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 Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
