A new Fortnite leak has apparently revealed the Crew bundle coming in March, and it includes a new skin based on one of the battle royale’s most famous characters.

Since day one, Fortnite’s Llamas have been some of the most popular figures in the game, and not just because they bless you with great loot if you’re lucky enough to find one during a match, though that is a major factor.

Soon, they’ll be appearing much more often in matches as a brand-new crew skin that, according to recent leaks and a teaser from Epic, should be arriving in March.

On February 21, the official Fortnite account tweeted out a teaser image with a dictionary-like description for “Llegend”, describing it as “someone you can always count on. A Llambro.”

With the Fortnite Crew logo pasted in the bottom right corner, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that this was somehow related to the new content pack coming for Fortnite’s premium subscription service next month. Sure enough, shortly after the tweet went out, leaks began to emerge about what would be included.

First look at leaked Legendary Llama skin in Fortnite

There have been plenty of convincing Llama skin concepts floating around the internet, but it seems we’ve now finally got our first look at the actual Llambro skin that will appear in March’s Fortnite Crew bundle.

Prominent Fortnite leaker Max aka @FNLeaksAndInfo shared a leaked image of March’s Crew pack, which features the rainbow-colored Llambro skin as well as various cosmetics including a pickaxe and a weapon skin.

 

Llambro Fortnite Crew skin release date

As far as when the new cosmetics will be available, new Crew content usually comes out on the last day of the month, so Sunday, February 28, 2021, could be when we see the Llambro and other items show up.

How to unlock the pack is extremely simple, as long as you don’t mind paying the monthly fee. All you need to do is sign up, and you’ll receive the current month’s Crew Pack immediately upon your subscription, and every new pack at the beginning of each month while you’re an active member.

What’s included with Llambro Fortnite crew skin: all items

According to Fortnite leaker ‘ShiinaBR,’ the new set includes the “Llegend” skin, the “Puffcorn Pick” Pickaxe, and “Llambro” Back Bling.

 

This is similar to what we’ve seen with Crew Packs before, containing an exclusive skin and other cosmetic items, but be sure to check in on Twitter @FortniteINTEL as we’ll have the official images of The Llegend and other items as soon as they drop.

A surprise v15.40.1 update for Fortnite has replaced a popular weapon with a vaulted classic, and also introduced a brand new LTM called Comeback.

There have been plenty of updates throughout Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale Fortnite, bringing in new hunters like Predator, original POIs like Kit’s Cantina, and Exotic Weapons like the healing Chug Cannon.

Usually, these quasi-weekly Fortnite updates get announced in advance by Epic themselves, but not even leakers saw the latest Season 5 hotfix coming, which came as a last-minute reveal from Fortnite’s official Twitter account.

Season 5 of Fortnite just got a surprise v15.40.1 update.

Fortnite unvaults Hand Cannon pistol

The Fortnite v15.40.1 hotfix launched on February 23, 2021, at 10 AM ET, and brought an old favorite out of the vault and back to the loot pool on The Island.

Players can now find the Hand Cannon in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode for the first time in over a year.

In its Rare variant, the weapon deals 75 Damage with a x2.0 headshot multiplier and 60 DPS. It has a fire rate of 0.8, a magazine size of 7, and a reload time of 2.1 seconds.

Hopefully you had a chance to enjoy the Flint-Knock pistol; the explosive weapon was only unvaulted last week in the v15.40 patch update, but it’s just been sent straight back into the vault by Epic to make way for the Hand Cannon.

Fortnite adds new Comeback LTM

Elsewhere, Fortnite players who’ve been craving a new experience from the game will be glad to hear that a brand new LTM called Comeback will be launching later this week in Squads format.

The previously leaked LTM grants each player five lives at the start of the match, and each time they die, the weapons that spawn for them will get progressively rarer, starting with Common and working up to Legendary.

With Season 5 of Fortnite coming to an end on March 15, 2021, it’s expected that there will be just one more update on the way. This will be v15.50, and leakers are predicting it will drop on March 2, 2021.
