Twitch Streamer LyndonFPS Meets Fortnite Hacker Using Unreleased Skins

Twitch streamer LyndonFPS recently played Fortnite with someone that already has access to unreleased cosmetics, like the P.A.N.D.A Team Leader outfit.

Viewers of the stream, and Lyndon himself, quickly became suspicious that the young player had used some form of hack to gain access to the various cosmetic items.

This was soon confirmed when Lyndon asked “are you like a hacker?” and the player responded with “uh kinda, yeah”.

Lyndon quickly responded by saying “I gotta go dude” and removing the hacker from his lobby.

Unfortunately it appears that hacks are becoming more of an issue in Fortnite Battle Royale on a daily basis, particularly on the PC version of the game.

Some Lyndon fans claim that they can be edited into the game and used in the lobby but not in proper matches so it is hard to determine how much of a game breaking hack this is.

While Fortnite is completely free to play, various cosmetics and skins can only be purchased with V-Bucks (which can be earned or bought for real money) and some players seem to think that hacking them is an easier option.

People tend to think of hackers using aim or vision assistance to perform better in-game, hacks for skins and items seem to becoming particularly prevalent in Fortnite.

Epic Games has taken a strong stance against hackers of any kind in Fortnite so it seems likely that the player’s account will be deleted in the near future.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.

 

After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
