What is a Rift in Fortnite?

Fortnite has added rift zones to the game in the 14.30 update. These rifts are areas on the map that are surrounded by a blue aura and have different types of effects when the player enters one of these zones. Every rift zone has its own special effect on the player, one could stop them from building, one could reduce the gravity, one could make them dance, and many more.

These rift zones can not be spotted on the map. Players can look for blue aura covered locations from the battle bus to see where the rift zones are. Whenever a player enters a rift zone, they are told by the game that they have entered a special location.
