Loot Lake (Briefly Leaky Lake) was an area on the Battle Royale map located at central north coordinates D4, E4-E5, southeast of Pleasant Park, north of Gotham City, north-west of Dusty Depot, south of The Block south-west of Lazy Lagoon, and east of Snobby Shores.
Loot Lake is arguably the most changed location in the Fortnite map, being changed in Season 4, Season 5, Season 6, Season 8, Season 9, and Season 10 - all in in completely different states. It is also arguably one of the most important – if not the most important location in the Chapter 1 Battle Royale storyline, being in some way involved in the live events of every single season except for Seasons 3 and 7. In Season 10, Loot Lake could spawn up to 30 Chests.
Prior to Season 5, Loot Lake was a lake that was surrounded by boats, a house in the middle and two factory buildings at the shore. At the very end of Season 5, the CUBE had melted into Loot Lake, causing the lake to have the properties as did the CUBE—bouncy.
When Season 6 released, the middle island rose out of the ground, the CUBE attached to the bottom. However, when the floating island started to move, the location was named Leaky Lake. This floating island, after taking a journey lasting around a month, it returned back to Leaky Lake. In a few days, the CUBE exploded the floating island to kick off Fortnitemares. With its job done, the CUBE began to crack and disintegrate into the vortex beneath. When the CUBE had released all of its substances into the vortex, the CUBE exploded, and the Butterfly event started. After the Butterfly event, Loot Lake had changed immensely. There were more islands in the lake, and there were shards of the CUBE.
Loot Lake had remained dormant until Patch 8.40, in which the government had set up a lab around a giant metal plate that they had discovered. Runic symbols began to appear around this bunker - the CUBE fragments also disappeared.
The metal plate turns out to be the Vault where all of the vaulted weapons were located. However, in The Final Showdown Event, the Mecha smashed open the Vault and used the Nexus's power to defeat the Cattus.
At the start of Season 10, the floating orb finally exploded. This caused time to stop around the lake, making a anti-gravity zone with floating objects and the frozen explosion at the centre.
At the end of Season 10, during The End Event, The Rocket created a rift above Loot Lake, with lasers pointing down at The Zero Point. The Rocket blasted down and hit the anti-gravity zone, causing a huge shockwave. The Rift above Loot Lake opened again, and the 6 other Rockets flew down slowly with the Meteor, with it crashing into the anti-gravity zone, getting sucked into The Zero Point and exploding. The entire game was sucked in, and so was Loot Lake.
