'Fortnite' Leaked Skins: Data Mine Reveals Criterion, Vertex and a Pair of Detectives

It took a day longer than usual, but Fortnite has released patch v4.5. Data miners, who scour the game's code looking for new features rolling out over the coming weeks and months, have struck (skin) gold. Two Epic Buddies, the premier German Fortnite code crackers, are at it again this week with the reveal of nine new skins, more than a dozen accessories and a brand new "Drum Gun."

A traditional Tommy Gun works perfectly with the crime fighters and shady criminals coming as skins during this patch.

With Season 5 just weeks away, fans are already super hyped about what's coming next in Fortnite. Two Epic Buddies are convinced that the rocket that's been slowly counting down is going to do some serious damage to the map we all love (and hate).

Oh yeah and the rocket will destroy a big chunk of the map for sure. pic.twitter.com/MM9KoqDWUw
