Mysterious Storm Flip item revealed for Fortnite Battle Royale

Published

on

A new Storm Flip item has appeared in the Fortnite Battle Royale news feed ahead of the soon-to-be-released v9.20 update.

Epic Games have, for the longest time, used their in-game news feed to reveal new additions to the battle royale ahead of the update that will bring it to players. The previously leaked Burst SMG was a part of the May 28 feed, before being released on May 29 in the v9.10 content update.

In their weekly update of the news, Epic have now revealed a mysterious new item that is expected to release in the upcoming v9.20 update.

The Burst SMG was a part of the v9.10 update and had a major role in the news feed.

The Storm Flip item appeared on the in-game news feed on June 3, alongside an advertisement for a new set of skins in the Item Shop and a warning about account scams.

The item was showcased as a small potion-like bottle with a lightning bolt engraved through the middle and sparks appearing at the top. “Unleash the storm or tame it. The choice is yours!” reads the description, leaving fans with a small hint about the item’s ability.

A full look at the June 3 Fortnite news feed.

However, data miners have not yet gone to work on this week’s update, so it’s unknown just what the item is set to do. Considering the “Unleash the storm or tame it” description, some players have already speculated that the item might just work like stink bombs – being thrown at players to cause storm damage, even if they’re inside the safe zone.

Another popular theory is that players will be able to consume the item like a shield and become immune to storm damage for a set amount of time. Yet, that is purely speculation thanks to the lack of information given about the item outside out of its appearance on the in-game news feed.

The v9.20 update is expected to go live on Wednesday, June 5 and it remains to be seen if Epic drops the new item as a major part of the patch.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
