5 leaked Fortnite items potentially coming soon

The April 8 maintenance patch for Fortnite may have been small, but a few big changes were hidden deep in the game files, raising suspicions about further changes coming to the battle royale in coming weeks.

The April 8 patch for Fortnite was more to fix performance issues rather than introduce new content into the game. With the next season on the horizon, and the Deadpool event well underway, there wasn’t much to add.


However, in the future, there could be some exciting changes on the way, with data miners uncovering new items ready to add in upcoming patches.

The Deadpool event is well underway in Fortnite, but these leaked items could reveal what’s coming next.

The five items were discovered by ‘Spedicey1’ in the rather empty April 8 maintenance update. While they only exist as code strings right now ⁠— with no images available ⁠— players might now have a little idea of what to expect.


The unreleased items include a new Rocket Launcher, Tornado Grenades, itemized Upgrade Stations, a Clone Machine, and a Chug Stand.

The full list of strings and descriptions Spedicey found are listed below:

  • WID_Athena_LumpyRug (new type of rocket launcher)
  • WID_ShakingTurtle (tornado grenade)
  • AGID_Wumba (itemized upgrade stations)
  • AGID_CoolMammoth (clone machine)
  • Athena_ChuckleSaddleItem (chug stand)

Items getting added into the game files doesn’t mean they’ll be pushed to players, however. Some of these new pieces of equipment may never see the light of day in Fortnite.


However, some of these changes could shake up how the meta of the battle royale evolves.

Upgrade benches have been a point of contention for Fortnite players ⁠— especially since the release of Warzone and its buy stations ⁠— and expanding their power could increase customization for players every game.

Fortnite’s upgrade benches could be getting some new bonuses very soon.

It could also make way for gold material to finally have a use in Fortnite. Players cashing in gold to get upgrades to their weaponry seems to be the popular consensus as to how upgrade stations will operate if they’re changed in the future, although nothing is confirmed.


The soonest some of these new features will be implemented is Patch v12.40, which will be dropped on April 14. However, it’s likely that we won’t see any of these items for quite some time.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
