Fortnite leak reveals weapon mods coming to the game

Fortnite leaks have revealed a new mechanic coming to the game: weapon mods. Here’s how they’ll work and when you can expect them.

A Fortnite leak has revealed a new mechanic coming soon to the game: weapon mods.

Fortnite weapons have always been the cornerstone of the game. Building and editing might be the most important mechanics, but weapons have always dictated the meta of Fortnite and determined the most effective playstyles.

We’ve seen a ton of unique weapons come and go from Fortnite. Recently, Epic have shaken-up the shotgun meta by removing the Pump in favor of the Charge and new Dragon’s Breath and Lever-Action shotguns.

Epic aren’t stopping there, either. Data miner, Hypex, announced that weapon mods will be coming to Fortnite in the future.

It seems like certain weapons will have specific mods that will boost their effectiveness. If we had to guess, these mods would only work on high-rarity guns like the Scar and Gold Heavy ARs. Of course, this is only speculation.

The mod slot system may sound familiar to fans of Apex Legends. The way these mods are being described, they sound an awful lot like the mod slots in this popular BR.

This tweet isn’t confirmation that mods will be coming to the game in Season 5 – only that Epic are working on them. If you remember, we heard the news of NPCs in Fortnite long before Season 5, so mods could very well be a Season 6 mechanic we’re seeing early.

Mods would help to spice-up the loot pool and could even bring some new strategies to the game. We could see some under-used weapons like the Dragon’s Breath shotgun receive a massive buff with certain mods, such as one that increases the clip size.

This is already the case in Apex Legends, where weapons like the Prowler go from D to S-tier when you equip the accompanying weapon mod.

We’ll have to wait and see what becomes of weapon mods, but we’re not expecting to see them anytime soon. Season 5 has a lot going on, so it would make more sense for Epic to wait until Season 6 to bring this new mechanic to Fortnite. Only time will tell.

Fortnite leaks reveal another Stranger Things collab coming to Season 3

The Upside Down is set to collide with the loop once again as another Stranger Things collaboration is arriving to Fortnite soon. Here are more details about it.

STRANGER THINGS FORTNITE

The infamous collaboration between Stranger Things and Fortnite wasn’t as big when it was first introduced in Fortnite back in 2019. Loopers were disappointed by the cosmetics that the collab brought into the game but at present, it remains one of the rarest items in-game.

Fortnite is known for collaborating with popular culture films and TV shows pretty often and brings several characters from their respective franchises to the looped island. In the past, major characters like Star Lord (Marvel), Batman (The Dark Knight), Rick and Morty were added in the game as skins accompanied by their famous props as cosmetic items like Back Blings, Pickaxes and Gliders.

However, when it comes to major TV shows, Stranger Things was a phenomenon back in 2019 when its second season was underway. The show gained hype in its initial days as fans loved the entire 80s vibe of sci-fi and horror as the kids went against the Upside Down and save Hawkins.

The collab soon hit the Fortnite Item Shop but to the surprise of the player base, the only skins they received were an ugly looking Demogorgon and extremely buffed Chief Hopper skins, while they were expecting Eleven and the gang. However, latest leaks might bring good news to those fans and new skins into the game.

Fortnite skins are coming soon in Season 3 ahead of its finale release

According to several leaks that emerged after the recent v21.10 update in Fortnite Season 3, items like “WaffleWarrior” were added to the game files. Now according to theory, in the Stranger Things series, its protagonist Eleven is the only character who is extremely fond of Eggos Waffles.

The tag “WaffleWarrior” hints towards her and it might be the case that ahead of the release of Season 4 finale next week, Eleven could be an in-game skin that could be added to the shop soon. Moreover, it has nearly been 3 years since the skins from the Netflix series were last seen in the Item Shop.

However, fans are already creating crossover concepts of characters from both Fortnite and Stranger Things. Recently a concept artist by the name of Feraalsy created a video of Peely being possessed by Vecna.

The concept video shows Vecna’s skin concept as well as Prisoner Jones present alongside with Peely. Although it is a brilliant concept, the current hype of the series highly suggests a collaboration incoming to Fortnite soon later this season.

Fortnite leak reveals Zero Build Team Rumble coming to game soon

Fortnite is adding more fun to its Zero Build game mode as they plan to expand it to a fully fledged Team Rumble. Here’s the latest on it.

The popularity of a Zero Build Mode in Fortnite has been growing everyday with new players joining the looped island. Moreover, the mode promises a fun and casual side of the game that loopers had never experienced before.

Fortnite is known for introducing exciting new gameplay elements and its wide range of weapons arsenal to its player base. Though OG Sweats still like to stick to their old ways of cranking 90s and build fight their enemies across the loop, casual players are having their amount of fun in Zero Build mode where they purely focus on their combat skills.

Over the course of the past few months, the popularity of Zero Build mode has increased and has become a staple in the entire Battle Royale gaming community. Nobody would have ever imagined Fortnite without building, and here it stands tall with 5 million new active players since the addition of the game mode.

As loopers continue to vibe in Season 3 with all new things including Reality Tree and Ballers, certain leaks revealed that a popular casual game mode is about to be introduced with Zero Build mechanics very soon.

Zero Build to arrive in Team Rumble in Fortnite soon

According to leaks on social media, Epic Games are working on a Zero Build version of Team Rumble as data for Zero Build “Big Battle” LTM was added with the v21.10 update that dropped this Tuesday. Moreover, this mode will be a standalone mode alongside the regular team rumble and will have similar rules to the earlier one.

However, the question that stands in the minds of loopers is that how will players redeploy themselves if they cannot build themselves to a high ground. Team Rumble is all about infinite respawns in a match where two large teams go against one another and redeploy them off a high ground.

Moreover, when players thought Fortnite was a dead game and were done with most of the game mechanics and weapons meta, Zero Build came as a blessing and saw the return of several old players join back the game. Pros like TFUE, Dr. Disrespect and Ninja started streaming the game again and highly praised the Zero Build game mode.

However, the team rumble mode was the only game mode in Fortnite that was untouched by Zero Build as players like to practice their builds and fights in the island in that mode. But that will soon change for Zero Build players as well as they’d be able to test weapons, complete quests and have a casual fun time playing Fortnite on the island.

Fortnite leak shows Skateboards arriving in Season 3

Fortnite is adding more and more fun elements into the island this season and Skateboards might be the next one. Here’s the latest on it.

Fortnite Season 3 has kicked off with loads of fun elements for loopers to enjoy in-game and vibe along the summer themed challenges that dropped with the recent v21.10 update. To add to this fun, vehicles like Skateboards might join the likes of rumored Motorbikes this season as well.

Loopers are having a blast dropping in on the island from the Battle Bus and claiming loot from their Reality Saplings, riding Ballers around Rave Cave, using the recently unvaulted Lightsabers and battle Darth Vader as a boss. However, apart from Ballers, loopers are missing out on fun with vehicles as they enjoyed last season with Tanks and Armored Battle Buses (which are still around the island).

Several speculations this season have been directed towards a motorcycle vehicle that might be added soon to the game, according to several leaks, and will be a part of the summer themed bonanza Epic would bring to the players. However, to double the fun, developers might bring a vehicle similar to Hoverboards, but this time around, like a skateboard.

Fortnite to add Skateboards soon in Season 3

According to recent leaks on social media, it has been revealed that Epic has recently started working on Skating mechanics that bear similarity to sliding mechanics that are currently present in-game. Slower when going uphill and faster when going downhill.

This suggests that Roller Skates or Skateboards might be a possibility to be added as either vehicles or traversal items in-game in the near future or this season. Moreover, it would only make sense for Epic to add these items to Fortnite as the entire summer theme of Item Shop cosmetics revolves around surfing and skateboarding, like the recently released Skate Park Royalty Pack.

The leaked gameplay video above shows the mechanics in action where a player is sliding without crouching and goes on slower as it goes uphill. Moreover, it looks like between the increase of speed, the player is kicking the board with its feet to move faster and can also jump from heights without inflicting heavy fall damage on themselves.

Although this looks like an interesting concept, players are still used to Hoverboards as they still stand as the OG traversal vehicle back from Chapter 1 that loopers used to do tricks on. However, with the arrival of Skateboards in the game, loopers might see the addition of a Skate Park POI or several ramps where loopers can perform tricks and farm crazy amounts of XP.
