Fortnite 6.20 LEAKED Skins: NEW Season 6 shop items TODAY? Skull Trooper? Vampires? (Pic: EPIC GAMES)
Fortnite update 6.20 is coming later this morning, with servers going down and matchmaking temporarily offline as Epic Games goes about releasing it on PS4, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch and mobile.
Official patch notes will come when the game goes offline at 9am BST but unlike most weeks, we already have some leaked info which hints at some new skins and one big potential return.
Usually, we would see skins leaked by users following the release of the update – from the likes of @FortniteBR and @TwoEpicBuddies – but we already have a few previous leaks that we're waiting to see go live.
It's possible that we could see these skins and cosmetics, including new skins, gliders and back bling in the new update out today.
Following the release of the v6.10 patch notes dataminers uncovered a series of skins and cosmetics yet to be added to the game.
This leak is very similar to that of the original Halloween skin leaks. It was Twitter users and leakers @ShiinaBR and @Hypexleaks who uncovered this new set of upcoming cosmetics and they suggest they could be vampire themed.
Which is certainly in keeping with the season and time of year.
The two skins found are called “Sanctum” (a male skin) as well as a female option called "Vampire".
There are no images for these new skins yet, but we suspect they could be included with today's new update.

RED SKULL TROOPER
One skin that's previously leaked which we're waiting on, is a Red variant for the infamous skull trooper skin.
Last week, on October 11, notorious Fortnite leaker @FNBRLeaks revealed another version of the Skull Trooper outfit that had yet to be released.
Based on the files which have been shared, this looks like a Red version of the current Skull Trooper skin, which recently received a variety of colour variants with it's re-released in Fortnite update 6.02.
Some players had been claiming that the leaked Red Variant for Skull Trooper was actually just the purple version, but FortniteIntel followed up to clarify with @FNBRLeaks.
"Weve directly contacted FNBRLeaks and they have kindly provided us images containing comparisons for both the purple and red versions of Skull Trooper. We can say that it is very likely well see this red variant.

In addition to the skull trooper, we could also see the famous GHOUL skin return to the Fortnite item shop too.
Another Fortnite leaker, @Fortrisen, has predicted since the start of Season 6 some of the major skins which would be returning. And the leaker has been on point predicting the return of Tomatohead, Ravage, the Easter skins and more.
The leak also claimed well before season 6 that we would see the return of Chomp Sr, Wreck Raider and Skull Trooper.
And currently, the only skins remaining are Ghoul Trooper and Valkyrie.
It's also interesting that the Fortnitemares teaser images have hinted at a possible male version of the Ghoul Trooper. Which makes sense, since we got a female Skull trooper skin when that skin returned earlier this month.
