Leaks suggest that plenty of new customizable cosmetic items could be added to Fortnite very soon, including hats, battle bus skins, and a new calling card item.

Epic Games have been criticized heavily in recent weeks following the release of the v8.20 patch which removed the siphon mechanic loved by many as well as banning stretched resolution which caused outrage in the competitive community.

However, a recent change may have gone under the radar, with plenty of in-game skins now able to be customized. Players who own skins such as Elite Agent, Scarlet Defender and Whiteout can now change the style of their item on the battlefield.

What new cosmetic items will be added to Fortnite?

Epic Games confirmed that more skins will be made customizable in the future, and recent leaks may have uncovered exactly what players will be able to change in their lockers.

Found by @HYPEX on Twitter, players will be able to add a skin to the battle bus as well as changing the hat of their character.

Code for a calling card was also discovered suggesting that Fortnite may be taking inspiration from Call of Duty and adding cards that can be obtained by completing challenges.

Is a new Victory Royale screen coming to Fortnite?

The leak also found that players will be able to customize their victory royale pose and taunt – suggesting a brand-new loading screen may be added after securing a win.

A concept loading screen was created back during Season 3 which was well received on Reddit – the idea may be finally be implemented into the actual game to showcase the statistics of the winning players.

Indeed, code for hats and the battle bus was actually discovered during the first Fortnite birthday celebration and still haven’t been added so users might have to wait a little longer for the extra customization options.

Nevertheless, players love being able to modify their character to suit their style and the change would most definitely be praised by the community.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
