Ninja hasn’t made his motivations for the switch clear, other than explaining it has helped him reconnect with his community, but some fans believe he may also have some ulterior motives.
Tfue has likely benefitted from Ninja’s departure, although it was no secret that he had already usurped his rival as the most-watched Fortnite star.
While his comment was likely in jest, as Tenney continues to dominate the Fortnite category on Twitch, there has been a wave of criticism against the platform, despite continuing to be by far the biggest website for streaming.
The new update finally brings Predator to The Island. The iconic movie villain will be a Boss character at Stealthy Stronghold for players to take on, and eliminating him will bring with it a pretty sweet reward.
After he’s taken down, he will drop the Predator’s Cloaking Device. This will allow players to go “nearly” invisible for up to 30 seconds at a time, with a 30 second cooldown time between use.
The device’s effect will be removed if you change weapons or enter the water.
Fortnite players might finally encounter the Predator soon.
Jungle Hunter Quests and new Predator cosmetics
A few more Jungle Hunter Quests have been added to the Battle Pass. Completing these will unlock the long-awaited Predator skin as well as a number of cosmetics to match.
There’s a Yautja Wristblades pickaxe, a Hunter’s Trophy back bling, a The Hunt loading screen, a Bio-Helmet Online emote, and a Hunter’s Arsenal weapon wrap to unlock.
IO Guards removed from Arena
The IO Guards, which relentlessly target players upon sight, will be removed from Arena gameplay following the new v15.21 update.
They will remain in Battle Royale mode, though.
Return of fan-favorite LTMs?
Along the news of tomorrow’s update, we also got a peak into an old limited time mode (LTM) that could hit the live servers tomorrow.
Fortnite dataminer ‘ShiinaBR’ found image assets for the ‘Floor is Lava’ mode back into the game’s API that could mean it’s “likely to return as a regular LTM in the next few days.”
One of the biggest issues that Epic is going to try to sort out will be the glitch that makes some players receive damage mid-air when falling inside a car.
In fact, there’s a couple of fixes going into the game that revolved around its vehicles including the “inconsistent camera behavior or stuttering after being near a Car [players] recently drove then exited.”
There’s a few points that the studio is going to try and address, so hopefully the update goes without a hitch.
