Tomato Town Where Did You Go … Tomato Temple Now
Tomato Town, a destination between the popular landing spots of Risky Reels and Dusty Divot, received a huge map change with the patch 5.30 which was released on Thursday. Tomato Town, had been in the game since its release in September 2017, was changed and renamed to Tomato Temple. The Tomato head has appeared at the top of the temple, and it seems that it is now used as some kind of a deity within the game, almost “Indiana Jones” like.
There was a small event in Tomato Town prior to the patch being released. The event included the rift which brought the Tomato head back, but in a burnt like manner. Players who played in season 4 probably remember that the Tomato head disappeared through the rift by the end of the season, but it was brought back in Season 5 of Fortnite. I’ve referenced Ali-A, a popular FNBR blogger who discusses the various changes in Tomato Temple as well, he does a really job detailing the various changes and possibilities that led to those changes.

It also appears that Tomato Temple will also have another event take place on August 27th @ 2PM. According to the twitter page of the popular Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks @FNBRLeaks, which tweets exclusive leaks before their release tweeted the following:

Considering that Epic Games has recently modified Tomato Town and essentially replaced it with another area, it is hard to say what will happen on August 27. I’m thinking the gas stations surrounding Tomato Temple will eventually disappear.
As a regular player of Fortnite Battle Royale, Tomato Town wasn’t very popular, was small, didn’t have much loot nor cover. However, Tomato Temple is much better and it’s becoming a more popular landing spot especially since the new change with much more cover and loot.
