Freeze Traps Could be Coming to Fortnite According to Latest Leaks

Stop right there.

A new freeze trap might have been datamined for the upcoming update in Fortnite Battle Royale. At least according to FNBRLeaks.

In a tweet, the Fortnite dataminers discovered the new Freeze Trap, which will be a Rare level drop that both slows down players and deals a small amount of damage.

The Freeze traps will likely replace boost traps, though there's no word on when we'll see the new traps enter the game. Season Six just began, so there's a whole season of new items and content that could drop, so keep your eyes peeled.

We already know a new Disco-themed limited time mode is coming, which will require players to use dance emotes to earn some points. The map has already changed for the season by adding a floating fortress that's getting some Halloween-vibes as well.

Fortnite Season 8 is well underway. We've got all the info, including the Fortnite Week 3 Challenges. We've also got The Fortnite Expedition Outpost Locations.
