Zero Point Pulse is getting faster in Fortnite

It was only yesterday that Epic Games confirmed when Chapter 2 Season 6 was starting and when to expect the Season 5 event.

Now, just hours later, Zero Point is beginning to pulse and glow purple in the centre of Fortnite's map.

The Zero Point's pulse speed has halved over the last day.

This means that now, as pointed out by a number of people online, the Zero Point now pulses every minute.

This means that it could be pulsing every three seconds by March 16th, 2021.

Surely something's going to explode soon?

Zero Point Is Glowing

As pointed out by @HYPEX on Twitter, Zero Point is now permanently glowing purple and pulses every two minutes.


If you're standing close to it, or are hovering above, it's a pretty impressive sight.

This is probably the start of what will be almost a full week of teases for the Season 5 event, leading into Season 6.

Season 5 Event


Epic confirmed that the Season 5 event will be playable solo, just being available when you first log in, before Season 6 begins on March 16.

It is expected that Zero Point has something to do with it, as the new information backs up.

However, how exactly that'll work is unclear. Whether the mysterious orb will swallow the whole map and spit something else back out, or just explode, we'll have to wait until next week to find out.

Season 6 is just around the corner

Epic said that the event will "change reality as we know it," so you can expect it to be something quite dramatic and significant.


Season 5 Event & Season 6 Start Time

As we said, Season 6 is set to start on March 16, with downtime usually starting at around 3am ET/8am GMT that morning.

If those times are correct, and we expect them to be, the Season 5 event will likely be the evening before, with you being able to play it at any time you log in as Season 6 starts.

As soon as the finalised date is announced, we'll be sure to update you with the exact details.
