Every Fortnite patch brings in a some leaked content, but v9.40 brought in a tidal wave of cosmetics that will be released in the future. Data-miners have manged to get some exclusive video & images of these unreleased products.
The v9.40 patch brought plenty of live content, but the best details have been hidden deep in the file structure. Fortunately, the data-mining community got to work immediately with dozens of new unreleased products to show off.

In our routine round up of unreleased cosmetics, we quickly ran through some of these, but leakers have since then gotten video of many of the cosmetics. We’ll go through and take a look at what the community’s been able to dig up. Beware, there’s a lot!
Fortnite World Cup Skins & Back Bling
Epic Games will releasing exclusive skins and gear for the Fortnite World Cup. With new spectate options coming to all platforms for the event, these cosmetics could be linked to watching the event from in-game rather than playing yourself.
As of July 17, it looks like there will be a male (Fishstick) and female FWC skin as well as a Back Bling cape with the World Cup logo.
The leaker also got an up close picture of the Ramirez FWC variant.
Additionally, the Banner image for the in-game Fortnite World Cup shows off the Fishstick FWC skin. This image was also received from ShiinaBR.
Courtesy of Lucas7yoshi, we also have a first image of the FWC back bling. We don’t yet know how you’ll be able to earn these items, but we’re sure that info will come out a few days before the event.

Six Leaked Fortnite Outfits – Item Shop
With v9.40 leaks also came a fresh batch of six never before seen skins. These aren’t tied to any particular event, so we presume they’ll appear in the Item Shop within the next few weeks or months. Remember some skins float around in the game files for a long time before release, so you might have to wait for some of these.
As with the FWC skins, ShiinaBR obtained some in-game footage of the new skins.

Banner Brigade Fortnite Skins
Banners in Fortnite have traditionally been an afterthought to most players and these cosmetics are generally written off as ‘trash’ to fill in the Battle Passes. No more!
Epic has realized that Banners need some way of being better represented, so they’re creating the Banner Brigade series of skins. Each of these skins will take the colors and image of your current Banner when entering BR matches. Finally! We’ve been waiting for something like this forever.
ShiinaBR provided some initial pictures of the skins. They come in both male and female variants. The method by which we can unlock these is unknown at this time.
Male Banner Brigade Skins
Female Banner Brigade Skins
Doggus vs. Cattus Event – Mecha Skin
The Doggus vs. Cattus event will take place on July 20. The hype around the event has been building (quite literally) for a long time now and we’re excited beyond reason. Seriously, we’re shaking. Or is that the Cattus monster’s footsteps causing earthquakes?
Anyway, along with the event, we’ll getting a ‘Mecha’ skin which resembles the now completed Doggus robot. It’s an amazing blend of different Fortnite themes topped off with the Cuddle Team Leader’s head.
@s1l0x managed to get a little bit of footage of the Mecha skin using their data-mining wizardry.
The skin could be a reward for attending the event or a tie-in Item Shop purchase after the battle’s done and dusted. We’ll all get to see it in-game in a few short days.
Revel, Reckless, & Business Hips Emotes
Alright, we’ve finally gotten to the end of this massive list of new cosmetic leaks. Last, but not least, data miners took some clips of the three leaked Emotes coming to the Item Shop. Of course, we don’t know the release dates for these, but you can expect them in the following weeks.
To us, none of these seem to be directly linked to any event, so they will probably be classified as normal Item Shop releases.
Again, ShiinaBR provides the video via Twitter:

So, what are your thoughts on the leaked cosmetics shown above? You better add a few locks to your wallet and throw away the key if you are expecting to make it through that onslaught without spending a dime. Epic Games most certainly has returned and their passion for creating cosmetics hasn’t been toned down. If anything, it seems like Epic’s only getting started.

Epic Games has introduced Omni Chips in Fortnite Season 2 which players can use to customize the new Omni Sword.

Now, Fortnite Season 2 introduces Omni Chips. This seasonal currency can be used by players to unlock customization options for the Omni Sword.
Here’s how to unlock the Omni Sword and where to find Omni Chips in Fortnite Season 2.
Where to find Omni Chips in Fortnite Season 2
In order to start collecting Omni Chips, players first need to unlock the Omni Sword Pickaxe. This is on page one of the Battle Pass and can be purchased for 7 Battle Stars.
Now that players have the sword, it’s time to start collecting Omni Chips. Each week, players will be given a new set of Omni Sword quests that reward them with Omni Chips once completed.
The quests are as simple as visiting specific locations and collecting Omni Chips. The maps below will show where that week’s chips are located starting with week 1.
Week 1 Omni Chip locations
Collect Omni chips at Greasy Grove, Logjam Lumberyard, and Mighty Monument:
Week 2 Omni Chip locations

When Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends, Season 3 start date
Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts. The season is off to a heated start, and it’s only going to get more intense.
Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.
Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.
Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.
When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?
Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.
This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.
When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?
New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.
That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.
Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?
The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!
The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.
What Season is Fortnite on?
Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.
There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.
For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

How to unlock Marvel’s Prowler in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2
Fortnite Season 2 introduced Marvel’s Prowler to the Battle Royale, and players can unlock him via the Battle Pass and a few challenges.
Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.
Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.
The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.
Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
Unlocking Prowler in Fortnite Season 2
As mentioned before, Prowler was locked behind a time gate. Players can unlock him by completing special challenges starting on April 19.
