For a long time now, the best way to get a detailed look at your Fortnite stats would be to head over to a third-party website that would keep track of your statistics.
If you’re looking for things like how many eliminations you average per match, what your average placement is, and even the number of points you average per Arena game, then you’d be hard-pressed to find it through Fortnite itself.
Fortunately for all you out there who are interested in seeing how you stack up against the rest of your competition, an easy way to track your stats could be just over the horizon.
Let’s take a look and see what’s presumably coming to the game. Keep in mind that this is an unconfirmed leak, so it’s important to take all of this information with a grain of salt.

Thanks to Fortnite leaker HYPEX, we have a look at a possible upcoming leaderboard overhaul that would show you a detailed breakdown of your placements, average eliminations and more.
It’s definitely a long-overdue feature, so it’d be very nice to see it actually come into fruition. Like all leaks, it’s important to take it with a grain of salt because HYPEX even states that this is possibly something that has been scrapped.
It’d be a bit weird if that was the case because it does seem like something that would really be appreciated among players. Even if it’s only for the Arena playlist, it’d still go a long way to letting players know how they stack up against the competition.
You can already get a look at scoreboards like this through tournaments, but that’s no help to anybody who would just like to get a sense of where they are outside of tourneys.
Could This Happen Soon?
With the v15.40 patch now coming and going with no sign of this sort of update anywhere in sight, it’s now looking like we’ll have to wait until Season 6 to see if this finally enters the game. On the other hand, that could also mean the leaderboard was scrapped, so time will definitely reveal more truth about this leak.
Luckily, that’s coming up pretty fast on us as we’re almost exactly a month away. The start of a new season is usually an exciting time because it means a new Battle Pass, new map changes, and a new weapon pool.
Of course, there are always some downsides to big changes, with Season 5’s biggest and most controversial one being the vaulting of the Pump Shotgun. Perhaps it could make a return in the next season.
Only time will tell. One thing’s for certain and it’s that there will definitely be a wild end to this season because there’s still so much we don’t know about and the conclusion is fast approaching.
If Epic wants to unravel a lot of the mystery surrounding this season’s villain, then they will have to start doing it very soon.
