Excavation work has continued at Dusty Divot, with Fortnite fans discovering a large anchor buried in the dirt at the location, likely tying in to Fortnite’s overarching Season 8 story.

Epic Games regularly update and refresh the Fortnite map throughout the season, adding new locations and remodelling areas around the island.

Epic Games do this as a way of keeping the game fresh, in the hope that Fortnite players won’t grow bored of the areas in which they battle if they are constantly evolving.

What’s going on at Fortnite’s Dusty Divot?

Throughout Season 8, excavation sites have appeared across the map, including one inside Dusty Divot, which can be found near the center of the island. A number of trucks and diggers can be seen parked around a large dig site, which had previously acted as part of the lab that appeared there following the meteor crash.

These sites have appeared in a number of locations, with Fortnite players able to use their harvesting tools to help break down the dirt that sits on top to reveal what’s hidden. The dig sites had already been leaked, but what was underneath remained unknown.

What has been found at Dusty Divot?

Fortnite players who head to Dusty Divot will be able to peer into the massive hole that’s been burrowed into the landscape at Dusty Divot, but might be surprised by what they see.

While Lazy Lagoon in the north of the map is widely regarded as the Pirate outpost in Fortnite, a large anchor has been uncovered by the machinery, much to the confusion of fans.

What does the anchor at Dusty Divot mean?

It’s currently unclear what the anchor found at Dusty Divot means, but it’s almost certainly part of the overarching theme for Season 8, which includes Pirates as a part.

The discovery seems to indicate that while Fortnite fans may have only become aware of pirates in the world of Fortnite at the start of Season 8, they may have been on the map for a long time – perhaps even before we were.

Only time will tell what these sites and the items found there have to do with the rest of Season 8, but it’s unlikely that Fortnite fans will have to wait too long to find out.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

The new jetpack operates exactly the same as the old item that was removed from Fortnite a while ago.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

The Iron Man jetpack can be found through the map as floor loot.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
