Skilled Fortnite fans with a knack for dataming have been regularly digging through the game’s patches revealing upcoming content before it gets publicly released. This week, two particular fans working together have dug through the game’s code and uncovered a whole slew of Halloween content potentially set to be added in the next update. In a Reddit thread created yesterday, Redditor u/Mystxc1 revealed his discoveries which include Halloween-themed cosmetic items and new emotes!
Here’s a big list of the new content we’ll be seeing in-game soon:
“Sprinkler” – AthenaDance:eid_sprinkler
“Electro Swing” – AthenaDance:eid_electroswing
“Get Psyched” – AthenaDance:eid_powerup
“Scourge” – cid_240_athena_commando_f_plague
“Squashman” – cid_244_athena_commando_m_pumpkinsuit
“Onesie” – cid_245_athena_commando_f_durrburgerpjs
“Bullseye” – cid_242_athena_commando_f_bullseye
“Hollowhead” – cid_243_athena_commando_m_pumpkinslice
“Plague” – cid_241_athena_commando_m_plague
“Skull Ranger” – cid_246_athena_commando_f_grave
“TBD (Plague Glider)” – glider_id_084_plague
“TBD (Skull Trooper Glider)” – glider_id_085_skulltrooper
“TBD (Skull Trooper Pickaxe)” – pickaxe_id_109_skulltrooper
“Herald’s Wand” – pickaxe_id_107_plague
“Carver” – “pickaxe_id_108_pumpkinslice”
“Dismal Cape”: bid_127_plaguemale
“Mouldering Cloak”: bid_129_pumpkinslice
While images for these cosmetics haven’t been yet patched into the game, the duo of @MystxcLeaks and @The1Jaren have found what the item shop will look like in the next content update for October 11/12. Have a sneak peek with the below pic.
Given the info we have so far, it seems highly likely that the Skull Trooper skin is going to be making a return for this year’s Halloween event. Mysticxc noted in a tweet that unlike last year, Skull Trooper might come with the Ghost Portal Back Bling that was discovered to be added to the game some time ago, but has yet to make an appearance. Here’s the original tweet with a side-by-side comparison of the two.
What do you think? Looks like the two fit well together.
Again, all of this information is merely speculative. We’ll be getting the official patch update sometime this week where we’ll know for sure what to expect for the 2018 Fortnite Halloween event. Stay tuned!
