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.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
