The Fortnite leprechaun skin doesn’t just look great, it also seems to offer a huge strategic advantage. As showcased during a Ninja Twitch stream, a player equipping the leprechaun skin can appear smaller than normal, making them a tough target to hit.
This is likely not intentional, as these premium skins can be bought, and this kind of purchasable advantage would label Fortnite as pay-to-win, something that I’m sure Epic Games is trying to avoid.
We’re awaiting word from Epic Games on whether this is a bug or glitch, and if there’s going to be a fix. We’ll be sure to update the post with any developments.
