According to recent Fortnite leaks, it would seem that Epic Games is planning to unvault an old healing item - Med-Mist. While it was not quite extraordinary when introduced to the game's loot pool, it did make healing a little easier. Players could heal themselves and their teammates on the go, which was rather useful in certain situations, especially when trying to escape The Storm.

However, in Chapter 5 Season 3, based on the information given by Fortnite leakers/data miners, SamLeakss and fn_greenfox, it could be added to the game soon. Granted there are other healing items in-game that are good, but the Med-Mis has a special place. That said, here is more about the topic at hand.

Fortnite leaks suggest Med-Mist could return in Chapter 5 Season 3

Based on the details available, Med-Mist could make a comeback this season. It is slated to spawn as Floor Loot and in Large Ammo Boxes. While Epic Games has not confirmed any of this, the information was likely brought to light due to files being updated.

In most instances, when Epic Games updates files, it means that they are preparing to introduce, or in this case, reintroduce the item to the loot pool. This has been seen time and again over the years across the span of several seasons.

Granted, it does not always come to pass, but it's mostly for cosmetics such as Kratos and Travis Scott. Items are usually introduced in-game soon after the files related to them are updated in some way.

That being said, having the Med-Mist back in-game will be useful. Players will be able to heal each other on the go, and given how fast it heals, it will come in handy during combat situations.

With the season just getting underway, the loot pool is saturated as is. Players are still adjusting to the new items and learning how to use them properly. Also, there is a plethora of new Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 vehicle mods that were added.

Given these circumstances, 'if' the Med-Mist is added back this season, it would likely be done mid-season. This would allow players to get a proper grasp of everything that was vaulted and unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3. Introducing Med-Mist later will also keep the loot pool fresh.
