v9.01 update for the popular battle royale title has been an early hit with players, as many celebrate Epic Games’ decisions to nerf the ultra-powerful Drum Gun, and to make some much-needed alterations to how Slipstreams work around the map.

While many are focused on the patch notes, leakers have already started to sift through the game’s files in hopes of finding clues as to what will be coming soon, and it appears that the much-rumored tie-in with the new John Wick movie is taking place, with a new cosmetic set for the character leaked by @FNBRHQ.

This isn’t the first time fans have been able to rock a skin similar to the character, as The Reaper skin, which was the Tier 100 reward from Season 3’s Battle Pass, was widely believed to be based on the character, although this was never officially confirmed. 

Epic Games / Summit EntertainmentMany believe that The Reaper is based on John Wick – and it’s easy to see why.

First spotted in the game’s files on May 15, fans of the John Wick series will soon be able to rock the same look as the former hitman in the game, and get their hands on one of the franchise’s well-known props.

The new version of the John Wick skin features a look almost identical to actor Keanu Reeves, who has played the character since 2014, and will reprise his role in Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

Players will also be able to use one of the gold coins from the movie as back bling for the character. In the John Wick movies, these special gold coins are a form of currency, used a way to secure services in the underworld instead of traceable forms of money such as cash or credit cards.

Data miner HypeX was able to give players a look at what the skin and backbling will look like in the game’s, ahead of its official release.

ShiinaBR has also been able to provide John Wick fans with footage of the skin inside the game, including various animations such as emotes, building and using a harvesting tool. 

John Wick event in Fortnite Battle Royale

It comes as little surprise that new John Wick items have been found in the game, as it appears that Fortnite Battle Royale is set for a major event to help promote the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, which opens in cinemas on May 17 in the United States.

According to leaks found in the v9.0 update, John Wick will get his own special limited time mode, much like the Avengers did with Endgame, that will see players attempt to collect the gold coins from the movie, while what looks to be Wick’s house from the movie was also added as a new building near Paradise Palms.

The mode, called “Wick’s Bounty,” will also have a number of special challenges for players to compete, with the leaked skin and back bling a possible reward for their completion.

Epic Games have yet to announce when the John Wick event will take place, but with the movie scheduled to release on Friday, it’s likely that we will receive some new information on the LTM in the near future.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
