Despite recently leaving the organization, Fortnite pro Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore has praised FaZe Clan for handing their new recruits “great contracts” after the org announced the capture of Kyle ‘Mongraal‘ Jackson from Team Secret.

Back in May 2019, Cloak’s long-term teammate and friend Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney shocked the world when he revealed he would be suing the organization over an “oppressive contract”, which instantly sparked concern that Lepore was on a similar deal.

Eventually, FaZe Clan released Cloak into ‘restricted free agency’, retaining his player rights should he eventually decide to join another team, but allowing him to focus on building his brand without competing under their banner.

FAZE CLANTfue and Cloak both wanted out of FaZe Clan.

Since then, FaZe have continued to bolster their competitive Fortnite ranks, most recently signing one of the world’s top players in Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson who was transferred from Team Secret.

He joins a star-studded line up of players who have qualified on multiple occasions for the upcoming $30m Fortnite World Cup, and Cloak believes all of the new recruits will be on “great contracts”.

“Why would I be mad at Mongraal?” he asked. “He’s probably on a great contract. Every single person that has signed for FaZe recently is on an amazing contract.”

Furthermore, the 24-year-old singled out co-owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks for praise and stated he was the reason that FaZe had turned things around after the recent controversy.

He said: “Shout out to Banks for making that happen”.

YT:TFUECloak believes Banks was a key factor in FaZe’s turnaround.

Given Mongraal’s stature in competitive Fortnite, it’s more than likely that his contract will be extremely lucrative as his arrival boosts the org’s chances of having a winner in the Fortnite World Cup. 

The tournament takes place on July 26-28 in New York City, with the Brit qualified for both the solo and event, he must best former FaZe star Tfue in order to take home the $3 million grand prize.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.

In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.

The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
