If you thought Doctor Slone’s latest mission sounded suspicious in the grand finale of Fortnite Operation: Sky Fire, then you were right! She overtook you and left you to perish with the mothership, but now players face an even greater threat: cubes. No one knows what the Cubes are up to, but if one thing is for sure, they are not up to anything good!
Fortunately, we have new information that will prove to be very useful in saving the island. There is no time to waste, so get started in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 now!
“The Sideways” is a dark, monster-filled reality where gravity is very low and the building is hampered. These cubes not only propagate corruption, but they also propagate portals to this mysterious world, known as “side anomalies”, and cause The Sideways to bleed into our world. Along with this, certain Points of Interest (POIs) will also be changed by The Sideways every match – these changed areas are called side areas. To fight these Sideways monsters, players must fortify themselves with Sideways weapons such as the Sideways Rifle and the Sideways Minigun.
The Cubes are everywhere and with them comes the corruption, which seems to be concentrated near the wreckage of the Mothership. Fortunately, some of the ship’s technologies still work, so players will be able to use it to their advantage. Shadowstones, which can be found scattered among the rubble, will also come in handy as they allow players to temporarily become a shadow-like apparition.
Cubes are no joke, so we encourage players to join the war effort and help lead it! Players will need to get together, donate bars to turret station construction sites, and decide which new weapons to develop and unlock. Speaking of weapons, the fearless leader of the war effort, JB Chimpanski, is bringing home a few favorite weapons, including the Automatic Sniper Rifle and Harpoon Gun.
