Is Oro the real Fortnite Season 2 ‘secret’ Battle Pass skin?

A lot of fans have been wondering why the leaked Fortnite Oro skin hasn’t been in the Item Shop. It could be because it’s a part of the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass.



A lot of fans have been wondering why the leaked Fortnite Oro skin hasn’t been in the Item Shop. It could be because it’s a part of the Fortnite Season 2 Battle Pass.

The leaked Oro skin was the first piece of information that we had on Chapter 2 Season 2. We saw him leaked before the season even started, and assumed he’d be an integral part of the storyline.

When Season 2 released, however, we saw that he wasn’t a part of the Battle Pass. Not to worry, we thought, he’ll be in the Item Shop within the first week.

It’s now into the sixth week of Season 2 and Oro has yet to grace us with his presence. Where is he? Why haven’t Epic put him in the Item Shop? What are they waiting for?

The Fortnite v12.21 content update was incredibly small. We’re used to patches that address some Fortnite bugs, but this one didn’t even do that. All of the bugs listed on the Trello board are still there, with nothing new coming to the game.

If you don’t follow the Fortnite leakers on Twitter, you’d think that the patch did next to nothing – apart from adding a new Spy Games LTM. There was one thing that changed, however. Epic added challenges to the leaked Oro skin, along with an unlockable pickaxe and weapon wrap as rewards.

What’s more, is that these challenges earn you 100,000 XP for completing each. This could be a placeholder; but what if it isn’t?

Fortnite has avoided the ‘pay-to-win’ tag at every turn. They quickly patched the Plastic Patroller skins that allowed you to blend into the landscape, fixed a bug that had some pickaxes dealing more damage, and changed the Deep Dab emote when it was letting you ghost-peak windows.

They would never add a skin and challenge set to the Item Shop that allowed players to earn a combined 400,000 XP. This has to be a placeholder, right?

Not necessarily. Epic have been the subject of some criticism due to their lack of XP this season. Maxing-out the gold variants of the Battle Pass skins seems next to impossible, but we could be getting a boost.

Most fans took the ‘Deadpool is the Season 2 secret skin’ message at face value. When you think about it, though, he isn’t a secret at all. We knew about Deadpool as soon as the season released. What if Oro is the real secret skin?

Everything adds up: the fact that we haven’t seen him in the Item Shop, the challenges for an unlockable pickaxe and wrap, the amount of XP we get for completing these challenges, the multiple variants, the gold theme of the skin – everything.

It’s a fair guess – or even assumption – that Oro will be revealed as the Fortnite Season 2 secret Battle Pass skin. Sorry, Deadpool, but you were nothing but a red herring.

Epic delay Fortnite Season 3 & Device Event for the second time

The Device Event and Fortnite Season 3 have been delayed in the wake of nationwide protests in the US.



Epic Games have delayed Fortnite Season 3 and the Device Event for the second time. This decision comes following similar decisions from Sony and Activision, who delayed the PS5 reveal and Call of Duty season, respectively.

The team announced their decision in a blog post on June 3. The Device Event was moved from June 6 to June 15 and the new season was rescheduled for June 17.

“Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color,” they wrote in their blog post. “We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”

“The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities,” the post continued.

“The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.”

Fortnite fans are disappointed by the news, but it was not unexpected. As we said, other publishers and studios have made similar decisions in the wake of recent real-world events.

The exact timing of the Device Event is still up in the air, as it’s now set to take place on a Monday rather than a Saturday. We’ll keep you posted with more news about Fortnite Season 3 as it comes.

This spray concept would be one of the most-used emotes if added

This Fortnite spray concept is as simple as it is brilliant.



Sprays are one of the most forgotten cosmetic items in all of Fortnite. At least Banners have their own skins and emoticons allow you to use them after death. Sprays, on the other hand, tend to sit in everyone’s locker, unused.

There are a couple of sprays that get some attention, but Reddit user u/JewishGuyOnReddit had an idea that could beat all of them – and some of the most popular emotes that are already in Fortnite.

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. Here’s what it is: “_____ was here.” That’s it. Imagine how awesome that would be. You could spraypaint your Gamertag or IGN all over the island.

This would be up there with some of the classic emotes as an instant purchase and a staple of the front wheel. You could even incorporate the dead body outline to show that you eliminated a player and tagged their spot.

Epic have incorporated a ton of fan-made cosmetic items, and we’d like to submit this one for their review. Let’s bring sprays back with this one!

Ninja goes off on ‘boring’ Fortnite Chapter 2: ready for a new Season

Ninja calls the recent Fortnite seasons “boring” but remains hopeful for Season 3.



Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is second only to Chapter 2 Season 1 as the longest season in Fortnite history. This season, like the previous one, has also offered little in the way of new content to players who hop on the Battle Bus every day.

During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins unleashed his fury upon the recent state of Fortnite. He echoed the complaints of many longtime Fortnite players. His perspective might be a bit amplified by the number of hours he’s put into the game in the past year, but it’s relatable to many in the community.

“I don’t want to play Fortnite right now,” Ninja told his chat. “It’s boring, there’s nothing new/ I’m having a little bit of fun, sometimes, but we’ve been playing the same map … the only new places that they’ve added are places with Henchmen that beam you, and laser you, and s**t on your walls.”

In a moment of self-reflection, Ninja admitted that he’s starting to “sound like Turner (Tfue).” He acknowledged that he’s having more fun with Fortnite than other times in the past, but misses the variety that old Fortnite seasons brought us.

“It blows my mind that we were forced to play the very first Season 1 for, like, 120 days,” Ninja continued before looking at the chart that showed the length of each season. “Double the length of seasons with half the content. Two seasons have almost taken up a year!”

Ninja is giving a voice to a large portion of the community who are eager for Season 3 to come out. Rumors are swirling about an additional delay to the next season due to the protests in the United States. Epic and Loserfruit just announced a delay to her Icon Series skin for that reason.

We have yet to hear any official news about a Season 3 delay, just yet. Of course, we’ll keep you covered if that changes.
