Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is about to come to an end with a huge live event called Collision, so we’ve got all the leaks and rumors that you need ahead of the big season finale.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 has so far focused on the war between the Imagined Order and The Seven, with various locations around the map like The Daily Bugle and Tilted Towers serving as battlegrounds.

After the most recent update, a brand new location known as The Collider appeared on the map. It’s now emitting strange pulses, hinting that something big is coming soon – and it looks like a live finale event.

It’s been a while since Fortnite players have been able to take part in a proper live event, so excitement levels are pretty high. Check out everything you need to know including event dates and leaks below.

When is the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event?

Epic Games have now confirmed that the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event will take place on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST.

It was initially assumed that the live event would take place on June 3, as that’s when the Battle Pass is scheduled to expire, although it looks like Epic Games have now extended that date by one day.

What will happen during the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event?

As always, details of the upcoming Fortnite live event are being kept firmly under wraps, but we do know it will have something to do with The Collider – aka the Doomsday Device at the center of the map.

It’s likely that Dr. Slone and the Imagined Order will be using this device to cause catastrophic destruction to the Island, and it will be up to The Seven and Fortnite players around the world to put a stop to them.

The official Fortnite Twitter account has also teased that the Mecha Team Leader from way back in Chapter 1 Season 9 will be returning to help players defeat the Imagined Order.

A countdown timer has now appeared in the Fortnite lobby, which essentially acts as a timer letting players know when the Collision live event will begin. The timer will disappear on June 4, 2022, at 4PM ET.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event leaks & rumors

One of the first Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 live event leaks came on May 19, 2022, where dataminers like iFireMonkey shared a first look at the lobby background that will appear in the build-up to the event.

This lobby background offers further confirmation that Mecha Team Leader will be returning during the live event – and the window in the background suggests that the event could even be set in outer space.


On a side note, it was recently teased that a Darth Vader skin will appear in Chapter 3 Season 3. This, combined with the lobby background above, has left many fans speculating that the next season will be space-themed.

We’ll keep this page updated as more rumors and leaks get shared, but for the most part, we’ll try to keep things a surprise – that’s the best way to enjoy these events after all!
