A fresh Fortnite leak claims even more Marvel superhero abilities will be added throughout Season 4, including the return of Iron Man’s Repulsors, a new high-flying thunderous smash for Thor, and Black Panther’s Vibranium armor.

At the start of Fortnite Season 4, a handful of Marvel’s most iconic superheroes and villains descended on the battle royale. The crossover August 27 update added all-new cosmetics, weapons, and a host of Marvel points of interest.

The Marvel season has already brought in Doctor Doom from the Fantastic Four franchise, and the ability to wield his Mystical Bomb and Arcane Gauntlets in place of their usual weapons. Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy has his own abilities too.

A whole new bundle of Marvel characters, and their superhero abilities, will soon join the Season 4 party too ⁠— including Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, and more.

The original leaked set also had two more hero abilities for a character codenamed “Cherry,” marked “FireBall” and “FireJump.” This will likely be Inhuman hero Crystal, full name Crystalia Amaquelin, who wields fire when in battle.

Other suggestions have included Captain Marvel, who also starts with “C” and Fantastic Four hot-head the Human Torch. The flaming hero could land in Fortnite to challenge his arch-rival Doctor Doom, who is already in the game.

Finally, BoyFromHel1 revealed there was one last ability without an associated superhero: a simple “Punch,” from codename “Vertigo.” This could be Spider-Man, who is rumored to be on his way, but he’d be missing his web-slinging.

Spider-Man may well be the next Marvel hero to join the Fortnite roster.

Whoever it could be, we’ll just have to wait and see what Epic has planned. Fortnite has had plenty of unused content leaked in the past, so it’s best to take all things with a pinch of salt until you see it in-game.

The next POI to be added to Fortnite could also be Ant-Man’s shrinking manor, or a Wakandan monument for Black Panther, which has been found in the Fortnite files.

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.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
