‘Panther’s Prowl’ Location: Where To Find Fortnite’s New Black Panther POI – Forbes

The Marvel season continues to move quickly in Fortnite, even if this most recent addition is tinged with a little more sadness than those that have to do with any other superhero. The game just added a new landmark honoring Black Panther, and you can go see it in the game right now if you want. Be prepared to be a little misty-eyed, as it really is a lovely spot.

You can find the statue just West of Misty Meadows: look for an orange circle on the minimap. It’s tough to miss once you start cruising in over the area: it’s a giant, menacing panther sitting on top of a menacing rock in a field. When you go on top of it, a little dramatic percussion starts playing. It’s also indestructible, and presumably Vibranium. It sparkles purple, a little.

This was in the works before Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman’s death over the weekend, but it takes on new meaning in the wake of tragedy. The statue is a monument to a hero in fiction and in life, and a man being mourned by huge swaths of the country.

It seems more than likely now that there will be a Black Panther skin coming to Fortnite in the next few weeks, though Epic is likely pushing it back a little both out of respect and to figure out the best way to handle it. Deploying it as a charity skin is likely the best option going forward, ideally by donating the proceeds to a charity supported by Boseman during his life. Lots of other games have done charity skins in the past, and it would be poor form for Epic to try to profit off of the sales, considering it’s already shown itself more than willing to take big losses on ideological grounds, as we can see from its crusade against digital storefront premiums that has seen Fortnite delisted form the App Store and Google Play.

In any case, that will probably be weeks from now. For now, the game pays tribute to a hero through a statue, and its worth go taking a look at it.
