Fortnite Doomsday Event leaks: Agency destruction, audio files & more

These Fortnite Doomsday Event leaks give us more information about the Agency destruction, gameplay cues, and more.

The Fortnite Doomsday Event is this weekend, which means that everyone is primed and ready to see what happens when Season 2 comes to a close. The Fortnite v12.61 update brought more details to the game files, where data miners were waiting to tell the world.

There’s a lot to digest in these updates, so let’s jump right into it. Keep in mind that these are spoilers. Stop reading now you want to be completely surprised by the event. You have been warned.

Agency destruction

As many fans guessed, the Agency will be a casualty in the Doomsday Event. Data miners found mesh files that pointed to broken walls, and soon found complete renderings of a destroyed Agency in the game files.

This isn’t too much of a surprise to most players. It was assumed that Midas would hit the switch and take The Agency with him. The consensus was that these Mythic POIs wouldn’t make it past Season 2.

Lighting, debris, and more

Obviously, if The Agency is going down, something will have to destroy it. Data miner FortTory provided some of the game files that point to gameplay cues. These cues involve lightning strikes, gravity rocks, energy impacts, and more.

The most interesting line in these files is something called “final teleport,” suggesting we’ll be moving around the map over the course of the event. We may even take a quick trip to the Chapter 1 map, although that’s unlikely and shouldn’t be expected.

Audio files

Audio files accompany the gameplay. We got a few different audio leaks, including one that shows the countdown to the event. It sounds a lot like the original Rocket Launch, with the addition of some typical nonsense from the Henchmen.

There will, likely, be plenty more leaks where these came from. The update is still a few hours old, and more will come out ahead of the Doomsday Event.

As always, we’ll keep you posted with everything you need to know. Make sure you’re ready for the event on Saturday. We suspect that this will be one that you won’t want to miss.

Fortnite Spring breakout

Fortnite is hosting its first-ever Spring event: the Spring Breakout. Here’s everything you need to know about the rewards, skins, featured tournament, and everything else.

We’re into Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 and Epic are just now hosting their first official Spring event, called the Spring Breakout. This new event will feature some fan-favorite returning items, new skins, quests, and a tournament.

Here’s everything you need to know about the event, start date, and more.

Fortnite Spring Breakout release date

Fortnite Spring Breakout

Spring Breakout is set to hit Fortnite on March 30, just in time for Easter. In the promotional material for the event, Epic revealed a handful of new skins that will come to the Item Shop over the next week or two.

These skins will have customizable options, which is good news for players with some V-Bucks to spend. Of course, if you want one of the older bunnies, they will probably be a part of the Spring Breakout Item Shop as well.

Quests and free rewards

Fortnite Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe

This might be the first time that Epic have officially hosted a Spring event, but we know what to expect in Fortnite when Easter rolls around. Epic have added the Egg Launcher back to the game every Spring since the game was first released.

The Spring Breakout Event will offer some seasonal challenges, however, which we haven’t seen in previous seasons. These challenges will give you a chance to earn free cosmetics, including the Tactical Quaxes Pickaxe. We’ll post a guide to these challenges when they go live.

Spring Breakout Cup

Spring-Breakout-Cup

The Spring Breakout Cup will kick off April 2. It’s a Duos competition and will replace the Friday Night Bragging Rights tournament for the week.

As usual, players have three hours to complete ten matches. Players who finish at the top of their region will earn the Webster Outfit and Mecha-Feathers Back Bling early and for free.

We’ll update you with more information about the Spring Breakout Cup, challenges, and rewards associated with the event. Make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you don’t miss any of the latest news.

Fortnite Season 5 is ending with a bang – literally. Epic are celebrating the end of the latest Fortnite season with an Exotic Weapon sale and an event called the Zero Crisis Finale.

Fortnite Season 6 is right around the corner, with players looking forward to what the new season of Fortnite will bring. The Zero Point looks to be destabilizing fast, and Agent Jonesy will be getting a conclusion to his story.

Ahead, we’ll cover everything we know about the recently-announced Zero Crisis Finale and the ongoing Exotic Weapon sale to close out the season.

Zero Crisis Finale

Epic Games released a blog post on March 9, announcing what appears to be the season-ending event for Fortnite Season 5. The Zero Crisis will end on March 16 and the new season will begin as we play through an interactive solo event.

Interestingly, Epic have described the event as, “our most ambitious story cinematic yet,” and said that it will, “shape Reality as we know it.” We’re excited to see what this means.

Exotic Sale

You can take a look at all of the new prices below, and find all of their locations here. Some Exotics are better than others, so you might as well try them all before the season ends.

Fortnite leak reveals details about the Season 5 end event

As this season ends and Fortnite Season 6 begins, new event leaks reveal what could be in store for us at the end of Season 5.

Published

Fortnite Zero Point

Fortnite Season 5 is nearly over, and new leaks are showing us what to expect as far as a season-ending event that will lead into Season 6.

Season X is here, and the world is destabilizing, fast!

As Season 5 winds down, the exposed Zero Point is becoming more and more dangerous. Following the v15.50 update, players noticed that the Zero Point is now extending to all of the portals on the island.

According to leaks, however, this is only the beginning of what’s about to happen. Fortnite data miners have found files relating to the season-ending event, which could have a major effect on the island.

Fortnite Season 5 end event

Epic Games have been regularly giving us season-ending events since the first event more than two years ago. With so much activity happening on the island in Season 5, it’s safe to assume that we’ll be getting another one when the season ends on March 15.

We should be getting a fair amount of build-up before the event takes place, which was what data miners found when they dug into the v15.50 game files.

The first effect that should be coming soon relates to the NPCs around the island. According to data miner, Mang0e, the NPCs will be “teleported to wacky places by the Zero Point.

It’s safe to assume that some of the NPCs will be removed from their traditional locations and sent somewhere, well, wacky. Players have already begun posting screenshots of some NPCs walking out in the open – far away from where they should be.

Another data miner, FortTory, found some files that suggest that our audio will be distorted by the Zero Point. In-game communications may begin to sound strange as you get closer.

This effect seems to be coming in the future. We tested voice-comms around the Zero Point and haven’t seen any changes yet.

Some players are speculating that these pulses or “mini-events” could take the place of a major, season-ending event. We would be surprised if this was the case, but we’ve seen a few seasons end without events in the recent past.

Of course, we’ll be keeping an eye on data miners and the Zero Point ahead of the scheduled end to Season 5 on March 15. You’ll be the first to know if we learn more.
