A well-known Fortnite leaker hinted that the exclusive Travis Scott skin might be returning to the game soon to celebrate the rapper’s very own holiday.

It’s probably safe to say the Travis Scott concert set the gold standard for in-game Fortnite events, with more than 12 million people logging on to watch the show. Soon after it happened in April 2020, the limited-time skin that was also available quickly became one of the hottest looks from the Item Shop.

Like many of the best skins in Epic’s battle royale though, Travis soon disappeared from the store, and fans who missed out have been waiting for its return ever since. That wait might be coming to an end though, if new rumors are to be believed.

On February 5, Fortnite leaker @HYPEX posted on Twitter that the Travis Scott skin could be coming back for a limited time to mark the rapper’s holiday — literally called “Travis Scott Day.”

“Travis Scott *MIGHT* return on February 10,” HYPEX wrote in the tweet that quickly went viral. “Because that’s considered the Travis Scott Day in some places!”

Sure enough in certain parts of the US, like Missouri City, Texas where Scott was raised, February 10 is officially known as “Travis Scott Day.” This shouldn’t be confused with his other holiday (yes, he has two) called “Astroworld Day” celebrated on November 18, and named after his 2018 album.

Of course, we do need to keep in mind that this is just a rumor, as there have been no other official announcements or hints indicating that the skin will actually be returning on February 10. So, take this rumor with a grain of salt if you’ve been patiently waiting already.

While we don’t have more than rumors flying around for Scott, there are some new Fortnite x Fall Guys skins and wild new weapons coming to Fortnite soon that have already had images leaked.

A lot of people definitely want to see the Travis Scott skin return, but there are also some players who already have it that would like to see it stay locked, to keep it as a rare, one-time item.

A surprise v15.40.1 update for Fortnite has replaced a popular weapon with a vaulted classic, and also introduced a brand new LTM called Comeback.

There have been plenty of updates throughout Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale Fortnite, bringing in new hunters like Predator, original POIs like Kit’s Cantina, and Exotic Weapons like the healing Chug Cannon.

Usually, these quasi-weekly Fortnite updates get announced in advance by Epic themselves, but not even leakers saw the latest Season 5 hotfix coming, which came as a last-minute reveal from Fortnite’s official Twitter account.

Epic Games
Season 5 of Fortnite just got a surprise v15.40.1 update.

Fortnite unvaults Hand Cannon pistol

The Fortnite v15.40.1 hotfix launched on February 23, 2021, at 10 AM ET, and brought an old favorite out of the vault and back to the loot pool on The Island.

Players can now find the Hand Cannon in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode for the first time in over a year.

In its Rare variant, the weapon deals 75 Damage with a x2.0 headshot multiplier and 60 DPS. It has a fire rate of 0.8, a magazine size of 7, and a reload time of 2.1 seconds.

Hopefully you had a chance to enjoy the Flint-Knock pistol; the explosive weapon was only unvaulted last week in the v15.40 patch update, but it’s just been sent straight back into the vault by Epic to make way for the Hand Cannon.

Fortnite adds new Comeback LTM

Elsewhere, Fortnite players who’ve been craving a new experience from the game will be glad to hear that a brand new LTM called Comeback will be launching later this week in Squads format.

The previously leaked LTM grants each player five lives at the start of the match, and each time they die, the weapons that spawn for them will get progressively rarer, starting with Common and working up to Legendary.

With Season 5 of Fortnite coming to an end on March 15, 2021, it’s expected that there will be just one more update on the way. This will be v15.50, and leakers are predicting it will drop on March 2, 2021.
