Parent’s guide to Fortnite: How old is too young to let the kids play?

Each time the shadow man attacks and Nicky protects the boy, Nicky grows larger until he is able to fight the shadow man. After the shadow is defeated, Nicky sees the neighbor in a small house, locking a much smaller shadow man in another room. A child named Nicky Roth is playing in the street when he hears a scream from his neighbor’s house.

He is awoken by a child’s scream, and he discovers the neighbor’s house is back, but now larger, more complex, and more surreal than before. Nicky navigates the house and has surreal experiences, such as learning to double jump by shrinking down and trying to turn on the light that is far out of reach. Eventually, he enters the basement, now older and more surreal. When Nicky gets out of the basement, he finds himself trying to knock down a giant neighbor to get inside a house on his back. After doing so, he must protect a younger version of himself from a giant shadow man.

He finds his old home in disrepair while the neighbor’s home is also nothing but a pile of ruins. While inspecting the ruins, Nicky is haunted by a dark shadow-like creature and he returns to his home where he falls asleep.

Additionally, as of the 1.3 patch, Mr. Peterson has a vacuum cleaner which he will pull out to bring Nicky to him when he cannot reach him, making it significantly harder to evade him. Said vacuum cleaner does not allow Nicky to push Mr. Peterson over, as he’ll be caught immediately upon contact with it. Mr. Peterson takes every measure he can in order to defend his basement, which is very heavily secured. The man seems to take several precautions with the basement door in particular, indicating he’s hiding something. In the Pre-Alpha, the protagonist needed to collect a key/lock-pick, hammer/crowbar, and even a passcode using a blacklight which could be found in either the Neighbor’s room or the bathroom.


  • Nicky can also hide from him using beds, closets, or their Invisibility power, as long as he is not within Mr. Peterson’s line of sight.

Young Nicky will then run around the house, however he will eventually fall, Nicky must get infront of young Nicky to absorb the Shadow Boss’ attacks. Every time Nicky absorbs the Shadow Boss’ attacks he becomes bigger. As the Shadow Boss’ attacks slowly tear apart the house, Nicky becomes bigger and bigger until he is as big as the Shadow Boss, confronting his fears. He is evicted from his apartment, so he decides to return to his old family home.

Alpha 2 was also the first build where he was actually seen setting up bear traps, cameras, and mannequins, rather than them just appearing. When nearby, the player’s screen would become darker and shake violently, with a 3D anaglyph shadowing their view. In Alpha 2, outrunning him was unlikely, as he was much faster than the protagonist. However, from Alpha 3 onwards, the protagonist is slightly faster than Mr. Peterson.

Nicky can also hide from him using beds, closets, or their Invisibility power, as long as he is not within Mr. Peterson’s line of sight. If successful, Mr. Peterson will look around a few times before walking off. However, he’ll sometimes check the nearest closet, making this a less efficient method of hiding from him. The Neighbor threw bear traps and tomatoes at the protagonist during the Pre-Alpha and Alpha 1, and between Alpha 3 and Beta 3, he instead just threw jars of glue at them. The final build has him throwing both tomatoes and jars of glue in order to inhibit Nicky in his goals.

In Alpha 1, all that was needed was a key/lock-pick, and a hammer/crowbar. As the builds progressed, the required items remained the same, but have become progressively harder to find. Going through the door in the area will lead Nicky to a strange house with a younger version of himself playing with toys.
