The Cubes have been a menace in the game ever since they arrived on the island. Moving around, leaving trails of weird colors, multiplying, and simply being a nuisance to the community. Thankfully, Epic Games is adding new weapons to the players’ arsenal with the latest patch.

Today’s hotfix launched the “Strike From the Shadows” Week in Fortnite. The special ninja event, unlike the previous ones, will allow players to outplay their opponents in a unique way.

During the event, the trademark Paper Bomb Kunai and the latest entries, Shadow Stones, and Shadow Floppers will be all over the island. Players can look to collect the latter two in order to turn into a shadow, allowing them to sneak behind their enemies without being detected.

Players can outsmart their opponents in various ways using their creativity. However, they can’t use any weapons in the “shadow form”, including the ninja’s secret weapon, Kunai, as per the news wire.

As a part of the new patch of version 18.40, the developers have also started collecting funds for the next weapon.
