Fortnite Season 4 is nearly over, which means that fans are looking towards possibilities for Season 5. We haven’t heard very much about what the next season of Fortnite will bring us, but data miners have found a few items that could be coming down the line.
Hypex, one of the most popular data miners in the community, recently tweeted about a new “Wad” item that was added to the game files in the recent update. According to his tweet, “It’s planned to spawn in stashes & a safe.”
Based on the information that we have, the item looks like in-game currency (in-game meaning in a match, not in-game currency like V-Bucks).
Now, onto the speculative part. We have no idea what this item will be used for if it comes to the game, but there’s been a lot of talk about Epic potentially adding something similar to the Buy Stations from Warzone.
None of this talk has come from official sources, but streamers and fans of the game would love to see something like the Warzone Buy Stations come to Fortnite. They, seemingly, have the infrastructure for it too, with the Vending Machines from the last chapter.
As far as “stashes” and “safes” go, we could see something like the Buried Treasure that was around for a season or two in Chapter 1. For those who don’t remember, back in Season 7, you could grab a treasure map from a chest and it would direct you to nearby buried treasure – kind of like a Vault Keycard.
Of course, this is only big-time speculation and we have no idea what this “Wad” of, presumably, cash would do if it made it into the game. We can only hope that something like the Warzone buy stations will come to Fortnite at some point, though, and this could be our chance.
