Fortnite’s upcoming Doomsday event is the talk of the town right now, and more clues are popping up. Now, players have uncovered a first look at how the Doomsday Device may look in-game ⁠— if everything comes to fruition.

As the Chapter 2 storyline runs its course in Fortnite, things are starting to get heated up. Could the island as players know it be nearing its end? Well, it looks like it, if these Fortnite leaks surrounding the Doomsday Device are to be believed.

The new Doomsday Device, found by Reddit user ‘Jonathan287’, was uncovered in the Doom Room in the main menu of Fortnite. While there have been a few smaller Easter eggs uncovered in the new rooms, this could be the biggest one yet.

The device looks like a glass sphere, with antennas attached to the bottom. What the device could be attached to, or what’s possibly inside, remains a mystery.

It’s also not currently on the island players launch onto every game. For now, it has its home firmly in the main menu, although there are suspicions that it could be making its way into the Agency soon.

The Fortnite Doomsday Device was first leaked on March 31 as a major map update was shipped around the Agency. Hatches were popping up around the high-tech facility, although players weren’t able to open them.

Keycards have since been discovered that lead to these hatches to open them, however they are currently disabled. Such a Doomsday Device might be stored in these hatches, and given its name, it could wreak havoc on the island.

The device leaked back then is distinctly different to the one uncovered in Midas’ room. For one, the new one is clear, while the old device had outside patterns. There’s also no wiring anywhere. However, the shape and design are the same.

The rumors around what could happen surrounding Doomsday have been swirling for weeks now. It could be Fortnite’s next live event, as the Chapter 2 plot wears on, or it could be something players can access in every game.

However, like past events, no one really knows what’s going to happen until ⁠it actually happens. So, for now, sit tight, and hope the end of the world is nigh.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
