“That’s the beauty of Fortnite in my opinion, another person’s trash can be someone else’s treasure. For example, I know a lot of people don’t use the Sleuth skin, but he’s one of my favorites!” One explained.

Others pointed out: “For older players he’s very nostalgic because of Kevin The Cube,” who just returned in a major way as a classic POI on the map and the skin clearly resembles the iconic fan-favorite.
