Who Is Midas in Fortnite?
Midas is a major antagonist in the lore of Fortnite. He made his initial appearance in Fortnite: Chapter 2, Season 2, as the Tier 100 Legendary Outfit and served as one of the prominent NPC Bosses of that season.
Midas, who established SHADOW and commands GHOST, initiated the Device event to propel the Storm forward.
While Midas was successful, the Storm retaliated by submerging the entire Island in water. Following this incident, in the trailer for Chapter 2 Season 3, there is a video of sharks attacking Midas.
The character’s death was suspected by many due to this series of events, but his body was never discovered.
