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 search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
