Polar Peak 9.20.png

Polar Peak was an area on the Battle Royale Map, located behind Greasy Grove, northeast of Frosty Flights and southwest of Shifty Shafts. Before v9.20, it was a large iceberg with a castle at the top and a little village surrounding it. The main tower was on the iceberg while two smaller towers were lower down on the iceberg creating a wall. Around the peak, there were smaller towers and campsites. There were zip lines leading to and from the iceberg. It is located north of Happy Hamlet, south-west of Shifty Shafts and east of Frosty Flights.

During the May 4th unvaulting event, the Volcano erupted a large volcanic rock that cracked Polar Peak severely. Early on in Season 9, the iceberg was cracking even more and occasionally rumbled with ice dust coming off it. A little later, an eye could be seen inside the iceberg which looked at players and made strange noises.

After v9.20, the iceberg collapsed and the main castle crumbled down into pieces. Some of the buildings surrounding it also fell down and the infinity blade altar disappeared. The eye previously seen inside also vanished, and some footprints appeared near the iceberg.

On June 9th, Polar Peak's castle was occasionally sighted in the water south of the island, being carried by the monster. The monster would come out of the water and re-submerge shortly after.

Season 9

9.10 Patch Notes (May 23rd)

  • Polar Peak has cracked even more, and mysterious noises are coming from the iceberg. It seems as if something is trying to escape. It cracked more every 30 seconds and launches air out. Ice falls and it shakes. It could of also knock you off, so you had to be careful.
  • May 28th: An eye has appeared inside of the iceberg. If you get close to it, its pupil will enlarge and it will stare at you.
