#GamingBytes: Five exciting Easter Eggs in Fortnite Season 5
An Easter egg is an intentionally hidden joke or message in a film or video game. Epic's Fortnite always includes in-game clues that hint at the season's ending or the new season's story. Season 5 sees some major changes in the map and the Fortnite world, with rifts, opening up. Read to know about the five most exciting Easter eggs in Fortnite Season 5.
The clues tie in to Fortnite Season 5's theme
Fortnite Season 5 has the theme 'when worlds collide' and the game shows various objects from the real world appearing in the Fortnite world. Interestingly, Epic Games took the Durr Burger out of the game world and placed it in the California desert!
Where is the Durr Burger going ?
The Durr Burger sign in Greasy Grove disappeared in a rift at the end of Season 4. To show 'worlds colliding', Epic Games smartly placed a Durr Burger in the California desert. However, in Season 5, the burger is back in the game. It can now be found at a hill past Pleasant Park but the tongue has a Season 5 themed graffiti.
Fare thee well, Tomato head
As most players know, the Tomato Town has been replaced by Tomato Temple. However, before that, the rift had taken away the beloved mascot Tomato head. Players could, nonetheless, land on the roof of the pizzeria to see a sign that said goodbye. It had the picture of a tomato next to it. This probably means the mascot will not be returning anytime soon.
Will giants walk the Earth again?
Fortnite had teased dinosaurs previously in-game. Players, once, found a dinosaur paw print on the map. However, all excitement was unfounded as it was revealed that the location was just a movie studio. Season 5, however, makes an overt reference to dinosaurs. Players can find T-Rex, Diplodocus and Triceratops statues in Paradise Palms. Notably, these statues can be broken down for resources.
Bringing ancient history into the game
Moai heads have also appeared in the Fortnite map. They were originally carved by the Rapa Nui people of Polynesia. While there are seven such monolithic structures in the map, players can always look for them as they usually have up to three loot chests. Weirdly, one of the heads looks like Tim Lockwood from 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs'.
A mad mashup of things
The worlds collide theme has been taken seriously by Fortnite and plenty of things from out of time have appeared in the Fortnite world. One of them is a new point of interest- a Viking village south-east of Snobby Shores. It even has a Viking ship. The other interesting addition is a Wild West stagecoach that can be found in the new desert area.
