Fortnite Season 7 kicked off on Thursday, December 6, and dataminers are already hard at work scouring the update files for clues as to what may be coming next in the popular title.
While leakers are always on the lookout for cosmetic items, they can often find new weapons or consumables that are set to come to the game in the near future.
And according to Fortnite leaker FortTory, we may be getting a new consumable item added to Fortnite in the near future, as a new item was found in the Consumables folder of the V7.00 update files.
Very little is known about the item, other than it’s name, with the item given the title of ‘BigPoppy_Pop’ as it’s file name in the Athena folders.

While it’s unknown what this item could be, some Fortnite fans believe it will be a bigger version of the game’s classic Shield Potion, which grants the drinker 50 shield points to help protect them.
Some believe this item will slot in between the Shield Potion and the Chug Jug, which gives the drinker full health and shield, by giving the consumer 100 Shield Points, but not touching their health.
However, just because the item has been found in the files doesn’t mean it will ever make it into the game, as Epic Games have added items to the files only to never use them.
Fortnite fans have already gotten plenty of new things to sink their teeth into, with the introduction of three new Points of Interest, alongside the new Iceberg biome.
Also featured in the game are new methods of transportation, including ziplines spread around the map, and the new X-4 Stormwing planes that can be found scattered across the island.
What do you think the new consumable will be? Let us know!
