Star Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has given his fans the first glimpse of the cosmetic items that come as part of the exclusive Galaxy skin set in Fortnite Battle Royale.
The Galaxy outfit skin is one of the rarest in Fortnite because it’s available exclusively to those who own certain Samsung Galaxy mobile devices.
Now, the skin’s back-bling, pickax, and glider have also been released, and Ninja was given the chance to showcase them to the public for the first time live on his stream.
Ninja, who is partnered with Samsung, will own the items exclusively for two days before anyone else has the chance to get their hands on them.
The back-bling is called Galactic Disk and looks like the Milky Way galaxy attached to the outfit’s back. The pickax is called Stellar Axe and is essentially just an ax that has the same galactic theme as the skin.
The Discover glider rounds out the cosmetic set, and just as with the other items, it too features the star-filled, dark purple/blue theme of outer space.
Here is a video of Ninja revealing these items for the first time, and equipping them together in his inventory.
“You guys have no idea,” he said. “We have this for two days before anyone else can get this.”
Since these items have not been formally announced by Samsung or Fortnite, it’s not clear how players will go about obtaining them.
However, if it follows the same process as the Galaxy skin, those who own specific Galaxy Note devices will be able to redeem these items through properly registered Epic Games accounts and have them appear in their personal in-game inventory.
