It appears that the Cosmetic Refund System in Fortnite is set to be added back into the game very soon.

Sources have leaked an image in which an apparent Epic Games Player Support representative confirms that the system will be re-implemented on June 1st.

Fortnite added its Self-Service Cosmetic Refund System during Season 3, allowing players to trade back some of their purchase outfit skins, pickaxes, gliders, and emotes for a full V-Bucks refund.

Some limitations were put in place however, as each account could only refund three items lifetime, and the items all had to have been purchased during a certain period of time.

Unfortunately, the refund system was quickly disabled due to undisclosed issues, and little has been heard about it until now.

A Fortnite leaks/updates outlet known as ‘Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks’ tweeted out this image on May 21st.

Considering that this has not been officially announced or confirmed, the image should be treated as merely a speculative leak.

However, if this is indeed true, it should excite many of Fortnite’s vast fan-base who have been clamoring for the refund system to be brought back from the moment it was disabled.


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
