Data-miners have discovered new cosmetic items coming soon to Fortnite Battle Royale that will be exclusively available on PlayStation 4.

PS4-exclusive cosmetic items are nothing new in the world of Fortnite BR, as there have been numerous bundles made available through the PS Store since the game’s release.

Most of these items and bundles have been offered for free to players, with the only requirement being that the player be subscribed to PlayStation Plus – Sony’s online gaming subscription. 

It appears that the next set of items will be a exclusive glider and contrails, thanks to leaks from prominent data-miners @lucas7yoshi and @FNBRLATLeaks.

The glider will be of Epic rarity and called Coaxial Blue, having an in-game description that reads: “dual-rotor tactical copter.”

As for the contrails, the item is reportedly of Rare rarity and will be called Blue Fusion: “Gone in a Flash.”

For those who may not be familiar with contrails, they are specially designed trails that emit from players’ hands and feet when they are gliding down.

The evidence that points to both of these items being solely available on the PS4 was found in encrypted game files, with the words ‘Cosmetics.Source.Platform.PS4″ clearly visible on the bottom lines. 

@lucas7yoshiScreenshots of the game files shows that both leaked items will be PS4-exclusive.

When will these leaked items release?

Those who play the popular battle royale on PS4 will recognize that the color scheme of both items corresponds perfectly with the design of the Carbon Pack, which happens to be the current cosmetic bundle available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers.

This suggests that the two leaked items could soon join that Carbon Pack, which would make sense since the pack currently only features the Carbon Commando Outfit and Carbon Pack Back Bling.

If the similarities turn out to just be a coincidence, then that means the leaked items will be part of a future set, the release date of which remains unknown at this point.

How to claim PS4-exclusive items

In order claim a cosmetic items bundle that is exclusive to PlayStation, players must visit the PlayStation Store and find the bundle, as long as it’s still actively available.

At which point, once signed in, the system will recognize if the user has an active PS Plus subscription, and then allow the player to add the bundle into their cart and download it free of charge.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.
