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.

Subway Surfers officially reacts to crazy Fortnite collab concept

A handful of notable franchises are yet to collaborate with Fortnite including Subway Surfers. Here’s why this could finally happen.

Fortnite x Subway Surfers

Fortnite players love coming up with concepts, especially related to crossovers. A Subway Surfers concept went viral recently and it was good enough to catch the attention of the developers.

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Subway Surfers is one of the most ground-breaking games in history. It popularized the endless runner genre and has been played by literally billions of players.

Crossovers now define Fortnite, and here’s why a collaboration with Subway Surfers could be closer than ever.

Subway Surfers’ concept imagines Tricky as a Fortnite skin

Subway Surfers has introduced a wide range of characters since its launch, and fans love them all for unique reasons. As it turns out, Fortnite artist Anhel admires Tricky and accordingly, he turned her into a skin.

Anhel’s Fortnite x Subway Surfers bundle included these items:

  • Tricky’s outfit
  • Subway Surfers spray
  • 1500 V-Bucks
  • Subway Surfers’ Jetpack back bling
  • Subway Surfers’ theme song album

To be fair, this is a flawless bundle for any Subway Surfers fan. The mobile game has many elements that can be incorporated into Fortnite, and an official crossover is almost guaranteed to be a massive hit.

Subway Surfers’ official Twitter account reacted to the aforementioned concept and even tagged Fortnite asking about a collaboration. Naturally, this was enough to ignite the hopes of countless fans who love both franchises.

Subway Surfers’ policeman catches Jake with Fortnite’s builds in fan-made clip

It is evident that the Fortnite community is eagerly awaiting a Subway Surfers’ collab. Popular modder Brux uploaded a clip on YouTube that perfectly blended both the games and it already has over 250k views.

Brux somehow gave the policeman building and editing abilities who then used them to catch Jake within 10 seconds. To say the least, it was the perfect representation of a Fortnite sweat.

Brux is clearly one of the most talented modders out there. It is safe to assume that such content will become more common with Creative 2.0 which should be available before 2023.

Now that Subway Surfers has officially reacted to concepts, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the collaboration with Fortnite takes place soon. As of now, the Fall Guys collaboration has been leaked and loopers can look forward to completing Crown Clash challenges for free rewards.

Fortnite leak reveals Temple Bloom POI coming in v21.20 update

The Reality Tree in Fortnite has affected Logjam Lotus and Butter Bloom, and it seems like its next target is the Temple Bloom landmark.

Temple Bloom POI in Fortnite

The Fortnite island is literally blooming, all thanks to the Reality Tree. Leakers have revealed that a new Temple Bloom POI will arrive in the next update with a theme similar to Logjam Lotus and Butter Bloom.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 hasn’t been the best in terms of server performance and XP, but the same cannot be said for map changes. A new biome was introduced at the season’s launch, and ever since, two locations have already changed significantly.

Here’s what we know about the upcoming Temple Bloom/The Tower POI in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite players spot new Reality Root in Temple Bloom landmark

Soon after Butter Barn turned into Butter Bloom, loopers discovered a new Reality Root and a small pink tree in Temple Bloom. The landmark is located west of The Joneses and interestingly, the latest quests accidentally mark it as a named location.

From the looks of it, the Temple Bloom landmark is all set to become a major location. Prominent leaker HYPEX has also talked about a file codenamed The Tower. They first assumed that The Tower will be the new named location, but it is possible that it is just one of the themes that Temple Bloom will cater to.

What to expect from Temple Bloom POI in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3?

It is worth noting that the latest POIs in Fortnite have alternating themes such as Roman, Atlantis, and Neo. Classic POIs like Colossal Coliseum, Coral Castle, and Neo Tilted, are the inspiration behind these themes, respectively.

Hence, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Temple Bloom also has multiple themes. As of now, there’s no information on these themes apart from the fact that there will be a tower.

It is safe to assume that the Temple Bloom POI will become official in the v21.20 update that is expected to release on July 5, 2022.

The community, as usual, has already assumed what Temple Bloom will look like. While Fortnite veterans wish to witness the return of the OG Ranger Tower which used to be in Lonely Lodge, others are confident that the upcoming location will be tailor-made for Indiana Jones.

Indiana Jones is the secret skin in Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. The quests to unlock his cosmetics will be unlocked on July 7, 2022, and it makes sense for him to be a boss in Temple Bloom.

All in all, it is evident that Epic Games is focusing on map changes in Chapter 3 Season 3. The latest hotfix update also added the Firework Flare Gun to the loot poot, and loopers certainly have a ton of new content to explore.

Fortnite adds Firework Flare Gun in latest Hotfix update

A brand new version of the Flare Gun is here in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Here’s how it is the perfect fit for the Vibin’ theme.

Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite

Fortnite has added the coolest version of the classic Flare Gun in the June 28 hotfix update for Chapter 3 Season 3. From its stats to viability, here’s everything to know about the new weapon.

Back when Firefly Jars and Repair Torches weren’t a thing, Fortnite players used Flare Guns to cause chaos. The multi-purpose pistol is a fan favorite, and it has finally returned in a new Firework form.

How to use the Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Just like the OG Flare Gun, the Firework Flare Gun should be available in chests, rare chests, Loot Llamas, Supply Drops, and even floor loot.

It will serve two major purposes:

  • Scan nearby opponents with the help of fireworks.
  • Cause a fire when the bullet comes in contact with structure/surfaces. The fire spreads within a fixed AoE (area of impact) that deals continued damage to opponents.

The Flare Gun has the following stats:

  • DPS– 34
  • Damage– 60
  • Reload Time– 1.6 seconds
  • Mag size– 6

However, as the name suggests, the Firework Flare Gun has a special Firework ability. When loopers shoot towards the sky, the bullet eventually turns into a beautiful firework. Interestingly, this effect also happens when the bullet touches the ground or any other surface.

We already have gameplay footage of the Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3:

It is evident that the Firework Flare Gun is a lot goofier than its standard version. This is primarily because of this season’s theme, Vibin’.

Fortnite community looks forward to more summer content in Chapter 3 Season 3

The Firework Flare Gun won’t be a part of the loot pool permanently. According to leakers, it has been unvaulted for the No Sweat Summer event. This also explains the tropical color theme.

While loopers are excited to see fireworks on the island, they definitely expect more from the No Sweat Summer event. Until now, we’ve only received some Creative XP challenges and three free cosmetics (back bling and sprays).

Epic Games is yet to add summer-themed elements to the map like Surfboards and NPCs, among other things. The developer can certainly change this narrative with the next major update that should arrive next week.
