Fortnite: new skins and St. Patrick’s Day items leaked

By Lauren Aitken, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 10:24 GMT

The v8.10 update is now available and dataminers have been hard at work uncovering new skins and secrets in Fortnite.

Aside from the usual skins, backblings and pickaxes found in Fortnite’s files, dataminers have uncovered some details about a St. Patrick’s day in-game event called Going Green. All the loot will now be Common and green, with only Buried Treasure loot being rarer.

We’re not sure what else will be happening, but keep your eyes peeled on March 17 for all things green.

Dataminer Trix also managed to find details of heist challenges that could be related to The Getaway LTM or a future version of it, alongside assets that suggest that the Gravity Stone could be making a comeback.

Fortnite skins

A bunch of new skins were uncovered today. From left to right, they are: Kenji, Kuno, Psion, Axiom, Marimo and Laguna. Laguna and Marimo are potentially part of a new starter pack, so watch this space.

Fortnite backbling

To accompany these new skins, there are some new backbling items available, including a crystal llama available in three different colours.

Fortnite pets

Finally, the pet we deserve: a Fortnite cat with her own throne. We’re not sure when this cool kitty will be available, but you can be we’re all buying it.

Fortnite new weapons

The Flint-Lock Pistol is a common and uncommon weapon coming to Fortnite, that looks like your classic pirate pistol. Sharp-eyed players may have already recognised it from the loading screen image.

Fortnite pickaxes

There were a range of pickaxes discovered, all pretty dangerous looking – especially that happy star.

Fortnite wraps

Four of the latest wraps discovered relate to a deck of cards, one that looks like a pineapple and one that is a very clear nod to St. Paddy himself.
