“Fortnite” Chapter 2 – Season 8 hit the ground running, bringing back a fan-favorite storyline involving Kevin the Cube and its cubic brethren. In addition to the return of the Cubes, “Fortnite” also added an entirely new dimension in the form of The Sideways, an alternate plane that offers deadly new weapons and foes called Cube Monsters. These glowing purple aliens attack players who wander into their realm, but they also offer valuable materials for weapon upgrades. In fact, some “Fortnite” Chapter 2 – Season 8 weapons need Cube Monster Parts for an upgrade, but finding them isn’t always easy.
Cube Monsters drop Cube Monster Parts when defeated, but players can only find Cube Monsters and their related drops in Sideways Zones and Anomalies, which YouTuber FifteenDorra noted appear as purple points on the map. Sideways Zones and Anomalies spawn in different locations every game, which means Cube Monsters (and their Parts) don’t have a set location.
