A new Fortnite leak has revealed the best look at Season 10’s mysterious robot that players might soon be facing in the battle royale.

Epic Games has been on a tear with the incredible additions to Fortnite lately, whether it’s new skins in time for the World Cup or their library of cosmetics, players have tons to grind for in Fortnite.

Even though players were just gifted an epic mech vs monster battle in Season 9, it doesn’t look like the robots are going to be leaving soon with the emergence of a new loading screen depicting a humanoid bot ready for battle.

Epic GamesSeason X holds a lot of mystery, but the new Fortnite leak has shed some light to one of them.

A July 31 leak by Brondon ‘Vain’ shows Rust Lord seemingly being hunted by a mechanized foe who has various weapons primed and ready to be used against the Fortnite character.

Fortnite fanatics will instantly recognize the bot from its silhouette that the official Fortnite Twitter account released on July 29, which signaled the inevitable appearance of the mechanical fiend.

While the surprise was supposed to be either revealed or detailed on August 1, it seems like players don’t need to wait that long anymore to get their first glimpse at the full bodied mech with guns for fists.

At the time of writing it’s still unknown when Season X will be launching, but it looks like players will have a fearsome new gameplay mechanic to fight when it does.

Another Fortnite appearance by The Visitor?

Moreover, it’s hard to tell who it is but the mech is indeed being piloted by someone or something. Previous theories pointed to a return from The Visitor to the battle royale island.

Players had found similarities between the logo on the left side of the Season X teaser and that of The Visitor’s Season 4 design featuring the insignia on its arm.

Again, the leaked loading screen is fuzzy, but if it is The Visitor then it looks like the Epic Games devs have given them an upgrade for their possible Season 10 appearance.

The Fortnite fan base might have a lot more to go off of when the teaser officially drops, but Season 10 is already shaping up to be one of the most anticipated chapters in the game so far.

The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss what these new teasers might mean for the February Fortnite Crew release.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak
Epic Games
Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
