An 8-year old Fortnite fan may be in for a treat if it turns out that Epic is using the skin concept he thought up in the game.
A couple of months ago, the father of an 8-year old Fortnite fan posted his son’s concept for a chicken-themed skin called Chicken Trooper over on Reddit, which was later prettied up by redditor Etsyturtle2 and reimagined as Tender Defender, and it looks like it may just be coming to the game.
The site also posted a screenshot from the Lonely Lodge Watchtower showing feathers strewn across the floor.
This is most likely the set of the Tender defender skin, it doesn’t have backbling or rarity yet, we will need to wait until it gets released on the item shop #Fortnite #FortniteBattleRoyale pic.twitter.com/hkfkgy1IzA

We’ll have to wait for the skin to drop to see if Epic will credit its pint-sized fan for the idea, but for the moment all signs are pointing to one happy little chappy.
