Renegade Raider coming back to Fortnite Season 8

YouTuber Ali-A revealed in his latest video that Renegade Raider will make an iconic return to Fortnite Season 8. She was a rare outfit in Fortnite and could be obtained after reaching Level 20 in the Season Shop for 1,200 V-Bucks. The character made its first appearance in Season 1 as a part of the Storm Scavenger set.

Fortnite dataminer on Twitter ShiinaBR also posted an update on Twitter that sort of teased the return of Renegade Raider as Renegade Skull Trooper. Perhaps this will become another addition to the Skull Trooper skins.

The Skin is expected to arrive ahead of the Fortnightmares event as a part of the annual Halloween themes that Fortnite brings out every year. Furthermore, there are other skins coming down the line, one themed after the general theme of Season 8.

Season 8 has been dubbed as ‘Cubed’. And YouTuber Ali-A, in the aforementioned video, has noticed a skin that is made of cubes. This might be a part of the spooky Halloween skins that Fortnite has in plan for Fortnightmare.
