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.

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.

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.

Newly-added Exotics (Update)

February 24 Exotic Shuffle (Update)

On February 24, Epic shuffled some of the original and new Exotic weapon locations, giving them to new NPCs across the Fortnite map. The Storm Scout Sniper, Nighthawk Revolver, and Hop Rock Dualies now have new homes. You can view them on the map, below.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic shuffle the locations once again, so we’ll update this map and article if we see any more changes.

Here are all locations of Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold for the Fortnite Season 5 challenges.

Fortnite Fishstick Shot at love

One Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenge requires players to collect Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s where you need to go.

This week’s Fortnite challenges are a lot more difficult than ones we’ve seen in the recent past. We have to search several specific locations to help Fishstick find love and, more importantly, earn some XP.

Here are all of the Grimbles love potion locations in Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, and Stealthy Stronghold. You only need to find one, so this guide should help.

Fortnite Fishstick

Grimble’s love potion locations

You can find one love potion in each Coral Cove, Stealthy Stronghold, and Fort Crumpet.

The first, in Fort Crumpet, can be found on the bottom floor of the fort in a roped-off room. The Coral Cove potion is located behind the main building of the unnamed POI.

In Stealthy Stronghold, the potion is located in the middle of the POI, next to a chest in one of the ruins. Here’s a map that should help you out.

Deliver the love potion to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town

Once you find the love potion, you need to deliver it to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town. The easiest place to visit is Slurpy Swamp.

Here, you’ll find the location in that boxed-room that houses slurp barrels and a Teddy bear sitting on a chair. Frequent visitors of Slurpy Swamp should know the location all too well. All you need to do is interact with the love potion and receive your XP.

This is a difficult week of challenges for Fortnite players, but the XP is well worth the grind. You can take a look at the rest of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenges here.

Streamer

Ninja goes off on the Fortnite community after getting stream sniped

Ninja returned to Fortnite to find the same old stream snipers. As expected, he gave them a piece of his mind.

Published

Ninja sounded off on stream snipers in the Fortnite community during one of his recent streams.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the primary streamers who helped Fortnite rise to the height of popularity we see it today. He’s stepped away from the game of late but often comes back to play a few rounds between his Valorant streams.

Although Ninja doesn’t take Fortnite as seriously as he once did, he still faces a large number of stream snipers who want to eliminate him for clout. Ninja has always been outspoken about stream snipers but went all-in during one of his recent Fortnite streams.

“The community – these little f***ing kids – It’s so dumb. It really is,” Ninja vented. “And the thing is, these little clout chasing losers have no idea, man. All they’re doing is harming the game. Because I’m not gonna play it. I’m not gonna stream it.”

(Clip begins at 3:38)

“Good for you, man. Get your f***ing clip, send it to your buddies,” Ninja continued. “‘We killed Ninja!’ I haven’t played the game in – ever. I don’t play it anymore. I come back and I still almost kill all of you idiots.”

Ninja went on to say that it must be far worse for players like Bugha, who won the Fortnite World Cup. If stream sniping is bad for someone like Ninja, then it must be far worse for an actual top competitive Fortnite player.

Ninja has done a lot of good for the Fortnite community, helping it become one of the biggest games of all time. Stream snipers may be a part of the reason he doesn’t play as much as he once did.

We don’t think Ninja will completely stop playing Fortnite, but the constant stream sniping is clearly getting to him. Hopefully, this doesn’t dissuade Ninja from continuing to experience the fun side of Fortnite.
