Fortnite Leak Reveals New Cosmetic Items, Including an Homage to Our Fallen Burger Friend

The latest patch for Fortnite is now here and just like usual, players couldn't wait to see what other surprises lie within the game's hidden files. As with previous updates, dedicated players have found new cosmetic items that will be on the way, including a sweet new Galaxy skin, a major throwback to the 80s, and even more panda goodness!

According to our friends over at the new revamped FortniteBR Twitter account, we've got tons of new items coming our way and they've definitely got a mixed theme. One thing that we can't help but to love a bit is the homage to our fallen burger mascot that fell when the rifts took over the map leading into season 5. Gone, but not forgotten ... and now, wearable. So that's something.

The aerobics emote would be perfect with the 80s theme. Because honestly? Who hasn't had their inner Jane Fonda moment when fighting for that Victory Royale? Oh, just me? Moving on ...

Since this is a leak and not a confirmed announcement from Epic Games, take it all with a grain of salt. That being said, Shield One has accurately datamined every cosmetic item since day 1, season 1 so it wouldn't be too far fetched to get excited if one catches your fancy. Hopefully the first round of new cosmetics will go live later today when the item shop resets at 19:00 central time! I'm interested in that 80s one ... I keep saying it, but those are some good vibes, man.
