Fortnite Chapter 2 has not introduced all that much in the way of story developments, as we are entering a mostly clean slate from the Visitor/Cube/Rift era of the game on the old map. But with the Alter Ego skins and loading screens this season, some fans are trying to go all FBI and try to come up with hierarchy for what appears to be a budding criminal organization in Fortnite land.
Based on loading screens and other bits of lore, user u/destructor_999 has come up with the following master chart showing the criminal enterprise’s organization. Just imagine all these faces pieced together with bits of a string on a bulletin board.
So to recap, here’s what we have:
Boss tier – Chaos Agent (shop skin)
Second in Command tier – Sorana (secret Legendary loading screen skin), Fusion (tier 100 battle pass skin)
General tier – Toxin, Scratch, Chic, Riptide (battle pass skins)
Elite tier – Big Chuggus (shop skin), Hazard (battle pass skin)
Footsoldier tier – Stingray (shop skin), Sludge (battle pass skin)
It seems likely that there are probably more to come to add to this list, and that the “good guy” alter egos are in their own posse to some extent.
So what is this criminal organization doing, exactly? That’s unclear. We have seen them moving everything from guns to fish to Slurp juice, but if there’s a master plan in action from Chaos Agent, the full scope of that has not been revealed. It’s not clear if whatever is happening here is just run of the mill crime or leading to something larger, that could perhaps say, change the map in a future season.
We have two extra months in this season, but we are about to run out of loading screens as Fortnite is apparently taking some time off and being reduced to holiday events and such. I don’t know if Chaos Agent and his team are going to prove to be relevant for future seasons of Fortnite content, or if their little supervillain team here is just temporary for this season and we won’t be seeing them again. I’d like to see them keep expanding and driving the story forward, but so far, it’s unclear and feels a little bit like GI Joe versus COBRA, which is neat enough, I guess.
Look for more additions to both the good guys and bad guys as this season presses on, and I welcome your own theories about what’s happening here as well.
