Today is the day! Fortnite Season 4 is here. With it, comes a brand new Battle Pass with new skins, gliders, emotes, loading screens, pickaxes, and more. As expected, almost all of these Battle Pass cosmetics relate to the Marvel crossover.
The servers are still down at the time of writing, but data miner Hypex was quick to leak all of the in-game cosmetics as soon as the Season 4 trailer finished playing. Speaking of that, you can take a look at the trailer below.
Again, we don’t have access to the full Fortnite Battle Pass just yet. For now, we’re going with the in-game leaks from ShiinaBR, m1fnbr, and Hypex.
We’ll make sure to update this post as soon as the servers open up and we’re able to capture the entire Battle Pass. Until then, this will have to do.
Update: ShiinaBR and m1fnbr have leaked the full Battle Pass. Here it is!
We’re excited to jump in and get our first win of the season. Speaking of that, we have a look at the new umbrella that we’ll get for winning. This is the best-looking one that we’ve seen in a while, in our opinion.
We’ll keep you posted with everything you need to know about the new Fortnite season, so make sure to stay tuned. Good luck to everyone grinding for their first win this morning!
Leaked Rocket League POI coming to Fortnite soon
A Fortnite leak revealed a new Rocket League POI that could be coming to the game any day now.
Epic Games made some waves in the gaming community when they acquired Rocket League developer, Psyonix. They made their mark on the game almost immediately and started positioning Rocket League’s monetization to mirror that of Fortnite.
Part of that game was to make Rocket League free-to-play, which has finally happened after months of anticipation. Naturally, Epic celebrated the move with a Fortnite collaboration – bringing players from two of their biggest games together.
The collaboration includes cosmetic rewards for both Fortnite and Rocket League. You can take a look at how to unlock all of those challenges here and get started right after reading.
According to Fortnite data miners, we’ll also see a Rocket League POI entering Fortnite in the near future. This new building will include some Rocket League posters, trophies, and more. We don’t know where or when it will pop up, but we can expect it to come to Fortnite over the weekend – possibly during the Birthday update.
We thought that this location may already be in Fortnite following the maintenance patch, but looked around and saw nothing new. We’ll keep you posted when it does enter the game, though, as it could be here any day now.
In the meantime, playing Rocket League for the first time is worth a try. It’s one of the most unique and competitive games out there. Better yet, it’s free so there’s nothing to lose.
New Fortnite Battle Bus “Upgrade” leaked
Tony Stark is improving the Fortnite Battle Bus. Take a look at the leaked first version of the upgrade.
Fortnite Season 4 is finally giving players a taste of what it was like to play the game in Chapter 1. The updates aren’t coming at the same rapid clip as they were during the last chapter, but they’re steadily changing the game by adding new content every couple of weeks.
Yesterday’s update was a perfect example of this. It wasn’t as big as v14.10, which brought Stark Industries to the game, but it made significant changes in key areas of the map. The update also released Wolverine, who is the toughest boss that Fortnite has ever seen.
The map is progressively changing over the course of the season and we haven’t seen the last alteration. In fact, the map isn’t the only part of Fortnite that’s set for an overhaul as the season progresses.

Players who have had a chance to breathe in Stark Industries have noticed that Tony Stark appears to be making alterations to the Battle Bus. You can find one of the busses in his garage. It seems as though Stark wasn’t content with the plain old bus we’ve had since the early days of Fortnite.
Thanks to data miners, we already know how the upgraded Battle Bus will look when Tony Stark is finished with his first round of alterations.
There isn’t too much of a difference with this first stage, but we don’t expect Stark to stop there. By the end of the season, there’s a strong chance that the Battle Bus has its very own Iron Bus suit.
As you can see, the sound of the bus is also changing. It appears as though Stark is focusing on the performance of the bus before moving onto the cosmetics.
One interesting question that we have is: will this affect the speed of the bus? We assume that a more powerful engine would allow the bus to hit higher speeds. The speed probably won’t change due to game mechanics, but anything’s possible!
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about Tony Stark’s plan for the Battle Bus. We can expect to see this version of the bus come to Fortnite within the next two weeks.
Fortnite teasers point to Blade as the next in-game hero
All signs point to the daywalker, Blade, being the next Marvel hero in Fortnite Season 4.
The Fortnite Season 4 Marvel crossover is chugging along with the most recent update: v14.20. Epic brought Wolverine to the game along with his mythic hero ability. They also added Storm’s hero ability to the loot pool, which can be found at the Quinjet landing sites with the other standalone mythic abilities.
Now that most of the known hero abilities are in the game in some fashion, fans are wondering what will be next. This is only the second update of Chapter 2. We can’t be done yet; can we?
Of course not. In fact, Epic have been dishing out some massive teasers that point to Blade – Marvel’s resident vampire hunter – being the next hero in the lineup. The teasers began over the weekend with a tweet from Donald Mustard, cryptically quoting a Smashing Pumpkins song.
Most of the comments called this out for the teaser that it was, suggesting that Blade would be the next hero coming to Fortnite. In v14.20, Epic doubled-down on their Blade teasers.
In the patch notes email that Epic send to creators, they highlighted a few letters in red. These combine to spell “daywalker,” which is the name of the half-human/half-vampire characters in Marvel Comics. As you might guess, Blade is the most popular daywalker character in the lineup.
This teaser all but confirms Blade’s entrance into Fortnite. Of course, we still have a few questions about the details. Will he be a boss in Fortnite? Will we be able to use his abilities in-game? Will he be a part of the Item Shop or a true secret skin? Only time will tell.
For now, we can expect to see Blade come to Fortnite within the next few weeks. He might be released before the next update, but that would mean that his skin is encrypted – no data miners have mentioned him, yet. Of course, we’ll let you know when we learn more.
