At this point in time, you’ve likely heard just about every crazed theory about the Season 4 update to Fortnite. The developers at Epic Games did a great job protecting what the update would unveil and even now, days after it has been released, fans are still finding crazy new additions to the title. While we’ve already seen people talk at length about dinosaur footprints and comets destroying Dusty Depot, we’ve seen very little fanfare regarding the secret underground bases that are now littering the massive island that players battle to the death on. Are you ready to take the fight underground?
As it turns out, the destruction of Dusty Depot was far from the only map change that we ended up getting. Of course, we already talked about the dinosaur footprint, but that is surprisingly one of the least surprising new additions. We’re talking more specifically about the underground layers that are now scattered throughout the map. If you can pull yourself away from Dusty Divor or the new Risky Reels, you might find something truly special.
During your next game, head southeast of the Lonely Lodge. You’ll find a house where you can get up onto the roof. You’ll find a letter in here but more importantly, you’ll find a path to the underground. Dig your way through the bottom level of the floor and you’ll drop into an underground base. Inside of the base, you’ll find all manner of weird things including security systems, lockers, logos of some mysterious new group, and even a hidden hole tucked away behind a staircase (where all gamers know to look).
Once you’re done in the underground base near the Lonely Lodge, you can make your way to Snobby Shores. Head to the house on the mountaintop and you’ll end up finding a new missile silo. Inside of the silo, well, you’ll just have to see it to believe it. There are clues and references to an entirely new subplot to the Fortnite universe and we suggest seeing it for yourself before allowing text to ruin the surprise.
