New leak suggests more aim assist changes coming to Fortnite

Epic Games might be changing Fortnite aim assist again, according to this new Fortnite leak.

Published

on

We might not be experiencing the final iteration of aim assist in Fortnite. A new leak suggests Epic could be working on another system.

When Epic first added Exponential and Linear aim assist options, the controller community quickly embraced them. Some players opted to keep Legacy aim assist – or L2 spam – but most players gradually moved over to one of the two new offerings.

Several months after Epic added these new systems, they removed Legacy and forced all controller players to use Expo or Linear. Most of the community chose Linear with a few exceptions.

After balance changes and a couple of nerfs to PC aim assist, the cries of “controller players are cheaters” started to die down. Even longtime controller haters like Bugha began to change their tune.

If you’re like us, you probably assumed that Expo and Linear would end the road for aim assist. They seemed like two different and useful systems – one focused on better aim and the other on more fluid camera movements.

According to a leak from Mang0e, however, there’s a new system in the works. In Season 5, epic added a new system to the game files called “TargetingSystem” with a description that reads, “Generic Targeting System to be used for gameplay. Abilities/Aim Assist/etc.”

If this is a change to aim assist, we bet that the community won’t get behind it – at least, not right away. Aim assist conversations have died down. Buffing or nerfing aim assist with a new targeting system will only ruffle more feathers, in our opinion.

Of course, this is only a leak and may not even come to the game. If it does, we might not see it for months or even years, so it’s not worth losing sleep over. Still, don’t be surprised if Epic introduce a new aim assist system in Season 5.

Fortnite leaks confirm future Deathstroke skin

A new Fortnite leak has confirmed what we all assumed: Deathstroke from DC will come to the game as a skin.

Fortnite Season 6 Deathstroke skin

New Fortnite leaks have confirmed speculation that DC villain, Deathstroke, will be getting a Fortnite skin in the future.

The Fortnite X DC Comics Batman series has been a delight for both DC and Fortnite fans. The limited-edition series brings Batman and other heroes to the Fortnite world, along with some iconic villains.

Among the villains portrayed in the comics is Deathstroke. Since all of the characters in the comic are already in the Fortnite world, players assumed that Deathstroke would be the next DC character to get a Fortnite skin.

This was later confirmed via Fortnite leaks. Hypex, a popular Fortnite data miner, tweeted an image of a glider. Not just any glider, though. This was the glider that Deathstroke can be seen using in Issue 4 of the comic.

We don’t have the render of the skin just yet, but this glider is enough to confirm that Deathstroke will be coming to Fortnite at some point. We don’t know whether this will be through the Item Shop, a limited-time tournament, or the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Deathstroke isn’t the only skin from the DC comic that Fortnite players are drooling over. Epic recently announced that players who purchase the comics will receive a code for a free cosmetic item. Issue 1 will include an exclusive Rebirth Harley Quinn skin.

We could see Deathstroke come to Fortnite in this way, as well. We also expect to see a new Catwoman skin, a Batcave POI, and a lot more as Season 6 continues. Stay tuned to learn when all of this will come to the game.

Fortnite Season 6 leak reveals more upcoming vehicle mods

A new Fortnite Season 6 leak reveals two upcoming vehicle mods coming to the game after the Chonkers off-road tires.

The Fortnite v16.20 update brought vehicle mods to the game for the first time, but we don’t expect it to be the last we see of them.

Vehicle mods in Fortnite Season 6 have been teased since the trailer was first released. It took a few weeks for Epic to bring them to the game, but they’re finally here.

The first vehicle mod added to Fortnite is the Chonkers off-road tires. These tires, as their name suggests, make it easier for players to drive off-road as well as allows them to scale cliffs without getting out of the car.

Of course, we don’t expect this to be the only modification that Epic add to vehicles in Fortnite Season 6. More than likely, we’ll see some new mods added every patch or so until there are several options in the game.

A leak from Fortnite data miner @Hypex reinforces this speculation. According to him, there are two more unreleased vehicle mods in the game files; one for a rear bumper and one for a front bumper.

The front bumper mod will be called “Scoop” and the rear bumper mod will be called “Mega Booster.” Hypex also stated that we could see a mounted weapon on cars and even “interactable mod garages.”

The names of these mods make it clear what they’ll do. The “Mega Booster” mod will probably be some kind of rocket-propelled enhancement that makes cars go faster. If we had to guess, the “Scoop” mod will be a ramp that will make it easier to blast through structures.

As for mod garages, it’s difficult to speculate on how these will work. The Chonkers tires spawn on the ground and let players throw them onto cars. A mod garage seems a bit foreign in the current setup.

Of course, we’ll keep you posted when we learn more about these upcoming vehicle mods. Until then, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL.
