The latest Fortnite leak reveals a new creature, known as "Butter Cake," and it might be ridable.
Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 is well underway. We've seen a huge array of new features added, including a new map, some new weapons, and some interesting characters to spot along the way. As it's only the beginning, Epic Games is bound to have some more up their sleeve and some leakers have taken it upon themselves to find out what.
Known Fortnite leaker, HYPEX, recently took to Twitter to highlight some of the potential additions coming to Fortnite in the future. One such feature included a strange purple creature, currently known as "Butter Cake."
New Fortnite Leak Hints at Ridable Creatures
According to HYPEX, this strange lizard-thing has four variants with one having a spawn location chance of 100%. Additionally, "Butter Cake" will also apparently have a blowhole, which players can likely use to redeploy.
A type of berry fruit is also set to spawn next the creature, and will also be sold by Haven for 25 Gold. It's not clear exaclty what the purpose of the fruit will be, though there's a good chance of it being a health or shield item. The creature will also apparently drop a 50HP piece of meat when destroyed - if you can bring yourself to do it.
The most interesting part of the leak, however, is that HYPEX describes "Butter Cake" as potentially being "the first rideable animal" in Fortnite. The Battle Royale has certainly had its fair share of interesting creatures over its seasons, from Raptors to Wolves to scary Loot Sharks. Running at your enemy on the back of one of these could be a lot of fun, so it's exciting to think that it could be a possibility in the future.
Of course, until an official announcement comes via Epic Games, the leaks are mostly speculation. HYPEX is a reliable leaker when it comes to Fortnite, but without a timeframe or official confirmation, who knows when we might see "Butter Cake" emerge.
