These Rift Beacons have been appearing all over the battle royale map during the course of Season 10 and have caused the return of Dusty Depot, Retail Row, and even Kevin the Cube’s Floating Island following the v10.20 content update. 

When they appear, map changes have almost always come soon after. Although, it seems that Epic Games are keeping players on their toes again, as it’s highly probably that the newest find won’t impact the location where it was found.

There are two Rift Beacons located at Dusty Depot, just like earlier in the season. However, with so many changes already taking place at the point of interest, it seems unlikely that lightning would strike twice there.

Also, there’s something about the way they are placed this time around which suggests they’re not sticking around at the factories for long.

As seen in the images below, one has been stacked on top of a truck, suggesting that it’s actually going to move around the map before deciding where to stop, while the other larger Rift Beacon is stationary.

Seasoned veterans of the free-to-play game will know that Epic Games have added ever-changing features for players to monitor in the past, free v bucks generator such as the moving helicopter in Season 8, but there’s a lot more at stake this time. 

If the Rift Beacons are to stop off near the iced-over lake in the snow biome, as leaks have previously suggested, fans might finally see Greasy Grove make its return.

Other fan favorite points of interest have also appeared in the game’s files, such as Anarchy Acres, Risky Reels and others, meaning that if the truck stops at the right place, one of them could come back in the near future.

While the final destination of the Rift Beacons’ journey is shrouded in mystery at the time of writing, map changes have been occurring on a weekly basis, meaning that it won’t be long before we find out what’s in store.
