It’s not even October yet and Fortnite is believed to have two horror themed crossovers on the horizon, including Stranger Things.
Back in 2019, Fortnite introduced some Stranger Things cosmetics as part of a cross-promotional push for the show’s third season.
Considering the Netflix series remains a hot commodity, it would make perfect sense for the two to collaborate once more, now that it’s midway through its fourth and penultimate season.
Nothing has been officially confirmed yet, but some datamining efforts seem to have uncovered proof of a second crossover ahead of the season’s second half, which debuts this week.
As part of the last Fortnite update, somewhere in its code is an encrypted set only known as WaffleWarrior. What does this have to do with Stranger Things? Well, waffles are the favourite food of Eleven, the series’ child psychic.
If this turns out to be the case, then this next set of Stranger Things cosmetics will likely become available within the coming week, since season 4 picks back up again this Friday on July 1.
This theory was shared by Fortnite leaker FNBRIntel on Twitter, although they do think that it could be a stretch and in reference to something else entirely.
Theory: Stranger Things Collab No. 2 ðŸ”¥
There’s currently an encrypted set called “WaffleWarrior” and in the series the character “Eleven” only eats waffles. Could be a stretch but if it is a Stranger Things collab we will see the skins on July 1st with S4 VOL 2! #Fortnite pic.twitter.com/KZKf1z5SCE

This isn’t the only Fortnite rumour to crop up recently. Another leaker, ShiinaBR, claims to have been sent evidence that the battle royale is crossing over with another horror themed property: Dead By Daylight.
They’ve shared a couple of the images they were given, one being of a Fortnite skin of Meg Thomas, one of Dead By Daylight’s original survivor characters, while the other is a Fortnite llama charm for Dead By Daylight.
Fortnite has already added cosmetics based on other popular online multiplayer games like Among Us, so it’s entirely believable.

Dead By Daylight is no stranger to crossovers either, although it’s limited itself to other horror franchises like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and, coincidentally enough, Stranger Things.
It’s also not afraid to get ridiculous, as evidenced by the very real announcement of a dating sim spin-off that will let you romance some of the game’s serial killers.
Fortnite is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
RUMOR: A Fortnite X Dead by Daylight collaboration might happen soon!
According to an anonymous source that has sent me this image and some other proof a few days ago, we could get a “Llama” charm in DBD, and a “Meg Thomas” skin in Fortnite! pic.twitter.com/HaaqFNLYj0
