In the early hours of Friday morning, Epic replaced Fortnite's Risky Reels with The Block, an area that houses a creation made by a player in the new Creative mode. As you would expect, players are stuck and build their own play spaces – and one of the first favorites is the Call of Duty maps.
Players use Creative mode to create Fortnite versions of Nuketown, Shipment and Rust, and some efforts are quite impressive. Here is a brief roundup.

Of course, Call of Duty maps are not the only point of reference for Fortnite's creatives. Players also spent time recreating the old school areas of the Fortnite map. Here are the old school factories rethought, courtesy of redditor Mrhollywood03.

According to all accounts, creative mode is a useful tool and players have fun making jokes with it. It is an extension of the popular Playground Mode sandbox and is the third mode of the Fortnite title screen, along with Save the World and Battle Royale.
Epic said it will contain creations created in Creative with everyone in Battle Royale, so you'll never know, but you could find a Call of Duty map while you're out.
Or that, or an explosion from the past of the Fortnite map.
