Spawn Island is the location all players spawn before heading on a Battle Bus to the Battle Royale Map. The area is blocked off by invisible walls and Weapons can spawn, though they deal no damage to the player.

From Season 7 to Chapter 2 Season 5, Spawn Island has significantly changed every season to fit the season's theme. In Chapter 2 season 5 it seems the original OG spawn island has returned.

  • Trivia

    • During The Devourer Of Worlds Event, Galactus destroyed Spawn Island, launching the players off of it. It is the first time that the Spawn Island has been involved during a Live Event.
    • The Ice Storm Event started at the very beginning of the game. Therefore, players who got in late saw some of the event on the Battle Bus or on Spawn Island.
