The iKONIK skin and Scenario emote turned out to not be as exclusive as first planned, after many people spotted that Epic had mistakingly added it to their in-game store on March 5. 

Samsung had announced that the content bundle would be available for just new owners of their new Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+ or S10e Android devices, but the mishap made them available early and to much more than just new phone buyers.

After being made aware of the gaffe, the developer has since owned the mistake and their latest announcement will be good news for those who managed to nab it from the store when they did. 

“There was an issue with how we set up the Outfit Pack within the mobile launcher, causing it to appear for free in the store during this limited time period,” JustMooney1 posted to the game’s subreddit. “If you claimed it, you keep it.”
