Fortnite v8.10 officially released on Tuesday, March 12, and data miners have already found a new Poison Dart Trap that appears to be coming soon to the popular battle royale title.

The v8.10 update for Fortnite brought a host of new changes such as the brand new Baller vehicle, weapons balancing updates and a massive change to how Vending Machines will work in the game moving forward.

While going through the game’s update files, data miners appear to have gotten their hands on a brand new trap that will likely make an appearance in the game in the near future – the Poison Dart Trap.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite Season 8 Week 3 loading screen shows Sidewinder running away from arrows.

As first reported on ForntiteINTEL, the Poison Dart Trap will has been found in the game’s files, although there is currently no official visual assets for the item as of yet.

Found by data miner FortTory, little is known about the trap, but if Epic Games have added it to the games files, it’s likely that we will see it make an appearance in the popular battle royale title in the near future.

Not much is known about how much damage the item will do, but it’s possible that a Poison Dart will damage players over a period of time, much like how damage is inflicted when players stand in the vicinity of a Stink Bomb.

It appears that Epic Games have already started to hint at the new item, as the loading screen for Week 3 of the Discovery challenges features a Sidewinder skin running through a barrage of arrows.

Some believe that the Poison Dart Trap may be used as part of a new version of the popular Getaway Limited Time Mode, while others theorize that it is simply going to be a new addition to the base battle royale game.

There is no official release date for the Poison Dart Trap, but stay tuned to Dexerto for more information as it becomes available.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
