Why Fortnite Sideways Anomalies are insanely overpowered
The new Sideways Anomalies in Fortnite Season 8 are ridiculously overpowered. Here is how players can use them to their advantage.
The new Sideways Anomalies introduced at the start of Fortnite Season 8 are ridiculously overpowered. Here’s why you need to be visiting these anomalies.
Fortnite Season 8 is off to a weird start. Where the past few seasons had themes that were easy to understand, Season 8 is a black swan.
With Cubed being the Season 8 title theme, a bunch of Kevin Cubes have popped up all over the map. Like in Chapter 1, these cubes roll around the map leaving destruction in their wake. But there’s even more to this season’s madness.
Epic Games also threw in the new Sideways biomes. These are zit-lit bubbles that appear on the map that are infested with dangerous creatures. However, the Sideways Anomalies are smaller biomes that are game-changing additions to Fortnite.
What are Sideways Anomalies in Fortnite?
There are two ways players can enter The Sideways in Fortnite Season 8. The first and most popular is via The Sideways biome that appears on one of the POIs at the start of every match. These biomes do not disappear, and they are heavily populated by players and monsters.
However, The Sideways biomes are not as accessible or rewarding as the Sideways Anomalies. Sideways Anomalies appear as purple rift-like markers on the map, and there are three on the map at all times.
When approached, the rifts will expand and create a smaller Sideways biome. Cube Monsters will begin to spawn, and players will be able to spend a small amount of time inside the anomaly before it closes. Once the Sideways Anomaly closes, another one will appear on the map.
Why Sideways Anomalies overpowered
Aside from the larger Sideways biome, players tend to ignore the Fortnite Sideways Anomalies. However, players should visit every Sideways Anomaly they can. Here’s a list of reasons players should visit the Sideways Anomalies.
- Siphon health from Cube Monster eliminations
- Easily get max ammo from Cube Monsters
- Easy way to get Mythic Sideways Weapons
Every time a player kills a Cube Monster, they will gain health and shield. And since the Cube Monsters are easy to kill, players can get full health and shield super quickly. As well, Cube Monsters drop a lot of ammo when eliminated.
Players can also get overpowered Mythic Sideways weapons after visiting 1 or 2 Sideways Anomalies. But what makes these so overpowered is the small number of players that visit them.
Yes, you can get all of these benefits from the large Sideways biomes, but it’s unlikely that you’ll encounter an opponent at Fortnite Sideways Anomalies. Having a biome all to yourself takes the edge off of getting geared up.
Are you a fan of the new Sideways biomes, and have you tried the Sideways Weapons yet? Let us know your thoughts on our FortniteINTEL Twitter page.

When Fortnite Season 9 starts and Chapter 2 Season 8 ends
Here is when Fortnite Season 8 ends and Chapter 2 Season 9 starts. The season is off to a wild start, and it’s only going to get crazier.
Fortnite Season 8 just started, but it might not be your cup of tea. Here is when Fortnite Season 8 ends and Season 9 starts.
Fortnite Season 7 was out of this world in the most literal sense. But Fortnite Season 8 is even wilder. From a map filled with cubes to mysterious alternate realities, it’s already surpassed Season 7 on the crazy scale.
But that doesn’t mean Season 8 is for everyone. Some players are already asking when Fortnite Season 8 ends and season 9 starts. This article will answer both those questions and more!
Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.
When Does Fortnite Season 8 End?
Fortnite Season 8 will end on December 5, 2021. This will allow for Fortnite Season 9 to start just-in-time for the annual Holiday event.
Since Fortnite is reaching a climactic point in its overarching storyline, players can expect an end-of-season event. Fortnite Season 7 featured an interactive experience, and a similar event will likely be held at the end of Season 8.
When Does Fortnite Season 9 Start?
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 9 will start on December 6, 2021. Keeping with the recent trend, Fortnite Season start the day after the current season ends. It wouldn’t make sense for Epic Games to delay the start of Season 9 past December 6th.
Fortnite has made a habit recently of jumping from one season to the next with no breaks in between. There will likely be some downtime between Season 8 and 9, and it could be as long as 13 hours like the end of Season 7.
Is There a Fortnite Season 8 Live Event?
As of right now, we don’t know. We likely won’t know anything about a live event until close to the end of Fortnite Season 8. However, we will keep this article updated with the latest information.
What Season is Fortnite on?
Fortnite is currently in Chapter 2 Season 8. This is the eighth season of the second chapter which started after Chapter 1 Season 10. While most players refer to this season as “Season 8”, it’s technically Season 18.
As well, the Fortnite Crew Pack is starting a storyline connected to Midas that will span the next three months. This is the same time frame that Fortnite Season 8 will take place. This means the new Fortnite season could be related to another one of Midas’ plans.

How to get Fortnite Inflate-A-Bulls and how to use them
Epic Games have added another disguise to Fortnite Season 8 following the v17.10 update, and they’re called Inflate-A-Bulls.
If you ever wanted to tip-toe around the Fortnite world hidden in a cow costume, well, now is your chance!
On July 13, 2021, Epic posted a new update on their official live blog, confirming the Inflate-A-Bull has been added to the game.
Now, you’re going to need to know how to use it, and where to find them – because they look like a lot of fun.
How to use Fortnite Inflate-A-Bull
Fortnite Inflate-A-Bulls can be attached to your back and can be – shock horror – inflated to bounce or roll away from dangerous scenarios.
Essentially, they may save your life during close gunfights.
Even if a player shoots your way and pops the inflatable, you will be protected from the damage.
Epic have also released a quick tip for players to follow as well, to get the most out of this strange disguise. They posted: “Tip: Rolling downhill with an Inflate-A-Bull is a LOT faster than just running downhill”.
Where to find Fortnite Inflate-A-Bull
These pesky disguises can be found in two ways: IO Chests and normal Chests.
However, there is one NPC on the Fortnite island selling these as well – Rick Sanchez. For those who don’t know, Sanchez can be found at the IO Base east of Weeping Woods (seen above).
