New Fortnite leak reveals mysterious ‘Zebulon Drone’ item

Published

on

Another day, another leak. A new item or weapon coming to Fortnite may have been leaked ahead of schedule. We’re not quite sure what it is though.

Leaks about Fortnite items come on a frequent basis due to the way Epic Games leaves files laying around. Some might call it negligence, but the practice of leaving these files for data-miners is actually expert marketing.

A new leak has revealed something mysterious and unknown in the v8.30 Fortnite files. Let’s take a look.

Zebulon Drone Leaked

We don’t quite know what to call this new ‘Zebulon Drone.’ It might be an item or a weapon, but there’s no way to know for sure.

The leaks came from the well-known data miner @lucas7yoshi_. The miner managed to find a few lines of code that reference this so-called ‘Zebulon Drone.’

The code seems to be a block that would send a text block message saying “End Zebulon Drone” with a specific font type.

LucasYoshi also found another line of code that references the possible new Fortnite item.

Save The World or Battle Royale?

The Zebulon Drone could be a Save the World upgrade – via Epic Games

Since the information of the Zebulon Drone is so limited, we cannot definitively say that the item will be coming to Battle Royale.

Due to its naming structure, there’s a strong possibility that the Drone will be some type of new defense structure used in the Save The World mode. This is still a big deal, but not quite as massive as a Battle Royale addition.

The reason we believe it might be Battle Royale item is due to LucasYoshi’s history of looking specifically at Battle Royale files. Though it is possible that these files were not marked by Epic Games to specific game modes.

As for gameplay function, we can only make one assumption. The word “Drone” suggest automation, which could indicate something like an auto-turret or perhaps a drone that heals/gives shields to the player over-time.

For details, we’ll just have to wait and see what Epic has in store.

Fortnite v15.20 patch notes: Hop Rock Dualies, New & Unvaulted weapons

Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes.

Fortnite v15.20 update pistols

Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes. While official patch notes are hard to come by these days, we’ve rounded up all of the new content.

The last few weeks in Fortnite have went by without many big tweaks to the gameplay experience, and certainly a lack of new skins and cosmetics compared to times gone by.

However, a whole host of new outfits have been leaked and that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this weekly update. A new Predator crossover has also been uncovered by dataminers, meaning Predator could soon arrive in-game – with a new ship, banner, and spray leaked.

Those are, of course, unconfirmed changes though, so let’s take a look at everything we’re certain of.

Fortnite v15.20 patch notes

Hop Rock Dualies

A new set of dual pistols have arrived in Fortnite, as seen below in a tweet from VastBlast.

New & Unvaulted weapons/items

There’s four new weapons and items coming into the loot pool (well, unvaulted as well) – seen below. This was also confirmed by VastBlast.

  • Legendary Tactical Assault Rifle
  • Rare Tactical Assault Rifle (All Rarities)
  • Lever Action Shotgun
  • Uncommon Snowy Flopper

At first, the leaker thought this Sawed Shotgun was going to be headed solely for Save the World, but it’s since been confirmed to be part of the update.

Pre-edit changes

Some adjustments have been made to the Pre-Edits Option. Now, with ‘Disable Pre-Edits On,’ all player-built structures can’t be edited until they’re placed.

Fortnite x Predator crossover leaked: First look at ship, spray & banner

Published

Fortnite predator

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.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked skins

A number of brand new Fortnite skins and cosmetics have leaked following the v15.20 update in Epic Games’ battle royale title.

The game has undergone some huge changes during the course of Season 5, with The Mandalorian crossover seeing more outfits from the world of Star Wars arrive in the Fortnite Item Shop and Battle Pass rewards.

Now, however, even more are set to be added to the game after the January 13 content refresh.

The weekly update has shaken things up once again, so let’s take a look at all of the exciting skins and cosmetics to have leaked so far.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked skins

Confirmed by leaker Lucas7Yoshi, there’s three skins included in the patch. When they will be released, however, is unconfirmed at the time of writing.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked cosmetics

Aside from those three skins – named Ruby Shadows, Orin, and Tess – a plethora of cosmetics we’ve never seen before have been leaked as well.

Lucas7Yoshi revealed the following graphic just moments after the patch went live…

The dataminer also revealed, as seen in the tweet below, that two other gliders are heading into the game as well.

Two Bundles leaked

Last, but certainly not least, two skin bundles have also been uncovered by the dataminer – seen below.

These will be called the Tess bundle and MACHINIST MINA pack.

So, which skin will you be grabbing from this new set – or even cosmetic? Let us know!

If more are released by other leakers, we’ll be the first to let you know.
