It looks like a number of mysterious control rooms have been added to the Fortnite Battle Royale map as part of the V4.0 update, with some players speculating that they will be used for a future challenge.

The V4.0 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale dropped on May 1st and introduced a number of changes, including the all-new location in place of Dusty Depot which was destroyed by a meteor.


As is often the case, a number of unannounced changes have also been included in the update and the Fortnite community has been quick to discover them.

Included in these discoveries have been multiple new control rooms, or bunkers, in various locations across the map which have have absolutely no explanation behind them.


Reddit user __Kaneda__ was one of the first people to share a video of a command room, located under the blue house in Salty Springs on this occasion.

Another Reddit user, TopiKoodaa, found one on the far East of the map, South of Lonely Lodge, in yet another basement opening up onto the edge of a cliff.

Some members of the community have suggested that this is yet more evidence of an upcoming superhero theme with the bunkers representing the hidden lairs of various heroes of villains.


Others believe that they might simply be used for a challenge where players have to visit a certain number of the bunkers during one match or over the course of the season.

We will keep you updated when more information about the strange new rooms is available.


Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.


Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form. 


This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
