The Fortnite v13.40 update is now live on all platforms and, as expected, data miners have given us our first look at the new cosmetics coming to the game including skins, gliders and backblings.

The v13.40 Fortnite patch went live on August 5, finally bringing Joy Ride cars to the battle royale hit, a new Summer Splash LTM and the Coral Castle POI.


While the update has been rolling out and players waiting through downtime to drop in on the updated game, though, data miners such as Lucas7Yoshi have been hard at work getting us a look at the fresh new cosmetics we’ll be donning throughout the rest of the season.

Some classic skins return alongside an impressive new set of cosmetics.

The latest update sees the likes of Castaway Jonesy and Crustina make their return to the Item Shop, while the Mecha Team Shadow skin is a throwback to Season X, and Dynamo gets a fun new ‘Derby Dynamo’ variant, among other fresh looks.


In terms of backblings, the Shadow Jet Set looks to be the perfect accompaniment to the Mecha Team Shadow skin, while backbling such as Coral Cowl, Wind Shell and Back Scoop continue the summer theme in style.

The Raise the Cup emote is a fun ode to the Liverpool FC’s incredible Premier League win, and Freewheelin’ looks to bring a new Epic emote to the Item Shop. Meanwhile, the weapon camos are as flamboyant as ever, with Rainbow Rodeo and Sticker Star set to make anyone who uses them stand out.

Finally, the Shadow Combo Cleaver and Street Blades pickaxes are good if you’re looking for a bit of a darker look in the Summer LTMs with the former once again looking to complete the set that accompanies the Mecha Shadow Team.

So, now the question is — which new cosmetics are you going to be using when they drop?


Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.


Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form. 


This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
