The Fortnite Season 5 Holiday update will bring a new mechanic called “Dynamic Ice” to the game.
Fortnite’s Winterfest is upon us, which will likely bring us free skins and a festive map update to celebrate the Holiday season. Previous leaks have pointed to a Slurp Bazooka, a Christmas Flopper, and Snowman NPC, and now leakers are talking about “Dynamic Ice”.
The Holiday updates trailer has already been leaked by Fortnite leaker “Mang0e”, and depicts a holiday theme for the game, snowmen, and a festive plane in the distance.
Additionally, with the leak of the Trailer, Mang0e found that environmental ice is mentioned in the game’s files.
Apparently, it has been in the works alongside fire in patch 15.00. With this system, Ice will be melted by fire and there also may be a way for water to turn into ice as well. If this does come to the game, it will most definitely be used for Winterfest. The purpose of the electricity effect is currently unknown.
Of course with leaks, you’ll want to take this with a grain of salt. Nothing is confirmed until Epic announces it, and out of all the recent leaks this one holds the least substance due to it being based off a few strings in the games files.
Hopefully, we do see this mechanic added to the game though, perhaps the lakes in the game will freeze to ice and we will be able to break the ice with this mechanic.
Whatever it does, we’re sure to find out if it makes it in the Holiday update, which is due to release by December 20, if all follows past Fortnite winter event schedules.
We’ll update you if we get any more information regarding the release of the Winterfest event.
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.
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.

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.
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.

All NPC locations in Fortnite Season 8: Ariana Grande, Ghostbusters, more
Here are the locations for each of Fortnite Season 8’s NPCs who can turn you into a Prop, reveal future storm circles, and give you Quests.
Fortnite Season 8 features various wacky NPCs you can visit around the island, so here are all of the Fortnite NPC locations for whenever you might need to find these individuals.
Along with the beginning of Fortnite Season 8 came the introduction of several new NPCs, such as Carnage and Fabio Sparklemane. Some of these can be found around the island, and by spending Gold Bars, these NPCs can reveal future Storm Circles, give you a Rift, or turn you into a Prop.
To complete your collection of every character, you need to find all 25 scattered around the Fortnite map. Some are even necessary to complete the Character Punchcard Quests. This can be tricky as Fortnite no longer tells you where to find them once you’re in a game.
Here’s every Fortnite Season 8 NPC and their location on the updated map.
All Fortnite Season 8 NPC locations
Thanks to the website Fortnite.GG, we’ve got the Fortnite NPC locations discovered in Season 8 so far. Fortnite.GG has also marked each character to tell you if they’ll reveal the future storm circle or turn you into a Prop for the right price.
Here are the detailed locations of each Fortnite Season 8 NPC:
- Baba Yaga: In the shack to the south-west of Sludgy Swamp
- Fabio Sparklemane: In the Apres Ski building south-west of Misty Meadows
- Dark Jonesy: In the main building of Steamy Stacks (sells Rift)
- Kor: On the east end of Misty Meadows
- Dusk: On the hill directly west of Lazy Lake (turns you into a Prop)
- Torin: North-east side of The Aftermath (reveals Future Storm Circle)
- Kitbash: In the container area at the east end of Dirty Docks
- Madcap: In the barn to the east of Corny Crops
- Penny: West side of Retail Row
- Pitstop: North-east corner of Boney Burbs (reveals Future Storm Circle)
- Charlotte: South-east house of Pleasant Park
- Scuba Jonesy: West of Coral Castle
- J.B Chimpanski: In the Weather Station south of Catty Corner (reveals Future Storm Circle)
- Toona Fish: In the Viking Vessel west of Holly Hedges
- The Brat: At the Food Truck north of Lazy Lake
- Wrath: Inside the remains of Stealthy Stronghold (reveals Future Storm Circle)
- Grim Fable: West side of Weeping Woods
- Big Mouth: Pizza Pit north-east of Corny Crops
- Cube Assassin: Inside Sideways encounters
- Raven: Inside Hydro 16 (sells Rift)
- Nighthare: At FN Radio, east of Craggy Cliffs (sells Rift)
- Dire: South building in Camp Cod
- Ragsy: In Risky Reels
- Ariana Grande: On the pier in Beliver Beach
- Containment Specialist: East building in Camp Cod
The NPC that might trip players up is the Cube Assassin. This hostile NPC can only be found inside Sideways encounters. These appear as dark rifts on the map, and when you activate them, you’ll need to fight Cube Monsters and the Cube Assassin. Once completed, you can purchase Cube Monster parts from them.
Also, if you want to finish the Ghostbusters Questline, you’ll need to speak to the Containment Specialist in Camp Cod’s eastern building.
These NPCs are guaranteed to spawn in every match of Fortnite, so you should have no trouble finding the Fortnite NPC locations. However, NPCs are known to move around, so we’ll update you if they are found in any more locations.
More Fortnite NPC locations are expected to be added throughout the season, so we’ll update this article with any new characters.
Ariana Grande Fortnite location
A few months after Ariana Grande’s hit Rift Tour event, she has now arrived in Believer Beach’s pier as an NPC.
Her Punchcard Questline went live shortly after the 18.21 update, and you’ll need to repeatedly visit her to receive each Quest, such as revealing the command symbols. But expect Believer Beach to be busy, as several players are all trying to complete her Punchcard Quests for the Fortnitemares challenges.
Also, her new Spacefarer skin is rumored to be hitting the Item Shop at 8 PM ET on October 21.
As Fortnite Season 8 continues, you’ll be tasked with finding several of these NPCs to complete each Character Punchcard. So it’s well worth studying up and learning their locations to give you the edge in completing these.

Fortnite is set to welcome a brand new Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin and bundle into the game. Find out when and how you can get your hands on it and how much it is.
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 so far.

We’ll be sure to update this article with more information on the new Ariana Grande outfit as it becomes available.
How to buy the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle
The new outfit will probably come with a cosmetic bundle that you can also purchase from the Fortnite Item Shop. As with other bundles, you’ll likely get to use it to customize your character before a game.
It’s worth keeping in mind that Epic Games have yet to verify this information, and these are currently just leaks. So, take this information with a grain of salt until the developers announce something official.
How much is the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle?
Using data from the last Ariana Grande bundle, we would estimate that you’ll be able to get the skin on its own for about 1,500 V-Bucks, and the complete bundle for around 2,800 V-Bucks.
Again, we only pretty much know of the skin and bundle’s existence, and there is nothing official regarding it. We will be sure to update this once we know the official price of the items involved.
What’s in the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle?
Epic Games are pretty good at giving its players choice when it comes to buying skins. Based on the datamined pictures, we expect them to offer the Fortnite Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin separately and provide an entire bundle with a pickaxe, glider, and more.
