A new theory has emerged in the Fortnite community, stating that the Visitor may be set to return as part of Fortnite Chapter Two’s upcoming third season. 

Fortnite Season 3 has now been delayed multiple times. Firstly because of issues at Epic Games, and then because of the equality protests sweeping across much of the United States. However, barring any further delays, it looks set for a June 17 start date. 

This second delay also pushed the mysterious Device live event back to June 15, allowing fans more time to speculate what will happen. Leaks so far suggest the whole map will be flooded, but details remain scarce. One new theory has emerged, suggesting that The Visitor – from Chapter One, Season 4 – could be about to make another appearance.

In Bunker Jonesy’s Season 9 drawing, fans can just about make out an island with palm trees, something we can now identify as a hint to Chapter Two. One Redditor – u/Racoco802 – has speculated that there’s also an image of a dam collapsing.

The only dam that we’ve seen in Fortnite is Hydro Dam, on the outskirts of Misty Meadows. The Redditor also pointed to old excerpts from The Visitor’s recordings, which refer to “triggering the device”.

It has been widely taken that the devices being referenced were Rift Beacons from Season X but, with so much emphasis being placed on the ‘Device Event’, they may have been another hint at Chapter 2’s narrative, much like Bunker Jonesy’s drawings.

The Redditor concludes: “My theory is that during the event The Visitor/The Scientist will open a rift above Hydro 16 Dam and come to our map.”

As far as theories go, this is one of the more believable ones we’ve seen. The map certainly looks to be flooded in some way, but could it all be at the hands of The Visitor?

Only time will tell, but past events have proved how much Epic like to drop hints and teasers to mess with Fortnite’s fan-base.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
