Fortnite Battle Royale players have been grinding their way through weekly challenges with the target to eventually obtain a “secret skin” at the end of Chapter 2’s Season 1, and it looks like it’s finally been leaked for all to see. 

The popular battle royale game has a wide selection of different skins for fans to purchase in the Fortnite Item Shop, and a boatload have even been available to pick up in weekly challenges as well, for Battle Pass owners.

Those who purchased this season’s Battle Pass were delighted to see that there was an extra incentive to collect hidden items, as those who find all of the hidden letters to the word ‘Fortnite’ were promised a skin that we’ve never seen before.

Now, weeks after the season began, it looks like data miners have finally revealed what it looks like.

Epic GamesAs you can see, letters are subtly added to loading screens to show Fortnite players where to find them each week.

Previous seasons have had legendary skins to work towards throughout the season, tasking players with leveling up their Battle Pass to a certain point before giving them a new outfit.

This time, though, all you need to do is find the missing letters. It’s made quite easy by Epic Games, too, who hide clues in each of their weekly loading screens. These can be obtained by completing weekly challenge sets.

So, after collecting the F, O, R, T, N, I, T and the E by the end of the season, let’s take a look at the secret skin you could pick up as a reward – courtesy of leaker Lucas7yoshi. 

Although the leaker wasn’t certain at first, they followed up to confirm this is indeed the ‘secret skin’.

The latest set of ‘Trick Shot’ challenges, released for Week 7, includes the second to last hidden letter – T – and finding it, as well as all of the rest, will put you one step closer to obtaining this new ‘Sorana’ skin.

It also appears to have three different styles, which will presumably all be unlocked in one hit.

Some players may be disappointed that the new skin isn’t more extravagant, but, whatever your opinion, you have to admit that she’s wearing a nice jacket.

Huge Fortnite Season 5 leaks have revealed the next major update will be a crossover with Star Wars and The Mandalorian, featuring Baby Yoda. 

The update is expected to land at the end of November, with Epic Games continuing their relationship with Disney. Previous seasons have been all about Marvel, and following on from the success of The Mandalorian Season 2, it looks like the game is set to strike while the iron is hot on the hype.

On November 24, within the week the patch is expected to roll out, leakers ShiinaBR and others are reporting the crossover is imminent.

First of all, the dataminer tweeted: “So the next Battle Pass is Star Wars themed?? Both the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda will be a part of it!”

This very quickly caught the attention of fans, before later posting a leaked image of the Battle Pass advertising.

As seen below, there is an image of Fortnite skins – spearheaded by the Mandalorian – and to his side you can see little Baby Yoda, which will presumably be a Back Bling in the next major update.

There are reports that this will be a monthly subscription service to the game, which will land players a select amount of V-Bucks per month, the Battle Pass for each season, and new skin packs to open with cosmetics and outfits inside.

Presumably, that will roll out alongside the next major update. According to website Indigo Pearl, it will cost £9.99 / $9.99 per month and will including the following.

  • Battle Pass
  • 1,000 V-Bucks each month
  • New Monthly Crew Pack!

Once we have more information confirmed by the developers, we’ll be the first to let you know. It looks like it’s going to be a big season for the game, following on from Season 4 which was all about the Avengers and ultimately – Galactus as well.
