In a quest to end Season 10 of Fortnite Chapter 1, Epic Games created a digital black hole that sucked everything into it, even the game's main menu.
While players stared at the black hole, they were also able to find certain numbers, which when decoded, revealed a secret message.
In this article, we will take a look at what the Fortnite Black Hole event was and all the marvels surrounding it.

If there was a better way to end a game season, Fortnite knows how to pull it off. The Fortnite Black Hole event remains, to this day, one of the most spectacular and cataclysmic events in the game. Millions of players were left in the dark as everything fell into the black hole, signifying the end of the 10th Season in Fortnite.

Not only the game, but even the social media handles of Fortnite appeared to have been undergoing a metamorphosis, culminating in a huge wave of online uproar among Fortnite fans.

In this article, we will unravel what the Fortnite Black Hole event entailed, the enigma of the mystery numbers, and more.

What Was Fortnite Black Hole?

Players active during this cataclysmic event must remember the uproar the black hole led to. It was more than just an end to a season. While players knew that something big was imminent, no one had speculated it would be on such a large scale.

Fortnite had organized several events before the season concluded, including meteor shower, giant disco ball in the merry of a new year, exclusive game mode, and more.

What Happened During the End of Season 10?

The end of Season 10 also marked the end of Fortnite Chapter 1. As the meteor shower took place, a rocket launched into the sky, cracking it. When the meteor collided with the Zero Point, it triggered a chain reaction, leading to the collapse of Fortnite into a black hole.

Players who missed this event found themselves trapped in the lobby. It was also affected by the black hole's gravitational pull. If players tried to log in again, they were met with an error message and distorted login music. The black hole then reappeared, consuming the lobby once again.

After this concluding event ended, the black hole still lingered on the screen. This lasted for more than 37 hours, until it vanished, marking the beginning of Chapter 2 Season 1.

Fortnite Black Hole Mini Game

Back when the black hole was present on the screen, players could do nothing but stare at it. However, upon inserting the Konami code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start), they could unlock a mini-game to pass time, awaiting the next event.

This game is similar to Space Invaders, pitting players as a slice of pizza against a fleet of Durr Burger heads.

Fortnite Black Hole Mystery Numbers and Secret Message

But that is not all. While players were waiting for something to happen on the screen, they found something strange. They saw numbers appear and vanish in a matter of a few seconds.

These numbers were as follows:

  • 11 146 15 62

  • 87 14 106 2 150

  • 69 146 15 36

  • 2 176 8 160 65

When decoded, these would translate to a secret message. Players compared this to the total word count of all The Scientist's recordings from Season 10's Out of Time Challenges.

After the code was deciphered, the statement read: "I was not alone, others are outside the loop, this was not calculated, The Nothing is now inevitable."

This created much ruckus in the community as everyone tried to understand what it meant.

This is one of the most fascinating and loud events to have ever taken place in Fortnite. From mass-level destruction to a well-guarded mystery, Fortnite ended the first chapter with a bang.

Following this event, the second chapter began. However, nothing till now has been able to match the level of crazed hype that Epic Games had managed to create back then.
