The Fortnite V14.50 patch is here, and as always, a new update means a new raft of cosmetics. So, here’s what we’ve got in terms of skins, backblings, pickaxes, and more. 

Despite the V14.40 patch only coming out on October 21, Epic Games have moved quickly to get the V14.50 patch out in preparation for the launches of the Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5. 

As a result, this patch is chock full of changes that get the battle royale ready for the new consoles, but, that’s not all. Jetpacks have also made a return, but they’re now courtesy of Stark Industries and should be better than ever before. 

On top of the bigger changes, as always, these patches also bring cosmetics with them – giving leakers a chance to reveal some new looks before they hit the item shop. So, here’s what we’ve got this time around. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

Following the V14.50 patch going live on PC, leakers have been hard at work trying to reveal details about what’s hitting the Fortnite store next. That includes iFireMonkey, who has revealed all the new skins and cosmetics that are coming soon.

The leak has revealed that Epic has added 15 new skins, eight new pickaxes, as well as one or two weapon wraps, gliders, music packs, loading screens, and back blings too.

In amongst all the new, never before seen skins, there are also a host of original default skins, like Jonesy and Ramirez, that are making a return in the ‘Origins’ set. This also includes a glider called ‘The O.G.’

Skin variants from Fortnite v14.50 patch

On top of all these new cosmetics, Epic has also added a handful of variants for skins as well.

Again, these come from iFireMonkey, and they’re just ever so slight changes to the skins. They’ll likely be unlockable either through challenges or being reactive to doing something in a match, say, getting a certain number of eliminations.

Now, while the leaks are always exciting, these new cosmetics won’t be available right away. The release dates for some, like the upcoming Lachlan skin, have already been revealed and they are a few days away. 

If you’ve got your eye on something in particular, you’ll just have to keep checking the daily item shop rotation to see if what you want is going to be available.

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
