New ‘Yellow Jacket’ Fortnite starter pack leaked

A new starter pack called ‘Yellow Jacket’ should be hitting the Fortnite Item Shop soon.

Published

on

Starter packs have drastically evolved over the course of Fortnite. We started with the bot-friendly Rogue and Wingman starter packs before moving into the ‘sweaty’ category with Laguna and, most recently, Iris.

Fortnite data miners have found the next starter pack in the game files. This one will be called ‘Yellow Jacket’ and will feature a skin, pickaxe, and 600 V-Bucks. We will likely see a back bling for the skin as well.

We can’t be 100% sure without an official confirmation, but it’s safe to assume that the pack will cost $5 USD. You’ll be getting more than your money’s worth of V-Bucks along with a new skin.

The skin, itself, looks to become a popular one. The Pickaxe might not be as attractive as Iris’ pickaxe, but it will still be a staple of bargain-hunting ‘sweaty’ players.

We don’t have any news of when the Yellow Jacket set will come to the Item Shop, but it could be as early as May 6 – when the Star Wars pack leaves, once again.

Iris will likely leave the shop when Yellow Jacket enters, so make sure you pick her up if you’re interested. This skin has been one of the more common sights since its release, early in Season 2.

How to get the Last Laugh Bundle in Fortnite

Don’t worry! The Last Laugh bundle will be available for digital purchase.

The Last Laugh bundle in Fortnite

One of the most anticipated bundles in the history of Fortnite is now available: The Last Laugh bundle.

This set will contain a new and improved Midas skin, the DC villain Poison Ivy, and the reason a lot of players are grabbing this bundle: The Joker. When you take a look at the Fortnite Item Shop, however, the bundle is nowhere to be seen.

If you visit the official Fortnite website, you’ll see that the bundle is now available in stores for PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch players. Android and PC players don’t seem to have a way to buy the skin bundle, at this time.

For now, the bundle only appears to be offered in hard-copy format. It’s available in stores, so players will need to visit their local GameStop, Best Buy, or Walmart if they can’t wait to have The Joker in their lockers.

There’s good news for those who don’t want to go to the store. In Epic’s official announcement of the skin set, they told players that it would be available for digital purchase through Item Shop. It will still cost real money (not V-Bucks), but you will be able to buy it digitally at some point.

We don’t know when the Last Laugh Bundle will come to Fortnite in digital form but it could be as soon as this evening when the Item Shop resets (8pm EST). We’ll update this article when the digital bundle goes live in the Item Shop.

In the meantime, follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL. We’ll tweet about the Item Shop reset if it brings the Last Laugh bundle with it, so you’ll be among the first to know.

How to get the new Venom Bundle for free in Fortnite

Venom is finally coming to Fortnite. Here’s how to unlock his cosmetic bundle for free.

Published

The time that many players have been waiting for is finally nearing: a Venom skin in Fortnite. After weeks of playing with Venom’s Superpower in the Marvel-themed LTMs, we’re finally set to unlock the skin through the Item Shop or Marvel Knockout Super Series.

For those who don’t know, the Marvel Knockout Super Series is a weekly tournament series that uses the Marvel Knockout format. Winners of each stage of the tournament will qualify for the final event and will have a chance to earn real money for their placements.

The first stage of the tournament only offers skins as a reward, however, which is enough for a lot of players to compete. On November 16, Epic released a teaser for their next tournament: The Venom Cup.

We don’t have an official date at the time of writing, but common sense and past experience dictate that the Venom Cup will take place on Wednesday, November 18. We’re also expecting a patch this week, which should bring a leaked version of the Venom skin along with it.

You’ll need to place high enough within your region to earn the Venom skin. It’s a tough mark to hit, as only 800 players in Europe will earn the skin for free and only 700 players in North America can unlock it.

Here’s a breakdown of the scoring system and placement threshold for each region of the Venom Cup.

Scoring System

  • 1st: 25 points
  • 2nd: 10 points
  • 3rd-4th: 5 points
  • 5th-8th: 3 points
  • 9th-16th: 1 point

Required Placement for free Venom skin

  • Europe: 1st – 1,200th
  • NA-East: 1st – 750th 
  • NA-West: 1st – 300th
  • Brazil: 1st – 300th
  • Asia: 1st – 150th
  • Oceana: 1st – 150th 
  • Middle East: 1st – 150th 

We don’t know what other cosmetics will come along with the Venom bundle, but fans are expecting a unique pickaxe that morphs into Venom’s arm. We can only hope that this one is available for use with other skins and isn’t locked to Venom like other cosmetics in the game.

Don’t worry if you’re eager to unlock Venom but don’t want to compete in the Venom Cup. He’ll be hitting the Item Shop after the tournament ends, just like the rest of the Marvel skins. You can expect to see him as early as this weekend.

How to get the free Surf Strider bundle in Fortnite

Intel has partnered with Fortnite to bring a free Surf Strider bundle to their customers. Here’s how to claim it.

Published

Fortnite is no stranger to platform-specific skin bundles, but it’s no secret that some platforms have gotten more love than others. PlayStation has several exclusive Fortnite skins with more on the way, while Xbox only has one or two.

PC players have been able to unlock some exclusive skins, but only if they have the right hardware. Epic have partnered with companies like Nvidia to offer their customers free Fortnite skins, but AMD never got any love.

This time around, it’s Intel CPU owners on PC who are able to grab an exclusive Fortnite skin. Epic and Intel announced their partnership and a free Surf Strider bundle – including the skin, pickaxe and glider.

As the promotional image says, this bundle is only available for PC players who have Intel Core processors. This means that PC players who have AMD processors are out of luck, in this instance.

Unlocking the bundle is a lot like unlocking all of the other brand-specific Fortnite cosmetics that have come before. You’ll need to visit the Intel website at softwareoffer.intel.com/Bonus, create an account, and link it with your Epic Games account.

From there, the Intel Page will run a test to ensure that your PC is eligible and award you with the skin. Here’s a video from data miner, Hypex, on how to complete the process.

The website appears to be down at the time of writing and seemed to be that way this past weekend, as well – ever since this promotion became widespread news. This is likely because so many Fortnite players are trying to claim their free skin bundle.

The promotion is set to last until February 2021, so you have plenty of time to claim the skin – even if it takes the website a full week to recover. We’ll keep this post updated when the website begins to pick up again.
