Epic Games teases Ghoul Trooper return

Fortnite fans have been asking for the Ghoul Trooper skin to return to the item shop for almost two years. That time may finally be here.



Fortnite fans have been asking for the Ghoul Trooper skin to return to the item shop for almost two years. That time may finally be here.

The Fortnite Ghoul Trooper skin is one of the last OG skins in the game. Epic has re-released almost all of their original skins, save for the Renegade Raider and the Ghoul Trooper.

Everyone who bought the Ghoul Trooper two years ago wants it to stay that way. Almost everyone else wants to see the Ghoul Trooper return to the shop. Epic brought the Skull Trooper back last Halloween, so most fans assumed they’d bring us the Ghoul Trooper this year.

These assumptions were further validated when data miners found a new variant for the Ghoul Trooper in the game files. Owners of the Ghoul Trooper would be awarded this updated style:

Fans started responding to every Fortnite Tweet, “Release the Ghoul Trooper,” once this variant was found. It seemed like only a matter of time before Epic finally relented and gave us the Ghoul Trooper.

Today, October 30, Epic tweeted an image that could only mean one thing: the Ghoul Trooper is making its long-awaited return of Fortnite Battle Royale.

The glove, the markings on the arm, the lack of context. It’s the Ghoul Trooper.

As for the variant, it’s unclear whether or not it will be exclusive to those who already own the skin. Epic provided a similar option when the Skull Trooper was re-released last year. Owners who bought it back in the day have exclusive access to the purple style.

Skins like the Ghoul Trooper lose some of their value when they get re-released to the public. Ghoul Troopers are intimidating right now, but won’t be as scary once they become one of the most popular skins in the game.

What do you think? Will you be buying the Ghoul Trooper when it returns to the Item Shop? Let us know in the comments.


How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.



Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.



Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
