Star Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has given his fans the first glimpse of the cosmetic items that come as part of the exclusive Galaxy skin set in Fortnite Battle Royale. 

The Galaxy outfit skin is one of the rarest in Fortnite because it’s available exclusively to those who own certain Samsung Galaxy mobile devices.

Now, the skin’s back-bling, pickax, and glider have also been released, and Ninja was given the chance to showcase them to the public for the first time live on his stream.

Ninja, who is partnered with Samsung, will own the items exclusively for two days before anyone else has the chance to get their hands on them. 

The back-bling is called Galactic Disk and looks like the Milky Way galaxy attached to the outfit’s back. The pickax is called Stellar Axe and is essentially just an ax that has the same galactic theme as the skin.

The Discover glider rounds out the cosmetic set, and just as with the other items, it too features the star-filled, dark purple/blue theme of outer space. 

Here is a video of Ninja revealing these items for the first time, and equipping them together in his inventory.

“You guys have no idea,” he said. “We have this for two days before anyone else can get this.”

Since these items have not been formally announced by Samsung or Fortnite, it’s not clear how players will go about obtaining them.

However, if it follows the same process as the Galaxy skin, those who own specific Galaxy Note devices will be able to redeem these items through properly registered Epic Games accounts and have them appear in their personal in-game inventory. 


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
