With the new update for Fortnite, v6.02, going live on Wednesday, October 10, data miners have been busy delving into the game files to find leaks for upcoming content.
One of the common leaks is the new weekly loading screens, which are of significance in Fortnite for a couple of reasons.
Starting with the ‘Blockbuster’ challenges in Season 4, and followed by the ‘Road Trip’ challenges in Season 5, these loading screens provide clues to valuable items, hidden on the map.
For Season 6, it is the new ‘Hunting Party’ challenges, and these loading screens will be necessary to find a hidden battle pass star on the map each week.
The screens will only be unlocked in game once you have completed all the weekly challenges in that particular week. You can see the leaked challenges for Week 3 of Season 6 here.
Once you have completed these challenges you will unlock the loading screen for week 3, which thanks to leaker @TwoEpicBuddies, we know looks like this.
But, that’s not all, as Epic Games has actually added two weeks worth of loading screens to the game files, meaning we can take a look at what is to come in Week 4 too.
Both loading screens feature a Fable skin character, the first as she seems to defeat the level 100 skin ‘Dire’, and fend off a werewolf.
In Week 4’s loading screen, the ‘Dusk’ skin character is preying on Fable, obviously in keeping with the Halloween theme, but we’re not sure yet if it is a clue to anything bigger to come.
