An interesting leak has revealed that a new Joker themed item has been added to the Fortnite’s files.

The latest Fortnite event is rapidly approaching, with Epic Games having shared the date and time for the official reveal of the Fortnite x Batman event.

Massive new changes are coming to the game, with Tilted Town being transformed into Batman’s Gotham City and multiple new special items, challenges, and rewards being added.

With the arrival of the hero, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see some of his infamous villains make an appearance, and one Joker inspired item has already been spotted.

Popular Fortnite leaker HYPEX revealed this new Joker themed item on twitter, claiming that players are getting some kind of “jam” that can be placed on walls.

Not much is known about the item, which looks like a gas canister with a device strapped onto it. However, it does stand out about as it is covered with creepy “ha ha’s” and features a Joker playing card – a staple of the Batman villain.

Some fans suggest it may be linked to some of the upcoming challenges, while others think it could be a special bomb.

As of right now, it’s difficult to say for sure, but luckily for us, the event reveal is scheduled for September 21 so we may not be left wondering for too much longer.
