Fortnite Loserfruit skin and ‘Fruit Punchers’ emote leaked

The Fortnite Loserfruit skin has been leaked. We can expect to see it hit the Item Shop as soon as tonight.

It appears as though Fortnite creator, Loserfruit, will be the next addition to the Fortnite Icon Series following the release of the v12.60 patch. Data miners were able to see some files relating to her cosmetics pack.

According to these reports, the pack will include a skin, back bling, and emote for the Australian Fortnite personality. There’s no news as to when this skin will be hitting the Item Shop

This skin may be coming to the game sooner rather than later, with the files fully decrypted and available to the data miners who went looking. Loserfruit’s skin and emote have been released by @SkinTrackerCom.

In the clip, below, you can see the Loserfruit skin along with her emote and another leaked emote that has yet to hit the Item Shop. You will reportedly have the ability to select your Loserfruit styles as well – similar to the Ninja skin that’s already in the game.

In addition to this new bundle, Marshmello reportedly received a cosmetic bundle as well. You may be able to grab all of his cosmetics for a discounted price.

With Ninja appearing in the Item Shop last night, it would be no surprise to learn that LoserFruit was coming up next. If not, we can expect to see this skin over the weekend.

How to return your Fortnite NFL skin without using a refund token

The new Fortnite update brought changes to the NFL skins and Epic are allowing players to return them for free.

Published

on

The Fortnite v14.30 update introduced a change to the Fortnite NFL skins, removing the name and logo for the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins. After years of public backlash, the team removed the name and are now, officially, called the Washington Football Team while ownership acquires a new trademark.

In Fortnite, this means that the team has been removed from the available options in their line of NFL skins. Now, when you visit the customization tab, the Washington Football Team will be the last option with no logo.

Since the team made this change, Epic are allowing players to return their purchase for a limited time – without using a refund token. You’ll be able to refund whichever NFL skin(s) you bought until November 13 (30 days after the v14.30 patch).

Some players have questions about how to trigger this return, however. It’s not as straightforward as you might think.

Players who still have refund tokens should be able to navigate to the proper tab by going to Settings > Profile (far right) > Lifetime Return Requests > Submit a Request. There, you should see the NFL outfit listed as one of the items eligible for returns.

If you’ve already used all of your refund tokens, however, the “Submit a Request” Button will be greyed-out. Another problem you may encounter is that your game didn’t update right away, making the NFL skin ineligible – for the moment.

The fix for this is simple: all you need to do is play a game or enter and leave Creative Mode. After that, you’ll see the prompt shown in the first picture and will be able to navigate to the Settings tab and issue a refund.

The NFL skins were a fun addition to Fortnite for a lot of gamers, but some players found that they don’t use these skins as much as they thought they would – or as much as they did in the past. Returning one of these will grant you 1,500 V-Bucks, which will almost seem free if you bought the skin a year or two ago.

Now that you have these extra V-Bucks, you can save them or use them for one of the upcoming skins that was leaked in the v14.30 update. The choice is yours.

How to earn the Daredevil skin for free in Fortnite

Epic have announced the Daredevil Cup – the first cup in the Marvel Knockout Super Series – and a chance to win a free Daredevil skin.

Published

on

As the competitive Fortnite season continues along, Epic are releasing more ways to compete for those who aren’t fighting for their spot in the FNCS. In fact, they just announced a Fortnite tournament that has little to do with the base game mode.

Instead of a traditional tournament, Epic have announced the Marvel Knockout Super Series. This tournament series will feature “four competitive cups centered around the Marvel Knockout game mode.” This will all culminate in one $1 million tournament on November 21.

For now, however, the only scheduled event is the Daredevil Cup, which is why you came to this article in the first place. Those who place highly in each region of the Daredevil Cup will earn the Daredevil skin for free.

The Daredevil Cup will take place on October 14 – only two days from the announcement. Players will need to place within the top 800, 500, 200, or 100 based on their region. Here’s a look at the scoring system and placement requirements for the Daredevil skin.

Scoring System

  • 1st: 100 points
  • 2nd: 50 points
  • 3rd-4th: 25 points
  • 5th-8th: 15 points
  • 9th-16th: 5 points

Required Placement for free Daredevil skin

  • Europe: 1st – 800th
  • NA-East: 1st – 500th 
  • NA-West: 1st – 200th
  • Brazil: 1st – 200th
  • Asia: 1st – 100th
  • Oceana: 1st – 100th 
  • Middle East: 1st – 100th 

As is the case with all Fortnite tournaments, players will need to complete the two-factor authentication in order to compete and earn this free skin.

For those who don’t know, Marvel Knockout is a version of Operation: Knockout, which Epic introduced to Fortnite in Season 2. Instead of choosing random weapons, teams use the same hero abilities which cycle in each of the four rounds.

The Daredevil Cup is only the first of four cups in the Marvel Knockout Super Series, which means it’s likely the first of four free skins we have a chance to earn. We might see the likes of Venom, Black Panther, and other Marvel heroes earn their own free Fortnite skins.

If you don’t want to play in the event – or don’t place highly enough – and still want the Daredevil skin, don’t worry. It will be in the Item Shop after the event concludes. Good luck to all of the competitors.

Fortnite leak suggests “Corruption” will expand to its own rarity

More corrupted skins are coming to Fortnite – and they’ll be gaining their own rarity.

Published

on

Epic first introduced “corrupted” Fortnite skins in Chapter 2 Season 2 with the 8-Ball/Scratch outfit. The more XP players gained that season, the more corruption that this skin gained.

This was the first of the “enlightened” skins that we saw in Fortnite – culminating in the holographic skins that we’re seeing in Season 4. Corruption appears to be a bit different, however, as shown by the Corrupted Legends pack that recently cycled out of the Fortnite Item Shop.

This bundle isn’t the last that we’ve seen of corrupted Fortnite skins, however. According to data miner, Hypex, corrupted skins are due for an upcoming expansion.

Hypex tweeted that we’ll be getting a “Corrupt Series” in Fortnite with its own rarity – similar to other skin series that we’ve seen in the past. Items included in the Dark, Marvel, DC, Frozen, Molten, and Shadow Series all have their own rarities, as well.

This is all to say that we’ll likely get another few corrupted skins in Fortnite – possibly even a new bundle for next season. This is good news for fans of skins that progressively gain corruption over time.

We still don’t know which skins will be included in the next Corruption Bundle, or if any will be available for standalone purchase. Of course, we’ll keep you posted when we learn more.
