It really seems as if nothing really stops data miners, especially when it comes to Epic Megagames' mega game Fortnite: Battle Royale. Its 5.2 update has now been cracked open, along with its delicious cosmetic contents you'll see inside.

The data mine is courtesy of guys at FortniteInsider, who've uncovered the upcoming skins, gliders, pickaxes and back blings, as well as the rarities on each of the respective items. We've tried to arrange them in logical clumps, just to give a more complete picture of how it all ties down in Fortnite.

As you can see, Epic's design team has properly let loose once again, delivering some delicious designs. First off are the 80s styled Aerobic Assassin and Mullet Marauder on the picture above, both of whom come in epic rarity. Combined with the uncommon Axercise and epic Back Plate or Boom Box, you'll be totally rocking the 80s. Be warned though, nobody's proud of 80s. 

Next up are creepy motorcycle duo, the Overtaker and Whiteout, both of which come in epic rarity. Note that there's a darker coloured version of the White Squall called Cyclone, but we've decided not to spoil the picture with recolours.

Epic are really pushing Fortnite's Durrr Burger franchise hard with teh epic Beef Boss skin being nothing but an enlarged sign from the in-game burger joint. You know, the one that went missing and was found in a California desert prior to Fortnite's Season 5 kickoff.

Last but not the least is my personal favourite, the rare Sushi Master, an epitome of the fact that sometimes less is more. Except when we're talking about shotguns of course. Paired up with rare Fillet Axe and a choice between rare back bling in Chef's Choice or legendary Bamboo, you'll have the whole chop 'em up vibe going.

There were a few more pieces of equipment and emojis we haven't found worthy of inclusion, although we'll be seeing them in-game soon enough.
