Take a look at all of the Fortnite Season 2 teasers and what they mean here.

Epic is going all-in on the teasers for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. They seem to be dropping a new one every few hours, leading to more speculation about what the new season will bring.

Those who missed the previous teasers can view our articles on them here:

As you can see, we already have five articles spanning three days – and that’s not counting all of the theories coming out of the Fortnite Season 2 hype.

It’s much easier to keep everything in a nice, neat package. That’s what we’ve done, here. So, from here on out, we’re going to be discussing all of the Fortnite Season 2 teasers below, starting with the sixth online teaser for this week’s release (2/18 1:00 PM EST).

Epic Games

The image of a gas canister in this teaser creates a theme of explosives in Fortnite Season 2. We saw dynamite in the last picture, and now a canister. We also heard an “explosive specialist” mentioned in one of the recordings from the promotional posters.

The new teaser also appears to be a fragmented puzzle, similar to the mask in yesterday’s teaser. We’ll give you an update if/when the community pieces it together.

(2/18 5:00 PM EST) The community has cracked the code. It appears as though the pieces fit together to make the hero symbol from Season 4. There is also reportedly an unreleased ‘Omega Remix’ skin in the game files.

Will we be returning to the hero/villain theme of Season 4? At the very least, this teaser presents the idea that we’ll be clashing with the past.

(2/18 7:05 PM EST) Another Item Shop teaser. This one should be the last of the day. It follows the same ‘explosives’ theme we’ve been seeing with most of these.

(2/18 7:50 PM EST) Epic released a slightly different version of the teaser that we see in-game. The Fortnite Twitter account posted an image of the bomb with the word “DANGER” in several different languages.

You can see an area of the Fortnite map at the top-left corner of the image as well. This will be the location of the assumed Oil Rig in Season 2. It wasn’t long before SquattingDog and others found where it will be planted.

The bomb from the teaser also closely resembles an unfinished glider that was leaked a few weeks ago. It’s fair to assume that we’ll be getting this as part of the Battle Pass in Season 2.

(2/19 9:15 AM EST) The final day of teasers began with the “declassifeowied” message that all but confirms the Agent Meowscles leaks and theories that began a few weeks ago.

The teaser shows some sort of rocket in the center of the screen along with something that resembles a constellation on the right. The ‘Nine Lives’ message is clearly a reference to Agent Meowscles, whatever role he plays in all of this.

The other noteworthy part of the teaser is the ‘AS’ message. As many expected, Epic was spelling ‘Midas’ with these teasers.

(2/19 11:05 AM EST) It appears as though we have our second reference to Chapter 1 Season 4 in the new teaser. This image appears to be of the Visitor’s rocket, which you could originally find as a hologram in the Villain Lair in Season 4. Take a look ar our full article on the topic here.

(2/19 2:04 PM EST) We have yet another teaser for Fortnite Season 2 that hammers-home the ‘Agent Meowscles’ cat theme. This guy had better be a massive player in Season 2.

The primary image of the teaser appears to be a ball of yarn with two mouse grenades attached – on-brand for a cat.

There also appears to be several constellations, a cat face in the corner, and a new location that will undoubtedly be unveiled by the community soon. Stay tuned for that.

(2/19 7:10 PM EST) We have what will likely be our final teaser for Season 2. If it wasn’t already clear, Agent Meowscles is going to be a major player in the next season of Fortnite.

These symbols, or constellations, probably mean something as well, although no one seems to have cracked the code just yet. This one might go unsolved until Fortnite Season 2 releases.

As always, we’ll have you covered on all of the Season 2 changes, leaks, and (hopefully) patch notes.

SypherPK showcases the best hero ability in Fortnite Season 4

SypherPK has crowned Fortnite Season 4’s best Mythic hero ability: Sorm’s Whirlwind Blast

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is, in many ways, a return to form for Fortnite. We’re having a lot more lighthearted fun than we had over the course of the past couple of seasons. On top of that, with the spray weapons nerfed or gone, the competitive meta is also more entertaining to watch and play.

Hero abilities are helping to keep the game fresh, as well, and offering several different playstyles that weren’t there during the first portion of Chapter 2. Instead of ramped-up versions of existing weapons, the Season 4 Mythic items are entirely new.

Obviously, some Mythic abilities are more powerful than others. For instance, Silver Surfer’s Re-Deploy ability has gotten a lot of attention in competitive modes, while Groot’s Baller has largely been left behind.

One ability seems to stand above the rest, however – at least when it comes to the Core Fortnite game modes. Storm’s Mythic Whirlwind Blast ability might be the most powerful one that Epic have added.

During a recent stream, SypherPK noticed something that a lot of players hadn’t. He shot his Doctor Doom energy orb at a player, only to have it come flying back at him. As it turns out, Storm’s ability reflects projectiles.

When you add this to the fact that you can avoid fall damage, launch players to their death, and reflect damage from incoming cars, it’s an easy decision when you have to choose one Mythic item to carry.

SypherPK released a video that shows all of the uses for Storm’s Mythic ability, including the most popular and effective one: launching players to their death. You can also reflect all of the other offensive hero abilities in Fortnite – save for Iron Man’s Unibeam.

Hopefully, this item stays out of competitive Fortnite. If not, then we can be sure of what the next “Kit’s Shockwave Launcher” will be during the Season 4 FNCS. Keep your head on a swivel if you run into a player using this ability in-game.

Leak

Leaked Fortnite weapon is a cross between a Minigun & Grenade Launcher

This leaked Fortnite weapon is scary…

Published

The Fortnite community tends to be split when it comes to explosive weapons. Some enjoy the ability to break down any structure in the game, while others prefer a rocket-free experience when cranking 90’s for high-ground.

We’ve seen all kinds of explosive weapons come and go from Fortnite. We’ve had the Quad Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Proximity Launcher, regular RPG, Pumpkin Launcher, and several others. Only a couple of them have remained in the loot pool for more than a season.

According to Fortnite data miner, @Mang0e_, it looks like the latest explosive weapon is on the horizon. We’ve only seen some statistics and mesh image of the item, but that’s enough for us to be intimidated as to the destruction it could cause.

Mang0e_ described the weapon as a “cross between a Grenade Launcher and a Minigun.” If that doesn’t send a chill up your spine, we don’t know what will. These are two of the most powerful weapons that Fortnite has ever seen. Now, we’re combining them?

Of course, this is only preliminary information and we have no idea if this item will ever even come to Fortnite. The initial impression could be way off as well, so it’s no time to panic.

After all, we saw Machine Pistols leaked last year and they still haven’t entered the game. Just recently, we got the first piece of concrete news on the item since last November. This is all to say that it could be a long time before this strange “heavy weapon” comes to Fortnite – if it ever does.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the weapon, but it could be a while. Epic likely won’t release the next Fortnite update for at least a week or two, and we don’t expect to see this weapon when it does come out. In the meantime, make sure to follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, to be the first to know all of the breaking Fortnite news.

Leak

Fortnite Mythic weapon leak: ‘Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols’

Fortnite leaks reveal that Mystique is finally getting a Mythic item.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is all about the hero abilities. We’ve seen an ability for nearly every hero in the game along with some for heroes that haven’t even been released, such as Black Panther and Venom.

The only Battle Pass hero who hasn’t received a Mythic ability is, strangely, Mystique. To be fair, it might be a bit difficult for Epic to come up with one. Her superpower, after all, revolves around shapeshifting into other people. We can use this as a built-in Mystique emote, but it doesn’t work as a standalone in-game mechanic.

Well, it seems like Mystique’s mythic item is in development. That’s right: reports have it that we’re getting an item rather than an ability. Fortnite data miner, @Mang0e, released his findings: Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols.

You probably don’t remember this weapon model – it’s not everyone’s job to follow all of these Fortnite leaks – but this Machine Pistol was leaked over a year ago. After several updates, Epic adjusted the statistics and rarities of the unreleased weapon.

Still, even after the weapon was updated, Epic kept it out of the game for almost a year. It seems like we may finally see a version of this weapon enter Fortnite in Season 4.

We still have a lot of unanswered questions about this weapon. Most likely, we’ll be able to get our hands on it through the drones located at the Quinjet landing sights. This has been the most common place to grab Mythic hero abilities. Of course, we don’t know this for sure.

Will the third leak be the charm for the Machine Pistol, AKA Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols? Only time will tell. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about this weapon.
