A mysterious rock pool has emerged on the Fortnite map, and players can help find out what’s underneath using their pickaxe.

The location has been discovered just outside of Paradise Palms, secured with metal fencing with diggers and bulldozers found around the perimeter of the rocks.

Previous leaks have suggested that Dusty Divot could be changed in a future update with lava set to fill in the hole left by the meteor. Could the construction workers be in preparation for such an event?

EPIC GAMESThe building site is located just to the west of Paradise Palms near the pirate outpost.

Players can help uncover what lies beneath the new location by destroying the rocks with their pickaxe in any playlist – including playground. The rock has a universal health bar meaning you can track how much is left to break.

Fortnite leaker @ShiinaBR has estimated the time it will take to destroy the area – with an estimated completion date of March 30 at 6:00 PST – but with almost 30,000 HP taken away already, it could be much sooner.

This isn’t the first time Epic Games have teased with a mysterious location that is able to be damaged by players.

Back in Season 7, players managed to band together to take down an iceberg which had a starting health of 5,000,000,000. Unfortunately, they were left disappointed as the iceberg finally broke to reveal a mysterious bunker that had previously been seen at wailing woods.

Players destroyed the iceberg near Polar Peak to discover another mysterious bunker commonly found at Wailing Woods.

Once again, Epic are keeping us guessing as to what could be coming in a future update – only time will tell what lies beneath the new location.

Thanks to the hard-working users who will be mining the rock pool non-stop over the next few days, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
