Secret Fortnite Season 2 map changes hint at upcoming Midas event

Fortnite is constantly evolving, and some eagle-eyed players have spotted some secret map changes that could provide some major hints about this season’s final in-game event involving one of the Battle Pass’ main characters.

Fortnite Season 2 is rapidly drawing to its conclusion, with just two weeks left in the Battle Pass for challenges. As always though, it is likely that Epic Games will add a few extra weeks to allow players to rank up and earn any last-minute skins, usually rounding things out with Overtime challenges.

Avid Fortnite fans will know that the season always ends with a major event though, and with Season 2 following the story of a team of spies who have taken residency at new location The Agency, it seems that one of the group’s most recognizable characters could have a fairly major part to play in the final chapter of Season 2 before things draw to a close.

Midas is instantly recognizable thanks to his golden touch.

Midas is a legendary skin who comes with a special skill. Anything the character touches turns to gold, so any weapons you pick up while wearing the skin turn to gold, and remain that way even when you drop them for others to use, a reference to the Greek myth of King Midas who could do the same thing.

Of course, that means that his chair at The Agency’s meeting table was different from the rest, as it was golden unlike the others, but an eagle-eyed Fortnite fan has noticed that the chair no longer sits in the massive building, and instead now sits inside the large blue house at Salty Springs.

While many surmised that he likely moved it there himself, there’s another map change that casts doubt on this theory, as a Ghost faction poster can be found sitting outside beside a trash can, something Midas is unlikely to have done himself as one of the group’s main characters. Whether this means someone has stolen his chair and moved it there themselves, or if Midas is switching allegiances, remains to be seen, but with other map changes taking place at Crash Site and Pleasant Park, it’s clear that something is going on.

Midas’s chair got moved from the agency to the big blue house in salty springs. At first I thought this was where Midas may have moved because there is a ghost document on the table, but if you look in the trash you can see a “Join Ghost” poster, interesting, definitely keep an eye on this location! from r/FortNiteBR

It’s likely that we will see these map changes continue over the next few weeks, and we may even get some more hints about what is happening on the Fortnite island.

When this event will kick off remains to be seen, but fans are already starting to look forward to the end of the season and what it may bring.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
