'Fortnite' To Get David S. Pumpkins-Inspired Skin For Halloween

Quite a few new Fortnite cosmetic items leaked earlier this morning when the latest update went live and we must have been low on coffee because how on earth did we miss the David S. Pumpkins nod?!

For those that may not know, David S. Pumpkins (seen above) is a fictional character that made its debut on Saturday Night Live back in 2016 played by Tom Hanks. The "any questions" character instantly became a hit - and apparently with the folks over at Epic Games as well!

You can see the full list of cosmetic items that leaked earlier right here, which piggybacks off an earlier leak with the "Hay Man" skins, as well as the awesome new Skull Trooper challenges available to earn the Ghost Portal Back Bling! You can check out those for yourself right here, including the new Pickaxes and Gliders as well.

We're sure even more cosmetic items will be found shortly and we honestly can't wait to see how else this studio gets into the Halloween spirit! It's looking great so far.
