Fortnite Battle Royale’s Christmas event is on the horizon and a whole host of new skins, as well as cosmetics, have been leaked for fans to take a look at.

Data miners have already uncovered a number of changes to the Fortnite Chapter 2 map for the holiday season, including a first look at what the map will look like completely covered in snow, although it appears they were just scratching the surface with that reveal.

A flood of fresh leaks have been revealed on the back of the v11.30 patch, which was rolled out on December 12. Finally, a number of Christmas themed skins have been discovered in the game’s files – following on from Globe Shaker, which was discovered in the last patch.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at all of the leaked content.


Epic GamesFortnite’s Globe Shaker skin was the first to be leaked following the v11.20 update.

Serial Fortnite leakers HYPEX, xKleinMikex and Lucas7yoshi have been posting a number of new skins to their Twitter accounts, giving players an idea of what to expect from the Fortnite Item Shop’s newest additions in the coming weeks.

The selection is broad but there are some standout leaks from this update, with a new ice-themed Cattus monster outfit and a brand new Fish Stick character as well.

The full list of leaked skins and styles can be found below.

It goes without saying that many of these leaked skins are like nothing we’ve seen before in the battle royale game, with some interesting spins on previously added outfits as well.

That’s not all, though, as there’s a boatload of cosmetics to look at as well.

Whether you’re looking for new skins, skin styles, weapon wraps, or back blings, it looks like Epic Games have all bases covered for the festive season.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
