Among many new assets added in Fortnite’s Season 7 v7.00 update, textures for a Gingerbread Man Back Bling were discovered. It seems that this may be yet another Pet coming to the game.
Pets are dynamically animated Back Bling that were added in Season 6 of Fortnite. Cats, Dogs, Lizards, and other Pets have been added. It seems that Epic Games would like to bring a Gingerbread Man to this list to spread some holiday spirit.
An accompanying model / mesh is not yet available to go alongside this texture, so we don’t have an accurate representation of what it will look like in-game at the moment.
This cosmetic item has yet to be officially announced or revealed. Some players are speculating that it will return alongside a Gingerbread Man Skin to celebrate the holidays.
While this is a plausible theory, nothing is set in stone and it’s possible that this item is cut content and will never release.
Sing a slaying song tonight.
The Merry Marauder Skin has yet to return after its initial release which was 314 days ago at the time of writing. Many fans are sure to be upset at its likely inevitable return as it’s considered an OG skin.
Stay tuned to FortniteINTEL for more information and updates regarding the Gingerbread Man Back Bling. Patch v7.01 is set to release at 4AM ET on Tuesday, December 11th, 2018 – it’s possible that we may see more of this Pet in there.
