Leak

More Fortnite skins and cosmetics leaked ahead of v10.40 update

Published

A further set of Fortnite cosmetics have been leaked ahead of the upcoming v10.40 patch update. 

Fortnite Season X is quickly drawing to a close as Epic Games appears to be wrapping up the season with yet another insane in-game event. The Dusty Depot rocket construction has finished and players are counting down the days until it launches. 

However, even though the celebratory season is almost wrapped up, that doesn’t mean that the developers have phoned it in and stopped with the updates, new cosmetics, and challenges. Oh no, in fact, following the leak of skins coming in the v10.40 patch, data miners have been able to get their hands on even more new items. 

Fortnite Rocket Launch tied to Season 10 map changes
Is the Rocket responsible for all the Fortnite map changes?

Thanks to ShiinaBR, @FunGamesLeaks & @MaxWinebach, we are now able to see that there will be Overtime Challenges to end Season 10.

Completing these challenges, and hitting a certain battle pass level, will give you some new looks – in the form of alternate Eternal Voyager, DJ Yonder, and Disco Sparkle Supreme skins.

That’s not all, though, as the trio of data miners were also able to reveal the new Samsung-exclusive skin that will replace iKONIK.

Called ‘Glow,’ the brand new skin appears to be pretty reflective and come decked out in gray with purple and blue tints. 

Aside from new skins, there will also be a new music pack, weapon wraps, and even some new backblings. 

These skins are all set to arrive with the v10.40 update, which is expected to drop on Thursday, September 26.

However, it’s unknown when some of them will be available in the item shop and just when the Overtime Challenges will go live. 

Anyone wanting to claim the Samsung Glow skin will have to own a Samsung device ranging from the new S10 phone to the S9 – or an A9 through Tab S6. This skin will be available, at some point, in the Galaxy Store after September 27 according to Samsung Italy.

Fortnite ceaters are ruining Fortnite scrims and custom games

Fortnite custom games and scrimmages seem to be the biggest target for some cheaters.

Published

The issue of cheating in Fortnite has jumped to the forefront of topics since the Season 3 FNCS began. For some reason, it seems like an influx of cheaters has entered the game. Is it timing? Have a newer, undetected cheat popped up? We can’t know for sure.

When we completed our interview with a Fortnite cheat developer a couple of weeks ago, he assured us that his is one of the only cheats to make it past the Fortnite anti-cheat. Since then, we’ve seen several players be exposed – even expose themselves – for using cheats in Fortnite. These cheats were, reportedly, not from the same source. It would appear as though there are more ways than one to get past this anti-cheat.

There are some instances of players cheating in competitive Fortnite, but the largest pool of victims are those who want to enjoy a custom game or scrimmage. Cheaters are griefing these lobbies and aren’t even trying to hide it.

No-skin cheaters are running around with a Hunting Rifle and eliminating entire lobbies. They’re sacrificing accounts – knowing that these clips will get them banned – just to watch people freak out.

The issue isn’t that they’re cheating, however – it’s that the anti-cheat isn’t catching them. This is as obvious as you can make it, and it still gets through the anti-cheat. We have to assume that these players were banned after the clips surfaced, but what about someone who hides their hacks more carefully?

Epic have been silent on the issue of cheaters making it through their anti-cheat system. We reached out for comment back when Bman was exposed for cheating in the Bugha Cup, but never heard back. We’re sure that the anti-cheat team is taking the issue seriously, but the silence indicates that they don’t have any leads.

For now, Epic appears to be relying on player reports to find cheaters, which can be inherently flawed, as we saw in the Dubs situation. Just because something looks fishy,doesn’t mean a player is cheating. Hopefully, all of this gets cleared up soon and no cheaters made it into the FNCS Finals. If they did, we should find out this weekend – with the community so hyper-aware.

The 5 most hated skins in Fortnite

The Fortnite community is no fan of these skins.

Published

on

Fortnite skins have taken on a life of their own since the game came out. Back in the early days, we couldn’t imagine spending money on a free game. Now, hundreds of dollars later, we’re still padding our lockers as collectors of in-game cosmetics.

Some skins tell a lot about the player wearing them. A Peely? They’re just trying to goof around and have some fun. A Dynamo? Sweat is probably pouring onto their keyboard at all times.

Today, we’re taking a look at the most hated skins in Fortnite – the skins that elicit an immediate reaction from opponents. You better be ready for some backlash if you post a clip while wearing one of these skins.

5. Crystal

You’re going to notice a trend with this list: some of the most well-known “sweaty” skins are some of the most hated skins in the game – for that reason. Players hate them because other people think it’s what good players wear, and Crystal is a perfect example of that.

Crystal is one of the sweatiest skins in Fortnite right now, but it’s not the most hated. Sure, you may be annoyed with a Crystal player, but most of them are skilled enough to back up their skin choice. Still, it’s always annoying when you see ten or more Crystals in a match.

4. Aura

Aura, like Crystal, is a well-known sweaty skin in Fortnite. Unlike Crystal, however, it seems to be the skin that a lot of “wannabe” good players choose. There are good Aura players out there, but there are even more bad ones.

There’s something that’s inherently annoying about seeing a bad player use a “sweaty” skin – as if the community wants to barricade these skins and only let the best players use them. Aura might be the most common “sweat” skin in Fortnite, so this feeling has led to the skin becoming one of the more hated skins in the game.

3. Rust Lord

Rust Lord has always been one of the most hated skins in the game – ever since it came out in Chapter 1 Season 3. It’s no coincidence that this skin came in the Battle Pass that also included the “Take the L” emote.

Rust Lord isn’t as hated as he used to be, but he’s still an annoying sight on the battlefield – especially if you played Fortnite when he first came out. Rust Lord was the original “most hated” skin in the game, and deserves to remain in the top three.

2. Female Soccer Skins

Female Soccer Skins, like the Rust Lord, have been hated ever since they first came out. This might have been the first “sweaty” skin to come to Fortnite, and it remains in the category to this day.

Over time, however, constant releases tremendously devalued what it meant to have one of these skins. They were rare when they first came out – now everyone has one. “Soccer skin” means more than just the skin that someone is wearing, at this point. It’s a term that longtime Fortnite players will likely remember for the rest of their gaming careers.

1. Dynamo

Dynamo is – by far – the most hated skin in Fortnite, at the moment. If you post a clip while wearing the Dynamo skin, you’re guaranteed to see the bulk of your replies consist of something along the lines of, “Dynamo, ew.”

We’re not exactly sure why Dynamo has its status as the most hated skin in Fortnite. Perhaps, it’s because Dynamo a very sweaty skin that isn’t difficult to get. Unlike Crystal and Aura, a lot of players think Dynamo is, simply, a bad skin on top of the fact that it’s incredibly sweaty.

Whatever the reason, wearing a Dynamo skin puts a target on your back. If you hit the island wearing Dynamo, then you better be as good as the skin suggests you are.

Epic Games

Does this list mean that you shouldn’t be wearing these skins in Fortnite? Absolutely not. In fact, a lot of players like playing the role of an antagonist in all sorts of games. It can be fun. Wear whatever you want – these are just some of the skins that are in the community’s crosshairs at the moment. We’re sure that it will change in the future. Wear what you want and have fun!

Glitches

Beware: these Fortnite car glitches can eliminate you without warning

Drive safe – especially if you’re on PlayStation.

Published

on

As we’ve stated in several of our articles, cars are the best thing to happen to Fortnite in a long time. They’re one of the only additions that truly feels new and unique to Chapter 2 – outside of fishing, of course.

Cars are awesome, but not perfect. As expected, there are a few glitches with cars in Fortnite – some more troublesome than others. Recently, we’ve seen a few clips that show players getting instantly eliminated while driving.

The first glitch involves the street lights in Misty Meadows. For some reason, these polls are more formidable than any of the other lamp posts across the rest of the map. As you’ll see from this clip – and a few more posted to Reddit – running into one of these will result in immediate death.

This isn’t the only death zone on the Fortnite map for cars. Players are also falling under the map in a few different regions. We’ve seen clips of cars falling under the map in both Lazy Lake and Pleasant Park.

Epic employee, EpicBoaty, replied to one of the clips, asking for the player to send the replay file to the QA team. They added, “if anyone is able [to] reproduce it, please immediately report it via the in-game Feedback button after encountering it, and then send me a DM so I can collect some information from you.”

The two clips of these glitches are a bit different. The above clip shows a player hitting a brick wall in Lazy before going under the map, suggesting that it was something that blocked their path.

On YouTube, however, we found another clip of a player going under the map in Pleasant Park. This time, it seems to be an issue with speed and rendering the map. It appears as though the player – on PlayStation, judging by his controller – outran the console’s ability to generate the environment, pushing him under the map.

Interestingly, EpicBoaty asked if the player was on PS4 in his comment on the Reddit thread, suggesting that this could be a PlayStation-only issue. At the same time, it seems like the QA team is still perplexed by it. There’s no mention of either of these car glitches on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello Board.

For now, we suggest that you drive with caution – especially if you play on PS4. We’ll update you if or when we learn more about this issue.
