Leaked Fortnite v12.61 update skins and cosmetic items

Published

Epic Games

Fortnite update v12.61 has arrived, and while Epic Games didn’t add many new skins or cosmetic items to the game, data miners and leakers have been sifting through the files and given us a look at what’s to come before the end of Chapter 2, Season 2.

Season 2 is rapidly coming to its conclusion, with the highly anticipated Doomsday event set to rock the game to its foundations as Epic Games moves to Season 3.

With the current season drawing to a close, the game’s developers have released the v12.61 Update on May 26 which includes a number of leaks as to what the event will entail.

For those who are looking a new skin or some new dances moves, though, Epic have added some new additions to the files which will be released over the next week or so.

Cyclo Doomsday skin and Windshear Cloak

There’s only one new skin in the game this week, but it appears to have major links to the end of Season 2, with the mysterious and imposing skin added to the files under the name “Hurricane,” prompting many to wonder if he is set to unleash the natural disaster onto the island.

On top of that, there is also a brand-new cloak that goes with Cyclo Doomsday, which appears to have been battered by winds and torn in places at the bottom. You can view the skin and back bling below courtesy of @Lucas7yoshi.

Drake’s Toosie Slide comes to Fortnite

Definitely the most surprising addition to the game, global megastar Drake has made his first appearance in Fortnite, with a brand-new emote appearing in-game based on a dance from the music video for his latest single, Toosie Slide.

The track debuted on April 3, and was then eventually released as part of his new mixtape Dark Lane Demo Tapes. It immediately became a hit on TikTok, with creators dancing along to the instructions featured in the song, and now Fortnite players can do the same. You can watch the Toosie Slide emote in action below, thanks to @HYPEX.

On top of that, Epic have actually licensed the song, so when you’re sliding in front of your downed enemies, they’ll hear October’s Very Own singing along.

Fortnite’s v12.61 patch is expected to be the final patch before Chapter 2, Season 3 kicks off, so it was always likely that new cosmetics would be in short supply this week. Data miners are still sifting through the files though, so if any more are discovered we’ll be sure to update this article.

Fortnite Doomsday event countdown reveals Season 2 end date and time

Published

on

Fortnite now has an official countdown to the upcoming end-of-season event in-game, confirming Saturday, May 30 as the date for the Doomsday event.

Each Season of Fortnite usually tries to go out with a bang, and leaks and teases have been foreshadowing the big ‘Doomsday’ event ending Season 2.

Although data miners were able to provide their best guesses for when it would be, and what exactly will happen, the countdown now confirms it.

Appearing on May 23, exactly one week before the event is scheduled to take place, you can now see the countdown prominently in the main lobby.

The timer will end on Saturday, May 30, ready for the event to kick off at 7:05pm BST / 8:05pm CEST / 2:05pm EDT / 11:05am PDT.

What is the Doomsday Event?

While we now know when the event will take place, there still remains the question of what will happen.

The most common theory currently is that the map, or at least part of it, will flood. This is plausiblele, considering players also noticed that the underwater hatches were ‘activated’ on the same day as the countdown appeared.

Many players are convinced that there will be some kind of water theme in Chapter 2, Season 3, as the big leak a few weeks ago suggested.

This same leak also claimed that there will be a rideable shark vehicle in the next season, as well as the ability to set materials on fire.

So, the Doomsday event could be a total or partial flooding of the Fortnite map – or something else entirely. At this point, it’s impossible to say for sure. We just have to wait until Saturday, May 30.

Broken Fortnite exploit lets you take pieces 100% of the time

This Fortnite exploit allows you to take cones 100% of the time. All you have to do is stand at the northern end of the box.

Update 5/22: Epic have released a patch to address this issue. Read about it here.

Original article: There are – and always have been – a plethora of ways to gain an advantage over an opponent in Fortnite. There are exploits that allow you to phase through structures, steal walls, and make it so an uninformed opponent has no chance of defending themselves.

Most of these require a high level of skill to master. The ramp-phase trick is one that most players know about, but there are other wall-phasing exploits that only pro players use in their games.

Recently, players began to notice an exploit that allows you to take cones and floors 100% of the time. You don’t have to build three structures to push yourself through a building piece. All you have to do is stand on the southern end of the structure, looking to the north. It sounds crazy, but it’s that simple.

Several Fortnite players have showcased this exploit, including DuckyTheGamer – one of the most popular mobile Fortnite players on Twitch. In this clip, you’ll see him testing the exploit and succeeding 100% of the time when standing on the southern side.

We tested this in the Battle Lab on Xbox and weren’t as consistent with our cone-stealing. There’s a chance that this was a PC and mobile problem, as Epic released a maintenance patch on those platforms, today.

To be fair, though, we probably don’t have the best timing with this. It seems like players who have optimal timing can steal these building pieces 100% of the time.

Other Fortnite players tested this on walls, and it doesn’t seem to apply. That’s the good news, at least. The bad news is that if a player has great timing, they’ll be able to steal your ceiling from you every time. Hopefully, Epic address this issue soon, if the recent maintenance patch wasn’t aimed at this exploit.
