While Fortnite Battle Royale fans are in store for all new icy locations, weapon skins and a fighter jet in Season 7, they will lose six of the game’s previously active items. 

The new Fortnite update 7.0 is now live and it’s looking very festive, with snow falling on different parts of the map and the introduction of new locations such as Frosty Flights, Happy Hamlet and Polar Peak. 

Players will be able to slip and slide in icy areas of the map, but they won’t be trapped by Chillers any longer. This previous common item has been removed by Epic Games, for this season at least.

The patch also includes some added optimizations for when players are building structures, however one thing that you won’t be able to build anymore in the Port-a-Fort as it’s also been vaulted by Epic Games.

The other four items which have been vaulted by Season 7 are Shadow Stones, Clinger, Shockwave Grenade and the Double Barrel Shotgun. 

A statement in the patch notes said: “Each new season gives us an opportunity to evaluate the current item rotation. 

“Our goal is to have a reasonable number of items to learn, while avoiding duplicates or overlapping functionality.”

Don’t be too downbeat because of the loss of these items, though, as a whole host of new features have been brought into the game – such as Wraps. 

You will be also able to zipline around Expedition Outposts and Iceberg, while shooting or using items at the same time. The same goes for Balloons too, which have been updated to allow aiming, shooting and the use of items. 

The minimap has been modified, new points of interest have been added with Season 7 Fortnite and, of course, let’s not forget about that Fortnite X-4 Stormwing fighter jet – giving players plenty of new content to explore in this new update.


Fortnite Halo Master Chief skin leaked and coming soon

New leaks suggest that Halo’s iconic Master Chief character might be coming to Fortnite, as the collaborations keep coming in to Epic Games’ hit battle royale title.

In recent Fortnite seasons, we’ve already seen Marvel characters make their way into the game and, for Season 5, a collaboration with The Mandalorian brings new cosmetics and challenges to the game.

For the strong legion of fans of the Halo series though, whether they still play it regularly or not, the idea of playing as Master Chief in Fortnite will be a hugely exciting one.

Here’s what we know about Master Chief in Fortnite so far.

Halo Infinite is due to release soon, making it the perfect time for a Fortnite collab.

Is Master Chief coming to Fortnite?

While there has been no official confirmation or even a hint from Fortnite or Halo devs Bungie, the leaks are starting to grace the internet, bringing the character that the entire Halo story is based around to the daunting battle royale island.

After an initial tweet from FNBRLeaks suggested that there would be a collaboration in the future — including a Red vs Blue LTM (Red and Blue are the two teams in Halo) as well as cosmetics — it was backed up with screenshots of the rumored cosmetics.

As you can see in the tweet below, there is allegedly a Master Chief outfit coming to the game, as well as a Lil’ Warthog Emote and a UNSC Pelican Glider arriving, both from the Halo series.

When is Master Chief coming to Fortnite?

As for when the leaked Master Chief is due to arrive, we don’t have much information yet. On December 2, leaks revealed that God of War’s Kratos will be arriving in Fortnite during Season 5.

Some fans have theorized that Kratos could be arriving in Season 5 for PlayStation fans (as God of War is a PlayStation exclusive) whereas Master Chief could be the Xbox alternative, with Halo being Xbox-exclusive.

If they do come at or around the same time, Season 5 is due to end on March 16, so expect to see these arrive by then if they’re both expected this season.

As always, take these leaks with a pinch of salt — while they come from reliable sources, we never the full details on these until Epic Games confirm them, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
