Missing ‘Durrr Burger’ Sign From Fortnite Found in Real Life Desert

Up until recently, one of the most recognizable landmarks of the Greasy Grove location in Fortnite was the larger burger sign above the ‘Durrr Burger’ restaurant.

However, on July 5th, the sign was the latest victim of one of the time warps/portals that have been appearing across the map, causing things to disappear without leaving a trace.

In a mysterious turn of events, the Durrr Burger sign has appeared at a place that no one would have expected – a real life desert.

Photographer Sela Shiloni stumbled across the cartoon-like object in an unidentified California desert, and posted pictures of it on social media.

Shiloni, clearly not a Fortnite player, was very confused as to why there was a large burger in the middle of nowhere.

Upon seeing, many Fortnite conspiracy theorist jumped into action, proposing ideas that would explain this mysterious development.

Many are of the belief this is an outlandish effort from Epic Games to drop further clues as to what lays in store once Season 4 ends and Season 5 kicks off in several days.

One of the prevailing theories over recent weeks is that the next season will incorporate elements of a classic “wild western” theme, and this Durrr Gurger desert phenomenon certainly would supplement that.

Considering that Epic have not commented on this, there is no evidence that they were involved in any way. Someone could have simply done this on their own in an effort to throw the Fortnite community into a frenzy.

Furthermore, the Durrr Burger sign was not the first or only location on the map to be hit with a portal rift; the Tomato Man in Tomato Town, Lonely Lodge, and the Motel were also hit but none of those items have appeared in real life locations.

If you’ve been wondering what incentives you might be getting to watch the upcoming FNCS Season 5 tournament then you’re questions have finally been answered.

With the tournament only a couple days away, Epic has gone ahead and revealed some cool new drops that players will be able to get their hands on during the event, including some sprays, a loading screen, and more, simply by tuning into the tournament on Twitch.

Epic has unveiled some loot that players will be able to get their hands on during the tournament.

Like most games nowadays, Epic Games is utilizing Twitch drops to give players an incentive to watch the FNCS Season 5 tournament. This means that, if you watch the tournament on various officially-supported streams that have drops enabled, you will be able to earn in-game items for Fortnite.

Some of them are a bit small like an FNCS spray and emoticon, but two of the more significant items is that of a special loading screen which features some of the characters featured in the Season 5 battle pass, as well as a cool, foam finger-style back bling.

All in all, it’s nothing too crazy, but it’s still a nice little reward for watching the tournament.

How to earn Twitch drops

Like any other Twitch drop, players will have to have their Twitch and Epic Games accounts linked before they can start earning their rewards. To do that, you’ll need to follow some simple steps, courtesy of the developers themselves.

  • Go to Epic Game’s official “Connected Accounts” page
  • Sign-in to your Epic Games account
  • Click on the “Connect” button under the Twitch tab
  • Click “Link your Account”
  • Sign-in to your Twitch account at the prompt
  • Select “Authorize”

After that, your Epic account and your Twitch account should be linked together and you’ll be able to earn items on drop-enabled streams. Once you get them, you should see them in a notification at the top of your Twitch page and they should appear in-game soon.

FNCS Season 5 streaming schedule

If you’re wondering the full streamable events, we have you covered. Epic says that they’ll be streaming the most “pivotal” stages of the competition, which only include the final rounds of the qualifiers, as well as the semi-finals and finals.

This means that, while qualifiers themselves will take place from Feb 4-7, Feb 11-14, and Feb 18-21 respectively, the only ones that will be streamed will be the final days on Feb 7, 11, and 21.

The full breakdown of times can be found below:

  • EU Region Broadcast
    • Start time: 1 PM EST
    • EU Live Coverage: 1:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 4:30 PM EST

    • Break: 8:30 PM EST
    • NAW Live Coverage: 9:15 PM EST
    • Broadcast end: 12:20 AM EST

It’s important to remember that you watch either an official stream from Epic Games or a supported stream with drops enabled, otherwise you won’t get all the cool loot.
