Epic Games have been encrypting Fortnite skin and cosmetics files lately but it seems they accidently leaked an upcoming Fortnite skin.
Epic Games have been encrypting Fortnite skins and cosmetics for a couple of months now in order to keep some of the upcoming cosmetics a surprise. There were a large number of files they had added in the v7.10 update, some of which have already been released in the item shop. These cosmetics incluse the Fishstick skin, Glitter and more but there are still a few files that remain encrypted.
When the item shop is updated, the official Fortnite Instagram account showcase all of the Fortnite skins and cosmetics available in the item shop for the day. It seems as though they added a skin that wasn’t available in the item shop and you can see the skin below:
This can be viewed on the Fortnite Instagram story but can be deleted at any time. The umbrella symbol shows the skin will be a Battle Royale skin, however looking at the item shop, it appears this was most certainly an error.
There is currently no name, rarity or any other information regarding the skin available at this time but we’ll keep you updated with any new information.
