Fortnite Black Hole likely to return ahead of Season 5

Fortnite Season 4 is expected to end with a large event, and data miners have found that there’s likely some downtime between seasons.

Fortnite Season 4 is set to end on December 1, and many fans are anticipating it to conclude with the return of the Black Hole.

We first saw the Black Hole at the end of Fortnite Chapter 1, when players stared at it for almost two days in an agonizing wait for Chapter 2 to begin.

In Season 4’s end event, players are gearing up to fight Galactus alongside their favorite Marvel heroes. Galactus will likely leave devastation in his wake.

The Black Hole itself might not return, but a massive event followed by downtime is expected to occur.

Expected downtime

The event that will end Season 4 is expected to be Fortnite’s biggest event yet. Fortnite has seen several in-game events such as the Star Wars teaser, Travis Scott concert, and ‘The End.’ The files for the next event are 10x bigger than those for ‘The End’ event, which was the largest event at its time.

While Season 4 will end on November 30, it’s possible that we won’t get to play Season 5 until December 3. Similar to the end of Chapter 1, there is a reported 36-hour downtime between the seasons. Several signs that point towards this downtime.

Fortnite Season 4 has hosted regular tournaments and competitive events. However, there are no events scheduled between December 1 at 4 PM EST (the time of the event) and December 3 at 4 AM EST (the presumed release time for Season 5).

Data miners have discovered that the Black Hole event files have reappeared in the game. Twitter account iFireMonkey reported that ‘RockyRidge’ has appeared in the game files, which is the same code used for the Black Hole Event.

After dropping a small spoiler-warning, data miners FNLeaksAndInfo announced there might be downtime after Season 4.

“Prepare for some more possible downtime after the event similar to the Black Hole event!,” they tweeted. “To be continued! In Season 5!”

It’s likely that the ‘to be continued’ text will appear after the Season 4 event concluded.

Other data miners are also reporting that there may be a 10-hour downtime, as opposed to the expected 36.

However long the downtime lasts, players can expect a massive event to end Fortnite Chapter 2’s fourth season.

How to find and kill Predator in Fortnite Season 5

The Predator in Fortnite Season 5

The Predator is the latest enemy added to Fortnite Season 5, and you can battle him to unlock a brand new skin. This boss fight will be extremely difficult, so here’s the best way to get it done quickly.

Epic Games dropped the v15.21 update on Wednesday, January 20, and this brought some brand new content to Fortnite Season 5. This includes The Predator, who is available as a Boss character for you to battle.

Defeating him is one of the Jungle Hunter Quests in the Battle Pass, and completing that will unlock the Predator skin. Killing this alien hunter is no easy task since he’s a powerful foe, so here are some tips to keep in mind.

Where to find Predator in Fortnite Season 5

If you want to challenge The Predator then you’ll have to visit Stealthy Stronghold, which is located on the north part of the map. Once you’re there, you should head towards the forest on the left-hand side of the POI.

Unfortunately, the hunter doesn’t remain in the same place, so you’ll have to explore the forest a bit before you come across him. The best spot to look at is the location of his crashed ship, which we’ve marked on the map below.

How to kill Predator in Fortnite

If you’ve seen the 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger classic, then you’ll know why The Predator is so difficult to defeat. He comes with unmatched agility that lets him dart between the trees and surroundings quickly.

You’ll also face some difficulties due to the enemy’s Cloaking Device that allows him to completely camouflage himself. This means that you’ll have an even harder time tracking his movements until he appears right next to you.

Another obstacle comes in the form of the players that you’ll be competing against to complete this quest and unlock the skin. However, you can use this to your advantage by letting them do half of the work for you.

Here’s the best way to defeat The Predator in Fortnite:

  1. Jump from the Battle Bus and land in Stealthy Stronghold.
  2. Collect the best weapons you can find.
  3. Head to the Predator’s location on the left-hand side of the POI.
  4. Watch the other players damage the alien from a distance.
  5. Once he’s been weakened, kill him with close-range and medium-distance weapons.

That sums up everything you need to do in order to defeat The Predator. Just hang back, and watch the other players chip away at his health from a distance until your opportunity opens up to land the final blows.

You can make things even easier on yourself by getting help from your friends, so drop into Stealthy Stronghold as part of a Trio or Squad. Once the enemy has been dealt with, you can loot the Cloaking Device from his body.

In addition to the cloak, you will also unlock The Predator skin that you’ll need to wear to tackle the other Jungle Hunter Quests. It looks extremely cool, and you’d better get your hands on it as soon as you can.

How to go invisible with Fortnite’s Predator Cloak Device

Hide from your opponents with Predator’s Cloak Device and become invisible. Learn how to use and what it does in Fortnite Season 5.

fortnite season 5 predator cloak device

The legendary extra-terrestrial species Predator has arrived in Fortnite Season 5. He’s not come alone though as he’s brought with him a Cloak Device that players can use for invisibility.

Fortnite has offered varying degrees of invisibility in its game before. Examples include the bush that players could equip, outfits that blended in with the environment, and most recently salt that you could burrow around in underground.

However, these faux attempts at full concealment are nothing compared to Predator’s new Cloak Device. If players are able to obtain it, then they have a bonafide method of becoming practically see-through.

Fortnite Season 5 Predator Cloak Device

For a piece of sophisticated technology from a foreign part of the universe, Predator’s alien technology is surprisingly accessible to all.

Once you have your hands on the Cloak Device, all you need to do is simply activate the item, and you’ll instantly turn invisible. It should be noted that your outline can still be faintly seen. But from a distance, you are a mere blur to the naked eye.

The item possess the following stats:

  • Cooldown: 30 seconds
  • Duration: 30 seconds
  • Exit Duration: 1 second
  • Expire Alert: last 5 seconds
  • NPC can go transparent too for 15 sec & 30 sec cooldown

Here’s the device in action thanks to HYPEX.

If you draw a weapon then your cloaking phase will be interrupted immediately. The Cloak is designed to allow you to escape from an enemy or provide a brief respite.

Predator’s Cloak Device seems to provide a bit more privacy than the Shadow Stones did – a previous item in Fortnite that offered some invisibility. However, they proved to be very buggy and never maintained a constant spot in Fortnite due to this.

There is plenty more Predator content to come and we’ve been able to see all the leaked Predator cosmetics that are scheduled for Fortnite.

Stay tuned for more information on Predator and future characters being added to Season 5.

Leaked Predator cosmetics after Fortnite 15.21 patch

The Predator has arrived in Fortnite Season 5, and leakers have discovered all the cosmetic items coming with the extra-terrestrial hunter.

Published

With the Fortnite v15.21 update comes the Predator, ready to hunt down the island’s best warriors, and leakers have revealed all the cosmetics coming with it.

As Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 progresses, more and more characters from pop culture are added to the popular battle royale. We’ve seen Star Wars’ Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, and characters from AMC’s The Walking Dead. Now, the Predator, the titular alien warrior from the classic 1980’s action movie has come to Fortnite Season 5.

A Predator crossover in the Stealthy Stronghold POI was spotted by an eagle-eyed player with familiar sights from the movies showing up. And for the past week, Predator’s ship has been parked in the POI, all-but confirming the extra-terrestrial hunter’s arrival.

We now know that Predator has come to join Jonesy’s ragtag team of hunters defending the Zero Point, and will be unlocked as the secret skin in Season 5’s Battle Pass.

All Fortnite Predator cosmetics leaked

Leakers had previously discovered the skin in the game files, but with the 15.21 update, we can now see everything coming alongside the alien hunter.

As revealed by Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi, there will be several cosmetic items coming with the ‘Jungle Hunter’ set. These include a back bling, weapon wrap, and harvesting tool.

The Predator’s Vautja Wristblades will be coming as a Mythic item, dealing extra damage to the environment and players. As it’s also included in the cosmetics leak, it’s possible that there will be a regular harvesting tool version of these blades, too.

The weapon wrap has a Predator-themed digital design, with ‘Reactive.WeaponFire’ being included in the description. It’s likely this wrap will apply further cosmetic changes to your guns.

Predator’s back bling is an alien skull taken as a trophy by the hunter, with it being described as a “grim keepsake from a far-off world.”

Along with Predator comes new Mythic items, the Predator Claw and Cloaking Device.

Stalk your prey by becoming invisible with the Predator’s Cloaking Device, but be mindful that the effect will be removed by swapping weapons or swimming. Then after successfully hunting your target, take them out with the Predator Claw.
