FORTNITE hasn’t just released a boatload of new skins this morning, they’ve also added some new styles to some of your favourite skins from past seasons.
Fortnite released its new update this morning and on top of the boatload of new features and official 8.10 patch notes we also saw what we normally see with every update.
You know, what we mean. New weapons, future loading screens, new LTMS coming to the game and even some new cosmetic bits and pieces.
The most prominent new leak though is almost always the new leaked skins. And today hasn’t disappointed.
However, aside from these new skins, found in the new files by dataminers, Epic Games had an extra surprise in store. Well, not technically, the store (although we’ll bet they’ll end up in the item shop soon).
On top of those completely new Fortnite skins for the game, dataminers also found some new styles for some old favourites.
“In the v8.00 files, the Waypoint skin had another style option added without the mask, but it wasn’t unlocked for players yet,” explained Fortnite Insider.
“However, in the v8.01 update, the unmasked Waypoint style was available to those who had the skin in their locker.”
“Since the Waypoint was given an unmasked style, players were asking for the Elite Agent to receive the same treatment with a new style, and it looks like Epic have obliged.”
So pretty soon, players might notice they have some new maskless skin styles for the some of the games most popular Fortnite skins.
At the time of writing dataminers have located and leaked new selectable styles for the OG Renegade Raider, Overtaker, and Whiteout skins which can be seen above and below.
It’s not entirely clear when these new selectable styles will be made available and unlocked by Epic Games, but what we do know is that they’ll be free.
And that’s nothing you can really grumble at.
In the meantime stay tuned for more info on these new leaked skins and remind yourself of the games new features with the topline details of today’s new update, just below.
