Unfortunately, all we know about the underwater Doomsday Hatches is what we can see above and what we’ve already told you. It’s shrouded in mystery. Presumably, however, they have something to do with the ending of Chapter 2 Season 2 and the ushering in of Chapter 2 Season 3. This, for those that don’t know, is scheduled for April 30, 2020.

As of writing, you cannot open the Fortnite Doomsday Hatches. It’s unclear what the Doomsday Hatches will do if they do anything. All we can tell right now is that they could have something to do with the end of Chapter 2 Season 2. Whether or not you’ll be able to open the underwater hatches towards the end of April 2020, however, is another thing. There’s more on the way, too. FortTory has also shown off the Fortnite Doomsday Device and Doomsday Door. We’ve embedded FortTory’s tweet below:

You might be able to open the underwater hatches in Fortnite at some point. As already said, they’re likely to do with Season 2 ending and Season 3 beginning. Whatever Epic Games has planned for the Doomsday Hatches, however, should be revealed soon enough.
