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 leak reveals 2 new Kevin-themed skins coming soon
Kevin the Cube could be returning to Fortnite, this time in the form of a skin, leaked by data miners in the v15.20 update.
According to Fortnite leaks, Epic are working on two skins that bring Kevin the Cube to life
Before the most recent Fortnitemares event, data miners found a file that related to an upcoming skin. This skin was called “Fancy Kevin,” and had players excited for what was to come. Some even suggested that the skin would be free for the event.
Well, Fortnitemares came and went with no new Kevin skin. After that, most people forgot about Fancy Kevin.
That was until the v15.20 update, where the previously-leaked Kevin skin got an update. Along with that was a new Kevin-themed skin that we hadn’t seen mentioned before.
The initial leak came alongside a leaked jetpack, which we assumed had something to do with Tony Stark. It wasn’t until Season 5 released that we learned that this was actually The Mandalorian’s Jetpack.
It seems like Fancy Kevin and his new partner will follow a similar path – leaked a whole season before their eventual release. There’s even a chance that these skins will be the Season 5 secret skin, although that’s a long-shot.
We’ll have to wait and see what becomes of Fancy Kevin, but it’s good to know that Epic haven’t forgotten about him.
It’s safe to assume that Fancy Kevin and his leaked counterpart will enter Season 5 at some point. As always, we’ll keep you posted when we learn more.
Fortnite x Predator crossover leaked: First look at ship, spray & banner
Fortnite has been adding a number of hunters since The Mandalorian first landed on the island, and it looks like Predator might be next – if leaks are accurate.
The game has seen some insane crossovers in the last year or two, including those from the DC Comics, Marvel and Star Wars universes.
Well, next on that list might be one of the deadliest extraterrestrial attackers.
On January 13, following the v15.20 update, dataminer Lucas7Yoshi revealed a new ‘Nightmare Ship’ leak for Fortnite.

As you can see, this is the ship of Predator, from the movie series that started in 1987.
Fortnite Predator ship, spray & banner leaked
Not only that, but VastBlast has doubled down on that with a new spray leak, which clearly shows Predator is on the way in some shape or form.
Based on the arrival of Mando in his Star Wars ship, we can likely expect to see Predator join the action soon as a boss on the map – just like other NPCs that have been added during the season.
Once we have more information, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
