Fortnite Chapter 2 The End Live Event Leaks

​There are many theories and rumors about the upcoming live event. Epic has requested leakers not to leak Fortnite Chapter 3, or the End live event details to allow for excitement and thrill. Recently, many spotted an alleged Fortnite Chapter 3 Trailer, which shows the island flipping upside down.

Fort Guava, the fort which was in the making for some time now, has finally reached its completion and as per prominent Fortnite leaker HYPEX, the fort is fitted with some sort of nuclear rockets on the roof. The rockets might be used against the Cube Queen during the final battle or used to destroy the Cubes scattered all around the island.

Apart from this, leakers have also pointed out that the Foundation could make a return as well. Donald Mustard has also hinted that Midas is still well and alive and “is great, and not dead.” So it is possible that we might see him during the live event too. There are even talks that the downtime might be around for three days, so if that really happens, it will be interesting to see what triggers such an event.

Leakers have also spotted encrypted files that could probably be for the Fortnite Chapter 2 live event. As per iFireMonkey one might be for the live event playlist file, while the second for the main event and the last file for what comes after the event.

Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
