Epic Games have secretly added yet another super rare item in Fortnite Battle Royale and if you thought the Mythic Goldfish was hard to find, you might have your work cut out with this one. 

As many members of the community will know by now, patch notes are just as part a myth and legend as anything else you can find in the battle royale title, with Epic not releasing them for consecutive seasons.

In the absence of official confirmation each time a patch rolls out, on one hand there is definitely frustration among players that they don’t know what’s been mixed up, but on the other hand there are certainly some easter eggs to be found from time to time as well. This time, a Golden Mushroom has been unveiled.

Where to find Gold Mushrooms in Fortnite Season 3

Following an update on July 2, the game developers have added one of the best shield items the game has ever seen, and you might be a little surprised when you first see it. After all, the vegetables are usually blue in-game.

The new item gives players 100 shield after they have eaten it, and they can be stacked to a maximum of three in one inventory slot.

  1. Jump into Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop into a location of either swamp land or forestry, where trees are located.
  3. Check out underneath the trees and in the water, as their spawns are quite different to regular shrooms.
  4. Take your time, keep looking around, and hopefully you will come up with the goods.
  5. If you can’t find it there, head into Creative mode, select the ‘Golden Mushroom’ option and check it out. At least then, you will get to see it for sure!

Check out the Golden Mushroom in Fortnite Creative, if you’re not having any luck in Battle Royale mode, with island code 0972-8666-3236.

If you’re wondering about your chances of finding one as well. leaker HYPEX reckons there’s a 0.0001% spawn chance, so don’t be shocked if you go a few games without stumbling upon the incredible new consumable.

It also looks like they don’t spawn in food boxes, but instead can be found planted into the ground just like many others, near trees, and also in water. So, keep your eyes peeled.

Finding the “rarest consumable in the game” as it is labelled in Creative mode should stand you in good stead for the late game in Fortnite, and definitely would be an ace to pull from your sleeve in gunfights after taking damage.

With this guide, hopefully you will find one sooner rather than later, even if you have to settle for the Creative option.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
