This game is still under active development.

This page sucks.
If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.
Specifically: This page is a mess.

In Fortnite: Battle Royale, 100 players are dropped onto an island and pitted against each other, with the ability to craft structures and pick up weapons scattered around the island!

Also, the amount of skins and taunts you can unlock. It's probably the only piece of media where John Wick does the Carlton Dance on Thanos' dead body, while Ninja and Travis Scott high five and Master Chief does the Gangnam Style. That alone should be a selling point.

To do:
There are many more unused assets within the files.

; SafeZone Testing

This variable seems to set the testing ratio for debugging The Storm.

Currently, the only known truly unused item is the Dev Test Asset. It is used by developers to test gliders on big characters.

Other unused items include these Victory Umbrella variants

In the 5.40 update, an untitled Outfit with the filename "K-Pop" was added to the game and was removed in the 6.20 update. It was later reused for the iKONIK promotional skin. The K-Pop skin was reimaginated in the 14.60 update as the Dream Team bundle, adding new styles based upon the original famade concept art. However, the face of the man from the original K-Pop outfit was nowhere to be seen.

In the 8.40 update, an Outfit called Gemini was added to the game, which had 2 edit styles; blue (default) and red. It was removed in the 9.20 update to avoid resemblance to Raeve Maeve from Paladins: Champions of the Realm. It was later reused for the Astro Assassin Skin.

It was supposed to come with the Cryo Hops Back Bling, but it was recycled for Astro Assassin instead. It also has an unused red edit style.

There is also a completely unused pickaxe, called the Plasma Carrot.

There is a version of the "Apex Protocol" set with a yellow and blue color scheme that goes unused.

TBD Music

During Season X, A music pack named "TBD" was added. The music it calls is the Mission Intro from Fortnite: Save the World. When modded in game however, it plays the default lobby music.

Unused Maps

Some unused maps exist in early versions of Fortnite: Battle Royale

Internal Name

The Chapter 1 map (As well as the internal name) for Fortnite: Battle Royale is referred as "Athena" in the game files. The Chapter 2 map is referred to as "Apollo"

Unused Graphics

A hearty amount of placeholder graphics.

Unused Weapons/Consumables

Unused items that you were supposed to find in a match, like guns or shield potions.

Storm Tracker

During Season 4, an unfinished item called the Storm Tracker was mistakenly added to the game. The item would show where the next storm circle was. The icon was the same backpack icon from Save The World and the model was the Rose Team Leader Back Bling - very likely to be a placeholder.

Medic Pack

Around the time the Jetpack was added, a model was leaked. It appeared to be a semi-futuristic medical backpack. Unlike the Storm Tracker, no coding or usability was found. The concept might have been reused for the Bandage Bazooka in Chapter 2.


Unused Battle Bucks currency

There was a scrapped "Battle Bucks" currency back in Chapter 1 Season 1. The description was: "Currency earned by playing the Battle Royale game mode." This might had been recycled as Gold in Chapter 2 Season 5.

Unused weapons

There are a ton of test/old weapons in the files. Most of these are just Mythic weapons from old seasons (most of them got reused in the Arsenal LTM), collab weapons that don't work anymore (like Thanos's gauntlet and the Marvel superheroes' items), or scrapped/test weapons such as a Gnome Gun (that shoots gnomes), a Charge rocket, a Shotgod, "ElephantGarlic" (a weird device that shoots electric projectiles, apparently used for Battle Lab), and a Tinstack weapon, that functions similar to Fuse's Ultimate from Apex Legends.
