It’s been on the cards for a while, but it looks like it’s finally happening…. Data miners have been looking into the files of the latest Fortnite update, and it reveals that a Terminator 2: Judgment Day skin (or a double pack of skins) is coming.
The confirmation for Terminator Fans is the below image; which is instantly recognisable as the T2 vault at Cyberdyne Systems that contained the chip and arm from The Terminator (1984).
You can also hear a sample of Brad Fiedel’s music in the sound mix.
@FNLeaksAndInfo said that the new portal will arrive in Steamy Stacks.
The portal has since opened, and you can see the Cyberdyne System vault image / video loop inside…

🍁O portal “Typhoon” foi aberto perto de Chaminés Chamuscantes, e há chances enormes de trazer o “Exterminador do Futuro” para o Fortnite!#Fortnite #FortniteSeason5 #FortniteBR pic.twitter.com/6QbtRnF2pp— Blvck!😳- Informante de vazamentos/noticias de FN. (@BlvckkFN) January 20, 2021
The Terminator portal is called “Typhoon” and the only skin we know of with the same codename is called “TyphoonFemale”.— ShiinaBR – Fortnite Leaks (@ShiinaBR) January 20, 2021
So we’ll probably get a female person from the Terminator movies, but not the Terminator himself.
The above tweet is suggesting only a female skin – but we believe the T-800 could be a part of this regardless. How can you have a Terminator event / skin without a Terminator?
The codename ‘typhoon‘ is being used, and the comparison is much like Judgment Day; in that a typhoon is an event that causes devastation
Some files are harder to decrypt but what the data miners know is that a female character is part of this release, and that would of course be Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). Though some people are debating a double pack like The Walking Dead’s recent skin pack.
While clues have pointed to the Persol style of sunglasses that Arnold Schwarzenegger wore in Terminator 2: Judgment Day – added to the recent inclusion of the Winchester shotgun, it would be hoped this is a T2 tie in and not Terminator: Dark Fate.
Thanks again to ‘The Stikanator‘ for the tip off!
UPDATE: Fortnite has dropped another clue as to the identity of the next ‘hunter’ to enter the game… is it Sarah Connor, or a double pack featuring Sarah Connor and the T-800?
The accompanying transmission log text reads:
“:: Incoming Transmission – Reality Log 991 ::Fortnite
Targets Description: A ruthless machine and a protector of the future”
Note the plural of ‘Targets’…
