Fortnite: Battle Royale – the game that took the world by storm, caused Epic Games to be threatened by lawsuits from the PUBG developers, and praised by the creators of PUBG to expand the royal battle genre, stands for something really weird.
Fortnite players notice that their controllers vibrate randomly when nothing "vibrant" happens, and there is a comet in the sky … a comet that seems to be approaching from day to day.
Of course, Fortnite players are going crazy on Reddit, coming up with all sorts of explanations for the comet and the vibrations. So we've scoured the Fortnite subreddit for clues about what's going on in that map, and these are some of the conclusions they've come to. Some are rather far-fetched, some are convincing and one, in particular, simply terrifying.
X marks the point?
The vibrations are confusing everyone, and a Redditor went ahead and marked all the positions where the vibrations were happening … it turns out he makes an "X" surrounded by two "T's" … according to the Redditor, this implies that the comet will hit the Tilted Towers section of the map. A theory that by far the most popular among Fortnite enthusiasts.
An SOS from the Towers
Another player thought differently about the vibrations and realized that there were two types of vibrations, a short vibration for about half a second and a long vibration for about 1.5 seconds – it looks like a morse code, right? So he converted the vibrations into Morse code and this is what he invented:
… – … / – .. / … .. / … .- .– – ..
Converted to normal text, reads SOS / D / 5/418
According to the Redditor, D5 the exact grid in which Tilted Towers is located, and 418 could mean April 2018 or April 18. It seems that Tilted Towers sends an SOS to the entire map.
What just bizarre:
Another Redditor, well, went into a full search mode and came up with what can be called a bizarre explanation of why the "comet" hit Tilted Towers, most likely on April 18th. Includes the history of Poland, game developers, and much more. I would advise you to give comments a good read on Reddit.
My friend solves Tilted Towers Conspiracy from r / FortNiteBR
Everything suspects us and could turn into a twisted April Fools joke from the developer. However, even more wary is the silence of Epic Games on the whole issue. Kotaku reached the study for clarification and was treated with a single image – that of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos – the sensation of the meme for all that concerned conspiracy theories.
