Villain Lair1 X.png

Villain Lair was an Unnamed Landmark in Battle Royale added in Season 4, located inside the coordinate B4 and B5, east of Snobby Shores. It was a heavily decayed hideout that resembles a shape of a robot on the mountains on the outside with a large missile dock and security cameras. Unlike the security cameras added in Chapter 2 Season 2, the security cameras inside the lair couldn't actually detect players. Inside was a purple-themed facility with control center, rooms with servers, station wagons, medical gurneys, a sleeping quarter and an empty pool. The villain lair can also be found in Creative, before and after deteriorating.

The "Fate" loading screen

  • The Fate loading screen shows Fate walking through the lair holding the Fated Frame, with several "lobby drones" (the drones which appear after a player is eliminated) behind her. The presence of the "lobby drones" behind Fate in the loading screen might mean that the lair's inhabitants were killed by Fate, which would explain the lair's abandonedness and disrepair.
