Dataminers have discovered that a special Prop Hunt mode will be added to v9.20 update.

Epic Games utilize limited time modes as a way of creating new game types, promoting movie releases such as John Wick and Avengers Endgame, or introducing new weapons and items that wouldn’t fit in normal battle royale gameplay.

It appears that fans of the title will soon be able to play one of gaming’s most popular party modes, as Prop Hunt is set to be added to Fortnite in the near future.

Epic GamesPlayers will soon be able to hide as props in this LTM.

Discovered in the game’s files was the Prop-o-matic gun, which will turn players into copies of objects found around the map. One team will be provided with the weapon in the game mode and use it to hide from opposing players who will try to find the various props that have been hidden around the map.

According to FireMonkeyFN, there is a set list of items that players can turn into, which include a number of food items, objects and more.

The full list of available props are:

  • Apple
  • Banana
  • Bread
  • Cereal
  • Cheese
  • Cheese Wheel
  • DurrBurger
  • DurrDrink
  • DurrFries
  • DurrHotSauce
  • Jar Of Jam

Prop Hunt is a recognizable game mode for fans of other titles such as Call of Duty, as it is regularly added to the game as a popular party playlist. It originally started life as a mod in Counter-Strike: Source, but became it’s own mode as part of the iconic Gary’s Mod game on Steam.

It’s currently unclear how the rules will wor, as the game’s incredibly large map would make it difficult for players to locate enemies. It’s possible that the mod will take place on a specifically designed Creative island, or that the storm will be used to limit the play area.

There’s no official release date for Prop Hunt, but with the files already spotted inside the game, it seems likely that we will see it in the next few weeks.


Epic responds to concerns over leaked Fortnite player logins

Fortnite players have made big claims that Epic is leaking player logins through the battle royale’s in-game leaderboard. However, the developer has insisted the system is safe, and there’s been no evidence of hacked accounts through it.

Security scares are no joke, and while developers do their best to keep them underwraps, they can sometimes appear where you least expect them.

That’s what Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber was claiming after being mysteriously logged out of his account. The Built By Gamers player claimed Fortnite’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ private information, including email addresses.

People could then use these emails to either try and brute force hack accounts, or reset passwords and kick players out of the game.

“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.

“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally ⁠— on Twitter, it means nothing normally ⁠— but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”

“This has happened to Clix, Nick Eh 30, Nate Hill ⁠— everyone. Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it ⁠— it’s disgraceful.”

However, people aren’t sold on Yung’s story. Fortnite dataminer ‘FNBRUnreleased’ has stated that it’s impossible. Epic’s API doesn’t allow for the sharing of information like Yung and others think.

“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they claimed.

FNBRUnreleased’s standpoint has been backed up by Epic. The developer published a statement in response to Yung’s claims, saying leaderboards do not leak any players’ secure information.

“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.

“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

For now, players should just always make sure their passwords are strong to best protect against any leak. Plus, turn on two-factor authentication if you can.
