Since the v10.10 update, data miners have found the Junk Rift in the game files. This looks to be the next leaked Fortnite item headed to the game.
Season 10 of Fortnite has been quite the disappointment for most of the hardcore players. Epic doesn't seem to care that their dedicated player base hates the mech. They added one of the least-popular features back into the game with zombies at Retail Row, and continue to release lackluster updates that don't inspire confidence.
Data miners have found what looks to be the next item coming to Fortnite, though: the Junk Rift.
The Junk Rift
At first glance, the Junk Rift looks a lot like the Port-A-Rift of old. Epic has severely nerfed mobility in Season 10, so it would make sense if they brought back an old mobility classic.
Some more information on the item makes it seem like it will perform differently, though. Popular data miner Lucas7Yoshi found some effects in the game files, which suggest the Junk Rift is going to transport items instead of players.

Basically it'll drop in random crap onto whereever you throw it at it seems.

These effects confuse things a bit, but I'm still willing to bet that this item will have something to do with mobility.
Right now, all we have are Shockwave grenades and Launch Pads, compared to last season when we had those two items, Glider Re-Deploy, Floating Towers, the Flint Knock, Slipstreams, and Geysers to traverse the map.
We'll have to wait and see when the Junk Rift comes out, but we can expect it in a content update next week.
