After weeks of speculation, Epic Games have finally released for the first teaser for Fortnite Season 10 during the solo World Cup final.

Season 9 is rapidly drawing to a close after a massive battle took place on the map between the Cattus monster and the Doggus robot. Ultimately, the monster was slain after the intense showdown which left a giant orb at Loot Lake – something which could directly affect the new season.

Before the start of each season, Epic Games release teaser images, giving fans a glimpse of what to expect when it finally releases. The first picture for Season 10 was released during the Fortnite World Cup solo finals.

Dusty Depot has seen numerous changes over the seasons after being hit by a meteor, but it will be recovered in Season 10.

Fortnite Season 10 – what we know so far

Fortnite Season 10 is expected to release on August 1 after the current season was extended due to the World Cup. While players were competing in New York, fans were given the first hint as to what the new season could consist of.

A leak on the PlayStation store showed the Fortnite Battle Bus with a large ‘X’ symbol in the background. With the number 10 in Roman numerals written with the letter ‘X’, it was speculated that it may correlate directly with the next season.

Will Season 10 have a battle pass? 

As always, the battle pass for the upcoming season will be available on it’s release and will cost 950 V-Bucks, allowing players to earn cosmetic items, V-Bucks and emotes by leveling up. 

On the other hand, you can purchase the Battle Bundle at an extra cost to receive 25 tiers to get ahead of your competition.

Fortnite players demand broken “pay to lose” Baby Yoda back bling is fixed

Fortnite players have discovered a bug that’s rendering their Baby Yoda aka The Child back bling cosmetic useless, as it stops them from being able to aim properly.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale introduced a major crossover when The Mandalorian made his way onto The Island. As well as a skin, a glider, and Beskar armor, there’s also a Baby Yoda back bling for players to unlock.

Claiming the Baby Yoda back bling is no easy feat, as players need to reach Level 100 of their Battle Pass to be able to carry the adorable Grogu on their back. This means plenty of grinding and weekly challenges to earn that all-important XP.

Now that Fortnite Season 5 has been out for a while, players are slowly starting to unlock the Baby Yoda back bling, but many of them are facing disappointment upon learning that their hard-earned reward is broken.

Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling is broken

In a Fortnite subreddit thread which has gained over 10k upvotes, Reddit user SweggyBoi highlighted the issue at hand: When you have Baby Yoda equipped, you can’t see where you’re aiming at all as it blocks more than half of the screen.

The problem seems to occur when the player enters and exits a car, causing Baby Yoda to become static. This is likely because the back bling hovers behind the player, rather than resting directly against their back as capes and backpacks do

You can see the moment where Baby Yoda blocks the player’s screen in Fortnite below. SweggyBoi and a number of other Reddit users have called on Epic to acknowledge and fix the problem.

Of course, an easy fix for this problem would be to simply not use the Baby Yoda back bling. But when most players have spent real money on the Battle Pass and dedicated hours of gameplay to unlocking the cosmetic, their frustration is understandable.

“How the f**k did this pass playtests?” asked one Reddit user, while another added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”

Others highlighted a different problem with Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling: “Because it sticks so far out from your back, when you’re hiding it either clips through the wall or shows around the corner.”

While the recent customizable superhero skin controversy resulted in players accusing Epic of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, the Baby Yoda back bling is being jokingly referred to as “pay to lose” as it’s actually hindering players’ performance.

Hopefully, Epic Games will issue some sort of fix for this problem in the near future.
