Fortnite Datamine Uncovers New Skins, Gliders, Pickaxes, and More


Without a doubt, Fortnite's Update 5.3 has brought a bevy of fun new materials into the wildly popular multiplayer sandbox survival title, such as the new Rift-To-Go item, the fresh area known as Tomato Temple, and much more. Now, it looks as if Epic Games also plans on giving the store a pretty sizable update, too, as a recent datamine has uncovered a trove of new cosmetics in the way of skins, gliders, pickaxes, back bling, and emotes.

Thanks to the work of the Fortnite fan and Redditor known as "Lucas7yoshi" (with help from the Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit's mods), fans can get a gander at all of the freshly datamined materials in the handful of images below. Of course, with these assets having been found in the hybrid construction shooter's game files, there's no telling exactly when they will officially be arriving for players to acquire.







Back Bling




For those unaware, these datamined items will join a surfeit of other Fortnite cosmetics, as Epic Games has continually kept the store updated with a plethora of different skins, gliders, pickaxes and more for players who want to stand out from their opponents on the battlefield. For instance, Season 5 has already seen a wide range of various Battle Pass outfits added to the game, so for those who get excited about skins and other cosmetics, this latest datamine should be pleasing.

All things considered, while fans wait patiently for all of the newest datamined content to make its way into Fortnite, they can at least bide their time by checking out the new Limited Time Mode dubbed Score Royale. Instead of aiming to achieve the standard Battle Royale victory – that is, to be the last person standing – one will need to be the first to cross a points threshold by collecting coins, looting treasure, and eliminating other players in the new LTM, which could become quite popular with the title's myriad players.

Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with an Android beta currently underway.
