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.
Fortnite v16.20 leaked skins: Princess Fishstick, Aloy & more
New Fortnite leaks from the v16.20 patch reveal skins for Aloy, Princess Fishstick, and many more. Here are all of the leaks so far.
The Fortnite v16.20 patch is live, and brought some new leaked skins and cosmetics to the game. Here’s what we know.
It’s been two seasons since we first saw Princess Fishstick teased in a loading screen. Now, in the v16.20 patch, we finally have a leaked model for the skin.
Of course, she isn’t alone. We have a ton of new skin leaks to explore along with some updated bundles. Here are all of the new and updated skins that were leaked in v16.20.

We assume that these cosmetics will hit the Item Shop in the coming weeks. We already know that Aloy will be available on April 14 through the PlayStation exclusive Aloy Cup. You can view more details on that here.
We’ll keep you updated if data miners find any more leaked skins and cosmetics in the update. Until then, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.
Fortnite leak reveals upcoming crafting formulas
A new Fortnite leak reveals upcoming or scrapped crafting formulas we could see in the game as updates for Season 6 roll out.
Fortnite Season 6 brought crafting to the game, but it won’t stop with the original formulas. As expected, Epic have plans for future crafting items.
Epic Games have been making huge steps in the Fortnite world with their recent seasons. Season 5 introduced NPCs and quests to the game, and now Season 6 has brought crafting to Fortnite.
We have a handful of simple, easy-to-understand crafting formulas to start. Nobody expects the crafting system to end here, however. New leaks reinforce that idea, with some future crafting formulas revealed.
Leaked crafting formulas
Fortnite data miner, Hypex, recently revealed some crafting formulas that he found in the game files. As he said in a tweet, these could be scrapped concepts that Epic abandoned or future craftable items that will come to the game in the future.
We don’t have names for these items, but they’re all variations of the bow. According to these leaks, a Spicy Fish or Pepper combined with a Primal Bow would create a Fire Bow. A Hop Fish and a Mechanical Bow will create a Hop Bow – seemingly similar to the Impulse Bow we have now.
The Hop Bow would be a take-it-or-leave-it concept, in our opinion. The Fire Bow, on the other hand, could cause some serious Havoc in Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. The Stink Bow is already under some scrutiny, and a Fire Bow would only add to the frustration in this department.

Whether or not these items come to the game, we can be sure that Epic will continue to expand the crafting system as Season 6 goes on.
Fans have already thought of some brilliant concepts involving the Tac Shotgun, a Rift-to-Go, Launch Pads, and many other fan-favorite items that could enter the crafting system. Hopefully, many of these ideas are realized in Season 6 and beyond.
Fortnite leak reveals more Junk Gun & Unstable Bow details
The Fortnite v16.10 update contained two new weapon leaks for Season 6: the Unstable Bow and Junk Gun. Here’s what we know.
Two new weapons are coming to Fortnite Season 6: the Junk Gun and the Unstable Bow. Here’s everything we know so far.
The Fortnite v16.10 update is here, bringing Raptors, balance changes, and more to Fortnite for the first time in Season 6.
Two new weapons were also leaked with this update: the Junk Gun and the Unstable Bow. We expect to see both of these weapons enter the game in the next few weeks. Here’s what we know about both of them, so far.
Based on the fact that images and stats entered the game for the Junk Gun, we assume that it will be entering Fortnite in the next update, if not before then.

The weapon will take a new kind of ammo, called “Junk.” We don’t know exactly what this will be, but we assume it will have something to do with the Bones and Metal parts we currently use for crafting.
Here are the stats for the upcoming Junk Gun thanks to data miner, Hypex.
- Ammo: Junk
- Reload time: 2 seconds
- Mag size: 3
- Damage to player: 76/79/83
The Unstable Bow, unlike the Junk Gun, is expected to be of Exotic rarity – meaning you’ll only be able to get your hands on it by buying it from an NPC. According to the leaks, Rebirth Raven will be selling players the Unstable Bow.

We don’t have specific stats or images for the Unstable Bow, but we do know a bit about it. According to what data miners found in the game files, the Unstable Bow will cause a “glitch” effect to players who are hit by it. We probably won’t know too much more until the weapon is released.
Again, we expect to see the Junk Gun enter Fortnite before the Unstable Bow. The former could even come before the v16.20 update goes live.
We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about either of these weapons or anything else leaked for Fortnite Season 6. Make sure to follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.
