Fortnite Season 6: The secret message behind the giant stone heads is game changing

Could this change everything in Season 6?

Turns out they may not just be giant stone heads scattered around the map.

Players have been continuing to rinse the Season 5 Fortnite map for all of its secrets.

A new theory has started to formulate around the giant stone heads that appeared around the map at the start of Season 5.

Could we see a catastrophic event take-out Salty Springs?

With the theme of Season 6 still being speculated on and fans not knowing what sort of event will trigger its start.

This theory makes a lot of sense and has some pretty convincing evidence.

Reddit user ShadoukenGames traced the direction every stone head was facing.

It turns out they are all looking towards Salty Springs.

A popular destination located just South of Dusty Divot.

It also just so happens to be located underneath the largest rift on the map…

Coincidence? We think not.

That’s not all though, as located in Salty Springs is a secret underground bunker.

Players are still not sure what relevance this bunker plays but have theorised that it could be something to do with the stone heads.

Season 6 could be in for a great start if all these theories turn out to be correct.

What could the themes be?

Many YouTubers and streamers have been saying we could see the return of the most sought-after skin in the game ‘The Skull Trooper’.

This was a Halloween exclusive skin which was integral to Fortnite Battle Royale’s initial launch and success.

A creepy ominous Halloween/horror movie theme is currently the top candidate in the community for Season 6.

Areas of the map could easily be overhauled to have a more sinister feel, with Haunted Hills already being an example of that.

Werewolf, alien, Frankenstein and more skins could also be part of the battle pass.

Due to some players looking through the code in future patch notes they uncovered that there may be more water areas coming to the Fortnite map.

This has led players to believe that the theme of season 6 will be ‘water based’ with a great flood taking over portions of the map.

This could again lead to new vehicles in the form of boats, and the opportunity for some more brilliant skins.

It has also been found that the skins from previous seasons often hint at what is coming next.

Leaks have shown two new scuba diving skins are going to be released as well as the already released Chomp Sr. skin…
