A brand new leak has revealed details about a few Exotic Weapons that Epic Games might add to Fortnite soon.

There are loads of amazing new weapons in Fortnite Season 5, and now a leaker has revealed some new brand new Exotic weapons that might be added to the game soon; the Run Gun SMG and the Freeze AR, along with another Exotic.

You have a great variety of weapons to try out in Fortnite, and Season 5 introduced the brand-new Exotic variants. These weapons are extremely rare, so this makes them very costly. It’s worth it to own them since they’re more powerful than regular guns.

A few exotic weapons were leaked recently, such as SMGs and ARs, but we weren’t given much information about them. Now a new leak has finally given us a closer look at what they’re capable of, and also revealed a brand new gun.

New weapons might be coming to Fortnite

This information came from the reliable Fortnite leaker known as ‘HYPEX‘ in a Twitter post on December 29. The leaker stated that two new Exotic weapons could be coming to the Battle Royale soon.

The first weapon mentioned is the Run Gun SMG. This is one of the guns that was leaked a few weeks back, and now we know that it boosts your walking and running speed. The leaker mentions that they have footage of the ability, and then posted two clips showcasing it.

The Run Gun seems to be modeled after the Rapid Fire SMG, which was first introduced during Season 2, but has since been vaulted. At the moment, this leaked weapon remains unfinished.

The next leaked weapon is the Freeze AR which has the ability to “gives chiller trap effect to other players.” The Chiller is a trap that puts players at a disadvantage by adding ice blocks to their feet, causing them to slip and slide around uncontrollably.

HYPEX ended the leak by talking about a weapon called the Slurp Bazooka. We don’t know anything about this gun other than the fact that it has been scrapped. However, we can piece together its potential ability by looking at the name.

This weapon probably worked a lot like the Bandage Bazooka. While that weapon fires bandages, you could use the Slurp Bazooka to shoot Slurp Juices at your teammates and heal them. At the moment, we only have footage of the Run Gun SMG.

We’re not sure at this point why these weapons are not already in the game. Some of them might be planned for a future update, while others might be scrapped ideas that would never make it into the final product.

Exotic Weapons are already something players fiercely compete against each other to own, and these leaked ones sound like they’d be fun to use. Hopefully we’ll see them added soon, and if we do then we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite player discovers genius tricks for off-road tires

A clever Fortnite YouTuber has discovered some genius tricks you can pull off with Season 6’s new tires, and they don’t involve vehicles.

Fortnite off-road tire tricks

A clever Fortnite player has found some genius ways to use Fortnite’s new tires, and not in ways you might expect.

A major part of Fortnite is discovering clever ways you can use your builds, the environment, items, and weapons to get the upper hand on your opponent. Chonkers off-road tires arrived with the 16.20 update, and while they are designed for modding vehicles, the community has already discovered their other uses.

Fortnite YouTuber Ryuzanami has demonstrated several tricks you can pull off with the tires, and, surprisingly, none of them involve vehicles.

As Fortnite players have become more advanced at the building mechanics of the game, taking and getting through other players’ walls has become one of the most important aspects of the game. Ryuzanami showed that you can use the tires to phase through walls 100% of the time. If you throw the tire into the corner, push up against the wall, and break it, you are guaranteed to get through.

With the storm ever closing in, you can also use these tires to boost your movement speed. As you jump off the tire, you can continue to pick them up, repeating the process until you’re safe from the storm. Or, mid-fight, you can throw the tires on the ground below you and use them to take height from your opponents.

Once you have this height, you can also use the tires to avoid fall damage. Throw the tires on the floor below you then build a floor above, jump on top of the tires, then they will remain below your feet and break your fall. Just don’t pick up the tires on the way down or you’ll fall to your death.

Also, using their bouncy nature, you can throw them at opponents forcing them to take fall damage. However, this is extremely situational and is more fun than a competitive strategy.

With these tips in mind, keeping one of your inventory slots free for tires can provide you with a plethora of opportunities to get the upper hand in build fights.

Fortnite Joneses NPCs

Raz’s Spire Quests ask you to talk to five Joneses around the Fortnite map, so here are the locations of each Jonesy NPC in Season 6.

Fortnite’s 16.20 update finally brought vehicle mods and new bows to wield, as well as a new set of Spire Quests to earn you a ton of XP and a purple variant for Battle Pass skin, Raz. These quests, which advance Fortnite’s story, are completed in stages, so once you’ll need to do them in order.

Players have become stuck trying to talk to five Joneses near the end of the quests, so we’ve got all of their locations to help you complete them.

Where to find the Joneses for Fortnite Spire Quest

Fortnite Season 6 Jonesy locations

As Fortnite’s story has progressed, several different versions of Jonesy have arrived. These can all be found on the island, and you need to talk to them to complete Season 6’s Spire Quests.

Here are the locations of each Jonesy on the Fortnite Season 6 island.

  • Castaway Jonesy: Desert island northeast of Steamy Stacks
  • Bunker Jonesy: Found in multiple locations on the map, e.g Lighthouse Building to the northwest of Stealthy Stronghold
  • Grill Sergeant: At the Durr Burger Food Truck east of Stealthy Stronghold
  • Wreck Raider: North end of Coral Castle
  • Suntan Specialist: Found on the beach at Sweaty Sands
  • Rex: In the building east of The Spire
  • Sash Sergeant: Playpark in Weeping Woods
  • Cabbie: Building in the south-end of Lazy Lake
  • Slurp Jonesy: Inside main factory at Slurpy Swamp

You only need to find five of the Joneses around the map, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find all five in one match of Battle Royale or Team Rumble. Plan a route depending on the Battle Bus’s line and you’ll be able to complete this challenge in only a few matches.

Where to find and duel Jonesy the First

Fortnite Jonesy the First

After you’ve found the five Joneses around the Season 6 island, you’ll be tasked with finding and dueling Jonesy the First. Luckily, he’s always in the same location. You can find him in the house on the northwest corner of Pleasant Park.

Simply talk to him and select the duel option to begin the fight. We recommend gathering some weapons, shields, and materials before taking him on. He shouldn’t be difficult to defeat, but you could find yourself struggling if you’re unprepared.


Finding the Joneses and dueling the OG isn’t particularly difficult, but is time-consuming. However, with this guide, you should complete the spire quests in no time. And be sure to check out the Week 5 Quests for some extra XP.

Batman skins in Fortnite Season 6

The Batman x Fortnite comic book run has tied in the DC Universe with the battle royale, and players can get their hands on some exclusive DC-themed skins, including Batman himself.

Epic Games have introduced various Fortnite crossovers with notable franchises like TerminatorStreet Fighter & Star Wars. Now, DC has entered the arena with its own set of popular characters like Batman.

The two franchises are combining together in the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic book crossover. Purchasing each book in the series will grant you special items like character skins. Here’s how you can get them for yourself.

How to unlock Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit

Rebirth Harley Quinn is the first DC outfit that will become available to you after purchasing the Batman/Fortnite comic. We’ve known about this outfit ever since it was leaked by Fortnite data miners a while back.

As you can gather from the name, this outfit is based on Harley’s appearance during thee DC Rebirth run in the comics. She wears a red and black jacket, top and shorts, alongside red and blue pigtails.

Even if you decide not to pick up the comic book issue for yourself, you’ll still be able to get your hands on this skin when it becomes available in the Fortnite Item Shop in June 2021.

Armored Batman Zero Outfit

The Armored Zero Outfit for Batman can be seen in issue 2 of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic. If you want this item, then you’ll have to purchase all six issues of the crossover book, since that’s the only means of acquiring it.

While we currently don’t know what the in-game model of the suit looks like, you can take a look at its art in the comic, and fans who collect all six issues will get to see it in the coming months. This implies that we might not see this outfit in the Item Shop.

Deathstroke Outfit in Fortnite (Rumor)

A few leaks emerged recently, claiming that Epic Games are set on bringing another major DC Comics character to The Island in the form of the supervillain Deathstroke. He might become available to unlock as part of a future issue of the comic.

This information came from the same data miner that previously leaked the Harley Quinn skin, and they confirmed that Deathstroke is “100% becoming a skin in Season 6,” so we should expect to see him arrive soon.

While this seems likely, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just a rumor, so take it with a grain of salt. Hopefully, Epic will confirm his arrival in the Fortnite through an official announcement soon. If they do, we’ll be sure to update this article.
