A set of unreleased emotes have been discovered in the game files for Fortnite following the most recent update, v5.30, and have been leaked online.

With every new update, Epic Games, developer of Fortnite, adds new items and changes to the game to keep it fresh – as well as to sell players new cosmetics.

As well as character skins, emotes are one of the most popular in-game purchases, giving your character some seriously wacky moves to perform in the lobby, spawn island or mid game.

With patch v5.30, six new emotes have been discovered, by trusted data miners, TwoEpicBuddies.

Because these emotes aren’t yet available in game, there is no footage of what they look like fully, only these previews with their names.

UPDATE – Data miners have leaked the rarities and in-game footage (with audio) of these six emotes. Check them out by clicking here.

It also isn’t possible to tell their rarity, or how many V-Bucks they will cost, but they should be available in the store very soon, so not long to wait.

Prices for emotes in Fortnite have in the past varied from 200 V-Bucks for the Uncommon variety to 800 V-Bucks for the Epic rarity.

As well as new cosmetic items, there has also been a number of other leaks coming from game files as part of v5.3.

A new ‘Shockwave’ grenade has been discovered, which looks particularly intriguing, as it is suspected to be a legendary version of the impulse grenade.

Another new item, the ‘Rift-to-go’ has already been spotted in-game, and you can see footage of it in action here.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Ruckus is holding both of the weapons in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
