Fortnite leaks link Galactus event to the Black Hole & Travis Scott

These Fortnite leaks suggest the Black Hole and Astroworld will return during the next season-ending event.

Fortnite Season 4 is winding to a close with the final patch landing on November 18. As expected, this update brought event files to the game and data miners are already pouring over them.

Most Fortnite data miners like to keep major spoilers away from their audience, but one thing’s clear: this is going to be a massive event. By all accounts, Season 4’s end will rival the biggest events in the history of the game.

We’d be foolish to try to guess exactly what will happen when Galactus finally lands on the Fortnite island, but we do have a few clues as to what will be included. For instance, multiple data miners have discussed – or hinted at – a relationship between Chapter 2 Season 4 and Chapter 1 Season X.

According to iFireMonkey, there’s a file in the game called “RockyRidge” – the same file that was used in the lobby during Season X. For those who don’t remember, this was the Black Hole lobby that sucked us in after a few moments.

ShiinaBR, another Fortnite data miner, tweeted a cryptic video of the Season X lobby screen with a couple of eyeball emojis – likely hinting at the same file that iFireMonkey tweeted about.

All of this makes us excited for the upcoming Fortnite event. We don’t know exactly what will happen, but it makes sense up until this point.

The next bit is more confusing and we can’t tell whether or not it will play a role in the Galactus event. According to a couple of data miners, the Astroworld image from the Travis Scott event was also added back into the Fortnite game files.

We’re nearly certain that the Black Hole will have something to do with the Galactus event. If the next event will be the biggest in history, it only makes sense that it will relate to the previous “biggest event in Fortnite history.”

As for how Travis Scott and Astroworld work into all of this; your guess is as good as ours. We’ve seen several “who would win?” memes of Travis Scott fighting Galactus. Is this too far-fetched to actually happen? Probably, but we’re grasping at straws.

It seems like we’ll have to wait until the event in early December to know for sure. In the meantime, follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, so you never miss out on the latest Fortnite news.

Thanks to a recent leak, we now have details regarding the end of Chapter 3 Season 1, including the specifics of a live event.

Fortnite is known for its flashy and exciting live events. Whether they’re at the start of a season or the end of one, these events are a spectacle to behold.

These live events have evolved over time. They started with a live rocket launch in Chapter 1 Season 4. And now, players are taken on immersive trips in front of Ariana Grande and Travis Scott.

However, the most exciting events are the ones focused on the game’s storyline. The events that end seasons are among the most anticipated, and usually draw in the most players.

Will there be a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event?

With the final update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, we now have confirmation that there will be a live event at the end of the season!

With the Resistance fighting back against the IO and taking back POIs, the waging war is pretty easy to follow. The live event will be the culmination of the season long war between the IO and the Resistance.

What will happen during the Season 2 live event?

All season, the Resistance has pushed back the IO’s invading forces. With the latest update, the IO have lost control of every POI except Command Cavern and a new POI at Loot Lake.

This new POI is home to yet another Doomsday Device that the IO intends to set off. The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping this device. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 start date

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is slated to end on June 3, 2022. This means Season 3 could start as early as June 4.

However, notable leaker Shinna believes there will be an extended period of downtime between the seasons. Usually, players participate in the live event and can hop into the servers a couple of hours later. But that may not be the case this time around.

Fortnite Wild Weeks are back, and the first Chapter 3 Season 1 Wild Week focuses on the use of Primal Bows from Chapter 2 Season 6.

Epic Games is bringing back Wild Weeks at the end of Chapter 3 Season 1, and we have the details for the upcoming Fortnite event.

Wild Weeks have become a tradition in Fortnite that spices up the end of each season. For three weeks, Epic Games gives each week a specific theme that drastically changes one aspect of the game.

In the past, we’ve seen Wild Weeks geared toward fishing, fire, and mobility. Thanks to a few leaks, we have an idea of what to expect when it comes to the first Wild Week in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1.

Fortnite Mythic Bows Unstable Explosive

Fortnite Bownanza Wild Week

According to iFireMonkey, the first Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Wild Week is called Bownanza week. It will focus on the use of bows, specifically Primal Bows introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.

If this Wild Week is to be like the ones in the past, players will see a drastic increase in the spawn rate of bows. However, since crafting isn’t of use in Chapter 3 Season 1, it will be interesting to see if players can craft new bows.

Fortnite Bownanza week challenges

The Bownanza Wild Week challenges have already been leaked. The tweet below shows all six challenges.

Each challenge will reward the player with 8,000 experience points. Like in the past, the Wild Week challenges will be a great way to reach Battle Pass level 100 and beyond.

That’s currently everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1’s first Wild Week. We will keep this story updated as more information becomes available.

Is Fortnite Season 8 the end of Chapter 2?

Fans are starting to believe that Season 8 will be the end of Fortnite Chapter 2. Let’s take a look at all of the reasons this might be true.

Players are starting to believe that Fortnite Season 8 is the end of Chapter 2, but do their theories hold up?

To people who don’t play Fortnite, it may just seem like another Battle Royale. However, hardcore fans know that Fortnite has rich lore.

Fortnite uses unconventional storytelling to carry its narrative. While the goal of the game is to be the last player standing, The Island tells a story of its own. Fortnite has split its story into two chapters and splits those chapters into seasons.

Now, players believe that Fortnite’s second chapter is coming to an end. We will dive into context clues, cosmetic descriptions, and blog posts to see if Season 8 really is the end of Chapter 2.

Fortnite Crew Season 9 Description

A lot of players believe that a single line of text in the latest Fortnite Crew promo debunks the Chapter 3 theories. In the November 2021 Crew Pack, a promo image states players will have access to the Chapter 2 Season 9 Battle Pass.

However, only the in-game promo image references Chapter 2 Season 9. It doesn’t appear anywhere on the official blog post.

That being said, it is unlike Epic Games to reference a specific season if it does not plan to have that season. As well, Epic could have just said “Next Battle Pass” and left off “For Chapter 2 Season 9”.

Choice wording and coincidence points to Chapter 3

Now, let’s get into why players think Season 8 is the end of Fortnite Chapter 2. The first reason is the choice of wording Donald Mustard used in a tweet. He was expressing his excitement for Fortnite’s future.

In classic Mustard fashion, he stated that Chapter 2 Season 8, and the two after it are his favorite parts. Fans of Fortnite find it odd that he wouldn’t just say Seasons 9 and 10. This leads players to believe that the two chapters following Season 8 will be in Chapter 3.

As well, many players have analyzed videos from popular Fortnite content creators. Epic Games sometimes gives larger creators a heads up when it comes to drastic changes to the game. This time, theorists are pointing towards videos from SypherPK and TaborHill.

Both creators recently uploaded videos expressing why they think Chapter 3 will be here soon. But even more interesting is that both videos ended with the creators saying “Catch you on the flipside.” This could be a coincidence, but fans think it’s proof that Chapter 3 is coming soon.

Cosmetic descriptions and hotfixes hint at Fortnite Chapter 3

A recent hotfix updated the Blackhole that appeared at the end of Chapter 1. This fix readded the code that loads players directly into the Blackhole. The Blackhole has been updated frequently over the last couple of seasons, but is it time for the updates to be put to use?

As well, there are a bunch of new cosmetics from Chapter 2 Season 8 that make it seem as if this really is the end. We won’t go into all of them, but the tweet below from HYPEX shows all of the Chapter 3 clues.

Various fans have also noted that Fortnite Chapter 2 has already exceeded the length of Chapter 1. Adding two more Seasons after Season 8 would make Chapter 2 incredibly long.

But what do you think? Is Season 8 really the end of Fortnite Chapter 2, or is Chapter 3 two more seasons away? Let us know your thoughts on Twitter via @FortINTEL.
