Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

In Fortnite v12.10, new files were added to the game that could bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

We have yet to see this in practice, but it appears as though Epic is prepping Fortnite for the expansion. We still don’t know if or when this will be coming.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what I’m talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Skins & exclusive console cosmetics leaked for Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite leaks reveal upcoming skins including a new Renegade Raider and Fishstick style.

We’re just over the halfway mark in Fortnite Season 4, but fans are already looking ahead to what the next season will hold. Today, October 1, the Fortnite data miner, Hypex, gave us the first small pieces of information about Fortnite Season 5.

These leaks include some confirmed and unconfirmed information that he received from an anonymous source. We assume that this is the same source that leaked Hypex some early – and accurate – information about Fortnite Season 4, so we’re leaning toward trusting this leak.

So far, Hypex has confirmed a “Ginger Renegade Raider, and an exclusive PS5 skin. He’s also speculating about a skin from concept artist Sharktoofs1 (creator of skins such as the Cozy Chomps and Boxy skins) along with an exclusive Xbox S skin.

A Ginger Renegade Raider skin would make sense for the next Fortnite season, as Season 5 will almost certainly run into the Christmas season. Renegade Raider is one of Fortnite’s most popular skin variants, and Epic have been giving it more attention, of late.

The concept comes from @Fercho_UwU and is about what you’d expect: Renegade Raider with some Gingerbread clothing.

The other skin concept that’s rumored to be coming to the game is “Giddy-Up Fishstick” from @sharktoofs1. That’s right; it looks like we’re going to get yet another Fishstick skin in Fortnite.

As we covered, above, Sharktoofs already has several popular skins in Fortnite, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see another one come into the game. This one is, simply, Fishstick riding the inflatable llama from the Giddyup skin.

As for the exclusive Xbox and PlayStation skins, these remain to be seen. Of course, these are only leaks and might not come to fruition. If this is the same source that Hypex had for his Season 4 leaks, however, there’s a good chance that they’re legitimate.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about all of these skins, although we’ll probably have to wait for a patch or two before data miners find them in the game files.

Challenges

Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

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

Published

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.
