Recent reports indicated that Fortnite Battle Royale’s V-bucks have earned $1 billion for Epic Games, and there’s a really good reason for that: Fortnite‘s cosmetics regularly blow other games’ cosmetics out of the water.

Don’t believe me? A recent leak of upcoming cosmetic items should be enough evidence to prove my case.

Fortnite Cosmetics Directory (via VG 24/7) recently posted a batch of leaked upcoming cosmetics, and they should appeal to fans of Dr. Evil and Solaire of Astora.

The legendary cosmetic is a shark with a laser on its head called “Laser Chomp,” a clear reference to a request from Dr. Evil in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. We’re not sure exactly what kind of cosmetic Laser Chomp is, but we’re hoping its one of those newfangled toys that Fortnite introduced in season five.

The other highlight of the leaked cosmetics is a new gesture that takes a page from Dark Souls‘ most iconic and lovable cursed undead. The “Storm Salutation” gesture will have player characters reach their arms to the sky to “praise the storm” just like Solaire praised his beloved sun.

Some of the other skins, back blings, and pickaxes are pretty slick, too, including a backpack with a nail-reinforced baseball bat and the new epic skin, Archetype, who shares a resemblance to Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher, at least in the goggles department.

The game’s latest updated added new birthday-themed cosmetics to earn and challenges to complete in celebration of the game’s anniversary, and Playground mode is returning really soon, so there’s plenty of reason to load up Fortnite right now.

Fortnite is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile.
