As we approach Fortnite Chapter 2’s second season, players are theorizing about what the future holds, and some are suggesting Epic could introduce a new building material.

Since the dawn of Fortnite, players have been using three different types of building materials – wood, brick, and metal.

There hasn’t ever been much of a reason for the developers to add any additional options, but that hasn’t stopped fans from thinking it’s happening.

Metal might not be the strongest material in Season 2.

On February 5, Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi noted that something strange was going on behind the scenes in the files.

While he didn’t have a ton of information, he did reveal a selection of gold objects that could end up hinting towards something bigger, perhaps even a new material entirely.

Fortnite does have a “Solid Gold” LTM that makes all of the guns Legendary, but it has nothing to do with objects on the map, so it seems like that can be ruled out as a possibility.

That has led many player to believe Epic plans on introducing a brand-new gold building material into the mix in Season 2. The start of a season always brings a variety of changes, so that would be the best time to introduce anything new.

Move over, brick. There’s a new sheriff in town.

By doing so at this time, it would also give players some more time to adjust to a new meta before the next season of the Fortnite Champion Series begins.

Introducing a fourth building material doesn’t seem like it’d be too groundbreaking of a change, but there would need to be some sort of grace period to let players get the hang of things.

Wood now might have yet another material better than it.

If this does end up happening, that would likely mean gold would become the most durable material in the game. If gold can only be farmed from specific objects like the ones we saw in Lucas7yoshi’s tweet, then it would quickly become a rare and valuable commodity.

Season 1 ends on February 20 and we can likely expect the second season to begin around the same time, so if this change is coming, it’ll be arriving very soon.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
