Fortnite players have been looking forward to the potential of a female Midas skin since we first saw the art at the beginning of Season 5. Now, new leaks suggest it could be coming soon.

Female Midas was, for a lot of players, one of the bigger cosmetic draws of Season 5. We already have the loading screen related to the skin, which led players to believe that she would be the secret skin for the latest Fortnite season.

We soon learned that Predator would be the Fortnite Season 5 secret skin. Fine, then, we’d surely get female Midas as one of the Crew exclusive skins. We’re only three months into the new Crew system but still haven’t seen a female Midas added to the game.

Fans have been left wondering if female Midas will ever come to the game, or if the skin will have the same fate as Shadow Midas from the Fortnitemares event.

Female Midas coming soon?

After months of anticipation, we may have finally gotten some news of female Midas in the v15.40 patch. Data miner ShiinaBR tweeted about an unfinished Midas skin variant added to the game files.

Naturally, this led to speculation about the only Midas skin that we think should be coming to Fortnite in the future: female Midas. Unlike a lot of other leaked skins, these files aren’t related to either a male or female.

If this leak is related to the female Midas, then we can assume that we’ll see her before the end of the season. It would make sense, as she’s already linked to Season 5 through her loading screen.

Unlike Shadow Midas, who was an NPC boss during Season 4, we haven’t seen any in-game clues about female Midas outside of the loading screen. We expect to see her in some capacity – hopefully with a skin in the Item Shop or through the Crew subscription pass.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more, but this encrypted skin could stay under wraps until it releases. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.

Fortnite leak reveals Temple Bloom POI coming in v21.20 update

The Reality Tree in Fortnite has affected Logjam Lotus and Butter Bloom, and it seems like its next target is the Temple Bloom landmark.

Temple Bloom POI in Fortnite

The Fortnite island is literally blooming, all thanks to the Reality Tree. Leakers have revealed that a new Temple Bloom POI will arrive in the next update with a theme similar to Logjam Lotus and Butter Bloom.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 hasn’t been the best in terms of server performance and XP, but the same cannot be said for map changes. A new biome was introduced at the season’s launch, and ever since, two locations have already changed significantly.

Here’s what we know about the upcoming Temple Bloom/The Tower POI in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Fortnite players spot new Reality Root in Temple Bloom landmark

Soon after Butter Barn turned into Butter Bloom, loopers discovered a new Reality Root and a small pink tree in Temple Bloom. The landmark is located west of The Joneses and interestingly, the latest quests accidentally mark it as a named location.

From the looks of it, the Temple Bloom landmark is all set to become a major location. Prominent leaker HYPEX has also talked about a file codenamed The Tower. They first assumed that The Tower will be the new named location, but it is possible that it is just one of the themes that Temple Bloom will cater to.

What to expect from Temple Bloom POI in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3?

It is worth noting that the latest POIs in Fortnite have alternating themes such as Roman, Atlantis, and Neo. Classic POIs like Colossal Coliseum, Coral Castle, and Neo Tilted, are the inspiration behind these themes, respectively.

Hence, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Temple Bloom also has multiple themes. As of now, there’s no information on these themes apart from the fact that there will be a tower.

It is safe to assume that the Temple Bloom POI will become official in the v21.20 update that is expected to release on July 5, 2022.

The community, as usual, has already assumed what Temple Bloom will look like. While Fortnite veterans wish to witness the return of the OG Ranger Tower which used to be in Lonely Lodge, others are confident that the upcoming location will be tailor-made for Indiana Jones.

Indiana Jones is the secret skin in Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. The quests to unlock his cosmetics will be unlocked on July 7, 2022, and it makes sense for him to be a boss in Temple Bloom.

All in all, it is evident that Epic Games is focusing on map changes in Chapter 3 Season 3. The latest hotfix update also added the Firework Flare Gun to the loot poot, and loopers certainly have a ton of new content to explore.

Fortnite Fall Guys event leaked: How to complete Crown Clash challenges

A much anticipated collab between Fortnite and Fall Guys is finally coming to the looped Battle Royale with some rewards and challenges. Here’s how you can do them.

Fall Guys is one of the most popular Battle Royale games that went viral ever since its release due to its healthy gameplay and exciting obstacle based games. Its collaboration with Fortnite has been teased for over a year and leaks show that it is finally arriving in the form of an in-game event with challenges that offer rewards to those who participate in it.

The collaborations between Fortnite and several video games always keeps the player base at their feet as they wait for their favorite characters to enter the loop. Moreover these collabs result in either in-game items, challenges or Item Shop cosmetics that loopers do not hesitate spending their precious V-Bucks on.

From Street Fighter to God of War, players have seen characters from various franchises arrive to the Gaming Legends series of cosmetics to the Item Shop. Most recently, players saw a brief collab with Among Us cosmetics, as the game finally arrived to Epic Games store a while ago.

However, the collab only consisted of a Back Bling and an emote which was rather disappointing but fans still bought the cosmetics from the Item Shop, given the game’s popularity. Now that Fall Guys is free on Epic Games Store, the collab between the two is arriving in Fortnite with certain challenges that rewards the participants with in-game cosmetics.

How to complete Fall Guys Crown Clash Challenges in Fortnite Season 3

Fortnite x Fall Guys collab is set to enter Fortnite on June 29 in-game with the release of Crown Clash Challenges. The challenges will go on until July 11 which means players will have less than a couple weeks to complete all the challenges and claim their rewards.

Players would need to complete these challenges in 5 rounds. This might suggest that these challenges would take place in a Creative map rather than the traditional Battle Royale approach.

Loopers who complete these in Fortnite will get 5 free cosmetics right in their locker which will only be exclusive to those completing all the challenges. Moreover, if players have their Epic ID linked to their Fall Guys account, they will receive 3500 Kudos after the completion of these challenges, in their Fall Guys account to spend in-game.

However, the challenges also seem to affect the points one could get in Rocket League, as per the leaks. Although, this might be a possibility as Rocket League cars were spotted in a leak to appear soon in the Fortnite island back again.

Fortnite adds Firework Flare Gun in latest Hotfix update

A brand new version of the Flare Gun is here in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. Here’s how it is the perfect fit for the Vibin’ theme.

Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite

Fortnite has added the coolest version of the classic Flare Gun in the June 28 hotfix update for Chapter 3 Season 3. From its stats to viability, here’s everything to know about the new weapon.

Back when Firefly Jars and Repair Torches weren’t a thing, Fortnite players used Flare Guns to cause chaos. The multi-purpose pistol is a fan favorite, and it has finally returned in a new Firework form.

How to use the Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Just like the OG Flare Gun, the Firework Flare Gun should be available in chests, rare chests, Loot Llamas, Supply Drops, and even floor loot.

It will serve two major purposes:

  • Scan nearby opponents with the help of fireworks.
  • Cause a fire when the bullet comes in contact with structure/surfaces. The fire spreads within a fixed AoE (area of impact) that deals continued damage to opponents.

The Flare Gun has the following stats:

  • DPS– 34
  • Damage– 60
  • Reload Time– 1.6 seconds
  • Mag size– 6

However, as the name suggests, the Firework Flare Gun has a special Firework ability. When loopers shoot towards the sky, the bullet eventually turns into a beautiful firework. Interestingly, this effect also happens when the bullet touches the ground or any other surface.

We already have gameplay footage of the Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3:

It is evident that the Firework Flare Gun is a lot goofier than its standard version. This is primarily because of this season’s theme, Vibin’.

Fortnite community looks forward to more summer content in Chapter 3 Season 3

The Firework Flare Gun won’t be a part of the loot pool permanently. According to leakers, it has been unvaulted for the No Sweat Summer event. This also explains the tropical color theme.

While loopers are excited to see fireworks on the island, they definitely expect more from the No Sweat Summer event. Until now, we’ve only received some Creative XP challenges and three free cosmetics (back bling and sprays).

Epic Games is yet to add summer-themed elements to the map like Surfboards and NPCs, among other things. The developer can certainly change this narrative with the next major update that should arrive next week.
