Data Miners have struck again as a video has surfaced of the newest, unreleased Fortnite emotes that were added in the recent v7.20 patch.

Plenty of new content that was added in the recent patch has also been leaked – including new skins and pickaxes to be purchased from the Fortnite shop. However, the releases of these items is still yet to come so fans can only marvel at them from the recent leaks.

Four new emotes are set to be added with three of them being rare and the other being uncommon. The names of the yet to be released emotes are: Flux, Slick, Whirlwind and IDK.

The ‘Malcore’ skin, which was also a part of this leak, is set to be added to Fortnite.

Flux is a dance which sees the player wave their hands in an up and down motion before swinging left and right. Slick is also a dancing emote where the player uses their feet to lower themselves to the ground before standing back up and tap dancing.

The Whirlwind emote is also a dance where the player spins around like a Tornado before slowing to a stop after a few spins. IDK, like the name suggests, is an emote where the player is shrugging their shoulders to say ‘I don’t know what’s happened.’

Two other emotes were also added in recent patches but have yet to be released. Cheer Up shows the player using pom-poms to complete a cheerleading routine whilst Time Out allows the player to call a Basketball-like timeout, T’ing up their hands and hearing a whistle being blown.

These emotes and their description were all a part of the recent leak from @lucas7yoshi_ on Twitter, who still regularly data mines in-game files to find unreleased content.

While Epic Games have tried to do their best to crack down on Fortnite leaks, they’ve been rather unsuccessful in doing so.

Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.

Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form.

This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
