A brand new item has been added to Fortnite Battle Royale, which allows players to see exactly where the storm is going to go ahead of time.

*Update – Epic Games Dev Says New ‘Eye of The Storm Tracker’ Was Accidentally Added to Fortnite Battle Royale

As with most battle royale games, it is very important to keep an eye on the storm in order to avoid unfortunate death in Fortnite.

The storm, or gas in other games like PUBG, is used to push the remaining players together on the map, so as to avoid too little action.

But the storm circle area can also be used to a players advantage, by getting there early you can of course wait on the edge for unsuspecting opponents who are trying to move in.

This new addition to Fortnite will help players do just that, as well as plan in advance their movements on the map, so to avoid losing health or even dying in the storm.

The new ‘Eye of The Storm Tacker’ is a loot item, which players can find around the map, similar to who you would find weapons and shields etc., and will show them the exact path of the storm on their map.

This item will be particularly useful for one of the Week 4 challenges of course, which tasks players to ‘Visit the center of different Storm Circles in a single match’.

It is also a sneaky surprise addition to the game, as there was no mention of it in recent patch notes, and Epic Games haven’t made an announcement about it on their official channels at the time of writing.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.

In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.

The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
