With Season 4 just around the corner, people have been guessing for weeks what the theme would be and what is going to happen to that comet in the sky. We have rounded up all of these rumors, leaks and what little information we have from Epic Games into one post!
A Reddit user, internetadam, made a post on April 23 that detailed some potential information about Fortnite’s upcoming Season 4 and it’s relation to the comet and it’s new theme – Superheroes.
People refused to believe him, but on April 27th he posted some more information to Reddit regarding the meteor and it’s new intended target:
- The meteor will be hitting Dusty Depot, and NOT Tilted Towers as so many believe. Epic has thought this area of the map has needed an update for a long time.
- The map will always be evolving. The map will be updated WEEKLY in Season 4. Epic feels like they had a wasted opportunity with Tilted Towers going up all at once. They would rather have had bulldozers & a few raising cranes one week, then one building go up the next week, two buildings the following week, etc.
- Moisty Mire will be gone by the end of Season 4.
- The Season 4 Battle Pass is all Supehero-themed. There will be superhero skins and villain skins (at least 2 of each). They aren’t from Marvel or DC, just Epic’s own characters.
That’s right, Titled Towers will be spared by our mighty comet overlord and Dusty Depot will take the damage instead. He goes on to mention a Superhero theme for Season 4 and that the map will be updated weekly. All pretty big changes to the game, but all speculation.
Note: This information is not confirmed and is purely speculation.
Epic Teases Season 4
On April 26th, Epic Games began to post teaser images that included various characters that looked oddly like super heroes. Over the course of 4 days, Epic Games teased a total of 4 images containing 4 seperate characters, for the complete image below:

Epic Games also updated the official Fortnite website to include the teaser image with the phrase “BRACE FOR IMPACT!”.
Dusty Depot Possibly Confirmed
On April 30th, users discovered the teaser image that was leaked by Epic Games seems to include some familiar elements from a specific area of the map.
If you zoom in to the right side of the right-most character, you can see a power line that can be seen near Dusty Depot in the game. There are actually a few of these power lines across the map, but they all concentrate on one area, mainly near Dusty Depot.
As usual, nothing is confirmed by this and it is all pure speculation. However, it is pretty interesting and hard to ignore…
Season 4 Begins Tomorrow!
Epic has announced that Season 4 will begin on May 1st. We will surely know more about Season 4 later today!
Impact is imminent! Downtime for the Season 4 update is scheduled for tomorrow, May 1 at 4:00am Eastern Time (08:00 GMT). ☄️💥
