There have been a couple ‘instant death’ locations last season due to the Unvaulting event, but now the bug is back in Season 9 around Neo Tilted.
Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 dropped on May 9 that included complete redesigns of Tilted Towers and Retail Row, now Neo Tilted and Mega Mall respectively.
The end of Season 8 saw the destruction of Tilted Towers and Retail Row due to the volcano erupting and tossing rocks across the map.
Leading up to Season 9 the Unvaulting event caused an instant death area to appear around Loot Lake, which was the epicenter for the event.
Another instant death location has been found around Neo Tilted, thanks to this clip posted on the FortniteBR subreddit.

The clip shows the player opening a supply drop then attempting to slide down the mountain in order to chase the loot, but is then suddenly eliminated.
Players have been finding different “instant death” locations around Fortnite for a while, but for one to appear so soon into a new season is certainly rare.
Even though Season 9 has gained positive remarks from the casual community, the competitive community has been upset over things like the inconsistency found in the new combat shotgun’s damage.
We expect Epic to address these bugs and glitches with the next patch, v9.10, expect to drop next week around May 14.
