Epic Games have rolled out Patch v12.41 for Fortnite’s battle royale mode on April 21, and the hype is slowly building for Travis Scott’s in-game concert, with plenty of themed cosmetics on the way.

As hype builds for the Fortnite Travis Scott concert starting on April 23, players will be able to represent the rapper in-game.

A host of new cosmetics have been shipped with the v12.41 update on April 21, with players getting access to them in the coming days.

Fortnite v12.41 leaked skins

Fortnite’s latest update is all about Travis Scott. The Grammy-nominated rap artist will be getting two skins in-game just days ahead of his concert taking place on the Fortnite island.

The Travis Scott skin features the rapper topless, showing off his various tattoos. There’s also an Astro Jack skin, inspired by his Astroworld album, and following the theme of his upcoming show in Fortnite. The Astro Jack skin will come with a handful of different styles players can show off too.

If you aren’t a fan of Travis Scott, don’t fret. Two other skins will be hitting shelves soon ⁠— the Point Patroller and the Rue. Rue is part of the Lil’ Red set, and features red and black variants, while Point Patroller is not part of any skinline.

Fortnite v12.41 leaked pickaxes and gliders

If you pick up the Travis Scott skins, there’ll be a pickaxe perfectly made to match it. The Diamond Jack pickaxe is lined with diamonds all around, with fluro-red trimmings to boot.

You’ll also be able to take a ride at Astroworld with the Astroworld Cyclone glider dropping into the shop in the coming days.

There’s also a pickaxe coming for the Lil’ Red set called Thorn. Just like Rue, it’ll have a red and black variant, so you can pick up one to your taste.

Fortnite v12.41 leaked wraps and loading screens

To cap off the Travis Scott look, fans of the rap artist will be able to pick up the Goosebumps weapon wrap. Named after his 2016 hit featuring Kendrick Lamar, the wrap features a mix of blue, yellow, and orange, fading in and out of one another across the body of all your weapons.

There’s also three special-made loading screens you can pick up as part of the Travis Scott concert and its associated challenges.

The Astrowild, Cosmic Revolution, and Astrothunder loading screens will spruce up your game with hits of color, and a couple of portraits of the rapper too.

On top of these leaked cosmetics, new emotes, sprays, and backblings will be available, so you can appropriately jam out to Travis Scott’s in-game concert in the coming days.

Fortnite’s v12.41 update just went out, so you’ll have to wait and see over the next few days for the new items to pop up in the shop.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
