Various celebrities and high-profile individuals have already voiced their love for the game, including the likes of Drake, Logic, Travis Scott, and a collection of others, which has allowed Fortnite to break into the ‘mainstream’ culture.

Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, continue to keep the game fresh by implementing constant updates and patches to bring new content to the title, such as outfits, emotes, and other cosmetic items.

However, no announcement was larger than that of the Fortnite X Avengers Limited Time Mode, which featured Thanos, the main villain from the recently released Infinity War film, as a playable character and generated a massive amount of hype.

Following the launch of the LTM, BasicallyIDoWrk, a popular YouTuber with over 3.5 million subscribers, put together an awesome mock trailer for Avengers Infinity War which features cinematic shots, an intense voiceover, and more.

As of writing, it is unknown how long the Fortnite X Avengers Limited Time Mode will last in the title, or if it is set to be removed with the next update.

Fortnite Flare Gun return leaked with major buff

A new Fortnite leak has claimed that the Flare Gun could be set to make a return in the near future, and it would be receiving quite a substantial buff too. 

As Fortnite seasons unfold, weapons and items are regularly cycled in and out of the loot pool – either for being too strong, too weak, or not fitting the theme of the new patch.

This means that some fan-favorite weapons might disappear from the game for one reason or another, either to return at some point later in the future or to never be seen again. 

In the case of the Flare Gun, which was initially added to the battle royale back in the v13.20 update but it was removed at the start of Chapter 2, Season 4. With some fans hoping to see it return, especially given the new fire mechanics, it appears as if Epic have got something up their sleeve.

The Flare Gun first appeared in a small short video from Epic Games.

Following the v14.30 update, which gave a buff to the Combat Shotgun and also brought the Rally Royale limited-time mode to the party, leakers uncovered a handful of changes coming in the future.

This includes the Flare Gun, which as leaker Mang0e_ pointed out, could be set to return to the battle royale after a spell in the vault, but with a little bit of a boost too. 

“The flare gun may be coming back to core modes soon,” the leaker tweeted on October 15. “The duration for marking enemies was re-added and increased to 15 seconds.”

While this is not set in the stone, as the leaker tweeted that it may return, some fans will be hoping that the Flare Gun does return – especially given its reported buff.

This increase in time with marking enemies would certainly make players think twice about ignoring the chance to use the Flare Gun. But, as ever, it’ll be up to Epic to make the final call.
