On the Sunday before the Fortnite 10.40 update on September 22, leakers and dataminers uncovered numerous cosmetics from the upcoming update and gave us a look at them.

Usually, we don’t get a glimpse at the new cosmetics until a patch is released but things are different this time around as the v10.40 cosmetics have become available days before the update.

There are numerous back blings, pickaxes, and skins to dig through here so let’s just dive right in and take a look.

Epic GamesNew cosmetics were revealed from the upcoming v10.40 update.

These new cosmetics, found by ShiinaBR, MaxWineBach, and FunGameLeaks, seem to take popular skins like and Cuddle Team Leader and give them a new twist.

Outside of the skins, we have several pickaxes and back blings, not to the mention the leaked load screens that show the skins in action.

There are a couple of gliders and a music pack also coming, so it looks like there’s a lot to look forward to coming up if you’re in need of some new gear from the item shop.

Unfortunately, the leaks don’t give us a good idea of what to expect with the next update in terms of direction or map changes, so we’ll have to wait for the actual update for that.

It’s possible we could be looking at even more cosmetics once the update actually releases but this is what we’re looking at for right now.

We don’t know any exact day for the update but if Epic Games keeps with the release schedule they’ve been using lately, it’d be a Thursday update.

Through most of the Season 10, the updates came out a Tuesday but with two straight Thursday updates, it’s seeming like that’ll be the case moving forward.

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits.

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
