Where is Midas in Fortnite? Season 6 has arrived and other than a few cameo appearances, the villian has yet to return.
Despite its reputation for silly dances and promotional crossovers, Fortnite has managed to build up some interesting lore over the years, with fans actually interested in some of the game’s original characters.
Sure, you’ll always have those fans who started the game to play as The Mandalorian or Ryu from Street Fighter but if they keep playing, they’re bound to find an original character or two to keep their eye on.
What Happened To Midas in Fortnite?
Among the characters fans always ask about, Midas tends to get referenced once or twice since he was one of the earlier bosses for Fortnite Chapter 2.
Midas appeared to be in charge of GHOST, which was why he was one of the bosses players took on in Fortnite Season 2 Chapter 2.
Later on, during The Device, it seemed to reveal that he was an undercover agent for Shadow, due to his relations with Jules.
During the start of Chapter 2 Season 3, Midas was seemingly killed by a Loot Shark but was revived through a mysterious ritual that turned him into Shadow Midas.
Shadow Midas was an entirely different beast from regular Midas, as he can now control dark spirits and even led the Ghostly Ghost Henchmen.
Bunker Jonesy actually brings up the fact that Shadow Midas might not be the same Midas players previously encountered, hinting that he’s a vessel to get some dirty deeds done.
This seems to be the last canon version of Midas in Fortnite since Midas Rex, who seems to be a cyborg version of the fan-favourite character, can only be purchased in the Last Laugh DLC pack.
He's even appeared as a Flopper in-game!
It’s not yet known if this will be the last we see of Midas, especially after the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.
Epic Games could also bring him back for some kind of anniversary event but we’ll have to see it to believe it.
Fortnite is available now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
