Dr Disrespect reacts to Fortnite skin that bears strong resemblance to him

Fortnite and now he has more questions after the game debuted a skin that looks very similar to Dr Disrespect’s persona.

Dr Disrespect has long been a vocal critic of Fortnite which has caused him to uninstall the game several times. 

He constantly blasts the game for being too “cartoony” and aimed at kids, but after seeing a new skin pop up, it seems like he has a much more valid criticism on his hands.

Nvidia recently ran a promotion that gave away special Fortnite cosmetic bundle called the Counterattack bundle that came with a skin, glider and pickaxe.

However, players were also able to purchase the cosmetics separately in the item shop which no longer made them exclusive to those who purchase a new GPU.

Fortnite’s new Counterattack bundle looks a lot like Doc

Epic Games made things right by giving original owners a new variation of the set but it looks eerily similar to how Dr Disrespect’s on-stream persona looks.

Doc made a comment about it on Twitter, even joking that he might have to sue Epic Games over this.

“Impressive, but I might sure,” he wrote. “For a lot of money.”

For what it’s worth, the skin would probably be fine on its own but the fact that it has a red vest makes the comparison to Doc all that much closer.

Perhaps this was Epic’s way of getting back on the Doc’s good side after being on his bad side for so long.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
