The Fortnite v8.30 patch is now live on all platforms, and data miners have already started to sift through the game’s files and unearthed a number of upcoming cosmetics like skins, gliders, harvesting tools and more.
Fortnite’s v8.30 patch introduced the brand new Reboot Van, which allows players to bring back fallen teammates using tokens that are dropped when they are eliminated, alongside a number of technical improvements that should help the game run smoother.
While many are excited about what Epic Games have officially released, Fortnite data miners have been hard at work poring over the update in search of leaked events, items or cosmetics that could be added to the game in the future.
The cosmetics found in the v8.30 patch include specific items for both Battle Royale and Save The World, meaning everyone who plays the hugely popular game will receive new cosmetics that they can purchase in the near future.
This week’s cosmetic items continue the theme of pirates and the jungle, as there is a brand new pickaxe in the form of a palm tree, much like those found at the pirate outpost Lazy Lagoon in the north of the map.
While these items have been added to the game in the v8.30 files, there is no guarantee that Epic Games will ever use them, as the developers have previously added items and cosmetics to the Fortnite files that have never seen the light of day.
For those that do become available, there is also no official timeline for their release, as Epic Games spread out cosmetics through days and even weeks in an attempt to give players a myriad of options to choose from.
