After months of speculation, Fortnite players have finally caught a glimpse of the monster that seemingly lived inside Polar Peak, after it was spotted swimming around the map carrying pieces of its former home.

Ever since its introduction in Season 7, Polar Peak has kept players guessing as to what mysteries lie beneath, with dozens of strange eggs being located in the iceberg. After nearly being destroyed during the Unvaulting event of Season 8, it seems the next event will finally shed some light on its history.


Leaked information suggests Polar Peak could be the location for the upcoming Cattus event, which some players believing that a crossover with Godzilla: King of the Monsters is in the works. 

EPIC GAMESA giant eye was spotted inside the iceberg at Polar Peak hinting towards a Godzilla crossover.

The latest discovery suggests the theories may be true, however, after eagle-eyed Reddit user u/createdbyeric was able to spot a giant creature swimming around the map, carrying pieces from Polar Peak which were destroyed in patch v9.20.


Visible for only a short amount of time, the monster can be seen with one of the small brick towers before submerging back underwater. 

When is the Fortnite Cattus event?

It is yet to be revealed when the leaked event will actually occur on the map, but more hints could be dropped during the next update – judging by recent patterns.

After the v9.10 version of the game went live, the creature’s eye was spotted at Polar Peak, before the majority of the castle was destroyed during the following update, suggesting the next major event could take place following the v9.30 patch, which is set to release on Thursday, June 20.


Epic Games continue to keep fans on the edge of their seats with yet another teaser, but be sure to keep your eyes peeled to track the monster’s movement around the map. 

You never know where it could appear next. 


Fortnite Flare Gun return leaked with major buff

A new Fortnite leak has claimed that the Flare Gun could be set to make a return in the near future, and it would be receiving quite a substantial buff too. 

As Fortnite seasons unfold, weapons and items are regularly cycled in and out of the loot pool – either for being too strong, too weak, or not fitting the theme of the new patch. 


This means that some fan-favorite weapons might disappear from the game for one reason or another, either to return at some point later in the future or to never be seen again. 

In the case of the Flare Gun, which was initially added to the battle royale back in the v13.20 update but it was removed at the start of Chapter 2, Season 4. With some fans hoping to see it return, especially given the new fire mechanics, it appears as if Epic have got something up their sleeve.

The Flare Gun first appeared in a small short video from Epic Games.

Following the v14.30 update, which gave a buff to the Combat Shotgun and also brought the Rally Royale limited-time mode to the party, leakers uncovered a handful of changes coming in the future.

This includes the Flare Gun, which as leaker Mang0e_ pointed out, could be set to return to the battle royale after a spell in the vault, but with a little bit of a boost too. 

“The flare gun may be coming back to core modes soon,” the leaker tweeted on October 15. “The duration for marking enemies was re-added and increased to 15 seconds.”


While this is not set in the stone, as the leaker tweeted that it may return, some fans will be hoping that the Flare Gun does return – especially given its reported buff.

This increase in time with marking enemies would certainly make players think twice about ignoring the chance to use the Flare Gun. But, as ever, it’ll be up to Epic to make the final call.
