The first official in-game teaser confirmed the imminent arrival of a Batman crossover event in Fortnite.

Fortnite has yet another major crossover event coming to their game just before the close of Season X. 

Arguably DC Comics’ biggest name, Batman, is coming to the world of Fortnite and he’s bringing his gear and the whole city of Gotham with him as Tilted Town is set to transform. 

This will now be the second superhero crossover to come to Fortnite, joining Marvel’s The Avengers.

If you head to Tilted Town you’ll notice the Rift Beacon is once again active, signifying another change is coming to the already transformed location.

Even if you didn’t already know about the numerous leaks surrounding the event, there’s one major hint that has already arrived and it’s the Batarang that’s stuck in the hay bale right next to the beacon.

The crossover comes around the same time Batman Day occurs, which is on September 21. It’s the 80th anniversary of the Dark Knight so Fortnite is helping us celebrate the occasion.

Epic Games made the three Rocksteady developed Batman Arkham games along with three Lego Batman games all available for free on their storefront, so make sure you pick those up too.

There’s no set starting date for the Batman event to begin but we can definitely expect it at least in time for the new update.

Rift Beacons usually signify a change in location is near. Tilted Town will now undergo two major transformations in the same season, something that can’t be said for the other locations on the map.

Along with the new location, a few new weapons are arriving and perhaps even a Batman skin. It’ll remain to be seen if that really happens.

Look for event more hints to show up in the coming days as the event draws closer.


TimTheTatman rage quits after finding three fishing rods in Fortnite

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
