A lot has been happening on the Fortnite island since the arrival of Chapter 2 Season 5. Epic Games has successfully maintained a complex storyline in its battle royale game over the years, and the latest season is no exception. All the new characters, POIs, and game modes are in accordance with this storyline.
In a recent video, Top5Gaming explained all the changes on the island following the Marvel-themed season:
Bounty hunters like the Mandalorian and Lexa arrive in Fortnite
The Marvel superheroes spared no effort to evade the wrath of Galactus. Regardless, the ‘Devourer of Worlds’ caused some serious harm to the island and left the Zero Point exposed yet again. Midas had tried to escape the infinite loop in Chapter 1 and had caused similar troubles in the process.
Up til now, several new POIs and some from Chapter 1 have returned to the game inexplicably. Agent Jonesy now has to ensure that no one leaves the island, and these unusual activities come to an end. As a result, he is assembling a team of exceptionally skilled bounty hunters which includes the Mandalorian, Lexa, Kratos, Kondor, and Mancake, among others.
Certainly, more bounty hunters will make their way to Fortnite with upcoming updates. As per theories, they will be:
- The Terminator Predator Female Midas Master Chief from Halo
The aforementioned bounty hunters and Agent Jonesy comprise the Imagined Order. This also explains the ‘IO’ agents that spawn from underneath the ground in Hunter’s Haven.
343 Industries has just announced that Xbox exclusive Halo Infinite won’t release until the Fall…
Every different version of Midas is a ‘Snapshot’
After barely escaping the island at the end of Chapter 1, Midas was supposedly eaten by a shark. He surprisingly returned to the game in Fortnitemares 2020, and fans believe that he will appear once again this season.
Agent Jones mentions Snapshot in this season’s trailer while talking with his boss, “Oh come on! The last thing we need to know is the Snapshot in me inside the loop.”
In simple words, a snapshot is the clone of anyone who enters or exits the loop.
Hence, it seems that Midas Rex, Shadow Midas, and even the Midas fish, are all snapshots of Midas. One of the NPCs, Bunker Jonesy, also claims, “Keep it quiet, but I don’t think the Midas that returned is the same Midas.”
All these developments hint towards a final showdown between the Imagined Order, the Seven, and someone who’ll try to escape the Fortnite island. Fans can definitely expect more POIs from previous seasons randomly coming back to Fortnite, and a grand event at the end of the season.
