It looks like Fortnite data miners were correct when the leaked a ‘TNT Bundle’ item, because Epic Games have now confirmed that Dynamite is ‘coming soon’!

The TNT Bundle was originally leaked after November 14’s v6.30 update which also introduced the controversial new Mounted Turret and the Food Fight Limited Time Mode.

Very little else was known at the time but it was clear from the leaked images that the item would resemble sticks of dynamite.

The addition of the new item was confirmed in the in-game news section of Fortnite and comes with the following description:

“Light the fuse and wait for the boom!”

Expect to see Dynamite added to the game in the next patch.

As a general rule of thumb, anything that is announced in the in-game menu is then released in the next major patch. Updates have typically been released on a Tuesday but the schedule has been somewhat less rigid throughout Season 6.

If it is released on Tuesday, though, players could be getting their hands on it as soon as tomorrow (November 20).

Presumably the Dynamite will be on a timer so players can plant it and then retreat to a safe distance to see their opponents go up in smoke. However, Epic Games like to put their own twist on things so we’ll have to wait and see if that is the case!

Stay tuned for more information about the Dynamite, and the patch that it will be released with, as it becomes available. 


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
