A new "Fortnite" update is about to drop and it will reintroduce the once deemed OP of a weapon, the Guided Missile. While the game's player base wait for the new patch to go live, data miners are digging up the game files once again to see what they can still find.

A couple of them came out with an interesting find within the files that deal with item rarity in "Fortnite's" battle royale mode. Both @StormLeaks and @sud4nym recently took to Twitter to reveal a test glider that the developers use to test other gliders. It may seem that it's a regular asset for the game but what made it intriguing is the fact that the item has a Transcendent rarity to it.

Only for developers

@StormLeaks believes, however, that this there's nothing special about this rarity since it's being used as a test asset by Epic. YouTuber and "Fortnite" player Camping Rusher also thinks the same thing as the leaker added that it will stay within the game's testing assets.

@sud4nym also posted another tweet claiming that the Chinese version of "Fortnite" is just some sort of "testing grounds" for the original iteration of the third-person shooter. The data miner further explained that stress tests are being conducted lately on that version, adding that it will continue until September. He went on, stating that the stuff that is currently in "Fortnite" China will most likely be released to the U.S. version of the game.

Meanwhile, @FNBRLeaks recently leaked what could be the set of challenges for season 5's week 5.

He made it clear though that these are still subject to change just as happened in week 3:

  • Search Chests in Junk Junction (0/7)
  • Use Rift Portals (0/3)
  • Eliminate opponents (HARD) (0/3 )
  • Deal damage to players with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade (0/300)
  • Hit a Hole in One from different trees (0/5)
  • Follow the treasure map found in Greasy Grove (HARD) (0/1)
  • Eliminate opponents in Shifty Shafts (HARD) (0/3)

The first three quests will be free for all players while the rest will require the Battle Pass.

Among the challenges, players are quite irked about the Hole in One challenge as they deem it to be too difficult to complete. Others stated that they'll be revisiting the leaked information once the challenges go live to see if some of the quests get tweaked.

As mentioned, the V5.10 content update will go live today, July 31 at 4:00 AM ET. Epic even made a quick update, announcing that a downtime is no longer required for the upcoming patch.
