Concepts

This Fortnite skin would serve as ‘Protector of Flush Factory’

Published

on

Fortnite gets a plethora of concepts from artists and content creators everyday. Epic Games certainly has a hard job to choose ideas that properly fit their game’s vision, but we think this one would be perfect addition.

Fortnite’s map changes constantly as Epic Games seeks to balance additional map content and map balance. Locations are destroyed, hills moved, rivers averted, and volcanoes erupted.

A causality of the constant and ever-changed map structure in Season 7 was the toilet factory known as Flush Factory. Long may its memory grace us with fond memories of mediocre loot and porcelain thrones.

The community has long been thinking of good ways to pay tribute to forgotten locations that have been crushed by purple cubes or ice-bergs. We think this concept nails it while also potentially making Epic Games a little richer at the same time.

Reddit user “brimmaudo” has created a skin and item set based around the old Flush Factory location.

Finally got a colored version of my Flush Factory concept skin! Many thanks to /r yg99 to making it happen! from r/FortNiteBR

This concept pack is quite thorough and includes everything you would expect from a Epic Games set.

Double pickaxes in the form of a bathroom brush and a monkey wrench, a towel and 2-ply toilet paper back bling, and the Potty Mouth skin itself can be found within the pack.

The items could be sold as a part of a pack offered as a special event purchase or separately. The latter is more likely due to it being Epic’s preferred method of delivering themed sets.

The idea gave us a a little inspiration to start thinking of ways to pay proper attention to the “dead” or deleted locations of Fortnite. We think these types of packs could be just the thing for other locations as well.

Each old location could have a set of items crafted specifically for its theme (naturally not every location would work for this concept). The packs could released at 2-3 month intervals and sold as a sort of “nostalgia” item.

We like to think the name of the Potty Mouth skin’s character is Mario. Perhaps Luigi.

Fortnite Item Shop leak reveals Aquaman Villain

Published

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.

Patch Notes

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.
