Leaked skins and cosmetics from Fortnite v12.50 Update

Published

on

Fortnite’s v12.50 Update is now live, and as always, dataminers have been sifting through the patch files to find new skins, harvesting tools, gliders, and more that will be added to the game in the coming weeks.

After a relatively quiet 12.40 Update, Epic Games have dropped another patch for the game just a week later, bringing with it a new LTM called Payload, a nerf for the controversial Heavy Sniper, and some major changes to how aim assist works.

Of course, that’s not all that was included in the game’s files though, as the developers often add a bunch of cosmetic items to the battle royale which are then released to fans through the in-game Item Shop.

While Epic don’t intend for fans to see these new cosmetics until they are added to the store, dataminer Lucas7yoshi has been hard at work sifting through the files and has released the first look at all the upcoming skins on his Twitter account for us to enjoy.

Leaked Fortnite v12.50 Update skins

There are some extremely colorful characters coming to Fortnite over the next few weeks, with Vix, Envision, and Nightlife all bringing their unique styles to the game.

Players can also get their hands on spies Hugo, Sig, and Goldie, and can purchase Wild Gunner too for those who like to play the game on the edge.

Leaked Fortnite v12.50 Backbling

Thanks to the third-person nature of the game, Fortnite players spend a lot of time looking at their players back, so making sure you have a cool backbling equipped is essential.

The stand-out addition this time is the Neon Wings set, which sits off your back in shades of blue and red, while many will be big fans of the Whisker Pack backpack too.

Leaked Fortnite v12.50 Harvesting Tools and Glider

Players will be able to gather cosmetics in style, with the new Venom Blade and Purr Axes giving players new options.

There are also some new dual-wield tools, including the Butterfly Knives, Double Gold baseball bats, and the Agile Edge swords.

Leaked Fortnite v12.50 Weapon Wraps

Finally, Fortnite v12.50 includes four new Wraps for your guns, including Burning Glow which looks like lava, Neon Pulse which gives your weapon a bright green outline, Glitter Blaster, and Moo!, which will give all your guns a bovine look.

All of these leaked cosmetics should be added to the game officially in the near future, either in the in-game Item Shop for purchase or as part of rewards for upcoming challenge sets.

However, Epic Games do sometimes hold on to items for a long period of time, and on occasion never release some leaked cosmetics, so it’s highly possible that we may never see these in-game.

Bizzle joins old teammates after split with Commandment & Clix

Bizzle, Clix, and Commandment have split as Bizzle rejoins Dubs and Megga.

Published

There’s been a bit of shuffling in professional Fortnite trios over the past couple of days. The team of Bizzle, Commandment, and Clix has split, each going their separate ways. Bizzle joined his old partners, Megga and Dubs, While Commandment joined Edgey and Cented. For now, Clix is the only one of the three to not have a trio team.

This news comes after a rough server performance in a recent Trios tournament, which saw all of the players rubber-banding, lagging, and being lost in the storm with no way to get out. As Bizzle tweeted, the performance looked like one of the first Fortnite tournaments to exist.

Following this tournament, Commandment was the first to announce that he’d be leaving the team. Bizzle released a TwitLonger, stating that he’d be teaming back up with Megga and Dubs rather than looking for a third player to join him and Clix.

The TwitLonger also took aim at the current state of competitive Fortnite along with the server performance. “The Shockwave launcher disabled us from playing the way we were used to and crazy end game lag lead to a lot of thrown games. Every game we would have height, or outplay the team who had it and take it from them, and with the Shockwave launcher being in the game it completely ruined our play-style and attitude,” he wrote.

Despite the split, the three players appear to be on good terms with one another. Clix replied to Bizzle’s tweet, telling him that he’s the best player that Clix has played with.

The most interesting part of this situation is that Chap and Edgey called this split a few weeks back. The dueling trios were having a grief battle in pro scrims, leading to Chap telling his team and viewers, “I can’t wait for this trio to split.”

Edgey, who is ironically now teamed-up with Commandment, told Chap and Av that Bizzle and Clix would “snake each other for Dubs and Megga.” It may not have ended in any bad blood, but that’s essentially what happened.

Although the Season 3 FNCS is Solos, most of the pros prefer the Trios format, meaning that’s what we largely see in scrimmages. We’re also seeing several Trios tournaments and Cash Cups this season, so we’ll undoubtedly see the new teams hit Season 3 soon. Now, all that’s left is to see where Clix lands.

How to claim the new PlayStation Plus Celebration pack

Epic and Sony have joined forces to offer PlayStation players another free Fortnite cosmetic pack.

Published

on

Yesterday, we covered the news of Sony’s large investment in Epic Games and what that meant for Fortnite. One of our biggest takeaways in the article is that PlayStation would likely get some additional exclusive cosmetic bundles for their players.

It didn’t take long for this to come to fruition. A day later, Epic announced the new PlayStation Celebration bundle to go along with their other exclusive skins. This one includes the “Introducing” emote, Stratosphere Glider, and Down Arrow Contrail.

The Celebration Pack should be available to all players, worldwide, on July 10. Some players already have access to it. Those who have already claimed their exclusive Fortnite cosmetic items should know the process, but here it is for those who are unaware:

  • Visit the PlayStation Store
  • Navigate to Fortnite
  • Scroll down until you see the new Celebration Pack
  • Download the cosmetic pack.

This pack replaces the old Celebration Pack that included a couple of free skins, but you can grab both if the former pack is still in the shop. Don’t worry too much if you missed it, as we expect Fortnite to release several exclusive PlayStation packs in the future.

We don’t know how long this bundle will be in the store, but you can expect it to last a couple of months, at least. Grab it now to make sure you don’t miss out!

What does the $250 million Sony investment mean for Fortnite?

The implications of a massive investment on the biggest game in the world, Fortnite.

Published

On July 9, it was announced that Sony invested $250 million in Fortnite developer, Epic Games, making them a minority investor in the company. This brings Epic’s total investment capital to $1.58 billion.

Epic has been a major player in video games for a long time but made their biggest mark on the space with Fortnite, the game that we all came here to talk about.

Although Fortnite is Epic’s biggest product, at the moment, the company has their hands in several different titles and sources of income The Epic Games store, for instance, is looking to rival Steam by purchasing some massive games as exclusive content.

According to multiple reports, Sony’s investment in Epic will not affect the release of future titles. It’s not like Epic are going to make Fortnite a PlayStation exclusive. It might work in reverse, however. There’s a chance that Sony could bring some of their PlayStation exclusives to the Epic Games store on PC.

What does this mean for Fortnite? Well, in the words of Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, “Fortnite will never die.” This is a tad hyperbolic, but it’s clear that the gaming industry, as a whole, is ready for Fortnite to stick around for another ten years, or so. It wouldn’t be the first game to have a massive lifespan.

Apart from some additional money to work with, the biggest thing this means for Fortnite is probably in the cosmetic department. Now that Sony is a major investor in Epic, we can expect the developer to scratch their back with some exclusive skins.

Don’t worry, though. PlayStation players probably won’t get any priority when it comes to using new features or anything like that. What does the $250 million Sony investment mean for Fortnite? Ten more years of our favorite battle royale.
