Fortnite has an impeccable history of adding elements to its game to fit an event, season or celebration, and one idea would hilariously integrate the spirit of April Fool’s Day into the battle royale.

Fans of the game are still reeling from the wintertime changes that introduced snow to the map on December 6, but with April Fool’s just a few holidays away, one fan went all out in providing Epic Games numerous ways to take part in the festivities.

In a post, Reddit user Natan33988 gave a myriad of concepts that realistically capture the fun and sometimes odd inclusions Fortnite is known to make to its games while being heavily influenced by All Fool’s Day.

Natan was open to the changes being an LTM or a part of the main game but suggests that the event be stretched from a day to instead become April Fool’s Week.

He laid out 10 ideas, ranging from funny in-game pranks to potentially game-breaking changes to weapons or items.

Notable entries is a #2 Choke Royale banner which would be granted to the runner-up of a match, letting them bask in their final flub of a game. Another change would see the infamous Tilted Towers emptied of all its loot, faking out the hordes of people that routinely land there.

One change that would be sure to scar many players during the week would be the random disabling of the Glider Redeploy function, as well as the Finding Rigged Guns that would shoot a comical “Bang” flag from its nozzle at random.

Fans are sure to look forward to whatever Fortnite has in store for the day, but any of these ideas would definitely make the April Fool’s celebration one to remember.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
