Fortnite dev teases GI Joe crossover for Season 5

G.I Joe could be the next addition coming to Fortnite Season 5’s already star-studded line-up thanks to a hint from an Epic employee.

Fortnite fans have already been treated to a smorgasbord of Hollywood and gaming royalty in Fortnite Season 5. A recent Tweet from an Epic Games dev has suggested that this shows no signs of slowing with G.I Joe possibly next in line.

The Season of the bounty hunter has proven to be fruitful for Fortnite Season 5 with the game featuring a whole host of surprising and unexpected names. It was difficult to see how the tyranny of Galactus and the fight of the superheroes could be topped, but Epic Games has found a way to outdo themselves.

This season we’ve seen the likes of Kratos, The Terminator, Predator, and there are even more possible leaks with everyone’s favorite fighting heroine Lara Croft rumored too. But now one of the world’s favorite action hero teams could be inbound.

Donald Mustard – Chief Creative Officer at Epic Games – recently posted a Tweet that appeared to drop several hints towards the inclusion of G.I Joe in Fortnite.

The first clue that fans picked up on was the comic that he appears to be reading. One perceptive person was able to identify the drawings and frames from the comic book and confirm that they are from G.I Joe 21 – The Silent Issue!

Our next hint can be found on Donald’s arm as he bears a tattoo that clearly replicates the Arashikage Clan logo. They are a Japanese Ninja clan that can be found in the G.I Joe universe. Also, Donald Mustard has even changed his location to “Arashikage Clan” as well.

The third and final point that seems to substantiate the G.I Joe rumor is that Fortnite has posted a Reality Log with the Target Description: Ninja Master. This once again seems to refer to the Arashikage clan.

Furthermore, “Knowing is half the battle” is a direct G.I Joe reference.

Either the Fortnite dev has suddenly been overcome by G.I Joe nostalgia or this all points to G.I Joe arriving in Fortnite at some point.

Despite the official Reality Log, we will have to wait until it’s officially confirmed by Epic Games, and will obviously treat this as a rumor for the time being.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 the Fortnite Naruto skin will possibly arrive.

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, and Season 8 brought a plethora of exciting new skins such as Carnage, Venom, and characters from the movie Dune.

More crossover skins were uncovered by data miners from a survey by Epic Games, including a Naruto skin. It seems that the popular anime protagonist is on his way to the battle royale title.

Here’s everything we know about his arrival.

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 Games want Naruto to be included in Season 8.

While it was initially reported that he would be part of the Season 8 Battle Pass, it now seems like that Naruto will appear in the Item Store as DLC before the season comes to an end on December 5, 2021.

Is Naruto confirmed for Fortnite?

Twitch streamer candywingx appeared to confirm the arrival of the Fortnite Naruto skin after meeting with Chief Creative Officer at Epic Games Donald Mustard. It was hinted that they had been discussing the future of Fortnite.

At first, the streamer made it seem like Naruto would be included in the Season 8 Battle Pass, but this was later corrected.

On October 16, notable leaker HYPEX shared information about a new character with the codename ‘Headband’ that was added in the v18.20 update.

While details about this NPC are scarce, codenames often hint at the identity of the unknown character. This might be alluding to Naruto’s arrival since his headband is one of the most well-known parts of his design.

We might also see the arrival of other characters from the Naruto universe, like Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi.

Prominent data miner Shiina stated that the anonymous source who previously predicted both the Ariana Grande concert and the recent Suicide Squad skins has claimed that Epic Games have acquired the rights to Naruto.

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.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and Epic Games have yet to verify this information. So, it’s worth taking this information about a possible Fortnite Naruto skin with a grain of salt until they do.

Hopefully, they will give us some confirmation on the Fortnite Naruto skin’s arrival soon enough. We’ll keep checking for new developments and will be sure to update this article once we have any.
