Patrick Mahomes Fortnite skin

Update 24th August 2022: According to Epic Games, the Patrick Mahomes ICON Series skin will be available in the item shop on 24th August and 25th August.

Update 17th August 2022: Apparently, a Patrick Mahomes ICON skin has been in the works for a while, according to Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR. It could be the ideal moment to flaunt said skin now that NFL cosmetics are apparently making a comeback.

Popular Fortnite leakers posted teasers teasing the potential arrival of Patrick Mahomes as a new skin for gamers to unlock, which sparked the first speculations.

The NFL and Epic Games previously worked together to create in-game Fortnite clothes, but they were just standard team-licensed items.

If previous leaks are accurate, Mahomes will be the focus of this drop since he will be getting a custom Fortnite character. Although a precise release date for the Patrick Mahomes drop was not yet specified, some well-known Fortnite leakers predicted it should occur shortly.

As of yet, the only information about the files holding the Fortnite Patrick Mahomes information that has leaked is an Adidas logo. The well-known sportswear company is one of Mahomes’ main sponsors.

Given that Fortnite currently has generic NFL clothing, it’s plausible that the upcoming update may include a version of Mahomes “out of uniform.” The jersey number in the Fortnite locker can be changed with these NFL team skins, and many fans have used the #15 as a method to play with a fake Mahomes outfit.

Several athletes have already appeared as Fortnite Icon Series skins. Neymar, Naomi Osaka, Marco Reus, and LeBorn James are among those mentioned. No NFL player has appeared as a Fortnite Icon skin to date.

If the leaks are true, Patrick Mahomes will be the first NFL player to appear on the coveted list if he had been included. Players must, however, wait a while before he can join other sports figures in the list of Fortnite Icons since the files holding his in-game data were removed.
