Mounted Turret coming soon to Fortnite

Published

on

The in-game message of the day has been updated to showcase a new Item coming to Fortnite Battle Royale – The Mounted Turret!

The Mounted Turret appears to be a new Legendary Item coming to the game. Interestingly enough, no mentions of the Mounted Turret were discovered in the latest patch, suggesting that an upcoming Patch could be very significant in terms of content.

Mounted Turret

Place the Mounted Turret and hop in to apply some suppressive fire! Careful not to overheat.

Based on this description we can assume that the Mounted Turret has unlimited ammo and only stops firing once it has overheated. Other mechanics such as damage, fire rate, targeting, accuracy, and so on are currently unknown.

It seems that the Mounted Turret is the first of its kind in the range-based damage traps as they typically require the player to walk over the squad in which the trap is placed.

Given this announcement we can expect the Mounted Turret to be coming in a new Patch this upcoming week, likely on November 13th or 15th as Epic Games typically releases updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

What your thoughts on this addition to the game? Recently many players have been pleading Epic Games to stop adding content and focus on fixing bugs and fine tuning the user’s in-game experience.

Could the Mounted Turret severely impact the overall meta of Fortnite, or will it be another useless Item?

Rumors

Have Epic been teasing Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 since last year?

Fortnite fans are looking back to potential Chapter 2 Season 3 teasers from 2019.

Today’s Fortnite Season 3 leak may have been a mistake, but fans are beginning to think that it was calculated. In fact, some are going so far as to claim that Epic have been planning Chapter 2 Season 3 for over a year, down to the delayed release date of the season.

By now, many of you have seen the leaked promotional image that the PlayStation store dropped early. You can take a look at that here, as well as the rumors of a potential Fortnite X SpongeBob crossover coming in the near future.

It’s funny that a single image could cause so much discussion, but it has. Some players have even looked back at Chapter 1 Season 9 for clues as to what’s to come in the next season.

Jonesy has become one of the only plot devices that have come with us through the two+ year journey of Fortnite. Naturally, he’s the primary character around which these theories revolve.

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A tweeted side-by-side images of the Season 9 Bunker Jonesy wall and the Chapter 2 Season 3 leaked image. The old image shows a sketch of the Battle Bus passing over an island with three trees, just like we see in the new promotional image.

Things get even spookier when you look at one of the midseason trailers that Fortnite released during Season 9. This video seemed to come out of nowhere, showing Jonesy on an island before he shoots down the Battle Bus with a flare gun.

The island on which Jonesy stands appears to be the same island from the leaked image and Bunker Jonesy sketch, suggesting that Epic had specific plans for Chapter 2 Season 3 over a year ago.

YouTuber, OrangeGuy took things a bit further. He drew a comparison to the Jonesy animation, as many have, but he noticed the numbers on the flare gun box. The series of numbers read 1106.

June 11 is the release date for Season 3. Most countries put the day before the month when writing the date. In other words, Season 3 releases on 11/06.

This might all be a giant coincidence, but it’s unlikely. The most likely scenario is the Epic had a loose plan of how Chapter 2 would unfold while they were still finishing Chapter 1. They released some Easter Eggs that they planned to eventually pay off a whole year later.

This could even explain the massive delay in Season 1, as they were being true to their prediction as to when Chapter 2 Season 3 would come out: 11/06.

Is Epic playing 3D chess with Fortnite? We’ll have to wait until June 11 to find out.

Streamer

Tfue addresses rumors that he quit Fortnite

Tfue addresses rumors that he quit Fortnite and returns with, what could be, a God-tier trio.

Tfue has unquestionably been the biggest Fortnite streamer on Twitch since Ninja left. He’s stuck with the game for years, and only recently started flirting with the idea of moving on.

Tfue floated a move to Warzone following the most recent FNCS Invitational. He seemed to get fed up with aim assist and needed a break from the game. He tweeted a cryptic message before switching his streams to Warzone for an extended period.

This led many fairweather Tfue fans to suggest that the longtime pro and streamer was officially quitting the game. He seems to be loving Warzone and has reunited with his old duo partner and friend, Cloakzy.

On May 20, Tfue took to Twitter to clarify that he wasn’t quitting Fortnite. “No I didn’t quit Fortnite,” he wrote on Twitter. “I just think the game is super unfair atm and wanted to take a break.”

In fact, it looks like Tfue has his sights set on a return to Fortnite for a Trios competition. He, Scoped, and new teammate, Innocents, showed-out during a recent bout of pro scrimmages. Scoped, as usual, showed that he’s one of the best Fortnite players in the world with a massive clutch at the end of a match.

Sometimes, we all need time away from a game in order to enjoy it more. It seems like Tfue is getting a much-needed break from Fortnite. Judging by his recent streams, he’s been considerably more positive towards the game when he does play.

It will likely take a new format and some additional time away for Tfue to come back to Fortnite full-time. He may never come back, and instead, focus on a variety of titles or competing in a different game. Only time will tell.

Rumors

Fans speculate a Fortnite x SpongeBob crossover in Season 3

Fortnite fans are speculating that a Fortnite X SpongeBob crossover is coming in Season 3.

It’s already been a wild day in the Fortnite leaks scene, with a leaked image coming from the PlayStation store that seems to confirm rumors of a map-wide flood in Fortnite Season 3. The image seems innocent enough, at first, until you look at the background. The Battle Bus is flying low, above the water, with a small island poking out in the background.

Console companies like Sony and Microsoft are notorious for jumping the gun, and Sony appears to have done so, yet again.

To be fair, this was likely caused by the short-notice delay of Season 3. Sony probably had their update ready to go for this week, only to miss the mark when Epic delayed the next season.

This wasn’t just confirmation of previously-leaked Season 3 info, though. Fans noticed a striking similarity between the island in the back of the promotional image and the introduction to the popular cartoon, SpongeBob SquarePants.

The introduction to the show begins with a shot of an island with three palm trees, just like we see in the leaked PlayStation Store image.

Naturally, this led to speculation within the Fortnite community that Season 3 would involve a SpongeBob crossover. Epic have proven that they love to incorporate pop-culture and memes into the game. A SpongeBob crossover would tick both boxes.

In fact, this could even relate to the rumored Aquaman skin in Season 3. What if it isn’t Aquaman at all? What if it’s Mermaid Man?

We only have to wait a week until we know whether or not this theory is legitimate. It seems strange to make such a direct SpongeBob reference without any inclusion in the Battle Pass.

Anything short of a Squidward skin would be disappointing, now. Let’s hope that we see a couple of our favorite SpongeBob characters in next season’s Battle Pass.
