If you have been active in Fortnite communities around the web, you may have seen jokes about a covered bridge in Fortnite.
The origination of this meme was a page in a book titled “Hacks for Fortniters: An unofficial guide to tips and tricks that other guides won’t teach you.”
Honestly just calling people “Fortniters” was probably the only red flag you needed. The book is still on sale for $9.99 and actually features more positive reviews than negative ones.
The page that has been memed for the last week was a section on how to cross a river in the best way possible.
Posted by VaydaRS, the picture rose to one of the top posts on /r/FortniteBR over the last month.
These high-level strats are not for the faint of heart. It is crucial to raise your bridge over the river for absolutely no reason at all. Spending 150 mats on a covered bridge seems like a brilliant use of resources as well.
As one can expect, the Fortnite community has taken off with these tips and began adding the vaunted covered bridge strat to their own games.
Sword_Warrior124 took the covered bridge event further by adding a radar tower to the top. They are basically invincible now.

Jacobbadiei shows us the only actually useful time to ever use a covered bridge in a match.
What happens when you take the port-a-fort and instead have it make a covered bridge? It still goes unused.
Oh wait, what’s this? Ocean-manfan actually found a logical reason to use a bridge. You even need to raise it to protect from the lava. The author of the book must have been predicting the volcano, truly 3000 IQ.
Thank god for the lava, I was worried that my adversaries could have used my bridge to hunt me down. from r/FortNiteBR
And now, by far the most impressive, someone apparently filled all their mats to full and did a massive covered-bridge skybridge. Honestly, it’s truly a glorious creation.
Now I’m torn whether to not give this author any of my money, or to buy the book as a prank gift for my brother’s upcoming birthday. It’s a tough decision..
Fortnite v15.20 patch notes: Hop Rock Dualies, New & Unvaulted weapons
Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes.
Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes. While official patch notes are hard to come by these days, we’ve rounded up all of the new content.
The last few weeks in Fortnite have went by without many big tweaks to the gameplay experience, and certainly a lack of new skins and cosmetics compared to times gone by.
However, a whole host of new outfits have been leaked and that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this weekly update. A new Predator crossover has also been uncovered by dataminers, meaning Predator could soon arrive in-game – with a new ship, banner, and spray leaked.
Those are, of course, unconfirmed changes though, so let’s take a look at everything we’re certain of.
Fortnite v15.20 patch notes
Hop Rock Dualies
A new set of dual pistols have arrived in Fortnite, as seen below in a tweet from VastBlast.
New & Unvaulted weapons/items
There’s four new weapons and items coming into the loot pool (well, unvaulted as well) – seen below. This was also confirmed by VastBlast.
- Legendary Tactical Assault Rifle
- Rare Tactical Assault Rifle (All Rarities)
- Lever Action Shotgun
- Uncommon Snowy Flopper
At first, the leaker thought this Sawed Shotgun was going to be headed solely for Save the World, but it’s since been confirmed to be part of the update.
Some adjustments have been made to the Pre-Edits Option. Now, with ‘Disable Pre-Edits On,’ all player-built structures can’t be edited until they’re placed.

- Broken Pickaxe animations.

Fortnite x Predator crossover leaked: First look at ship, spray & banner
Fortnite has been adding a number of hunters since The Mandalorian first landed on the island, and it looks like Predator might be next – if leaks are accurate.
The game has seen some insane crossovers in the last year or two, including those from the DC Comics, Marvel and Star Wars universes.
Well, next on that list might be one of the deadliest extraterrestrial attackers.
On January 13, following the v15.20 update, dataminer Lucas7Yoshi revealed a new ‘Nightmare Ship’ leak for Fortnite.

As you can see, this is the ship of Predator, from the movie series that started in 1987.
Fortnite Predator ship, spray & banner leaked
Not only that, but VastBlast has doubled down on that with a new spray leak, which clearly shows Predator is on the way in some shape or form.
Based on the arrival of Mando in his Star Wars ship, we can likely expect to see Predator join the action soon as a boss on the map – just like other NPCs that have been added during the season.
Once we have more information, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Fortnite v15.20 leaked skins & cosmetics: Ruby Shadows, Orin, Bundles
Epic Games are adding a whole new set of Fortnite skins and cosmetics to the game with the v15.20 update.
A number of brand new Fortnite skins and cosmetics have leaked following the v15.20 update in Epic Games’ battle royale title.
The game has undergone some huge changes during the course of Season 5, with The Mandalorian crossover seeing more outfits from the world of Star Wars arrive in the Fortnite Item Shop and Battle Pass rewards.
Now, however, even more are set to be added to the game after the January 13 content refresh.
The weekly update has shaken things up once again, so let’s take a look at all of the exciting skins and cosmetics to have leaked so far.
Fortnite v15.20 leaked skins
Confirmed by leaker Lucas7Yoshi, there’s three skins included in the patch. When they will be released, however, is unconfirmed at the time of writing.
Fortnite v15.20 leaked cosmetics
Aside from those three skins – named Ruby Shadows, Orin, and Tess – a plethora of cosmetics we’ve never seen before have been leaked as well.
Lucas7Yoshi revealed the following graphic just moments after the patch went live…
The dataminer also revealed, as seen in the tweet below, that two other gliders are heading into the game as well.
Two Bundles leaked
Last, but certainly not least, two skin bundles have also been uncovered by the dataminer – seen below.
These will be called the Tess bundle and MACHINIST MINA pack.
