5 Fortnite leaks that never happened

Published

on

Fortnite data miners dive deep into the game’s code every week when a new patch is released, and some are able to find hints towards upcoming content while others still remain to be added.

Leaks are revealed by Fortnite data miners multiple times a week that include hints towards new cosmetics, emotes, pickaxes, and more.

Fortnite fans like to check out all the latest leaks in order to find out if there is a skin or item dropping in the Item Shop that they might want to save V-Bucks for.

Leaks are not official information, and there really is no way to predict what new additions are heading to Fortnite unless Epic makes an official comment or announcement.

Here are 5 items that were leaked, but never added into Fortnite:

Machine Pistol (Mini-Uzi)

The Mini Uzi looked similar to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s weapon.

Epic Games has added multiple iterations of the submachine gun by removing it, adding a silencer, and then creating a Compact SMG.

During Season 7 with patch v7.10, data miners found clues that a Machine Pistol might be headed to Fortnite.

The gun seemed similar to Call of Duty’s Mini Uzi from Modern Warfare 2.

High Infantry Rifle

The Infantry Rifle took over the Hunting Rifle, and was one of the most unpopular weapons across Season 7.

Fortnite leaker @KnapperigeLeaks was able to find Epic and Legendary Infantry Rifle files.

He posted a video on Twitter showing off the High Infantry Rifle and how it would look in-game.

Fortnite Founder’s Pickaxe

Fortnite players who purchased the Fortnite Founders Pack were gifted exclusive items and cosmetics that they could use in Battle Royale and Save the World.

It was rumored that Fortnite Founder’s would be able to unlock a special Founder’s Pickaxe.

During update v5.10, Save the World players were finally able to use their cosmetics in Battle Royale with the Legendary Warpaint and Rose Team Leader skins.

A leak pointed towards another exclusive being available for Founder owners, a Fortnite Founder’s Pickaxe.

Unfortunately, the files were removed during update v8.20, so we doubt this pickaxe will ever see the light of day.

Gun Game LTM

Epic Games has attempted to take inspiration from Call of Duty numerous times by creating their own weapons and modes based off some of Call of Duty’s greatest.

Leakers found evidence pointing towards a Gun Game LTM in Fortnite.

Some leaks pointed towards one of Call of Duty’s most popular modes getting the Fortnite treatment – a Gun Game LTM.

According to the leak, players would need to eliminate enemies in order to upgrade their gun.

The mode has yet to be announced, but leakers were able to find some in-game code for a reversed Gun Game LTM in Season 8.

Carrot Consumable

Consumable food items found around the Fortnite map are incredibly vital and can possibly save your life.

Apples and Mushrooms were the first consumables available, with the former healing health and the latter healing shield health.

It was believed that Carrots would be a new food consumable in Fortnite, but it never arrived.

Some leaks hinted towards the arrival of a Carrot food consumable, but it never came to fruition.

Easter is around the corner later this month in April, so maybe now would be a good time to add them into the game for a holiday celebration.

Fortnite leaks are not always reliable as Epic has previously added fluff code, or left over code from old developments.

The only way to confirm leaks are if we hear a comment from Epic directly, or we just have to wait for them to arrive in-game.

How to unlock the Armored Kratos style in Fortnite

Kratos from God of War has made it to Fortnite. Find out how to unlock the Armored Kratos style for free in Season 5.

Published

Kratos has landed on the Fortnite island, but his single style isn’t his only form. Here’s how to unlock his Armored outfit.

After a full season worth of crossovers, Epic slowed things down with Fortnite Season 5. The new season was released with only one crossover character in the roster: The Mandalorian.

It only took a couple of days for Epic to add to their Season 5 crossover roster. On December 3, Kratos from God of War came to the Item Shop. This preceeds the rumored addition of Master Chief from the Halo franchise.

Although God of War is a Playstation exclusive video game, players on all platforms could grab Kratos and his skin pack. You know that Sony had to do something for their console owners, however.

PlayStation players who play a single game with the Kratos skin will unlock the Armored Kratos style for their skin – it’s as simple as that.

Unfortunately, Android, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players will need to stick to the standard Kratos outfit – unless you have a PS5 lying around.

If you don’t have a PlayStation on-hand, the only option you have is to ask a trustworthy friend to log onto your account and play a game for you. Giving out your account information is risky and usually a bad idea, so proceed with caution.

Hopefully for Xbox players, Microsoft will have the same deal with Epic Games when Master Chief comes to the Item Shop. He’s one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming and will probably be a popular pick on all platforms.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Glitches

Game-breaking bug causing invisibility/God Mode in Fortnite Season 5

Players have already found a game-breaking glitch in Fortnite Season 5, causing players to go invisible and become invulnerable to damage.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 wasn’t released bug-free. In fact, there’s already a game-breaking bug causing players to become invisible and invulnerable to damage.

Every major update in almost every video game brings a few bugs with it, and Fortnite is no different. This is almost always the case when video games add new mechanics, as Fortnite did with Season 5.

This game-breaking bug has to do with the new sand mechanic. For those who don’t know, the center of the Fortnite island is now covered with quicksand. If you stand on the sand for too long, it sinks you in.

The quicksand isn’t a bad thing. It can actually benefit players, offering a hiding spot and increased movement speed, as seen below.

However, on the flip side, it’s also causing a bug that makes players invisible and invulnerable to damage. This isn’t the first invisibility glitch we’ve seen in Fortnite. Older patches had the same issue with Port-A-Potties.

This glitch appears to be more prevalent than the previous ones, however. We’ve seen several reports of this happening to players – sometimes even multiple times in a single play session. The Port-A-Potty glitch required more intention on the part of the players involved.

Hopefully, Epic get this sorted sooner rather than later. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the sand-sinking mechanic disabled ahead of the next update if Epic can’t push a hotfix to address the problem.

We don’t know whether this glitch is intentional on the part of infracting players or if there’s a method to trigger the issue. We’ll let you know when we find out more about the problem.
