Fortnite's The End event currently has players sitting and watching a black hole, with many led to think that this event that began Sunday would come to an end in the early hours of Tuesday. Some have used this time to create troll videos of the black hole, whereas many others have turned to making and looking at memes to help pass the time.
These memes, as they often do, quickly took over the internet, appearing on all forms of social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Many made are of the black hole itself, while others used old and popular formats to address the buzz around the latest Fortnite event. There's certainly some good memes out there, but there are also some that are a bit lackluster.
One plays on the idea of the "Fortnite Killer," a title given to but quickly dismissed for every battle royale title to launch after Epic Games' take on the genre. After dismissing Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Blackout, it shows the image of Thanos' famous line, "I'll do it myself" in reference to ending Fortnite. Another players on the old viral meme of Elon Musk buying the game in order to end it. Here are a few memes that are circulating around online that should get a laugh out of fans of the popular battle royale franchise.

Watching nothing for hours
Of course, there are other things fans of the game can do beyond sitting around and watching the black hole or looking at related memes. There's a Fortnite mini-game accessed by the Konami Code players can check out while they wait, there's always the possibility of playing another game or going outside, and there's even been a leak for the upcoming Fortnite Chapter 2.
The latter is worth checking out, as it shows a bit of the new battle royale island, some of the new skins, and a few surprising new mechanics. The Fortnite Chapter 2 trailer leak seems like it's the beginning of a new world, literally and figuratively, for the franchise.
Fortnite is out now for mobile devices, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
