Risky Reels is a now-extinct area on the Battle Royale map located at northeast coordinates H2, east of Lazy Links and northwest of Wailing Woods. It was a drive in theater with two houses, a ticket booth and a drive in projector that was damaged by the falling meteorite. It was released and added on Patch 4.0 of the Season 4 update. In the 5.10 Patch, Risky Reels was updated and repaired. The houses were fixed, fences have been painted and multiple chest spawns have been added on the new cars. The Risky Reels dirt mound from where the crater was is patched up.
However, at the start of Season X, a miniature version of Risky Reels appeared on a hill near Sunny Steps, and a Risky Reels spray can be earned at Tier 49 in the Season X Battle Pass. Risky Reels is expected to return sometime in Season X.
