Fortnite’s sneaky new Batman hut hints at a bigger cave
You may not have noticed it, but Fortnite Now home to a new Batman destination … although it’s not exactly the Bat Cave. Instead, the game added a small Bat Shack with its update earlier this week, one that teases a potentially bigger change involving Batman coming to Battle Royale Island – including, potentially, a new one. POI Bat Cave.
Batman isn’t exactly an alien to the Fortnite world – we’ve already seen the superhero come big with Gotham’s takeover of the point of interest past Tilted Towers. This time around, Batman returns as part of the Zero Point Crisis, the storyline of which is explored in a new comic book miniseries from DC Comics.
As of Tuesday’s update, there is now a small cabin in the middle of a small island near Slurpy Swamp; it is not a designated POI, so the location does not have a label visible on the map. The hut is the same as the others you’ll find around the island, but with one notable difference: the bat symbol near the door.
If you enter the hut, you’ll find Batarangs stuck to various surfaces, as well as a chalkboard and random items like a barrel and an old computer on a table. The location doesn’t reveal anything particularly interesting, but stands out for what it represents: Batman’s likely arrival on the island.
Players expect a Batman NPC to appear at the hut destination, though there isn’t one yet. Additionally, fans believe the hut marks the spot where a larger Bat Cave will appear, potentially providing players with a new destination to explore.
