Internet detectives have confirmed the existence of previously leaked Fortnite Battle Royale secret quests, and it appears that one of them is already in the game while two more could be coming soon.

About a week ago, popular Fortnite leaker, FireMonkey, revealed three secret quests that would be popping up on the battle royale to finish Season 2: “Stop the Battle,” “Teddies Libearated!” and “Celebrate the Truce.”

“Teddies Liberated!” is reportedly already available for completion, but not much information had been available about the other two—until now. One user, niitq, has decrypted Fortnite’s code and confirmed via Twitter that “Celebrate the Truce” will be the next secret quest.

Secret quests are always a fun way to earn extra XP and these seem to be no exception.

We’ve already had a number of quests this season that included the game’s gnomes and bears. At the start of April, there were the “For the Bears” and “For the Gnomes” missions, which required finding hidden honey pots and telescopes, respectively. 

While it’s unclear how much XP will be awarded in the new secret ones, but the two mentioned above each gave players 40,000, and “Teddies Libearated!” awards players 15,000.

The names and descriptions of leaked Fortnite secret quests.

So far, all we know about these leaked quests is that they involve the teddy bears, gnomes, and dancing. 

From the descriptions, FireMonkey discovered that “Stop the Battle” requires disarming the bears and gnomes—effectively forcing a truce, while “Celebrate the Truce” more jovially enlists players to “dance for the generals.”

These secret objectives are likely additions that will complement the Astronomical and Midas’ Mission challenge sets, granting players more opportunities to gain the experience needed for their favorite rewards.

With the first leaked quest already popping up under the radar, fans should keep their eyes out in case more information is revealed about the other two quests. 

Once those are discovered, explanatory guides and videos are bound to surface for players eager to level up before the season’s end.

Epic responds to concerns over leaked Fortnite player logins

Fortnite players have made big claims that Epic is leaking player logins through the battle royale’s in-game leaderboard. However, the developer has insisted the system is safe, and there’s been no evidence of hacked accounts through it.

Security scares are no joke, and while developers do their best to keep them underwraps, they can sometimes appear where you least expect them.

That’s what Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber was claiming after being mysteriously logged out of his account. The Built By Gamers player claimed Fortnite’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ private information, including email addresses.

People could then use these emails to either try and brute force hack accounts, or reset passwords and kick players out of the game.

“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.

“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally ⁠— on Twitter, it means nothing normally ⁠— but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”

“This has happened to Clix, Nick Eh 30, Nate Hill ⁠— everyone. Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it ⁠— it’s disgraceful.”

However, people aren’t sold on Yung’s story. Fortnite dataminer ‘FNBRUnreleased’ has stated that it’s impossible. Epic’s API doesn’t allow for the sharing of information like Yung and others think.

“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they claimed.

FNBRUnreleased’s standpoint has been backed up by Epic. The developer published a statement in response to Yung’s claims, saying leaderboards do not leak any players’ secure information.

“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.

“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

For now, players should just always make sure their passwords are strong to best protect against any leak. Plus, turn on two-factor authentication if you can.
