There have been some memorable and iconic in-game events in Fortnite Battle Royale, and here are our picks for the top five best ones. 

Fortnite Battle Royale has brought a lot of new and unique things to the world of online gaming, one of which have been dynamic in-game events.

Starting as early as Season 3, Epic Games introduced these events as a way to mark the start of something new in the game’s map and lore, and they’ve progressively gotten more and more complex and intricate as the seasons have rolled by. 

5. Ice Storm Event

The Ice Storm event took place during Season 7, and saw the mysterious ice sphere that had been floating above Polar Peak finally burst open to reveal the formidable Ice King.

Thanks to the Ice King’s incredible power, the entire map was covered in snow for a period of time, adding an interesting visual dynamic to a lot of the well-known locations.

The reason this event isn’t ranked higher is because it did have some negatives, such as the snowy mist that frustratingly limited visibility and the Ice Legion zombie creatures that spawned all over the map. 

4. Volcano Eruption + Nexus ‘Unvaulting’ Event

The most recent of in-game events saw the massive volcano on the map erupt and destroy two iconic locations on the map – Tilted Towers and Retail Row – and that was only a half of it.

The other part of the event involved players getting the chance to vote for one of six vaulted weapons or items to be brought back into the game, and the Drum Gun was ultimately the weapon picked. 

3. “Butterfly” Event

Towards the end of Season 6, the iconic Kevin the Cube settled into Loot Lake and began to melt/leak its contents into the lake, turning the water purple.

After the Cube was finally empty, it began to spin and emit white light, eventually exploding and transporting players into a mysterious, never-before-seen place where everyone was floating and coming into contact with glass butterflies, hence the name.

Eventually, players were taken back to the map, and given their first ever glimpse of the brand new Leaky Lake location that replaced the old one. 

2. Rocket Launch

Arguably the most anticipated event in the game’s history, the Rocket Launch that took place in Season 4 will never be forgotten by the players who had the chance to witness it live.

After being hyped up and teased for several days, the massive Rocket found in the Villain’s Lair in Snobby Shores was finally activated by the Visitor and launched straight up into the sky, creating several giant cracks in the heavens.

The event also marked the beginning of a major period of change on the map, as not only did things begin to disappear from that moment on, but the crack in the sky ended up producing Kevin the Cube. 

This event does have a case for being ranked first, except for the fact that weapons and shooting were enabled during the launch, so players were able to ruin each others’ viewing experience, and one player even managed to set the world record for most eliminations during the spectacle

1. Marshmello Concert

It would be hard to argue against the Marshmello Concert being the top ranked in-game event so far, considering how massive of an achievement it was for Epic Games.

Added into the game as a character, the popular DJ hosted an incredible concert in Pleasant Park for players to enjoy, and it will certainly be a day to remember in the game’s illustrious history.

According to reports, 10.7 million concurrent players were present at the concert across the world, which is by-far the biggest day Fortnite BR has had to this day. 


How to find Fortnite Season 3’s Fortilla key and open the Vault

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

Fortnite’s Season 3 map, a flooded masterpiece with some intriguing additions.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!


As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
