Fortnite leak reveals some cool new NPC functions for Season 5

A new Fortnite leak suggests that we’ll soon be able to trade with NPCs, buy Supply Drops, and more.

A new Fortnite leak suggests that Epic could be adding features to NPCs in the future, including the ability to buy your loot for gold.

The NPCs, quest system, and Gold Bar currency have been the biggest additions to Fortnite Season 5 outside of the new locations. It was a fresh take on the existing format, borrowing some elements from other popular titles.

So far, the Gold system has some strengths and weaknesses. The new currency makes buying Exotic weapons feel like a privilege, rather than something you see in every game.

On the other hand, upgrading weapons can be a chore with the removal of Upgrade Benches, requiring you to spend a lot of Gold and search for specific NPCs.

Leaked NPC services coming soon

As expected, Epic haven’t finished tweaking the Fortnite NPCs and what they offer players. According a leak from Hypex, we may see some added NPC services in the near future.

The two that Hypex mentioned by name were the ability to buy loot from players and to call Supply Drops for 600 Gold.

600 Gold might be a little steep, but the idea of selling a Legendary Pistol to an NPC for some extra funds is a great one. Supply Drops would be random, but they’d give you a guaranteed healing or mobility item if you’re desperate.

Both of these concepts could come to the game in the future, and they show us that Epic are working on future services for NPCs past Season 5. It looks like these characters are here to stay – at least, for a while.

Events

Fortnite Winter Trials event & rewards leaked

Epic Games quickly added and removed a webpage that revealed a new Fortnite event: Winter Trials. Here’s everything we know so far.

Epic Games released a new website, announcing the Fortnite Winter Trials. They have since removed the site, leading fans to believe it was leaked early.

Most of the time, when we’re discussing Fortnite leaks, we’re talking about data miners finding files in the game that relate to certain events, skins, etc. In rare cases, Epic let something slip a bit early. That’s what we have here.

On January 25, Epic released the Fortnite Winter Trials webpage, showcasing free rewards, an influencer tournament, community voting on events, and more.

The website was quickly removed after it was added, but data miner Hypex was able to record some of the contents before it went down.

The details of the event are still limited, but it appears as though players will be earning badges for logging in, voting for challenges, and playing Fortnite.

Over the course of the rest of the season, your playtime and badges will reward you with free cosmetics. Most of them are hidden, but we know about a spray, emoticon, and weapon wrap from the images on the website.

We should see an official announcement of the event soon. Since Epic were the ones who jumped the gun, we expect to see them announce the event as soon as tomorrow – if not later tonight.

We’ll update this post when we learn more about the event, along with additional details on how to earn free cosmetics. Stay tuned.

Fortnite tease new Drift Crew skins

Published

on

Epic Games are dropping some cryptic hints relating to the iconic Drift character in Fortnite, and speculation suggests it’s all leading to a new Drift Crew skin.

On January 24, Epic Games posted a series of mysterious tweets, to get the community guessing.

Their first post referenced Drift directly, saying: “Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” A series of messages followed, asking for help – presumably Drift’s help.

The Fortnite account has since deleted the tweets, but here’s a screenshot of all of them from iFireMonkey.

Data miner HYPEX was quick to highlight that these teasers are almost certainly connected to the upcoming new Drift Skin, which appears to be a female version of the fan-favorite skin.

Fortnite Crew is the monthly subscription service, and it’s expected that this new Drift skin will be included in the February edition of the subscription rewards.

Fortnite Monthly Crew Pack
The Fortnite Crew subscription includes V-Bucks plus cosmetic rewards.

The subscription grants players each new Battle Pass, plus 1,000 V-Bucks, in addition to the cosmetic rewards.

We’ll have to wait and see confirmation about the new Drift skin as we put January in the rearview mirror and move into February.

Fortnite Terminator T-800 & Sarah Connor skins leaked

It’s official: both Sarah Connor and T-800 are headed to the Fortnite Item Shop. The PlayStation store leaked them early.

Fortnite Season 5 is bringing another crossover to the game, this time with The Terminator and Sarah Conner.

The PlayStation Store is at it again with the Fortnite leaks, this time providing an early look at the two upcoming Terminator skins that should be available soon. Since Sony jumped the gun, we can expect to see these skins in the Item Shop as early as tonight.

In case you missed it, fans began speculating about a Fortnite X Terminator crossover when Predator first came to the game. A new Bounty Hunter Portal opened on the island and showed an image that was directly brought from the second Terminator movie.

On January 20, the official Fortnite account confirmed the crossover with a transmission, which you can listen to below.

At this point, all signs pointed to a Sarah Conner skin, but not to the T-800 (or Terminator) skin, itself. A Terminator crossover without The Terminator would seem a bit dull, but our worriers were curbed later in the day.

Several data miners and leakers reported seeing a new tab on the PlayStation store, advertising a new Terminator skin bundle. This bundle included both Sarah Connor and T-800, which is great news for fans of the film franchise.

Again, we can expect to see this skin hit the Item Shop as soon as tonight. Sony is no stranger to early Fortnite leaks, but they tend to leak them close to their official release date.

Will you be grabbing this skin for yourself? Let us know on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.
