The Lil Whip Skin was released in the Fortnite Shop recently and comes with the Sno Cone Back Bling, which could provide a disadvantage to players wearing it. Here’s why.
The Lil Whip skin was leaked in the v7.40 update and was first released in the Fortnite Shop on 17th February for 1,500 V-Bucks as it is of Epic rarity. The skin comes with the Sno Cone back bling and players have noticed that it is reactive, although it has not been labelled as reactive.
Reddit user JeffreyTheSharkPSN has shown that the amount of ice in the cone is dependant on how much health the player has, i.e. if players have full health, the cone will be full and if the players health is low, the cone will have little ice, as can be seen in the image below. When you heal, the cone gets filled again from the mouth.
This can be a huge disadvantage for players that wear this back bling as enemies will be able to see if you have low health easily and push. However, it can be argued that enemies wouldn’t really see your back bling unless they have already engaged in a fight with you and so it wouldn’t make much of a difference.
The Back Bling could show your teammates that you have low health and need heals without having to communicate, so it could help in that way.
What do you think of the Back Bling? Do you think it provides a disadvantage or do you think it doesn’t make a difference? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
