Season 10, also referred to as Season X, with the slogan “Out of Time“, of Fortnite: Battle Royale started on August 1st, 2019, and ended on October 13th, 2019.

The theme is time, everything from Season 1 to this season.

It was the last season of Chapter 1.

Previously, in Fortnite...

In Season 8, Polar Peak started cracking due to the volcano’s impact to it. In Season 9, we saw an eye of a monster appear in its interior. But during downtime for an update, the monster got out of Polar Peak, removing its main attraction, the castle, leaving footprints and even destroying some houses while swimming around the island. Afterwards a robot (later named the Mecha) is being constructed in Pressure Plant leading up to the end-of-the-season event which is hinted by certain holographic public service announcements and the countdown on top of the sky platforms. Not much of the event is relevant to this season except for, at one time, the Mecha opening the Loot Lake vault and takes the Zero Point sphere to get some more power. For more information, look at The Final Showdown. Afterwards the Zero Point sphere starts destabilizing throughout Season 9’s remaining time. According to the Season 10 / X trailer, only Jonesy experienced the explosion of the The Zero Point at Loot Lake exploded, slowly disorienting the time stream of the island.

How did it start?

The story continues from the storyline that started in Season 3.

This explosion took Jonesy to a recap of the storyline in its entirety, including the Battle Bus, the rocket launcher, the Volcano and its meteors, Fishstick being trained by Y0ND3R, Kevin the cube hit by the butterfly, the birthday gift box from the birthday events, a Christmas tree, Eternal Voyager and Sparkle Supreme, the radio from Season 5, a Drift-created Durrr Burger, the B.R.U.T.E., the bass fish, the desert motel sign, a Team Monster sticker, the bunker's turntables from Season 9, the Durrr Burger arcade game, and finally Peely, who has his eye on him after the smoothie incident. There's also the Dragoncrest back bling next to Jonesy. Straightly after that, Jonesy goes back to the island. Jonesy appeared near the returning Dusty Depot seeing the meteor about to hit it back in between Seasons 3 and 4. But this time, the meteor froze for the sake of the season and exploring what’s inside (what’s first seen in the S10 / X Battle Pass trailer). Some locations from Season 9 are still there because the meteor came from the sphere (unlike rumors that we are going back to any of the OG seasons). Season 10 / X officially started at this point.

The Season X Storyline

The Visitor’s capsule from Season 4 can be seen in the meteor, which is actually opened, thus letting him escape. He uses Dusty Depot to make Rift Beacons to make Rift Zones that can alter some POIs. To know more about the map changes, go down to take a look at it. Meanwhile, the meteor is moving slowly to where it exploded originally in Season 4 to make Dusty Divot. On Week 7, Dusty Depot’s white warehouse became a storage for a new rocket for this season‘s main event. On September 23, 2019, the rocket is finished and it’s ready for launch at the end of the season.

The End (or is it?)

The End is referred as the launching of the second rocket in Fortnite. It started with, of course, the rocket launch in Dusty Depot. It continued to launch until it created a new in the sky. It then disappeared, the rifts that appeared on top of the Rift Zones appeared to be cracking some more. Then the rocket appears in one of the rifts and move down to the island and made a rift. Then more rockets appear on the rifts (which appear to be from The Seven), and all moved along the island, until one rocket made a rift while the others joined. Then they made a rift behind the meteor to make another rift in front of it, this is to make a loop for the meteor to move to the rift. Then a laser is pointing at the Zero Point sphere and gets inside while the players are knocked back. Then the rockets appear with the meteor moving straight down to the sphere. The rockets escape the island while the meteor squishes the sphere-of-influence made by the Zero Point and finally, destroys the Zero Point sphere. Everyone is knocked back again and sucked into the Zero Point sphere, along with the island, and even the game. Even the lobby can experience being sucked into the sphere, causing The Blackout / Black Hole. It ended with a black hole and an "Exit" button on PC, a "Return to Party Hub" button on mobile, or no buttons on console, and it stayed like that for 2 days until Chapter 2: Season 1 started.

The Black Hole

During those 2 days, signing-in to the game will result in a cutscene which ends the same way as the event, all leading to the same black hole. You can’t play Battle Royale, Save The World, and Creative until Chapter 2 started. The black hole is just a single element that made players speculating about Chapter 2’s start date and the end (like literally) of Fortnite. Numbers started to appear secretly around the black hole. Taking those numbers and matching them with the words in the 6 Visitor tapes will result with a message.

Map Changes

As said above, Dusty Depot came back along with the meteor moments before hitting it in Season 4. The long slipstream is removed along with all of the Sky Platforms. Inside the meteor is The Visitor’s capsule originally found during Season 4, which is actaully opened for him to escape. He now uses Dusty Depot to create Rift Beacons to make Rift Zones that can alter some POIs into something else.

The first, which is seen in the Season X Trailer and the leaks, is Tilted Town (from Neo Tilted). Tilted Town is a western-style location that restricts building and breaking to match the Western theme. As the rift beacon disappears, the Neo Tilted slipstream vanished wholly from the island.

The second brings back Retail Row (from Mega Mall), but this time, with zombies. The Mega Mall slipstream is also removed.

The third Rift Beacon is placed in the Rec Center (between Snobby and Tilted), but the Rift Beacon exploded, leaving a giant crater alongside Glitched Consumables, which can turn into any consumable in Fortnite’s history.

The fourth Rift Beacon is placed near the Trunk ‘N’ Oasis gas station in the desert. For the release of Borderlands 3, the Rift Zone created Pandora from the game as part of a collaboration with Mayhem. Pandora gives shield after 4 seconds of not taking damage. Pandora left the Battle Royale Island on September 10. Afterwards, the places that were in the Rift Zone before are brought back.

The fifth Rift Beacon is placed on Fatal Fields and brought the return of the Kevin Floating Island, but this time, the Motel is mixed with the OG Loot Lake house. Like in Season 6, the Floating Island will go around the map.

The sixth and seventh Rift Beacons were placed in the frozen Greasy Grove and in Paradise Palms. Greasy Grove returned by removing the ice that covered it. This time, at certain times, all players in Greasy Grove will dance the Taco Time emote while Spicy Tacos rain from the sky, Once eaten, you move faster for 20 seconds, and while dancing, you regenerate 20 health per second. You also regenerate 10 health and shield. In the other hand, Paradise Palms turned into Moisty Palms. While crouching, players can turn into a prop.

On Week 7, a hole is built in Dusty Depot’s floor and wall for storage of a new version of the rocket. This will become the basis for this season’s main event. The rocket was built by The Scientist.

The eighth Rift Beacon was placed at Tilted Town and turned it into Gotham City during Batman’s 80th anniversary. Gotham City gave everyone unlimited glider redeploys.

On September 23, 2019, the rocket was complete and is set to launch at the end of the season.

The ninth and final Rift Beacon is placed in some random location southeast of Junk Junction, in the Race Track. It turned into Starry Suburbs, where shooting stars appear from the sky that can give you some good loot! Starry Suburbs is the fixed version of the ruined neighborhood north of Pleasant Park.

On October 5th, 2019, the countdown timer for The End event has appeared on the rocket. The timer reached 0 on October 13, 2019 at 2pm ET.

At the end of the event, the island has been sucked into the In-Between and exploded, creating a black hole. 2 days have to pass by until Chapter 2 begins.

Visitor Tapes

  • "What the Seven of us are attempting is very risky. I suspect They are not the only ones watching. But it must be done or we lose the Bridge forever."
  • "I speculate that no one calculated the formation of the Island. That interdimensional matter collisions would resolve rather than push. Now that I witness it first hand, it’s obvious that Pinching alone made it inevitable."
  • "When I hear this, again, will it help me remember? Or once Looped will I be just as muted as the others? No matter - it seems the lengthy precautions worked."
  • "The (unintelligible) Theorem was a success! I... us... you arrived outside of the loop at the exact moment of expansion. This effectively paused the singularity, giving us time to create the devices needed to synchronize the Junction."
  • "What I didn’t factor was that the only way to trigger the device was from within the Loop itself. Thus this hasty and primitive recording. And why now you... I find myself Looped."
  • "Activate the beacon at precisely the moment this timer reaches nothing. The Zero Point must be contained once more. If They are correct, it will be the end."

Teasers

Teaser #1 for Season 10 was released on July 28th, 2019 at 16:29 ET, during the Fortnite World Cup. That was the first teaser of Season 10 and includes the caption: "Think Back. 8.1.2019" hinting to old locations returning. The first teaser showed off Dusty Depot, the second showed off the B.R.U.T.E., the third showed Eternal Voyager and Catalyst, and the fourth is a video teaser showing the Zero Point explosion (the first seconds of the Season 10 / X trailer).
