Fortnite Season 6: Pets and Weapon skins could be coming to the next season of the battle royale game

It's going to be tough keeping you and a pet alive

With a matter of days to go before the start of Season 6, we are seeing more leaks and rumours by the day.

Fans of Fortnite‘s battle royale mode, however, never expected to be able to have pets follow them around in-game.

According to ‘FNLeaks’ on Twitter an account well known for accurately predicting previous updates by looking at the game’s files, we could be seeing pets in the upcoming season of Fortnite as well as weapon skins and music packs.

The biggest question is that if pets are made available as paid additions or as part of the battle pass what will they do?

The most likely answer is that pets will play a purely cosmetic role and act as another way for Epic Games to make some cash from V-bucks purchases.

The majority of MMORPG’s allow players to have mini pets which will pick up loot or give players a buff, this would go against everything Fortnite stands for.

The game thus far has not been pay-to-win adding this in would alienate fans.

Weapon skins please god no!

Loot boxes.

When people hear the word weapon skins they think of CS:GO, Call of Duty and other games where you can purchase loot boxes and have a chance of getting a randomised weapon skin.

CS:GO are renowned for their in-game weapon skins

Again, it is unlikely that Fortnite will take this route in Season 6 as they already have such an effective system when it comes to in-game cosmetics.

Weapon skins will just give players another opportunity to show off their look.
