UPDATE 

After about 10 hours, the iceberg on an island south of Happy Hamlet has finally broken! The reveal was a bit anticlimactic, however, as it simply revealed a bunker door identical to the one that’s been in Wailing Woods for quite some time.


The release of Fortnite’s V7.20 update has seen the massive iceberg in the corner of the map begin to melt.

The 7.20 update brought some massive changes to the game, including the new Scoped Revolver and the reintroduction of Glider Redeploy as an item.

One change that has slipped under the radar comes in the map’s south-west corner, where the large iceberg that floats of the side of the main island has started to thaw.

First noticed by Fortnite leaker lucas7yoshi, the large boulder of ice that sits on the island just below Happy Hamlet has started to melt, as players can see that it now has a health bar, which is slowly decreasing with every passing second.

Players cannot deal any damage to the iceberg to speed up the process, seemingly confirming that it will be part of an event, as the boulder will melt at the exact same time in every match, rather than at different points depending on whether players are destroying it.

The ice appears to be damaged every second, but with the boulder having around five billion health points, it will take some time before the object is completely melted.

Players have previously found a hidden bunker underneath the ice boulder, so it’s likely players will be able to get inside the structure once the iceberg melts.

Eagle-eyed Fortnite fans have also discovered a massive floating orb in the sky above Polar Peak, which turns players screen white with frost when players get too close it.

There has also been a number of leaks from the game files following the V7.20 update, including new skins and cosmetics, a mysterious music video, and even a new ‘medieval sword’ weapon.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
