The Fortnite’s v8.30 patch introduced the brand new Reboot Van, which allows players to bring back fallen teammates using tokens that are dropped when they are eliminated, alongside a number of technical improvements that should help the game run smoother.

While many are excited about what Epic Games have officially released, Fortnite data miners have been hard at work poring over the update in search of leaked events, items or cosmetics that could be added to the game in the future.

The Fortnite v8.30 update introduced the Reboot Van to the game.

The cosmetics found in the v8.30 patch include specific items for both Battle Royale and Save The World, meaning everyone who plays the hugely popular game will receive new cosmetics that they can purchase in the near future.

This week’s cosmetic items continue the theme of pirates and the jungle, as there is a brand new pickaxe in the form of a palm tree, much like those found at the pirate outpost Lazy Lagoon in the north of the map.

While these items have been added to the game in the v8.30 files, there is no guarantee that Epic Games will ever use them, as the developers have previously added items and cosmetics to the Fortnite files that have never seen the light of day.

For those that do become available, there is also no official timeline for their release, as Epic Games spread out cosmetics through days and even weeks in an attempt to give players a myriad of options to choose from.

You can view all the leaked cosmetic items found in the Fortnite v8.30 files below. All leaks are courtesy of @HYPEX, @xkleinmikex, and @PXLPAT_YT.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
