As usual, the Fortnite v12.50 update gave dataminers the opportunity to delve into the game files and see what cosmetics will be coming out in the coming weeks. A starter pack, new skins and more are on the way.
New Starter Pack
The leaked Yellow Jacket skin is thought to be part of an upcoming starter pack. Usually priced at $ 4.99 USD, these kits are an affordable way to get a fresh loadout for your locker, as well as some bonus V-Bucks.
This set will include the Yellow Jacket Outfit, Backstabber Back Bling, Venom Blade Pickaxe and a complimentary 600 V-Bucks.
All Leaked Cosmetics
Popular Fortnite leaker @HYPEX also posted an image of all the other cosmetics found following the v12.50 patch. Check out all of the skins, back blings, harvesting tools, wraps and emotes below:

Finally, further leaks suggest that you will soon be able to purchase XP directly from the Fortnite Item Shop. Exactly how this will work isn’t yet clear. It could be that you buy a booster which allows you to earn XP at a higher rate, or potentially you can just grab a certain amount outright.
This is likely to give fans who don’t have the time to grind to a high enough level a chance to get their hands on all the skins and variants before the end of the season.
