Fortnite concepts can be found a dime a dozen all over Reddit and social media, but sometimes one emerges that stands out above all others.

This is referring to the recent project completed by the artist known online as ‘Ryai,’ who has created a series of Fortnite concept skins themed after the popular Japanese anime television series Dragon Ball Z.

The concept Ryai has presented, called Universe Warrior, features three Dragon Ball Z themed outfit skins, all of which have their own unique properties. 

While the skill with which they’ve been drawn is commendable in its own right, the more impressive aspect of this concept is the fact that these skins are dynamic and change shape after a player using them gets a certain number of eliminations in-game.

According to the image, once a player gets four eliminations, their in-game character goes into a mode called ‘Super Saiyan,’ which involves a considerable change in its appearance.

For those who are unfamiliar with DBZ terminology, Super Saiyan refers to an advanced transformation that certain characters in the series assumed to achieve great power.

The different Super Saiyan forms shown in the concept reflects the fact that characters in DBZ could reach different levels of the form, some stronger than others.

While some of the forms in the image theoretically outweigh the others, these changes are purely cosmetic and would simply depend on which character skin the player chooses to equip.

Not to be forgotten, the Nimbus Axe pickaxe is also very symbolic, since it combines the legendary Flying Nimbus cloud with the equally iconic Power Pole, both staples within the DBZ lore.

This Dragon Ball Z concept caught the eye of prominent Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who expressed strong admiration for the work in his tweet.

He even tagged the official English and Japanese Fortnite Twitter pages, and remarked that he “would pay $100 for these skins MINIMUM,” should the concept become reality.

New Fortnite leak reveals how weapon “mod” attachments will work

After it was leaked that Epic Games were apparently experimenting with weapon mods/attachments in Fortnite a few weeks back, more details have been revealed about the system itself, including how it’ll possibly work when it gets implemented.

The possibility of weapon mods in Fortnite is nothing new. Back in December, notable leaker HYPEX revealed that the idea was currently being tested by Epic Games but didn’t go into more detail about how it would work. Now he’s gotten his hands on more info.

According to the data-miner, these mods seem to work like attachments in other shooters. Players will be able to drop and attach new mods at any point they want and that each attachment will act like an “item”.

Presumably, this means that players will be able to come across different mods/attachments around the map and pick them up like other items.

In addition, HYPEX also confirmed that there’s a function tied to the feature called “PrintValidWeaponMods”, which he said means that weapons have “specific valid mods” that work with each weapon.

While not confirmed, this seems to mean that some weapons might have exclusive attachments/mods that can only be used on that gun and not others.

Finally, he revealed that each weapon will have multiple mod slots, meaning players won’t be restricted to just one attachment while they make their way through each match.

Epic Games
A new leak from HYPEX has revealed just how weapon mods might work in Fortnite.

Unfortunately, no other details have been leaked about the system itself. There’s no telling what kind of attachments/mods people will see from the feature. Will players be able to attach optics, extended mags, or grips that reduce recoil/spread? Only time will tell at this point. There’s also no time frame for when the feature will hit Fortnite, or even a 100% confirmation that it’ll end up getting added.

The game’s current season is set to end on March 15, so Epic might be able to squeeze out enough testing over the next few months so that they can debut the feature during the Season 6 launch, but that’s purely speculation.

Of course, once more details become available, you can be sure Dexerto will let you know, so keep it locked here.
