The two factions in Fortnite, Ghost and Shadow, are set to go head-to-head in an upcoming LTM in Season 2, according to leaks revealing details of the ‘Faction Wars’ event.

Epic has a history of pitting two sides against each other in Fortnite, such as the classic Food Fight LTM which put two rival restaurants, Durr Burger and Pizza Pit, in a fight to the end.

Ghost and Shadow are the two mysterious factions in Fortnite’s second season of Chapter 2, all part of the ‘top secret’ agents theme, and they too are getting their own special event, revealed by this leak.

Team Ghost and Shadow are rival factions in Fortnite Season 2.

The event was first leaked by reliable data miner FireMonkey, who has uncovered clues about what it will include thanks to some game files in Fortnite.

The description of the event reads: “Team Ghost or Team Shadow? Pick your team from the PC and fight to upgrade your Faction intel level! This Faction v Faction event isn’t your ordinary event, as you can switch factions any time you want!”

FireMonkey continues: “The higher your faction level, the higher your Reward for the event. You’ll be able to see your Faction Tier & Rewards from the computer, as well as switch what faction you’re on.”

When is the Faction Wars LTM event?

Despite finding these game files, the leaker clarifies that the event is not ready and complete as of the v12.00 update. That means the developers at Epic Games are likely still working on the final touches before it is launched.

We know it will be released at some point during Season 2, but when exactly remains unclear. We may have a better indication after the next update, when more files may be added for leakers to uncover.

As with all leaked game files, everything is subject to change, as the leaker themselves states. It’s also unknown what rewards will be included, but we do know that the rewards will be improved depending on your faction level.

Stay tuned for more information on the leaked Faction Wars event to come. In the meantime, make sure you’re completing all the weekly challenges for the Deadpool skin in Season 2 before it’s too late.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
