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.

Lazy Lake Floating Ring locations for Fortnite Week 3 challenges

How to collect floating rings at Lazy Lake for the Season 3 Week 3 challenges.

Published

on

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 3 challenges are here, which means we’re getting closer and closer to unlocking the second half of the Season 3 Battle Pass. Most of the challenges have been relatively easy this season, with only one weekly challenge requiring us to search in a particular area.

Last week we were looking around The Yacht. This week we’re venturing across the map over to Lazy Lake, where we’ll need to collect floating rings.

These four rings are scattered around Lazy Lake, making it difficult to complete this challenge in one shot – at least, if you’re doing it in a regular Battle Royale match.

As always, we recommend opting for Team Rumble. It makes things easier, and you may even be able to finish your eliminations challenge from last week if you haven’t already. Here’s a map of all of the Floating Ring locations at Lazy Lake:

The most obvious ring is located next to the gas station. You should be able to jump on an umbrella to grab it. After that, make your way to the intersection and look on top of the tree. The third ring is in the street at the entrance to Lazy, and the final ring is in between the towers of the No Sweat Insurance building.

Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour that shows you exactly where you’ll need to visit.

You can take a look at the full list of challenges here, but the rest of them are easy enough to complete on your own. You may be sitting in the cornfield at Frenzy for a while, but that comes with the territory.

Lazy Lake fireworks location for Fortnite Captain America challenge

Published

on

When the Fortnite v13.20 patch released, Epic revealed that they’d be bringing a special hero to the Item Shop for the 4th of July. That hero was later revealed to be none other than Captain America – one of the core Avengers who we never saw during the initial Marvel crossover events.

Captain America is, reportedly, set to hit the Item Shop within the next rotation. He should be available when the Item Shop resets at 8 PM EST on July 2. We’re only hours away from having Cap in our locker, and he’ll probably be one of the most popular skins for the next week.

As you can see, there have already been plenty of official teasers for Captain America, but one of them went under the radar. When the Week 3 Challenges went live, Epic added a daily challenge that requires you to light fireworks around Lazy Lake. These fireworks explode to show the Captain America shield.

There are six firework locations surrounding this POI, but you only need five to complete the challenge. You can easily finish this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble once you know where to look. Here are all of the firework locations.

Fortnite Lazy Lake Fireworks

This challenge rewards players with 14,000 XP as it’s one of the golden daily challenges rather than a weekly challenge. That isn’t a ton of experience, but it’s a healthy reward for a challenge that will only take a few minuted to complete. Now, all that’s left is to see how the new Fortnite Captain America skin looks!

Concepts

This concept brings grilling to Fortnite in time for summer

This thematic addition to Fortnite Season 3 is perfect for Summer Splash.

Published

Fortnite Season 3 has put a new emphasis on food. Vegetable boxes spawn all across the map while players farm for cabbage and corn as a new way to heal. Most players are fans of this change. The more healing items in the game, the better.

Why stop there? Why not allow us to cook our food for additional HP? Well, one Fortnite player made a concept that allows us to do just that. Reddit user u/MapleSmoothie created a Hot Dog concept. You can find them in fridges and eat them raw, or grill them for greater healing power.

This concept, as its creator points out, would be a perfect addition to the Summer Splash event. Grilling and summertime go hand in hand, and Epic even have an existing emote to correspond with the mechanic.

We don’t need to stop with hot dogs, either. Epic could allow us to grill corn and add other meats like burgers and sausages. Some of them could even grant shields, allowing you to carry some food versions of Minis and Big Pots.

It’s probably too late for Epic to add this to Season 3. There’s a chance that we could see it next year, however. Epic have always welcomed community concepts with game mechanics and skins. This one would be a small, yet thematic addition that could bring a new element into the game.
