Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass leak reveals Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins

A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 leak appears to have revealed that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins will feature on the new Battle Pass.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is almost here, and a major leak has allegedly revealed some of the new crossover skins fans can expect, including Star Wars’ Darth Vader and Indiana Jones.

With Season 2 nearing its conclusion, attention is beginning to turn to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and what’s in store. One of the most exciting parts of any new season is seeing which new crossovers Epic has up its sleeve, after Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Wu-Tang Clan in Season 2.

Each new era comes with a new Battle Pass stuffed with plenty of skins to unlock, and Chapter 3 Season 3’s appear to have leaked ahead of time.

If the leak is to be believed, some beloved characters from classic films are set to finally make their debut in Fortnite.

The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda in Fortnite

In a May 25 tweet, respected Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR shared an image that seemed to suggest that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones are set to headline Chapter 3 Season 3.

The Battle Pass section pictured the iconic Star Wars villain alongside an original Fortnite skin, likely indicating that Vader will be the Level 100 unlock in the new season.

Indiana Jones, featuring the likeness of actor Harrison Ford, is also depicted on the “Coming Soon” tile. This could hint that the legendary archaeologist is the new secret skin, much like Marvel’s Prowler in Season 2.

The image came from 4chan, but the leaker claimed the chances of it being a fake mock-up were “extremely low.”

Rumors of Darth Vader coming to Fortnite as a skin have been swirling for some time, as plenty of other Star Wars characters like Rey, Kylo Ren, and The Mandalorian have all joined the battle royale in the past.

With the much-anticipated Obi-Wan series, which is set to see Hayden Christensen return as the disgraced Anakin Skywalker, releasing shortly before Season 3 gets underway, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Epic felt now was the right time.

Of course, this is all just speculation until the trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 drops and the Battle Pass is revealed.

  1. Head to Sanctuary on the Fortnite map
  2. Visit one of the three Loudspeaker locations
  3. Hold the interact button when the prompt to override the Loudspeaker appears

Will Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 have a live event finale?

According to data miners following the v20.40 update, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Data miners have discovered strings that appear to prove there will be a season-ending live event finale. Leaker FNBRintel has discovered a ton of strings for the event, which include an in-game countdown and a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

Another leaker, FortTory, has also said that there will be a pre-event lobby where “we can expect some animations and sequences” before the main event. However, they won’t say anything more for now.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Fortnite’s live events usually take place on the last day of the season, and a report from ShiinaBR claims that the Chapter 3, Season 2 event will begin on June 4, 2022.

According to this leak, the event will take place for the entirety of June 4, and Chapter 3, Season 3 will officially go live the very next day. Shiina claims that they first heard these dates a few days prior to this leak.

Fortnite Intel claimed in a tweet that once the event concludes, there will be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” Currently, it has not been confirmed exactly how long the downtime will last.

It will most likely end in the early hours of June 5, as that’s the time Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 is expected to launch. However, these are currently just leaks, so be sure to take this information with a grain of salt.
