The Fortnite community has been given a task by the Autumn Queen in hopes of unlocking a new animated Wrap but some players are starting to think that goal is unreachable.

There’s an animated weapon Wrap called Falling Leaf and it’s an excellent way to get into the fall spirit. Players have until December 1 to earn enough points as a community to unlock this wrap for everyone.

Epic Games set the goal at 2,500,000,000 which seems like an incredibly high number, but when you think about the number of Fortnite players around the world, it doesn’t seem as bad.

However, some are beginning to question if the quest is even possible as with just over two days to go, the community hasn’t even cracked the halfway point.

This doesn’t mean it’s impossible, but it goes to show that players may have underestimated the amount of time it takes to unlock this Wrap.

Players have taken their doubts to Reddit where many other players chimed in and shared similar doubts.

Reddit user Cactus1872 thought that the low total was due to the Thanksgiving holiday and players would be able to get back on track, but not everyone shared the same sentiment.

Some players questioned the timing of this quest, as it comes shortly after news the inaugural season of Chapter 2 would be extended until February. Many players have already completed every tier of their Battle Pass so perhaps this a ploy by Epic to get players to keep playing.

Is it even possible that we can earn this wrap? 2 days seems like a very short time to get 2.5 BILLION points, while we are sitting at less than a fifth of the way there. Hopefully this is because of Thanksgiving and now people will play more. Definitely going to be tough because people are working. from FortNiteBR

As it stands right now, the way to earn points revolves around healing teammates, but players aren’t rewarded with a whole lot of points for doing so, with the most points being rewarded for just playing with a friend.

There’s still a lot of time for players to get this Wrap unlocked so it’s definitely too early to give up all hope now, even if some already have. Even if the goal isn’t reached, it’s hard to imagine a world where Epic doesn’t extend the duration so everyone is able to get it.

Epic made this competition with the intention of giving away a free Wrap, so it stands to reason they might offer a boost. It might be time to worry when the contest starts winding down and players are nowhere near the goal.

There’s not actually a way to keep track of the quest in-game, so you’ll have to do so on a special website made just for it. You still have plenty of time to earn points so do your part for the community!


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
