Over on Twitter @TwoEpicBuddies have discovered another amazing leak: Players will apparently be able to launch the rocket in the lair at 6pm CET (1pm ET).
What does this mean? Does this do anything in the game? Does it just start the new season? We will find out!
Previously removed because it was “too powerful”
June 16, 2018
Our favorite dataminers @FNBRLeaks are back with an excellent Fortnite Leak:
The Guided Missile is returning.
It was previously available but was removed shortly thereafter because it was deemed “too powerful” by many players.
The leak (as seen above) suggests the guided missile will be introduced as a “backpack item” as opposed to a regular weapon.
Fortnite Backpack Items are not the same as back blings (which are purely cosmetic) but rather in-game items that can be found in loot chests – similar to the jetpack and the briefly available Eye of the Storm tracker.
We are definitely excited to see the Guided Missile Launcher return to Fortnite Battle Royal, since it was heaps of fun last time.
See where the storm is going

Bobby BoJanglles, a popular YouTuber, has uncovered a new backpack that was released early by accident: the Eye of the Storm Tracker.
It takes up a whole inventory slot, but when you have it in you can see a second circle on your map that shows you where the storm is going to end up.
Super useful, we hope it comes back to Fortnite soon.

Fresh off the presses: We just heard of a leak of a new flyer coming to Fortnite soon: The Venus Flyer.
Bringing some exotic plants into the game, we like it!

Twitter User @TwoEpicBuddies found proof that these four new emotes are coming to Fortnite very soon
Probably the most exciting is the Basketball Emote. Are there more sports emotes coming in the future? One can only hope!
Leaked on Twitter

We have learned that Fortnite is coming to Nintendo Switch! A tweet by @AAMARMO on Twitter shows a photo of an internal E3 document:
The photo above was posted on 4chan and found by @AAMARMO. Kotaku has heard from 2 different sources that this is, in fact, true.
We image the playing experience would be similar to the iOS version, but with vastly improved controls due to the Switch’s analog controllers.
