The release of patch v4.2 in Fortnite Battle Royale patch has resulted in a number of new finds in the game’s files, including new skins, pickaxes and back bling.

Season 4 of course has already brought with it a lot of new items, and it looks like Epic Games will be continuing to churn out the cosmetic customization items as the season goes on.


Data miners, TwoEpicBuddies, have discovered some new skins and items hidden in the game files that were released along with the most recent V4.2 patch.

It looks like there is another fish/alien head character, some new space suits (or possibly diving suits), and some impressive back bling and axes.


The files cannot determine the names or rarities of the skins yet, so this is all the information we have on these new skins as of right now.

It is likely that some of these skins will only be available to battle pass holders, and may be unlocked through completing challenges, similar to the previous set of skins in season 4.

When we know more about these new skins, with their names and rarities, we will keep you up to date.


For now, make sure you keep up to date with the all new patch notes, and cheat sheet for this weeks challenges, so you can rank up and unlock these skins ASAP.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its endpoint, some fans are already looking ahead to what the cinematic end of season event might have in store, as well as what Chapter 2, Season 5 could be about in terms of the theme.


Despite all the speculation, Epic Games are just cracking on with keeping the current season feeling fresh – releasing new challenges, new cosmetics, as well as some other superpowers for players to use.

On top of that, they’ve also been rooting out problems with their regular updates. With the v14.30 patch on the horizon, the devs have also got a few fixes coming to all of their modes. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

A handful of problems have been labeled as ‘Fixed in next Game Update’ on their public Trello board as of October 10, with a few annoying battle royale issues being addressed.

These include the issue with movement stopping when placing a marker, inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble, and licensed audio playing on the Last Forever emote.

In addition to those, mobile players who had been frustrated by the XP bar not showing the correct level will have their issues fixed as well. 


Fortnite v14.30 bug fixes

  • Placing a map marker cancels movement 
  • Inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble 
  • Audio of Last Forever emote playing even with licensed audio muted 
  • XP bar can be visually incorrect while in a match/incorrect leveling up on mobile. 

As for Save the World, there are two issues labeled as fixed in Future Game Update, including the wrong animation for the Sword of the Daywalker and Xbox homeshare players being unable to access STW.

However, as leaker iFireMonkey points out, these are not guaranteed to ship with the v14.30 update and could be coming later down the line. We’ll just have to wait and see.
