New Fortnite leak shows upcoming Exotic SMG and AR

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.

How to cancel your Fortnite Crew subscription

Canceling Fortnite’s subscription service is nice and simple. So if you want to know how to leave Fortnite Crew, follow this guide.

Fortnite Crew

If you want to cancel your subscription to Fortnite Crew for any reason, Epic Games have made it incredibly easy to do.

Fortnite Crew is a monthly subscription service for Fortnite. It offers each season’s Battle Pass, exclusive cosmetics, and 1,000 V-Bucks to your balance each month.

January gave subscribers a Green Arrow skin and on February 1, Fortnite Crew members will receive the new Vi skin, along with a back bling, pickaxe, wrap, and loading screen.

Vi Fortnite Crew cosmetics

If you regularly purchase cosmetics from the Item Shop and each season’s Battle Pass, the Fortnite Crew is a great deal. However, it costs $11.99 USD a month, so for many, it won’t be worth it.

If you don’t feel like you’re getting your money’s worth or want to cancel for any other reason, then follow this simple guide.

How to leave Fortnite Crew

Usually, when trying to get a refund or leave a subscription service, you have to jump through several hoops to do it. Whether that’s navigating through five different pages on a website or giving them a reason, it feels like they’re trying to put you off doing it.

Thankfully, Fortnite has made it as simple as possible to leave Fortnite Crew as you can do it right inside the game. Another excellent part of this deal is that you get to keep everything you’ve paid for so far.

Leaving Fortnite Crew screen

Here’s how to leave Fortnite Crew:

  • Open Fortnite
  • Go to the Item Shop tab
  • Navigate to the ‘Crew’ section
  • Click ‘Cancellation Info’
  • Select ‘Leave Fortnite Crew’

It’s as simple as that! You will no longer be paying for Fortnite Crew. Everything you have collected through your subscription will still be there, and you can always join back up if you fancy it.

If at any point you want to re-join Fortnite Crew, simply go to the Item Shop and sign back up.

New Drift Crew skin teased in Fortnite

The official Fortnite Twitter account changed its avatar, and threw in a few cryptic teasers for the ‘Fox Clan’ before deleting these new posts just a few hours later. These tweets hinted at a new Crew skin for Drift.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is set to end on March 15, 2021, and it has brought a ton of exciting crossovers with franchises such as Predator, and Halo. Now, players are wondering what Epic Games will introduce in the next big update.

On January 24, the battle royale’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out a couple of teasers that let us know what might see in the future. These tweets were deleted after a few hours, but this has led to mass speculation among fans.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak

New Fortnite Drift Crew skins teased

Both tweets referenced a character named Drift, who was a character introduced in Fortnite Chapter 1, Season 5. The first post was the beginning of a scan, and it included the cryptic message: “Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?”

The second tweet consisted of an ominous warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” We haven’t seen the Fox Clan in Fortnite before, but this seems to tie in with the account’s new avatar.

Reliable Fortnite data miner HYPEX tweeted that the new teasers are related to a new Fortnite Crew skin for Drift, which seem to be a gender-bent version of the character. They then confirmed the skin will be part of the Fortnite Crew subscription in February.

If you have this monthly subscription model, you can get the Battle Pass along with 1,000 V-bucks when the new Season goes live. HYPEX confirmed that the new Drift skin will be part of an upcoming Crew Pack.

The official Fortnite account then posted a few more tweets and then backtracked by deleting all of the posts in which they teasing this new content. They even changed the account’s avatar back to its previous image.

Now, this could mean that the teasers were part of a grander scheme that Epic Games have yet to fully reveal, or maybe they deleted the teasers because they accidentally revealed these plans earlier than they had initially planned.

So far, we haven’t gotten any new information from Epic Games about what this is all building up to. HYPEX and other data miners have also not posted any additional information at the time of writing.

Drift’s original kitsune appearance and skins made him a fan-favorite during his time in the battle royale, so Epic Games releasing a new skin for him is certainly intriguing. Hopefully, these rumors will bear fruit, and we’ll get learn more about this soon.
