It appears that Xbox has updated its Dashboard too early by mistake, accidentally revealing details about Season 5 in Fortnite.

An advertisement has appeared on the Xbox One Dashboard earlier than expected, providing the first glimpse at what appear to be some of the skins that will be available in the game’s upcoming Season. 

Images of the ad began surfacing on social media on July 11, with Twitter user ‘_7Jamesbown’ tweeting out these images.

The character in the middle, closest in the foreground, is holding a mask that looks very similar to the one that Fortnite tweeted out on July 9 as a teaser for Season 5.

The other two skins are not similar to anything seen or leaked before, and do not offer real clues as to what lays in store next Season.

Leaks are commonplace when it comes to Fortnite, but are usually not the result of errors like these but are rather discovered and shared after data miners sift through game files following a major update is released.

With Season 5 schedule to launch on July 12 at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET. this advertisement, assuming that it is legitimate, will have gone live nearly 7 hours earlier than intended.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Ruckus is holding both of the weapons in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
