Ninja and PewDiePie are teaming up for Friday Fortnite

Published

on

KEEMSTAR’s return of Friday Fortnite last week was an absolute success with drama, action and a lot of laughs.

The highlight had to be rapper Tory Lanez somehow winning game after game even against great players like Aydan.

Those players said that he wasn’t the one playing and the rapper released a hilarious video calling out the Fortnite community for not believing that he was playing as well as he did.

With so much drama and a staggering 10 million unique viewers according to Dexerto, week two of Friday Fortnite will have a bar to pass.

Week two is off to a good start as KEEMSTAR tweeted out that Ninja and PewDiePie will be duoing together.

Two of the largest gaming presences in the world will be taking on the bracket together, and it seems like Mr. Beast has bribed KEEMSTAR into being their first-round matchup.

KEEMSTAR as the host of Drama Alert is quite possibly the worlds foremost expert on how to stir the pot.

That ability was on hand during the first Friday Fortnite as he teamed up Ceeday and Noah, two players who got into a fight a couple of months ago.

It will be interesting to see what matchups he concocts this time around to stoke the drama and make for an interesting matchup.

Topping Tory Lanez popping off on social media while players accuse him of cheating will be tough to beat, but a duo of Ninja and PewDiePie has some seriously strong meme potential.

This is week two of the revamped Friday Fortnite which is being funded by the $60,000 FaZe Banks claims the organization took from Tfue, with $20,000 being spread out over three different weeks.

Fortnite Item Shop leak reveals Aquaman Villain

Published

on

New leaks hint at Aquaman villain Black Manta coming to Fortnite’s Item Shop in Season 3.

Epic Games has introduced many new changes following the release of Fortnite’s long-awaited Season 3, with new weapons, a flooded map and even Aquaman being added as a character in the popular battle royale.

However, it seems as if there are even more characters from the DC universe on the way, after new leaked game files were found. According to Hypex, Aquaman’s Villain Black Manta will also be added to Fortnite in Season 3.

Unlike Aquaman’s skin, which will be available through the battle pass challenges, Hypex revealed that Black Manta’s skin and the ‘Black Manta Blades’ pickaxe will be added to the Item Shop.

The DC Villain is expected to arrive in Fortnite’s Item Shop on Thursday, June 16 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM BST/ 5 PM CEST.

While an early look at the new skin and blades has not yet been revealed, it will likely look quite similar to how the character was portrayed in the Aquaman movie.

With the upcoming release of this new character and rumors swirling about a potential Atlantis point-of-interest being added in Season 3, it is possible that Black Manta could play a role in some of the upcoming changes leading into the next season.

The Atlantis location is expected to arrive once the water level has decreased enough, and the final stage of the map has already been revealed by leakers.

Fortnite v13.20 Update patch notes

Published

on

It’s a new week, and that means that there’s a fresh update for us all to enjoy, as the Fortnite v12.30 patch goes live on all platforms on Tuesday, June 30, introducing a new weapon and a major change to an existing item.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has been live for a few weeks, and while the first major update of the season made sweeping changes to the game, Epic haven’t sat on their hands, dropping the 13.10 update to add Firefly Jars, and a second patch on June 30.

The Flare Gun and Portable Upgrade Benches are the major inclusions in this week’s patch, and we’ve got everything you need to know about the new items.

Flare Gun

Epic love to include new weapons for us to try out, and the v13.20 Update is no exception, with the Flare Gun finally making it’s long-awaited debut in the game.

The weapon, which holds six cartridges and deals 60 damage on a direct hit, was first spotted in the game’s files all the way back in Chapter 1, but for one reason or another never made it to the full game. Finally, though, it’s arrived, and with its ability to start fires, it is the perfect way to burn through enemy structures and send them back to the pre-game lobby.

The Flare Gun is the latest weapon added to Fortnite.

Portable Upgrade Bench

The other major change is the to the Upgrade Bench, which can now be broken and carried around to be used whenever you need it.

Simply hit it with your harvesting tool and it will transform into floor loot, which you can pick up and place in your inventory.

The Upgrade Bench can now be broken.

Loserfruit Fortnite skin

The next cosmetic item in Fortnite’s Icon series, this time for streamer Loserfruit, has been leaked, with the release date all but confirmed for June 21.

Following on from Ninja’s skin release earlier in the year, Loserfruit, one of the most popular Australian streamers, has been waiting on her skin coming to the game for months now.

Its initial launch was pushed back due to ongoing protests around the world, but it looks like it’s finally getting a proper release.

On June 21, a handful of leakers got their hands on the encrypted files for the skin, and accessed them, showcasing a full, high-quality look at the skin we’ll soon be able to rock in-game.

Featuring a replica of Loserfruit’s hoody with rainbow-colored arms, the arm portions light up spectacularly, and there is also a backpack that mirrors her own real-life version.

Loserfruit skin release date and price

The skin is set to release on June 21, now confirmed by Epic Games. Reliable data miner iFireMonkey says that a source has confirmed this date for the entire bundle.

The bundle includes a fruity pickaxe too, as well as the Bounce Berry emote.

The skin will be available at 8pm ET. It will cost 1,500 V-Bucks for just the skin, or 2,000 for the whole bundle.

Loserfruit herself is actually already rocking the skin in-game on her stream, thanks to exclusive access before the rest of us, so you can see it in action here.

We’ll keep you updated when the skin bundle is available to purchase in the item shop.
