Fortnite’s strange, purple cube has been doing a lot of weird things lately, one of which was crushing major Fortnite streamer ‘CDNThe3rd’ during one of Ninja’s streams – and leaving him alive.
In a stream on August 28th, massive Fortnite streamer Ninja and a group of players surrounded the cube during one of its movements in an attempt to guess what direction it would roll toward. Fellow player and streamer CDNThe3rd, also known as Ceez, decided to go underneath the cube in a moment of bravery – resulting in what was supposed to be his inevitable demise.
Instead of bouncing leagues away from the cube, as players usually do when they try to attack the it, Ceez remained in place – without being squished.
The gathered players broke into laughter at his fate, but their humor quickly turned to awe that he was still alive.
“He’s still alive!
While CDN’s character was on all fours, he had survived, much to the shock and amusement of his team. Whether this was a glitch or not remains to be seen, as the cube possesses an arsenal of mysterious properties.
During one of Fortnite’s Summer Skirmish matches, Ninja witnessed the formation of the giant, purple cube. Since then, the cube has remained an object of mystery throughout the Fortnite playerbase, with many users trying to solve the puzzle of its existence.
It moves slowly throughout the map, making deep, groaning sounds. The cube also has strange markings carved into its sides, and will launch players a considerable distance should they try to attack it or jump on top of it. With the equally mysterious lightning now striking the map, players are gearing up for what could be a massive game event.
