All signs are pointing to the imminent release of the highly-anticipated Dark Bomber skin in Fortnite’s daily Item Shop on October 4.
First teased in one of the loading screens of Fortnite Season 5’s Battle Pass, Dark Bomber is a skin that fans have been waiting on for over a month.
Dark Bomber is a doppelganger to the Bright Bomber skin that was introduced to the game back in January and will seemingly have a strange connection to ‘Kevin,’ the glowing cube that had plagued Fortnite for the last few weeks.
No details were given when that loading screen was first unlocked in September, but Epic offered the clearest hint at the skin’s release with a single tweet Thursday afternoon.

Surely, the lightning and clouds, in juxtaposition with the sunshine and rainbows, is referring to the long-hyped skin.
As expected, the comments section of the tweet is full of exciting Fortnite players, which means that Epic stand to make a lot of money through the release of the skin.
It is also expected that the skin will launch with a matching ‘Thunder Crash’ pickaxe and ‘Dark Glyph’ glider, as detailed by leaks found in the V6.01 patch earlier this week.
The shop will update at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET and we can’t wait to hopefully get our hands on the skin.
