Fortnite players hear Dragon noises in-game and Ninja thinks he knows why

Fortnite players are convinced that they can hear the sound of a dragon in-game, and top streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins thinks it’s possible that a dragon will be the next mythic weapon.

Hints at a dragon first came with leaks showing a mysterious egg, supposedly buried under the castle near Polar Peaks.

Thanks to a glitch, a player was able to get under the castle, and indeed, found five of these so-called ‘dragon eggs’ resting underneath.


Now though, an even bigger clue has been discovered – actual in-game noises.

Although it can’t be said with certainty that these are the sounds of a dragon, it seems unlikely that it would be any other creature, given the leaks we’ve seen already.

This clip from G2 esports player and streamer Dominik ‘RazZzero0o’ Beckmann includes the noises, which you can hear in the background throughout.

As rumors of the dragon noises spread, players began speculating on how such a potentially game changing feature could be implemented.

Popular streamer Ninja theorized that the dragon could possibly feature as a new mythic weapon. Previous mythic weapons include the controversial ‘infinity blade’ and Thanos’ ‘infinity gauntlet.

“That’s the next mythic, for sure” Ninja says, “it will be a dragon with like 5000 HP, it will be so massive.” Fellow streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan jokes “we’ll know exactly when the dragon’s coming – as soon as they announce the next big tournament.”

Epic Games have been silent on the dragon noises being heard, and of course never comment on any leaks, but fans are now anticipating some official hints as to when we will see these dragons in game.

However, many players will also be cautions in their expectations, after the controversy over the far too powerful Infinity Blade. If these dragons are indeed a powerful mythic weapon, hopefully they are given a separate mode, and are not added by default to every mode.

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
