Fortnite Season 6 is off to a fantastic start. With the new "primal" theme, the game has a fresh feel to it. The current season is scheduled to receive updates as well, with the Fortnite 16.10 update almost around the corner.

The upcoming update will receive a plethora of bug fixes, as indicated by their Trello board, along with some exciting game-related content.

Fortnite Season 6 leaks offer insight into the direction the current season might be taking

When it comes to the current season, the Neymar Jr skin sees a lot of hype surrounding it. Although there is a part of the community that questions the footballer's relevance to the game as a whole, a larger portion is excited.

Recent Fortnite Season 6 leaks suggest that the Neymar Jr skin will have two variants, along with a glider, pickaxe, and emote, apart from a few other things.

The skin unlocks on April 27th, and everyone with the Battle Pass will have access to the skin and its corresponding missions.


As confirmed by Epic Games, the Fortnite 16.10 update should arrive sometime this week.

Given the kind of trend that the publisher followed last season, with every update dropping on a Tuesday, there's a chance they might follow the same for this week, with the update dropping on March 30th.

Furthermore, the upcoming update might bring raptors to Fortnite Season 6. Epic has been teasing dinosaurs in the game for a while now.

With the raptor eggs finally cracking on the island, there's a high chance that the developer may include them in the Fortnite 16.10 update.


In a recent Epic announcement, the developers teased a few "Unstable Exotics" scheduled to join Fortnite Season 6. Currently, the ongoing season has only four exotics sold by NPCs on the island.

There's a chance that the new exotics might start dropping with the Fortnite 16.10 update itself.

Those who've played the "Mystery at the Croft Manor" event have received a preview of the Grappler Bow. Although it isn't a bow of sorts, it is a grappler in essence.

Once the Grappler Bow makes it into Fortnite Season 6, it will change the way players rotate on the island.
