Is there going to be a Fortnite x IT Chapter Two event?

Published

on

There were numerous hints and even a few leaks that lead fans to believe there would be a crossover event between Fortnite and IT Chapter 2.

Fortnite Battle Royale has had several crossover events with different projects ranging from movies, shows, and video games.

The most recent crossover event had the world of Borderlands briefly appear in Fortnite Battle Royale with the Pandora Rift Zone, Welcome to Pandora missions, and Psycho Bundle.

Hints began to appear on August 27 as leakers began to post audio files of the infamous laugh that belongs to Pennywise the Clown from IT. A few days later players noticed that there was a red balloon coming out of the gutter in Pleasant Park.

Here’s a timeline of all clues pointing towards a Fortnite x IT Chapter Two crossover.

Potential IT Chapter Two leaks

HypeX, an infamous Fortnite Leaker, posted an audio clip on August 27. Soon after another leaker, FortTory, posted an in-game file picture showing that “a creepy balloon [was] added into the files.”

Epic Games have added objects into Fortnite’s in-game files before, and sometimes they are placeholders or old code, so these leaks were not solid evidence.

Balloons and laughter

Six days later on September 4, the balloon finally appeared in Pleasant Park.

There was one red balloon that was tied to the gutter outside of the destroyed home next to the soccer field. Once players popped the balloon, they could hear the same laughter from the leaked audio clip.

Retweet from official IT Chapter Two Twitter

Epic Games has yet to make any type of announcement that a new crossover would be arriving, but the official IT Chapter Two Twitter dropped a subtle hint.

The same day the red balloon appeared in Fortnite, their Twitter account retweeted one of our articles covering the potential crossover.

Of course, their retweet isn’t an official confirmation, but it was a sign that the crossover could potentially happen.

Balloon disappears

On September 9, the red balloon was removed from Fortnite Battle Royale. The house behind the balloon still remains the same.

With IT Chapter Two releasing on September 6, we think that the red balloon’s brief appearance was the only thing we will see from a potential crossover.

Previous crossover events in Fortnite usually take place before the project’s release, so we believe the time had come and gone for a Fortnite x IT event.

Do you have any ideas on what Fortnite’s next crossover event will be?

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.

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!
