Fortnite leaks: new zipline and trap cage on the way, Tomato Head's return, shrinking rifts and ALL season 5 Battle Pass challenges

Another Fortnite update and a new deluge of Fortnite leaks. It's a lot this time with a Fortnite Android exclusive skin on the way, ziplines and cage traps, a return for a certain Tomato Head, and Gamescom and PAX exclusive sprays to collect. 

On top of all that there's the entirety of seasons 5's Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges that, so far, have all been correct. So it looks like know what to expect for the rest of the season's challenges. And, there's the first whispers of a Fortnite season 6 tease as the rifts begin to shrink (remember, the asteroid craters from Season 4 started to disappear as Season 5 approached). 

There's a new Fortnite zipline coming

There's an interesting new gadget currently being pulled out of the data files in the shape of a Zipline. It's not clear entirely how this works yet. Asset names like 'move to location' suggest it might operate like a side to side, deathslide type thing: 

While parts of it appear in a folder called 'Grapple' which suggests a more up and down movement. 

Either way it's a consumable, so likely comes from chests and only has a limited number of uses. 

Tomato Head's back

A model for Tomato Head has recently been found in the files suggesting that, like Durrr Burger and the Noms sign, the rifts could be returning one of the things they took. Or not. The current file location and name of the asset have it as a 'statue' in Transylvania, which appears to be the code name for Haunted Hills. A new grave or monument maybe? 

Sound files suggest a Fortnite trap cage could be happening

So far we only have an audio file for this so no idea where it'll appear or how it'll work but it sounds... not good. Current theory is that it'll enable a way to place traps without a wall or ceiling, so just randomly on the ground like a spikey land mine. 

PAX and Gamescom exclusive sprays on the way

Gamecom is the first event to get a 'spray gift' running from August 21 - 25. If it works like the previous E3 one then it's a code you receive after playing the game at the event. There's also one on the way for PAX, which runs August 31 to September 3.

All the Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges for season 5 have leaked

A version of the Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges leak pretty much every week but unusually we now have what looks like all of season 5's challenges leaking. So far all the leaks have matched up, so bar substitutions or false challenges to hide season 6 stuff, this what we can expect in coming weeks. 

Obviously we'll find out as the weeks go on how accurate these are, and if Epic change anything in light of the leaks, but for now let's assume this is all legit.

Most of them are the usual - eliminations, open chests and so on - but there are some interesting options in there. Things like 'shoot jumping fish', or finding jigsaw pieces in the basement, which obviously involves things we haven't seen yet. 

The Fortnite rift might be shrinking on August 21

Multiple sources seem to uncovering mention of a 'rift shrink' in the event flag part of the code, so the bit that make things happen in the game. 

The current event flag is dated August 21, so in week 7, suggesting end of season changes might be starting around then. The big question then is what will Fortnite season 6 bring us? 

Leaked Fortnite skins include Aerobic Assassin, Overtaker and PANDA Team Leader

There's a ton of new skins on the way, all with back bling and gliders. That's the best round up above, with a closer look below:

Fortnite leaks suggest ATK skins are on the way

Fortnite ATKs

Fortnite ATKs are a real thing now thanks to the arrival of Fortnite Season 5, and although they're already pretty darn awesome - check out the llama hood ornament, and the Durrr Burger / Tomato Town furry dice for just two examples as to why - apparently they're about to get a lot better. According to two separate tweets, Epic is already testing ATK skins with a Llama Mesh. Oh, I am so in. 

Prepare your gullet for Durrr Burger and Shake consumables

According to another of the many, many Fortnite leaks, there are two new consumables in the works - Durrr Burgers and Durrr Shakes. Some say that they'll replace the current Slurp Juice and Chug Jug, but other sources suggest that they'll work in a similar way to the apples and mushrooms you find lying about in game at the moment. Either way, they look freaking adorable, and I can't wait to see my avatar chowing down on both of these little noms. 

Fortnite leaks confirm gifting will be a thing soon, with some caveats

Fortnite gifting option in the setting menu

You might have noticed a little toggle option in the settings menu in the Account tab, that read: "Can Receive Gifts From Others". It's automatically set to 'yes', but actually the mechanic of Fortnite gifting doesn't actually exist yet. Fortnite leaks suggest that you'll be able to buy skins, emotes and more in the Fortnite Item Shop and then send them to your friends as little presents. Info currently imply that it'll only be items on the store that day, and you won't simply be able to give away the skins you already own - this isn't Pokemon Trading Cards...

Technically, all we know from the Fortnite leaks so far is that it is a feature that's in the works:

Heck, even the official French Fortnite Twitter account has confirmed it, with the following Tweet translating to: "These will not be exchanges, but gifts offered directly from the shop. No dates yet".

Fortnite leaks describe a new Pool Floaty item or in-world object

Fortnite pool floaty

I love a llamacorn, and Fortnite seems to be getting more of them by the day, complete with derp eyes <3. According to the files, it'll work in a similar way to the tyre stacks currently in game, but you'll need to "pierce" it in order to catapult you into the air. I'm hoping that these are an item that you can hold to propel you across water - yes, I'm looking at you Loot Lake. 

Strangely enough, such an item not only exists in back bling form thanks to Pool Party, but it also features in actual floaty form in the official Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass trailer (skip to 0.21 if you don't believe me):
