All signs point to the Black Hole returning ahead of Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite Season 4 will probably end with a bang, leading to downtime before Season 5 – similar to the Black Hole.

Published

on

The event that will end Fortnite Season 4 is only a week away. Fortnite has confirmed that Galactus will arrive on the island on December 1, likely bringing destruction with him.

Anyone who regularly follows Fortnite news knows that this event is set to be the biggest in history. The files containing the Nexus War event are ten times larger than “The End” event, which was the largest event at its time. It’s also significantly larger than the Travis Scott event, which stunned players when it released.

With this being the case, we can probably all agree that it won’t be business as usual once the event concludes. Galactus will probably achieve his goal of, at least, reaching the Zero Point, and our heroes will escape by the skin of their teeth.

The only problem with this is that the Season 4 event doesn’t lead us directly into Season 5. There’s a reported 36-hour gap between this season and the next one. This happens to be the exact amount of downtime that followed the Black Hole.

Data miners have also begun reporting that the next season may happen quicker than that – that there will be 10 hours between seasons rather than 36. Whichever ends up being the case, we’re in for some downtime and, likely, the end of Chapter 2.

When we say that there’s going to be another Black Hole, we don’t necessarily mean it literally. We may not enter a Black Hole for the second time, but all signs point to something happening and causing Fortnite to go down ahead of the Season 5 release.

We all know how often Fortnite tournaments and competitive events happen. There was a Cash Cup, Marvel tournament, or another way to play competitive Fortnite nearly every day in Season 4. There are no events scheduled between December 1 at 4 PM EST (the time of the event) and December 3 at 4 AM EST (the presumed release time for Season 5).

Data miners are even reporting that the lobby for the end of Season X – the Black Hole lobby – returned to the game files with the most recent update. According to iFireMonkey, the text related to this string said, “To be Continued… In Season 5.” What does that suggest if not some downtime between seasons?

This wasn’t the only past event that was added to the game files. We assume that Fortnite will bring us back through the game’s eras and the biggest events from those times. This lobby change, however, only adds to the evidence of significant downtime between seasons.

As of now, the Fortnite Season 5 release date is still up in the air. Most of the signs we’re seeing point to Season 5 releasing on December 3 at 4 AM EST – 36 hours after the event that will end Season 4.

Fortnite’s Fish Fiesta Wild Week makes fishing easier than ever

Fortnite Season 6’s second Wild Week is here and it puts a major emphasis on fishing. Grab a rob and gear up for the Fish Fiesta.

Fortnite Season 6’s second Wild Week has started, and it’s putting a huge emphasis on fishing. Fishing can be a great way to get healing items and weapons, and the Fish Fiesta Wild Week will make it easier than ever.

The first Wild Week started during Season 6 week 8. It put a heavy emphasis on flammable weaponry and introduced the Flare Gun back into the loot pool. While also challenging players to destroy hundreds of structures with fire, it also forced players to use hard mats over wood.

Now, wild week two is here and it’s not nearly as destructive. The Flare Gun has been removed, Flame Bows aren’t as prevalent, and Firefly Jars have been taken out of chests. On the surface, Fish Fiesta Wild Week might seem tame compared to last week. However, the buffs to fishing will change how Fortnite is played for the next week.

Fish Fiesta Wild Week bonuses

The Fish Fiesta Wild Week makes several changes to emphasize fishing. The first is increasing the Fishing Spot spawn rate making them more prevalent. Fishing spots also have a minimum of 3 catches before closing and a maximum of 6.

Players are more likely to catch fish from Fishing Spots than anything else, and Rare fish are more likely to be caught. Weapons from Fishing Spots will only be Rare rarity or greater. And players don’t have to worry about Fishing Spots giving them ammo instead of something more valuable.

Lastly, Pro Rods will spawn more frequently from barrels and chests. This will allow players to catch even better loot from open waters and fishing holes. When taking a closer look at fishing week, this could have a major impact on gameplay.

The best way to get loot before Fish Fiesta Wild Week was by entering buildings and opening chests. However, with the increased rarity of weapons and heals, fishing is king for the next seven days. There’s no chance of getting grey or green weapons from fishing spots, and the healing fish are much faster than potions or bandages.

Players should expect hot drop locations to change from Pleasant Park and Retail Row to more aquatic destinations like Sweaty Sands, Lazy Lake, and Dirty Docks. It’s time to grab a pole, get fishing, and gear up.

Epic Games has announced that another member of the Teen Titans, Beast Boy, will be coming to Fortnite. Players can earn exclusive Beast Boy and Raven cosmetics by competing in an upcoming tournament.

Beast Boy and Raven are long-standing members of the DC superhero group the Teen Titans. Raven was revealed to be in Fortnite at the start of Chapter 2 Season 6. She can be unlocked as a playable character by reaching tier 72 of this season’s Battle Pass.

The appearance of Batman and several other DC characters has also been a large focus of Season 6. Now, a couple of members of the Teen Titans are being highlighted as Beast Boy enters the mix. Fortnite teased his appearance through a series of comic panels and has officially revealed his cosmetic set.

Earning Beast Boy & Raven cosmetics

Just like Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4, Beast Boy’s cosmetic set is up for grabs as a part of an upcoming tournament. However, there are other rewards that don’t require a top-placing position to earn. There are also exclusive rewards that can only be obtained by participating in the tourney.

The Teen Titans Cup is a Duos tournament set to take place on May 12. Players who participate in the tourney will earn the Raven Spray. Players who earn 8 points of more will unlock the BBRae Loading Screen. And the top placing teams will be rewarded with the Beast Boy Outfit and Couch Titan Back Bling.

For those who don’t manage to come out on top, there’s still a way to get the Beast Boy set. While the loading screen and spray are exclusive to the tourney, the Beast Boy set will be for sale in the Item Shop on May 13.

The Beast Boy skin comes with two styles and a built-in emote. The set also includes the BB’s Beast Bat pickaxe which can only be obtained by purchasing it in the item shop. All three items can be purchased as a discounted bundle once the cosmetics release.

Prop Hunt has long been part of collective gaming culture. The mode has finally arrived in Fortnite and it looks to be a whole lot of fun!

Due to some mishaps on the part of Epic, Fortnite has been suffering some negative strides. In order to switch things back around, the devs need a successive streak of victories.

Prop Hunt has been a much asked for ‘just for fun’ mode and Epic is now delivering. This, along with great v9.30 changes, could really bring back a lot of excitement for Fortnite!

Fortnite’s Creative mode is a stirring pot of creative genius and remarkable talents. For the lucky few chosen by Epic, the creations made in Creative become legendary adventures played by millions.

Prop Hunt has been brought to life by a team of talented Creative creators. The team at StrayKite managed to create a replica of the classic experience that plays like a dream.

The mode is available to play now in Creative & Playground lobbies.

The basic rules of Prop Hunt are as follows:

  • Props are given a set amount of time to hide before Seekers try to find them
  • Each Prop can switch between differing objects a certain amount of times
  • Seekers try to find all the Props before the time limit is reached. If they manage to do so, the Seekers win.
  • If all Props are not found, the Props win.

Epic Games has not given any end-date for the Prop Hunt island feature, but the prop hunt mode can always be played from here on out. This can be done by using the Island Code provided by Epic (6069-9263-9110).

Using the Creative mode’s configuration settings, you can also create custom Prop Hunt game types. This includes longer Seeker time limits, stricter win conditions, banned props, and more. More options will be added for the mode in the future.
