Wild Fortnite Season 2 theory: Fortnite X MF DOOM

Could Fortnite be collaborating with the rap game’s biggest villain, MF DOOM, in Season 2?



Could Fortnite be collaborating with the rap game’s biggest villain, MF DOOM, in Season 2?

This is, admittedly, a far-out theory for Fortnite Season 2, but there is a bit of evidence and history to back it up. Any theory is worth exploring as we wait for Season 2 to kick off on February 20 – especially if you happen to be a Fortnite player and MF Doom fan.

As a massive MF Doom fan, myself, he was the first thing to pop into my head when I saw one of the recent Fortnite Season 2 teasers. We see a large, bald man – one whose face was previously blurred – with a Chaos Agent mask over his face.

We also see the word “henchmen” scattered about in different languages, along with a map that appears to show the headquarters of the character.

Epic Games

There are two ways to look at this teaser with the “henchmen” tag. Either, the person in the image is one of the henchmen or the Chaos Agent and others are henchmen for the real master. For our purposes, let’s assume that he’s a villain and that the truth is the former statement.

The second clue from this teaser is the trail of M’s on the righthand side of the image. This is, of course, the first letter in MF Doom’s name. It also happens to be the beginning of his most popular album, ‘Mm.. Food.’

The most recent teaser – at the time of writing – also hints at a hero/villain theme. Doom is a notorious villain, of course.

For those unaware of the genius that is Daniel Dumile, the man behind the mask, he’s often described as, “your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper.”

Unlike a lot of MCs, Doom the rapper and Dumile the man are not the same person. Doom is only the most popular character in Dumile’s universe, which also features characters like Viktor Vaughn and King Geedorah. Dumile is the writer and his personas are his characters.

Doom borrows heavily from film, TV, novels, and comic books. His most popular characters are styled after Dr. Doom from the Marvel Universe (real name: Victor Von Doom) and King Ghidorah from Godzilla. His songs are littered with samples of old superhero cartoons. In other words, he’s a perfect candidate to want to collaborate with a video game studio.

Now that we’ve finished our brief history lesson on MF Doom, let’s talk about why this collaboration might be possible. First of all, Epic began adding “real” songs to Fortnite in Chapter 2.

All Fortnite players noticed the inclusion of Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up,’ but people seem to forget that the first “real” song added to Fortnite was ‘Ruckus’ by Konata Small – the Chapter 2 intro song that’s also available as an emote.

So, we have a precedent for Epic adding “real” music to Fortnite. What does that have to do with Doom?

Well, as it would happen, MF Doom made an entirely-clean album for Adult Swim in 2005. He worked with producer Danger Mouse to release ‘The Mouse and the Mask’ under the ‘Danger Doom’ alias. He even recorded several promotions for the station and hosted a Christmas Eve special in 2006.

Doom hasn’t released any new music since his last collaboration with Czarface in 2018. He’s been sporadically active since the beginning of his career, with no signs of hanging it up anytime soon. Could his next album be dedicated to one of the biggest video games in history?

I admit that this theory is a stretch. Doom has been the king of underground rap for two decades. His collaboration with Adult Swim made sense – both he and the channel are counter-culture icons. Fortnite might be too mainstream for him. What’s more, most Fortnite players probably have no idea who he is.

Is Doom a gamer? I have no idea. He’s a self-described “nerd,” and makes references to old-school games in his lyrics, but it’s unclear if he keeps up with the current trends. There’s an Epic account named ‘MF DOOM’ with Fortnite statistics, but that could be anyone. Apart from that, there’s no connection.

I think it would be amazing for Epic to add the Vaudville Villain to Fortnite as the puppetmaster – pulling the strings of all of our favorite characters.

Is it likely? Absolutely not. It’s just a fun theory to explore while we wait for Season 2.

How to get the Dish Destroyer pickaxe in Fortnite Season 3

Another exclusive pickaxe arrives to Fortnite in Season 3 and it sure looks quite different. Here’s how you can get it.



Dish Destroyer Pickaxe in Fortnite

The Dish Destroyer pickaxe is another free cosmetic you can get in Chapter 3 Season 3 if you haven’t already. Here’s how to get the pickaxe right into your locker.

Fortnite players sure love freebies that the developers give them away each season. From a free Refer-A-Friend skin to a slurpy back bling that you can get upon completing quests, players have faithfully completed every task that Epic has asked them to claim the free reward.

However, over the course of several seasons now, getting these freebies is starting to feel too much work to some players. Epic continues to add away free content, but players are asked to put in the work in order to claim these rewards.

This time around, there’s a new item on the block, The Dish Destroyer Pickaxe, which you can get in Fortnite now by doing a few simple steps. Here’s how you can get it in Season 3.

Get the Dish Destroyer Pickaxe in Fortnite now

Nvidia’s cloud gaming platform GeForce Now was launched earlier this year when players were able to stream Fortnite on any device if they were a member of the service. This also allowed iOS users to stream the game on their phones despite the Apple vs. Epic lawsuit.

In a recent tweet, Nvidia announced that Fortnite players will be able to redeem a free Dish Destroyer Pickaxe if they stream Fortnite on their GeForce Now enabled devices until August 4, 2022. Players who are members of the exclusive service will only be able to redeem this for free in-game.

However, in another announcement, Epic told its player base that the pickaxe is not exclusive to GeForce Now but will also be available in the Item Shop at a later date. This means that those who aren’t able to redeem the free pickaxe using their GeForce Now memberships will have a chance to buy it using V-Bucks in the Item Shop.

The cost of the pickaxe has not been revealed as of yet as players believe that it will be released once the limited window of August 4 for GeForce Now members have expired. As soon as we get any news on its Item Shop release, we’ll be sure to update this article.

GeForce Now players have had the perks of free rewards ever since the service allowed players to experience the thrill of Fortnite anywhere on their devices. Falling in line is XCloud’s gaming service which has become extremely popular amongst Xbox players.

Fortnite players call on Epic Games to fix Loot Chests bug in Season 3

As the latest Fortnite Season 3 update brought players a No Sweat Summer, it left a weird bug in the game where players are getting empty loot chests. Here’s the latest on that.



Loot Chests in Fortnite

Fortnite players have finally given up on the game due to its never-ending glitches and bugs that affect their overall gameplay experience. The latest glitch in the game is teleporting chest loot to a different location, and it’s getting pretty annoying for players.

Player feedback is one of the many things Epic takes very seriously that it aims to fix in every major weekly update or minor hotfixes from time to time. Often there are times when these bugs can get pretty annoying as they affect the overall gameplay experience for the player.

Fortnite players have seen bugs ranging from being stuck under the map or taking fall damage after jumping off a launch pad. From pros to content creators, each one of them took to social media to call on the developers to “fix the game”.

However, a recent update, v21.30, left a bug that has tested the patience of every Fortnite player active this season – potentially the most annoying Fortnite bug of all time. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Fortnite bug teleports chests loots to other locations

A strange Fortnite bug that is going viral right now on social media is the Loot Chests bug. It all began when Epic added the update v21.30 and introduced players to this year’s summer event, No Sweat Summer.

The update also saw the addition of Prime Shotgun which is considered to be the best shotgun in Chapter 3. While all the additions are fascinating and exciting to the players, the bug the update left in the game is still haunting players who are failing to win a game like they used to.

The bug, as shown in the clip above, teleports the chest loot to a nearby location outside if a player opens a chest box inside a building. This is pretty annoying as it doesn’t let the player farm loot fast as they usually would while landing on a hot drop.

Players have already started uploading their clips of the loot chest bug and are calling out the game to come out and fix this issue. This bug also creates double the work for those players who like to play a fast-paced Battle Royale match.

Joining in the conversation are a few FNCS players who feel that this bug might cost them several games where they would end up losing on a major competitive level. The entire community has joined hands together to ask the developers to fix the game at the earliest.

While Fortnite has not addressed this issue on their social media handles or on the Trello board could also mean that players in higher ping regions might be the only ones experiencing the bug. However, the player base is still keeping their hopes high to get these issues fixed as soon as possible.

As bugs and glitches continue to add to several issues Fortnite is filled with, events like No Sweat Summer keep the community excited for more in-game content and freebies that they can get. The challenges for No Sweat Summer are live in-game now and players can redeem their share of rewards upon completing them.

Fortnite introduces the new Prime Shotgun in update v21.30

Prime Shotgun is the latest game breaking weapon that has been added to Fortnite in v21.30. Here’s all about the new shotgun.



Prime Shotgun in Fortnite

Prime Shotgun is another addition to Fortnite this season in terms of weaponry that has been added to the game. Here is all about the latest shotgun that was introduced in v21.30 and what players think of it.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has been a joyride for both OG and new players alike. The new mechanics, the reality bloom spreading everywhere, and the addition of new weapons to the game have kept the community satisfied so far.

However, during the beginning of Chapter 3, the shotgun meta was deemed to be the worst shotguns the game had added to the game. The Striker Pump, Ranger, and Auto Shotguns were weapons that players had deemed incompetent to other shotguns in Fortnite.

Much so, even the newly released Two Shot Shotgun couldn’t impress the players with its faster fire rate and damage. So, Epic decided to throw a new shotgun into the mix to seek player reactions and improve the messed-up shotguns in-game.

Prime Shotgun is the new community favorite shotgun in Fortnite

Prime Shotgun was added in the latest update v21.30 to the unvaulted weapons arsenal in Fortnite. The shotguns were the second one introduced to the player base apart from the Two-Shot shotgun.

It holds 4 bullets in a clip and promises heavy damage on the first shot fired from a fully loaded clip. The 3 shots that follow inflict lower damage than that of the first one.

When a player reloads the shotgun, 3 blue dots appear on the gun with the red dot being the first shot being loaded. This brings back the memories of the infamous “One Shot Meta” from the OG days when the community used to perform using a Pump Shotgun.

Pros like NickEh30 sang high praise of the Prime Shotgun as the weapon contains elements of the OG pump in terms of range, accuracy, and firepower. Other pros like SypherPK & Ninja also commented their thoughts on the gun which were highly positive.
