A creative fan has designed two incredible concept skins that imagine the Fortnite island is full of buried treasure.

Fortnite fans have become well known for their artistic talents and incredibly creativity, and Reddit user fantasyfull is the latest to show of their skills with this incredible design.

Uploaded to the Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit, the design, aptly named Treasure Hunter, features two skins alongside two custom back blings and a special harvesting tool.

The female version of the skin has a large gold chain around her neck, with small bags of gold coins clipped to her jeans, which have been ripped at the knees during her adventures. Strapped to her back is her greatest prize, a solid gold llama which she found somewhere on the map.

While the female version of the skin has secured her treasure, the male is still searching for his, but is tooled up as he hunts for those elusive but precious items. Strapped to his leg is a knife, while a grappling hook dangles from his belt allowing him to get to hard to reach places.

Ready to be slung over his shoulder is a backpack, with what appears to be an ice axe sticking out of the top, while the harvesting tool for this set is a skull perched on top of a long stick, which they likely found while seeking riches.

Unfortunately for those who like these designs, they are currently just concepts and there are no official plans from Epic Games to add them into the popular battle royale title.

However, that doesn’t mean we will never see them, as the developers have taken fan created designs in the past and added them to the game, such as the Tender Defender skin.


Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
