Epic Games recently delayed the upcoming 17.40 update for Fortnite. However, data-miners have been able to uncover some of the changes coming with this update. One of the major revelations is that Coral Castle will be abducted by the alien invaders. As a result, YouTuber, Ali-A took the opportunity to say goodbye to this aquatic point of interest.

Coral Castle was introduced into Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 3 when Aquaman was the secret skin for the season. Initially, Epic hinted at an Atlantis-like underwater location to celebrate the addition of Aquaman. When the POI ended up just being a castle surrounded by water, fans were massively disappointed.

Furthermore, the loot in this location is also very scarce. Thus, most players do not prefer to land at this location. To say his final goodbyes to the castle, Ali-A hosted a custom 100-man battle royale wherein the players could only drop at Coral Castle and must fight it out from there.

As expected, due to the lack of loot, most players ran around with a pickaxe as their primary weapon. Ali-A himself was one of these unlucky players as he was mowed down by another pickaxe. Following this, he decided to spectate a player named Zaid Ali. Due to the similarity in their names, the YouTuber decides to support him. Eventually, Zaid is eliminated and the battle spills out of Coral Castle and turns into an all-out UFO war.
