The Fortnite Season 6 teaser images seem to be forming a bigger picture

Fortnite fans are convinced that the teaser images for Season 6 of the game will fit together to fit a larger image of characters inside a cube.

The first teaser image, which was released on September 24, showed what seems to be a “DJ Llama” and a strange lightning bolt. The whole image is in the same shade of purple as the mysterious cube that recently melted into Loot Lake.

The second image follows in the same purple theme but this time it appears to show a female character in a cowgirl outfit and the caption “Saddle up,” which has led some people to suggest that horses (or perhaps ride-on Llamas) will be added in the near future.

However, some fans of the game have noticed that the first two images seem to fit together and they’re convinced that any future ones will build upon them to eventually form an entire cube.

Quaidee-Contnet put together the first two pictures in a post on imgur and it’s pretty hard to argue with it proving that the images are fitting together:

With the importance of the cube in Season 5, the fact that these images seem to be forming a cube probably shouldn’t come as a massive surprise.

Some people believe that the cube was some sort of gateway into a dark parallel universe and that a major event will take place in Loot Lake where it dissolved and formed an impenetrable layer.

Perhaps the third teaser image, which is expected to be released on September 26, will provide more answers and continue to help the community build the puzzle.

Season 6 of Fortnite is due to begin on September 27 along with a major update.

Fortnite players demand broken “pay to lose” Baby Yoda back bling is fixed

Fortnite players have discovered a bug that’s rendering their Baby Yoda aka The Child back bling cosmetic useless, as it stops them from being able to aim properly.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale introduced a major crossover when The Mandalorian made his way onto The Island. As well as a skin, a glider, and Beskar armor, there’s also a Baby Yoda back bling for players to unlock.

Claiming the Baby Yoda back bling is no easy feat, as players need to reach Level 100 of their Battle Pass to be able to carry the adorable Grogu on their back. This means plenty of grinding and weekly challenges to earn that all-important XP.

Now that Fortnite Season 5 has been out for a while, players are slowly starting to unlock the Baby Yoda back bling, but many of them are facing disappointment upon learning that their hard-earned reward is broken.

Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling is broken

In a Fortnite subreddit thread which has gained over 10k upvotes, Reddit user SweggyBoi highlighted the issue at hand: When you have Baby Yoda equipped, you can’t see where you’re aiming at all as it blocks more than half of the screen.

The problem seems to occur when the player enters and exits a car, causing Baby Yoda to become static. This is likely because the back bling hovers behind the player, rather than resting directly against their back as capes and backpacks do

You can see the moment where Baby Yoda blocks the player’s screen in Fortnite below. SweggyBoi and a number of other Reddit users have called on Epic to acknowledge and fix the problem.

Of course, an easy fix for this problem would be to simply not use the Baby Yoda back bling. But when most players have spent real money on the Battle Pass and dedicated hours of gameplay to unlocking the cosmetic, their frustration is understandable.

“How the f**k did this pass playtests?” asked one Reddit user, while another added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”

Others highlighted a different problem with Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling: “Because it sticks so far out from your back, when you’re hiding it either clips through the wall or shows around the corner.”

While the recent customizable superhero skin controversy resulted in players accusing Epic of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, the Baby Yoda back bling is being jokingly referred to as “pay to lose” as it’s actually hindering players’ performance.

Hopefully, Epic Games will issue some sort of fix for this problem in the near future.
