Fortnite game files hinting at a new plane vehicle were found in November, but since then nothing has come of them – until the announcement of the new Fortnite Creative mode, which has confirmed a plane is coming soon.

Following the v6.22 update for Fortnite Battle Royale, sound files in a vehicle folder with names such as ‘Overhead distant’ and ‘Travel Cue’ hinted that it would be a plane.

FNBRLeaks later shared the audio files on Twitter, confirming that they belonged to an aerial vehicle of some kind, named ‘Bumble’.

Since then, there has been little indication of the airplane vehicle being added to Fortnite Battle Royale – but it might not be coming at all, instead being added to the new Creative mode.

On December 5, Epic Games allowed creators to upload videos showing off Fortnite Creative, and in one of the scenes showing the ‘devices’ menu – a plane was clearly visible.

The creators were meant to have the devices menu blurred to prevent new items being shown, but one video hadn’t done this, exposing the new plane vehicle.

Update: The airplane vehicle has been further confirmed in the third teaser for Season 7, as a plane can clearly be seen in the background of the image.

The third Season 7 teaser includes a small plane in the background.

We won’t know for certain if the vehicle is coming to the battle royale mode as well until Season 7 starts on December 6.

However, considering that players already have the ability to make their character fly in Creative mode, it seems unlikely that the addition of an airplane would be limited to Creative only.

Season 7 is expected to go live at 09:00 GMT (04:00 EST, 01:00 PST, 20:00 AEDT, 10:00 CET) – so players will get access to the plane and all the other new additions then.

You can watch the video from French YouTuber Solary which leaked the plane in Creative mode below.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
