The End was a live event that took place on the last day of Season 10/X and Chapter 1 on October 13th, 2019 at 2:00pm EST. At the start of the event, the rocket at Dusty Depot took off and rifted away into the sky, like it did in season 4, but unlike before, it went into a rift much sooner after it launched. All the rifts above the rift zones activated. A single rocket came out of the rift over Greasy Grove, it flew down and turned upwards, flying past Dusty Depot and into a rift over Lonely Lodge. The other rifts over the rift zones created 6 additional rockets that flew around into their own rifts (probably 1 for each of The Seven). They each came out of these rifts again flew around the map a bit, eventually crashing into the same rift. A rift opened behind the Meteor and a rocket came out of it flying around the meteor and creating a rift at the Factories POI. All 7 rockets collided with this rift multiple times, looping around the meteor until it unfroze and went into the rift. A few seconds later, a rift appeared above Loot Lake and one rocket came out. It pointed a laser at The Zero Point (likely a callback to Season 4's Rocket Launch) and crashed into it, creating a shockwave that knocked players into the sky. Shortly after, a much bigger rift opened up and the meteor, surrounded by the remaining 6 rockets, violently collided with The Zero Point. This ultimately created a much larger explosion and filled the island with stars. A few seconds later, the explosion effect started moving inwards and the Zero Point created a vortex that sucked in the entirety of the game. This includes the island, players, and even menu elements. Players still in the lobby also experienced this.
After the event, players were greeted to a black screen with a small object with the appearance of a black hole emitting blue light. Over time, numbers would appear around it. During this state, if you were to enter the KONAMI code (UP UP DOWN DOWN LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT B/CIRCLE A/X ENTER/MENU/OPTIONS/PLUS), you would be able to play a mini-game that replicates the arcade game seen in the Season 9 trailer. The mini-game was previously playable during the Fortnite World Cup livestreams in-game.
18 different numbers appeared around the black hole. The numbers are 11, 146, 15, 62, 87, 14, 106, 2, 150, 69, 146, 15, 36, 2, 176, 8, 160, and 65. When put into comparison by the number of words in all of the Visitor's recordings from the Season 10 Out of Time Challenges, it states "I was not alone, others are outside the loop, this was not calculated, The Nothing is now inevitable".
On October 15th, the black hole vanished and Chapter 2 Season 1 began.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The 6 rockets that guided the Meteor into the Zero Point rifted away just before the blackhole could suck them in.
