Following the first Fortnite patch in over a month, a brand-new LTM has been leaked and for the first time ever, it’s looking like Search and Destroy will be making its way to the battle royale title.

Fortnite fans were extremely excited when the v11.40 update hit, but some even bigger news came out of what the dataminers were able to find in the files.

Lucas7yoshi discovered a new LTM on the horizon, called Search and Destroy, and it even comes with its own set of challenges for players to complete.

Outside of these challenges, not a whole lot has been revealed about what this will entail, except that it’ll be an LTM in Creative Mode.

Traditionally, Search and Destroy modes in other games have meant players have just one life and they have to either eliminate the opposing team or detonate a bomb, while the other team is tasked with defending.

Fortnite doesn’t have a set assortment of weapons players start out with, but thanks to the magic of Creative Mode, things like this can be made possible.

Search and Destroy has been a staple of Call of Duty and now it looks like it’s coming to Fortnite.

We don’t know exactly what format Search will take in Fortnite, but we’ll certainly learn more about that once it’s closer to arrival.

It’s important to note that this information remains a leak for the time being, so take it with a pinch of salt until we get official word from Epic themselves.

If these challenges are real, then there will be a lot of experience up for grabs for players to level up their Battle Pass. A spray and a couple of cosmetics are also available, so there’s no reason to avoid them.

Search and Destroy is supposedly coming to Fortnite, but what else?

None of the challenges make it sound like you’ll have to be a star player, so they should be easy enough to complete as long as you put the time in.

Outside of this game mode, there’s not a whole lot that came out of this patch if you’re a fan of things other than cosmetics.

Perhaps we will get a bit more in the next update, but we no longer have a specific timetable to expect that, especially since this latest one took over a month to arrive.

Now that we’re out of the holiday season, perhaps we Epic will get back on track with the weekly updates.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
