Epic Games released a number of incredible skins and styles to kick off Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1, but even more have been leaked ahead of schedule following the v11.1 patch. 

The game’s latest major update, which went live on October 22, was never really expected to change a lot in terms of the Battle Royale mode, but instead introduced a number of fixes and content for Save the World.

However, just like many other patches in the past, Epic have added some new content to the game’s files and it hasn’t taken long for data miners to get their hands on them. Judging by their aesthetics, we wouldn’t be surprised to see many of them added for Halloween. 

Epic GamesMore skins are coming soon.

Fortnite leakers HYPEX, ShiinaBR, xkleinmikex and PXLPAT were active, as ever, once the patch was set live and during the downtime they discovered evidence to suggest that both Skull Trooper and Ranger are going to get new styles in the near future.

That’s not all, though, as there are a number of – what appear to be – Halloween skins and styles also included in the leaks. So, let’s check them out.

As you can probably tell, there was certainly a lot more to unpack – in terms of leaks – from the v11.1 patch than many might have expected, especially considering how many changes were implemented at the start of the new season just a week previous.

However, with the Halloween event very much on the horizon in Fortnite, we’ll have to see what Chapter 2 has in store for us during its spooky themed weekend. 

Judging by these leaks skins and cosmetics, it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.
