Fortnite


 

It’s only been a day since Fortnite launched its fourth season of content, but players are already uncovering some of Battle Royale’s latest mysteries.

Following the crash-landing of a comet that turned Dusty Depot into Dusty Divot and introduced some new gravity-defining power-ups, Fortnite‘s map experienced a few more changes than players originally expected. These changes are mostly showing up in the form of secret underground bunkers.

GameSpot has collected some of these findings, which Fortnite‘s more exploratory players have posted to the game’s subreddit.

The first new area is southeast of Lonely Lodge. A hidden bunker that looks like a locker room can be found by demolishing the floor next to the staircase in a nearby building or by building a ramp down the side of a nearby cliff. The area you’re looking for is tucked away in the cliffside and is marked inside by a strange, superhero-looking logo.

Another new, unnamed area can be found near Snobby Shores, where you’ll find a rocket silo housing an actual rocket. It doesn’t seem like you can interact with the rocket in any meaningful way, but it does look like this might be the base for a supervillain. After all, what good guy has ever had a rocket silo?

The third unnamed area gives us some Bruce Wayne vibes. Hidden beneath the gray-blue house in Salty Springs, players can find a Batcave-style command center by poking around the house’s staircase.

It’s clear that developer Epic Games wants players to find these new areas since loot and even chests are programmed to spawn there. However, why Epic wants players to explore these new areas is anybody’s guess. It’s possible that they could simply make for some interesting locations for final circle showdowns, but it’s also possible that more Fortnite lore is yet to be revealed. I mean, anything’s possible.

Fortnite is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile devices.

What do Fortnite Battle Royale’s new secret areas mean?

If you thought that Fortnite's world-building hints and teases would stop with the comet's impact, you were mistaken.
