Another day and another Fortnite leak. This time, dataminers have discovered a Fortnite Red Strike starter pack that is set to become available for purchase. The new kit, which you’ll be able to buy with real cash, will have a release date confirmed soon enough. If you can’t wait to find out when it’ll be available, however, we’ve got you covered. Check out our Fortnite Red Strike starter pack guide for all of the information you’ll need.
Fortnite Red Strike Starter Pack | Leaked skin
Before we let you in on its release date, let’s have a look at what comes with the Fortnite Red Strike starter pack. According to prominent leaker ShiinaBR, this upcoming kit will come with the, well, Red Strike outfit.
Looking through the game’s code, ShiinaBR was able to find a description of the starter pack. You’ll be able to “Silence your foes with the Red Strike pack”, apparently, and get your hands on some decent goodies too. This includes the outfit, an as-yet-unnamed Back Bling cosmetic, and 600 V-Bucks.
Another well-known dataminer was also able to give us an idea of how the skin will look. Uploading an image to their Twitter account, FNBRLeaks showed that the outfit will be predominantly black with hints of red in it. Whether this is the final official skin or not is unclear but, hopefully, it won’t be long before we find out.

Fortnite Red Strike Starter Pack | Release date
In terms of when the Red Strike pack could launch, we’re not entirely sure. However, it isn’t usually long until leaks from the game’s files are officially patched into the game.
As such, we’d expect the Red Strike pack to be made available in the next few weeks. The Wilde starter pack has been around for a while now, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Epic replace it before August ends. Once we have a concrete release date, we’ll let you know.
