A number of skins and cosmetics were leaked with the release of Fortnite’s V5.3 update.

Now, fans can know their names, what they look like, and just how rare they are.

With Fortnite’s V5.3 update, a slew of new game modes and bug fixes were introduced to the title. Quite a few skins and cosmetics were leaked along with it, and players can now see exactly what visual elements are in store for Fortnite’s latest iteration.

Twelve unique skins were leaked with the update. Ranging from historic Samurai armor to seventies Hippie garb, players will be able to change their style to suit their fancy.

Four of the upcoming skins sit inside the Legendary category. The ‘Ravage’ and ‘Enforcer’ skins appear to bring a stealthy, medieval style to the game.

Ravage (Legendary)

‘Circling overhead, shrouded by night…’


Enforcer (Legendary)

‘Balance and order must be restored’


The ‘Musha’ and ‘Hime’ skins allow players to don the garb of ancient Japanese Samurai.

‘A fearless and noble warrior’


Hime (Legendary)

‘Catlike grace under pressure’


Similarly, there are another four skins within the Epic scale of rarity. These skins include the ‘Far Out Man’ and ‘Dreamflower’ skins, so-named for their callback to the flower children of the seventies.

Alongside these two come The ‘Ace’ and ‘Cloaked Star,’ another two designs with an emphasis on face concealment and unique patterns.

Two new biker skins are also on their way. Classified as rare, ‘Backbone’ and ‘Chopper’ bring highway life to the battle royal title.

Vaulted & unvaulted weapons in Fortnite Season 5

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Epic Games
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
