It looks like Fortnite could be on the brink of receiving a list of interesting new consumable items, including a Grappling Hook and Zip Line!

There is also more information on a new foraged item called the “Prickly Pear” which has been hinted at in earlier leaks.

The leaks come from @FNBRLeaks and @CrossLeaks on Twitter and seem to suggests that consumables will be receiving some attention in the near future.


The V5.20 patch, released on August 7, introduced the all-new Double Barrel Shotgun and Steady Storm Limited Time mode and also marked the beginning of a series of leaks from data miners that got their hands on the files.

While there is no detailed information on what any of the new items will do, the thought of Grappling Hooks and Zip Lines is sure to get imaginations racing.

If leaks from XDA Developers earlier in the week are accurate, the Prickly Pear will “Hurt N’ Heal”, so it sounds like it could have a double purpose.

Items that appear in the game files after a patch tend to be added to the live game fairly swiftly, so hopefully all of our questions will be answered in the near future!

The V5.2 leaks have also included a number of new skins, gliders, pickaxes and more, as well as some in-game footage of upcoming emotes.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
