The infamous ‘Red Knight’ skin in Fortnite: Battle Royale may be returning to the game after dataminers unveiled some in-game files following the most recent patch.
Since its release in 2017, Epic Games has continuously introduced a slew of new content and features into Fortnite: Battle Royale for players to enjoy in order to keep the game ‘fresh.’
While Fortnite may be ‘free-to-play,’ the game offers a collection of in-game cosmetic items that can be purchased by players including skins, emotes, and more, allowing players to customize their respective character.

Certain skins have gained a substantial amount of notoriety for their rarity in regards to being available for purchase in the shop, which has led community members to question whether or not they will be returning.
One such instance is that of the ‘Red Knight,’ a skin which has not been seen in the Fortnite Store since mid-February, and was once thought of as a ‘seasonal’ item. However, Epic Games later confirmed that it was not seasonal, and could possibly return.
Following the latest V.4.5 patch, dataminers discovered a pickaxe titled ‘Pickaxe-Flintlock-RedKnight,’ leading community members to believe that the Red Knight may be coming soon to the Fortnite Shop.
As of writing, nothing has been confirmed by Epic Games regarding the return of the Red Knight, and it is unknown if it will be available to purchase in the near future.
