Epic Games could be adding a woman tennis player skin to Fortnite ahead of the Australian Open tournament, if this data mine leak is to believed. 

There are already World Cup and NFL related characters available in the game so far and according to Lucas7yoshi we might be on the brink of seeing a tennis related skin appear in battle royale. 

Images have been leaked of the skin in question, which is called ‘Volley Girl’, and will allegedly come with a Used Racket backbling to go with it. 

Epic GamesEpic Games has a history of adding sports skins, having teamed up with the NFL in November of last year to bring American Football skins to Fortnite.

Lucas7yoshi shared the “upcoming encrypted skin” with their followers on Twitter, tweeting photos and sharing videos of the potential new tennis players character. 

Like many of these datamine leaks, it’s unknown if the content revealed here will be added to the game or not until the developer gives fans some official confirmation.

While there is no mention of a male character as of yet, judging by previous sports-related skins that Epic has added to Battle Royale in the past, there is a chance that we could see that happen in the future.

How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
