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.

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
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
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
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 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.
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.
