Just a week after the last major update, Epic Games have dropped the new 15.21 Update for Fortnite, bringing the terrifying Predator to PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.

2021 is in full swing, and after a break over the festive season, Epic are back at work dropping patches for the always-popular battle royale title. After the release of the 15.20 update last week, the developers have dropped a new one on Wednesday, January 20.

While the 15.21 patch isn’t a major update, that doesn’t mean it won’t have a profound effect on the game and its meta.

Last week, a strange spaceship was discovered in the trees and Stealthy Stronghold, and it appears the alien pilot who flies this ship has finally arrived on the island, with Predator set to become the latest hunter in Fortnite Season 5.

Predator joins Fortnite Season 5

After days of speculation, Predator has finally joined the ragtag group of bounty hunters who have roamed around the Fortnite island throughout Season 5. The news won’t come as too much of a major surprise, as the alien’s ship has been sitting in Stealthy Stronghold all week, although it wasn’t clear how it would factor into Season 5.

Now, we finally know that Predator will not only be the secret skin in Fortnite’s Season 5 Battle Pass, but that he will join the group of Hunters who have been roaming the map, protecting the island’s reality after the Zero Point event.

Predator also brings his own Mythic Weapon, his Claws, which act like a pickaxe but can do some serious damage too. According to leaks, the Claws deal 100 environmental damage, and deal 20 damage per hit to enemies with their first two strikes, while a third will deal 30.

Predator’s Cloaking Device will also be available, allowing players to go invisible for a short time. This effect will be removed when the user swaps weapons or starts to swim.

Fortnite 15.21 Bug Fixes

Of course, no Fortnite update would be complete without the developers addressing some issues and glitches that have been affecting the game.

This week, Epic are looking at problems across all Fortnite modes, and according to the game’s official Trello board, these are the bugs we can expect to see fixed following this patch. We’ll be sure to update this as the developers confirm them.

Fortnite Chapter 3 is well underway, and there is a ton of fun content to enjoy such as the Klombo Dinosaurs and Hawkeye outfits. However, there are also a few issues that the devs are attempting to fix.

Fortnite updates such as the recent 19.10 patch tend to bring a wide variety of bug fixes and changes to the game. However, the 3.44 patch makes a relatively minor change to the battle royale title.

The latest update only has a single patch note as it focuses on fixing one issue within the game’s Creative Mode. While most players won’t notice the difference, the fix is still greatly appreciated.

Support-A-Creator UI in Fortnite

There aren’t a lot of exciting changes in the 3.44 update patch as compared to the 19.10 update that brought back the fan-favorite Tilted Towers. However, Epic Games did fix one problem:

  • Fixed the issue with the Support-A-Creator UI missing from the pre-game lobby of some Creative islands.

The Support-A-Creator UI was missing from pre-game lobbies on a few Creative Islands. Now, the latest update has fixed this issue and players will be able to support their favorite content creators again.

This fix has gone live on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as PC, and Android. The developers reassured players that they’ll inform them when the update arrives on the Nintendo Switch version.

Hopefully, we’ll see a major update patch released in the new future. It could bring a plethora of exciting new content to the battle royale, including the highly-anticipated Green Goblin outfit and the return of lightsabers.

New Fortnite leak claims lightsabers could return in Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover

Some new Fortnite leaks have revealed that lightsabers might be returning as part of a Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover.

Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to bring lightsabers back to the battle royale as part of a new Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover.

Fortnite has become known for its major collaborations with other popular franchises. Epic Games have brought a ton of crossover content from the Star Wars universe to the battle royale.

The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass, and Boba Fett is currently an unlockable skin. Now, some leaks suggest that Epic Games are bringing back lightsabers as part of a Star Wars Obi-Wan collaboration.

According to notable Fortnite leaker ‘FNAssist,’ Epic Games re-added Star Wars lightsaber files in the v19.10 update. This means that they could be planning to bring them back to the game in the near future.

Lightsabers are some of the most iconic weapons in cinema history, and they were available as Mythic melee weapons during Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2. There were four differently-colored versions of them in the game.

Now, players are speculating that the weapon might be included in a collaboration with the upcoming ‘Obi-Wan’ Disney+ Star Wars series. We might also see the titular character arrive as a new skin.

The leaks state that the 19.10 update added lightsaber animations along with some melee combat mechanics, gameplay abilities, and VFX. This could mean that the weapon will make its return in the game.

Alternatively, they could be working on a new melee weapon and are basing it off the animation and abilities of the lightsaber. However, this information has yet to be verified by the developers themselves.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt until Epic Games officially announce something. We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this.
