Epic Games has apparently made the Skull Trooper and Skull Ranger outfits available for purchase in Fortnite: Battle Royale, as well as some matching cosmetics.

In a tweet late Tuesday night Fortnite officially teased the return of the Skull Trooper.

But leaks from Fortnite dataminers have revealed that the Fortnite Skull Trooper will be making a big splash in Fortnite season 6.

While Fortnite server downtime was taking place in-game files were updated to feature a new card.

It's now available in the item shop, so if you've got the V-Bucks, go insane. The return of Skull Trooper, however, is nearly certainly a move that will bring in a lot of money through microtransactions.

It reads: "Skull Squad Gear available now!"

This image, courtesy of @HappyPower, shows the three variants, with the purple glow style only available to OG Skull Trooper owners.

On top of those to there's the Skull Sickle Harvesting Tool, which will set you back 1200 V-Bucks, and the Crypt Cruiser Epic Glider for 1200 V-Bucks.

You will be able to unlock the Ghost Portal Back Bling with new "Skull Trooper" challenges, which can be seen below, courtesy of FortniteINTEL.

This will surely end up being the Skull Trooper skin unless Epic Games plans on disappointing much of the player base.

The tweet showcases a skull and a pickaxe which seems to suggest a pickaxe will be coming with the skin this time around.
