Drop into any Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 match and no two players will look the same. Everyone's got a favourite skin, whether it's their proudest battle pass achievement or just one that makes them look silly.

So, it's naturally very exciting when something new pops up in the game code. Dataminers are quick workers and soon uncovered the Black Manta skin, the antagonist to the secret Aquaman skin currently up for grabs.

Sure, we've had a handful of skins in the code that never made their appearance in the battle royale, but this one has a separately leaked release date and everything.

It's safe to say it looks like the real deal.

Dataminer easkateconcepts found the skin in the game files and teased it on their Twitter account.

The skin clearly doesn't have the textures on it yet, but they won't be far off. In fact, the dataminer suggested this was only a teaser, so they may have access to the full skin but are keeping their mouth shut for the time being.

For those who don't know, Black Manta is not a knock-off Stewie Griffin, but is, in fact, Aquaman's greatest adversary.

Another dataminer, HYPEX, has an inside source (although they clearly state this is not an employee) who told them the release date of the Black Manta skin.

The skin will be available on July 16 at 14.00 GMT, alongside Black Manta Blades (dual-wielded pickaxes).
