Fortnite v12.40 may have come a day later than players were expecting, but it looks like they have been dutifully rewarded for their patience – if these new leaked skins and cosmetics are anything to go by. 

The game’s latest update looks to be carrying on from the Deadpool event that has taken the battle royale by storm of late, getting more Marvel members into the mix.

The X-Force are making their re-entry into Fortnite with three new characters being represented, but if that isn’t your thing, there’s still plenty more cosmetics you might be keen to get your hands on. Let’s take a look through all of the leaks.

Fortnite v12.40 leaked skins

Nine skins have been leaked following the latest update. Three of them are tied to the Marvel Series X-Force set ⁠— with characters Domino, Psylocke, and Cable making their way to Fortnite.

Another two seem to be tied to the Deadpool event. The lovable Marvel character is getting a cute Cuddlepool skin, and a rather contracting Ravenpool skin. Both of these are going to be found in the Item Shop, so it’s unlikely they’ll be tied to the recent happenings in-game.

The base Deadpool skin will also be getting a special X-Force style, too, which players can pick up as part of the on-going event. Leaker HYPEX, as seen below, revealed it shortly after the patch downtime started up.

Siren and Wolf are two skins in the new Hit Squad set. Both skins have an incognito-undercover vibe to them, with a heavy focus on dark colors and secrecy. These were leaked by Lucas7yoshi.

On the other hand, you’ve got the lights of Guff and Synth. Guff is a massive bird-like creature with bright features, while Synth gets around in a bright orange trench coat. All these skins are expected to be periodically released, in due course.

Fortnite v12.40 leaked pickaxes and gliders

A lot of special pickaxes are on the way, too. Each of the new X-Force characters ⁠— Domino, Psylocke, and Cable ⁠— will get their own special pickaxes players can pick up. Those are the Probability Dagger, Unstoppable Force, and Psi-blade respectively.

There’s some more generic harvesting tools coming as well, tied to other new skins. The Regal Floof, Light Knives, XO Axes, Harmonic Flux, and Reflex Blades are all part of sets released in v12.40.

Glider wise, only two new models have been uncovered. The Psi-rider will allow players to complete the Psylocke set, while the Flux Flier would be a perfect addition to your Synth skin.

Fortnite v12.40 leaked wraps and music packs

Three wraps and one music pack have also been leaked. The Blue Shock and Frosty Glow wraps are well ⁠— blue ⁠— while the Banner wrap is a mix of red and brown, with the iconic Llama painted on the side.

The new music pack is called the Prima Remix, and it’ll be available in the Item Shop shortly. There’s no audio files for it out yet, however.

Outside of this, FNCS 2020 got its place in the game properly with the addition of new sprays, while a handful of new emotes are coming as well. Stick with Dexerto for all the major updates to come in the battle royale title.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points

  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
