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.

How to enter vaults without a keycard in Fortnite Season 3

The Fortnite vault glitch has returned for Season 3; this time, with a different method.

Published

on

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 was the first season to introduce vaults. It was also the first season in which players found an exploit to get into the vaults without a keycard. This method was popularized by YouTuber OrangeGuy, who showed fans how use a boat and a few building materials to enter a vault without killing the boss.

This exploit existed for most of Season 2, but was patched when season 3 came out. Well, as you may expect, it didn’t take long for players to figure out another way to get into the vault without a card. Instead of a boat, this exploit requires a helicopter.

For preparation, you’ll need a Helicopter, Upgrade Bench, and a teammate. Here are the steps you’ll need to complete in order to get into the vault without a card:

Step 1: Destroy the tile covering the vault you want to enter
Step 2: Land the helicopter on the broken floor
Step 3: Switch seats and begin to build
Step 4: Have a teammate throw the Upgrade Bench underneath the helicopter

If you complete these steps correctly, you should be pushed under the map and into the vault. Here’s a tutorial from Glitch King that will show you the step-by-step walkthrough.

Getting out of the vault is now your problem. This glitch is meant to surprise and eliminate an enemy, but you could always send your teammate to kill the boss and let you out if no one comes by. This isn’t the most broken method in the world, as you’ll be trapped if you don’t open the vault the normal way. Still, it can make for a funny clip or two.

This method takes a bit more setup than last season’s, but we may still see a streamer or two surprised by someone hiding in a closed vault. Only time will tell.

Bugha becomes the first esports pro to sign with Gary V’s VaynerGaming

Fortnite World Cup solo champion, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, has signed with Gary Vaynerchuk’s agency, VaynerSports.

Fortnite pro, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, became a household name overnight when he took home the first Fortnite World Cup Solos competition in 2019. The relatively unknown pro catapulted to the top of the Twitch charts when he returned home for the event, $3 million richer.

Now, Bugha can add another first to his resume – the first gamer signed to Gary Vaynerchuk’s new esports agency, VaynerGaming. The announcement came on July 14, the same day that the entrepreneur announced his company’s entrance into the gaming space.

IMG: Fortnite Twitter

In a press release that announced the new venture, Vaynerchuk stated, “I have been quietly paying attention to the gaming industry for over a decade, building relationships and following the trends. One of the most exciting things about it, for me, is the gamers themselves. And when I look at the culture, the interest in the sector from other athletes, artists, celebrities — it is enormous. This is a very significant expansion for VaynerSports.”

Bugha will be the first of many gamers to be represented by VaynerGaming as it expands into this new territory. We can expect some other high-profile signings from Fortnite and other top video games. It’s exciting to see gaming break through to the mainstream in this way, and could mean big things for the future of the Fortnite community.

Patch Notes

Epic disable the elusive Golden Mushroom in Fortnite

The Golden Mushroom has reportedly been disabled in all Fortnite modes.

Published

Almost all Fortnite players know about the Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite Chapter 2 – the rarest item that Epic have ever added to the game. It’s so rare that fans wondered if it even existed for a while. Since its release, there’s still only been a handful of recorded sightings of the Mythic Goldfish.

In Season 3, Epic added another rare item to the game: The Golden Mushroom. According to data miners, this mushroom has the same chance to spawn as the Mythic Goldfish, making it one of the rarest items in all of Fortnite. To this day, we’ve only seen one clip of the Golden Mushroom outside of Creative Mode.

When the mushroom first came out, SypherPK put a county on its head. He offered his fans cash if they could find the mushroom in-game, and a bonus if they found it in a joinable Battle Lab match. Here’s the only known clip of the Golden Mushroom in Fortnite.

When Sypher picked it up and put it in his inventory, the Golden Mushroom turned into a regular old mushroom that only healed for five shield. This bug is likely why the item was disabled on July 13, according to data miner reports.

One of the rarest items in Fortnite should offer a reward for finding it. It seemed like this one had an issue that led to it becoming a disappointment. On July 13, Hypex tweeted that Epic pushed a hotfix to disable the Golden Mushroom.

At the time of writing, there’s still no mention of the Golden Mushroom on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello Board. The hunt appears to be stalled – at least, for the time being. We’ll let you know when the Mushroom comes back to Fortnite but, for now, you can stop searching for it.
