Popular Australian content creator Kathleen ‘Loserfruit’ Belsten has seemingly had her upcoming Fortnite skin and other cosmetics leaked as well as the potential release date for her bundle. 

Ever since Fortnite exploded onto the battle royale market back in 2017, players have been setting themselves apart from the crowd with cosmetics. With a tonne of content creators getting involved – be it streaming, YouTube, or trying to go pro – players have been begging Epic to make skins of them so that they can represent their favorite Fortnite player.

Back in January, Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was the first streamer to officially receive a skin via the Icon series – while Loserfruit and TheGrefg were also noted to be receiving cosmetics at some point down the line.

Now, it appears the time for Loserfruit’s cosmetics is almost upon us. Since the v12.60 patch for Fortnite, dataminers like ‘Lucas7Yoshi’ and ‘SkinTrackerCom’ have been uncovering a few details about the Australian YouTuber’s Icon skin.

The skin features Belsten in bright tie-dye from legs to toe, rocking a pink baseball cap, a hoodie, leggings, and pink sneakers. The skin bears quite the resemblance to the streamer, who is one of Fortnite’s most popular content creators.

It also comes with an accompanying “Fruit Punchers” emote and a “Bounce Berry” backbling. It’s unclear as to whether Loserfruit will be getting a glider and pickaxe along with her skin and other cosmetics.

While her cosmetics have been leaked, fans of the Aussie content creator had been left asking when will they be able to spend their V Bucks on her new items and show their support in-game.

 

 

According to reliable leaker iFireMonkey, Loserfruit’s cosmetics are set to be available in the item shop on June 3rd. However, the leaker was unable to point out the price of the items.

Fans will just have to wait and see if what the leakers have found proves to be her skin or if Epic is hiding something else up their sleeve.

Though, judging by the supposed release date, it seems as if they won’t have to wait too much longer.

Another week of Fortnite Season 5 action means another set of challenges for players to complete. Here’s how to complete the game’s Week 6 quests, with handy location details you will need along the way. 

Fortnite fans both casual and hardcore will know the importance of completing challenges and quests. Not only do they give you a sense of achievement in the game, but they also unlock XP – and sometimes rare cosmetics or wraps.

If you’re looking to progress to the next tier of the Battle Pass, or there’s a specific skin you want to get your hands on in the Battle Pass, completing the weekly challenges is one of the fastest ways to get there.

Completing weekly challenges will help you progress through the Battle Pass and unlock these skins.

Week 6 of Season 5 brings with it a fresh batch of quests for players to complete, and while some of them are everyday tasks you’ll likely complete without even trying, others will require a little more dedication.

Unlike last week’s gnome-inspired challenges, this week the focus is on fishing, with players needing to catch fish, blow up fish, and destroy various fishing-related items. We hope you like fishing!

Fortnite Season 5 Week 6 Challenges

There are a total of seven regular challenges and one legendary challenge to complete this week, which you can see in the list below:

  • Blow up Fishing Holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, or Flopper Pond (3)
  • Destroy Motorboats (3)
  • Blow up Fishing Holes at Lazy Lake Island, Lake Canoe, and near Steamy Stacks (3)
  • Catch Fish (7)
  • Signal the Coral Buddies (1)
  • Destroy Boats (7)
  • Destroy Fishing Rod Barrels (7)
  • Get Headshots (20, 40, 60, 80, 100)

Let’s start with the easy ones first: Catching fish, destroying fishing rod barrels, and destroying boats. You should be able to chip away at all three of these challenges in the same area. Simply visit large bodies of water, like the island just north of Misty Meadows.

Blowing up fishing holes will require you to visit six different locations: Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, Flopper Pond, Lazy Lake Island, Lake Canoe, and Steamy Stacks. Throw grenades into the randomly-spawned fishing holes or use the missile feature on a motorboat.

The Coral Buddies will make a return this week, although we’re not sure what ‘signaling’ them means right now. Players could be making a trip to the lighthouse, perhaps? We’ll have step-by-step instructions ready to go right here once the challenge goes live.

Finally, the legendary challenge will prove difficult for those who don’t have a steady hand; you’ll need to get a grand total of 100 headshots. There are XP rewards for every 20 headshots achieved, though, so even if you don’t complete it fully, you’ll still get something along the way.

We’ll have guides to complete these challenges once they go live in Fortnite, so make sure you check back then.
