Fortnite developers Epic Games have removed cosmetic bundles from the game’s Item Shop entirely, due to an error reported early on November 25.

While the Wukong and Rex cosmetic bundles had already been made available for purchase, some players got an early glimpse of the upcoming Highland Warrior bundle in the Item Shop – however, according to Epic developer MrPopoTFS, this was actually an error.

MrPopoTFS explained the incident in a Reddit post shortly after the bundle went live, claiming that its availability was an accident, and that the team would be removing all bundles from the Shop in an effort to fix the glitch.

“We’ve removed bundles currently while we investigate an error associated with them,” MrPopo wrote. “Hotfixes sometimes take a little longer for all servers to receive them, so some players may have seen the bundle version of the store for a short time.”


Fortnite’s bundles contain a collection of cosmetics for players to express themselves in-game, including such resources as a pickaxe, glider, and a skin altogether for a lower price (as opposed to buying each item individually).

The now-removed Highland Warrior bundle contained the female Highland Warrior Skin (Epic), the Buckler Back Bling (Epic), the Silver Fang Pickaxe (Rare), and the Storm Sigil Glider (Uncommon). You can check out pics of the goodies below:

While Epic have yet to place bundles back in the Shop, fans can expect them to go live again once the hotfix has been implemented across Fortnite’s servers. 

Until then, players will have to wait – but you can take our Fortnite Location Quiz to test your game knowledge, in the interim.


Fortnite leak reveals size of upcoming Venom skin and it’s scary

A Fortnite leak has revealed the size of the upcoming Venom skin, and it looks like it’s going to be pretty big.

Over the course of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, some of the most well-known and much loved Marvel character have been available to purchase as a skin, or have had their abilities be playable in-game.

That includes the likes of Iron Man, Thor, and Groot, but there are still some characters that have been rumored, and even leaked, to be coming to the battle royale that still haven’t made an appearance. 

Venom, the adversary of Spider-Man, has been teased as a new skin given that his abilities have been seen in-game through the Marvel limited-time mode. Though, a first-look hasn’t been leaked just yet.

Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

Well, while leakers haven’t been able to show off the new skin just yet, they have been able to reveal just how big it’ll look in-game. 

“Venom is confirmed to be a skin and it’s supposed to be large like Brutus,” reliable leaker HYPEX tweeted on October 29. As anyone who has played the last few seasons of Fortnite knows, Brutus is one of the game’s bigger and bulky characters. 

So, it looks like Venom will be coming in his bigger than usual form – rather than fitting into a usually tiny frame like Jonesy or the other defaults. Though, some fans would also like to see a normal Eddie Brock skin, similar to how there’s also a Tony Stark skin. 

On top of the Venom confirmation, HYPEX also noted that fellow leaker intercelluar uncovered two other skins with the code names ‘PinkRaptor’ and ‘LunchBox’.

Given that Epic Games love to hide their skin behind these cryptic names, there’s no telling for sure as to what they could be, and we’ll just have to wait until a leaker manages to make them public.
