Fortnite Season X is set to introduce a new Starter Pack called “Red Strike” according to several leakers and a first look has been revealed. 

Starter Packs are a good way for Fortnite players to spend a couple of dollars to get access to new cosmetics and a small amount of V-Bucks.

These packs generally cost no more than $4.99 so they’re an excellent choice for many players who don’t like to spend a whole lot of money on the game. FNBRLeaks gave us our first look at the style of the new skin.

While we know what it looks like, we don’t know exactly what’s included in the pack, at least we didn’t until Shiina revealed it.

According to another leak, this pack will include an outfit, back bling, and 600 V-Bucks. It doesn’t sound like a harvesting tool will be included this time around which might be a bit disappointing.

“Silence your foes with the Red Strike Pack. An outfit, a back bling and 600 V-Bucks!”

One thing that wasn’t mentioned was the price but it should cost the same as any other pack before it.

We don’t yet know when the pack will release but considering it’s already in the files, it won’t be unavailable for long. It will join the long list of Starter Packs that have already been released into the game.

If we had to guess, the pack would become available with patch 10.10. Epic Games hasn’t reveal the start time for that update but we know it’ll be before August 16, at the absolute latest.

Patches usually come through in the middle of the week so Friday or beyond would be a strange move from Epic.

Epic GamesTilted Town doesn’t allow for any building or breaking.

On top of the Starter Pack, we can probably expect some other new content such as a weapon or location.

The theme of this season has been time travel with the return of Dusty Depot and now Tilted Town, so it’ll be interesting to see what Epic cooks up next.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
