There is a lot going on in the world of Fortnite Battle Royale, and the tag team of MonsterDFace and 2LoudTX is here to break it down. 

The Fortnite experts have teamed up yet again in the latest episode of the Fortnite Podcast, in which they discuss some of the major storylines captivating the game’s vast player-base.

One such topic is the recent Butterfly Event, which was so positively received by players. The event was a one-time affair, meaning that players worldwide had to queue into a match by a specific time in order to experience it.

What resulted was a magnificent spectacle that led to some considerable changes to the map, especially in and around Loot Lake.

The pair also breaks down some of the last additions and changes to Fortnite, including the implementation and subsequent removal of the controversial 25% explosive damage penetration mechanic.

Recent updates have also introduced the all-new Balloons and Heavy Assault Rifle, both of which are glossed over in Episode 53 of the podcast. 

And last but not least – TwitchCon. The finals of the $10 million Fall Skirmish competition series recently took place in San Jose, and both MonsterDFace and 2LoudTX attended.

MonsterDFace casted the second day of the qualifying heats, while 2LoudTX represented the journalistic side of things, interviewing prominent pro players and content creators who were in attendance. 

In Episode 53, both recollect the unique experiences they had at the event, offering viewers a glimpse into what it’s like behind-the-scenes at one of the biggest gaming conventions in the world. 

Here is a preview video highlighting what viewers can expect in the latest episode of the Fortnite Podcast.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Epic Games
Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
