Do we just turn it off? Is that the end? I don't want to miss anything


Tobicito

We wait 13 hours


Whereyaattho

If you’re at the screen where it says “to be continued in S8” then yeah log off, you’re done


ILoveDokkan1

Saw many POIs/Locations get destroyed. Really don't want to see them appear in season 8 untouched. Give me some new locations please!


anidevv

Then the map appears magically brand new with just the center having damage


PeterOwen00

would be pretty pissed if that ends up happening lmao


Genichi12

Fortnite Chapter 2 in a nutshell


DeliciousFlow8675309

I was hoping to see such a thing, I really want to see a new map. As a newer player I can’t complain too much about “newness” but one thing I despise about this map is how much open space there is to get between zones! Some matches if you pick the wrong landing spot you won’t even see other players until the third or fourth storm circle.


widelion255

specifically weeping woods, steamy stacks, holly hatchery, misty meadows, dirty docks, and stealthy stronghold are the ones I saw


shugo2000

Stealthy Stronghold is one POI I could do without. I doubt I landed there more than 1-2 times this season.


EX-Bronypony

I wanna know what happened to the players that didn’t survive the first cube attack.


Nergidiot

Nothing, everyone survived, but other players appeared to be eliminated for the event to look cinematic, assuming the elimed people were just invis to you for the event.


EX-Bronypony

Well then. What a coincidence that me and a Bullseye that I befriended before the event got put in the same group.


GhostOfMuttonPast

I wasn't as lucky. I made friends with a Color Crush during the pre-game and we ran the whole way together. Then she got dusted by Kevin :(


Mouseman320

Oof, that sucks. I was one of the only survivors in my group. There were like 6 people left after Kevin dusted the others


EmpuzAU

why is no one talking about that my Fortnite character since day one of Fortnite is canonically dead now.


roguesith

Or just knocked out. Maybe Super Man or Rick will fly in and save you. I hope you completed their quest lines.


IdkManSeemsKindaGey

Slone you absolute buffon, you didnt want 1 cube now you got a whole rain


BenGamez

Slone: “the risk I took was calculated, but man, am I bad at math”


Kitaclysm217

She's probably good at math and just rolled a nat 1


OwO_KaneBee

If you think about it, this is the only possible outcome from the two options Option 1 ( the bombing of the mothership ): we blow it up and cubes fly down to the island Option 2 ( not bombing the mothership ): we leave it there to wait for them to send the cubes themselves, as far as I know they were here to take the zero point to safety and to destroy us with all the cubes they had.


JayRogPlayFrogger

Oh the irony


RunningTall

HOLY SHIT THERE’S SO MANY KEVINS


Jomanderisreal

They showed the first few and I was like, "oh no..." They showed the rest of them and I was like, "OH NO."


CoreyBoBoreyy

I was like, “Oh YEAHHHH!”


Bilbo_Teabagginss

This fucking guy randomly bursted through my bedroom wall yelling "Oh YEAHHHH" like the damn Kool Aid man.


ILoveDokkan1

Blue Kevin too!


Hade1z

Blevin


rodermelon

Ninja, the blev, is also blue. The plot thickens.


QueenAshley296

kevin be like: I'm blue da ba di da ba dai


DramaticReveal1

I love this


BigDean88

Kevin and his family 🥰


IDespiseFatties

That shot of the island at the end was fucking sick. Way to end on a cliffhanger! I'm excited to hop on tomorrow after work and see what's changed!


FasterThanFaast

Ah yeah I might be “sick” tomorrow


Rooby__booby

Prediction for tomorrow: >*Fade in* >Hey you, you're finally awake


AcoHead

Naruto: I saw you trying to destroy the mothership. Pretty sick.


Gamergonemild

We get caught by a giant frog before hitting the ground.


Fredbearthoughts

Now that would be pretty cool honestly


Stone4D

Chapter 2 Season 8: Into the Kevinverse.


thehiddenshadow

Great end to season 7! I saw the betrayal coming a mile away, but it still hurt all the same. Last 4 minutes are a WILD ride... can't WAIT for these last 13 hours to pass... And some good screenshot material to boot!


Scottie0319

Great screenshots taken!! The ending scene was awesome!


Jago1288

That Abductor at the end... Ow.


LeDerkenPail

Yeah it was like thanos throwing a moon at us lol

Sc0rp0

JZambo9

Yeah now I have to go to talk with my family for the next 12 hours


__Corvus__

I gotta go sleep and wake up in 6 for class


Salamence-

Switch didn’t crash while running the event. 10/10


JapzBR504

EVERY LOCATION IS FUCKED I REPEAT EVERY LOCATION IS FUCKED


DaddyDog065

And slone didn't give a shit about it


LazyKidd420

Like she didn't give a shit about sending us on a suicide mission.


DaddyDog065

I know that we're in a loop but bitch we ain't expendable


DarkwraithKnight

I believe that we are out of the loop on this mission.


RainingBolts

Was Slone Amanda Waller the whole time


goovis__young

Hey now she did have us put up warning signs...


DaddyDog065

That only said move area. Like, where do we move? On top of a mountain, where a Kevin will strike?


neojoe039

My unnamed gas station better not have been touched.


64BitDragon

Which gas station?


neojoe039

Between corney, lazy and dusty


ChampagneAbuelo

I wonder if Season 8 will be some type of destroyed ruined map


DarthRen87

post apocalyptic type map please!


Far_Chocolate7166

MY RETAIL BETTER BE SAFE


JapzBR504

I hate to break it to you. Retail was the first thing that got fucked


Far_Chocolate7166

No....that can't be....I'll miss you retail.


TheOfficialArcane

All the locations have been vaulted and replaced with cubes


pigeondude_

New map pogs


Ggreenrocket

WHAT THE ABSOLUTE FUCK


tastycheesepuff

Did people actually get killed by Kevin? It looked like a lot of people died


Einstein4369

No they weren’t killed it was just made to look that way and people just turned invisible, you might’ve died on someone else’s screen


Nergidiot

That was dope, Bill and Ted better have survived.


averyrc

I saw one of them falling at the end, don’t worry :)


redpandasuit

Both of them fall by the player character on the left of the screen at the end.


Mango_AT

Me too


st1ck3rguy

I really hope they survived, being locked in a parasite room is actually scary


StickmanPirate

Pretty sure I saw one falling past me in the end scene


wojoski13

The white one fell pass me


Gam18Er

I lost it when I saw them with the parasite eggs


InfectedBananas

I saw some people get eliminated at kevin, did that happen to anyone?


CaptainCornflakez

Same, i think they strategically added a ton of bots that would "die" on purpose? Edit: Guys I get it, they probably are players that got sent to a different phase you can all stop replying to me now saying the exact same thing.


Frank_is_the_Best_

Just to show how dangerous the cube is.


IdiotSandwitchLOL

Nah, they were players but they were still alive they were only invisible so it looks like really scary


Ham-bolo54

Yeah there were only like 7 people left for me


mescad

There were only 3 of us in my group.


PM_ME_MEMEZ_

I don’t think anyone actually got eliminated, otherwise like 75% of players wouldn’t be able to see the ending of the event. It was a cool effect though, I’m not sure how they did it.


ItsVanillaNice

make portions of the players invisible to eachother


_Pixelated_Penguin_

Me too. I assume they crashed


IDespiseFatties

I'm guessing that no one really died. You probably died on their screens for dramatic effect but no one really "died"


kellyfacee

I saw people get eliminated too. Wonder where they ended up


actorthrowaway2006

Yeah, it made me shit my pants every time I got hit, lol


Jedimaster996

I think they were separating the groups/lobbies.


goodoleggsboi

IT'S ALL KEVIN?!


bujuhh

oops, all kevin!


Andres_F1

Always has been


BenGamez

Always has been


Notyouraveragegeorge

So….that was amazing but…wtf just happened


shugo2000

We thought there was only one Kevin. We were wrong.


Notyouraveragegeorge

Yea that was tripping me out


bianceziwo

isnt kevin just an energy source?


4morian5

I can't list all the evidence here, since I don't actually know all of it, but Kevin has some degree of intelligence and has powers beyond being a battery. Able to either corrupt beings to darkness or create dark copies of them, some connection to rifts, anti-gravity, etc.


KeybordKat

Sentient dark matter then?


Silver-Menace

I think Kevin is some sort of programmable device used for destruction and terraforming


geeduhb

In the end, WE WERE ALL KEVIN


shugo2000

The real Kevin is the friends we died with today.


DarthBen_in_Chicago

Seems like they need downtime for an updated map for S8!!!


David1258

We're dead.


RoyaleAbsol

Slone's a traitorous bitch, that's what.


Ggreenrocket

And what is the punishment for treason? She apparently didn’t like Jonsey or Maven betraying her but she was fine doing it to us.


Pugz333

Mfs took the henchmen, can’t have shit in detroit


Hade1z

Trapped in the Parasite room 😔


BoomanShames

one was definitely thrown out at the end! i think the ghost henchman survived. i bet you next season they’ll be separated and over the season they’ll get closer and closer until they reunite


Hade1z

Yes, that would be perfect! Also Farmer Steel escaped, he was holding onto a chicken lol


GryffindorFratBro

Holy shit, the map is shaping up to be pretty different with all the cubes and debris coming down. And I KNEW Sloane would betray us.


[deleted]

I’m surprised at how good this was, it felt super cinematic


UnsaltedButthole

Sloane is a butthole


Whereyaattho

So Slone just left us to die? Man fuck her frfr


shotgunz-mikey

I mean, Mari did warn us, and what did we do?


0Default0

I never trusted slone, but was forced to do her task...


JackWylder

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!


__Luk3

Maven was right all along


timberflynn

She literally sent us into a ship with bombs


King_D3D3D3

I.O. believers literally in shambles.


electriceel8

Yeah. I think she’ll come back tho


VickyPedia

Mari was right all along


GDMolin

I mean it was pretty obvious she was going to betray us. Just going off what Mari told us.


stevejust

Even if there was no Mari, I've died this season more than once at her triple spawning ass shooting at me. How many times did I die from Kymera or a trespasser? Like never. So Slone was always the obvious enemy. IO needs to burn.


TheRealCheeseDanish

Fuck Slone, all my homies hate Slone


TheSciFiGuy80

If you read the Batman/Fortnite comic before this event occurred, you knew she wasn’t exactly an up and up person.


Crabman169

Me as a member of the Seven sipping tea whilst saying "I told you guys not to trust her!"


dippleshite

I'm still sorta new to fortnite? Would anyone be willing to explain some of the Kevin lore?


DARLCRON

Kevin was a Cube formed during Season 5 of Fortnite Chapter 1. Because everyone was talking about The Cube, Fortnite mods disabled posts with the word cube in them. To get around this, someone called it Kevin, and the name stuck ever since.


kitticats

The coolest part is Epic adopted the name Kevin for the cube and we got the lil' kev backbling, with the cube officially being named Kevin.


Duck-smooth

And the facility at steamy stacks is “Kevolution”


BenGamez

It all started with a Reddit post…


ImA_JuiceBox

Basically back in season 5, a random ass cube appeared in the desert and started moving towards a lake in the center of the map, and basically turned the lake purple and bouncy. Then in season 6, a floating island flew out of the lake with the cube and eventually it blew up.


Sc0rp0

Purple = kevin Blue = blevin


TheFoundationFNBR

tyler “ninja” blevins?!? real


Enchaxo

visitor used rocket to rift into the sky, rift used lightning to spawn cube that rolled around the map making low gravity zones and then it melted in loot lake, the next season Kevin is a floating island and he sucks up all the low gravity zones juice and then fucking explodes


NightHawk_Enthusiast

I just ran Master Chief. Gotta say, with that skin, it was pretty hype.


SwiprNOSEwipng

Same, felt like Halo at some points.


GRAMAZ_

Same. The falling part at the end? Fire visuals


vonpyrr

Same here, the falling scene was epic with Master Chief skin


-Heliodora-

Some people got stuck in the wall when the giant Kevin began to rise up


mccdeast

Yep. Really annoying....


No_Mans_Bill_Nye

Amazing how much emotional attachment I could form with a cube just because it turned blue


SandwitchZebra

What we learned from this event! -Slone is a bitch -Kevin is a species -We can “reboot” a Kevin and purify him (maybe a mechanic next season?) -The middle of the map isn’t gonna be the only thing ruined -Weather forecast calls for darkness tonight -Foundation is gonna be PISSED when he finally gets out of the water -Zero Point is probably laughing its ass off at this -Sunny is gonna have a bad night -THE HENCHMEN LIVE


Razbyte

Also this just mean that the OG Cube (Kevin) that was in season 6 isn’t the same we experienced on the events of Save the World. In STW the final boss came out on a Cube. Thus it also means that those cubes contains at least one Storm King. Expect a wild Fornitemares.


Redzone676

We saved the city guys!


Priztian

We did it Patrick!


theepictut

Are they all named Kevin or we gota name them all


GenericGamer628

Blevin, Kevin, Keith, ken, Kristina


RealAlligatorWithGun

Blue Kevin is blevin


TheOfficialArcane

Thunder god kevin and the Kevin children


Desperate_Bite_7538

Kev1n Kev2n Kev3n Kev4n Kev5n Kev6n Kev7n Kev8n Kev9n Kev10n Etc...


SmearReddit

Best event ever, holy shit the visuals were amazing!


JohnnyA77

I’m with you, I’ve enjoyed all the other ones but that last visual of everything crashing to the island was insane


electriceel8

Yeah


Hade1z

Yes! This was awesome!


lazyJOE19

Hiiiiiiii Kevinnnnn


fruitfruitycake

You guys killed it. Hands down the best event we’ve ever had in fortnite. Exploring the spaceship and having us interact with the event is probably the best thing about it. Cant wait for season 8 and what kevin is up to.


ItchZ

Slone you dirty bitch


BenGamez

Fuck Slone, all my homies hate Slone.


Memezlord_467

Cant wait for FORTNITE SEASON 8: Brain Damage


hert76

We just spend the entire season trying to remember how to use weapons and build structures. As a result all weapons have -100% accuracy and building is 200% slower for everyone.


geeduhb

I actually heard there won’t be any weapons, besides little shards of Kevin you throw at each other…


Memezlord_467

Ah yes, balanced gameplay at last


MaxxPwnage

My jaw actually dropped at the 2nd cube reveal. That was awesome!


trebuchet__

And then all the others starting to glow as well


Buper_Duper

Bro did anyone else get hit with chills and all kinds of feels when seeing Kevin and the entire ship full of him


Pandemic-AtTheDisco

Ok Epic is actually insane. The graphics on this event. Favorite event by far. Oh my goodness


Moltress2

<3 for Blevin (Blue Kevin).


Frank_is_the_Best_

Holy fucking shit. That was so fucking cool! The lore, the visuals, the reference to the henchmen. Everything! Best event ever.


DaddyDog065

So, from what I saw. The bromance were abducted because they possibly knew too much. The mothership itself is floating Kevin the cube fabricator, and is probably using the energy from the cubes to keep it afloat. Slone is a bitch. Mari was right all along. The island looks like it's gonna be fucked up, but probably just gonna be minor map changes and one big ass crater. The explosion was so big, even Ur mom died

#KEVIN(S)


GameMyth

I saw boney get crushed and farmer steel survived so I'm happy


__Luk3

That's it, we died, the end.


M33ster_M00garry

The bad ending😔


SonOfGarry

Holy fuck the map just got completely brutalized by all that debris. AND THERE’S THOUSANDS OF KEVINS?!?!?


Und1es

In before all the Dark series outfits get a blue style 😂.


hubhazard

We’ve been tricked, backstabbed, and possibly bamboozled


Theo_Cueio

We Are Fucked, One Kevin almost destroyed the island, thousands of Kevins on the other hand…


Eye_Eff_Tea

I can't believe we just fucking died


SilentJ87

For my first live event (started 3 weeks ago) and that was freakin amazing.


Sc0rp0

blue cube is blevin fight me


Billyb311

Did people die during the event? The cube killed everyone but me and 2 others


geeduhb

I think they either just separated the lobbies or it was just visual and people were still there, you just couldn’t see them.


David1258

Wow, just wow. That felt like a movie. The part where the UFO kills us and cuts to black - the most chills I got from Fortnite. So excited for Season 8.


GenericGamer628

Black hole part 2???????


Lolllldank

Amazing 10/10 Kevin would recommend.


xcessive7

now what?


DillyWest

Super cool running through the even with everyone


JustSubscribed

Blue cube name is Steve, connected to blues clues


The_Iceman2288

Like Catherine O'Hara at an airport baggage carousel, I screamed "KEVIN!" when it appeared.


InAndOut51

As someone who only started playing during season 2, it sure was cool to finally meet The Cube.
