New, Unleaked Fortnite Item Shop Yule Trooper Skin is the Christmas Skull Trooper


Epic Games have released a new Fortnite skin that wasn’t leaked by dataminers, Yule Trooper. Today’s shop also includes the Branch Basher Pickaxe.

Today has been quite a day. The Fortnite Star Wars event was a success for the most part with a number of players experiencing login issues due to the amount of players flooding the servers looking to experience the event.

The Star Wars Fortnite challenges went live right after the event concluded, and completing them grants players with some free Star Wars cosmetic rewards.

Dataminers also managed to leak two impressive upcoming Fortnite Star Wars skins, Kylo Ren and Zorii Bliss. There’ll also be a couple of Star Wars themed gliders that’ll be released at some point and leakers also believe there’ll be a Fortnite lightsaber pickaxe, how exciting.

Much to the surprise of the Fortnite playerbase, Epic Games released the Yule Trooper skin along with the Branch Basher pickaxe.

To no surprise, the Yule Trooper Fortnite skin looks very similar to the Skull Trooper skin, but this skin obviously has a Christmas outfit on. Players were replying to the tweet announcing the new Yule Trooper skin that it should have been a new style, but it has enough changes for me to warrant a new skin.

Here’s a look at the Yule Trooper Fortnite skin and the Branch Basher pickaxe:

Yule Trooper is of Epic rarity with the description “The holiday spirit is in your bones”. The Branch Basher skin is an Epic pickaxe with the description “It’s time to branch out”.
