The Fortnite leaks keep coming as data miners look into the v9.40 game files. Take a look at some Creative leaks, an Apex Legends mechanic, and more leaked skins coming to the game.
We have some exciting news about Creative Mode, as well as a new game mechanic lifted directly from Apex Legends.

Fortnite has never been shy about borrowing from other games - no more so than their top competitor in the Battle Royale market: Apex Legends.
We've already seen Fortnite borrow a ping system and Reboot Vans from Apex, but they're not the only game to do that. Call of Duty: Blackout made similar changes after Apex Legends became so successful.
Now, it looks like Fortnite is going to revamp their dropping mechanic.
In Apex Legends, one player is the "Jump Master" and the other two players follow. You can choose to break off or jump solo, but the default setting keeps a team together.
Fortnite looks to do a similar thing with this newly leaked information.
Like a lot of things Apex has done, jumping as a team is a massive quality-of-life improvement. Any teammate who is AFK has a chance to return before touching down without losing the rest of his or her squad.
This is a small problem in Fortnite, but one that would be fixed with the implementation of this new jumping mechanic.
Creative Mode Leaks

Fortnite Creative Mode got some leaked additions as well, with the Prop-O-Matic Manager and the Llama-Tron.
The former allows you to create your own Prop Hunt maps, but the latter is even more interesting.
According to @Lucas7Yoshi, these screens will allow you to watch Twitch streams while playing creative mode. We don't have details on how this would work, but there's a strong chance that Epic will implement the screens ahead of the World Cup.
It's unclear what this button will do, but it could very well have something to do with the TV. You might be able to link a few channels to your Creative TV and switch them while you play.
Either that, or the button could play a role in races, mazes, or any of the other game modes people make in Creative.
More Leaked Skins
We also saw a few more skins get leaked, including a female World Cup skin and a Mecha Team Leader outfit for the upcoming event.
