Fortnite has been teasing the arrival of a Predator skin throughout Season 5, so we’re looking into all the leaks and rumors about when the character will arrive on The Island.

Season 5 of Fortnite has introduced a number of exciting crossover skins to tie in with its ‘bounty hunter’ theme, including The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, and Halo’s Master Chief. So what’s next? Well, all signs are pointing to Predator.

The terrifying character first appeared in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hit 1987 movie Predator and went on to spawn a massive franchise of sequels and spin-offs. He’s easily one of the most recognizable characters in movie history.

It now seems inevitable that Predator will be landing in Fortnite before Season 5 is over, and fans are pretty hyped for his arrival. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming skin so far.

When is Predator coming to Fortnite?

There have been plenty of hints about Predator’s arrival already given throughout Season 5, including the alien warrior’s logo appearing on a door, a helicopter crash site, and a truck being used as a generator like in the movie.

The recent Fortnite v15.20 update introduced Predator’s ship to the jungle-inspired point of interest Stealthy Stronghold, suggesting the hunter has already landed on The Island and is waiting to make his grand entrance.

According to the Mystery Rewards section of the Battle Pass screen, the challenges that need to be completed to unlock the Predator skin will launch on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.

The Predator skin is also expected to be an NPC on the map. He’ll serve a similar purpose as The Mandalorian NPC, acting as an interactive boss that attacks players on sight and defends some very desirable loot.

Following the v15.20 update, players who have purchased the Season 5 Battle Pass will be able to see a new Mystery Rewards section, which is where you can view the challenges that need to be completed to unlock Predator cosmetics.

There are currently three Predator-related rewards on display – a banner icon, an icon, and graffiti – and they will be unlocked as players complete a new series of Jungle Hunter Quests.

Six more Mystery Rewards in the lineup are currently represented by question marks. They’re listed as a loading screen, an outfit (skin), a weapon wrap, a back bling, a built-in emote, and a harvesting tool (pickaxe).

Interestingly, several Fortnite leakers have claimed that the Predator skin will come with two variations: Mask On and Mask Off. If this is true, the skin will no doubt become a favorite among players.

We’ll keep this article updated as soon as details of the Jungle Hunter Quests and how to unlock the Predator skin are revealed, so be sure to check back soon.

Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
