Today, Epic Games officially introduced a new burst assault rifle (in Epic and Legendary) by way of Update 4.2 to the sandbox survival title Fortnite that also added a new healing item for players to utilize as well. While these objects are surely becoming more popular with fans after each use, the studio still has plenty more items on the way with its contents for Season 4, as a recent datamine has uncovered a slew of new cosmetics such as fresh skins, gliders, and pickaxes.
As seen in the images below, datamining of Fortnite‘s patch v4.2.0 has uncovered new superhero-esque outfits such as the Toxic Trooper and Moisty Merman skins, gliders like Meltdown and Triumph, and pickaxes dubbed Director’s Cut and Autocleave, along with a host of others. What’s more is that players will be privy to fresh pieces of back bling over the course of the coming weeks, as well as several new emotes.
As of now, Fortnite currently has a wide range of different cosmetics that will help players stand out from one another in the free-to-play Battle Royale portion of the hybrid construction shooter title, with Epic Games having recently incorporated the a new Abstrakt graffiti artist skin and supplementary Roller pickaxe. Naturally, though, variety is the spice of life, and all of the fresh wares shown above will surely grab fans’ attention.
Of course, while Fortnite‘s recently datamined skins, gliders, and pickaxes are going to be great additions to the sandbox survival title, many are likely keeping their focus trained on the possibility of new modes. Now that the crossover Infinity Gauntlet mode has been retired, fans at least have a slightly tweaked version of 50v50 to be chosen, but it’s safe to say fans will be hungry for more gameplay diversity at some point down the line.
Fortnite is available now in early access for iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
