Earlier at this time, Fortnite gamers found that one thing new had appeared on the battle royale’s map. Slightly west of Salty Springs, a bit south of Retail Row, and simply to the east of the island’s desert biome, an excavation web site has proven up – and it’s right down to the gamers to do the digging.
As you possibly can see within the tweet in direction of the underside of this text, the digsite seems to be filled with dust, very similar to any of the mines or quarries unfold across the map. Upon nearer inspection, nonetheless, evidently the entire isn’t filled with earth, however of rocks. And whereas a standard rock may need just a few hundred well being, every one on the excavation web site boasts a complete well being pool of round 500,000,000.
That means that we’re taking a look at a state of affairs much like that provided by the iceberg that appeared in Happy Hamlets throughout Fortnite Season 7. That began out with 5 billion well being, but it surely solely took gamers ten hours to clear it away, revealing an unbreakable bunker much like the one which used to dwell in Wailing Woods.
It’s not clear in the intervening time what number of rocks gamers might want to clear away, or how deep the excavation web site goes. If we’re working round a determine much like the iceberg from final season, we’d solely want ten blocks, however I’d think about we’re in for a shock on a much bigger scale.

Either means, the extra essential query is what we are able to anticipate finding as soon as all of the rocks are cleared away. This may very well be a 3rd bunker, but when so I feel it’d be excessive time for Epic to disclose their grand underground plan to the world.

My guess is that the bunkers, as soon as opened, will hyperlink up with each other, but it surely would possibly take a few days earlier than we uncover what lies beneath. A Reddit thread from earlier at this time stated that on the present charge of digging, gamers will end the job on March 30, however as information spreads, it’s attainable that the excavation web site shall be emptied properly forward of time.
