Fortnite Skull Trooper is making its triumphant return with the skin having a comeback in Fortnite update 6.02.

Fortnite Skull Trooper was last available way back during Fortnite season 1 - so it's something only veteran Battle Royale players could have unlocked.

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.

And this revealed that the ‘Skull Squad’ gear will be available in the item shop today.

The description for it reveals that there will be specific challenges that help Fortnite players unlock extra gear.

It reads: “Skull Squad Gear available now! Complete challenges to earn the Ghost Portal Back Bling”.

The official Fortnite Twitter later confirmed the return of the Skull Trooper after the skin's comeback leaked earlier on.

They tweeted: “Patch v6.02 is available now with a return from beyond the grave!

“The Skull Squad Gear is available now. Complete challenges to earn the Ghost Portal Back Bling.”

Fortnite fans will be able to purchase the Skull Trooper and Skull Ranger separately as well as their respective pickaxe and glider.

While the previously leaked Ghost Portal back bling will be unlockable through the Fortnite Skull Trooper challenges.

Here are the V-Bucks prices for the new Skull Trooper additions to the Fortnite Shop today:

A tweet from Fortnite leakers TwoEpicBuddies also appears to show that there will be unlockable styles for the Fortnite Skull Trooper and Skull Ranger.

The post shows the Fortnite Skull Trooper and Skull Ranger boasting different coloured masks to the one you first get when you purchase the skin.

Alongside it, the Fortnite leakers tweeted: “Customizable Skull Trooper Styles!”
