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.


Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
