The best thing about a new Fortnite patch is often the fact that data miners are able to get their hands on the files and leak upcoming skins, items and cosmetics that are yet to go live.
This was, once again, the case with the release of the v6.20 patch on October 24. The update was already pretty awesome as it introduced the Fortnitemares 2018 event, challenges, skin, and even an all-new western-themed pistol called the ‘Six Shooter’, but the latest leaks make it even better!
As is almost always the case, @TwoEpicBuddies, a well-known data mining account on Twitter, was one of the first to release a number of new skins, cosmetics and emotes that we can expect to see coming to the game.
It looks like the Halloween theme is once again continuing, with a few skins that are clearly inspired by Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations, a Zombie Jonesy, and more. They’ve also included another look at the new Deadfire skin, which has progressive styles that change in-game.
