Fortnite leaks point to in-game comic books coming soon

Comic books are likely heading to Fortnite sooner rather than later – with Thor being the first issue.

The most recent Fortnite update, v13.40, brought us a ton of leaks that point to what the future of the game will hold. We already covered the 30+ new fish types found in the game files, but they weren’t the only new concept that was included in the patch.

Data miners also found mention of a “ComicReader” in the files. This would, naturally, suggest that readable comic books will be heading to Fortnite in the near future.

We have more than just a line of text, however. Apparently, those who switch accounts on Xbox (and possibly PS4) will be greeted with a glitched cut-scene. Obviously, this is not meant to be in the game, just yet.

We can see where the new comic books will be located in the Battle Pass tab, as well as what will happen when you click on them. What will these comic books hold? Well, we have some clues as to that as well.

Will these comic books be original content? We’re sure that some of them will, but we also have some leaks that point to actual comic books coming to Fortnite. Right now, they appear to be Marvel Comics.

Data miner, Hypex, has been spearheading these leaks. He was able to use the blurry photo of a Fortnite comic book to find out the actual comic that they came from. This one appears to be a Thor comic.

With all of this information available, we’d be surprised if Epic didn’t release comics before Season 4. Likewise, we expect the Season 4 secret Fortnite skin to relate to the in-game comics.

All of this points to Thor being the potential Season 4 secret skin. Fans were already theorizing about this when they saw what Captain America left behind in his release trailer – a glyph that looked strikingly similar to Thor’s glyph from one of his films.

Of course, this is only speculation. For now, all we know for sure is that Epic are planning on adding comics to Fortnite, soon – with Thor likely being the subject of their first issue. As always, we’ll keep you posted when we learn more.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
