Ninja pleads with Epic Games after other streamers get early access to new Fortnite pack

Epic Games gave out the Lava Legends skin pack to various Fortnite streamers and Ninja was upset ‘TimTheTatman’ and ‘Dakotaz’ got it before him.

The Lava Legends pack includes a collection of cosmetics that transforms a character into something that looks like it crawled right out of Fortnite’s new volcano.

Similar to many cosmetic bundles like this, Epic Games likes to give a few to various influencers, mainly the top Twitch streamers who can showcase the skins and potentially get their thousands of viewers to pick it up.

Ninja is usually one of the first streamers that come to mind when you think of Fortnite streamers so you’d figure he’d be one of the first to receive access to the pack.

While he was no doubt scheduled to receive one, he seemed to be a bit shocked, to say the least, that Tim received the pack before he did.

“If I’m about to watch what I think I’m about to watch,” Ninja said. “Wait, Epic asked Tim if he wanted the Lava Legend pack? He got it!?”

Ninja and Tim are very good friends so the jabs were all in good fun. However, Ninja also had a similar reaction when he found out Dakotaz also received the skin.

“Epic gave what to Dakotaz,” Ninja asked. “Dude, what do I have to do to be loved?”

It’s surely all joking as Epic Games regularly hooks up Ninja with the newest packs in Fortnite, it just seems like it might take a little bit longer for this one.

Even though Ninja may not have gotten the Lava Legends pack early, he can certainly find solace in the fact that he’s now one of the faces of Red Bull, having just debuted his own special can. 

These special cans of Red Bull will be on sale in the United States beginning April 1 and will run while supplies last.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
