The official Fortnite Twitter account changed its avatar, and threw in a few cryptic teasers for the ‘Fox Clan’ before deleting these new posts just a few hours later. These tweets hinted at a new Crew skin for Drift.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is set to end on March 15, 2021, and it has brought a ton of exciting crossovers with franchises such as Predator, and Halo. Now, players are wondering what Epic Games will introduce in the next big update.
On January 24, the battle royale’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out a couple of teasers that let us know what might see in the future. These tweets were deleted after a few hours, but this has led to mass speculation among fans.
New Fortnite Drift Crew skins teased
Both tweets referenced a character named Drift, who was a character introduced in Fortnite Chapter 1, Season 5. The first post was the beginning of a scan, and it included the cryptic message: “Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?”
The second tweet consisted of an ominous warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” We haven’t seen the Fox Clan in Fortnite before, but this seems to tie in with the account’s new avatar.
Reliable Fortnite data miner HYPEX tweeted that the new teasers are related to a new Fortnite Crew skin for Drift, which seem to be a gender-bent version of the character. They then confirmed the skin will be part of the Fortnite Crew subscription in February.
If you have this monthly subscription model, you can get the Battle Pass along with 1,000 V-bucks when the new Season goes live. HYPEX confirmed that the new Drift skin will be part of an upcoming Crew Pack.
The official Fortnite account then posted a few more tweets and then backtracked by deleting all of the posts in which they teasing this new content. They even changed the account’s avatar back to its previous image.
Now, this could mean that the teasers were part of a grander scheme that Epic Games have yet to fully reveal, or maybe they deleted the teasers because they accidentally revealed these plans earlier than they had initially planned.
So far, we haven’t gotten any new information from Epic Games about what this is all building up to. HYPEX and other data miners have also not posted any additional information at the time of writing.
Drift’s original kitsune appearance and skins made him a fan-favorite during his time in the battle royale, so Epic Games releasing a new skin for him is certainly intriguing. Hopefully, these rumors will bear fruit, and we’ll get learn more about this soon.

Where to launch Signal Flares in Fortnite Season 8 Punchcard Quest
Here’s how to find and launch Signal Flares for Fortnite Season 8’s Ariana Grande Fortnitemares Punchcard Quest to earn some XP and rewards.
Ariana Grande has arrived in Fortnite as an NPC and for her Fortnitemares Punchcard Quests, you’ll need to launch Signal Flares. Here’s how you can get this done quickly.
For one of her Quests, you’ll need to launch a few Signal Flares to contact other hunters. These can be found in different areas across the map, and you’ll need to visit them to complete the Quest.
This guide will go over all the locations that you can visit to get this done.
Fortnite Signal Flare locations
You can find Signal Flares in a total of 4 locations on Fortnite Island. They resemble large brightly colored fireworks with dynamite on the side, so they’re fairly hard to miss if you’re in their vicinity.
Here are all the Signal Flare locations in Fortnite:
- Shattered Saucer
- East of Primal Pond
- South west of Dirty Docks
- West of FN Radio
For this quest, you only need to visit three of these locations, so head over there and interact with the Signal Flares to launch them. This will help you get in contact with the hunters.
Once you’ve launched 3 Signal Flares, you’ll be rewarded with 30,000 XP and this Quest will be marked as complete. You can also complete other Ariana Grande Punchcard Quests for some more XP.
However, you need to watch out for other players who might also be in the area to complete the Punchcard Quests before you do. Make sure you’ve got some solid weapons and gear to defend yourself.

How to get Spacefarer Ariana Grande Fortnite skin: Price & bundle contents
A new Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin has arrived, so here’s how to get your hands on the new bundle and all of its cosmetics.
Fortnite has welcomed a brand new Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin and bundle into the game. Here’s everything you need to know about the new bundle, including how to get it, the price, and the contents.
Flashy skins, bundles, and cosmetics have become a massive staple of the Fortnite experience, and Ariana Grande has been a recent beneficiary of Epic Games’ attitude towards celebrity skins.
Ariana Grande has had multiple tie-ins to Fortnite with a special Ariana Grande ICON Series skin and also a live event concert. She’s now set for another partnership with Fortnite as a Fortnite Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle has arrived.
Here’s everything we know about the new celebrity bundle.
How to buy the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle
Fortnite’s Spacefarer Ariana Grande bundle arrived in the Item Shop on October 21, bringing the new skin and its associated cosmetics.
The Fortnite Spacefarer Ariana Grande bundle also marks the return of the classic Ariana Grande skin, which originally arrived as part of the Rift Tour event.
Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle contents & price
Ariana Grande’s Spacefarer bundle sells for 2,500 V-Bucks, which is slightly cheaper than the 2,800 V-Bucks for the original Ariana Grande bundle.
The Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin comes with a transformation emote, changing the skin into the alien-themed Starfire Ariana Grande. Players can readily switch between the two styles by using the Just Keep Breathin’ Emote.
Of course, you can buy each item from the Spacefarer bundle, such as the Pickaxe and Backbling, separately.
Here’s each item from the bundle and their individual prices:
- Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin, I.R.I.S Backbling, and Just Keep Breathin’ Emote – 2,000 V-Bucks
- Spacefarer Lightscythe Pickaxe – 800 V-Bucks
- I.R.I.S Daydream Glider – 1,200 V-Bucks
- Spooky Smallz Backbling – 400 V-Bucks
Buying the bundle as a whole will save you 1,500 V-Bucks, so will be worth it if you’re a big Ariana Grande fan.
Also, check out all of the NPC locations for Fortnite Season 8, which now includes Ariana Grande.

When will Naruto come to Fortnite? New skin release date
A Naruto skin is seemingly on its way to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about when it will arrive in the game.
There’s wide speculation about the arrival of popular anime character Naruto as a new skin in Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about this, including the skin’s possible release date.
More crossover skins were uncovered by data miners from a survey by Epic Games. While one of these was part of a hoax, there are still many other interesting ones that might be coming soon, including a Naruto skin.
Fortnite Naruto skin release date
Now, we seem to be one step closer to confirming the arrival of Naruto after Twitch streamer candywingx appeared to confirm the arrival of the skin.
The player recently retweeted a real-life meeting with Chief Creative Officer at Epic Games Donald Mustard, and it was hinted that they had been discussing the future of Fortnite.
If the anime protagonist arrives as part of the next Battle Pass in Fortnite Season 8, then we’ll likely see him added to the game on September 18, 2021. If the skin isn’t ready by then, it may appear in the Item Store at a later date.
We might also see the arrival of other characters from the Naruto universe, like Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi.
If Naruto arrives in Fortnite, the player base may significantly increase, since the anime has a huge fandom that’s spread out across the globe. It may even open the door to other anime crossovers like Dragon Ball.
Season 6 of the influential battle royale game also featured a few generic anime skins, but this would be a huge step up. Hopefully, Epic Games will give us some confirmation on the Naruto skin’s arrival.
