Fortnite fans who were hoping to get their hands on the special Marshmello skin found in the game’s files may be set for a let down, if leaks turn out to be accurate.
Dataminers sifting through Fortnite’s V7.30 update came across a number of new items hidden in the game’s files relating to popular EDM producer Marshmello.
Within the update, players found an in-game event that will see the DJ perform an in-game concert at Pleasant Park, alongside a number of cosmetic items fashioned to resemble Marshmello - including a pickaxe and a skin.
Unfortunately, it appears that fans of the game who hoped to rock the same white helmet as the DJ in Fortnite will not be able to, as leakers suggest the skin will not be made available for purchase.
Fortnite news and leaks account FNBRHQ claim that the Marshmello skin will only available as an NPC, or Non-Player Character, and will not be available to buy from the in-game item store or as a reward for completing the Marshmello Festivus challenges.
A Spray, Glider and Harvesting Tool that were found in the files will still be available to players who want to show their support for the electronic artist.
Marshmello is set to take over Fortnite’s Pleasant Park on Saturday, February 2 with a huge concert taking over the football field in the middle of the location.
A stage has already began to be constructed, with more pieces likely to be added over the next few days in the build up to the event which begins at 2PM ET (11AM PST, 7PM GMT).
