The Latest Strange Portal to Appear in Fortnite Is Significantly Different to All That Came Before

Another one of the mysterious, destructive, portals has appeared in Fortnite Battle Royale but this one seems to have no obvious target.

Destructive portals in Fortnite Battle Royale have been wreaking havoc all over the map ever since the rocket launch event on June 30th.


While nobody knows exactly what they are or what they are doing, one consistent pattern has been that they are attacking recognizable landmarks or signs in well established areas of the map.

So far we’ve seen the Lonely Lodge sign, the Motel sign, the spinning tomato head in Tomato Town, the Retail Row “NOMS” sign, and the burger part of the Durr Burger sign in Greasy Grove destroyed or consumed by the shimmering rifts.


However, the latest portal to show up seems to fly in the face of everything that we thought we knew about them as it isn’t anywhere near anything that could be described as a “landmark”.

Instead, this new apparition is located on the side of a mountain, North West of Greasy Grove, as shown in the video below from FireMonkey:

One theory is that this portal will actually return one of the previously consumed items, like the Lonely Lodge sign, to this new location.


Others believe that the mountain could be damaged or a new cave/tunnel system might be created.

With the speed that things are currently moving at, it seems unlikely that we will have to wait much longer before we get an answer to the latest mystery.

Epic Games have revealed some of the bug fixes that they’ve got lined up for the next Fortnite update, and a few annoying issues look set to be resolved. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its endpoint, some fans are already looking ahead to what the cinematic end of season event might have in store, as well as what Chapter 2, Season 5 could be about in terms of the theme.


Despite all the speculation, Epic Games are just cracking on with keeping the current season feeling fresh – releasing new challenges, new cosmetics, as well as some other superpowers for players to use.

On top of that, they’ve also been rooting out problems with their regular updates. With the v14.30 patch on the horizon, the devs have also got a few fixes coming to all of their modes. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

A handful of problems have been labeled as ‘Fixed in next Game Update’ on their public Trello board as of October 10, with a few annoying battle royale issues being addressed.

These include the issue with movement stopping when placing a marker, inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble, and licensed audio playing on the Last Forever emote.

In addition to those, mobile players who had been frustrated by the XP bar not showing the correct level will have their issues fixed as well. 


Fortnite v14.30 bug fixes

  • Placing a map marker cancels movement 
  • Inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble 
  • Audio of Last Forever emote playing even with licensed audio muted 
  • XP bar can be visually incorrect while in a match/incorrect leveling up on mobile. 

As for Save the World, there are two issues labeled as fixed in Future Game Update, including the wrong animation for the Sword of the Daywalker and Xbox homeshare players being unable to access STW.

However, as leaker iFireMonkey points out, these are not guaranteed to ship with the v14.30 update and could be coming later down the line. We’ll just have to wait and see.
