Fortnite’s current season could be set for a major shakeup as a newly leaked skin may be hinting at upcoming storylines – potentially even a third faction to compete with Ghost and Shadow.

Storytelling in Fortnite has long been a slow burn. Epic Games often drop subtle teasers as a seasonal storyline builds towards a major climax. These season-ending storylines typically lead smoothly into the following act.


Season two of Fortnite’s second chapter has been no different. From the weekly Deadpool hints to the longstanding battle between the Ghost and Shadow factions.

The latest cosmetic leak has the Fortnite community going back and forth as to whether it could be teasing a massive storyline development.

An overview of the new Fortnite leak.

Following Fortnite’s latest update, prominent data miner ‘FortTory’ uncovered a brand new skin in the game’s files referred to as ‘Spy.’

The character appears as a stylish operative fit with an earpiece and plenty of weapon holsters. With his hands behind his back, the figure looks confident and all but ready for whatever action comes his way.

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the cosmetic, however, is the leaked character comes with a brand new logo on his right shoulder. A silver emblem is dropped onto a black patch with golden trimming to complete the unique look.


Could this leak be teasing the future of Fortnite?

While the leaked cosmetic could be nothing more than an upcoming skin, there might be more to it than meets the eye.

The dataminer questioned whether the skin would be usable, or if the character would purely just appear as an NPC at a Point of Interest. Perhaps even just a new addition to the main menu for instance.

Others have theorized the new logo could be teasing a third, secretive faction joining the seasonal battle. Perhaps to overthrow Ghost or Shadow, or even to take them both down? There are plenty of possibilities if this leak proves to be more than just a new cosmetic.

There’s no indicating when the leak may see the light of day on the live version of the game. Only a few weeks remain until the end of season two, however. The narrative should be pushed along soon given how close we are to season three.

In the meantime, here’s a rundown on everything you need to know to prepare for Season 3, including the release date, and more.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points

  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.
