The NFL 2022 preseason is in full swing, and just a couple of weeks before the regular season begins, Patrick Mahomes has been announced as a new Fortnite skin. National Football League crossovers are nothing new to the Battle Royale, but this is the first time we'll see the likeness of another player.

Pat Mahomes will get his own Icon Series with two entirely outfits for NFL fans to pick up. The good news is you won't have to wait long at all to pick up the new cosmetics before the regular season begins. There's even a Cup to give players the chance at earning the Icon Series skin early.

Just a day after the initial announcement, everyone will be able to pick up the Pat Mahomes Icon Series skin on August 24. At 8 pm ET on that Wednesday, both of his Icon Series outfits will become available. The Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback will have one main outfit and a second one based on Ketchup.

Patrick Mahomes' main Icon Series outfit is a mix between athletic gear and gladiator armor. His hoodie and sweatpants are apparent in every style, but there are also gladiator parts that represent his own logo with Adidas. Below you can find the items in both outfit packs.

Patrick Mahomes Outfit

  • Standard Outfit: Mahomes in hoodie and sweatpants
  • Gladiator Mindset Style: Shades on and arm enhanced.

  • Gameday Gladiator Style: Fear not a sack or pass rush. Contains the gladiator helmet.

  • Gridiron Gladiator Back Bling: Suit up for battle. Backpack with two axes.

  • Snap Axes Pickaxe: Expertly handled. (Glows red when swung!)

  • Endzone Elite Wrap: Gear for your gear.

  • Showtime Emote: Dusts himself off and flexes one arm.

  • Saucy Style Outfit: Mahomes is in a ketchup-themed suit and shades.
  • The Good Stuff Back Bling: Ketchup bottle with tomato head on the label.

There is a third item for the Saucy Style that is tied to the Patrick Mahomes Cup on August 23. Playing in this Zero Build Squads tournament will give everyone the opportunity to earn some of the new cosmetics like the Mahomes outfit and the Secret Sauce Emoticon.

It'll be difficult to earn the full Patrick Mahomes rewards during the Cup, but earning the Secret Sauce emote is much more manageable. As long as you earn at least eight points with your team, the emote is yours. Otherwise, you can purchase all of the new NFL Icon Series items the next day.
