An all-new Fortnite leak has revealed that an anti-Choppa rocket launcher is in the works – and it might be pretty deadly. 

When the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 came to an end, fans of Epic Games’ battle royale finally got what they’d been looking for – a raft of brand new content. That came in the form of a storyline for the season, NPC characters, and new locations – as well as a few new weapons to spice up the loot pool.

As Chapter 2, Season 2 has progressed, there have been a handful of new weapons and deadly items added to the battle royale, with leakers also uncovering plenty of others that could soon be added to the mix as well.

Henchmen were added as new content for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2.

Popular Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey was able to uncover another new weapon that is currently only known by its codename: MistyBop.

According to the leaker’s information, this new weapon would be a Rocket Launcher with a special ability that would allow players to use it to lock on to a Choppa pretty quickly and bring it down with a few blasts.

Though there is no image or animation of the new weapon in action, there are two sound files related to the weapon that the leaker uncovered – with one seemingly being the warning a Choppa pilot would have when they come into the weapon’s crosshairs. 

Some Fortnite fans might question the need for a weapon that can quickly dispose of the Choppa – seeing as the aerial vehicle is pretty harmless compared to others. Yet, plenty will no doubt welcome it seeing as it’s inclusion would no doubt help keep the game fresh.

However, it’s difficult to say as to when players might be able to wield one in-game, especially as there were five other weapons leaked on April 8. We’ll just have to wait and see as to what Epic does.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
