Greasy Grove might be frozen for now, but a newly added Fortnite mechanic lets you open some of the chests suspended in ice.

Greasy Grove has always been a fan-favorite location to land - that was until it was unceremoniously frozen at the beginning of Season 7.

The ice rink that sits above Greasy is still a decent location. You can access the broken remains of the Polar Peak castle and loot the attics of some of the former Greasy houses.

We should be a day or so away from the melting of that ice, however. A rift beacon was placed on the ice last week, and one Redditor captured some footage of the Visitor as he worked.

Recent changes to Fortnite prevents players from destroying chests. The days of frustration are over. You don't have to worry about breaking through a ceiling and destroying the chest above. Now, the chest opens when you break the structure beneath.

You can use this strategy to your advantage at Greasy Grove - at least while it remains frozen. Breaking the floor will open a chest for you, and give you at least one of the items inside.

Most of the items spawned too far away to reach, so this is going to be quite frustrating if you get something like a Gold Scar. Still, if you're in need of some healing - breaking one of the frozen chests in Greasy Grove might be worth a try.
