Fortnite Update 18.30: the Mountain Base
What’s inside the Redacted Bunker? We’ve wondered what lies there for a while, and now we get the chance to see it finally.
The Redacted Bunker is a landmark at the Southeast corner of the map, somewhere near Catty Corner. Thanks to the Fortnite v18.30 update, Doctor Sloane has finally opened the bunker, unveiling a Mountain Base!

Fortnite Update 18.30: New Fortnitemares Skin

Fresh leaks hint at the much-awaited Shadow Midas skin and a brand-new variant of Dusk.
Fortnite Update 18.30: Cube Town Becomes a Pyramid?
Popular tipster HYPEX said that we might see the Cube Town become a Pyramid:
The Cube Town MIGHT turn into a Pyramid slowly (the Pyramid that I talked about last season), because there's a string in the Cube Queen's effects that refers to her as the "Pyramid Tip", and she will also be holding her pickaxe after 18.30 with lightning effects around her!

Such a change might happen due to the Cube Queen’s effects that point to something dubbed Pyrmaid Tip. Epic Games didn’t reveal anything about that, so we better wait for official confirmation!

The upcoming War Effort vote will feature the Boogie Bomb vs. the Combat Shotgun. So, you better start saving up some Gold Bars!
