Fortnite X Real Life: The Vault appears in Durr Burger’s place

Epic is up to their old Season 5 tricks. Marks that appear to show the Fortnite Vault have shown up where the real-life Durr Burger was located.

UPDATE 3:40 PM: Apparently, the Vault outline has been there since the days of the Durr Burger. People are only beginning to largely notice it now since the Vault wasn’t part of the game back then. It appears as though this was the answer to the riddle rather than a whole new one. Still, an interesting find.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE 3:30 PM: Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is the longest season in Fortnite history and it shows. Fans are eagerly awaiting any news that could point to Season 2 – no matter how small the detail.

Let’s take a trip back down memory lane. Remember Fortnite Season 5? This might have been the most lore-rich season in all of Fortnite as the real world and the Fortnite world clashed. The season was aptly named, “Worlds Collide.”

Items from the real world appeared in Fortnite as Loot Llamas were found scattered around Europe. The Durr Burger disappeared from Fortnite, only to be found in the California desert before reappearing in another area of the Fortnite map.

We had a lot of unanswered questions with that season. It seemed like Epic was leading us on a wild goose chase for some lore, but the community never quite got there.

The Game Theorist put out an excellent video that covered everything going on at the time. The video ended with a cliffhanger. “We have three weeks and the clock is ticking.”

The puzzle was never solved. The next videos that MatPat made on Fortnite were “How the Fortnite Battle Bus Works” and “How Fortnite TRICKS Your Brain!” He never revisited this fascinating real-world theory.

Fast forward to today. We’re four months into Chapter 2 Season 1 and hungry for new content. Fortnite streamers are hosting fashion shows, trivia contests, and Simon says matches while they wait for something new to drop.

Reddit user ElectroTurtle17, likely motivated by a fit of boredom, decided to take a look at the old Durr Burger stomping grounds on Google Earth. The Durr Burger appears to be gone, but there was something new in its place.

In the location that was once home to the Durr Burger, there’s now has a strange, circular outline. It looks suspiciously like the Vault from the old Fortnite island.

Is Epic doing it again? Are we having another crossover with the real world?

The Visitor spoke of people outside of the loop in his recordings. Many of us theorized that he might be referring to us, the Fortnite players. Is the Vault’s appearance another sign that we are somehow connected to the Fortnite world?

It’s unclear how long these markings have been there. For all we know, they could predate the Black Hole. Unfortunately, all we can do is theorize and wait for more official information.

Epic delay Fortnite Season 3 & Device Event for the second time

The Device Event and Fortnite Season 3 have been delayed in the wake of nationwide protests in the US.

Epic Games have delayed Fortnite Season 3 and the Device Event for the second time. This decision comes following similar decisions from Sony and Activision, who delayed the PS5 reveal and Call of Duty season, respectively.

The team announced their decision in a blog post on June 3. The Device Event was moved from June 6 to June 15 and the new season was rescheduled for June 17.

“Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color,” they wrote in their blog post. “We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”

“The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities,” the post continued.

“The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.”

Fortnite fans are disappointed by the news, but it was not unexpected. As we said, other publishers and studios have made similar decisions in the wake of recent real-world events.

The exact timing of the Device Event is still up in the air, as it’s now set to take place on a Monday rather than a Saturday. We’ll keep you posted with more news about Fortnite Season 3 as it comes.

Concepts

This spray concept would be one of the most-used emotes if added

This Fortnite spray concept is as simple as it is brilliant.

Sprays are one of the most forgotten cosmetic items in all of Fortnite. At least Banners have their own skins and emoticons allow you to use them after death. Sprays, on the other hand, tend to sit in everyone’s locker, unused.

There are a couple of sprays that get some attention, but Reddit user u/JewishGuyOnReddit had an idea that could beat all of them – and some of the most popular emotes that are already in Fortnite.

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. Here’s what it is: “_____ was here.” That’s it. Imagine how awesome that would be. You could spraypaint your Gamertag or IGN all over the island.

This would be up there with some of the classic emotes as an instant purchase and a staple of the front wheel. You could even incorporate the dead body outline to show that you eliminated a player and tagged their spot.

Epic have incorporated a ton of fan-made cosmetic items, and we’d like to submit this one for their review. Let’s bring sprays back with this one!

Ninja goes off on ‘boring’ Fortnite Chapter 2: ready for a new Season

Ninja calls the recent Fortnite seasons “boring” but remains hopeful for Season 3.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is second only to Chapter 2 Season 1 as the longest season in Fortnite history. This season, like the previous one, has also offered little in the way of new content to players who hop on the Battle Bus every day.

During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins unleashed his fury upon the recent state of Fortnite. He echoed the complaints of many longtime Fortnite players. His perspective might be a bit amplified by the number of hours he’s put into the game in the past year, but it’s relatable to many in the community.

“I don’t want to play Fortnite right now,” Ninja told his chat. “It’s boring, there’s nothing new/ I’m having a little bit of fun, sometimes, but we’ve been playing the same map … the only new places that they’ve added are places with Henchmen that beam you, and laser you, and s**t on your walls.”

(0:33 for mobile viewers)

In a moment of self-reflection, Ninja admitted that he’s starting to “sound like Turner (Tfue).” He acknowledged that he’s having more fun with Fortnite than other times in the past, but misses the variety that old Fortnite seasons brought us.

“It blows my mind that we were forced to play the very first Season 1 for, like, 120 days,” Ninja continued before looking at the chart that showed the length of each season. “Double the length of seasons with half the content. Two seasons have almost taken up a year!”

Ninja is giving a voice to a large portion of the community who are eager for Season 3 to come out. Rumors are swirling about an additional delay to the next season due to the protests in the United States. Epic and Loserfruit just announced a delay to her Icon Series skin for that reason.

We have yet to hear any official news about a Season 3 delay, just yet. Of course, we’ll keep you covered if that changes.
