Fortnite’s Doomsday Device has been heavily teased for a number of weeks and the climactic Season 2 event is now just hours away. Here’s everything you need to know to keep on top of the highly anticipated game-changer.

Epic Games has often stopped the gaming industry with enormous Fortnite events. Millions of players come together to watch spectacular concerts or map-changing catastrophes. Season 2 is no different. 

A Doomsday Device has been in construction for weeks and it’s all set to make its mark on June 15. Despite delays, ‘The Device’ event is now right around the corner and here’s how you can tune in.

How to watch ‘The Device’ event in Fortnite

The Doomsday Device could be hours away from changing Fortnite forever.

Epic Games has confirmed that the action will kick off at 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 8PM CEST / 4AM AEST on Monday, June 15. You’ll want to be in-game ahead of time, however, as “space is limited.”

Given just how popular Fortnite’s events have become – with over 12 million tuning in for the most recent spectacle – the servers certainly take a hit each time around. “Arrive 30 minutes early to help secure your spot,” the developers have advised.

You’ll want to load into a lobby well ahead of time to ensure your spot.

No different from every other major event, the biggest personalities in the Fortnite scene will likely be streaming their perspectives too. From Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins to Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, you’ll be able to watch your favorite content creators as The Device event unfolds.

If you’re unable to be in-game at the time of the event, we’ve embedded a few of these streams below so that you can keep on top of it all.

What to expect from The Device event

Try to stick close to The Agency as the Doomsday Device could emerge here.

No specific location has been outlined just yet, though players will likely want to hang around The Agency. 

Earlier leaks have revealed what might become of this POI as a result of the Doomsday Device. While the entire map could change, it’s looking as though The Agency will take the biggest hit.

There’s no telling just how long this particular event may last, though it could be over in a flash with long-lasting ramifications.

Additional leaks have shown the Battle Bus flying over a flooded locale, most likely hinting at a disastrous event completely changing the state of the map.

The Device could see players swimming underwater as disaster strikes and floods huge chunks of the battle royale island. Hatches that have popped up around The Agency could also come into play here.

Epic Games
Leaked posters also teased an underwater theme for Season 3 of Fortnite.

The Doomsday Device has been counting down for quite some time and in just a few hours, the state of Fortnite could well be changed forever.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s rumored there will be another blackout between Season 4 and Season 5

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
