A Reddit user has revealed a secret the orb was holding with a spectrometer.

With the latest 7.20 update coming to Fortnite there were numerous changes to the game.

While a lot of the changes focused on bug fixes and adding new things in, players also noticed some changes to the map itself.

One major thing fans might notice is a giant ball floating above Polar Peak. Players are able to use the Grappler on it and interact with it but can’t do much else.

In comes Reddit user MomoRM8.

In a post on Reddit, MomoRM8 took the sound emitting from the orb and put it on a spectrograph. The graph reveals the sounds actually create the Ice King from Fortnite.

The Ice King is a cosmetic in the Battle Pass that is rewarded to players who reach Tier 100.

Epic Games has shown the Ice King on numerous occasions and he might end up being linked to the upcoming Ice Storm Challenges.

A leak has revealed this orb will break and will possibly start an in-game event. As with all leaks, take them with a grain of salt until officially announced.

Another interesting thing found in Fortnite with this update was the iceberg to the south of Happy Hamlet. The iceberg had a universal health bar and it was quickly destroyed by players.

Underneath the iceberg is a bunker that currently has no entrance. We’re sure Epic will reveal more about what this is, and more about the orb, in future updates.

  1. just because the spectrogram shows ice king doesn’t mean he’s in it. if he was then why is he in the battlepass? preetty sure the sphere will grow bigger and creates snow storms as it moves around see in the new loading screen ”ice king using ”magic” to create a huge storm when he’s on the castle at polar” you guys said that in your last article. and to show more how the sphere creates a snow storm: build under it or above it and your screen will be completely white like a smoke grenade. is this enough to theory whats gonna happen next?
