New leaks point to the addition of a Sneaky Snowman and Mideavel Sword coming to Fortnite Battle Royale.
Fortnite's V7.20 released and left us with more questions than answers. Why is there a massive iceberg rapidly melting? What does the ball over Polar Peak mean?
We've already covered the new skins, pickaxes, and gliders coming to Fortnite in the near future, but that's not the only thing dataminers found in the game files.
The first is probably the most troubling: it looks like a new sword is headed to Battle Royale. An image of the sword and audio for it has been found in the game files.

From what we can tell, this sword doesn't appear to be a pickaxe, nor does it appear to be the same thing as the Infinity Blade. Could this be a new "Mythic" sword or just a melee weapon you can find while looting? Only time will tell.
Now, let's move onto the Bush V2: The Snowman. Right now, it looks like the SneakySnowman item is a consumable, much like the bush.

Could this item be a possible replacement for the bush? It's kind of mind-boggling that the bush has made it so far into the game. An adjustment to it might be a cool wrinkle within gameplay, although it won't be as sneaky when you see a snowman hiding in the middle of Pleasant Park.
We'll have to wait and see how these items shake out, although most people are probably more worried about the new sword. Is it possible that Epic hasn't learned their lesson about such items yet? I certainly hope not.
