The leakers were busy again and have published information about new items, which will probably come to Fortnite soon. What they are and what they can do? You can find out here.
Leaks for new Fortnite items are in circulation and it seems that at least one item is related to Iron Man. The information comes from the well-known Fortnite leaker HYPEX and consists of a number of sound effects and pictures. It seems that the new items will be some kind of a jetpack and a fire extinguisher, possibly for use in the battle against Galactus, which has been teased for the end of this season.
Jetpacks have appeared in Fortnite before, so it won't be a surprise if a new version of the item appears at the end of this season. Since Iron Man is one of several Marvel characters that joined the game in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4, the item might be related to him. In fact, the leaked item is not exactly a fire extinguisher, but most probably something to put out fire.
Iron Man Jetpack
The newly discovered sound effects can be heard in the video in the tweet embedded below. They were added after the last update of the game and include the switching on and off of the jetpack, a fuel warning, and the thrust.
As already written, the Jetpack has been in the game many times and could now come back to Fortnite with some optical and technical changes.
HYPEX found a picture of a fire extinguisher in the files. The description of this item just says "extinguish the fire". So we don't get any further information here about what the fire extinguisher could be used for.
Although there are now items like the fireflies or gas canisters that cause a fire, you would probably rather remove yourself from a burning area than use an inventory slot to put out a fire if necessary.
In addition to Iron Man, the current Fortnite Season features Marvel characters like Thor, Groot and Mystique. This is not the first time Marvel content has appeared in the game, but it is the first time that the characters play a significant role in the narrative of a season. And according to the Creative Director of Epic Games, the Marvel crossover is far from over.
We just have to wait and see if we get new information about this item, but we will keep you informed on EarlyGame.
