One of the new additions to Fortnite Battle Royale for Season 7 has been a long time request, as players will now be able to personalize weapons and vehicles with the new ‘Wraps’ option.

Instead of every weapon you pick up just being the boring old grey color, you will be able to equip new Wraps by levelling up your battle pass.

And not just weapons, as vehicles like the Quadcrasher can also be customized with Wraps too, giving them a much more personal feel when in game.

Update: Here’s a look at every wrap available in the Season 7 Battle Pass, plus what tier you will unlock it. Epic Games will probably add more in the shop too throughout Season 7.

We got a first glimpse at these new Wraps being applied to weapons and vehicles in the trailer, showing the standard Assault Rifle is one of the weapons which can be personalized.

In the official patch notes, only Rifles and Shotguns are mentioned, so it sounds like certain other weapons such as pistols or SMG’s may not have wraps available (yet).

Give your weapons and vehicles a new look with Wraps. Level up your Battle Pass to unlock different Wraps, then equip them in your locker to items like vehicles, shotguns, rifles and more.

Here’s an example of Wraps on the Assault Rifle, which even for just plain red and blue certainly make the weapons a lot better to look at, and we can only imagine how creative the developers will get with these.

Also shown was examples of Wraps on the Quadcrasher. Presumably you will be able to use wraps on all vehicles in the game – including the new Stormwing plane.

For players who have grown to love weapon camo’s in other games, the new Wraps feature will be one of the most exciting additions to Fortnite in Season 7.

The trailer also shows what they look like in-game, and you can definitely notice them even in third-person, as is shown with the burst AR.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
