The Fortnite Mummy skin and Pyramid POI have been teased since the end of Chapter 2 Season 6. Despite the numerous speculations, rumors and even a few leaks, nothing came to fruition in the current season thus far.
Despite a few leaks showcasing desert-themed plants and even a loading screen that gave off a Mad Max vibe, nothing really came of it. Although the character in the loading screen was featured as a skin, the desert plants in the files were merely being tested by the developers.
Nonetheless, after much anticipation and waiting, it would seem that the Fortnite Mummy skin and possibly even a Pyramid POI may be coming to the game soon, according to many leakers.
Fortnite Mummy skin: Unwrapping the mystery
During the minor Fortnite update on October 5, Epic Games teased the community with a few possible collaborations, alongside cosmetics, via Fortnitemare cards.
While most of the cards have been decrypted by eager loopers, a lot of them still remain unknown to an extent. Among those that are still unknown is a card that resembles the rumored Fortnite Mummy skin.
Although there's still speculation as to what the skin might look like, Epic Games themselves provided a little hint confirming that it will indeed be coming to the game this month to celebrate Fortnitemares.
Additionally, the Fortnite Mummy skin will not only be a cosmetic item, but it will also roam about on the island as a walking-talking NPC. Here's what the developers had to say in their official blog post:
"The Mummy will also be lurching on the island as a character later in the month, trying to find his way home to the Underworld."
Given that the developers mentioned "trying to find his way back to the Underworld", there is a very strong possibility of having a new POI added to the game soon.
According to one leaker, FNChiefAko, a small landmark could spawn on the island, which would host the new Mummy NPC. Much like Isla Nublada, which spawned toward the end of Fortnite Season 6 to house Orelia, something similar may happen this season.
Nonetheless, readers should take this information with a pinch of salt, as Epic Games' statement may have been more metaphorical than actual. While the Fortnite Mummy skin is indeed coming, the Pyramid POI may not.
Q. Do you think a Pyramid will spawn in Fortnite?
Not likely. Would be cool though.
It could happen.
