There are only a few leaked cosmetics and items left to be released from Fortnite’s recent V5.2 patch files but they’re also some of the most exciting!

With the official release of the the highly anticipated Whiteout outfit, Overtaker outfit, Cyclone glider and White Squall glider on August 16, the skins listed below are all that we are aware of that is left to be released before the V5.3 update.

First and foremost comes the P.A.N.D.A Team Leader outfit that has kept everyone on the edge of their seat since it was first leaked.

With its “Legendary” rarity, and its similarities to the ever popular Cuddle Team Leader outfit, expect to see a great deal of players purchase this item no matter the cost!


The only other outfit that we are aware of that is yet to be released is called Sushi Master.

This outfit has a rarity rating of “Rare” and shows a character wearing what seems to be a martial arts outfit:


The release of the Cyclone and White Squall gliders means that the only leaked glider yet to be released is the Uncommon “Flying Fish”.

There’s a similar story with pickaxes – the Lane Splitter and Ignition were part of the Overtaker and Whiteout sets so the only axe left to be released is the Rare “Filet Axe”.


As for back bling, we still have the Chef’s Choice and Bamboo to look forward to! Chef’s Choice will be a Rare item while Bamboo is classified as Legendary.


It is always possible that more skins, cosmetics and items have slipped through the fingers of various data miners but it seems likely that these are the final few items yet to be released before the next update.

You won’t have long to wait, though, as the next patch is expected to go live on Tuesday, August 21.


xQc slams Fortnite’s competitive changes as “unfair” in Season 5

Twitch streamer Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has slammed the current state of Fortnite’s competitive arena mode and the casual features it includes. 

The release of Fortnite’s Season 5 has brought a wealth of changes and new content for players to check out. These new features include new NPC’s, dialogue, and side missions which have been added to both the standard and competitive mode.

Epic’s decision to add these extra features to Fortnite’s competitive mode has displeased certain members of the community. Twitch personality xQc has voiced his opinion on the matter in a heated rant whilst streaming.

xQc criticizes Fortnite’s competitive mode in rant

Everybody enjoys checking out new features in games, especially when it’s as exciting as a new season in Fortnite. New dialogue, music, and NPC’s all assist in making gameplay more immersive and fun, but should they be added into a game’s competitive mode?

That’s the ongoing debate taking place in the Fortnite community as Epic has opted to add all of Season 5’s new features to the competitive mode. This had led to members of the community arguing that these features water down the competitive nature of arena matches.

Twitch personality xQc has expressed his view on the topic, slamming Fortnite’s competitive mode in a rant on stream: “how is that I queue for a competitive game mode and there is quests to do, there’s bots, there’s side missions… I queued to play against players.”

As you can see, it’s obvious xQc isn’t the biggest fan of the new features added to competitive.

A competitive mode should provide players with an environment in which skill determines a victor. Therefore, it’s easy to see why members of the Fortnite community are frustrated that these features are being added to arena matches.

A solution offered by xQc is to clearly establish a casual and competitive mode: “I feel a lot of the time this game tries to bridge competitive and casual at the same time… that’s unfair to people who only care about competitive.”

Currently, casual and competitive receive the same features so it’s difficult to establish a difference between the two.

This is certainly an issue Epic may have to address if the community continues to complain about the cluttered state of the game’s competitive mode.
