New Mysterious Unbreakable Vault in Fornite Battle Royale Possibly Hints at Vehicles or Season 5

A new mysterious and unbreakable hatch or vault like object has been spotted on the Fortnite Battle Royale map, sending fan speculation into overdrive.

The new object has appeared at the start of week 2 for season 4 in Fortnite, and while it could simply be an inconsequential addition to the map, the Fortnite devs are almost certainly up to something.

With the frenzy about Fortnite at an all time high, every little detail is scrutinised by players, and developers Epic Games will know this, so adding this new hatch is likely to be the first hint of something to come.

One notable omission from Fortnite is of course vehicles, which feature in many other of the popular battle royale games.

Some fans are speculating that the hatch is in fact a garage – a potential spawn point for a vehicle of some description, and the cover certainly looks similar to a garage door.

However, if the development team haven’t yet introduced vehicles, it is likely that they are avoiding them for balance reasons, given the Fortnite map is fairly small in comparison the larger BR’s such as PUBG.

The other possibility is some kind of hint/link back to the classic TV series ‘Lost’ in which there was also an unbreakable vault.

While in Lost there were numbers associated, there are some odd scribblings on the back of the Fortnite vault which likely entail their own mystery.

Finally, the vault could of course link in with the other bunkers discovered around the map, with a possible look all the way to season 5.

The reason for the bunkers is still fairly unclear, as well as this mysterious vault. 

For now, players will need to try to solve the scribbling on the back, and in a Lost style clifff hanger, may need to wait until the next season to find out what is next…

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
