Fortnite players have noticed that the mysterious loot boat that first appeared behind the Fortilla is slowly creeping its way around the map following recent changes. 

Ever since Epic Games started to make their map changes a bit crazier, players have been looking to find secrets that may impact the story of the season. Back in season eight, the mysterious black helicopter moved around the map and ultimately hinted at big changes.

In Chapter 2, Season 3, those secret changes are slightly hard to find given that most of the map is underwater.

However, after the water level started to lower on July 11, players have been able to dig into new map tweaks. Now, some have noticed that the loot boat that was close to the very edge of the map in the southwest corner is slowly inching its way to new destinations.

The new Fortnite season has brought plenty of changes.

Popular streamer SypherPK highlighted the secret change is his map changes video, showing just how far the loot boat has traveled since the start of the season. 

“This boat right over here was not here before, Sypher noted, pointing to a spot on the map where Slurp Factory used to be. “That boat seems to be moving, and honestly, there’s really one area it’s moving towards.”

Sypher pointed out that the boat is seemingly headed for the dam that sits not too far away from Misty Meadows. Though, there’s no telling where it could go.

The boat’s movement was the only change coming to that part of the map, however. Parts of the small islands around Rickety Rig also disappeared with the change in water level.

Whether or not the boat’s movement will lay into the story and conclusion of Chapter 2, Season 3 remains to be seen. But, one thing is for sure, players will be keeping an eye on it’s whereabouts moving forward now that others are becoming more aware of it.

Epic Games has teamed up with Marvel once again in Fortnite Season 4. This time, some of their biggest characters are scattered across the land in the form of bosses. Here’s everything you need to know about where to find them.

It’s a beautiful thing when two worlds collide. Figuratively speaking, of course. But it’s hard to find a pair that has overlapped better than Fortnite and the Marvel Universe. They’re both big, bright, colorful, and rich in lore. And of course, they’re both immensely popular.

It all started when Epic Games launched the Thanos LTM back in April 2018. It’s been a while since then, but the two worlds have crossed over once again, and this time, it’s been a blast.

Galactus, a cosmic being who consumes planets to sustain himself, is planning to wreak havoc on the Fortnite island. As a result, heroes and villains within the Marvel Universe have been popping up all over the place. Some of them are bosses, which players can hunt and eliminate for rewards. But in order to do that, you’ll need to know where to find them.

Here’s what you need to know.

Iron Man

Iron Man might be a fan-favorite hero, but he’s a formidable foe in Fortnite. If you’re willing to take him on to get your hands on his prized possession, a pair of badass rocket gloves, you can find him in Stark Industries. It’s located on the north-east side of the map. But be warned, he’ll put up a hell of a fight.

Gorger

Gorgers are bigger and more dangerous versions of the Gatherer Drones. Galactus has programmed and sent them with one objective; to create chaos.

However, they don’t have a specific spawn location, which makes them a little harder to find. But if you find and kill the Gorger that can be seen at the start of the match, it will shoot a red beam that leads you right to the boss variants.

Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom is one of the more iconic villains in the Marvel Universe. He’s mostly known as the main antagonist in the Fantastic Four series. However, he’s also tangled with Black Panther, Iron Man, Spider-Man, X Men, and The Avengers many times.

The imposing menace has found a new home at Pleasant Park. The first thing you’ll notice is that it’s been renamed Doom’s Domain.

Next, you’ll notice that he’s recruited a bunch of hostile guards to make your life difficult. But don’t worry too much about them. You can find Doctor Doom walking around Doom House, which is on the northern side of Doom’s Domain.

Bear in mind, though, that as a patrolling character, he will make brief stops in other places in the area. So you might need to look around for a bit before you find him.

If you manage to find him and take him down, he’ll drop some items that will let you use his overpowered abilities as well as a card that lets you access a secret vault.

And with that, you’re ready to rock and roll. The boss fights can be somewhat challenging, but with a bit of time and effort, you’ll persevere.
