Cube Monster in Fortnite

One of the new changes in Fortnite Season 8 is the new Sideways dimension that’s filled with monsters. Here’s how you can enter it and access the new Sideways Weapons to complete the Cube Queen Quests.

Fortnite Season 8 is in full swing, and there are some fun new additions in the game like the Carnage skin. The new season also brought Kevin the Cube back to the battle royale, which has now formed The Convergence in the middle of the map.

Along with The Convergence came The Cube Queen, the Secret Battle Pass skin for Season 8. She can now be unlocked after the 18.30 update, where players must enter The Sideways and collect Sideways Weapons to complete her Quests.

Here’s everything you need to know about entering The Sideways and collecting Sideways Weapons.

How to enter The Sideways in Fortnite

Fortnite Season 8’s Sideways will be marked as rifts on your map. Once you go near, it will turn into a huge orange bubble marked by a glowing circle on your map. Once you get close to the bubble, you’ll be pulled in.

In The Sideways, players will be able to battle new monsters added to the game, who will drop new and powerful weapons to give you even more firepower against your opponents.

Once you’re in there, you’ll need to battle waves of Cube Monsters in a new dimension where gravity is low, and you’ll not have access to the game’s standard building mechanic.

Opening chests inside Fortnite Season 8’s The Sideways will grant you all of the Sideways Weapons.

There are at least three new weapons that you can get your hands on in this dimension: The Sideways Rifle, Minigun, and Scythe. Plus, a Sideways Lightblade has also been leaked.

You can use these to deal bonus damage through their superpowered state, which is perfect for completing the Cube Queen Quests.

Sideways Rifle

The Sideways Rifle can be found inside Sideways Chests. Just open enough chests and you’ll eventually get your hands on it.

This Rifle is perfect for players who prefer long-range combat. The Epic version of this weapon can dish out 32 damage with a fire rate of 3.5 and a reload time of 2.66.

Additionally, the gun has a bonus Perk where it can deal extra damage to foes while it’s hot. This makes it an ideal choice for causing mayhem the next time you’re fighting for your life in The Sideways.

Sideways Minigun

Again, the Sideways Minigun is found through opening Sideways Chests. Make sure to stay clear of other players going for them, and you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding one.

As with The Sideways Rifle, this weapon also has a bonus perk. Once it gets heated, the fire rate increases so that you can shoot bullets much faster at your opponents.

Sideways Scythe

And the final weapon you need for the Cube Queen Quests, the Sideways Scythe, is also found in Sideways Chests.

You’ll need to deal 150 damage opponents with the Scythe for the Cube Queen Quests, but it’s also an extremely effective tool for taking down Cube Monsters.


That covers everything you need to know about The Sideways in Fortnite Season 8. With the new update underway, we expect to see many other cool new additions to the battle royale.
