Fortnite’s Storm Is Destroying Buildings Inside The Circle

Team Liquid’s Jake “POACH” Brumleve found out the hard way that Fortnite’s storm is destroying buildings inside the storm.

POACH was coming towards the end of a scrim with Liquid teammate Thomas “72hrs” Mulligan when the storm began to close in behind them. Prepared for it, POACH and 72hrs are heard in the clip discussing how far the storm would come in, and calculating what their next move would be.

However, as the storm moves in, POACH’s building begins to disappear, even the parts that are outside of the storm, leaving him open and defenseless against his enemies.

POACH immediately takes a shotgun blast as 72hrs tells him to build, as the floor beneath POACH hilariously disappears under his feet while he desperately tries to build around him.

The Team Liquid pro player complained about lag while he tried to fix the destruction that was taking place behind him, and it’s entirely possible that some lag caused the storm to glitch out and destroy his entire building.

Alternatively, this could be how the storm is designed, and that any building that touches the storm will be destroyed in its entirety.

The new storm mechanics were introduced in the V5.40 update that released on Thursday, September 6. Included in the update was the new High Stakes event, the Grappler item, and updated in-game locations like Dusty Diner.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
