Recently, leaks of what appears to be a special Halo crossover event in Fortnite have emerged on Twitter. Based on everything that has been leaked so far, there will be three new cosmetics available to players: A Master Chief skin, a Mongoose emote, and a Pelican glider. You can take a look at all three in the Tweet below:

Additionally, there are reports that there will be a special Capture the Flag mode in Fortnite that's inspired by the one offered in the Halo games.
While the credibility of these leaks is in question, it's undeniable that the assets that have appeared on social media look very official and believable, albeit at low resolutions. We're expecting that the leaks are true and that the crossover will be officially announced soon, but ultimately, only time will tell.
Something else worth noting is that this crossover is most likely the source of the rumor that Halo Infinite may potentially have a battle royale mode. Overall, we like the idea, but it's probably not going to happen since 343 Industries called the rumors "unfounded."
Fortnite: Battle Royale is available now for free on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, Nintendo Switch, and Windows 10 PCs. Meanwhile, Halo Infinite is expected to release sometime in 2021 on Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One consoles, and Windows 10 PCs.
Currency you'll need
Get ALL the cosmetics
V-Bucks are Fortnite's in-game currency that allows you to purchase awesome cosmetics. You'll most likely need them to get the Halo-themed cosmetics if the crossover ends up happening.
The next adventure in the saga
A new Great Journey awaits
Halo Infinite is sure to be an incredible game filled with wonder, adventure, and more. We just don't know when we'll be seeing it all just yet.
I don't know how this will be recieved as the gaming community wants Halo infinite news rather than Fortnite x Halo crossover
It'll be received the same as all other Halo news - with whining and constant anger from keyboard warriors.
Seems cool, could help to get others interested in Halo. I don't play Fortnite but I'd have a few games just to see/try this stuff out. If only all of those kids weren't such astoundingly good architects.
