It's almost been three years since Fortnite released officially, but sadly, it seemed like there would be no celebration this time around. But thankfully, data miners have made some exciting finds like they have done in the past, and it looks like Epic Games has some free cosmetics on the cards.
A reputable data miner named FortniteFevers has found that at least two weapon skins with celebratory themes will be available sometime soon. The first one is pink and green and looks very similar to a slice of an ice-cream birthday cake.
Fevers also somehow shared an in-game screenshot of the first weapon skin, and it looks fresh.
The second weapon skin has the same green colour, but it also features little specks of pink, purple, orange, red, and yellow that look precisely like confetti.
Like the first one, Fevers also shared a screenshot of the second weapon skin being held by a character in the game, but it looks a little darker.
In the past, Epic Games have given players other party-themed cosmetics including pickaxes shaped like birthday cakes. Some people might argue that these weapons skins aren't as cool, and they might be right. But something is better than nothing, and a party is better than no party at all.
Plus, there's always a chance that something bigger could be happening too. There's been no official word on whether or not that is true, but either way, we'll find out more in the upcoming week since the birthday falls on 26th September.
