v9.10 patch introduces Hot Spots, specifically marked locations that include Loot Carriers, which drop high quality weapons for players to use in search of a Victory Royale.

Also included in the latest update is a special in-game event created with Nike’s Air Jordan sneaker brand. Called Fortnite x Jordan, it sees players taking to a custom-made Creative mode map where they can hit massive jumps and grind across the game’s map.

Epic GamesEpic Games announced a special in-game event in conjunction with Jordan.

While fans always look forward to seeing the new items and modes included in the game’s latest update, many are often even more excited about the leaked cosmetic items that are revealed by data miners following the release of a new patch.

These skins and other cosmetics are hidden away in the files of the game ready for their official release, but thanks to data miners, we can take a sneaky peak at what we can expect to see added to the item shop over the next few days.

However, even if a skin has been added to the game’s files it doesn’t mean that we will definitely see it in the item shop, as Epic Games have been known to include skins that never get released.

As usual, there are a number of leaked skins for the game, alongside a some new harvesting tools, backblings and wraps, so there will be plenty of new cosmetics to rock over the coming week.

Thanks to @HYPEX and @Lucas7Yoshi_ for this week’s leaks.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
