Wendy’s takes surprising stance on Fortnite’s burgers vs. pizza debate

Wendy’s, the international food-chain that specializes in burgers, has taken a firm and active stance in the ongoing Fortnite debate of pizza vs burgers.

The question arose earlier in November when Fortnite tweeted a poll-question asking their followers if they preferred ‘Beef Boss’ or ‘Tomatohead,’ two in-game skins depicting mascots for the fictitious chains Durrr Burger and Pizza Pit.

Thesituation escalated when food trucks for each restaurant were seen competing for territory throughout the Fortnite’s sprawling map.

In a surprising series of events, Wendy’s has sided with Team Pizza, claiming they spotted freezers at Durrr Burger locations in game that go against Wendy’s philosophy of “Fresh, Never Frozen” when it pertains to hamburger meat.

At the time of writing, Wendy’s is taking a persistent position on the matter by broadcasting on Twitch to solidify its anti-frozen-burger agenda.

With a ‘verified’ checkmark in tow, the Wendy’s Twitch account has repeatedly landed at the Durrr Burger location with a squad all dressed in the Fable skin modeled after Little Red Riding Hood (which is also is a clear callback to the iconic Wendy’s logo) and proceeded to destroy the restaurant repeatedly.

Although a fun-spirited move by the burger-chain’s social media team, so far it has been an incredibly successful move with many in Twitch chat suggesting this stunt will prompt them eating there tonight.

Since the stream’s start, the new Twitch account has over 4,000 followers, an impressive 3,000 concurrent viewers, and they even managed to win a game!

At the time of writing, no one seems to have stepped up to lend a helping hand towards poor Durrr Burger as their restaurant is getting continually destroyed and blasted on social media.

After the incredible Nexus War event that saw Galactus finally attack the Fortnite island, Chapter 2 Season 5 is officially here, bringing a host of updates to the game, including new weapons, a Bounty system, and some major map changes.

Season 4’s dramatic conclusion captivated the world on December 1, as the “Devourer of Worlds” Galactus finally reigned terror over the game’s island, attempting to pull the Zero Point out of the middle of the map to be consumed and end reality as we know it. Thankfully, with the help of some Marvel heroes like Ironman, Thor, and Wolverine, the gigantic villain was banished, but not before he made some startling changes.

Season 5 is set to revolve around the Zero Point, a massive ball of energy that creates the reality Fortnite exists in, and with it now exposed, Jonesy and some powerful bounty hunters have arrived on the island to stabilize it, and prevent any players from escaping the island.

With new weapons, the Bounty system, and some major map updates, there’s a lot to sink your teeth into this season. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Season 5: Zero Point.

New Weapons and Items

As always, a new season brings new toys for players to try out, and Season 5 is no exception. The new Dragon Shotgun is sure to lead to your enemy’s fiery demise, while the seven new fish available to catch in-game will give you a nice boost when needed.

Fans of Disney+’s The Mandalorian will get to use the weapons they see the character uses in the show, with his Amban Sniper Rifle making an appearance, while you’ll also be able to take to the sky using his Jetpack too.

Interestingly, there are also Gold Bars this season, along with a safe to keep them in. What you’ll be able to do with these bars remains unclear, but it’s likely they are the reward for capturing bounties and could be used to improve your loadout by buying new weapons or items. You can view the full list of new items below.

  • Dragon Shotgun
  • Shadow Tracker
  • New Floppers
    • Tiger Zero Fish
    • Leafy Zero Fish
    • Skull Zero Fish
    • Rift-To-Go Flopper
    • Sandstorm Rift Flopper
    • Zero Point Flopper
  • Bounty Board
  • Gold Bars & Safe
  • Boom’s Sniper Rifle (Mythic)
  • Amban Sniper Rifle (Mythic)
  • Mandalorian’s Jetpack (Mythic)

Vaults and Unvaults

Along with new items, Epic Games have used the Vault system to freshen up the loot pool. Charge and Double Barrel Shotguns are back, along with the P90, Storm Scout Rifle, and Balloons.

Players will be saying goodbye to the Revolver, Fire Trap, Scar AR, and Tactical SMGs. Perhaps the biggest vault, the Pump Shotgun has once again been removed from the game, although it’s always worth remembering that just because an item has been vaulted doesn’t mean it won’t come back again in the future. You can check out the full list of vaults and unvaults below.

Unvaulted

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

Vaulted

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass

Of course, there’s also a new Battle Pass for players to grind through this season, with The Mandalorian the stand-out addition, alongside a number of new skins that are unlike anything we’ve seen before.

The full Battle Pass hasn’t been released just yet, but you can take a look at the trailer which has been dropped by Epic Games.

Map Changes

There’s something strange going on with the Fortnite Season 5 map, with some classic locations returning, but not exactly as we remember them. Tilted Towers and Salty Springs have been merged together to create Salty Towers, a hybrid of both original map locations.

Elsewhere, Stealthy Stronghold, Hunter’s Haven, and Colossal Coliseum are the three POIs to be added this year, along with a host of other Season 5 map changes that have yet to be discovered.

Bug fixes

No Fortnite patch would be complete without bug fixes, and Epic Games have ironed out a few issues heading into the new season, including a fix for keybinding issues and disabling the Bash Burner pickaxe in competitive playlists:

  • Huntress Outfit appearing as Ramirez or another Outfit.
  • Impossible to bind the same key to different actions with Keyboard.
  • Bash Burner Pickaxe temporarily disabled in competitive playlists.
