Fortnite leaks are common leading up to big events. There is no way for Epic to hide the files entirely so renderings are common on social media.
With the fight between the Mecha and the Monster set to take place this weekend, many of the largest Fortnite leakers have banded together and promised not to spoil the event.
#wedontleak became a popular hashtag on Twitter as many notable leakers promised to keep their discoveries to themselves. The campaign was largely led by FortTory who reached out to other leakers to provide a unified front on the issue.
Me and some other leakers have talked and came to a conclussion we wont leak the event 1/2 hours before the event starts. Lets just keep it a suprise.— FortTory – Fortnite Leaks & News (@FortTory) July 18, 2019
Hereby I call up all the leakers, keep it for once a suprise and enjoy the event!#wedontleak
Here is a quick list of Fortnite leakers who have agreed not to post anything about the event: FortTory, FNBRleaks, HypeX, Lucas7Yoshi, ShiinaBR, SiegeFNleaks, KrispyLeaks, StormLeak, RiftFNBR, and more.
Just because the campaign is out there, doesn’t mean your timeline is totally safe from leaks. Other big leakers have opted to choose a mute word instead of not doing leaks entirely.
That mute word feels like a solid compromise. People who don’t want to see leaks can easily go into their Twitter settings and make sure the unique word the leaker has chosen doesn’t appear in their timeline. The only issue is people who don’t see the tweet indicating that muted word. While some leakers originally offered a mute word, the public backlash appears to have the vast majority joining #wedontleak.
If you really don’t want the event spoiled, all you need to do is stay off social media for about two hours before the event begins. Considering everything is encrypted until then, no real leak can come out.
Now if you do want leaks, we will be posting articles about them if they do come out. We have chosen to do this because our leaks are in articles and nothing will be posted in the title or picture that spoil the event. That gives people the option to choose whether they want to see the leak or not by clicking on the article.
