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).


Where to find Jurassic World easter eggs in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 has plenty of secrets and some are hidden in plain sight, and that includes a few potential nods to Jurassic World at Stealthy Stronghold. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded over the last three years, crossover events have become commonplace. Typically, these crossovers can be something as small as a skin, while others are bigger, bringing a raft of skins, new locations, and even taking up the whole theme of the season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, we’ve already got two crossovers in the form of The Mandalorian and Kratos from God of War – with new skins for both, as well as Mando being part of the season’s boss fights. 

Though, when it comes to Jurassic Park – well, Jurassic World – that crossover seems to be a little more subtle and if you’re not searching it out, you might just miss a small few nods.

Stealthy Stronghold looks like a Jurassic World enclosure from the outside, but secrets hide inside.

It’s not exactly an official crossover, yet, but the Stealthy Stronghold location very much resembles the enclosure in which the vicious Indominus Rex is created and held. 

But, if you go inside and have a look around, you might see more subtle nods. These include small cages dotted around the POI – again, resembling parts of Jurassic Park where dinosaurs are released into a certain area. 

The cages in Fortnite are open, and don’t have any claw marks or anything like that, but any Jurassic World fan will immediately recognize them. It’s hard not to, given there are two or three dotted around the POI.

Additionally, there is also another nod to Jurassic Park in this season. If you get a kill in Stealthy Stronghold while wearing one of the Dino Guard skins, you’ll get a legacy achievement titled Clever Girl – a tip of the hat to one of the iconic lines from the 1993 movie. 

These small nods could, simply, be Epic Games paying tribute to the franchise, as nothing has yet been leaked to suggest a bigger crossover. Though, we’ll be sure to keep a close eye on things moving forward.
