Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is now nearing its end, but how long does it have left, and when will Season 6 officially launch?

Fortnite divides its content up into Seasons, with Chapters dividing them up further. Once Fortnite reached the end of Season 10 in October 2019, the game moved onto Chapter 2. We’re now nearing the end of Chapter 2, Season 5, so players have set their sights on what Season 6 will have in store.

Fortnite Season 4 ended on December 2 following a massive battle between Fortnite players, Marvel heroes, and Galactus. The game was down for a few hours and then Season 5, titled ‘Zero Point,’ kicked off in style.

A plethora of pop-culture characters have come to the game in Season 5, such as Star Wars’ The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, Xenomorphs, and the Predator. But it’s time to start looking ahead and wonder what we can expect.

When does Fortnite Season 6 begin?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 will officially end on March 16, 2021 with Season 6 likely to follow directly after it.

Official Fortnite channels have confirmed that the Battle Pass will end on March 16, so it’s safe to assume that Season 6 will begin during the week beginning March 15.

Popular and reliable leaker HYPEX has also revealed that Season 6 won’t be delayed, as the update has been added to the staging servers on March 5.

What will be in Fortnite Season 6?

Fortnite data miners already have an idea of what Season 5’s Zero Crisis Finale Event will look like. In the 15.50 update files, Mang0e discovered NPCs will be “teleported to wacky places by the Zero Point,” and Fort Tory discovered that audio will be distorted as we reach the event.

Continuing the lore of Fortnite, it seems that Agent Jones has finally reached his breaking point and could be about go rogue in Fortnite. The most recent teaser shows clear signs of dissension between himself and the Imagined Order.

It’s likely Season 6 will feature significant map changes. We last saw Colossal Coliseum, Stealthy Stronghold, and the return of fan-favorite location Tilted Towers.

The theme for next season’s content is anyone’s guess, but data miners have become adept at deciphering Epic Games’ plans so we’re likely to have a strong idea before it officially launches.

There is also a plethora of other leaked content including:

Another recent finding indicates that other aspects of Fortnite could be set to merge with the battle royale game. One of the recent teasers has hinted that Save The World content is on its way in the form of a new shotgun and axe.

Neymar coming to Fortnite Season 6?

One of the biggest unofficial surprises for Season 6 of Fortnite appears to be world-famous soccer superstar Neymar.

The Brazilian sports icon is known for his love of Fortnite and responded to an official Tweet from the main Fortnite Twitter handle.

With a bit more digging, evidence has actually been found to support the idea that Neymar is set to feature in Season 6 in some way. In the teaser trailer from Epic Games, some images are included that match up to aspects of Neymar’s career.

Hypex managed to find images relating to Neymar that correspond to suspiciously similar stills inside the video. As we have said, there’s no word on what the mega tie-in could have in-store for players, but maybe it will be the start of an even bigger crossover for the game using real-life athletes.

As soon as we know more about Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6, we’ll be sure to update you.

Here’s how to find and launch Signal Flares for Fortnite Season 8’s Ariana Grande Fortnitemares Punchcard Quest to earn some XP and rewards.

Signal Fire in Fortnite

Ariana Grande has arrived in Fortnite as an NPC and for her Fortnitemares Punchcard Quests, you’ll need to launch Signal Flares. Here’s how you can get this done quickly.

Fortnite’s Halloween update has brought some new content to the Fortnitemares event. This includes some brand-new Punchcards that have brought Ariana Grande back as an NPC on Fortnite Island.

For one of her Quests, you’ll need to launch a few Signal Flares to contact other hunters. These can be found in different areas across the map, and you’ll need to visit them to complete the Quest.

This guide will go over all the locations that you can visit to get this done.

Fortnite Signal Flare locations

Fortnite Signal Flare Location

You can find Signal Flares in a total of 4 locations on Fortnite Island. They resemble large brightly colored fireworks with dynamite on the side, so they’re fairly hard to miss if you’re in their vicinity.

Here are all the Signal Flare locations in Fortnite:

  • Shattered Saucer
  • East of Primal Pond
  • South west of Dirty Docks
  • West of FN Radio

For this quest, you only need to visit three of these locations, so head over there and interact with the Signal Flares to launch them. This will help you get in contact with the hunters.

Fortnite Signal Flare

Once you’ve launched 3 Signal Flares, you’ll be rewarded with 30,000 XP and this Quest will be marked as complete. You can also complete other Ariana Grande Punchcard Quests for some more XP.

One of these tasks you with revealing the Command Symbol, and we’ve got an in-depth guide for that too. Completing more Punchard Quests will help you level up faster, so be sure to try it out.

However, you need to watch out for other players who might also be in the area to complete the Punchcard Quests before you do. Make sure you’ve got some solid weapons and gear to defend yourself.

Ariana Grande’s Spacefarer bundle sells for 2,500 V-Bucks, which is slightly cheaper than the 2,800 V-Bucks for the original Ariana Grande bundle.

The Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin comes with a transformation emote, changing the skin into the alien-themed Starfire Ariana Grande. Players can readily switch between the two styles by using the Just Keep Breathin’ Emote.

Of course, you can buy each item from the Spacefarer bundle, such as the Pickaxe and Backbling, separately.

Here’s each item from the bundle and their individual prices:

  • Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin, I.R.I.S Backbling, and Just Keep Breathin’ Emote – 2,000 V-Bucks
  • Spacefarer Lightscythe Pickaxe – 800 V-Bucks
  • I.R.I.S Daydream Glider – 1,200 V-Bucks
  • Spooky Smallz Backbling – 400 V-Bucks

Buying the bundle as a whole will save you 1,500 V-Bucks, so will be worth it if you’re a big Ariana Grande fan.

When will Naruto come to Fortnite? New skin release date

A Naruto skin is seemingly on its way to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about when it will arrive in the game.

Naruto in Fortnite

There’s wide speculation about the arrival of popular anime character Naruto as a new skin in Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about this, including the skin’s possible release date.

Fortnite has become known for its major crossovers with other franchises, as heroes like Gamora and Superman have joined other characters in the battle royale during Season 7.

More crossover skins were uncovered by data miners from a survey by Epic Games. While one of these was part of a hoax, there are still many other interesting ones that might be coming soon, including a Naruto skin.

Some of the crossover skins teased in the survey have arrived in the game, like Lebron James and Ariana Grande. According to Fortnite leaker Shiina, Epic wants Naruto to be included in Season 8.

Now, we seem to be one step closer to confirming the arrival of Naruto after Twitch streamer candywingx appeared to confirm the arrival of the skin.

The player recently retweeted a real-life meeting with Chief Creative Officer at Epic Games Donald Mustard, and it was hinted that they had been discussing the future of Fortnite.

If the anime protagonist arrives as part of the next Battle Pass in Fortnite Season 8, then we’ll likely see him added to the game on September 18, 2021. If the skin isn’t ready by then, it may appear in the Item Store at a later date.

We might also see the arrival of other characters from the Naruto universe, like Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi.

If Naruto arrives in Fortnite, the player base may significantly increase, since the anime has a huge fandom that’s spread out across the globe. It may even open the door to other anime crossovers like Dragon Ball.

Season 6 of the influential battle royale game also featured a few generic anime skins, but this would be a huge step up. Hopefully, Epic Games will give us some confirmation on the Naruto skin’s arrival.
