We saw a new game mechanic in Fortnite Battle Royale, the Sideways, right at the beginning of Season 8. These areas are where we can see what appears to be an alternate dimension. It is obscured by the ground, less gravity, and it is not possible to build (among many other changes).
One of the new NPCs this season asks you to investigate Sideways anomalies, and then go inside. It’s not an easy task, however, as it’s a brand new mechanic. It’s easy to complete this quest by simply looking at the map.
Each match you play, The Sideways is at a new spot. If you want to locate the sideways in a particular match look at the map. Look for the area that looks similar to the Corny Complex in the image above. Here you will find the Sideways Anomaly.
You can either walk or glide into The Sideways to enter it. There is no barrier that can be broken through. You can walk to The Sideways from the edge and enter the alternate universe. You should note, however, that nobody can see you in the anomaly. And you can’t see anyone else once you’re there!
