Right on schedule, data miners have once again dug into the game files of Fortnite to uncover the next 14 Days of Fortnite challenge and reward prior to release. 

No challenge or reward is safe from data miners in Fortnite, as each day they have managed to unearth new information on the upcoming events for the 14 Days of Fortnite event. 

As we near the end of the 14-day event, things haven’t changed at all with the latest leak on December 27. 

While the challenge leaks have been hit and miss as Epic Games continues to keep everyone guessing, the reward leaks have been spot on each day. As such, players can expect this to be the reward for Day 10 of the event.  

Day 10 will bring another item for players to unlock.

Given that there are only five challenges left on the list of previously leaked challenges, it’s become a bit easier to predict what’s coming next during the event. 

It’s also been noted that each challenge has been increasing in quantity each day, such as dancing in front of nine Holiday Trees on Day 9.  

14 Days of Fortnite has given players a new item every single day.

While not confirmed, the next challenge is believed to be “Destroy different snowflake decorations,” which players will have to do 10 times given that it’s Day 10 of the event. 

Of course, there has been no official confirmation on the matter and we don’t find out until the challenge unlocks on December 28 whether this is indeed the next challenge. 

Once the challenge and reward do go live, we’ll have a guide on how to complete it as quickly as possible. 

In the meantime, head over to our official 14 Days of Fortnite hub for guides on the previous challenges through Day 9.

Epic responds to concerns over leaked Fortnite player logins

Fortnite players have made big claims that Epic is leaking player logins through the battle royale’s in-game leaderboard. However, the developer has insisted the system is safe, and there’s been no evidence of hacked accounts through it.

Security scares are no joke, and while developers do their best to keep them underwraps, they can sometimes appear where you least expect them.

That’s what Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber was claiming after being mysteriously logged out of his account. The Built By Gamers player claimed Fortnite’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ private information, including email addresses.

People could then use these emails to either try and brute force hack accounts, or reset passwords and kick players out of the game.

“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.

“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally ⁠— on Twitter, it means nothing normally ⁠— but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”

“This has happened to Clix, Nick Eh 30, Nate Hill ⁠— everyone. Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it ⁠— it’s disgraceful.”

However, people aren’t sold on Yung’s story. Fortnite dataminer ‘FNBRUnreleased’ has stated that it’s impossible. Epic’s API doesn’t allow for the sharing of information like Yung and others think.

“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they claimed.

FNBRUnreleased’s standpoint has been backed up by Epic. The developer published a statement in response to Yung’s claims, saying leaderboards do not leak any players’ secure information.

“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.

“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

For now, players should just always make sure their passwords are strong to best protect against any leak. Plus, turn on two-factor authentication if you can.
