Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 – Mando in the new lobby (pic: Twitter)
Season 5 of Fortnite has just begun and already dataminers are all over it, revealing the new skins, cosmetics, weapons and extras.
Now that Fortnite Chapter Season 5 is live players will already be working their way through the new Battle Pass, but if you want to know all its secrets then dataminers have already discovered them.
Obviously, the Mandalorian is the headliner for the new pass, and so far the only licensed character for this season, but there’s also the other hunter characters to unlock, who are all original Fortnite creations.
You can see them all in the Season 5 trailers but datmainers have put a name to Kondor, Mancake, Mave, Menace, Lexa, and Reece – as well as discovering images of their cosmetics.
Mancake the fighting Flapjack has some of the most peculiar, including a range of moustaches and bandanas, but there’s also fun extras for all the characters that don’t affect the gameplay.
On top of that is the expected armour, backpacks, gliders, pickaxes, and shields you get in any new season, including the Mandalorian’s disintegration sniper rifle.
As with any Fortnite season more items and characters are certain to be added as Season 5 continues, especially as it takes place over Christmas and there’s nothing really Christmassy in the game yet.
But Epic Games has also hinted that the current hunters are only the first wave and that more will be added over time, perhaps including more licensed characters like Mando.
