Fortnite is adding Praise the Sun and Sharks with Lasers from the looks of leaked skins and emotes

By James Billcliffe, Tuesday, 24 July 2018 17:04 GMT

Trusty dataminers have uncovered another treasure trove of leaked Fortnite skins, emotes, back blings and trails. There doesn’t look to be a distinct theme though – there’s everything from a knightly shield to sharks with frickin’ laser beams.

Other highlights include an homage to the much-loved Praise the Sun gesture from Dark Souls – here called Storm Salutation – and a tiny winking penguin.

Images from the Fortnite Cosmetics Directory in the gallery below will give you a better look at what’s on the horizon.

Epic Games loves to make pop-culture references and memes in their cosmetic items, we recognise a few, but share in the comments if you know more.

Fortnite Leaked Legendary cosmetics:

Laser Chomp:

This has got to be a reference to Dr Evil in the first Austin Powers film. Here’s hoping for ill-tempered mutated sea bass in Season 6.

From left to right, the above are called:

  • Wreck Raider
  • Suntan Specialist

Chug those minis like its an Estus Flask, because now you’ll be able to Praise the Sun in battle royale.

Legend has it that Dark Souls series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki was told to take Solaire of Astora’s famous pose out of the game because it looked silly. Countless memes later, I think we all know they were right to keep it in. Click on the image to show if it’s a white space.

In other Fortnite news, today marks the beginning of Fortnite’s first birthday celebrations, which include a set of challenges that reward you with cosmetics.

The most difficult to complete of these sends you off in search of Birthday Cakes, so we’ve put together a handy guide of all the Fortnite Birthday Cake locations.

This hasn’t gone smoothly for all players though, the Fortnite Birthday challengers are broken for a significant portion of the playerbase (including me…). Epic Games have said that we’ll have to wait until tomorrow for them to show up.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
