Wild Fortnite Season 2 theory: Fortnite X MF DOOM

Could Fortnite be collaborating with the rap game’s biggest villain, MF DOOM, in Season 2?

Could Fortnite be collaborating with the rap game’s biggest villain, MF DOOM, in Season 2?

This is, admittedly, a far-out theory for Fortnite Season 2, but there is a bit of evidence and history to back it up. Any theory is worth exploring as we wait for Season 2 to kick off on February 20 – especially if you happen to be a Fortnite player and MF Doom fan.

As a massive MF Doom fan, myself, he was the first thing to pop into my head when I saw one of the recent Fortnite Season 2 teasers. We see a large, bald man – one whose face was previously blurred – with a Chaos Agent mask over his face.

We also see the word “henchmen” scattered about in different languages, along with a map that appears to show the headquarters of the character.

Epic Games

There are two ways to look at this teaser with the “henchmen” tag. Either, the person in the image is one of the henchmen or the Chaos Agent and others are henchmen for the real master. For our purposes, let’s assume that he’s a villain and that the truth is the former statement.

The second clue from this teaser is the trail of M’s on the righthand side of the image. This is, of course, the first letter in MF Doom’s name. It also happens to be the beginning of his most popular album, ‘Mm.. Food.’

The most recent teaser – at the time of writing – also hints at a hero/villain theme. Doom is a notorious villain, of course.

For those unaware of the genius that is Daniel Dumile, the man behind the mask, he’s often described as, “your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.”

Unlike a lot of MCs, Doom the rapper and Dumile the man are not the same person. Doom is only the most popular character in Dumile’s universe, which also features characters like Viktor Vaughn and King Geedorah. Dumile is the writer and his personas are his characters.

Doom borrows heavily from film, TV, novels, and comic books. His most popular characters are styled after Dr. Doom from the Marvel Universe (real name: Victor Von Doom) and King Ghidorah from Godzilla. His songs are littered with samples of old superhero cartoons. In other words, he’s a perfect candidate to want to collaborate with a video game studio.

Now that we’ve finished our brief history lesson on MF Doom, let’s talk about why this collaboration might be possible. First of all, Epic began adding “real” songs to Fortnite in Chapter 2.

All Fortnite players noticed the inclusion of Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up,’ but people seem to forget that the first “real” song added to Fortnite was ‘Ruckus’ by Konata Small – the Chapter 2 intro song that’s also available as an emote.

So, we have a precedent for Epic adding “real” music to Fortnite. What does that have to do with Doom?

Well, as it would happen, MF Doom made an entirely-clean album for Adult Swim in 2005. He worked with producer Danger Mouse to release ‘The Mouse and the Mask’ under the ‘Danger Doom’ alias. He even recorded several promotions for the station and hosted a Christmas Eve special in 2006.

Doom hasn’t released any new music since his last collaboration with Czarface in 2018. He’s been sporadically active since the beginning of his career, with no signs of hanging it up anytime soon. Could his next album be dedicated to one of the biggest video games in history?

I admit that this theory is a stretch. Doom has been the king of underground rap for two decades. His collaboration with Adult Swim made sense – both he and the channel are counter-culture icons. Fortnite might be too mainstream for him. What’s more, most Fortnite players probably have no idea who he is.

Is Doom a gamer? I have no idea. He’s a self-described “nerd,” and makes references to old-school games in his lyrics, but it’s unclear if he keeps up with the current trends. There’s an Epic account named ‘MF DOOM’ with Fortnite statistics, but that could be anyone. Apart from that, there’s no connection.

I think it would be amazing for Epic to add the Vaudville Villain to Fortnite as the puppetmaster – pulling the strings of all of our favorite characters.

Is it likely? Absolutely not. It’s just a fun theory to explore while we wait for Season 2.

The 5 most hated skins in Fortnite

The Fortnite community is no fan of these skins.

Published

on

Fortnite skins have taken on a life of their own since the game came out. Back in the early days, we couldn’t imagine spending money on a free game. Now, hundreds of dollars later, we’re still padding our lockers as collectors of in-game cosmetics.

Some skins tell a lot about the player wearing them. A Peely? They’re just trying to goof around and have some fun. A Dynamo? Sweat is probably pouring onto their keyboard at all times.

Today, we’re taking a look at the most hated skins in Fortnite – the skins that elicit an immediate reaction from opponents. You better be ready for some backlash if you post a clip while wearing one of these skins.

5. Female Soccer Skins

Female Soccer Skins have been hated ever since they first came out. This might have been the first “sweaty” skin to come to Fortnite, and it remains in the category to this day. However, it’s been made available in the Item Shop quite frequently so everyone from sweats to casuals owns it.

“Soccer skin” means more than just the skin that someone is wearing, at this point. It’s a term that longtime Fortnite players will likely remember for the rest of their gaming careers. However, because of its frequent item shop appearances, it’s last on the list.

4. Custom Superhero Skins

These skins have cause quite a stir with players and have disrupted the competitive scene on more than one occasion. The actual name of these skins is Boundless, and they are among the most customizable skins in the game. Many players bought them for their versatility at first, but they were quickly abused by competitive players.

Players could set their skins to have an all-black or all-white color scheme which would make them harder to see. These color combos were banned from the game, but players still found a way to make their skins harder to see. This lead to these sweaty skins being banned outright in all competitive play.

3. Anime Skins

This category of skins is pretty new since “anime” skins were introduced in Chapter 2 Season 5. A bundle of anime skins was also released during Season 6 which contains some of the sweatiest and most hated Fortnite Skins.

Chigusa, Megumi, and Yuki are part of the Cyber Infiltration bundle, and Lexa was given to players who reached a certain level of the Season 5 Battle Pass. For some reason, players hate these cell-shaded skins and would rather face off against Soccer Skins.

2. Surf Witch

When we asked Twitter which skins they hated the most, a large number of responses included Surf Witch. It seems this skin is hated because it’s used by “sweats” and also because of its lackluster design.

Surf Witch’s design isn’t much different from many of the other female skins. In fact, she has a very similar design to Haze, a preexisting skin. Many players think that Surf Witch is a cheap rip off of Haze, and their hate is derived from their similarities.

1. Dynamo

Dynamo is – by far – the most hated skin in Fortnite, at the moment. If you post a clip while wearing the Dynamo skin, you’re guaranteed to see the bulk of your replies consist of something along the lines of, “Dynamo, ew.”

We’re not exactly sure why Dynamo has its status as the most hated skin in Fortnite. Perhaps, it’s because Dynamo a very sweaty skin that isn’t difficult to get. Unlike Crystal and Aura, a lot of players think Dynamo is, simply, a bad skin on top of the fact that it’s incredibly sweaty.

Whatever the reason, wearing a Dynamo skin puts a target on your back. If you hit the island wearing Dynamo, then you better be as good as the skin suggests you are.

Epic Games

Does this list mean that you shouldn’t be wearing these skins in Fortnite? Absolutely not. In fact, a lot of players like playing the role of an antagonist in all sorts of games. It can be fun. Wear whatever you want – these are just some of the skins that are in the community’s crosshairs at the moment. We’re sure that it will change in the future. Wear what you want and have fun!
