Fortnite: Leaked skins and cosmetics from v8.20 patch

Epic Games have officially released the v8.20 patch for v8.20 Fortnite patch officially went live on Wednesday, March 27, and brought with it a host of changes and new items, such as the Poison Dart Trap, Foraged Items and an unpopular change to the rewards players received following an elimination.

While Fortnite fans have plenty of new content to sink their teeth into, they’ll also have plenty of new cosmetic items to spend their V-Bucks on in the near future.

Fortnite fans will need to watch out for the deadly new Poison Dart Trap.

As is customary following a Fortnite update, data miners have been digging through the files that were added to the game during downtime, and have come across a number of new cosmetic items that will likely be added to the Item Shop.

The leaked skins continue two of the major themes for Fortnite Season 8, based around pirates and the massive volcano.

As usual, there is no word on when these items will be added to the Item Shop, or how much they will cost when they finally make it there. Throughout Season 8, Epic Games have added two weeks worth of consumables in each major update, so expect to see them all make an appearance over the course of the next 14 days.

Of course, just because they have been added to the game’s files doesn’t mean they will ever appear in the game, as Epic have previously included new files in a patch, just to never use them.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

Galactus can be seen in the water outside of the Fortnite island.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
