Fortnite Players Manage to Get Inside Mysterious Purple Cube

Fortnite players have managed to get inside the huge, mysterious purple cube which appeared seemingly at random on the battle royale map during week 7 of season 5.

The cube was beamed down from the sky in a purple bolt of lightning, but there is little indication as to what it all means, and developer Epic Games is remaining characteristically tight-lipped.

However, some determined players have worked out a way to get inside the cube – and have a look around, although admittedly there wasn’t much to see.

After players discovered that jumping repeatedly on top of the cube and using your pickaxe would launch you high into the air, it appeared to glitch and drop their character models inside.

Judging by the darkness and the fact that the teammate’s body was only half visible, it doesn’t look as though it is intended for players to get inside the cube.

Unfortunately this means there are very few clues still as to the significance of it, but that hasn’t stopped avid Fortnite fans speculating.

The most common idea is that the cube is some form of portal through space and time, linking in with the ‘Worlds Collide’ slogan of season 5 in some way.

Some players think a mix of time periods in history could be coming, with a makeover to the map expected in season 6.

Possible clues hint towards a Dinosaur or otherwise prehistoric concept, with large Dinosaur models on the map in the new ‘Paradise Palms’ map location.

Season 5 is expected to end in the first week of October, and Epic Games will likely have more clues and in-game events coming to ramp up the anticipation for whatever they have planned.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
