Following the v7.30 update for Fortnite Battle Royalethe full Snowfall skin has been revealed as data miners get their hands on the patch files.

The Snowfall skin is directly linked to Season 7’s ongoing Snowfall bonus challenges where players are required to find secret Battle Stars and Banners after completing all of the standard challenges for a week.

The identity and appearance of the skin has remained a mystery for much of the season, as players aim to complete the Snowfall challenges to unlock the skin, but leakers have now unveiled the full outfit.

Following the v7.30 content update on January 29, the game files in Fortnite were updated, and data miners immediately got to work.

Here’s what the Snowfall skin looks like in its entirety.

Update: All four stages of the Snowfall skin have now been revealed by leakers.

The data miner known as@s1l0x on Twitter shared a number of part-images and meshes on January 17 that appear to show a prisoner in the dungeon at Polar Peak. The leaker’s theory is that this prisoner will be the Snowfall skin:

“Inside of the dungeon below the Ice Castle (img.1). Inside the Ice is a mesh for a ‘Penguin_Block’ (img. 2) which connects to the chains. That mesh references a prisoner skin (img. 3) which I am 99% sure will be the snowfall skin. The prisoner had a T1 File. Tier 1?”

@s1l0xs1l0x believes these files are related to the Snowfall skin.

Judging by the arm shown in these images, it certainly looks like Snowfall is indeed the prisoner trapped inside the castle – soon to break free.

With Season 7 now approaching its final weeks, the thoughts of many Fortnite fans are on what to expect when Season 8 rolls around. Traditionally, the stories from challenges like the Road Trip, Blockbuster and Hunting Party have given us vague clues about what’s coming next.

If that’s the case again this time around, the official reveal of the mystery Snowfall skin, whenever it happens, is sure to answer a lot of questions and leave us with even more!

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
