The Fortnite Cube, which has been rolling around the map for the last several weeks, has finally come to what looks like its final resting place: inside of Loot Lake. No one really knows why or what any of it means but its melted in there and now the lake is one giant purple bounce pad.
Weeks ago, a giant purple rift in the sky started shooting out lightning and destroying cacti. The final strike left behind a massive purple cube in the middle of the desert. Covered in strange glowing symbols, the cube reacted differently depending on how players interacted with it. A few weeks after that, the cube suddenly began moving on its own and rolling across the map. It finally ended up splashing into Loot Lake, where it promptly melted and filled the once pristine water with a mysterious purple goo. It’s anyone’s guess as to what’s actually happening in Fortnite right now. Check out the recap below.
As Fortnite fans who have been following the path of the Cube know, Loot Lake always seemed like the destination, but I’m not sure that anyone expected it to end up like this. As long as the Cube was in the regular game world, it had a few interesting effects on players. For one thing, if you shot it, the Cube would push you away and damage you; if you stood close, it would regenerate your shields; and, most importantly, if you jumped on it the Cube would bounce you up into the air. While most of these properties left the Cube when it covered/was absorbed into Loot Lake, the bounciness is certainly still there.
It looks like Season 6 has just got a bunch of new mechanics. RIP Loot Lake.
