14 Days of Summer is well underway in Fortnite Battle Royale with every day bringing new challenges and surprises, so let’s take a look at which unvaulted weapon you can play with today. 

The event first kicked off on June 25 alongside the v9.30 content update, which unvaulted three of the most popular weapons the battle royale game has to offer – the Pump Shotgun, Suppressed SMG, and the Revolver. 

However, the official patch notes revealed that there would be even more weapons and items escaping the vault while the Epic Games team take a summer break, with a different one being made available each day. 

So, let’s take a look at what’s available today…

Epic GamesThere’s 14 Days of Summer in Fortnite, with 14 vaulted weapons and items making their return!

Today’s available weapon is the Suppressed Assault RifleFans were devastated when this stealthy weapon entered the vault, but it’s finally back. If you want to play with it, now is your chance. 

The weapon can be found for the entire day of July 8 as part of the 14 Days of Summer event. It’s the 11th weapon to have made its return so far, with the LMG, Quad Launcher, Burst Assault Rifle, and many more coming back for short stints since it started on June 25.

The 14 Days of Summer event is set to come to a close on July 9 and hopefully by that time everyone will have been able to play with every weapon, or item, they have missed since being removed from the game. 

Plus, they also have the opportunity to dive into some of the challenges that are being set live each day, too, with players having already been asked to bounce a giant beach ball in different matches and find Fortnite’s six beach parties.

With the highly controversial Infinity Blade still locked away in the vault, there’s a chance that the sword – and other dangerous things – will be available to find in Fortnite sometime soon.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
