Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 is very nearly over, which means one thing; speculation about what is coming next. Players are delving deep into the game’s code and even looking at random clusters of shrubs on the map in an attempt to predict what’s coming up. Often, this is baseless and kind of irrelevant clutching at straws. For every 50 incorrect or completely fictional leaks though, there is one accurate one. The Fortnite chapter 2 Season 2 leaks kicking around at the moment range from the plausible and pretty likely, to bizarre interpretations of hints.
From leaked skins and some language that Epic has used, there are some clear indications of where things are headed. While Chapter 2 brought a lot of change to the game, it is only just migrating to a new physics engine. Initially, players weren’t sure what impact this would have on the game itself. However, some Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 leaks might be giving a few hints about what can be expected now. It appears that the engine change is going to enable a little more change in the game than just optimization.
The current leaks from the game give us some hints at what the next exciting additions to Fortnite are going to be. This is a round-up of the most credible so far, those that are likely to come to something. There’s also a couple that are probably just wild mad guesses because they’re fun too.
That’s it. That’s the whole leak. This is a pretty vague and uninteresting Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 on the surface, but it might be quite a hint towards the theme of the Battle Pass. This is what has been found in the game so far.
That image is of a leaked skin, Oro. This was found in the files back in January but is yet to make an appearance, making a place in the season 2 Battle Pass the most likely home for it. This is a pretty cool skin, but it fits with more found in the game. This would be a great addition to the Battle Pass, which always have cool skins. and it might even be one of the last skins in the Battle Pass since it is made out of solid gold.
That isn’t the only thing about this theme. Solid gold props have also been found. These match up with random bits of décor. According to dataminers, this gold will spread from the Eyeland in the center of the map. It has been speculated that this will spread outwards, turning more of the map solid gold as it progresses.
This points towards a theme, but potentially something bigger. If random elements are being turned to gold, it’s possible this is a material. If gold makes a permanent addition to the material roster, that would make a big difference to the balance of the game. You would then have wood, brick, metal, and gold.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Map Leaks
While the gold Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Leak has the most substantial evidence behind it so far, there are more additions to the game that may have been found. These are some of the biggest ones discussed so far.
The new physics engine will allow buildings in Fortnite to crumble as an actual building does when destroyed, rather than just vanishing. This is an interesting change that would make Fortnite feel pretty different. The possibilities of how to interact with rubble and shattering buildings that players are occupying could really change the game. If combined with a new material, this would mean a whole new balance for building and gathering resources. This isn’t certain, but it would be an exciting change.
This one is kind of grasping at straws. A player has noticed that an area in the game quite clearly spells out the word Noah. Would this be an indication of a flood? Some think so. Although, this is more likely to be an Easter egg than a hint for Chapter 2 Season 2. It is entirely possible that an Epic employee named Noah shoved this in, rather than it being a hint.
Rapid Fire SMG
This is the most substantial Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 leak so far. A Rapid Fire SMG has been found in the game’s files and it appears to be a new addition coming to the game in the new season. Some players are speculating that this weapon will be close to the Machine pistol seen in the game’s early days. However, it could be something new entirely.
The beginning of a new season is an exciting time. While many of these Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 leaks seem credible, we don’t have long to wait to find out which ones were real.
