More Fortnite Mandalorian Cosmetic Items Reportedly Leak


by in Fortnite | Dec, 7th 2020

Fortnite Season 5 is well underway now. Players can check out everything that this bounty hunter-themed season has to offer. As always, there are some surprises and secrets that Epic Games is keeping, like some possible new Fortnite Mandalorian items.

New Fortnite Mandalorian Item Reportedly Leaks


Or, at least, they would be kept secret if there weren’t some leakers around to reveal what is coming next in Fortnite. That is what happened recently as a supposed Fortnite leaker revealed that there is at least one new Fortnite Mandalorian cosmetic item coming to the game soon.

Of course, if you are prone to disliking spoilers for Fortnite, you should probably turn around now and save yourself the surprise for later. Otherwise, this particular leak isn’t super specific as we don’t know what the item will be just yet. 

The leak comes from the Reddit user SmearReddit, who posted to the Fortnite Leaks subreddit about the item recently discovered in the game’s backend. In a recent smaller update for the game this past weekend, the Reddit user reportedly discovered the leaked cosmetic item. 

However, there is something that you should keep in mind about this particular leak. That is that it comes from someone who is not verified or reputable in the community yet. They are an unproven Reddit leaker who we haven’t seen before like some of the others we cover on here.

New Item Appears to Be a Mando Pickaxe


With that out of the way, this particular leak has to do with a new Fortnite Mandalorian item reportedly coming to the game soon. The new item wasn’t shown but seems to be a pickaxe that is themed around the Star Wars bounty hunter this season. 

The pickaxe has a placeholder image in the backend that does not show what it will look like and has a “to be determined” date and info about it. We know, though, the supposed placeholder name for the pickaxe is “CosmosWeapon,” which could hint at some things.

We know that this pickaxe is named after Cosmos, which happens to be the codename given to the Mandalorian skin in the backend before it was formally revealed and announced. As such, it makes it clear that this is likely a pickaxe that Mando would use in the game. 

From here on out, this is the part where things get a bit spoilery for The Mandalorian Disney+ TV show that is airing its current second season right now. If you are not caught up on the show at this time and do not want to know anything about it at all, this is your chance to turn around now.

Pickaxe Is Likely the New Beskar Staff


We will also discuss the future of the show and what could happen soon on it. As such, this is your final warning to turn back now before we hop into some spoilers territory. As we know, there are a lot of Mando-themed items in the game currently. 

You can get his skin at tier one in the paid battle pass. You can get emoticons, emotes, stickers, loading screens, and much more throughout the pass. The pass even ends on the Mandalorian by giving him a new skin style and the ability to unlock the Baby Yoda pet item. 

If that isn’t enough, there is the special Beskar armor that Mando wears in the show that you can unlock by completing the Beskar challenges that we covered recently. But there is no Mando pickaxe that we have in the game currently, so this is missing.

Likely, Epic Games didn’t want to spoil the show for those who aren’t caught up yet, so they left the pickaxe out for now. If you are caught up with Season 2, you know that there is a new weapon that he gets that could easily be this pickaxe that will be added to the game soon. 

New Pickaxe Could Be Something Else Entirely


He received a Beskar staff/spear in a recent episode that would make perfect sense as a pickaxe weapon in Fortnite battle royale. But given how recently he got it in the show that is still ongoing at the time of writing this, it is likely that Epic didn’t want to spoil that in the current season yet.

Everything else in the game revolves around stuff known for about a year now since Season 1, like his completed Beskar armor and so on, but this stuff is brand new. How you unlock the staff or whatever pickaxe it will be is unknown for now, but it will likely be available in the item shop since the pass is set for now. 

However, there is one other possibility for what the Fortnite Mandalorian pickaxe item will be, which is heavy speculation. The pickaxe is in the backend for a reason. Usually, items will show up in the files. We know what they will look like from leaks. 

But this one is heavily hidden for a reason and could mean that there is something that hasn’t even shown up in The Mandalorian show just yet that will be the pickaxe item. This item, of course, would be the Darksaber that Moff Gideon has at this time. It implies that we could see Mando take it from him before the season ends.

But that is speculation, for now, so we will have to wait and see. Stay tuned for more info about what the new Mandalorian pickaxe item will be soon.
