After many Fortnite players were shocked to find the 14 Days of Fortnite event had ended earlier than expected, Epic Games has now announced compensation for those who missed out on the final reward. 

Each day of the 14 Days of Fortnite holiday event brought new challenges and rewards for players to obtain, with the final one being the Equalizer Glider as a way to ring in  the new year. 

Early on in the event, it was announced that the challenges would be available until January 3 or 4 to give players some extra time to complete the challenges. 

Upon logging in on January 2, however, players quickly noticed that the challenges were all gone, meaning that many missed out on the final reward. 

To compensate for this oversight, Epic Games has announced that anyone who completed at least one challenge during the event will be granted the Equalizer Glider.

There’s no official date as to when players will receive the items, with Epic Games simply announcing that they would come in the “near future.” 

Regardless of when players finally receive the items, they will surely be happy to pick up one of the most sought after items of the entire event. 

In the meantime, players can also look forward to the recently announced v7.10 content update #3 that’s set to go live on January 8. 

While there’s no official confirmation on what we’ll see in the update, it’s expected that we’ll see the delayed Driftboard or leaked Machine Pistol once it finally goes live.

The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss what these new teasers might mean for the February Fortnite Crew release.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak

Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
