With the latest update for Fortnite Battle Royale, v.4.3.0, the dataminers have been busy searching through the game files, and have discovered new unreleased skins.

Epic Games is continuing its impressive content output, constantly adding more new cosmetic items to the game which is already raking in hundreds of millions each month.

And the player base is loving it, with season 4 dropping a whole new set of skins and then even more with each update, Fortnite fans have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to cosmetic and customization choices.

With no signs of slowing down, more skins have been leaked following the v.4.3.0 patch, including burglars, basketball players and what looks like more superhero inspired skins.

The leaks come from trusted source TwoEpicBuddies, who have been leaking the new skins via data mining regularly.

The info released so far doesn’t specify the names or rarities of the skins just yet, but that information should come out soon.

As with previous additions, some or all of these skins will only be available to battle pass holders, and may be unlocked through completing challenges – the weekly challenges for week 5 have been delayed until Thursday may 31st.

As soon as the names and rarities for these new skins and cosmetic items are released, we will keep you up to date.

For now, make sure you keep up to date with the all new patch notes, and make sure to complete all your active challenges – so you can unlock these skins ASAP.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
