Is the Fortnite Wanderer ghost actually real?


Fortnite players are claiming to see a ghost in random locations across the map, but if they’re telling the truth, what could it mean for the game?

Fortnite is arguably the most popular multiplayer game in the world right now. From dances in the game turning into real-life trends to multiple celebrity guest skins, Fortnite carved its place in pop culture history. Still, most people associate that popularity with its gameplay more than its lore. Even so, the lore does exist, and it’s deeper than most people would imagine. For example, reality rift Zero Point explains the appearance of characters from different universes. Meanwhile, the overarching story of each season fleshes out the otherwise lore-light game.

Recently, fans have reported sightings of a mysterious ghost wandering Fortnite maps, and it could have big implications for the game’s ongoing lore.

What is the Wanderer ghost in Fortnite?

The Wanderer is a mysterious ghost-like entity that randomly spawns in Fortnite Battle Royale. They are potentially the main villain of the season.

Multiple players reported sightings of the Wanderer, a cloaked figure that walks towards the player before fading away. The entity does not harm the player or anybody else. Instead, it typically just stands there menacingly.

Players have spotted the Wanderer in six locations on Fortnite Island.

  • Cliffside Lodge (Wasteland)
  • Coastal Comms
  • Dam Bridge
  • Estate Station
  • Nitrodome
  • Placid Pumps

Other players claim some NPCs and characters will mention a “mysterious figure” appearing at the edges of their vision, only to disappear when directly looked at. Notably, the Oracle from Chapter 5, Season 2 warned players of the Wanderer’s arrival in the season finale.

Some speculate the Wanderer is Doctor Doom from Marvel Comics given the figure’s distinctive hood and sinister aura. Others claim he is an original character, separate from the glut of guest cameos. The Wanderer’s appearance sparked excitement in the Fortnite community, which typically doesn’t have mysteries to unpack given the leak community’s thoroughness.

The Wanderer ghost could be Fortnite’s attempt at adding a “Herobrine” figure to Fortnite. For context, Herobrine was a similarly mysterious specter in Minecraft wearing a Steve skin without pupils that spawned from online urban legends. In most stories, it would follow the player but not do anything to harm them. It only stared.

Helldivers 2 did something similar when players reported blue laser beams disintegrating players at random. When the players asked devs what the beams were about, the developers denied them. “Blue beams aren’t real, they can’t hurt you,” said the devs. The widespread footage of players hit by real blue beams that hurt them contradicted these statements, and the devs fessed up eventually.

Overall, the Wanderer mystery has the Fortnite community buzzing, and revelations will likely happen soon.
