A handful of major Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 leaks have surfaced – with some apparent intel about the fresh theme, map changes, strange new vehicles, and even a whole host of classic skins. 

With Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 drawing ever so slightly to its conclusion, fans have been gearing up and speculating about what is coming in season three. As usual, posters have popped up around the map – providing some clues and teasers about the direction of the new season.


However, if you’re not one for linking all the clues together and doing the hard yards to get an answer, Fortnite YouTuber Tabor Hill apparently has the inside scoop for a source – revealing how the map is going to shake up.

The Top Secret theme of Fortnite Season 2 is making way for something new.

Now, according to the YouTuber’s source, the theme for season three is all about water – with some parts of the map going underwater, though The Agency looks set to stay. While he didn’t offer any in-depth map changes, Tabor did note that a ridable Shark will apparently be a new vehicle to that you can still get around the map.


Aside from that, but sticking with the water theme, the YouTuber added that instead of Marvel making a return in the battle pass, DC Comics will take over and add Aquaman as the secret skin. 

This would likely take the place of Deadpool and his challenges, meaning you’d be tasked with different quests each week in order to get some Aquaman cosmetics.

Tabor also added that there would be a handful of reworked skins coming in season three, including a female variant of the original Black Knight skin. There would also be new spins on Dark Vanguard and Teknique.


Outside of cosmetics, the YouTuber’s source also claimed that environmental damage would be added in the form of fire. While there isn’t too much information on this, fans have speculated that you might be able to start a fire at the bottom of a building and watch it burn like Minecraft’s fire spread.

Now, while the YouTuber’s source has been pretty reliable in the past, everything he claims is worth taking with a pinch of salt until the changes are actually made in-game.

Fortnite Season 3 is expected to kick off around Thursday, June 4, so we’ve got a little bit of a waiting game just yet.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.
