Fortnite: Major hint from Creative Director points to mystery of Dragon Eggs being revealed soon

The Fortnite Battle Royale community has picked up on a major hint that the mystery around the Dragon Eggs may soon be revealed.

The mysterious Dragon Eggs are currently being housed in a dungeon area located below the Ice Castle on Polar Peak, and many players believe that some event may soon take place down there.

There are several reasons why players are theorizing this, the main one of which is the fact that Donald Mustard, Creative Director of Fortnite at Epic Games, has set is location on Twitter to ‘The Dungeon.’

Now this may not seem like something concrete to go by, except for the fact that Mustard has previously used the Twitter location tool to foreshadow things in Fortnite.

In early November, he had his location set to ‘The In-Between,’ which ended up being a reference to the Cube/Butterfly event that took place in-game. Prior to the release of Season 7, his location was set to ‘The Iceberg,’ a clear teaser of what was to come. 

Another major reason why players believe this is the fact that the Ice Castle has been one of the more dynamic and evolving locations on the Fortnite map since the start of Season 7.

Originally covered in ice and snow, more and more areas of the castle were revealed and became accessible to players once it all started melting, and the most recent area was the underground dungeon that houses the Dragon Eggs.

The Ice Castle on Polar Peak was a mere stone tower prior to all the snow and ice melting to reveal the rest of its grandeur.

The popular theory now is that these eggs will ultimately hatch to become full-fledged Dragons that will act as vehicles in the game, and there seems to be extra attention being paid, as of late, to the dungeon area where they are held. 

There has to be a reason for why Epic Games decided to make this particular location ever-changing, and it could very well be that they are biding their time to unfold something groundbreaking. 

It will be well worth keeping an eye on the Ice Castle, especially the dungeon area, to see if there are any changes made to the location or the Dragon Eggs themselves.

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits. 

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
