New Items

Fortnite v10.20 Update Leaked Cosmetics – Skins, Pickaxes, Gliders, and more

Published

on

Fortnite’s v10.20 Update is now officially live on all platforms, and data miners have been hard at work scouring the patch files in hopes of finding brand-new skins, gliders, pickaxes, and more that are headed to the game.

The v10.20 Update introduced a brand new item in the form of the Shield Bubble, which will protect you from explosives and projectiles for 30 seconds, but the headline addition was the new Fortnite x Mayhem event, which sees the popular battle royale title team up with Borderlands 3 to bring Pandora to the game’s island. 

Alongside these massive changes, Epic Games have also added a number of brand-new cosmetic items to the files, which are likely to appear in the in-game store over the next few weeks and made available for purchase by fans of the battle royale title.

These cosmetic items will be released sporadically over the next few days, but are added to the game in one big batch, hidden away in the files in the hopes that players won’t see them before they are officially released. 

For those who are impatient though, data miners usually search through the files themselves, and release them early so we can see what’s heading to the game, and what cosmetic items we want to buy once they are available. 

As always, just because they have been added to the game isn’t a guarantee that we’ll ever see them in the store, as the developers have added cosmetics in the past which have never been used. 

With last week’s v10.10 Content Update not including any cosmetic items at all, Epic Games have added tons of new items with this patch, and you can take an early look at what is coming to the game below. 

Thanks to @FNBRHQ for these leaks.

Events

Fortnite Galactus event: Nexus War start date and time

Published

on

Nexus War event in Fortnite

The exact date and time for the Nexus War finale in Fortnite has been confirmed, and there is little time to prepare for the Galactus event.

The event, which will bring Chapter 2, Season 4 to a climax, as Galactus – aka the Devourer of Worlds – is bombing towards the map to, presumably, destroy it all.

The countdown to the event appeared in-game on November 21, and Epic have now confirmed the exact date and time when the Nexus War will commence.

“It was only a matter of time.” Epic say in their blog post. “Galactus is closing in on the Island and the fate of all Reality lies in the balance. Join the ultimate fight against Galactus in the one-time-only Nexus War finale event.”

When is the Galactus event in Fortnite?

The Nexus War finale event will start on December 1 at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GMT.

To make sure you don’t miss out, Epic has given some tips to be prepared for the event:

  • DOWNLOAD THE LATEST UPDATE
    If you haven’t already downloaded the 14.60 update, load the game on your preferred device and download today.
  • DOWNLOAD HOUSEPARTY
    Fortnite’s new integration with Houseparty means you can have live video chat in Fortnite (PC, PS4/PS5) while attending the event.
  • GET IN EARLY
    We’ve taken measures to ensure more people can attend the event, but we still recommend everyone log into Fortnite at least 60 minutes prior to the event start. The event playlist is expected to go live 30 minutes prior to the start time.

Of course, even if you can’t play the game yourself at the time, you’ll still be able to catch the action on Twitch and YouTube streams from content creators.

As Epic confirms, this is a one-time-only event, so there won’t be any reruns unlike previous end of season events.

Leak

All leaked Fortnite skins & cosmetics from v14.60

Fortnite v14.60 brought leaked skins, pickaxes, and more cosmetics to the game.

Published

on

Fortnite v14.60 is here, and you know what that means: a batch of leaked skins that will be hitting the Item Shop in the upcoming weeks.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the next Fortnite event, which is rumored to be the biggest event in the history of the game. Until then, we can pass the time by drooling over some upcoming skins. The Cob skin is going to be a must-have going into Thanksgiving.

Leaked Skins & Back Bling

Fortnite is bringing a couple of interesting Thanksgiving skins to Fortnite, this year, including a skin concept that has existed for a while. Peely is getting the seasonal treatment and being turned into corn on the cob. This will, reportedly, be a part of a skin bundle with the evil pie-looking skin.

Of course, players will also see Venom enter the game as early as today in the Venom Cup. Winners of the skin will be able to use it this week. Everyone else will have a chance to buy it at a later date – probably this weekend.

The resident witch and wizard – Elmira and Castor – received a Dark variant in this patch, as well. Players who already own these skins will be able to access this new style right away.

Leaked Pickaxes

The leaked pickaxes in this update aren’t much to write home about – all but Venom’s pickaxe. We have some bad news about that one, though.

According to Hypex, it will be a built-in pickaxe that we won’t be able to use with other skins.

Leaked Wraps

We’ll be getting a few wraps to go along with the leaked skins in the section above. The Galaxy Wrap appears to be another style for the female Galaxy skin that we saw a while back.

The Rainbow Fog wrap looks to be a part of the upcoming Fortnite X House Party collaboration, meaning players will probably be able to get it for free.

Misc.

There are a few miscellaneous leaked cosmetics as well, including a Reboot Van emoticon, a Thor music pack, and two sprays that relate to Ghost Rider and Peely.

We don’t know whether or not you’ll be able to buy these items, but most of the time Epic save these for free challenge rewards.

Cosmetics weren’t the only leaks that were a part of the v14.60 update. We also have some information on what we can expect coming out of the next Fortnite event: Devourer of Worlds.

We’ll keep you covered with all of the leaks ahead of the update, so make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.
