All Fortnite Season 5 Jurassic World Easter Egg locations

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is filled with a few subtle nods to the Jurassic Park franchise. We went out and found a few.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is filled with obvious references to other franchises like Star Wars. You can also stumble across other secrets, such as nods to the Jurassic Park franchise. Here’s what we found.

Fortnite is well known for its crossovers with other franchises. Season 4 had a Marvel theme, allowing you to use different superheroes, abilities, and cosmetics. Now, The Mandalorian is headlining the latest update with brand new skins, cosmetics, and missions. You can find other references hidden throughout Season 5 as well.

Kratos from God of War has come to the game as a new skin, and there are rumors that Master Chief from Halo will join him as well. You may not know that the game also has some subtle Jurassic World references for all you dinosaur fanatics.

If you head over to The Stealthy Stronghold, you’ll notice that it looks similar to an enclosure from Jurassic Park. In fact, it’s made to resemble the area where the Indominus Rex was held in the movie. Things get even more interesting once you head inside.

When you explore the interior of the structure, you’ll come across some cages. Jurassic Park fans will recognize these as the enclosures where they kept the cloned dinosaurs. If you look at them closely, then you’ll notice that they resemble the ones that held Velociraptors.

These are easy to spot as they are dotted around the POI. One interesting thing to note is that the containers are open, and there are no animals inside them. This means that the beasts either broke out or were set free to roam the grasslands.

The references don’t stop at the cages. If you explore the South-West part of the enclosure, you’ll find helicopter wreckage crashed into a tree. This could be a reference to Simon Masrani’s death in the first Jurassic World film when the Indominus Rex ordered the Pteranodons to bring down the chopper.

You can also earn a special achievement while you’re in the facility. If you wear one of the Dino Guard outfits and get a kill in the Stealthy Stronghold, then you’ll unlock the Clever Girl legacy achievement. This is a nod to Robert Muldoon’s iconic line from the first Jurassic Park film.

The developers left these for hardcore fans of the franchise, as they reference both the new movies and the 1993 classic that started it all.

Epic Games hasn’t given any hint that they’re planning a dinosaur-centric crossover anytime soon, so these are most likely just little Easter eggs for fans. If we learn more or encounter a dinosaur, then we’ll update you.

How to get the Grab-itron in Fortnite Season 7: Locations & guide

Fortnite's Grab-itron weapon

Fortnite’s v17.30 update has introduced the brand-new Grab-itron item, a gravity gun that can throw objects at enemies. Here’s how you can get your hands on this powerful new weapon.

Fortnite’s 17.30 update officially dropped on Tuesday, August 3, bringing with it the upcoming Mothership Abduction POI and the Rift Tour event complete with Ariana Grande concerts.

The headline addition in the patch though is the Grab-itron item, which first appeared in the game’s Season 7 Battle Pass trailer. Since then, players have been anxiously awaiting its arrival, but as each week passed, it never appeared. Finally, that’s all changed, and here’s how you can add it to your inventory during matches.

Where to find the Grab-itron

According to Epic Games, the Grab-itron can be found in three spots: in Chests, on top of Abductors, and inside the Mothership.

Unfortunately, finding them inside of Chests will rely on some luck, as you can never guarantee what loot you will get when you open one. Thankfully, the other two methods should guarantee you the item, although you may have to fight other players who have the same idea.

Finding Abductors is easy. When you jump into a game, simply open your map and you will see three Abductors marked on your map. Where they appear is different in every map, but they always spawn above named POIs. You’ll need to land on top of one to get the Grab-itron, so landing there early is your best bet.

These Abductors can also beam you inside the Mothership, which will also have Grab-itrons inside.

The Grab-itron is essentially a gravity gun. Sometimes called a “UFO in your hands” according to Epic, players can use this weapon to lift and pull objects around them.

“Pull in an object with its flying disc, take it along with you, then launch it at an opponent,” writes the game’s developers, confirming that the damage the enemy takes depends on how big the item is and what it’s made of. Players will also be able to use these items to block incoming damage, although they will eventually break.

The Grab-itron is available in Fortnite right now, so jump into a game and get your hands on one for yourself to test its true power.

Spaceship in Fortnite Season 7

Fortnite’s 17.30 update arrives on August 3, finally introducing the new Grab-itron item, Ariana Grande’s ICON Series skin, and the POI Abduction event that will kick off the end of Season 7.

After a quiet period for the game, updates have been dropping thick and fast since Epic’s summer break, with the 17.30 patch releasing just seven days after Fortnite’s last one.

While 17.20 was relatively small, August 3’s 17.30 patch is set to really shake things up on the island, with the long-rumored Grab-itron finally arriving after weeks of speculation. On top of that, Ariana Grande is set to arrive as the Rift Tour kicks off, while the alien spaceship is likely to start abducting POIs following this patch.

The August 3 17.30 patch is available on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Here are the full patch notes and everything you need to know about this update.

Grab-Itron finally arrives

Eagled-eyed players first spotted the Grab-itron in the Season 7 Battle Pass trailer, but week after week has passed with no sign of the gun in game. Finally, this scientific marvel debuts in Fortnite in the 17.30 patch.

The Grab-itron is essentially a gravity gun, letting players lift objects and throw them at other things, or more importantly, enemies. Played can also use their reload button to rotate objects, which could make the Grab-itron useful for building cover.

The weapon doesn’t actually deal any damage to enemies itself, but with some clever thinking, the Grab-itron can definitely send your opponents back to the Battle Bus.

If you’ve played Fortnite at all during Season 7, you’ll have noticed the giant spaceship that is floating menacingly above the island. Things are about to get a little crazy, with a new in-game event known as the ‘Abduction event’ set to kick off.

While we don’t have all the details just yet, leaks have confirmed that some sort of abductions will be taking place at a number of POIs, with Slurpy Swamp the first to be affected.

Ariana Grande Rift Tour

Fortnite’s Rift Tour is just a few days away, with special challenges and a concert from music superstar Ariana Grande for players to enjoy.

On top of that, Fortnite fans will be able to get their hands on a special Ariana Grande in-game skin, with the ‘no tears left to cry’ singer rocking her signature ponytail and an outfit made out of Zero Point crystals.
