Skull Trooper’s Return in the Fortnite Item Shop Allegedly Leaked

Skull Trooper’s Return in the Fortnite Item Shop

It appears that this year’s spooky season will see Skull Trooper’s return to the Fortnite Shop. Leaks have suggested that there will be a shop rotation that features the Skull Trooper skin alongside long-awaited back bling Ghost Portal.

As with any leaks, this information is subject to change. However, @The1Jaren found a version of the Fortnite shop that shows the Skull Trooper skin. As we enter the spookiest month, it makes sense for the fan favourite to make a return.

Alongside The1Jaren, leaker @Mystxcleaks found game files that suggest that we will get a pickaxe and glider to go with the Skull Trooper skin. Though they don’t appear to have a name just yet, the files show them as ‘pickaxe_id_109_skulltrooper’ and ‘glider_id_085_skulltrooper’ respectively.

In addition to this, we should be seeing some Halloween-themed skins entering the shop this month. The skins we can expect to see are as follows:

  • Scourge (female) – ‘cid_240_athena_commando_f_plague’
  • Plague (male) – ‘cid_241_athena_commando_m_plague’
  • Bullseye (female) – ‘cid_242_athena_commando_f_bullseye’
  • Hollowhead (male) – ‘cid_243_athena_commando_m_pumpkinslice’
  • Squashman (male) – ‘cid_244_athena_commando_m_pumpkinsuit’
  • Onesie (female) – ‘cid_245_athena_commando_f_durrburgerpjs’
  • Skull Ranger (female) – ‘cid_246_athena_commando_f_grave’

The Skull Ranger skin may well be a female version of the male Skull Trooper skin. It also appears that we will be getting two pumpkin themed skins as well as a Durr Burger themed onesie skin! However, there are no images found of these skins yet so we will have to wait for the next large game update.

As well as the Skull Trooper’s return, the dataminers also discovered five new Emotes, three new Pickaxes and two new Gliders in the game files.

  • Headbanger – ‘eid_headbang’
  • Sprinkler – ‘eid_sprinkler’
  • Behold! – ‘eid_lookatthis’
  • Electro Swing – ‘eid_electroswing’
  • Get Psyched – ‘eid_powerup’
  • Herald’s Wand – ‘pickaxe_id_107_plague’
  • Carver – ‘pickaxe_108_pumpkinslice’
  • Unnamed Skull Trooper
  • Unnamed Plague – ‘glider_id_084_plague’
  • Unnamed Skull Trooper

From this information, it appears we will be getting a full set for the ‘Plague’ themed skins and at least a pickaxe for the potential pumpkin skins.
