Fortnite dev teases GI Joe crossover for Season 5

G.I Joe could be the next addition coming to Fortnite Season 5’s already star-studded line-up thanks to a hint from an Epic employee.

Fortnite fans have already been treated to a smorgasbord of Hollywood and gaming royalty in Fortnite Season 5. A recent Tweet from an Epic Games dev has suggested that this shows no signs of slowing with G.I Joe possibly next in line.

The Season of the bounty hunter has proven to be fruitful for Fortnite Season 5 with the game featuring a whole host of surprising and unexpected names. It was difficult to see how the tyranny of Galactus and the fight of the superheroes could be topped, but Epic Games has found a way to outdo themselves.

This season we’ve seen the likes of Kratos, The Terminator, Predator, and there are even more possible leaks with everyone’s favorite fighting heroine Lara Croft rumored too. But now one of the world’s favorite action hero teams could be inbound.

Donald Mustard – Chief Creative Officer at Epic Games – recently posted a Tweet that appeared to drop several hints towards the inclusion of G.I Joe in Fortnite.

The first clue that fans picked up on was the comic that he appears to be reading. One perceptive person was able to identify the drawings and frames from the comic book and confirm that they are from G.I Joe 21 – The Silent Issue!

Our next hint can be found on Donald’s arm as he bears a tattoo that clearly replicates the Arashikage Clan logo. They are a Japanese Ninja clan that can be found in the G.I Joe universe. Also, Donald Mustard has even changed his location to “Arashikage Clan” as well.

The third and final point that seems to substantiate the G.I Joe rumor is that Fortnite has posted a Reality Log with the Target Description: Ninja Master. This once again seems to refer to the Arashikage clan.

Furthermore, “Knowing is half the battle” is a direct G.I Joe reference.

Either the Fortnite dev has suddenly been overcome by G.I Joe nostalgia or this all points to G.I Joe arriving in Fortnite at some point.

Despite the official Reality Log, we will have to wait until it’s officially confirmed by Epic Games, and will obviously treat this as a rumor for the time being.

Many of these challenges are fairly straightforward, and you can get them done in a single match. You’ll first need to collect Sideways weapons like the Sideways Rifle and Minigun from chests and ground loot on the map.

You can then use them to dish out damage to enemies, and firing them continuously for eight seconds will cause the weapons to become overheated, completing another Sideways Showdown Week Quest.

Upgrade benches can be found at different locations across the Fortnite map, and you can visit any one of them to upgrade your weapon. We’ll be sure to cover where you can find these in a separate guide.

Will Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 have a live event finale?

According to data miners following the v20.40 update, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Data miners have discovered strings that appear to prove there will be a season-ending live event finale. Leaker FNBRintel has discovered a ton of strings for the event, which include an in-game countdown and a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

Another leaker, FortTory, has also said that there will be a pre-event lobby where “we can expect some animations and sequences” before the main event. However, they won’t say anything more for now.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event should go live on the last day of the season, which is set to be on June 3.

Once the event concludes, there’s set to be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” There’s no way of knowing how long the downtime will last at the time of writing, though.
