Final stages of Fortnite’s Dusty Depot rocket build leaked



The final stages of the Dusty Depot rocket construction have been revealed and it looks like fans are in for a wild end of season event.

Shortly after the v10.30 update, Fortnite players noticed that The Visitor’s base within Dusty Depot had started to become a construction site for a rocket. It started off with a few parts of a BRUTE Mech, before transforming into a fully blown launching pad for the spacecraft. 

While the Visitor will be hoping that the launch goes significantly better than the season four in-game event, it appears as if there will be upgrades to the rocket this time around as the final stages of its construction have been revealed in a leak.

According to images tweeted by popular leaker FortTory, the rocket will take ahold of Dusty Depot – leaving nothing near its launch pad to be looted or claimed by players – and letting the Visitor pack up everything that had placed down in the meantime. 

That strange metal floor ring that was discovered following the  v10.30 update, will be used to hold the craft in place before it’s final voyage away from the battle royale island – yet, that’s not all.

FortTory also revealed additional images of what the completed rocket will look like from above Dusty Depot. 

The scaffolding that has appeared around the point of interest will be completed to look like a loading area so that whoever pilots the rocket can actually enter in the first place before taking off.  

The rocket itself will include two thrusters, likely in order to give it some extra propulsion, while a purple cone will also appear on top – completing the differences from the season four event.

Just what part the rocket will play in the season ten event remains to be seen, but it appears as if it will at least launch prior to the switch from season ten to season eleven.

Provided there are no delays or changes to the season schedule, Fortnite Season X is expected to draw to a close around Thursday, October 10. However, this could very well change as Epic Games has not confirmed an official ending point.


This Crash Pad trick gives players free kills in competitive Fortnite

Another Fortnite Crash Pad technique has reared its head.



We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Crash Pads are the most useful item in Fortnite. You can combine them with Bouncers for ultimate mobility, use them to get into an opponent’s box, save yourself from fall damage, and – as it turns out – even more.

Just when we think that we’ve discovered all of the uses for Crash Pads, another one pops up. This new strategy is growing in popularity within the competitive Fortnite community, but is still under-utilized at the time of writing. Naturally, World Cup winner Bugha is on the cutting edge of the trick.

If you didn’t catch the strategy from the clip above, players are using Crash Pads to assassinate players above them in a stacked end-game lobby. All you need to do is make a hole in your structure, build a ramp, and throw a Crash Pad.

One of the players above you will, more than likely, fall through the broken floor and right into your lap. It’s a free refresh for your team.

This is a relatively high-level play, so you don’t need to worry about it if you’re only playing public matches. If you’re preparing for the Season 4 Trios FNCS, however, you should practice the technique and be aware that it might happen to you.

Players routinely find themselves stacked on top of one another in competitive Fortnite. I’d be surprised if we don’t see one or two of these plays in the FNCS Finals this season.

Ghost Gaming signs NA-East Fortnite pro Nanolite

Ghost Gaming adds Nanolite to their growing Fortnite roster.



Earlier in the year, it seemed like Ghost Gaming was one of the organizations divesting from professional Fortnite. Several organizations let the contracts of their Fortnite pros expire, while others were waiting in the wings to scoop them up.

Now, several months later, it seems like Ghost was only preparing to reload on their Fortnite talent. Most recently, they signed NA-East pro Nanolite. Ghost Gaming’s newest recruit has been rising the ranks, over the past year, putting together a third-place performance in the DreamHack Anaheim 2020 tournament.

Nanolite has, reportedly, earned over $38,000 from 62 events over the course of his Fortnite career. He also sits, squarely, at number 50 on the FortniteTracker NA-East Power Rankings list.

With the signing, Ghost’s Fortnite roster is surprisingly deep. They now boast Kamo, Sean, Trapped, Zarby, Nittle, Clarity, and Nanolite. We’ll have to wait and see if they’ll stay steady here or continue to add to their growing roster of Fortnite talent.

Organizations have been signing Fortnite free agents left and right. It’s clear that Fortnite isn’t going anywhere as an esport, despite the lowering of the prize pool compared to 2019. Who will be the next free agent to fall? Only time will tell.

Marvel X Fortnite comic teases unreleased hero skins

A new Marvel comic teases the release of Captain Marvel, Ghost Rider, and Black Panther Fortnite skins.



We’re around the halfway point in Fortnite Season 4, with some of the most popular Marvel heroes already existing within the Fortnite universe. We’ve seen Groot, Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, Storm, and Mystique included in the Season 4 Battle Pass, with Silver Surfer, Blade, Captain America, and others entering through the Item Shop and past seasons.

There are only a few tier-one Marvel heroes missing from Fortnite, but they might not be out for too long. We already have hero abilities for Venom and Black Panther, which has led fans to assume that they’ll be available later in the season.

Venom in Fortnite

Recently, the VP and Head of Creative at Marvel Games, Bill Roseman, tweeted the cover art for Avengers #37, which will reportedly feature a crossover with Fortnite characters. This could have a profound impact on the lore of Fortnite, so we’ll have to wait and see what it holds when the comic releases on October 4.

On the cover, however, you can see Fortnite characters flying across the Battle Royale island with some of the Marvel heroes that are playable characters in the game. There are a few noteworthy exceptions, however: Captain Marvel, Ghost Rider, and Black Panther aren’t in the game, yet.

With the rest of these Marvel characters already being a part of Fortnite, we can only assume that these heroes will be immortalized in the game as well. Black Panther was already rumored – his hero ability is in the game – but the rest of them are completely new additions.

If this teaser comes to fruition, then we’ll be seeing all three of these heroes in the Item Shop before the end of the season. We can only hope!
