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.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
