Epic has done it again. Another celebrity is joining the game soon. This time, quarterback, record-breaker, and both Super Bowl LVI and NFL MVP (2019) Patrick Mahomes makes his next move in the Fortnite icons lineup. He'll come with the Saucy Mahomes outfit as well

Patrick Mahomes Joins The Fortnite Icon Series

Patrick Mahomes is an American football quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL. He became the only quarterback in history to throw for 5,000 yards in both college and the NFL in a single season. He is also, along with Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, the only player in NFL history to throw 50 touchdown passes in a single season. Rightly so, he was named an All-Pro and honored with NFL Offensive Player of the Year and NFL Most Valuable Player awards in 2019. In the 2019-2020 playoffs, Mahomes also led the Chiefs to Super Bowl LIV, their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years, where they defeated the San Francisco 49ers.

If you're not already thrilled to have such an insanely talented athlete in Fortnite, then listen to this: The Patrick Mahomes outfit will have two alternate styles and some really nice cosmetics!

These are the two styles:

  • Gladiator Mindset Style: Shades on and arm enhanced.
  • Gameday Gladiator Style: Fear not a sack or pass rush.

Patrick Mahomes Skin: Set & Cosmetics

Of course, it's not a new Fortnite skin without some epic new cosmetics, right? The Patrick Mahomes outfit also includes:

  • Gridiron Gladiator Back Bling: Suit up for battle. (Included with the Patrick Mahomes Outfit.)
  • Snap Axes Pickaxe: Expertly handled. (Glows red when swung!)
  • Endzone Elite Wrap: Gear for your gear.
  • Showtime Emote: Back in the game.

And it wouldn't be Mahomes if his set didn't include something with ketchup as well, so the Saucy Mahomes outfit is making an appearance in the item shop as well! This ketchup loving outfit also includes the Good Stuff back bling. This is, of course, a bottle of ketchup.
