The Fortnite v15.40 update released some new and leaked NPC voice lines that hint towards a massive season-ending event to close Season 5.
Fortnite Season 4 was a standalone season, in many ways. Instead of focusing on the overarching Fortnite plot, it was a deviation while the Marvel heroes dealt with Galactus.
In Season 5, things picked back up again. We may have gotten more information in Chapter 2 Season 5 than we’ve had for the entirety of Fortnite’s lifespan. We’re at the point where we even think we’ve cracked the case of the Fortnite story.
In v15.40, Epic added some new NPC voice lines to the game that point to what many of us assumed: Season 5 will have a season-ending event that will relate to the Zero Point. Here’s what we learned after the most recent update.
New & leaked Fortnite voice lines
Several Fortnite characters have had their voice lines either updated or leaked. Lexa now has a specific voice line attached to her brother, Orin, which isn’t huge news in any way.
Some of the other leaked lines seem to relate to one of the skins that have yet to be released. Both Kondor and Ragnarok have a specific reaction to a particular skin, but that skin isn’t here yet.
The most interesting voice lines come from characters that are already in the game. Mancake, Deadfire, and Bunker Jonesy all have new voice lines when you approach them. The former two are located near the Zero Point and the latter has been the catalyst of many Season 5 theories.
Hypex, who released all of these voice lines, didn’t go into much detail about what these could mean for the future of Fortnite. If we had to guess, we’d say that they’re preparing us for a season-ending event.
The characters around the Zero Point are taking notice of some changes. At this point, we’d be surprised if the Zero Point didn’t destabilize and take us to another dimension – possibly the in-between from the Butterfly Event.
Only time will tell, but the end of Fortnite Season 5 is now a month away. Epic may be preparing us for something big

How to get Beast Boy and Raven cosmetics in Fortnite
Beast Boy is coming to Fortnite to assist Raven on her journey. Here’s how to unlock all of their cosmetic items.
Epic Games has announced that another member of the Teen Titans, Beast Boy, will be coming to Fortnite. Players can earn exclusive Beast Boy and Raven cosmetics by competing in an upcoming tournament.
Beast Boy and Raven are long-standing members of the DC superhero group the Teen Titans. Raven was revealed to be in Fortnite at the start of Chapter 2 Season 6. She can be unlocked as a playable character by reaching tier 72 of this season’s Battle Pass.
The appearance of Batman and several other DC characters has also been a large focus of Season 6. Now, a couple of members of the Teen Titans are being highlighted as Beast Boy enters the mix. Fortnite teased his appearance through a series of comic panels and has officially revealed his cosmetic set.
Earning Beast Boy & Raven cosmetics
Just like Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4, Beast Boy’s cosmetic set is up for grabs as a part of an upcoming tournament. However, there are other rewards that don’t require a top-placing position to earn. There are also exclusive rewards that can only be obtained by participating in the tourney.
The Teen Titans Cup is a Duos tournament set to take place on May 12. Players who participate in the tourney will earn the Raven Spray. Players who earn 8 points of more will unlock the BBRae Loading Screen. And the top placing teams will be rewarded with the Beast Boy Outfit and Couch Titan Back Bling.
For those who don’t manage to come out on top, there’s still a way to get the Beast Boy set. While the loading screen and spray are exclusive to the tourney, the Beast Boy set will be for sale in the Item Shop on May 13.
The Beast Boy skin comes with two styles and a built-in emote. The set also includes the BB’s Beast Bat pickaxe which can only be obtained by purchasing it in the item shop. All three items can be purchased as a discounted bundle once the cosmetics release.
Best Prop Hunt maps available to play now in Fortnite
Prop Hunt has long been part of collective gaming culture. The mode has finally arrived in Fortnite and it looks to be a whole lot of fun!
Due to some mishaps on the part of Epic, Fortnite has been suffering some negative strides. In order to switch things back around, the devs need a successive streak of victories.
Prop Hunt has been a much asked for ‘just for fun’ mode and Epic is now delivering. This, along with great v9.30 changes, could really bring back a lot of excitement for Fortnite!
Prop Hunt playable now in Fortnite
Fortnite’s Creative mode is a stirring pot of creative genius and remarkable talents. For the lucky few chosen by Epic, the creations made in Creative become legendary adventures played by millions.
Prop Hunt has been brought to life by a team of talented Creative creators. The team at StrayKite managed to create a replica of the classic experience that plays like a dream.
The mode is available to play now in Creative & Playground lobbies.
The basic rules of Prop Hunt are as follows:
- Props are given a set amount of time to hide before Seekers try to find them
- Each Prop can switch between differing objects a certain amount of times
- Seekers try to find all the Props before the time limit is reached. If they manage to do so, the Seekers win.
- If all Props are not found, the Props win.
Epic Games has not given any end-date for the Prop Hunt island feature, but the prop hunt mode can always be played from here on out. This can be done by using the Island Code provided by Epic (6069-9263-9110).
Using the Creative mode’s configuration settings, you can also create custom Prop Hunt game types. This includes longer Seeker time limits, stricter win conditions, banned props, and more. More options will be added for the mode in the future.

Fortnite introduces Wild Weeks starting with an emphasis on fire
Fortnite is introducing Wild Weeks which highlight a different gameplay mechanic every week. This week emphasizes fire weapons.
Epic Games announced Fortnite Wild Weeks where each week a new gameplay mechanic will be emphasized. This week, players will fight fire with fire as flame weapons are in the spotlight.
Fortnite Wild Weeks are starting today, May 6, and are planned to continue for the duration of Chapter 2 Season 6. Each week players will notice a shift in loot pool and an emphasis on different gameplay mechanics. These changes will last for one week before swapping to the next Wild Week.
Chapter 2 Season 6 has been a relatively tame season of Fortnite. The map hasn’t changed severely, there haven’t been a ton of crossovers, and the pool of weapons has stayed relatively the same. In a season that’s supposed to focus on the unruly nature of the primal island, it’s been a surprisingly calm few weeks.
Introducing Wild Weeks with fire
That is until Epic Games decided to implement Wild Weeks. So far, it doesn’t seem like these events will have a drastic effect on the season, but they will spice up gameplay. Starting today, players will have to fight fire with fire in the first-ever Wild Week.
Fortnite’s first Wild Week focuses on weapons that can set structures on fire. Players will find Flame Bows and Firefly jars more often when looting chests. Gas canisters and gas tanks will be found more often around the map. And the Flare Gun has returned for this week only.
As well, the weekly Legendary quests reflect the theme of the Wild Week. The first Fortnite Wild Week challenges have players destroying hundreds of builds using flammable weaponry. Seeing as there will be so many Flame Bows available to players, this week’s challenges should be a breeze.
As for what players can expect in the weeks to come, they will have to wait to find out. In an Epic Games blog post, the next three Fortnite Wild Weeks are set to starts on May 13, May 20, and June 3. With Season 6 set to end on June 7, players can expect to see a new Wild Week for the duration of the season.
