New Secret Codes Found in Fortnite Reveal Potential Target for the Rocket

It appears that the usual hype preceding the end of a Season in Fortnite: Battle Royale is back in full force.

Just as with the weeks leading up to the highly anticipated meteor strike at the end of Season 3, there is once again a flurry of in-game activity as Season 4 draws closer to its end.

This time around, the leaks, rumors, and predictions floating around the game’s vast player-base is that the end of the Season will revolve around the large Rocket that is located in the Villain’s Lair that is inside of a hill just outside of Snobby Shores.

To further figure out what exactly will be happening in two weeks’ time, notorious Fortnite data miners ‘TwoEpicBuddies’ have uncovered audio files for the Rocket that reveal some additional major clues.

When the audio of the rocket is looked at through a spectrometer, an image is generated that contains codes made up of these binary numbers :

0B0110 0B1001 0B100 0B1001

When translated, these numbers in fact are coordinates that can be found on the actual Fortnite map:

B6, H9, I8, I9

The first coordinate points to what is the highest hill that can be found on the map, and the other three coordinates are that of the location known as Moisty Mire, which is a remote swamp area that was turned into a move filming set at the start of Season 4.

If Moisty Mire is indeed the target for the Rocket in Fortnite, then it would fall perfectly in line with the heavy rumors and leaks that came out at the start of Season 4, which claimed that the location would end up being destroyed at some point during the Season.

However, all of this should be treated as speculation until any official confirmations or announcements are made by Epic Games.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
