Players who purchased the original Merry Marauder and Ginger Gunner skins during the holidays last year will be treated to a special surprise in Fortnite following the latest 7.10 patch update. Each of these gingerbread outfits have received new Mini Marauder Back Bling accessories, as well as a series of facial expressions to help you show how you really feel this holiday season.
The original Merry Marauder outfit featured a gingerbread man skin with a frowning face. With the latest update, players who already owned the original version of this skin and the Ginger Gunner outfit can now customize either outfit with a smiling face style option.
Both outfits now have burnt versions as well, allowing players to head into battle as scorched gingerbread cookies instead. The burnt variations can also swap between smiling and frowning countenances as well.
To round out each of these gingerbread outfits in Fortnite, players who owned these outfits will also receive the Mini Marauder Back Bling, which depicts a tiny, angry gingerbread cookie strapped onto the character’s back. Players who owned the Crackshot Nutcracker skin also received their own Birdshot Back Bling, which depicts the small cuckoo bird that was featured in the launch trailer for Fortnite Season 7.
Currently, these updated outfits are not available in the in-game Item Shop and have only been granted to players who previously purchased these outfits in Fortnite. However, in an announcement today, Epic revealed their plans to unleash 14 Days of Fortnite, a holiday event that will feature new challenges and rewards over the next two weeks, starting on December 19. Whether these updated gingerbread outfit styles will become available during this holiday event remains to be seen, but we can’t rule it out.
