HYPEX was able to dive into the game and uncover all of the cable locations and how they connect to the Doomsday device, which is stored in Midas’ room.

The device itself has drawn a lot of comparisons over recent weeks, its presence in the background of the room is daunting for sure.

Although it is simply a Reddit post, the user did get one of the leaks right so far. So Fortnite fans are keeping close tabs on the game to see if these leaks are going to pan out.

One of the leaks noted that the map is essentially going to be flooded, or at least large portions of the map are going to be underwater.

This is by far the most ludicrous leak we have seen thus far, as it would not feel like Fortnite if we were all underwater.

However, this has gotten lots of Fortnite fans wondering if the Doomsday event is going to trigger some sort of underwater explosion and cause this flooding.

For now, we simply have to wait; and keep our eyes peeled for what will come next with the next Fortnite update this week!
