Data miners have discovered and released leaks of new emotes coming to Fortnite Battle Royale as part of the first Season 5 update.

Quickly after the much anticipated release of the v5.0 update marking the beginning of Season 5, data miners were quick at work digging through the game files to uncover upcoming content set to release.

The best known and reliable data mining duo ‘TwoEpicBuddies’ have found ten new emotes in total, and while the full animations are not yet available the names and still previews are visible.

Other details such as rarities and the cost of precious V-bucks for these new emotes are not yet known, but fans shouldn’t have to wait long before these are available in the item shop.

The prices for emotes in Fortnite can range from 200 V-Bucks for the Uncommon variety to 800 V-Bucks for the Epic rarity.

TwoEpicBuddies also earlier leaked a slew of new skins and cosmetic items (gliders, back bling, pickaxes etc.), along with the images of new outfits revealed by Epic Games officially.

Leaks also showed that the Season 5 battle pass will feature phases of progression again, with an elusive secret skin presumably unlocked at the highest tier.

Full patch notes released by Epic also detail major changes to the map, as well as adding the four player ‘squad’ vehicle, the All Terrain Kart (ATK).


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.
