Data miners have been hard at work searching through the v8.20 update files for clues as to what will be coming to Fortnite v8.20 update on March 27 has already brought a number of new items to the game, including the Poison Dart Trap and the introduction of brand new Foraged Items, which provide health and shield to players who find the consumables.

Data miners have also leaked new cosmetic items, as well as new loading screens. One of these graphics have revealed a first glimpse at the Bow, too, as it features prominently in the Week 5 loading screen, which will be available for unlock once the new Fortnite challenges drop.

The Explosive Bow appears in the Season 8 Week 5 loading screen.

Well-known leaker, Lucas7yoshi, has also gotten his hands on some information regarding the Explosive Bow, releasing new animations that show the weapon firing a bolt, and the process of drawing the bow back before the shot takes place.

Neither the official name or the damage it will do has been revealed yet, but leakers are confident that it will fire explosive bolts. It’s likely that data miners will find more information about the weapon in the run-up to its release.

Eagle-eyed Fortnite fans will recognize that they’ve seen this weapon before, as like most items released throughout Season 8. It appeared in the very first promotional image for the season.

As with any leaks, there is no guarantee that the Explosive Bow will ever make it into Fortnite, but with the weapon appearing in loading screens already, it’s likely that we will see it in a future update – possibly as early as next week.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
