The Zero Point is changing in Fortnite

Few days ago, a new update for the game started the destabilization of the Zero Point orb, which lead to theories that it might finally explode in the season finale. Players can notice changes in the orb with some erratic behaviors.

Last week, it sent waves of energy like a pulse denoting its decay, once every 4 minutes. But as the day progressed, the rate of pulses increased, from 4 minutes to then 2, and now, once every minute. Along with that, the energy of the pulses increased drastically too.

The reality strain which connects the orb to the different character portals has also become much more visible. The strains also flicker at regular intervals, just like the energy pulses from the orb.

One of the more intriguing changes to orb has to do with its appearance, which turned from blue to white and now at bright purple. The colors have become brighter as the energy of the pulses has increased. The design of the orb almost resembles the rifts from the previous seasons.

More destabilization and changes to be expected

The more recent changes in the orb include the addition of some heavenly sounds coming out of it. No one knows what these sounds mean though, and it’s open to interpretation. The portals at the end of the reality strains have also become distorted as the flickering increased. Further, the visibility of the Zero Point has also increased and people can view the pulses from longer distances.

A tweet from the Fortnite twitter account also suggested the conclusion of the season will be “explosive.” Fans already believe that the Zero Point will explode on March 15, but no one seems to know about its aftermath. It will be interesting to see what Epic Games have in store for the fans, but fans agree that it will blow their mind.
