Fortnite has gone through massive changes in the past few months and it seems as though they have had an endless amount of content to satisfy players. Most recently, the Marvel collab has brought Marvel-themed cosmetics, missions, and other changes to gameplay. These changes have even enticed Ninja to return to Fortnite after his break from the battle royale.
HYPEX, a known Fortnite leaker, found several new details, that although are small could add an interesting twist to Fortnite. Check out his Tweet here.
Here are some things that @intercelluar & i found until leaking is back to normal:
– Epic are working on a Slurp Bazooka
– There’s an unreleased “Fire Extinguisher” item
– We might get a “Snowman NPC” that grants you a quest,
it has conversations, can explode and/or spawn loot

In the Tweet, HYPEX lists three changes and all of which hold some sort of significance and should pique the interest of players.
The Slurp Bazooka could be a promising gun with a unique power besides being dealt extensive damage. Nevertheless, Fortnite has introduced heavy weapons before and they were received relatively well which could be promising for the “Slurp Bazooka.” The “Fire Extinguisher” item is the vaguer leak of the three and could mean a variety of things. It could be a cosmetic, a weapon, or an in-game tool. The final leak is the most interesting leak as it hints at a possible NPC.
The Non-Playable-Character is described as a “Snowman NPC” that when interacted with, can grant a quest, “can explode and/or spawn loot.” This leak has not been confirmed by Epic Games so the details could significantly change in the coming weeks but if it holds any truth, this could add a new way to get rarer loot in-game.
Fortnite is in the midst of its Halloween event but players can expect details on the winter/holiday update to release soon as Halloween is just around the corner.
