Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 has arrived and with it comes a brand-new set of leaks, one of which is suggesting Travis Scott could be getting his own skin.

The start of a new season is an exciting time in Fortnite for everyone, as it means loads of new content has entered the game, from new guns to skins.

It’s especially exciting for leakers and dataminers as they finally have something to dig through and they have discovered one prominent name in the files.

There’s a lot of new content to dive into in Fortnite Season 2.

Reliable Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi discovered a line that mentions Travis Scott, and it could actually hint to him getting his own skin at some point.

“This confirms some form of collaboration between him and Fortnite,” the dataminer wrote after unveiling the “TagName” code. “Exact details are not clear but it’s safe to say its probably a skin and some other stuff.”

This would make sense as Epic Games introduced the Icon Series last season and said they will be using it to introduce cosmetics for streamers and entertainers into Fortnite.

Travis Scott would be a perfect choice because he actually has ties to the game and arguably played a big role in its overall growth.

Although Drake gets all of the headlines, the night in March 2018 when Ninja teamed up with the rap superstar also saw Travis Scott as part of the squad.

The stream that night broke all sorts of viewer records and skyrocketed Ninja into the mainstream. He has already been rewarded with an Icon Series skin, and it looks like Scott could be the next on that list.

Epic has already begun to expand the program, adding streamers like Pokimane and Jordan Fisher into the mix, so it seems clear they’re looking to add more.

There are so many different ideas for Icon skins.

There are several worthy names out there, so it’ll be interesting to see who the developers plan on adding next.

As players wait for this potential Travis Scott skin, they can take a look through all of the skins that have already leaked as part of the Season 2 update.

In the meantime, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for any further developments about a cosmetic for the Sicko Mode rapper.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
