Rapper and producer Travis Scott is set to receive his very own skin in Fortnite, following leaked game files which included his name, and now a leaker may have revealed a first glimpse at what the skin will look like in-game.

After rocketing to mainstream success with his 2018 album Astroworld, Scott was known to be a Fortnite fan, as he dropped into the battle royale island alongside Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and fellow rapper Drake.

Fortnite has come a long way since that stream two years ago, with countless skins and cosmetics added to the game, including one for Ninja himself. Now it looks like Travis Scott might be next up.

Who can forget Ninja’s Fortnite stream with Drake, Travis Scott and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

The prospect of a Travis Scott skin was first leaked back in February, just after the Season 2 update went live.

Suddenly, a new Cosmetic Set with the rapper’s name appeared in the game files, but there were no assets to go with it, meaning we had no idea what the skin itself would look like.

But, on March 17, reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX shared an image of what is potentially the Travis Scott skin in full.

However, HYPEX does say that he cannot 100% confirm that it is real, and is still trying to tie down the exact source.

Some fans joked that the skin looks a lot like CJ from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, while others questioned if it was real at all.

As with any leaks, it’s important to remember that they’re not always accurate, so we won’t know for sure what the Travis Scott skin looks like until it’s official.

And that’s if Epic Games makes it official at all, as they’ve been known to scrap ideas in the past if they don’t work. We’d expect though that there is some kind of collaboration with the rapper and the game, for them to even spend time on it at all.

It’s also interesting that Nike shoes are worn by the character, perhaps hinting at another crossover with the legendary brand after their successful Jordan collaboration back in May 2019.


Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
