The Fortnite v8.30 patch released on April 10, and it’s brought tons of new data for miners to decrypt – which may have uncovered future loading screens for the game.

While the latest update to the game has been met with mixed reactions, there’s still loads of content to go through for this week’s download that’s more than 6BG for PC players.

Epic Games is pressing on with the intricate Discovery Challenges, and known Fortnite leaker ‘FNBRHQ’ is already on the trail for the latest loading screens that could play a part in finding hidden objects in the game.

Epic GamesImages for previous weeks have led players to troves on secret unlockables.

Discovery Challenges

As players should know, Discovery Challenges are additional to the weekly challenges and unlock prestigious rewards.

To get those rewards players will have to unlock loading screens for that week, which has enough information for players to figure out where they can acquire that week’s Battle Star or Banner.

With the fresh batch of leaks, FNBRHQ gave players a look into what the new screens could look like in the upcoming weeks.

Week 7 Loading Screen

The leaked loading screen shows the Luxe character propelling down into a cave filled with gold along a treasure chest.

The Legendary Tier 100 skin is prominently featured in the Week 7 loading screen, probably to give players more of an incentive to grind for the highly coveted design.

The loading screen for the seventh week of Season 8 is also the poster image for the Buccaneer Bounty’s challenges that certainly get a lot of attention from Fortnite completionists. 

Week 8 Loading Screen

Although the loading screen for Week 8 has yet to be revealed, FNBRHQ was able to scrounge up a file with the name “Strength of Will.”

How that ties into the that week’s challenges remains to be seen. If the name is any indication, Fortnite players might have their hands full with completing the objectives.

This post will update when the Week 8 loading screen comes out, and keep a close eye on Dexerto for more leaks to come.

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.
