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.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Newly-added Exotics (Update)

February 24 Exotic Shuffle (Update)

On February 24, Epic shuffled some of the original and new Exotic weapon locations, giving them to new NPCs across the Fortnite map. The Storm Scout Sniper, Nighthawk Revolver, and Hop Rock Dualies now have new homes. You can view them on the map, below.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic shuffle the locations once again, so we’ll update this map and article if we see any more changes.

Here are all locations of Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold for the Fortnite Season 5 challenges.

Fortnite Fishstick Shot at love

One Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenge requires players to collect Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s where you need to go.

This week’s Fortnite challenges are a lot more difficult than ones we’ve seen in the recent past. We have to search several specific locations to help Fishstick find love and, more importantly, earn some XP.

Here are all of the Grimbles love potion locations in Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, and Stealthy Stronghold. You only need to find one, so this guide should help.

Grimble’s love potion locations

You can find one love potion in each Coral Cove, Stealthy Stronghold, and Fort Crumpet.

The first, in Fort Crumpet, can be found on the bottom floor of the fort in a roped-off room. The Coral Cove potion is located behind the main building of the unnamed POI.

In Stealthy Stronghold, the potion is located in the middle of the POI, next to a chest in one of the ruins. Here’s a map that should help you out.

Deliver the love potion to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town

Once you find the love potion, you need to deliver it to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town. The easiest place to visit is Slurpy Swamp.

Here, you’ll find the location in that boxed-room that houses slurp barrels and a Teddy bear sitting on a chair. Frequent visitors of Slurpy Swamp should know the location all too well. All you need to do is interact with the love potion and receive your XP.

This is a difficult week of challenges for Fortnite players, but the XP is well worth the grind. You can take a look at the rest of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenges here.

Ninja goes off on the Fortnite community after getting stream sniped

Ninja returned to Fortnite to find the same old stream snipers. As expected, he gave them a piece of his mind.

Ninja sounded off on stream snipers in the Fortnite community during one of his recent streams.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the primary streamers who helped Fortnite rise to the height of popularity we see it today. He’s stepped away from the game of late but often comes back to play a few rounds between his Valorant streams.

Although Ninja doesn’t take Fortnite as seriously as he once did, he still faces a large number of stream snipers who want to eliminate him for clout. Ninja has always been outspoken about stream snipers but went all-in during one of his recent Fortnite streams.

“The community – these little f***ing kids – It’s so dumb. It really is,” Ninja vented. “And the thing is, these little clout chasing losers have no idea, man. All they’re doing is harming the game. Because I’m not gonna play it. I’m not gonna stream it.”

(Clip begins at 3:38)

“Good for you, man. Get your f***ing clip, send it to your buddies,” Ninja continued. “‘We killed Ninja!’ I haven’t played the game in – ever. I don’t play it anymore. I come back and I still almost kill all of you idiots.”

Ninja went on to say that it must be far worse for players like Bugha, who won the Fortnite World Cup. If stream sniping is bad for someone like Ninja, then it must be far worse for an actual top competitive Fortnite player.

Ninja has done a lot of good for the Fortnite community, helping it become one of the biggest games of all time. Stream snipers may be a part of the reason he doesn’t play as much as he once did.

We don’t think Ninja will completely stop playing Fortnite, but the constant stream sniping is clearly getting to him. Hopefully, this doesn’t dissuade Ninja from continuing to experience the fun side of Fortnite.
