Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here are all of the leaked Fortnite Skins and other cosmetics found in the v16.40 update that is now available to download.

Epic Games updates Fortnite usually on a bi-weekly basis and in these updates new files are added to the game. These files can include weapons, items, LTMs (Limited Time Modes), map changes and upcoming cosmetics. The cosmetics that can be added are Skins, Back Blings, Gliders, Pickaxes, Emotes, Loading Screens, Wraps and more.

The official Fortnite Status Twitter account had hinted at what would be coming in this up as they said “Your offering will be applAUded” and “v16.40 pays tribute” for the update. This appears to hint at a Hunger Games collaboration, which is actually in the works and this information was revealed in the Epic Games vs Apple lawsuit. The leaked cosmetics from this update do not show any related to the Hunger Games as yet, but there are some encrypted files.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

We have another Fortnite umbrella, Escapist, to try and add to our collection.

If there’s one thing Fortnite players can’t complain about, it’s the amount of free cosmetics Epic Games provide through collaborations, holiday events, or from any other means. The most recent example of Epic providing free cosmetics is with the Lantern Trials Fortnite event.

Although the first two rewards, a spray and an emoticon, aren’t amazing, the final reward is definitely something players will want to get their hands on. Players can get their hands on the Lantern Glow Wrap and it shouldn’t take much effort. You can read more about that over here.

In today’s new Fortnite update, v16.40, Epic Games have added in some new LTMs along with changing some from chapter 1 with a re-release likely to come before the season ends.

One of the brand new Fortnite LTMs is called Daybreak. It’s definitely unique in comparison to all the other LTMs we’ve had for Fortnite over the years. Players can also grab themselves a free umbrella whilst playing this game along with the loading screen. Here’s what you need to know.

Daybreak Fortnite LTM

The official description for the Daybreak LTM in Fortnite states that players wake up along and unarmed on the cost of the map with no memory on how they’ve arrived. Players will need to search for weapons and ammunition before night fall and creatures begin to roam around the hillsides.

You’ll need to keep an eye out for other players that are stranded on the island as they may prove to be useful allies in order to stay alive as the island becomes more hostile.

During the LTM, you will need to search for parts that you will need in order to repair one of the helicopters that’s crashed on the map that’s located near the middle of the island. If you find the correct parts and have enough fuel, you’ll be able to escape the island before the storm closes on the third night.

There’s two different versions of the Daybreak LTM, one is PvE and the other is PvP. There’s a few different accolades to earn including to escape the island, party up, destroy an escaping choppa, revive, and repair the choppa.

The Daybreak LTM sounds like it could be a fan favorite. Players can also earn themselves the free Escapist Fortnite umbrella by winning a game of the Daybreak LTM.
