Fortnite Patch v6.21 has went live and huge discoveries are being made in regards to upcoming events and content. Discovered amongst the files are assets for an in-game Butterfly Event, Nexus Structure, and more.
It appears the Cube aka Kevin will be blossoming into a Butterfly, or at least that’s the analogy that the developers of Fortnite are using internally to name the assets for the upcoming in-game event.
These assets indicate that the Cube will continue to crack until it reaches a point in which it will cause a large explosion
StaticMesh_Butterfly_LightCones – This asset indicates the the Cube’s explosion will be very bright as light shines through the cracks.
StaticMesh_Nexus_Malestrom – This asset indicates that a powerful whirlpool will form in the Lake below the Cube’s current position.
It seems that once the Cube has erupted there will be a very apparent after effect in the air.
Butterfly_Background – This asset may accompany the below StarField asset.
StaticMesh_Butterfly_Splash_Expand – It’s not known if this asset will effect the water below the Cube or is a splash effect played on the Cube during its explosion.
Butterfly_StarField – This seems to be an asset which is placed in the environment after the Cube has exploded.
Finally, after all is seemingly done. The only change which has currently been found in the files is that the Floating Island above Leaky Lake will have exploded into multiple pieces.
Here’s what the Lake may look like after it has been reformed.
Further assets indicate that the Cube will spin, a Rainbow will spawn at the Lake, and at least one Point of Interest on the map will swap.
Stay tuned for any further information and be sure to attend the upcoming one-time in-game event!
Fortnite leak teases return of Star Wars Lightsabers
The Star Wars Lightsabers could make a return to Fortnite in the near future according to a notable data miner.
A Fortnite data miner has reported that Epic Games readded the Star Wars Lightsabers into Fortnite’s files after the v19.10 update.
Fortnite has held quite a few Star Wars crossovers, but none as ambitious as the live event in Chapter 2 Season 1. This introduced Lightsaber’s into the loot pool for a short period of time.
They were also available for an even shorter period of time from May 2nd – 5th during Chapter 2 Season 2. Since then, players have eagerly awaited their return.
Now, a Fortnite data miner thinks Lightsabers could return to Fortnite sometime soon due to a change in the game’s files.
Lightsabers may return to Fortnite
Epic Games removes weapon and item data from the files when that item isn’t in use. And when the data is readded to the files, it’s a good indicator players will see their return soon.
Fortnite data miner FN_Assist recently discovered that the data for Lightsabers was added after the most recent update. In a tweet, FN_Assist outlines all of the data that was readded.
They claim that this could mean one of two things. Either Star Wars Lightsabers will return to Fortnite in the near future. Or Epic is working on a weapon based on the lightsaber’s pre-existing mechanics.
If Lightsabers are added to Fortnite, we can expect it to accompany a return of skins and maybe some other Star Wars announcement.
Epic Games usually adds crossover content to promote whoever they are collaborating with. Whether it be a new movie or TV series, the Lightsabers could be used as a promotional tool for new Star Wars content.

Fortnite: Where to find Pizza Party item and what it does
Fortnite Chapter 3 is adding a new Pizza Party item that allows players to restore their shields through the power of pizza.
If you’re wanting to switch up your diet in Fortnite, you can use the Pizza Party item to gain shield and fill your stomach.
One of Fortnite’s mascots is Tomatohead who is also the mascot for the fictional restaurant Pizza Pit. This is a POI that has appeared in Fortnite for several seasons.
It’s one of the many fictional restaurants that have appeared in-game along with Durrr Burger, Sitcks, and Butter Barn.
However, players haven’t been able to enjoy any of the food from these restaurants until now. Pizza Pit’s ovens are on and players can finally enjoy eight slices of cheesy goodness.
How to get Pizza Party item in Fortnite
The Pizza Party is a pizza box containing eight slices of pizza. In addition to cheese and sauce, each slice is topped with a Shield Mushroom that restores 50 shield.
Each box has 8 slices, but each slice can only get players up to 50 shield similar to minis. Players can find Pizza Party boxes in the normal loot pool.
As well, players can purchase a Pizza Box for 50 gold from the Tomatohead NPC. He is located in Tilted Tower, and he only has 4 Pizza Boxes in stock.
According to Hypex, the Pizza Party box will be added to Fortnite on Tuesday, January 25.
For a measly 200 gold, players can pick up 1,600 shield. However, we don’t know how long it takes to eat a slice. And this would also require players to give up two item slots.
