Fortnite Battle Royale players can now run around in the original Contractor Penny skin, hours after data miners uncovered the skin in the files.

Epic Games have revealed hundreds of skins in recent times, some of which are a spin on the original characters, and others are brand new. Many of these are leaked ahead of schedule by people having a look at the title’s code.

This time, it’s Constructor Penny.

Constructor Penny has been available in Save the World for some time. But, never Battle Royale. That could be about to change.

Leaker VastBlast, who regularly posts their data mining findings online, recently discovered a teaser for Penny. At that time, it was a silhouette.

It looked like something Epic would post on Twitter a few days before adding a new skin to the Fortnite Item Shop.

Since then, they have posted a newer image where the entire skin can be seen.

On top of that, Epic had been teasing her arrival on their Twitter account as well. This could mean that the leaked skin’s arrival is coming sooner than many may think.

On August 12, they posted just three emojis. They have done this in the past as well, when teasing different crossovers and in-gam events. This time, It was a construction worker, tools, and a shopping cart.

This skin is now live in-game, with players able to spend their hard-earned V-Bucks on Penny in the Item Shop.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
