All Fortnite skins & cosmetics leaked for Travis Scott event

Published

on

The V12.41 Update patch is now live in Fortnite – which means that leakers have also been able to get their hands on a few of the upcoming cosmetics you can expect to see in-game. 

With Epic Games confirming that Grammy-nominated rap artist Travis Scott will head up their next in-game live event – well, multiple live events – the Astroworld rapper is becoming the focus of things moving forward.

It has been confirmed that the Astronomical concert events will kick off on Friday, April 23 with fans having the chance to witness new music, complete new challenges, and even grab some free cosmetics. Though, it appears as there will plenty of others that they can get their hands on too.

Fortnite V12.41 update leaked skins

Following the V12.41 update, popular leaker Lucas7Yoshi revealed that there are three all-new skins coming soon – with two focusing on Travis Scott and the Icon Series. They are called, unsurprisingly, Travis Scott and Astro Jack.

There is also the new Rue skin – another secret agent looking character – as well as a new style for the popular Power Chord skin and her accompanying guitar.

Fortnite x Travis Scott leaked cosmetics

Aside from a back bling and harvesting tool for Rue – as well as the skin styles for Power Chord – all of the leaked cosmetics are for the Travis Scott and Astronomical event.

Fans will be able to grab two emotes of the rapper rocking out, as well as two pretty interesting back blings. There are also two new sprays, three loading screens, a weapon wrap, a pickaxe, and a Travis Scott themed glider coming. You can check them out below thanks to Lucas7Yoshi’s images.

Plenty of these cosmetics will be able to be bought from the item shop itself, while others will come from completing challenges and actually attending the Astronomical in-game event.

If any more skins, backblings, pickaxes, gliders, emotes, or sprays leak in the meantime, we’ll be sure to update this post immediately so you can get a look at them.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 challenges are here! Take a look at how to complete them.

It seems like just yesterday that we were staying up all night, waiting for the new season of Fortnite. Surprisingly, we’re already into Week 6 with another batch of challenges to help carry us through the Battle Pass.

Although weekly challenges offer a lower amount of XP this season, it seems like we’re working through the Battle Pass quicker than normal. Even still, we have a long way to go before we unlock all of our holographic variants, so we’ll be grinding away at these challenges.

The week’s challenges are pretty straightforward. All we need to do is consume some foraged items, deal some damage, and search some chests. Here are the challenges for Week 6:

  • Search Chests at Weeping Woods (7)
  • Eliminations at Misty Meadows (3)
  • Collect Stone from Coral Castle (300)
  • Consume a Legendary Fish
  • Consume Foraged Items at Holly Hedges (10)
  • Ride a Zipline from Retail Row to Steamy Stacks
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Slurpy Swamp (500)

The inclusion of a challenge involving Black Panther’s ability suggests that we could see it come into the base game this week, but we don’t know that for sure. Epic could be pushing us toward the Marvel-based LTMs that have been rotating in and out of the game. We’ll know more when these challenges go live, tomorrow.

Collecting foraged items at Holly Hedges is as easy as taking some damage in Team Rumble and eating the Cabbage that is growing in the backyards of a few houses.

If you’re having trouble catching a legendary fish, take a look at our fishing guide for Season 4. You should be able to catch one if you hit a fishing hole with a Pro Fishing Rod – but this one will take a bit of persistence.

There’s a zipline network that connects Steamy Stacks and Retail Row, so you just have to ride this once and be done with it.

Apart from that, the rest of these challenges are straightforward. Of course, you’ll also need to land at Weeping, Slurpy, and Misty to get your chests, damage, and elimination. Good luck!

New esports org Gamma Gaming makes splash with Fortnite roster

A new organization, Gamma Gaming, has entered the professional Fortnite arena with some huge signings.

Published

Fortnite is, again, the driving force behind the creation of an esports organization – this time, in the European market. Gamma Gaming – established by Arsenal FC player, Sead Kolašinac – made a splash on the EU Fortnite scene by announcing the acquisition of six Fortnite players on September 27.

The announcement included some of the hottest professional free agents in the region: Th0masHD, Kami, Tschinken, and Merijn along with content creators Obitoo and Mambo.

The most noteworthy of these acquisitions is, likely, Th0masHD who qualified for the Fortnite World Cup, placed 4th in the recent Solo FNCS, won the BenjyFishy Cup, and, most recently, placed first and second in two of the FNCS Warmup competitions.

Going into the Season 4 Trios FNCS, he and his team are one of the top picks to win it all.

Gamma Gaming’s model follows that of another new organization, One Percent, which has built its foundation on the back of their professional Fortnite lineup. The young org will, undoubtedly, branch out from here, but they’re starting with solid EU Fortnite talent.

With some strong European players on their team, it will be interesting to see where these new Gamma Gaming recruits land when the FNCS competition comes around. We have a new organization to keep our eyes on.

Fortnite leak reveals new SHIELD Henchmen coming soon

New Henchmen are coming to Fortnite, pointing to the spawn island helicarrier entering Fortnite as a POI.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 might be the most progressively evolving season of Chapter 2, so far. We’re getting the map evolution that we thought we’d get last season, this time with fan-favorite Marvel characters.

Players were split as to whether or not the Marvel crossover would be good for Fortnite. Now, five weeks in, it’s hard to argue that Season 4 isn’t the most entertaining season in the new chapter. Epic are keeping the game fresh and it’s bringing players back. There’s a reason that Ninja is playing Fortnite again, this season.

One of the map developments that hasn’t yet come to the game is a helicarrier appearing above the map. This is rumored to be the same helicarrier used as the Season 4 pregame island.

More recently, however, popular data miner, Hypex, revealed that there are unused Henchmen in the game files. These Henchmen are, reportedly, members of the Marvel Comics organization, SHIELD.

According to this leak, SHIELD is running the spawn island helicarrier as a base of operations. Another leaker, ShiinaBR, replied to Hypex’s tweet, linking these two pieces of information. His conclusion was that the SHIELD Henchmen will enter the game when the helicarrier moves over the map.

We’ve already seen several Fortnite creators like SypherPK and Ali-A make their way to the spawn island from a Battle Royale lobby. There’s a vault on this island, and they tested whether or not one of the keys that Doctor Doom or Iron Man carry will unlock it. As you might expect, their keys didn’t work.

All of this points to the idea that the current helicarrier – or spawn island – will, eventually, be a POI in Fortnite. We may have to build up to it or take a helicopter, making it one of the more exclusive places to loot. For now, all we can do is speculate – but we’ll let you know when we learn more.
