Fortnite Patch v12.60 is here, and it’s starting to spell the end of Season 12. Cosmetics-wise, this patch is a bit lighter than previous ones, with only a few new skins coming.

Quality over quantity is probably the story of Fortnite v12.60 in terms of cosmetics. While there’s only a handful of new skins, pickaxes, gliders, and wraps coming in the update, some of them are bound to get players excited.

From a new Recon Expert style, to hints towards the end of Season 12, this patch certainly delivers in teasing what Fortnite players can expect over the coming weeks.

Fortnite v12.60 leaked skins

In the skins department, only a couple of new cosmetics are hitting the Fortnite Item Shop. The Renegade Shadow and Shimmer Specialist are being added as part of the Lone Shadow and Fab Force sets respectively.

The Renegade Shadow comes in four different monochrome styles, each with a different kind of headdress ⁠— from nothing at all, to glasses and a balaclava. The Shimmer Specialist lives up to her name, popping out at players with metallic trim on her jacket and bright pink stockings.

10 new styles are also being added for pre-existing skins. Six skins in the Slurp set are getting “Base” styles, while Siren and Wolf are getting Noir cosmetics. The most interesting of them all is the Recon Expert no hat style, which has got plenty of players in a tizzy.

Only the Renegade Shadow is getting an accompanying pickaxe and glider in Fortnite Patch 12.60. Players will be able to pick up the Shadow Stalker glider and the Steel Shadow pickaxe to match their new skin.

Three new wraps are coming in Fortnite’s latest update. The Camo Pulse features a fluro orange base with blue accents, while the Spectral Flex has a green rock pattern throughout.

You can finish off your Renegade Shadow set with the Shadow Seal wrap too, donning your weapons in black with a skull on the body.

Two new loading screens have also been added that point towards an explosive end to Chapter 2: Season 2.

A “Storm The Agency” loading screen with the caption “the winds of change are blowing” has dropped, which has piqued players’ interests just a few weeks out from the season finale.

Outside of this, a handful of new backblings have been added, and a new Tiny emote is also on the way. Be sure to stick with Dexerto for all the coverage you need for Fortnite Patch 12.60.


Relive the Fortnite Galactus live event: full replay, HD images, recap

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
