On the Sunday before the Fortnite 10.40 update on September 22, leakers and dataminers uncovered numerous cosmetics from the upcoming update and gave us a look at them.
Usually, we don't get a glimpse at the new cosmetics until a patch is released but things are different this time around as the v10.40 cosmetics have become available days before the update.
There are numerous back blings, pickaxes, and skins to dig through here so let's just dive right in and take a look.
These new cosmetics, found by ShiinaBR, MaxWineBach, and FunGameLeaks, seem to take popular skins like and Cuddle Team Leader and give them a new twist.
Outside of the skins, we have several pickaxes and back blings, not to the mention the leaked load screens that show the skins in action.
There are a couple of gliders and a music pack also coming, so it looks like there's a lot to look forward to coming up if you're in need of some new gear from the item shop.
Unfortunately, the leaks don't give us a good idea of what to expect with the next update in terms of direction or map changes, so we'll have to wait for the actual update for that.

Ok, sure. :) Here's a little taste of what you'll get in a few minutes. :) pic.twitter.com/YIH3mlrX4y
It's possible we could be looking at even more cosmetics once the update actually releases but this is what we're looking at for right now.
We don't know any exact day for the update but if Epic Games keeps with the release schedule they've been using lately, it'd be a Thursday update.
Through most of the Season 10, the updates came out a Tuesday but with two straight Thursday updates, it's seeming like that'll be the case moving forward.
Be on the lookout for more cosmetics and information to come out of eventual datamines of v10.40.
