SypherPK predicts exact location of Fortnite’s Atlantis POI

Popular Fortnite content creator Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan thinks he knows exactly where the game’s highly-anticipated upcoming Atlantis point of interest will be on the map.

While a number of Fortnite’s biggest names have made the switch to other titles, such as Call of Duty battle royale Warzone, Sypher has stayed loyal to Epic Games’ hit and has remained a go-to authority on all things Fortnite.

That’s why, now he’s predicted where the Atlantis POI will be, fans and players are forced to listen, because he might just be spot on.

Aquaman has been a high-profile addition to Fortnite, and players expect Atlantis to become a POI soon too.

Sypher first called that Atlantis will definitely become a POI once it became evident that Aquaman was getting involved in the game, with the DC Comics character getting his own skin.

Now, as the map is slowly draining and the water levels falling, Sypher has found exactly where he expects Atlantis to be.

In the upper-left corner of the map, west of Pleasant Park and north of Sweaty Sands, a huge whirlpool is forming.

“This big whirlpool is big for a reason,” Sypher said in his July 18 upload. “I’m pretty sure, when the water fully drains, Atlantis is going to be here. This looks like the perfect spot for that POI.”

Sypher does add that, while he knows nothing just like everyone else, he believes that Atlantis will rise above the water, rather than being partly or completely submerged in it.

The prediction definitely seems possible: That is a huge space being taken up by the whirlpool, so it’s hard to imagine it won’t go on to be something much bigger and better, and could be the perfect spot for Atlantis to fill.

There’s no telling when or even if the fabled Atlantis POI will join the Fortnite map, but if it does, all eyes will be on the north-west corner of the map, especially with Fortnite Season 4 set to kick off in August.

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
