The Bifrost appears in-game ahead of Fortnite Season 4 release

The Final Fortnite Season 4 teasers are live on social media and in-game.

Fortnite Season 4 is, officially, less than 24 hours away. Despite what everyone predicted, Season 3 will be the first season in Chapter 2 to end without an extension.

The online and in-game teasers are heating up. Today, August 26, Epic revealed the thematic word for the season, Nexus, along with some new comic pages that confirm a few previously-leaked skins for the new season. As it turns out, the leaks from Hypex and Tabor Hill only gave us a couple of days head-start on what Epic would eventually release ahead of Season 4.

Wolverine, Iron Man, Groot, Storm, Dr. Doom, and more Marvel characters will all be a part of Season 4 – either through the Battle Pass or Item Shop. There are even rumors about a double Battle Pass for Season 4. The news seems promising and realistic, but we’re not getting our hopes up, just yet.

Of course, the teasers aren’t isolated to social media. Epic released an in-game teaser in the form of Bifrost markings outside of Weeping Woods. Like Thor’s Hammer, we expect to see these lifted when Season 4 goes live early in the morning of the 27th.

As for the rest of what Season 4 will hold, your guess is as good as ours. We’ll have to wait and see what happens tomorrow when the new season goes live. We’ll be up all night reporting on the new season, so make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL to be the first to know everything about Fortnite Season 4.

Season 4 drop spot drama: Zayt & Bizzle clash at Doom’s Domain

The Season 4 drop spot drama is taking place at Doom’s Domain between Zayt, Saf, and Stretch & Bizzle, Dubs, and Megga.

There seems to be some high-profile drop spot drama every season of competitive Fortnite. Most of the time, Tfue is part of one of the teams who refuses to move from a certain location. He and Scoped battled with Chap and Av during Season 2 and took on Zayt & company during the early days of Season 3.

Unfortunately, Tfue has moved on from competitive Fortnite and passed his mantle to a younger group of players. This season, the battle of the drop spot is unfolding at Doom’s Domain – one of the better landing spots of Season 4. Not only does this location net you Vault Loot and mythic weapons, but it’s also the only place on the map where you can get an LMG.

The teams of Zayt, Saf, and Stretch have been battling it out for supremacy of Doom’s Domain against Bizzle, Megga, and Dubs. Naturally, this has led to some friction between the two teams. Zayt has always been one of the most outspoken pros in the scene, and his clash with Bizzle is no exception.

Over the weekend, Zayt released a thread of tweets directed at Bizzle and his trio, calling them out for contesting him. He sounded off on his former teammate, even going so far as to say that their friendship is ruined.

According to Zayt’s tweets, he even reached out to Dubs about the trio leaving and moving to their old spot in Misty Meadows. “His only argument is Bizzle and Megga don’t want to leave because they have egos,” he wrote.

Bizzle, for his part, hasn’t been too keen on responding to the situation. His only contribution has been some laughing emojis and, “I just don’t want to respond to all this, it’s so childish.” Megga, one of the players in the contesting trio. Tweeted a photo of himself in the Doom’s Domain vault with the loot, suggested that he and his team took out Zayt & company.

This type of feud happens every competitive Fortnite season as some of the top players decide to contest one another for powerful loot. Catty Corner and The Grotto got the same treatment in the last two seasons.

We understand why this drama could frustrate the players involved, but it’s always entertaining to watch. There’s a built-in storyline at the beginning of each match as long as these two teams continue to contest one another. Keep an eye on these two trios as the season progresses. Here’s to hoping that neither one of these teams back down.

Ninja discusses his break & return to Fortnite

Ninja is back to enjoying Fortnite. Could he be the first domino of returning popular streamers to fall?

Published

There was a time when Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Fortnite were synonymous with one another. Ninja had a solid following before the game’s release, but being an early adapter of Fortnite allowed him to catapult himself to stardom – becoming, arguably, the most popular streamer of all time.

This all occurred in – what many consider to be – Fortnite’s heyday. The game is still extremely popular, but the biggest streamers began to fall off, one by one. Now, there are only a few original names left on the Fortnite Twitch directory, and Ninja hasn’t been one of them.

Although Ninja still dipped his toe into the Fortnite waters from time to time, he wasn’t regularly playing or streaming the game. For the bulk of Chapter 2, Ninja’s only attachment to Fortnite was the sporadic Ninja Battles tournament series. It became clear that he didn’t enjoy the game anymore and wanted to play things like Valorant, Fall Guys, and Among Us.

This changed a bit when Chapter 2 Season 4 came out. Ninja seemed interested in the new season from the start – contacting SypherPK for a co-stream the morning that Season 4 came out. Sypher missed the message, but soon capitalized on Ninja’s newfound interest in Fortnite.

A couple of weeks later, Sypher reached out to Ninja and the two streamed Fortnite for the first time in months. It was clear from the start that Ninja was having a blast with the new season. He and Sypher were messing around with the new hero abilities and fan-favorite returning items like Shockwave Grenades.

Fast-forward a week and Ninja is actually streaming Solos again – something that few fans expected to see. Solos are widely considered to be the most difficult Fortnite mode to stream, but Ninja was making impressive plays, talking trash, and dancing on fallen stream snipers. It felt like old times.

“Honestly, the game was not fun to me,” Ninja explained when discussing his extended break from Fortnite. “It felt super stale, super boring – I honestly don’t really have anything good to say about the last two seasons.”

Ninja decided to take a chance when SypherPK asked him to play during Season 4. “I’m having a blast, man. It feels good again. It feels fun,” Ninja told his chat. “I’m playing Fortnite Solos. When was the last time you saw me playing Fortnite Solos?”

In a lot of ways, Ninja is the pulse of the Fortnite community. Season 4 has felt like a return to form for Fortnite. We’re back to an evolving season with unique weapons and items that finally offer a variety of playstyles. The Boogie Bombs and Shockwaves might seem like small additions, but they bring the lightheartedness that Fortnite has been missing for the past few seasons.

Hopefully, Epic stay the course for the upcoming Fortnite seasons and add some awe-inspiring events to cap them off. Fortnite is due for a resurgence in popularity, and we could be on the brink of that. Ninja was just the first domino to fall.
