With Fortnite content feeling increasingly stale, players are turning to Creative mode to keep things fresh. This new Search and Destroy map shows promising signs ahead of the leaked S&D LTM.
Team Liquid star Alex “Fiber” Bonetello was thrust into the limelight back towards the end of Season X, when he teamed up with Turner “Tfue” Tenney and “Khanada” for FNCS Trios. Since then he has continued to gain popularity in the competitive scene and took 7th place in the FNCS Squads Grand Finals.
Recently, Fiber has been working with Creative mode content creator @beario14 to build the ultimate Fortnite Search and Destroy map. Well the map, titled “Search and Destroy: Seaside Bay” is now available to play and it looks great.
Map Code: 5461-9640-8166
Competitive Search and Destroy | Seaside Bay (1v1-4v4) 2 minute rounds | Code: 5461-9640-8166 from r/FortniteCompetitive
Seaside Bay feels like a nice mixture between CS:GO and Call of Duty S&D, but set in the world of Fortnite. It follows a standard S&D format, where teams take it in turns to attack and defend the two bomb sites. Throughout the rounds, players earn coins based on their performance, and these coins allow them to purchase higher tier weapons. Crucially, there is no building in this mode.
As of right now, you can play with teams of 1-5 players and the first to win six rounds will take the Victory Royale. An in-game bug currently means that teams will be random, but once this is fixed you will be able to select specific squads.
Fiber’s map is already receiving some positive feedback. Fortnite pros like Shane “EpikWhale” Cotton and Reza "Symetrical" Ebrahimi Manie have sung their praises on Twitter, and it has gained plenty of traction on Reddit.

Following the v11.40 patch, it was leaked that a Search and Destroy LTM is on its way to Fortnite. Data miner “Lucas7yoshi” found a set of challenges centered around a Creative LTM, giving players the chance to unlock some new Back Bling styles, a spray and a whole bunch of XP.

When exactly this mode will appear in game is still unknown, but Fiber’s map demonstrates just how fun it could be. Grab some friends and give it a go!
