Meet Agent Meowscles, the True Star of Fortnite's New Season

By Alistair Jones on at

Fortnite Chapter 2's second season has just begun, ushering in a suite of spy-themed content. From skins to locations, there's a distinct Bond Villain-esque vibe to the new season, with everything from a banana in a tux to a sharked-shaped hideout.

A trailer for Season 2 sees a number of characters acting as sleeper agents, being activated and then called in to a new mansion. There's a brief cameo from Deadpool, who appears to also lend his likeness to a cosmetic, but the most important new arrival is Agent Meowscles, a skin with the face of an adorable kitty, but the body of a person who spends a lot of time in the gym.

The concept of Buff Cat has been explored at length in certain corners of the internet, but I'm fairly sure this is the most mainstream it's ever got.
