5 secret Fortnite Season 3 Easter Eggs

Bears and Gnomes, Optimus Prime, Deadpool, and a whole lot more Fortnite Season 3 Easter Eggs.

Fortnite Season 3 is still young, and players are continuing to discover new places to land. As we explore the new map, we notice a few details that may get overlooked. Here’s a list of five of the most interesting Easter Eggs from Fortnite Season 3. Let us know if you find any more!

5. The Church of Deadpool

Fans of The Yacht were happy to see that it made it through the flood. Of all of the POIs on the Fortnite island, this may have been the safest place to be. It is, after all, a boat.

The Yacht went through some massive changes, however. It’s no longer the party hub that it was in Season 2. Now, it’s more of a washed-up supply vessel. Deadpool’s mark can still be seen on the boat, however. There’s a painting of Deadpool holding Aquaman’s Trident on the front of the ship.

Deadpool’s influence over The Yacht goes, deeper, however. If you venture inside to one of the secret rooms, you’ll find a shrine to Deadpool, complete with benches for those who came to pay their respects.

4. Optimus Prime

For those who don’t know, Optimus Prime was the name given to the truck statue that was next to the RV Park (between Retail and Lonely) during Chapter 1. Not many people know that the structure actually made it into Chapter 2.

For Seasons 1 and 2, you could see the top of the structure sticking out of the water, off the coast of Sweaty Sands. It retained some of its form for the first two seasons but is now in ruins under the sea. We hope to see it emerge after the water levels go down, but this might be the last that we see of our old buddy.

3. The Golden Chair

Sure, Midas may have been eaten by a shark at the beginning of Season 3, but that doesn’t mean that his influence over the island has finished. Those who paid close attention will remember Midas’ Golden Chair from Season 2 – and that’s still in play.

The Chair was on the move for a good portion of the season. It started at The Agency before it was removed – possibly stolen – and put into transit on a canoe and truck. Eventually, the chair ended up at Salty Springs.

Someone wanted to hang onto the chair, however. It survived the flood, thanks to No Sweat Insurance. You can find the Golden Chair in one of the storage boxes at the No Sweat building between Frenzy Farm and Dirty Docks.

2. Toiletman

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 introduced us to two inanimate figures within the Fortnite map: Hayman and Pipeman. The latter was a bit more interesting to follow, as he trekked his way across the map and found a place to rest before the flood took over.

These two might be gone, but a new character is waiting to emerge from the flood: Toiletman. You can find this pieced-together toilet statue in the south of the map. Hopefully, he’ll offer us another small story to follow in Season 3 and 4.

1. Peace prevails

The most popular sub-pot from Fortnite Season 2 had to have been the Gnomes vs. the Bears. You can take a look at the full recap of that story here, but many of you probably followed along with the secret challenges for the season.

By the end of the season, we were able to broker a truce between the rival factions. Thankfully, that peace survived the flood and spilled over into Season 3. You can find the Bears and Gnomes, living in harmony, scattered around the map. Their primary hub is on a raft to the south of Sweaty Sands, where the groups can be seen sunbathing, playing games, and admiring the view.

There are a ton of additional Easter Eggs around the new Fortnite map, waiting for us to discover. There are even some details we didn’t include, here, like references to old-school Batman and Jaws. Keep your eyes peeled for more as the season continues and the water recedes.

Fortnite nerfs the Visualize Sound Effects range in Season 3 update

The most broken feature of Chapter 3 has now finally received a nerf and players couldn’t be happier. Here’s the latest on that.

Fortnite footsteps

After a long wait, Epic finally fixes the most broken feature of Fortnite that sweats were just tired of ever since the beginning of Chapter 3. Visualize Sound Effects was a feature which was recently nerfed in an update where players got to experience it as they jumped into a Battle Royale match.

Fortnite has had a history of broken features and glitches that have been well exploited by the player community over the last few years. From XP Glitch Maps to weapons meta, players have been using these exploits to gain a gameplay advantage that sometimes ends up getting them banned for their actions.

While some actions or exploits get them banned, others are just bugs in the game that is an error from the developer’s end that they take it casual enough to fix. One such exploit that was legit in the game was Visualize Sound Effects in sound settings.

When one enables the option, they can see visual cues of chests, gunfire, footsteps, reboot vans or even if someone is healing nearby. This then aids a player in judging the direction where the activity is happening and respond to it.

Ever since Chapter 3, this option was broken as players were able to hear the sound of gunfire, footsteps or even healing from afar which was an advantage to several sweats who always love to rush their opponents and engage in close combat. But in a recent update in Season 3, Epic finally decided to nerf it for good.

Epic nerfs Visualize Audio range as it’s not broken anymore

In last week’s update of v21.10, Epic nerfed the range of Visualize Sound Effects option as it was one of the most broken features in the game. Players weren’t informed nor were aware of this major change that took place in Fortnite until they tried it out themselves.

The update has fixed the distance and the radius of the Visual Audio cues one gets upon going near Chests, hearing footsteps or gunfire. After the update, players will only be able to see visual cues if they are approx. 100m close to the objects or their opponents which is a major relief to casual players or campers.

While casual players or noobs enjoy this news, sweats are surely unhappy and so are players who basically need these hearing aid options in-game to help them orient their gameplay. Moreover, this major change by Epic in one of the oldest Fortnite settings was not announced in any of the patch notes or their official Twitter handle, which it should have, according to the player-base.

However, players think that this fix might be a random update as Visual Audio has always been messy in-game ever since it was added. From reboot vans sounding from miles away to footsteps being heard from a long distance, Epic still needs to put in some work to fix those audio issues.

Fortnite leak shows two major POIs getting the Reality Bloom effect soon

Reality Bloom is a phenomenon that is wildly spreading across the island as it modifies several POIs. Here are a few more locations that might get that effect in the coming weeks.

fortnite reality bloom

Fortnite Season 3 centers around the Zero Point blessing the island with colors and the mighty Reality Tree spreading its roots across the island. The bloom effect the roots create along several POIs further result in the return of classic locations from the Chapter 1 map.

The mystery behind the flora of the Reality Tree has been revolving across fan theories, leaks and concepts created by the Fortnite player-base. Loopers are having their share of fun with looting from their Reality Saplings and seeing the return of Chapter 1 locations merging with several current POIs as a result of the Reality Bloom effect.

To summarize, when the Reality Tree spreads its roots across the island and grows an extension of itself on a POI, it causes several realities to merge, which in turn merges a POI with another from another point in time. This phenomenon is coined as Reality Bloom effect by the player community.

In the past, players have seen the return of Temple Ruins, Coral Castle and now Neo Tilted in POIs like Logjam, Butter Barn etc. that have all undergone through the Reality Bloom effect. Latest leak shows two more locations that are about to undergo a major change as the roots of the Reality Tree have just begun to spread further.

Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon are about to undergo the “Reality Bloom Effect” soon

Two major POIs known for its expansive architecture and loot pool, Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound are under the radar of the Reality Tree next. The two locations will soon see the extensions of the roots of the mysterious tree and will get a Reality Bloom effect.

The effect would then bring POIs such as Tilted Town, Neo Tilted, Coral Castle, Coliseum and Lazy Links to the two locations currently on the map. These POIs are a combination of Chapter 1 & 2 locations whose realities are being merged by the Reality Tree.

Although the effect does bring back fan favorite locations back into the game without any explanation, some loopers speculate that the island might be in grave danger. The mysterious figure that appeared at the end of the Chapter 3 Season 3 trailer has not been seen before and is being called as Bloomwatcher by the player base.

Furthermore, there are theories that the Zero Point might already be causing chaos around the island and the Imagined Order was right to contain it along the Bridge. Now that it is free, the island is undergoing major changes and is running wilder than before.

The mystery of the Zero Point remains as loopers continue to enjoy their time in this madness caused by the chaotic Reality Blooms across their favorite POIs. All that the players ever wanted was the Chapter 1 map to return but it isn’t turning out the way it was supposed to be.

Fortnite Fall Guys event leaked: How to complete Crown Clash challenges

Fall Guys is one of the most popular Battle Royale games that went viral ever since its release due to its healthy gameplay and exciting obstacle based games. Its collaboration with Fortnite has been teased for over a year and leaks show that it is finally arriving in the form of an in-game event with challenges that offer rewards to those who participate in it.

The collaborations between Fortnite and several video games always keeps the player base at their feet as they wait for their favorite characters to enter the loop. Moreover these collabs result in either in-game items, challenges or Item Shop cosmetics that loopers do not hesitate spending their precious V-Bucks on.

From Street Fighter to God of War, players have seen characters from various franchises arrive to the Gaming Legends series of cosmetics to the Item Shop. Most recently, players saw a brief collab with Among Us cosmetics, as the game finally arrived to Epic Games store a while ago.

However, the collab only consisted of a Back Bling and an emote which was rather disappointing but fans still bought the cosmetics from the Item Shop, given the game’s popularity. Now that Fall Guys is free on Epic Games Store, the collab between the two is arriving in Fortnite with certain challenges that rewards the participants with in-game cosmetics.

How to complete Fall Guys Crown Clash Challenges in Fortnite Season 3

Fortnite x Fall Guys collab is set to enter Fortnite on June 29 in-game with the release of Crown Clash Challenges. The challenges will go on until July 11 which means players will have less than a couple weeks to complete all the challenges and claim their rewards.

Players would need to complete these challenges in 5 rounds. This might suggest that these challenges would take place in a Creative map rather than the traditional Battle Royale approach.

Loopers who complete these in Fortnite will get 5 free cosmetics right in their locker which will only be exclusive to those completing all the challenges. Moreover, if players have their Epic ID linked to their Fall Guys account, they will receive 3500 Kudos after the completion of these challenges, in their Fall Guys account to spend in-game.

However, the challenges also seem to affect the points one could get in Rocket League, as per the leaks. Although, this might be a possibility as Rocket League cars were spotted in a leak to appear soon in the Fortnite island back again.
