Fortnite’s Darkfire Bundle has quickly become one of the most highly anticipated customizable sets, after being first leaked back in September. Now, all of its skins and cosmetics have been unofficially revealed ahead of schedule. 

Epic Games have added a number of incredible outfit sets to their popular battle royale game during the course of 2019, with the latest being The Final Reckoning pack – released just days before the Fortnitemares Halloween event went live. 

However, with the Darkfire Bundle’s release date on the horizon, it was only a matter of time before data miners got their hands-on images and have now released them for fans to check out. 

Fortnite’s Darkfire Bundle release date? 

Epic Games confirmed back on September 5 that the Darkfire Bundle was going to be available in two months time, with it expected to hit the shelves on November 5. 

With the set being made available in the run-up to Christmas, there’s no doubt that many parents will be picking up this set from stores for their children in the holiday season.

Fortnite Darkfire Bundle – What’s included? 

As is the case with all of these packs, Darkfire will include a number of different skins, pickaxes, wraps and more – with a full list included below. 

  • Three Legendary outfits
  • Three Legendary back blings
  • Three Rare dual-wielding pickaxes
  • Three Epic wraps
  • One new emote

Skins and cosmetics

Twitter user @s1l0x has been posting a number of images and videos for quite some time, revealing some of the skins and cosmetics ahead of time. So, let’s take a look at some of them!

Shadow Ark and Shadow Ark Wings cosmetics

Dark Power Chord and Dark Six String Cosmetics

Molten Omen & Molten Battle Shroud Cosmetics

There will be around $80 worth of kit included, but it will be available to pick up in stores for just $30 (£24.99). 

While not every player, or their parents, might think the price for skins and cosmetics in the game are worth it, these packs notoriously give more bang for your buck and this tradition doesn’t end here. 

A Darkfire Bundle icon has been leaked ahead of schedule, showing all of the different components included in the deal. The names for each, however, are still unconfirmed.

The set has been confirmed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch platforms already, with pre-orders available for it on Amazon at the time of writing. We await confirmation that it will also be coming to PC and mobile. 

With so much included and for so much less than what we’re used to seeing from the Fortnite Item Shop, surely it will be somewhere near the top of people’s wish lists come November when it releases. 


Best landing spots in Fortnite Season 5

A brand new Fortnite season is finally here, which means there’s a ton of new places for players to drop to. But what are the best places to land for loot after the new update? Here’s what you need to know in order to get some weapons and items fast during Season 5 Zero Point.

Like most seasons of Fortnite nowadays, Season 5 Zero Point kicked off with another map refresh. Old areas have disappeared and in their wake, new points-of-interest have been added to the game, including a near complete revamp to the center of the map.

Because of these changes, your go-to spot from last season might not as good as others, or worse, it might be gone. Here’s everything you need to know about the best places to drop and get loot fast with the new Season 5 map, in no particular order.

Salty Towers

Epic Games
Tilted Towers makes a return in Season 5 in the form of Salty Towers.

One of Fortnite Season 5’s most notable additions is that of Salty Towers. While it has a new fancy name, at the end of the day, the area is just a new version of Tilted Towers from way back in the day. Because it’s basically just the popular POI with a new paint job, it’s still a haven for both ground loot and chests.

Landing at the main tower is going to be your best bet here, although the other buildings aren’t bad by any stretch of the imagination. Of course, just like the old version, it’s worth pointing out that it’s an incredibly popular spot, moreso now given its proximity to the middle of the map, so be careful when dropping in.

Flush Factory

Epic Games
Flush Factory also makes a return with Season 5, after being absent since the old Chapter 1 map.

Like the previous area, Flush Factory has also returned from the old Fortnite map, but this time it’s gone unnamed. To find it, just look for the group of buildings south of Slurpy Swamp. Again, because it shares the same layout as its previous version, there’s a ton of chests and ground loot found here for you to sink your teeth into.

The best part is that, because it’s unnamed on the map and in such a remote corner, you won’t be running into a lot of other players when landing here. This means that, generally speaking, you can take your time exploring and gearing up. Though, it’s important to be mindful of the circle, as you more than likely won’t be having your endgame there.

Stealthy Stronghold

Epic Games
Stealthy Stronghold is a new area with Season 5 and it has a ton of loot.

Kicking our first “new” area on the list is Stealthy Stronghold. Unlike the previous two entries, this dinosaur/Jurassic Park-inspired POI is pretty big, so there’s a lot of places for loot. The only problem with it is that it can be very congested, resulting in some tight pathways and reduced lines-of-sight.

It’s also worth pointing out that it’s one of the major areas added to the game with the new update, which means a ton of players will be landing there, especially if it’s near the start of the Battle Bus’ flight path. Still, it’s well worth it for all the loot you’ll end up getting.

Dirty Docks

Epic Games
Dirty Docks is still an great place to find loot in Season 5.

This area is nothing new, but it’s still worth pointing out because of the high amount of loot that spawns here. You should have no problem finding a quick assault rifle or a shotgun with ease, due to how many buildings there are.

The best part is that, because everyone will be landing at the new areas, you more than likely won’t have to worry about a huge influx of players landing at the area, meaning that you’ll have more time to find stuff. Don’t think you’re completely out of the clear, as there will still be people dropping, but it will certainly be less so than before.

Zero Point

Epic Games
The center of the map is a solid place to find loot, among other items.

Like Flush Factory, this isn’t a named point on the map right now. That being said, there’s really nothing else to call the dead center of the map. In terms of loot, there’s a pretty notable amount here. It is worth noting that you’re going to have to be careful: it’s a brand new, large center of the map. This means it’s going to be insanely popular and you WILL run into other players, without a doubt.

The good thing, however, is that there’s a ton to do here outside of grabbing weapons. You’ll also be able to use quicksand to quickly move around the area with ease and you’ll also be able to pick up special crystals that allow you to teleport around the area.

Of course, these aren’t the only good areas in the game. If you find yourself having luck with other spots then those may be perfect for you. That being said, these five have a good, consistent amount of loot for fans to get.
