Located on the east side of the map in the South of Grand Glacier, there's a secret bunker that can not be entered. This is somewhat similar to the secret Wailing Woods bunker that was later discovered to be the IO Headquarters. Places like these have always been the best-kept secrets in Fortnite, and we rarely get to know their backstory.

There are various theories regarding Fortnite Season 5's secret bunker. However, the two most widely accepted theories are that it's either a reference to the Lethal Company collaboration or an upcoming event related to Magneto, a Marvel collaboration Outfit that will be launched on July 2, 2024.


2) The Wanderer Graffiti

The Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 map has a lot of "wrecked" locations to explore. One of them is the wrecked train that has a secret message portrayed through graffiti.

This graffiti on the train features The Wanderer, one of the most prominent antagonists in Fortnite's lore. Players are very eager to know more about the relevance of these hidden messages throughout the map. Overall, the Wanderer graffiti might be the best-kept secret in Fortnite Chapter 5.

Every season, we get to see various easter eggs and references from pop culture in the game. In Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, the Metallica collaboration is one of the most talked about the topic in the community. With the Fortnite Festival Season 4 featuring the band as well as amazing skin lines released in the Item Shop, fans are beyond happy with all the updates.

Players can also gain some bonus XP by completing hidden Metallica Quests on the loot island. When entering the tunnel, we can see a wall mentioning "Cliff 'EM All!" This is highly probable to be a tribute to the late Cliff Burton, Metallica's ex-bassist. For those who don't know, Cliff Burton sadly passed away in a bus accident in 1986.


4) Axle

The Peabody Outfit is part of the Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 Battle Pass. It's an adorable cosmetic with nothing unusual or mysterious. However, it is the name of the third pea that might interest a lot of players, Axle.

In Chapter 5 Season 2, the Dummy NPC used to mention his friend named Axle. In April 2024, certain content creators received a set of survey skins that included a punk or apocalyptic version of Fortnite's Dummy outfit, which aligns with the NPC dialogues from the last season.

However, Axle is also the name of one of the three peas of the Peabody Outfit, raising questions about whether both are mentioning the same person and if Epic Games is trying to send a message.


5) Oscar Returns
