As usual, almost every update for Fortnite introduces a new collection of skins for players to express themselves in the game – and, thanks to data miners, players can get an early look at some skins before they’ve even been officially released.

Due to the efforts of a few of these data-miners, a collection of unreleased skins, gliders, pickaxes, and emotes from Fortnite’s v6.30 update were teased before ever being made available.

While a number of these skins have since gone live, fans can still count on the upcoming release for a remaining handful of cosmetics, including the stoic Guan Yu skin, the tactical Reflex skin, the Guandao pickaxe, and more. You can take a look at exactly which skins have yet to be released below:

Guan Yu (Epic)

Loyalty and bravery at all times

Riot (Rare)

Defending the pre-post-punk-post-hardcore scene

Instinct (Rare)

Victory comes naturally

Reflex (Rare)

Quick to react, first to retaliate

Loyal Shield

Dependable as always

Trusty Tusks (Epic)

Tufted and tusked

Reaction Tank (Rare)


Response Unit (Rare)

Send a message

Divine Dragon

Sail through the clouds, and row toward victory

Pivot (Rare)

Primed to pivot with precision

Hyper (Uncommon)

What’s up must come down

Guandao (Rare)

Sharpened for battle

Longhorn (Rare)

Corral the competition

Angular Axe (Uncommon)

Acutely obtuse

Aside from this slew of cosmetics, the v6.30 patch also introduced the infamous Mounted Turret, a Food Fight Limited-Time-Mode, the Last-World Revolver, and more, including major bug fixes.

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.
