Fortnite Season 3 leak reveals new details about cars: speeds & features

More leaks are emerging that suggest Fortnite will soon deliver on its promise of bringing in cars to the game while also providing more details of their capabilities, speed, health, and more.

People have been waiting for cars to come to the battle royale ever since the turn of the Fortnite story a couple of seasons ago. While it looked promising, the devs rained on players’ parades by flooding the map for their last couple of events.

This provided an obvious obstacle for the land-based automobiles, and it conjured up the question of when Fortnite would have enough land to allow for the four-wheeled vehicles.

Although it remains to be seen when the vehicles will be added, new leaks from prominent dataminer ‘VastBlast’ are providing nitty-gritty information and stats for the cars once they are added to the island.

Leaks have revealed more about how Fortnite’s cars will work.

The files after the v13.30 patch contain how cars will be able to gain metal by hitting objects, similar to how Brutes did in seasons past. Meanwhile, there’s evidence of Tire and Brake Skids, that require a minimum speed of 20 and 10, respectively.

Speaking of how fast they can go, VastBlast saw that the max speed for the vehicles will be between 28-45, which they think will depend on the type of car you have.

That should be a good speed for people to skip around the map or get a safe rotation, especially considering that they’ll have 500 health, according to the leaked info.

For those looking to deal some pain to buildings and players, an exploding car will hit structures for 800 damage and 200 damage to a player at a close distance or 50 from long range.

“Gas Pumps and/or the Petrol Jerrycans” will let players keep their cars’ fuel tank at capacity in case they’re running low, which means we could see map chances and new items added along with the vehicles.

There’s a lot more to find out about how cars will operate in Fortnite’s chaotic island, but if the timing is anything to consider, we could have more information as Season 3 progresses to its next big update.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
