Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4: News and Leaks

You know the Fortnite data miners. They are constantly digging into the codes and pulling out one leak after another. And we are here to collect them for you.

Fortnite: End of Season Live Event

So far we don't know if there will be a live event for the Season 3 finale. However, the odds are pretty high.

Since we didn't have a live event at the end of Season 1 or Season 2, there are still a lot of open questions in the story. Also, since it was leaked thatSeason 4 will be the last season of Chapter 4, the topic of Chapter 5 must be slowly being prepared. In addition, some leaks indicate it.

If you've been following the story in Fortnite for a bit, you've probably done a secret mission or two where you have to bring Prisms to Trace. Once you've done that, it will tell you that they belong to the machine located on top of the ruin. Once you bring him the last prism, he says the following words:

You found it! This is the last kinetic prism we need. We've been working with Dr. Slone to get him into the device. If her theory is correct, things are about to get really interesting.

The apparatus is a telescope which meanwhileobserve an astral map in the stars and go through a total of 6 different stages. The last stage will subsequently be a blood moon solar eclipse in the sky. Leaker iFireMonkey has already discovered a file containing a "Crack Door" and a "Tear in the Sky", indicating that something bad will happen while players are gazing at the stars.

Fortnite Season 4 Theme Trailer

The new season will have something to do with a blood moon. A Fortnite creator has received a mysterious blood moon image in the mail that is related to the release of Chapter 4 Season 4. The image came with a note that read, "Thank you for the addition to my collection." It was signed by Kouji Datura, and "datura" is a flower that is commonly known as the moon flower.

Also, according to some audio logs from Doctor Slone available in the game, the glyphs on the island indicate that an eclipse will soon occur. This eclipse could be a big part of the next season of Fortnite.

We still don't know exactly how the blood moon eclipse will tie into the new season. However, Epic Games is also gradually releasing new trailers that hint at a spy theme. They have already changed their profile picture and header on Twitter and posted infrared images marked by red laser beams.

On one of the pictures they write the following words:

Cameras, guards, vaults, and the best equipment in the business. You are inside?

Cameras, guards, vaults, and the best team in the business.

return of the helicopters

According to Hypex, Epic Games has updated the Fortnite helicopters. You will gain a grenade launcher that fires every 2 seconds, dealing 35 damage to players and 450 damage to structures.

With that, it is very likely that they will return in Chapter 4 Season 4.

first person mode

According to a tweet from our favorite Fortnite leaker HYPEX, who has always been a trusted source of Fortnite leaks and news in the past, Epic Games has started developinga first-person camera mode.


The same source who contacted@HYPEX& me about all the other real leaks also told us about that one!

And now more files have been found that clearly indicate a first-person view for the Chapter 4 map. However, the feature likely won't be implemented until Chapter 5.

weapon mods

A while ago it was leaked that Epic Games was working on weapon mods. Unfortunately, they have not yet appeared in the game. HYPEX speculates that Epic is still working on finding the perfect way for players to use them, though their related tweet has since been deleted. Who knows, maybe the weapon mods will eventually be implemented in Season 4 anyway.

flying mounts

A slightly older tweet from HYPEX also indicates that Epic is working on "rideable flying animals" for Fortnite. Apparently, players will be able to boost the animal for more speed and fly at "rest". Rest probably means that the mount could float in the air to allow players to shoot more accurately or throw objects. Previously, An item that looked like a saddle was leaked in Fortnite, presumably this item could be related to flying mounts.

However, we assume that flying mounts will only be added to the game in a later season.

Chapter 4 Season 4 of Fortnite: Map and new POIs

With Chapter 4 Season 4 we won't be getting a completely new map this time, but as always there will be some changes to the island.

new biomes

Since a new biome has been added in every season of Chapter 4 so far, we assume this will happen in the final season of Chapter 4 as well. However, this is pure speculation so far. Epic may add another desert biome to the map.


A new location called "Relentless Retreat" has already been leaked. The teaser came with the following words:

"I'm assembling a team, and a mutual friend says you'd be perfect for this job. Can you share the information with your group?"


"I'm putting together a team, and a friend we have in common says you'd be perfect for this job. Can you share the information with your group?

It seems that this place is a new mansion and it is the players' job to rob it.

Chapter 4 Season 4 of Fortnite: Filtered Skin of the Battle Pass

So far, only one Season 4 Battle Pass skin has been leaked, but it's not exactly recognizable. However, players suspect that it is this survey skin:

People are speculating that the skin in the teaser is this survey

— iFireMonkey (@iFireMonkey)August 21, 2023

Epic often send out skin surveys to players,of which usually 1-2 skins appear in the Battle Pass each season.

In addition, the players suspect that in the next season,One Piece could finally be coming to Fortnite.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 Battle Pass: New weapons and items

What would a new season be without new weapons and items? Until now, there has never been a season where not a single new weapon has been added. It's also possible that some old fan favorites will be pulled out of the trunk. So far, these mythical weapons have been leaked for Season 4:

  • TNTina's Ka-Boom Arc
  • SMG Stinger de Gunnar
  • AR MK-Seven de The Foundation
  • Zyg and Choppy's Ray Gun
  • Overloaded Pulse Rifle
  • Havoc Shotgun

And that's it for now with the leaks.

And that was it for now with the leaks. What do you want for Chapter 4 Season 4? Please let us know! We'll update this article as soon as there's more news, so don't forget to check back often!
