While they might have been heavily “inspired” by the movie and character for the Season 3 Battle Pass, the John Wick skin in Fortnite, known as The Reaper, was never official. Following the v9.01 patch, it looks like John Wick will be taking some time out from his normal day to shoot Gundam chickens and fast food mascots.
The skin, cannily just called “John Wick”, has been found in the patch files, meaning it is due to come to the game very soon — almost certainly as soon as downtime is over. Here’s what it looks like; an almost 1:1 recreation of Keanu Reeves.
This should not come as a major surprise as we’ve been seeing hints of it (and an LTM) in previous patches. In addition to that, Wick’s famous gun, the Tactical Assault Rifle, is also being introduced with 9.01 patch, and you can also drop at his house on the edge of the map.
Movie marketing is damn weird: Pair with a video game with a majorly young fanbase that could never watch your hyper-violent movie at a cinema anyway, who also very cheekily lifted your protagonist’s design a long while back.
