This week brought with it a big new patch, and that included a lot of hidden skins that various dataminers were able to unearth, including my two favorites, the forever dueling Lucas7Yoshi and HYPEX.
The skins are all below, and it’s not clear when they will arrive. It might be some time in the next two weeks before season 10 starts, or it could be after season 10, though I doubt that any of these are the actual battle pass skins, as those never leak out ahead of time.
Here they are:
Once upon a time this was a rabbit-themed skin called Gemini, but somehow it got changed over time to be a little bit more generic. I do wonder how these decisions are made by Epic? “Space robot rabbits? Don’t be ridiculous!”
Not sure if this is the final name, but yes, the giant robot is getting its own miniaturized skin. I assume this will be a store offering and not just something given away to people that participate in the event, but that remains to be seen. The event is Saturday, so it’s possible that’s when this will end up going live.
Epic just makes sort of generic, odd skins to go in the common and rare tiers, and this is one of those, in keeping with the futuristic theme of the season to a certain extent, so this probably drops before season 9 is over.
There are two World Cup skins coming that we know of, one human, one fish. I feel like Epic is probably going to end up doing more than just these two for this, but who knows. Not…amazing.
Alright now this one I find very cool. Supposedly an Epic, Copper Wasp is what happens when Ryu meets…a Gundam? Not sure, but I wanted.
He also has a rare skin counterpart, a robotic schoolgirl which of course I can already imagine is going to be a best-seller.
A whole host of new styles to existing skins are coming, and some of these may end up being rewards for Overtime challenges which should be going live shortly.
