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.

How to get exclusive Batman skins in Fortnite with DC Comics

Exclusive Batman universe themed skins may appear soon in Fortnite according to popular dataminer ShiinaBR.

Batman X Fortnite Season 5

Exclusive Batman universe-themed skins will be available in Fortnite in the future according to popular leakers.

Fortnite has seen a rush of crossovers for the past few months, with notable franchises like Terminator, Street Fighter & Star Wars entering the arena with their universes characters.

Now it appears that an exclusive Batman X Zero Point promo is coming soon to fans of Fortnite, and according to popular Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR, it will drop on April 20, 2021.

According to Shiina, there will be a new Rebirth Harley Quinn skin variant added to the game, which will be exclusive to those who purchase a print edition of the Zero Point comic book.

This skin and comic will surely become a collectible in due time, so be sure to snag a comic book as soon as you can.

Additionally, it also seems Shiina believes a Batman Point Armored skin is in the works as well to ship in April. Currently, it’s unknown on how exactly we’ll be able to obtain this skin, but we’re willing to bet it will most likely appear in the item shop.

This partnership between Epic Games and DC looks like its going quite well, especially considering this will be the second time we see the partnership in full effect after the Batman event in September of 2019.

Perhaps we will see more Zero Point comic books in the future, and maybe all the physical copies of those comic books will all include unique skins for players to obtain in-game.

Regardless of where the future takes this partnership between DC and Epic Games, we’re excited nonetheless to see the next chapter. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.

How to get Fortnite’s Alien skins in Season 5

You can get yourself some neat Ripley and Xenomorph skins, along with other Alien-themed cosmetics in Fortnite Season 5.

Aliens in Fortnite

The legendary Alien movie franchise is the latest to team up with Epic Games for a crossover in Fortnite Season 5. Here’s how you can get your hands on the brand new Ellen Ripley and Xenomorph skins.

Fortnite Season 5 has introduced numerous crossovers with other franchises, as we’ve seen the arrival of Master ChiefThe Terminator, and The Flash, among others. Now, Epic Games have brought in some new cosmetics from the Alien franchise.

The iconic sci-fi heroine Ellen Ripley has shown up on Fortnite Island alongside her nemesis, the Xenomorph. There is also a cute Chestburster emote that comes with these skins, and here’s how you can get this bundle for yourself.

Certain Fortnite cosmetics sets become available immediately through the Battle Pass, while others have you complete a few challenges or quests first. Luckily, this Alien bundle requires far less effort for you to get it.

You can acquire the entire Space Gear Bundle from the Item Shop for a limited time. This cosmetics set consists of the following items:

  • Ellen Ripley Skin
  • Xenomorph Skin
  • Xenomorph Tail Back Bling
  • Xeno Menace (Built-in Emote)
  • Nostromo Crew Outfit
  • Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier
  • P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe
  • Cheyenne Dropship Glider
  • Burst Case Scenario Emote

The developers have done a great job of emulating the aesthetic of the 1979 classic with these items. You can choose to either terrify your opponents as the Xenomorph, or show how hard-hearted you can be as the iconic Ellen Ripley.

Epic Games confirmed in a official blog post that these cosmetic items are available from Thursday, February 25 onwards, but they haven’t elaborated on when the bundle will disappear from the in-game store.

Cosmetic bundles always come and go in Fortnite’s Item Shop, so we don’t expect these skins to stick around there for long. Which is why you should get your hands on the Alien set before it disappears.

With a few weeks of Fortnite Season 5 still left, we’re left wondering what other crossovers we can expect, with Family Guy’s Peter Griffin even being rumored to join the battle royale.

Fortnite’s February 24 update has shuffled the location of the The Storm Scout Sniper exotic weapon. Here’s where you’ll find it.

Mave and Storm Scout in Fortnite

Epic Games have changed the location of the The Storm Scout Exotic sniper in Fortnite’s February 24 update. Here’s where you can find this powerful weapon on the map now.

The Storm Scout is currently one of the most highly sought after weapons in Fortnite due to the benefits it grants to the user. Aside from having an impressive damage output, it will also show you where the storm will form beforehand.

Epic Games came out with a new update for Season 5 on February 24, which has shuffled the locations of some of the Exotic weapons, including this sniper rifle. It’s now available on a completely different part of the map, and we’ll help you find it.

Mave and Storm Scout sniper rifle location

Initially, you were able to purchase the Storm Scout sniper rifle by giving 1,225 gold bars to Lexa at Hunter’s Haven, Now, you’ll have to make your way a little bit further east in order to acquire this Exotic weapon.

After the update, the sniper rifle came under the possession of an NPC named Mave, who you can find just east of Catty Corner. In order to make things a bit easier, you can take a look at her location on the map below:

Mave and Storm Scout sniper rifle location

Here’s what you need to do in order to get the Storm Scout Exotic sniper rifle in Fortnite:

  1. After landing in the map, make your way towards the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner
  2. Go interact with Mave, who will be hanging out by the cliffside.
  3. Select the Storm Scout sniper option and then purchase it

Once you’re done with this interaction, closing the menu will cause the weapon to automatically show up in your inventory. If you want to get your hands on it then you’ll have to pay 500 Gold Bars to Mave, which isn’t a lot when you consider that it initially costed 1,225.

Still, you should try saving up a bit before you make this purchase. You can earn more Gold Bars for yourself by completing bounties or challenges set by NPCs across Fortnite Island.

That covers everything you need to know about finding the Storm Scout Exotic sniper rifle after the February 24 update. Just follow the instructions we gave you, and you’ll face no problems in doing so.

Keep in mind that Epic Games might shuffle the locations once again for this, along with the other Exotic weapons. If that happens, we’ll be sure to let you know where to look!

With Fortnite Season 6 just around the corner, we’ll keep checking for any more updates by Epic Games to the game’s Exotic Weapons.
