A newly-leaked Fortnite LTM lets you watch Punk’d at Risky Reels with your friends.

Today’s Fortnite maintenance patch didn’t bring us much in the way of new content. Instead, Epic focused on optimizing their game and fixing some of the issues that have been plaguing players since Season 2 began.

There were a few pieces of information that came out of the patch, however, including a new LTM that’s in the game files.

The LTM is called “Now Playing” and will take place at Risky Reels. The description of the event reads, “Just want to Risky & Chill? Hang out in Now Playing to catch the hourly screenings of Punk’d. Top of the hour, every hour.”

Epic have been testing the connection of their screen at Risky Reels for some time. Most players assumed that this would be for some sort of competitive Fortnite viewing. Apparently, their first act will be to stream Punk’d episodes.

Punk’d was a massively popular celebrity prank show in its heyday. Streaming network, Quibi, recently rebooted the idea with host Chance the Rapper replacing Ashton Kutcher.

The LTM will enable Vending Machines and Redeploys while disabling bots, vehicles, vault loot, and fishing.

According to data miner @Spedicey1, the LTM will also unvault several items and weapons, along with vaulting pistols, the Rapid-Fire SMG, Cardboard Box, Bot Grenade, and Proximity Mine.

With so many changes, it will be interesting to see the scope of this LTM. Will we be able to access the full map or just Risky? Can we fight one another? We may not know until the LTM goes live.

We have to assume that these episodes will be the new version of Punk’d, which hasn’t garnered the same massive attention as the original.

This LTM opens the door to a host of possibilities for Fortnite. This isn’t the “Punk’d” LTM, after all; it’s called “Now Playing.” That means that Epic could bring new shows, movies, and Fortnite streams into the game.

We’ll keep an eye on this LTM and update you with any information that we have. It will be worth a try, at least, with an eye toward to exciting future of in-game Fortnite live streams.

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

on

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

on

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.

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

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

Published

on

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.
