Several competitive Fortnite players allege they haven’t been paid their winnings yet and Epic Games responded to those claims and more in a new blog post.

With Epic Games leaving so much money up for grabs for players to earn on a weekly basis, many players have thrown their hat into the ring to win a quick buck.

However, many players are claiming they haven’t received their payments from Epic Games, leading to them to create a response.

Payment improvements are coming

According to Epic, improvements to the payment process are coming and they will give updates on when players can now expect their money.

On top of that, a more intuitive landing page is being created so players will much more easily be able to track their earned money. This includes Epic sending out email updates and making the tax information process all available in one spot.

Epic Games mentions that if you won any money before April 2019, you’ll still have to use the previous payment flow, so you’ll be without all the new added bells and whistles. 

You can read about the changes much more in-depth in Epic’s blog post here.

For new Fortnite competitors, it sounds like you won’t have to worry about Epic losing track of your payments anymore.

While this isn’t a direct response to complaints among players, it does help alleviate many of the concerns players had. 

With thousands of dollars being offered each week, it’s important to make sure there’s a fluid payment process and it looks like Epic Games is working towards fixing that.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
