In past Fortnite season 8 updates, players have reported instant elimination after visiting a specific spot. Players were eliminated just standing near the Block and also near the Fork Knife location.
After Fortnite v8.51 update, new instant death location has been discovered. Popular streamer Dakotaz posted a clip to Twitter highlighting how he got eliminated after visiting a bugged location. He is not the only one, but two more players also fell victim to the new death location.

After Fortnite v8.51 update, Dakotaz was playing with his two teammates and complimenting about the Epic Games for working hard on patch and fixes.
“Bro, Fortnite is actually getting so much better lately. They have been really responsive with the community, fixing bugs man, it’s crazy,” he said. Soon after this, they got eliminated by the instant death spot.
