It seems that with every passing week, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins continues to take further steps into unprecedented areas of gaming success.

The popular Twitch personality has seen his brand become globally recognized, and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

After retiring from Halo to become a full-time streamer, Ninja began experiencing an explosion of success that went hand-in-hand with the rise of the popular video game Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Since then, he has regularly played the game with global music icons and professional athletes, and has even hosted his own Fortnite competition in Las Vegas.

While most Twitch streamers would have been content with the celebrity lifestyle and over 200,000 subscribers on Twitch, Ninja has continued to look for more ways to grow and heighten his brand.

On May 11th, he tweeted out a picture of himself alongside Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA professional basketball team.

 

Cuban responded to this tweet with an image of his own, with a caption that strongly hinted at the prospect of the two doing business together.

Mark Cuban, who is known to be a shrewd and successful business man, has a well-documented interest in video games and esports as his Mavericks are one of 17 NBA teams to be represented in the inaugural season of the NBA 2K League.

This, coupled with the fact that Ninja has pushed online gaming to reaches never imagined, makes the idea of a partnership between the two not only  a possibility, but also a probability.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

Fortnite’s Season 3 map, a flooded masterpiece with some intriguing additions.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!

 

As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
