Another mysterious portal has been discovered following Fortnite Battle Royale’s rocket launch event on July 1st, this time at the Motel near Anarchy Acres.

Speculation about the imminent launch of the Fortnite’s rocket, which was situated in the villain’s base, eventually proved true on June 30th when it finally shot into the night sky.


The launch event created almost as many questions as it answered, though, as it seemed to be teleporting from place to place, created portals, and even left a gigantic crack in the sky.

One of the first portals to be discovered was just outside of Lonely Lodge and it quickly expanded to destroy the “Lonely Lodge” sign entirely.


But it looks like Lonely Lodge is only the start of the destruction as another small portal has now been discovered at the Motel to the West of Anarchy Acres.

Much like the Lonely Lodge portal, this strange breach has started small but is already beginning to grow next to the “Motel” sign and is likely to start looking more like the crack in the sky very soon.

One of the most popular theories about the portals is that they represent a crack in space and time and that they will eventually devour the current map and change it entirely.


Fans of this theory believe that this will mean that Season 5, which is due to start on July 12th, will take place some time in the distant past or future.

With the recent confirmation of Fortnite’s all-new “Drum Gun”, which seems to be based off of the prohibition era Thompson submachine gun, some form of time travel does seem to be a possibility.

Epic Games have revealed some of the bug fixes that they’ve got lined up for the next Fortnite update, and a few annoying issues look set to be resolved. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its endpoint, some fans are already looking ahead to what the cinematic end of season event might have in store, as well as what Chapter 2, Season 5 could be about in terms of the theme.


Despite all the speculation, Epic Games are just cracking on with keeping the current season feeling fresh – releasing new challenges, new cosmetics, as well as some other superpowers for players to use.

On top of that, they’ve also been rooting out problems with their regular updates. With the v14.30 patch on the horizon, the devs have also got a few fixes coming to all of their modes. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

A handful of problems have been labeled as ‘Fixed in next Game Update’ on their public Trello board as of October 10, with a few annoying battle royale issues being addressed.

These include the issue with movement stopping when placing a marker, inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble, and licensed audio playing on the Last Forever emote.

In addition to those, mobile players who had been frustrated by the XP bar not showing the correct level will have their issues fixed as well. 


Fortnite v14.30 bug fixes

  • Placing a map marker cancels movement 
  • Inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble 
  • Audio of Last Forever emote playing even with licensed audio muted 
  • XP bar can be visually incorrect while in a match/incorrect leveling up on mobile. 

As for Save the World, there are two issues labeled as fixed in Future Game Update, including the wrong animation for the Sword of the Daywalker and Xbox homeshare players being unable to access STW.

However, as leaker iFireMonkey points out, these are not guaranteed to ship with the v14.30 update and could be coming later down the line. We’ll just have to wait and see.
