Fortnite is debuting a new item with content update v10.10 called the Junk Rift which leaks suggest will dump objects out of it and now we have an idea of just what items will come out.

A new item called the Junk Rift has arrived in the in-game news screen, which means it won’t be long until it actually comes to the game, and fans are already wondering what it does.

According to leaker Lucas7yoshi, the item will drop objects out of it and could potentially be used to damage other players.

@Lucas7YoshiThe Junk Rift is coming to Fortnite in v10.10 content update.

Fortnite leaker FireMonkey revealed four different items that could fall from the rift, but it’s not clear if that is all that can fall or if there are more.

These items include a giant dinosaur, a police car, an anchor, and an outhouse. These items have no relation to each other meaning it seems like it chooses random items.

What will be interesting to keep an eye on – if these items do in fact damage others – is what the differences in damage between items will be.

Surely a giant dinosaur or cop car will do more damage to another player than an outhouse would. Both would hurt of course but the car and anchor being made of metal could mean something more.

Epic GamesMechs have taken over Fortnite but the show must go on.

When is the Junk Rift coming?

The release time for this update is 8am EST (1pm BST, 5am PT, 10pm AET) on August 20 and there is no downtime, meaning you’ll be able to jump right in and use the item when it arrives.

That’s not the only thing that will be arriving with this update as we expect a couple of map changes to be in the mix.

Whatever questions we have about the Junk Rift will be answered with the new patch.


Relive the Fortnite Galactus live event: full replay, HD images, recap

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
