There’s a week left of Season 10 and we’re yet to get the live rocket launch event. Here’s what we know so far including when the live event will likely take place, the name of the event and more.

Fortnite season 10 is expected to end on Sunday, 6th October. We’re still yet to experience a live event this season, but it’s all but confirmed that we’ll be getting it before the season ends. Here’s everything we know so far regarding the Season 10 live event. It goes without saying that there’s some spoilers ahead.

When will the Fortnite Season 10 Live Rocket Launch Event Happen? Time, date and countdown timer

There’s no official or datamined information as to when the season 10 live event will happen. We do know that Season 10 is expected to end on Sunday, October 6th and any event will have to take place prior to the season ending.

Previous live events have taken place on a Saturday, so it’s extremely likely the event will happen on Saturday, October 5th. Events in the past have started at 2pm ET/7pm BST, so expect to see the event happen at this time.

According to leaks, there’ll be a countdown timer appearing above the rocket at Dusty Depot and all the TVs in-game. We’ll have to wait and see when the countdown will appear as some dataminers believed that the countdown would start today at 2pm ET.

What will happen during the event? (leaks)

A rocket has been built by The Visitor at Dusty Depot, so we’ll see that launch during the event. Dataminers have leaked some information from the v10.40 Fortnite update regarding what will happen during the event.

According to dataminers Krispy Leaks, there will be a launch warning during the event, the rocket will launch and players will be unable to move. Dataminer Asriel_Dev has stated that players will be under the influence of a modified item and the name of the item/gadget is “Shadow Stone”.

Players, trees, and tomatoes will be sucked into the Zero Point at Loot Lake and an encrypted umap will appear which will be used for the cinematic. Popular dataminer Hypex has leaked some of the event sounds which you can listen to below:

Here’s some more leaked event files from FortTory including the alarm/light of the rocket and the leaked particle for the rocket:

There will be a ten minute warning and a one minute warning before the event starts. Players won’t be able to shoot at one another two minutes before the event.

Visitor Recordings/Tapes

For the Season 10 Overtime challenges which will be called “out of time”, players will need to collect Visitor recordings at different locations of the map. Dataminers have stated that these recordings will be played in the event. Here’s the leaked transcript thanks to ShiinaBR and Asriel_Dev:

The End LTM/Playlist

Several dataminers leaked what the Season 10 rocket launch event would be called in-game. The LTM will be called “The End” and according to the information leaked, players will not be able to kill one another. Dataminers also posted the rocket event loading screen event which you can check out below:

New Fortnite Map?

The week 10 limited time mission loading screen was also leaked, which shows the Battle Bus leaving the island whilst being waved off by some skins including Drift. There’s a chance that this could be a hint at a new map for Season 11, but we won’t know until the event takes place.

I’m not sure we’d get an Entirely new map? we’ve only just been given a new Rift Zone, and a new wooden structure is being built at the failed rift zone, and since the wooden tower at the farm took a few seasons to be fully built, it doesn’t seem like this new wooden structure would be finished before the end of this Season? maybe only the POI’s that Weren’t changed by Rift Zones are changed? (Leaked POI new names Lazy Lake, Weeping Woods, etc) and the Rift Zones stay, but no longer have their effects? so the gaps in-between… Read more »

If the end is nigh, but the people of the map don’t know it, then they would be going on about life as normal. Sounds like, from the leaked dialogue/tapes, that the Visitor is hoping to save things, but maybe it won’t happen, maybe it will. I wouldn’t put stock in anything being a sign of anything.

I just realized that Drift can be seen sitting next to Beach Bomber instead of Brite Bomber in the last loading screen and its adorable.

I think Epic will do like a PUBG thing and have a selectable map location where we can pick what we want.

Lol same, Team Rumble makes challenges much easier to do and it is very convenient not having to stress over getting eliminated by a location camper. (A location camper is a toxic kid that kills people that try to do a challenge at a specific location, such as eliminating people at a bottle flip target for the “Bullseye!” challenge.)
