Fortnite Season 5 is the season of crossovers. One new leak suggests that the next crossover could return to Fortnite’s first-ever collaboration, bringing a Thanos skin to the game.

Fortnite players probably haven’t thought of Thanos in a long time, but he was the centerpiece of the first-ever Fortnite crossover event. Epic Games teamed up with Marvel Studios to release the first Fortnite X Avengers crossover before the release of the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War.

Back then, before the days of LTMs, we had the Infinity Gauntlet fall from the sky in the base Fortnite mode, allowing players to transform into Thanos and destroy the lobby. This was the original version of the Infinity Blade.

The next year, before Endgame released, Epic had another Avengers crossover – this time with an LTM attached. Both modes were generally well-received by the Fortnite community.

Since then, we’ve seen countless skins and crossovers added to Fortnite. This season, Chapter 2 Season 5, has presented more crossovers than ever before.

We’ve also started to get larger skins than we had back in the day. Rippley, Big Chuggus, and other Fortnite skins have broken the mold by offering larger, buffer outfits.

This has led a lot of players to wonder, why we never got a Thanos skin. Well, new leaks suggest that this could be a possibility in Season 5

. According to Fortnite data miner, Man0e, an animation for an extra-large male skin was added to Fortnite in v15.40. “Oddly enough though,” he wrote, “the only XL male skin that currently exists is Thanos.”

Of course, we don’t know whether or not this skin will be Thanos, but the addition of the Titan would make a lot of sense. Season 5 has had more crossovers than any season, and we could see Epic bringing him back as a Bounty Hunter.

What’s more, adding a Thanos skin is now possible, thanks to the several other XL skins we already have. Thanos wouldn’t need to be much bigger than Big Chuggus or Rippley.

This is only speculation and we won’t know more until the next patch or until Epic release an official teaser. Fingers crossed that Thanos makes his way back to Fortnite by way of the Item Shop.

The latest teaser for Fortnite Season 7 reveals a Rick and Morty crossover in the form of the butter passing robot.

Fortnite Season 7’s latest teaser video revealed an upcoming crossover with the popular animated show Rick and Morty.

With less than a day to go before the start of Fortnite Season 7, the last teaser video for the season was posted. It showed another futuristic alien weapon, a space-themed helmet, and a small robot holding a tray of butter.

The helmet’s description makes it seem as if armor will be introduced in Season 7. The alien weapon seems like a ray gun of some sort that’s effective against people. However, it has less of an effect on builds and vehicles. The robot’s description is a little less telling, but its appearance is very familiar.

Rick & Morty crossover teased

The small robot holding a tray of butter is from the hit animated TV show Rick & Morty. The clip below is from the episode where the butter robot is introduced. He asks Rick what his purpose is, to which Rick replies his only purpose is to pass the butter.

It’s hard to say what the crossover could entail. We could be getting various Rick & Morty skins or other cosmetics. The butter robot could be one of the rumored charms players are suspecting. However, it doesn’t seem like the butter bot will have any actual use.

The robot’s description reads, “Results of transportation bot test: -Transporting various weaponry – Failed -Transporting documents & schematics – Failed -Transporting bone modification liquid – Satisfactory.” The bone modification liquid is in reference to the first Season 7 teaser. Milk cartons are likely to be added as consumable items.

With less than 24 hours until the start of Season 7, we won’t have to wait long to see what the Rick and Morty crossover entails. Hopefully, players will be able to dress as Uncle Rick and fire laser weapons at opposing players. Regardless, we now know it’s coming and it’s only a few hours away.

Bella Poarch has risen to fame on TikTok and has recently debuted her first music video ‘Build a B*tch’. According to leaks from the Fortnite v16.50 update, Poarch is getting an Icon Series emote featuring her hit single.

On TikTok, Bella Poarch posts content to 69.7M followers and averages tens of millions of views on each video. Her popularity has followed her to YouTube where Poarch has 2.8M subscribers. Like other internet stars such as Dixie D’Amelio and Addison Rae, Poarch has tried something different and released her first-ever music video.

The ‘Build a B*tch’ music video has over 98.6M views at the time of reporting with a whopping 6M likes on YouTube. These are incredibly impressive numbers, especially for an internet star like Bella Poarch. It’s no wonder that Fortnite would want to include one of TikTok’s most prolific creators in the Icon Series.

Bella Poarch’s Icon Series emote

ShiinaBR on Twitter was the first to report that a new Icon Series emote featuring Bella Poarch would be added to Fortnite. HYPEX, another notable Fortnite leaker, stated that the emote would most likely be related to ‘Build a B*tch’ because of its description. It reads, “I’m not built for you. Dance moves by Bella Poarch.”

While the music video tells more of a dystopian story, there are a few bits of choreography that the emote could be inspired by. The breakdown that begins at 1:53 features a robotic dance session that would make for a perfect emote. A better look at what the emote could possibly entail was posted by another Fortnite leaker FitzyLeaks.

The Bella Poarch emote likely won’t include the song’s chorus due to its offensive language. However, the song’s breakdown would be the best fit for the emote since it is one of the only portions of the video that features dancing.

Until the emote is datamined or released, we will have to continue to speculate what it could look like. Players can expect the emote to be revealed in the next few days. The ‘Build a B*tch’ emote is a huge achievement for Bella Poarch and a stepping stone for similar creators.

fortnite potential collab survey

Epic Games has sent out another survey to some players asking which brands they would be most interested to see Fortnite collab with. This survey lists a number of shows, movies, and musical artists that could be upcoming Fortnite collaborations.

Fortnite sends out surveys every once in a while to gauge interest in upcoming content. The Monthly Crew Pack was one such project that was leaked before its announcement thanks to surveys. As well, players were recently sent potential skin designs to choose from.

Now, Epic has sent out another survey asking players to select which brands, superstars, athletes, and video game characters they are familiar with. This is likely to gauge the notoriety of each potential crossover. The options that have the most popularity could potentially be upcoming Fortnite collaborations.

Survey leaks potential Fortnite collaborations

The survey was originally leaked by Twitter user RyderFromGTA and a full list of potential collabs was posted by HYPEX. The survey was broken down into nine different sections each with its own theme. The sections were Professional Athletes, Video Game Characters, Pop Culture Characters & Brands, Professional Sports Clubs/Teams, Comic Book Characters, TV Shows, Movies, Content Creators, and Actors/Performers.

Each section housed a number of choices including several speculated or scrapped crossovers. Samus Aran, Family Guy, and Naruto all appeared on the list after having been leaked during the Fortnite vs Apple trial. There were also characters that have already appeared in-game such as The Mandalorian and Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn.

Some off-the-wall options included South Park, Pewdiepie, and Pinky and The Brain. These options appearing on the list does not mean they are upcoming Fortnite collaborations. In fact, even some of the most popular options may not be feasible crossovers. However, this list does give players insight into what Epic Games could be planning for the future of Fortnite.

We would love to know which of these crossovers you’d like to see make it into Fortnite. Let us know by leaving a comment down below and maybe even the wildest crossovers will be a part of Donald Mustard’s Metaverse.
