The most recent Fortnite Item Shop update has revealed three new limited-time cosmetics: the Paradigm skin, the ‘Welcome’ emote, and the ‘Go Home’ emote.

The Fortnite Season 10 event is incoming, and Epic is getting us ready with some limited-time cosmetics in the Item Shop. the October 10 to October 11 shop now displays three cosmetics leading up to the event this weekend.

The first of the new batch is the Paradigm – a surprising addition to the Seven. We know that the Visitor and the Scientist are only two of seven iterations of the same character. The Paradigm is the fourth.

As the description states, we don’t yet know the allegiance of the Paradigm. Will she be working with the Scientist and the Visitor to get home? Or will she be a thorn in their side as they try to break the loop?

The next two cosmetics are emotes – similar to the “Team Mech” and “Team Monster” emotes we saw ahead of last season’s event. You can choose to welcome the Visitor or tell him to go back where he came from.

The “Go Home” emote seems a bit redundant. Isn’t that what the Visitor is trying to do? He’s been trying to get home since he launched the first rocket.

It looks as though we’ve been viewing the Visitor through the wrong lense this whole time. He appeared during the superhero-themed season, so most fans assumed he was a villain. What if he’s trying to save us rather than destroy us?

The Visitor’s actions will likely usher in a new map and a new plotline for Fortnite. This will probably be the last time we see him – at least for a long time. We should cherish his impact on Fortnite.


What do you think? Is the Visitor trying to help the Fortnite world or is he a menacing force that must be stopped? Let us know in the comments.
