Fortnite Season 5 is updating as we speak but we already know about some of the new Fortnite skins, back bling, gliders and pickaxes heading our way. Progressive skins are back, and possible bigger this season so lets take a look at what we've got.
- Fortnite is getting its very first vehicle, and all your squad can ride inside
- Fortnite's cinematic for season 5 has leaked, and it's rift-tastic
Here are the first Fornite Season 5 new skins
This is the current splash screen when you load the game:
There's no names yet but we've got a soldier, biker, some viking themed ones, the graffiti kid from the Fortnite season 5 cinematic trailer , some sort of special agent and what looks like a coastguard.
Another Fortnite Season 5 teaser also gives us a look at this scary looking guy who appears to be one of the new progressive skins, probably tied to completing challenges.
It looks like the Kitsune mask wearing graffiti guy and, I'm going to call him the Bone Wizard, are two of the progressive skins, most likely these are linked to the Fortnite Battle Pass challenges, much like Omega and Carbide were in season 4.

It also looks like there will be some Lucha Libre skins, more graffiti types and a freakin' shark. Left or right orientation as yet unconfirmed.

Fortnite season 5 pickaxes and gliders include balloons, viking axes and speed boats

Looking at the Fortnite season 5 gliders and pick axes really starts to solidify some of the Fortnite season 5 skin themes. The boat ties into the coastguard/beach rescue skin above, while the viking longboat glider and axe similarly link to the multiple viking skins. The rest are little harder to read: a purse? Some balloons? A tire iron?
Fortnite season 5 back bling includes an inflatable Lllama unicorn and a cute penguin
And the backblings (I forgot the last 2 in a previous tweet)! pic.twitter.com/ododE3la6PJuly 12, 2018
Here's a closer look at some of the Fortnite season 5 back bling. There are shields to go with the vikings, what looks like a backpack for the soldiers and, most importantly, a fin for the shark skin. Although, obviously, it's all about that llama unicorn. A... llamacorn?
Annnd there are new Fortnite Season 5 emotes too

These are the Fortnite season 5 emotes we currently know about. The backflip one pops out immediately in a kind of 'is that going to dodge bullets' kind of way. The rest are all pretty much self explanatory. We'll find out which is the next 'Flossing' soon enough.
