Another week means another Fortnite update, with the v15.20 patch releasing on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch on Wednesday, January 13.

Fortnite Season 5 is well underway with, with players given plenty of time to get accustomed to the new Zero Point map and the bounty system that has changed how the battle royale is played drastically.

Of course, Epic Games aren’t ones to sit on their laurels, and after a busy festive season, the developers have finally dropped the 15.20 patch for the game to help keep things fresh for those searching for Victory Royales.

Players have two new weapons to look forward to this week, alongside new details on the “secret” Battle Pass Outfit, and another adjust to Pre-Edit Options. Here’s everything you need to know about the patch before you jump out of the Battle Bus.

Lever Action Shotgun

The headline addition in the 15.20 patch is the Lever Action Shotgun, which is sure to pack a punch any time you find yourself in close-quarters combat.

Epic claim the weapon is “no peashooter,” and that “one well-aimed blast is enough to drop even the heartiest foe,” so this is likely to dominate situations where you’re up close and personal with enemies.

Damage statistics for the Lever Action Shotgun aren’t available just yet, but the developers have confirmed it will be available in regular loot drops, so it shouldn’t be too hard to get your hands on one.

Hop Rock Dualies Exotic

Alongside the Lever Action Shotgun, players will also be able to get their hands on a new Exotic weapon, the Hop Rock Dualies.

Players can spend their Gold Bars to purchase it from Characters around the island, and with the Hop Rock Dualies, you’ll be able to jump around and drop in on your opponents before shredding through the enemy.

On top of that, Epic have also confirmed that the reduced price offer for Exotic items has been continued, so you can get your hands on the Dualies for less.

Secret Battle Pass Outfit Clues

Players looking for new information on the Secret Battle Pass Outfit are also coming in this update, with Epic confirming that the mystery characters has left some clues in Stealthy Stronghold about who they are, and what they’re planning for the future of Fortnite.

Elsewhere, Agent Jones is set to bring in two new Hunters to join The Mandalorian and the rest of his squad to ensure peace on the Fortnite island while Zero Point continues.

Pre-Edit Options

After making some major changes to Pre-Edit Options in the v15.10 update, Epic have continued to tweak the mechanic after listening to feedback from players.

With ‘Disable Pre-Edits’ turned on, all player-built structures will be uneditable until they are physically placed in the environment, making it easier for players to select the right piece every time.

Signal Fire in Fortnite

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.

Fortnite’s Halloween update has brought some new content to the Fortnitemares event. This includes some brand-new Punchcards that have brought Ariana Grande back as an NPC on Fortnite Island.

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

Fortnite Signal Flare Location

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.

Fortnite Signal Flare

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.

One of these tasks you with revealing the Command Symbol, and we’ve got an in-depth guide for that too. Completing more Punchard Quests will help you level up faster, so be sure to try it out.

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.

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.

Here’s everything we know about the new celebrity bundle.

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.

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.

Naruto in Fortnite

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.

Fortnite has become known for its major crossovers with other franchises, as heroes like Gamora and Superman have joined other characters in the battle royale during Season 7.

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.

Some of the crossover skins teased in the survey have arrived in the game, like Lebron James and Ariana Grande. According to Fortnite leaker Shiina, Epic wants Naruto to be included in Season 8.

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.
