According to Hypex, Epic Games was working on 10 exciting collaborations, as featured in some mining sessions.

Hypex further revealed details of two bundles that were supposed to be in the works but never made it into the game.

  1. Moss Legends: (Moss Knight, Moss Brite Bomber, and Moss Omega)
  2. Sweet Legends: (Sweet Guff, Team Leader Sweet Cuddle and Sweet Fishstick)

These were supposed to be released at the end of Chapter 2, but unfortunately they haven’t shown up yet. As Hypex pointed out via another tipster, Sweet Legends’ Sweet Fishstick was introduced to the game as “Gummy Fishstick” as part of Fortnitemares 2021, so it’s possible the rest of the pack will be released as than standalone skins.
