Fortnite looks to be on track for another visit from the undead in the upcoming Ice Storm event as a new leak has emerged that contains audio files and images related to the Ice King’s zombie army.

Fortnite’s winter event started innocent enough as it covered a portion of the map in a blanket of snow, but more sinister events loom on the horizon as the Ice King’s attack on the landscape evolves.

Fortnite leak source FortTory has uncovered files in the game that contain eerily familiar sounds for spawns with an icy twist, and a leaked image from Reddit user igootin all but seals the impending zombie attack.

The Reddit image shows a ghastly humanoid figure with glowing veins across its body that pierces through its eyes and mouth like the fiends in the Fortnitemare event from October 2018.

Just like in that event, the sounds from the explosive zombie spawns have been reintroduced to the game, this time with a crackling frozen element to the effect.

The files themselves also indicate a ghoulish foe is on the horizon, as files repeatedly include the name Deimos that relates to the Greek diety of the same name that means ‘dread.’

Although an impending freeze attack is coming to the battle royale, FortTory isn’t sure if the zombies are coming to the king of the hill mode. However the polished nature of the leaked sights and sounds almost assuredly point to their inclusion.

More will be known as the event goes on, which might have to do something with the mysterious orb in Fortnite’s sky.


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.
