnite’s Creative mode isn’t just some cheap Minecraft knock-off, either. With new biomes, structures, creative tools, and Fortnite island codes releasing every few days, Creative isn’t just a diverse bucket of blocks—it’s a block-filled sandbox with endless hours of potential fun. 

Plenty of talented creators have earned Epic’s blessing to have their creations shared and played by anyone, so long as you know the Fortnite Creative code required to head to their islands. We’ve sifted through the growing collection of cool stuff for easy reference here, so keep tabs on this page for regular updates. Here are our current favorites. Don’t forget we also have our favorite Fortnite horror map codes for the Halloween season.

If you’re unfamiliar with how to load an island, head into Fortnite Creative, walk up to a featured rift, and hold down the ‘Use’ key to bring up the code menu. Pop it in, let the island load, then walk into the rift to begin.

January 2021 Creative Codes

OVERTIME: Firefighter – 9586-7818-6104

You and three friends must don your firefighter hats to, what else, fight fires across four fun locations in a city seemingly besieged by random flames. Basically, you’ll run around throwing Chug bottles at rapidly growing fires, trying to maintain a certain level of control, or rescue someone before they’re consumed. You’ll definitely need friends for this one since it’s basically impossible alone.

Infernal Gun Game (Update) – 4078-4302-7748

An update of an older map, this gun game arena provides plenty of tight turns and hidden corridors that’ll make any combat encounter one to remember. Also, the portals are giant gaping chasms of alien teeth and flesh, and I just love that stuff.

Deadpool Yacht Gun Game – 2677-6600-4527

This map recreates season 2’s Deadpool Yacht in impressive detail. The winding hallways and multiple floors make for a great gun game map, offering up plenty of opportunities for ambushes and tense close-range fire fights. I love the little cat doors you have to crouch through that lead to what I assume is the play room of Kit, Meowscles son.

The Underworld Gun Game – 5719-7469-6732

Gun game is always a popular mode, so it all comes down to maps to make the difference. This dark subterranean arena mixes elements of gothic Doom architecture with wonderful lighting, or a lack thereof.

Titans: Rebirth – 1254-0562-2361

The Titans mode lets about 15 players choose from an impressively varied list of loadouts based on popular Fortnite characters, and then duke it out on a tight map that’s quickly being consumed by the storm. Will you go jetpack and landmines, stealthy rift portals, rocket launchers galore, or one of the other options?

Soccer Tournament – 9012-6909-9710

Hey, Epic owns Rocket League these days, so why not imitate it in Fortnite? This tight map does its best to mimic the layout of your average Rocket League arena, including speed boost pads and launch pads along the walls to keep the ball rolling. Even better, you can cram four teams into a bracket challenge.

Zaneth Part 3 | 7177-3928-2938

The Zaneth series is one of the best fully fledged narrative adventures in Fortnite’s creative mode. Part 3, which I guess is the final part, sees you jaunting through an island full of monsters and ancient evils. You’ll encounter a number of solid puzzles, but for me, the real draw is seeing how Spazy64 uses Fortnite’s tools to tell a coherent story.

Giant Gifts | 3837-4047-8371

A masterfully designed honey-I-shrunk-the-kids home with lots of Christmas flair. With everything being giant-sized, it makes for a great setup for hide-and-seek games, like hiding behind a fireplace or in a choo-choo train under the tree.

360 Snipers vs. Runners | 8211-7200-6960

It’s the classic snipers vs. runners format, where one side must navigate an obstacle course and the other must blast them from afar, with a circular twist. Runners must navigate an evolving circle of colorfully designed walls and ramps, and snipers must contend with constantly having to switch up their angle of attack. It’s the simple changes that often make the biggest impact.

Futuristic City Chaos Gungame | 1305-7325-6391

A solid gungame format mixed with a brightly lit neon city. It’s not quite Night City, but there’s extra-long sightlines and plenty of cars to blow up that’ll make you love dodging flying grenades.

Walking Dead Zombies | 4815-5387-2781

Much like Call of Duty’s zombie mode, you’ll defend against waves of undead. In between rounds, you can spend points to unlock a bunch of stuff. The best part is you’re in the huge farmhouse from The Walking Dead’s second season, complete with folksy home fixings.

Aether | 9328-9988-6647

A densely interweaving gun game map where your weapon rarity actually decreases with each kill. Capture points pop up every once in a while to encourage players to gather in the same space. I love the way this map blends natural rock and moss formations with dilapidated tech, lending a very pleasing post-post-apocalypse vibe to it all.

Minecraft 1v1 | 2544-4056-6706

Not quite a box fight, but definitely features the most famous boxes in video gaming: Minecraft blocks. You and a competitor will start off in the center of the map, race to grab an assortment of weapons, and then duke it out. You can make a tactical retreat to classic Minecraft areas, like — get this — a mine.

December Creative Codes

Less Buggy Than the Real Thing

Cybernite 2 | 5959-5776-7711

A significantly less buggy experience than the real Cyberpunk. Explore an impeccably designed bit of neon city streets trying to solve some puzzles, help out a few citizens, and avoid the watchful eyes of killer corpo bots.

Snowball Oneshot | 9252-5527-1967

The classic oneshot deathmatch formula, but set on an icy lake littered with massive snowballs that do splash damage. Who doesn’t love a little Yuletide sniping?

A Hobbit Hole – 2341-0879-7382

It’s dangerous business going out your front door. Thankfully, I never want to leave this gorgeously detailed Hobbit hole from the Lord of the Rings universe. A rounded door and windows punctuate a grassy hill and a peaceful river. Good for chilling out and smoking some Old Tobey.

Infinite Flappy Bird – 8991-7322-6083

Sure, Epic is fine with copying other games like Among Us, but the creative mode community is equally adept at making functional clones of other games. Remember Flappy Bird? Well, now he’s a Baller vehicle trying to avoid force field walls. It’s a simple diversion, but those are often the best ones.



Dojo Domination – 6691-1303-6550

A really beautiful dojo map with multiple buildings, some genuinely creative stonework, and enough interesting routes around the map to make capturing each point a thrill. Even better, each player picks a different loadout mirrored by the other team, and I’m always a sucker for smoke grenades.

Steampunk Zone Wars – 1524-7733-6910

There’s a fascinating side of Fortnite Creative where people manage to make normal-sized props into gigantic Honey I Shrunk the Kids landscapes. This kind of feels like that, super-sizing a number of things to give you the sense of being surrounded by larger-than-life machinery, including a giant quadripedal beast reminiscent of Howl’s Moving Castle. Truly striking stuff.

First-Person Gun Swap – 4048-7707-5260

One of the better first-person shooting experiences I’ve found in Fortnite. This dense and tightly wound arena wraps around a vault and provides a few surprising ways to get around your enemies, including hidey holes and vent shafts. The fact that weapons swap every 30 seconds just keeps things fresh.

It’s Another Mini BR! – 1730-6698-2927

Everybody loves a good biome, and this mini battle royale map has several of them, including icy tundras, dry deserts, ghoulish fortresses, and a dense campground forest. It’s a little flat, like a lot of custom maps are forced to be, but I appreciate the diversity on display, and you’ll have some good rounds with friends here. Even better, when I explored the map it felt like loot was plentiful, meaning everyone should have a fair shot at winning.

Phasmophobia – 1621-6784-4798

There’s no shortage of «_______ but Fortnite» creations, and this remake of Phasmophobia’s Tanglewood House definitely nails the original’s spooky multiplayer vibes. A ton of flickering lights, ghostly apparitions, and clues all lead your team to investigate and guess which type of spirit you’re truly dealing with. You know, I once saw a real jerk on Twitter (how unusual) who said you shouldn’t include your Minecraft levels in a job application. That guy is an idiot, and stuff like this is why. It’s a meaningful example of making something cool in a new set of tools and making it into a functioning system that elicits genuine feelings.

Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley – 7666-3772-4703

Look, I’m as tired of the Harry Potter fandom and its creator as you are, but as someone who donned a felt cloak and plastic owl for Halloween in elementary school, I still have a soft spot for it. This small, but dense recreation of Diagon Alley, the row of shops Harry visited with Hagrid before heading to Hogwarts, is admirable. Perfect? Absolutely not, but blame that more on the limits of Fortnite’s asset library. But you’ll still have a few minutes of fun mucking around Gringott’s and Olivander’s.

Gun game – Crazy Carnevil – 5763-3850-2682

Young me has a lot of fond memories of blasting evil clowns in CarnEvil, and while this Fortnite map isn’t a rail shooter, it gives off plenty of spooky fair vibes. Even better, with low gravity and some well-placed bumpers, you can go skyrocketing to other floating platforms in the distance to gain the advantage. Eat it, Ludwig von Tokkentakker.

The Parable of Jonesy – 3417-6117-5923

We here at PC Gamer love us some Stanley Parable, with its hilariously omniscient narrator and ability to surprise us with reality-bending player choices, like some sort of Muppet caper gone wrong. This map rebuilds the basic concept of the Stanley Parable and puts a fresh Fortnite twist on it, resulting in eight possible endings.

X-Run by X-Labo – 8660-5683-2097

Normally I’d throw a deathrun on our dedicated deathrun code list, but this map from the incredible X-Labo group is so artistically fascinating (and a genuine thrill to play) that it has to go on our overall creative code list. The cyberpunk metropolis aesthetic is perfect for X-Labo’s sense of design, with flying ships perched mid-air, towering skyscrapers surrounding you on all sides, and some genuinely inventive deathrun loops that will certainly frustrate you, but never unfairly. Stick around for the neat credits sequence at the end.

Trick or Treat Royale 2 – 9247-2717-7806

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Players drop into a cozy little suburb rife with Halloween decorations, then ring on all the doorbells to get weapons before a timer runs out. Once the clock hits zero, it’s deathmatch time, with random houses occasionally giving our increasingly rare weapons. There’s a creepy corn maze, a cul-de-sac, and even the snobbish mansion on the hill that’s gone way too far on the yard.

The Pit Zone Wars – 2534-1301-2113

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Leave it to a battle royale game to make combat arenas that look like they’re right out of… Battle Royale, or Hunger Games for the YA crowd. This tightly designed circle pit starts every contender at the edge of the circle, with launch pads further in and a tranquil pond at the center. Spy the tower in the center for some opportunities to snipe.

Werewolf’s Manor Prop Hunt – 6384-7950-7690

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Your classic prop hunt experience in a densely detailed haunted manor with plenty of corners to cower in. No one will blame you if you shoot at the giant spider props just to be safe.

U.A.E. Traitor-Free Space Initiative (AKA Among Us) – 1346-8877-7603

Another installment in Among Us-inspired maps, you’ll work with other players to sus out who is the «mimic.» There’s all the usual Among Us tropes, including a simple map and vents for the imposter to crawl through.

Mystic Mayhem Royale – 0980-2695-9956

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A branded partnership between Fortnite and Samsung, this mini-battle royale map mixes Wild West aesthetic with little touches of modernism for a fun blend of POIs. I enjoyed how deep the map goes, often into small crevices and canyons, resulting in sudden, tense fights at heights (or depths) the main battle royale map doesn’t often present. As of October 9, 2020, the map is in the featured matchmaking area, so you can play with randos, but the code above can be used after that cycles out.

Freaky Flights V2 – 4839-4130-3813

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

If you miss Fortnite’s planes as much as I do, this new mode will fill that propeller-shaped void in your heart. Two teams face off across two war ships filled with flyable planes, legendary weapons, and turrets. If for some reason you need to bail on your plane, there’s a couple dozen cargo containers floating in the water to let you exact some vengeance on your aerial archnemeses. 

Marco Polo in Venice: Hide and Seek – 6263-5818-8225

fortnite creative code

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A fun hide and seek map with a clever twist. One player acts as Marco Polo/the hider, while other players search every nook and cranny for them. Every minute, the Marco player emotes to give players a hint as to where they’re at. The map itself is dense and fun to explore, with countless little areas to comb through.

Mystic Mayhem – 9166-4301-5194

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

OK, so this map is techically a paid promotion from Samsung, but it’s a solid adventure and you get to shoot robots, so it’s a win in my book. You get sucked into your phone, where a bunch of malevolent AI…things have corrupted the whole works. You’ll need to solve puzzles and explore a green neon world to set things right.

Rocketnite: Downtown Shuffle – 5874-7417-0559

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

You knew this one was coming. Ever since Rocket League and Fortnite teamed up for a crossover event, of course someone would combine the two in creative mode. You race around on Fortnite’s ATVs, doing that familiar Rocket League thing of trying to score goals, and while you can’t ride the walls, the arena is absolutely saturated with bright neon lights, so it feels like home.

Storm Simulator One-Shot – 1621-7413-2076

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Swirl around a giant tornado right out of the Wizard of Oz, all while grappling and shooting your way to victory. Try landing on a giant bed or radio tower to get some solid footing, or 360-no-scope your enemy into oblivion while flying through the air.

The Sheikh Zayed Mosque – 0796-9126-3250

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

The largest mosque in all of the United Arab Emirates, the Sheikh Zayed Mosque is a central place of worship for countless Muslims since the early 2000s, with construction starting in 1996. This Fortnite recreation does an admirable job of mimicking the grand architecture and scale of the whole thing. A setting sun in the background lends an air of holy serenity to the atmosphere, making it one of the most impressive and culturally relevant artistic creations in Fortnite I’ve ever seen.

BTS’ Dynamite world – 0272-4337-3889

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

If you missed it, BTS is debuting their new music video for their single «Dynamite» in Fortnite’s Party Royale mode. If you can’t wait to watch it, here’s a recreation of their original video’s Hollywood-esque city, complete with a giant BTS sign in the hills and a Dynamite sign on the side of a building. I’m looking forward to the inevitable music video made with nothing but dance emotes.

Nvidia’s ray tracing treasure hunt – 9189-0518-5408

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

As of September 2020, Fortnite officially has ray tracing capabilities, assuming your PC can handle it. Epic has created an official map designed to show off all those RTX abilities, including improved reflections and shadows, real-time global illumination, , and ambient occlusion. Godspeed, sweet GPUs.

Halloween Town FFA – 5796-1293-8263

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

The only thing better than a town that embraces a spooky Halloween aesthetic is one that lets you blow it all up with pumpkin RPGs. This FFA map features accelerated running speed and a ridiculous amount of bouncy objects to launch yourself off of, making for some quick and killer fun.

Fortnite Kart – 7340-1511-8471

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

KingYoshi, the creator of that cool Ninja Warrior deathrun, has recreated Royal Raceway from Mario Kart. Even better, if you have enough players, you can throw items from the back of your golf cart like Double Dash. Peep Peach’s castle for a little Easter egg, too.

Endless Dunes – 0433-5352-8915

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A zone wars map set in a rolling desert marked by the ruins of an ancient structure, it’s a simple map but a visually striking one, and lord knows I love to look at cool stuff while I destroy friendships.

Super Mario Sunshine’s Delfino Plaza – 6892-7135-6628

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Whether you think Super Mario Sunshine is underrated or the worst Mario game ever (what’s it like to be so wrong?), no one can deny the beauty of Delfino Plaza. This hub area served as Mario’s base of operations while washing the gunk out of Isle Delfino, and this map sports a number of the same shortcuts and easter eggs you may remember from the actual game, so it’s a fun little tropical adventure.

Among Us: Polus – 0388-9523-9891

The popular multiplayer survival gem finally has its own Fortnite clone. A group of players all attempt to complete a number of objectives set on a moon base, but at least one player is actually an imposter looking to kill everyone as stealthily as possible. Creator TheBoyDilly has done a commendable job translating all the various features of Among Us to Fortnite, including a live camera system that helps you uncover the murderous pretender, and a vent system to let the imposter get around faster.

AMD’s Battle Arena (by MakaMakes) – 8651-9841-1639

Another creation from the king of Fortnite creative mode, MakaMakes, this sponsored arena comes courtesy of AMD, the GPU and CPU makers. It’s got a great Tron vibe to it, with the white and orange neon lights contrasting with one another. It’s fun to turn a corner and have a moment of confusion when your brain can’t process how far down that next jump goes. The code above takes you to a matchmaking hub with a FFA mode, CTF, and one other mode available.

The Creekwood Tracks – 0043-5459-2704

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

I’ve seen a lot of horror stories told through Fortnite, and only a very select few that I could consider good. The Creekwood Tracks does everything it needs to and then some to land in the latter category. You’re searching for your sister who seems to have gone missing deep in the woods, only to unravel something much bigger than the two of you. The minigame itself is tightly designed, so you’ll rarely wonder where the heck you need to go next (a very common problem in Fortnite stories), there’s a few genuinely creepy bits, and it’s over in about 20 minutes. That’s a win in my book.

MakaMakes’ Avengers Base

fortnite creative codes maka makes avengers base

(Image credit: Epic Games)

MakaMakes is basically the God of Fortnite creative mode, and he (along with some friends) managed to build the MCU Avengers base in just four hours. You’ve got the facade of the primary building, the long driveway, and even a helipad with one of those Quinjets. Fans of Fortnite season 4 will no doubt want to bounce around the place in their Iron Man skins.

Map code (Snipers VS Runners): 0324-8825-2719

Map code (Exploration): 4430-9314-0042

Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky – 0130-7403-6429

fortnite creative codes castle in the sky

(Image credit: Epic Games)

From Mustard Plays, a well-known YouTuber, this recreation of Laputa (otherwise known as the titular «Castle in the Sky» from the Hayao Miyazaki movie) is one part puzzle adventure and one part solid storytelling. You’re basically climbing your way through the guts of the castle before encountering the idle robot guardians, culminating in a fairly cool cinematic moment. If you’re curious what kinds of storytelling tricks Fortnite creative mode is capable of, this is a great example. I wouldn’t call it a 1:1 recreation of everything we see in the movie, but it’s definitely a great achievement.

Losh’s Sniper Stronghold One-Shot CTF – 0873-1343-4103

fortnite creative codes ctf

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A giant castle looms over a tattered courtyard, and a lone flag sits waiting to be captured in the belly of a castle. Only problem is you’ll need to avoid the sniper fire, or do the firing yourself. Low gravity and great sightlines make for a tense sniper duel.

Goldyisus’ mini-battle royale – 8325-5510-3277

fortnite creative codes battle royale

(Image credit: Epic Games)

The big Fortnite creative dreamers often go for their own battle royale maps. Is it as great as Epic’s own creation? Of course not, but this mini-BR map features a ton of fun locations that should make for similarly fun clashes.

Fall Guys Fortnite (but better) – 3958-4574-1075

fortnite creative codes fall guys

(Image credit: Epic Games)

OK so there’s already been at least one Fall Guys/Fortnite map, but I think I ended up preferring this one. It’s only got the three most popular games (Slime Climb, Door Dash, and Hex-a-Gone), but it recreates them pretty seamlessly within Fortnite’s creative mode toolset. Most importantly, very little of the map feels unnecessarily janky, which is important in a game where little mistakes mean your doom.

Modern Warfare Shipment – 4804-9489-3873

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

You know it, you love/hate it. The incredibly tiny multiplayer map from Call of Duty has been recreated with a decent amount of accuracy in Fortnite. The only thing it’s really missing is the ability to climb to the top of that one set of cargo containers, and the open door on the second-floor container in the opposite corner. Still, I’m sure it’ll be good for some lightning-fast TDMs.

Fortnite Fall Guys – 5361-9496-2479

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Fortnite whomst? Mediatonic’s bumble royale game is all the rage now, and not even Fortnite can escape from that fact with this Fortnite Fall Guys map. So of course someone went and made a bright and colorful mini-game collection that apes the best of Fall Guys own assortment of merciless death races, and aside from a couple agonizing design decisions (I hate those electric coils that bounce you around), it’s a solid effort.

Prop Racers – 8615-5534-1052

fortnite creative code

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Another racing mini-game, with one very big difference. Instead of karts or foot racing, you get turned into a random prop and zip around one of three neat tracks, like a sunny beach, a busy city street, or a dark mine. If you’ve ever wondered how much ass a toilet can haul, here’s how you’ll find out.

Pocket Racers: Modern House – 3683-4531-3616

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Some of the best go-kart tracks in Fortnite creative mode are the ones where you’re shrunk down and racing among the weeds and lawn critters. This modern house track has it all: A little pond to jump over, a muscle car to drive under, a whole bunch of hidden routes that only observant drivers will notice, and much more.

Mystic Mansion – 9872-3680-6180

It’s finally here! Welcome to Mystic Mansion – the first fully automated *non honor code* board game in fortnite Creative. Enjoy a perfect fusion between board game and party game! Enjoy!!!!! Map Code 9872-3680-6180#FortniteCreative @FNCreate @EnigmaFNBR 21, 2020

One part Haunted Mansion, other part Mario Party, this fusion is a surprisingly engaging party game for friends (and even strangers) to play together. Thankfully, you don’t have to rely on an honor system when it comes to dice rolls. The creators made it so you can only move as many spots as you’ve earned. The mini-game variety is solid too, with parkour puzzles, kart racing, and a weird pinball obstacle courses, plus seven other challenges.

The house from Parasite – 4221-6398-3543

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Parasite, AKA the winner of the 2020 Oscar Best Picture and a fascinating tale of class conflict and economic inequality, is amazing. Besides the tense and darkly comedic storytelling, its setting is equally compelling, winning a production design Oscar as well. Reddit user Xpertranger65 built a surprisingly similar version of the wealthy Park family’s house, including areas I won’t spoil for folks who haven’t seen the movie yet. Everything you’d recognize, like the wide open yard, pristine kitchen, and the children’s bedrooms are here.

One Shot Switch: Trickshot Arena – 1001-7293-0182

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Box fights are lame, but arena fights with this much neon glow are hard to hate. With lots of low gravity, jump pads, and a wall of pulsing soundwaves, this one-shot arena is simple and sweet in all the perfect synth wavey ways.

Color Switch v2 – 0387-1152-4745

(Image credit: Epic Games)

It’s more color switching, but with fun new updated maps, including Tilted Towers, a Japanese garden, and a Toy Story-esque play room.

Gun Game: Valley of Doom – 0434-7168-5507

(Image credit: Epic Games)

If you love big, impressive backdrops to all your shooting, the Valley of Doom is a solid choice. Giant robots fighting weird earth monsters are frozen in time, surrounded by attack helicopters. The map itself is a solid roundabout of spawn points, providing a few great vantage points to fight over, but certainly never ensuring total safety.

Modern Warfare 2 Terminal – 4340-5772-0250

Modern Warfare 2 still stands as one of COD’s strongest entries, whatever mode you’re playing, and now you can play on one of its most infamous maps. This gun game map does a fairly decent job of recreating the airport map, which is also where the villain Makarov slaughtered countless civilians and manager to frame the American government.

Paradise Highway Prop Hunt – 8782-6603-2109

(Image credit: Epic Games)

It’s the consistently fun prop hunt formula applied to a busy stretch of desert highway, with two whole gas stations and a restaurant. There’s plenty of corners to hide in and plenty of props big and small to transform into, including dinosaurs. Look, I know those Nevada highways are rough, but they’re not that bad.

Fort Light Gun Game – 8794-7565-5834

(Image credit: Epic Games)

This is a pretty ramshackle gun game map, with lots of debris laying around, but I found it enjoyable in the way that dense, messy maps often are. There’s plenty of corners to hide in, high vantage points to climb to, and even a couple of portals for quick getaways.

The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela – 6359-5458-5318

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

The great Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela was primarily built between 1075 and 1100, before extending far into the 12th century. It’s known as one of the most important holy institutions in Spain, serving as the end of a long pilgrimage route, and is the resting place of Saint James the Great, the apostle of Jesus. This Fortnite map is, uh, not as historically significant, but certainly still impressive. The exterior is a remarkably accurate recreation, while the interior manages to get most of the major details right. I’m not sure if Jesus appreciates his place of worship being turned into a zone wars map, but hey, considering it was once burnt down during a war, you could do worse.

Illusion Hotel: Gun Game – 4849-7779-3845

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A tight, mind-bendingly designed gun game map set in an ornate hotel full of upside down rooms, weird endless hallways, and a swimming pool that seems to rip the fabric of reality.

Dollhouse Snipers vs. Runners – 2301-1112-2208

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

The familiar snipers vs. runners formula gets slapped onto a young child’s dollhouse, and the creator has done a solid job of replicating that bit of plastic nostalgia. The front yard features a pink RV and car and a swimming pool, while the upper floors feature all the usual furnishings that Barbie (or poor millennials) dream of.

Titans – 9464-5951-7419

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Choose from 16 loadouts based on different character types and battle friends in this free-for-all mode. What’s fun about this map is each character’s diverse weapon and item set. Be the sniper peering from the top of the tower, or a B.R.U.T.E. mech driver, or the wielder of a giant sword. It’s the closest you’ll see Fortnite be to a character-based shooter like Overwatch or Valorant. Only shame is that the map isn’t terribly interesting, which is probably a design decision to make the mode more balanced for everyone.

Tidal Wave Prop Hunt – 8312-0054-3731

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A prop hunt game where the props can actually fight back a bit. On this lush series of  islands, the props can collect coins, which triggers a tidal wave (really a giant blue wall) that sweeps the hunters.

World War Deathmatch – 0324-4789-8618

(Image credit: Epic Games)

I love me some good old fashion trench warfare. That’s exactly what you get on this map, which lets 4-16 players fight to get to 30 eliminations. Thankfully, you can choose a weapons class, including assault, medic, support, and my personal favorite, recon. What I love about the level itself is that it’s the classic game of popping your head out to take potshots at enemies, or staying hunkered down and taking the measured approach.

Spy Tycoon – 4730-5857-9174

(Image credit: Epic Games)

You know, Fortnite Creative mode occasionally shocks me with how brilliant it is. Sometimes that’s because somebody recreates a Star Wars star destroyer. Other times, it’s because someone creates an entire Tycoon multiplayer game with dozens of mechanics interacting to create a genuinely coherent game-within-a-game.

Spy Tycoon lets you and three other friends compete to reach a goal of 50 points and become the top spy. You do this by collecting gold, stealing other players’ llama, and upgrading your own spy agency with a number of resources. You start with a very slow drip, but before long, you can unlock another floor of your agency to get access to legendary weapons, a lab, and kitchen. It’s a lot to digest at first, but I’ve seen it spark some tense competition between friends.

MakaMakes’ Mini BR Solo City – 8566-1472-7195

(Image credit: Epic Games)

MakaMakes is still the undisputed champion of Fortnite Creative maps. You may remember his recreations of a Star Wars star destroyer, a full-sized airport, and even an Avengers helicarrier.  He’s finally sunk his teeth into a proper battle royale map; an island city complete with a solar farm, a helicopter airport (heliport?), and a dense downtown, and it’s all destructible. Don’t pass on this one.

Goldeneye Temple – 4396-1463-7998

(Image credit: Epic Games)

You know it. You love (or hate) it. The classic N64 Goldeneye multiplayer level is back in Fortnite. It’s admittedly a very basic level design, as you might expect from a 23-year-old game, but it’s charming and solid for shooting your friends. Check out the moon room where the light shines down through the opening in the roof.

Bamboo Forest Gun Game – 2521-2490-2406

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A densely packed bamboo forest (with great attention to minor details, like pond lillies and decorated pagoda houses) provides a great backdrop to tense gun game rounds with your friend. In between the shooting, you can skip a weapon at the local blacksmith’s forge, but you’ll have to expose yourself to do so.

Golden Gate Bridge Zone Rush – 9312-1947-3701

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A good chunk of the PC Gamer crew lives in the bay area, so call us biased, but this take on the Golden Gate bridge as a zone push map works in all the ways you’d want it to. Long sight lines down each car-filled lane provides for tense firefights.

Tumble Tropics – 9277-1484-9084

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A fun custom battle royale map set on a series of small islands, each with a few interesting areas to dig around for loot in. It won’t revolutionize the way you play, but I always appreciate a map that’s been designed with care.

Arena Box Fights – 9650-7226-8979

You all normally hate Box Fights, but this one I made is pretty unique! [9650-7226-8979] from r/FortniteCreative

Normally, we don’t care one wit about box fights in Fortnite’s creative mode. They’re…fine. But Reddit user THCommandBlocks has managed to make a multiplayer competitive arena mode for box fights, and actually make it pretty interesting. The video does a great job of explaining how it works, and how it crowns the eventual champion, and the transparent boxes you’re fighting in provide for great spectator viewing.

Grapplerman – 0787-5770-1561

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Grappler gun minigames are a dime a dozen, but this simple custom mode turns you and up to 8 players into a bunch of New York Spider-Men, flinging yourselves around towering skyscrapers and racing to collect a llama and bring it back to a base. It’s good old fashioned fun, and probably the closest we’ll get to a Spider-Man collaboration for some time.

The Vault – Gunfight – 6463-5005-6823

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A very fun gunfight map for 2v2, 3v3, or 4v4 players set in, you guessed it, a bank that’s been broken into very recently. Some shattered walls allow for fun flanking maneuvers, while a deep central pit encourages you to get up close and put the pressure on the opposing team. Creator Natsuu20 has also added in a seemingly random power up every once in a while, making things extra interesting.

Grid Run – 0880-7742-8581

(Image credit: Epic Games)

It’s Tron’s lightcycles, but with Fortnite’s hoverboards! As you hover along, the ground you cross over will blink out of existence, forcing enemies to either jump over or dodge your tracks altogether.

Aqua Drift Race – 4484-4147-7979

(Image credit: Epic Games)

This is a really fun race track for bashing your friends into obstacles and knocking them into pits of water. It’s also just really beautiful, with plenty of coastal props and whitewashed architecture, which doesn’t hurt.

The Crater FFA

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A small, fun free-for-all map with plenty of low-gravity jumping and corners to hide in. Players start out in the base and quickly make their way out to the crater itself, which houses a giant rocket, a greenhouse, a solar farm and more.

The Mall is Closing Hide and Seek – 3227-8700-3877

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A great hide and seek map that’s filled with dark corners and all the familiar trappings of your childhood mall, like an arcade, a salon, and the «Pizza Pit,» which is also what I call my bedroom. Apparently creator ingamecarnageig took some inspiration from the Stranger Things mall.

MakaMakes’s Oasis – 3990-0084-4116

(Image credit: Epic Games)

MakaMakes is responsible for some of the best Fortnite creative maps out there, including that Minas Tirith map in our best codes list at the top of the page. We dug through his older creations and found this sleek, beautiful combat arena with hovering platforms, towering skyscrapers, and plenty of places to shoot and get shot at.

Elysium City – 7012-4442-2175

(Image credit: DumbblondeTwitch)

A short but sweet artistic creation from DumbblondTwitch. It’s like you mixed BioShock’s Rapture with a little sprinkle of Gotham, and Blond has built two ways of viewing the city’s beauty: A skyline view and a ground level area to explore.

Bikini Bottom Gun Game – 3300-7669-9591

fortnite creative code bikini bottom gun game map

(Image credit: Epic Games)

With the Spongebob: Battle for Bikini Bottom getting, uh, mixed reviews, why not give this new gun game map a try? Creator DumbblondTwitch did a remarkably detailed job of recreating the streets of downtown Bikini Bottom and its outlying ‘burbs. You’ll find the usual haunts, including Spongebob’s street, Sandy’s glass dome, the Krusty Krab, and even Barg’N-Mart and the Bikini Bottom prison. 

As a gun game map, it’s fun to fluctuate between different modifiers, like low gravity, and bounce around the area like an angry lasso-wielding squirrel. Also, I have to mention the fact that players start out on an island above the waterline before dropping down into the water, a smart and funny reference to the show’s opening.

Inception Zone Wars – 1012-0492-6062

(Image credit: Epic Games)

This Inception zone wars map features a fun design to climb and grapple gun your way around, but adds a vertical zone wall that moves up and down to the mix, meaning you’ll be force to think in three dimensions.

Galaxy Flint Wars – 6064-0690-4416

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

This map is filled with rockets, asteroids, and spacey buildings to shoot and swing your way around in low-gravity. The first player to 20 kills wins, but you’ll have plenty of fun careening from one end of the map to the other with the flint pistol and plunger grappling gun. It’s honestly a little challenging at first until you acclimate to what the creator is going for, meaning you’ll fall to your death before you become a true zero-G death machine.

Trials of Zaneth – 9078-3524-9057

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

You wake up in a crashed plane and find yourself in a magical land of Zaneth, where a whole bunch of trials and puzzles await you as you try to restore some peace to the land. It all feels very Zelda-ish, with its reliance on acquiring magical items to help you proceed over obstacles, but it’s pretty charming nonetheless.

Time Twist – Gun Game – 5918-7034-6151

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Though it isn’t the first map to do the «one map, two versions» take, this map does it really smartly with warp portals you can trigger at any point. It creates some fun scenarios where you might try to dodge an enemy’s fire by warping from an idyllic farm to a crumbling cluster of asteroids.

Hide & Seek: The Invisible Man – 8112-0478-9776

I’ve yet to see the modern Invisible Man film, which I hear is great, but this hide and seek map definitely goes for the classic black and white horror vibe. One player turns themselves invisible and is given a harvesting tool and a revolver, while other players try to avoid them by hiding and running throughout a tower that’s so oddly built it only adds to the fright.

Raccoon City PD – 9201-6033-0988

(Image credit: Epic Games)

This is far from a perfect Fortnite remake of Resident Evil 2’s iconic police station, but I still found myself chuckling at finding the right corners or rooms as I explored through the first level. Of course, there are a ton of zombies and puzzles to solve as you go around. Besides some kind of nonsensical checkpointing (that goes well beyond Capcom’s punishing style), this one is charming.

Extreme Team Rumble Royale – 2499-5597-2662

fortnite creative codes

(Image credit: Epic Games)

It’s not the most original map, but for a team rumble match, it doesn’t have to be. This huge series of islands is absolutely littered with purple and gold tier loot, a mech, an airplane, and other shenanigans aplenty, making it conducive to the kind of crazy low-gravity map-spanning murder you’d want.

Futuristic Factory – Gun Game – 8443-3453-8209

A really strongly designed gun game map that flows so well it could almost be a skate park. Features lots of speed boost areas that dip right into ramps and paths that help make all those one-shot kills look ten times cooler.

Talladega Super Speedway (and others)

fortnite creative codes racing

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Good Fortnite race tracks are a rare treat, and creator Commander has made not one, not two, but at least nine race tracks based on famous real-world locations like Talladega, Daytona, and Dover. Each track features lots of the real landmarks and layout of the track, and as someone who was dragged to a couple of Indy 500 races as a kid, let me say that Commander has done a bang-up job. You’ll race golf carts around each map and need to do a rolling pit stop every 2-3 laps, for that added realism. Now if only you could make it so the noise of every car deafened you.

  • Talladega: 7342-0258-7752
  • Daytona: 9386-3148-2727
  • Dover: 2421-7788-4325
  • Homestead Miami: 2624-1399-9816
  • Phoenix: 2547-9309-3801
  • Martinsville: 2921-2059-3490

Rainbow Six Siege House Map Recreation – 9315-3255-7086

The PC Gamer team absolutely loves Rainbow Six Siege, and this instantly recognizable recreation of the game’s House map is more than just a pretty face. I won’t say the «completely destructible» claim is totally true, though: I noticed a couple of choice walls that appeared to be locked in place, but otherwise, you can recreate a lot of your favorite breach-and-clear scenarios here. 

Even better, you’ve got a wide variety of operator playstyles and spawn points to choose from, with weapons ranging from auto-shotguns to mini-turrets, and more, which just adds to the longevity of this map. Just like a real match of Siege, one team defends two bomb points while the other makes their assault into the house. An absolute must-play.

Gun Game – Vacant – 3939-0057-1674

A really strong, beautifully designed gun game map that feels like it could be a level from Remedy’s Control, non-euclidean architecture and everything. I also love how the surface of everything is so reflective that it’s easy to stumble into one of the underground tunnels. Now if only we could levitate…

This ridiculous castle – 6581-3124-9021

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Created by x-Labo AKA Reddit user White-Faracha, this gorgeous castle includes a stunningly symmetrical courtyard with water features, and several levels to explore. It’s not reinventing a wheel or anything, it’s just making it really pretty to gawk at.

Project Starlight – 2987-5337-4997

Project Starlight - 2987-5337-4997

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A pretty good five round, 16-player battle royale map with a lot of verticality and plenty of crash pads. If you like your autumnal vibes, this has plenty of it.

The Avengers Helicarrier – 9763-8388-5095

Another creation from the criminally talented MakaMakes (who you may remember from some of our other favorite creative codes, like the Star Wars star destroyer and the full-fized airport further down), this Avengers S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier is actually a remake of an older design. Maka felt it deserved a second go, and boy did he deliver.  You’ve got the command room where Tony Stark infamously spotted a S.H.I.E.L.D. operative playing Galaga, Stark and Banner’s science lab, and a whole bunch of jets parked on the body of the carrier. Epic, just hire this man already.

The code above is for exploration mode, but Maka made a few other cool modes for players to try.

Super Hero Arena: 8058-5258-8241

Infected: 1302-2476-1496

Hide and Seek: 8297-3692-4422

Resident Evil 7 Recreation – 6496-9997-4696

Resident Evil 7 managed to breathe new life into the once stagnant survival horror franchise, and this is a pretty good approximation of the opening chapters, with a few creative liberties. It even includes a big fat Fortnite zombie telling you «welcome to the family, son.»

Silhouette Prop Hunt – 5176-4146-5073

Silhouette Prop Hunt - 5176-4146-5073

(Image credit: Epic Games)

You remember that game The Unfinished Swan? With it’s beautiful mix of black and white coloring mechanics that helped reveal a world you didn’t immediately know was there, it was a downright incredible experience. Now apply that to a Fortnite prop hunt, and while it may not emotionally resonate with you on the same level, it’ll sure be a good time. Every prop is a black silhouette set against a white or black background (or possibly a white and black tunnel), and it gives you some great opportunities to hide from opponents using nothing more than simple eye trickery.

City MVP Zone Wars – 6045-3254-5072

City MVP Zone Wars - 6045-3254-5072

(Image credit: Epic Games)

This is a pretty strong zone wars map, especially if you prefer the hustle and bustle of the city versus the more usual forest and plains environments Fortnite has to offer. It all culminates in the town square under the watchful gaze of Midas. I’m a big fan of the steep slope leading down to the town square, as it reminds me of all those times I’ve had to hike around San Francisco just to hang out with my PC Gamer boys. 

Memory Quiz Chapter 2 – 6422-6721-7141

Another round of the always fun memory quiz mini-game is here, and this one’s got quite a few genuine brain stumpers. I don’t care if «stumper» isn’t a word. I definitely feel dumb enough to use it after playing this.

Complete Destruction Royale – 8000-8899-6833

On the battle royale map, Fortnite’s level of destructibility was already commendable. Creator Prudiz here thought otherwise, so they went and assembled a street block from nothing but individual bricks, giving this free-for-all environment a level of destructibility heretofore unseen in any traditional Fortnite match. Need a door? Make one. Want some extra cover? Shoot into the ground and descend six feet below – just watch out for the dino teeth. A lot of work clearly went into making this map, and I sincerely doubt you could create an entire island with this level of destructibility without some serious hitching, making it one of the most impressive creations I’ve seen in some time.

A Damn Star Destroyer – 1653-9066-2637

A Damn Star Destroyer - 1653-9066-2637

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Another creation from MakaMakes, an absolute master of the Fortnite Creative craft. Like the title says, this is legitimately an entire Star Destroyer. It’s got everything from the bridge where you’d see British character actors sneering about incoming rebel fighters, a couple of hangars full of TIE Fighters and one of those Imperial shuttles the rebellion uses to infiltrate Endor, and even a cafeteria, bathrooms, and stormtrooper quarters. Because what kind of fascist space Nazi army would set out into space without a place to eat and sleep? You really need to explore the outside of the ship to get a true sense of the scale, which you can do by just double-jumping and flying around. Look at the image above. See that little black dot near the front of the ship? That’s me! Also worth noting, when you jump into the map, it will look like you’re in space. The replay mode (where you can take photos) doesn’t show that off, so you’ll definitely be getting the full Imperial experience.

The Neighbor Remastered – 1675-1520-8935

Yes, that neighbor. For those not in the know, once upon a time, there was an indie game called Hello Neighbor that was made massively popular by YouTube horror game jockeys, where you had to infiltrate your creepy neighbor’s increasingly labyrinthine house to discover his dark secrets. It was perfect for your Markipliers and Jack Septiceyes of the world. Go figure that Fortnite (with its fan base’s penchant for jumping puzzles) would mash the two together. There’s no actual neighbor to chase you, as far as I’ve seen, but there are areas that will auto-kill you if you stay in them too long.

An Entire Dang Airport – 6037-9905-6392

MakaMakes is one of my favorite Fortnite creators. The guy clearly has a knack for laying out a believable space and filling it with enough detail that anyone can go «yup, that is exactly what that would look like in Fortnite.» His latest creation, an entire airport complete with two terminals, a runway, a bunch of planes, and tacky restaurants is nothing short of stunning. Revel in the joy of not one, but two Durr Burger restaurants that will definitely charge you $15 for fries, or the interior of a plane, complete with a first class and economy section roped off by a curtain.

MakaMakes details how he made the airport in the video above, and it’s genuinely cool to see someone work through the process and explain how they created something with a relatively limited set of tools. Evidently, he had to make the nose of a plane with snowballs from the snowman gallery of items. That’s just genius.

The code above is for a free exploration mode with player flight enabled. Try out this other code for a humorous take on airport security: 1854-0566-2178.

10Kill Sniper – 0377-1286-7849

10Kill Sniper - 0377-1286-7849

(Image credit: Epic Games)

A smart, fun sniper map that comes with four separate modes: Sniper rifles, bows, rocket launchers, and shotguns. The pleasant tropical, whitewashed stone architecture is punctuated by a bunch of wind jump pads that can launch you vertically or horizontally across a gap. It’s not quite Quake, but it’s one of Fortnite’s closest approximations.

Autumn Zone Wars – 3781-9472-2606

A lovely, scenic autumn landscape for zone war shootouts. The typical palette of fall colors blends really well together, and I appreciate that the streams of water are more decorative, rather than forcing you to swim and expose yourself to enemy fire. Items are super-sized and easily spotted, which helps keep the focus on combat rather than searching for items.

Fortnite Outlast Recreation – 8752-7425-3922

Outlast still stands as one of this gen’s best horror games, influencing a new generation of game designers and YouTubers who like to scream. Created by IFrost Origins, this map recreates apparently the entirety of Mount Massive Asylum from the original game, and for a Fortnite creation, it’s a solid approximation. You’ll likely find yourself remembering «oh yeah, I had to get the keycard to unlock this, to fix this, to turn this thing on» like a nightmarish Zelda game. Oh, and yes, there are invincible enemies that will chase you down, although thankfully checkpoints seem plentiful. There’s even one guy who says «little pig.»

Overwatch Black Forest Map – Gun Fight – 9546-5724-7030

(Image credit: Epic Games)

One of Overwatch’s best deathmatch maps gets a Fortnite makeover. You and friends will enter with randomized weapon loadouts and duke it out in a fairly standard Gun Fight match. I really love how well this map translates from game to game. It’s got all the right details, like the aging wood of every building, the Omnic robot corpses laying around, and the way the sunlight just bounces off of everything. Perfect for some wanton murder.

Temple Escape – 8870-7331-1222

(Image credit: Epic Games)

It’s the Temple Run format—run like crazy, and time your jumps so you don’t get stuck in a pit of spikes—and it works beautifully here. Fortnite has long been known for inventive death runs, but there’s something more fun about being able to go long distances, thinking you’ll go just a little further on this one run, only to flub it somewhere else. I must have played this for 20 straight minutes before giving up.

Counter-Strike’s Dust 2 by Team Evolve

(Image credit: Epic Games/Team Evolve)

Random Teams: 9908-4675-7557

Custom Teams: 8784-9694-5171

Even if you’ve never played Counter-Strike, you’ve definitely heard of de_dust2. The most popular CS map known to man has been recreated with striking accuracy by Team Evolve. Scale is a tough thing to really nail in Fortnite, being a third-person game and all, but Evolve has really made those corners feel just as deadly as the original project. Check out their comparison video below.

Miniature Paris – 7593-6430-3199

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Created by Reddit user XWARD-GAMING, this miniature version of the city of love is a neat diversion to explore. Scale the Eiffel Tower (via portal, of course), walk along the river Seine, and even visit the Arc de triomphe. The Arc is done pretty dang well for a Fortnite creation, recreating even smaller details like the carved statues of humans on the faces of either arch.

Rainbow Six Siege Yacht Map Bomb Hunt – 2996-9373-3174

(Image credit: Epic Games)

You know us. We here at PC Gamer love Rainbow Six Siege. Sometimes too much. This creative map recreates the picturesque Yacht map straight out of the game, and even better, you’re tasked with disarming or defending the randomly placed bomb, and you’ll get to buy weapons from vending machines with a limited pool of materials.

FortniteBowl – 2669-4698-3075 (alt codes in description)

A sporting piece of work from YouTuber MakaMakes. This Super Bowl stadium is the perfect fit for anyone looking to throw down for a touchdown or two. It also comes with plenty of alternate modes: 

Map code (Exploration): 2588-0476-9968

Map code (Zone Wars): 1843-2510-1807

Map code (Makas Games): 6236-6720-2528

Fortnite Bowl: 2669-4698-3075

Jurassic Run (Cross MG): 6460-7793-2408

Minas Tirith From The Lord of the Rings – 1048-3487-4391

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Have you ever wanted to reenact the cavalry charge of Pelennor Fields with an ATV? Did you ever see that scene where Denethor, the dad of Boromir and Faramir, threw himself from the top of the mountain while on fire, and think «I could do that?» Now is your chance.

This recreation of the Gondor capital city, Minas Tirith, is pretty dang astounding, especially when you spawn out on the fields where the hordes of orcs prepared their siege. It even has the throne room where Pippin kickstarted his American Idol career. The only downside is that you can’t lay siege to the city with a B.R.U.T.E. mech because the wooden tower it spawns in is indestructible.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s 2v2 Gunfight King Map – 9169-2204-8734

(Image credit: Epic Games)

I love, love, love Modern Warfare’s 2v2 Gunfight mode, and we’ve finally got another map that recreates one of its strongest arenas. Weapons and items are different each turn, and there’s even the option to capture the center flag once the timer runs out. Even better, you’re not restricted to 2v2. Toss some more friends in there to make it 3v3 or 4v4 if you like.

This is absolutely the dumb Fortnite creative mode stuff I live for. Forget zone wars, to hell with prop hunts, someone took your neighbor’s gaudy Christmas light show spectacle and put it into a video game. Even better, all the choreographed lights line up pretty well with Metallica’s cover of Carol of the Bells. Not a bad way to say bye to the holidays.

Lonely Fisherman’s Lighthouse – 8688-9518-3797

(Image credit: Epic Games)

I love it when someone takes Fortnite’s creative tools and just tries to build a natural, lived-in space—sort of like if Gone Home had been built by Epic. That’s (sort of) what you get with the Lonely Fisherman’s Lighthouse, a small, compact space that’s full of cool little details to discover. I’m not entirely sure if I «solved» what happened to the fisherman, or if there even is a mystery to solve, but I had fun tooling around with this area and I hope more like it keep getting made.

Zone Wars: Permafrost – 1356-9797-8051

A slippery sliding zone wars map that starts with a lovely tumble down a hill and over an icy lake. It’s perfect for comically fast drive-by eliminations, or just accidentally tossing yourself into the storm.

Ski Shooters – 1035-5206-8493

As a longtime, devout follower of the Church of Snowboard Kids, I’m all for an arcadey downhill shooting mini-game. Players start at the top of a mountain, starting with one weapon, and attempt to take out other players with other weapons and grenades you can snatch along the way. There’s even a couple fun ramps that lead to higher vantage points, and an appropriate Christmas theme. No snowboarding dog, however.

Ski Park – 8740-3316-5899

(Image credit: Epic Games)

Prefer more freeform snowboarding? Check out this surprisingly large construction, with multiple hills of various shapes and sizes. Even better, acceleration pads help get you back up to the top in no time.

FFA Morpheus Map from Unreal Tournament – 0508-8570-9807

This custom free-for-all map is a surprisingly well-done recreation of Unreal Tournament 99’s Morpheus map. Creator wertandrew goes so far as to lower gravity, which makes sprinting and jumping from one platform to another and one-shotting your enemy mid-air all that much more satisfying.

Spencer Mansion – 6345-4201-8801

Yep, you’re reading that right. Someone went and Fortnite’d the Spencer Mansion from Resident Evil. You start out in the woods and are forced to flee from a gang of Fortnite zombies, straight into the mansion itself, just like RE1 intro. It’s far from a 1:1 recreation, but I found myself chuckling at how the layout reminded me of the early stages of that classic survival horror locale.

Duck Hunt – 6122-8143-7360

Creator: NJ Checkmate

Everyone loves Duck Hunt, and while there isn’t any dog to get revenge on, you’ll certainly feel almost as satisfied shooting your friends out of the sky. One team turns themselves into rubber duckies and fly around collecting wood to drop into tree, while the other team turns them into red paste with randomized weapons. In my time with it, the controls felt really smooth, and I could see this becoming a fun diversion for a small group of friends.

Bordernite – 2731-2533-2140

Creator: Prudiz

If you missed having a Borderlands area on the map, you can still get that mayhem in creative mode. Prudiz has built a surprisingly large «RPG» experience where you go around collecting orbs, surviving hordes of zombies, and battling a boss in hell, all with Borderlands’ unique aesthetic.

Super Smash Bros. Hyrule Castle – 6400-7723-2171

I was one of those high-pitched kids screaming at an N64 on Christmas, so believe me when I say that the architecture of Smash Bros’ Hyrule Castle is forever etched into my brain. Evidently, Fortnite Creative map creator MrSlickWillyz was, too.

It’s basically a deathmatch map built using the exact same layout as the original N64 map, but you get the plunger grappling gun, so you can get some crazy jumps, just like the original Smash. Check out that masterfully edited trailer (with plenty of nostalgia hits) to get an idea of what it looks like in motion.

Junkyard Juke – 1113-6823-4725

Junkyard Juke is my favorite prop hunt in a long time, and not just because it was featured during the first-ever Fortnite World Championship. In its original form, multiple teams would either be props trying to sneak their way into the incinerator at the center of the map, or they’d be the hunters standing atop a tower right above it. What makes things interesting is the red light, green light-style gameplay. The hunters are periodically blinded every 5 seconds, which helps give the props a chance to move up and keeps things interesting for the shooters. Other than that, it’s a fairly well-balanced map, with lots of nooks and crannies for props to exit their spawning area and stand a fair chance.

Ruin’s Realm – Charge the Ancient Seals – 1347-0027-1101

This is the closest I’ve come to feeling like I’m playing an old school Quake deathmatch in Fortnite, if only because of the tight arena and ability to launch yourself high into the sky.
