Teasers for Fortnitemares seem to be a puzzle making one larger image

With two teaser images and poems now released for the mysterious ‘Fortnitemares’ 2018 in Fortnite, it looks like one larger images is set to be made of four parts.

The first teaser, released on October 20, showed an unreleased skin wearing what appeared to be the hat from another season 6 skin ‘Calamity’, along with the first cryptic poem.

Then, on October 21, a second image and poem was shared on Fortnite’s official Twitter, this time showing a rune trapped in chains, which some fans have speculated is the top of a pickaxe or a back bling.

However, some eagle eyed Fortnite fans noticed that there was small purple lines on both images, and when put side by side, they seem to line up perfectly.

Back when season 6 was being teased by Epic Games, they similarly used a technique where the teasers were coming together to form one larger image.

Courtesy of @fitriihsan713, Epic once again seems to be using this technique, as the two pictures, one of the unreleased skin and the other of the rune in chains, clearly match up.

It should be noted that in this example, the fan has used the versions uploaded to Fortnite’s official Instagram, rather than Twitter.

Judging by this, it would seem certain that at least two more teasers are to come in order to complete the full image, but what it is exactly is anyone’s guess at this point.

Further, if the two images are linked, it’s likely that the two cryptic poems are too, in one way or another, related. The first poem was as follows:

Costumes and dancing, 
Partner up, be wise. 
They could be friendly, 
Or a ghoul in disguise.

Followed by the second poem:

Tombstones quake, 
Keep your finger steady. 
The circle will close, 
Better be ready.

Perhaps this is one whole poem, yet to be completed, with four stanzas. We will have to wait and see, with another teaser expected from Epic on October 22.


Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
