Fortnite’s v9.30 update for their popular battle royale title is now live, and data miners are already searching through the game’s patch files hoping to find new pickaxes, skins, gliders, back blings and more that will be coming to the game in the future.
The v9.30 update introduced the brand new Chug Splash item, a consumable that gives 20 health or shield points to anyone who is hit by it when thrown. Epic have also reverted the shotgun delay and vaulted a number of items such as the Boom Bow in the patch.
Along with the brand new items, Epic have also added a number of brand new cosmetics to the game’s files, which will be added to the in-game store and made available for purchase over the next few days.
Cosmetic items are added to the game in one big batch, and are often hidden away inside the latest update in the hopes that players won’t see them until they are officially released by Epic themselves.
The good news for fans of cosmetic items is that data miners often release them as soon as they are added to the game, giving fans a sneak peek at what is set to be made available for purchase.
As usual, just because Epic Games add new cosmetics into the game’s files doesn’t guarantee that they will ever be made available for purchase, as the developers have added skins to the game in the past which never saw the light of day.
Following the v9.21 update which included no leaked skins, Epic Games have added a host of new items for fans to take a look at in the files for this week's patch.
