To win, you gotta have a gladiator mindset. Or just be a gladiator.

Quarterback, record-breaker, and NFL and Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes makes his next play in the Fortnite Icon Series. And since recovery is as important as putting in the work, his alter-ego Mahomes Saucy Style is also dropping in!

Both of these Outfits — as well as Patrick Mahomes accessories — will be available in the Fortnite Item Shop starting Wednesday, August 24, at 8 PM ET. But here’s the blitz: on August 23, players have the opportunity to earn the Patrick Mahomes Outfit early with the Patrick Mahomes Cup! Find out more information about this tournament, including the special Emoticon reward.

From Gameday to Rest Day: Mahomes Saucy Style Outfit and Back Bling

One day, you’re scrambling, the next, you’re putting ketchup on scrambled eggs. It wouldn’t be a Mahomes rest day if he wasn’t eating something with ketchup on it, so the Mahomes Saucy Style Outfit is also entering the Item Shop! This ketchup-embellished Outfit includes The Good Stuff Back Bling, which is, yes, a bottle of ketchup.
