Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 is now live and it has reintroduced Cubes to the game and how! The Cubes that powered the Mothership are now free, and are a bigger threat to the Island than the Aliens.

Chapter 2 Season 8 arrives in Fortnite

Kevin the Cube has landed in Fortnite and has brought his army along. The “Cubed” Fortnite update for Chapter 2 Season 8 kicked off with the Operation Sky Fire in-game event. It will carry on for the next couple of months.

Concentrated mostly around the crashed wreckage of the Mothership, the Cubes have an effect on the nearby environment. Surprisingly, some of the ship’s tech still works and its anti-gravity tunnels can transport groups around in loops. Fortnite lore is filled with Cube-spec stories.

Weapons in Sideways

The Cube Monsters will keep on coming after gamers enter an Anomaly. However, they’ll earn Sideways weapons as they proceed. Defeated monsters will drop Cube Monster Parts, a crafting ingredient to upgrade Sideways weapons.

Players can take these weapons and parts with them after leaving an Anomaly. In Sideways, monsters do not fight in mobs. Here, gamers can find weapons loot, so these places present a different way to fortify gamers. The two new weapons in Sideways are:

  • The Sideways Rifle
  • Sideways Minigun

Players can deal bonus damage by revving them to their super powered state. Essentially, players need to have these weapons close to overheating for extra effectiveness.
