Fortnite's New Skins Leaked Ahead Of Halloween Event
Spooky skins are coming your way this season.
Fortnite is getting spooky through the newly launched Season 6 with its Darkness Rises theme, but it looks like it will be adding some special Halloween-themed cosmetics as well. A new set of skins, back bling, gliders, and pickaxes have been leaked, giving a look at what's presumably to come at some point during October.
From the Twitter account FNBRLeaks come our first looks at the skins Hay Man (Male) and Straw Ops (Female); Hay Nest and Birdhovel back bling; Dark Glyph and Field Wraith gliders; and Thunder Crash and Harvester pickaxes. Plus, it provides a look at the new T-Pose, which goes especially well with the Hay Man skin. You can see them all in the tweets below.
So far Epic hasn't announced any special Halloween events, so we're not sure yet just how you'll earn these new cosmetic items--they could be sold like any others or tied to specific challenges, like the birthday event items released this summer. Whatever the case, these join a whole host of new Season 6 skins, which include some monster-themed ones like the Dire Wolf. That one changes as you level up, becoming more and more like a werewolf.
If you need some help earning this season's skins, check out our challenge guide. Or you can prepare to dance the night away in an upcoming limited-time mode. It'll be a graveyard smash. In the meantime, you can check out the new 6.01 update--it add a new type of trap for Battle Royale alongside a handful of other things. Alternatively, we've got a look at Fortnite Halloween costumes, which are sure to be all the rage this year.
