The name of an upcoming starter pack, ‘Summit Striker’, was discovered in the Fortnite game files following the v6.21 update, and now data miners have uncovered images of what it will look like.

Fortnite first added started packs in March 2018, just as the game began to peak in popularity, as a way of introducing new players to the V-Bucks microtransaction model and get them started on buying skins.

It typically gives players a skin, a back bling and some bonus V-Bucks, all at a discounted price from what it would cost to buy the V-Bucks and cosmetic items separately.

According to the game files, the Summit Striker pack will include 600 V-Bucks, the Summit Striker skin and back bling called ‘Top Notch’.

Both these skins are of the ‘Epic’ rarity, but whether they will convince players the purchase is worth it or not remains to be seen, as some players have complained in the past that starter pack skins are too basic.

Here are the first images of the Summit Striker skin and Top Notch back bling, courtesy of FNBRLeaks.

Top Notch – “Best in class.”

Epic Games has made no official announcement about this upcoming starter pack, and so there is no official release date or price set.

The pack’s file name does include ‘Season 6’ in it, but considering Season 6 is almost coming to a close, it is perhaps delayed until the start of Season 7, although the starter pack’s are usually separate any of the season driven ‘lore’ of Fortnite.

Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
