Fortnite Season 6: The release of the Traveller and the start of the end for Season 5

The next few weeks are going to be huge for fans of the battle royale

The beginning of the end is here for Season 5.

Fans have been waiting with baited breath for the reveal of the Traveller skin (this seasons battle pass skin for completing seven week’s of challenges).

Week seven challenges are coming out this Friday with a large patch scheduled for Thursday.

The Traveller skin will only be available to those have the battle pass and have completed seven weeks worth of challenges

In Season 4 of Fortnite, the ‘challenge skin’ was the character that triggered the rocket, hence, causing the rifts and the events of Season 5.

We can expect something similar with Season 6.

The Traveller will be pivotal to whatever happens.

Many have speculated that it will have something to do with Salty Springs and the secret bunker located there.

Is their a hidden message from the stone heads?

Turns out the giant stone heads may be more than they appear to be

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.

All the stone heads are facing towards the direction of 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.

The bush is something we wouldn’t mind going in Season 6

Fortnite data miners believed they have discovered the date that the rifts will start to shrink and it’s today!

With the rifts shrinking players have speculated whether ‘the traveller’ who has been previously mentioned by Epic games will be making an appearance in Season 6.

However, as the scheduled patch isn’t going ahead until Thursday, we will likely see them begin to shrink then.
