Fortnite’s big crossovers continue this week with the arrival of John Wick in Battle Royale.

The former hitman brings a new limited-time game mode, challenges with free rewards, and of course, a whole bunch of John Wick cosmetics.

Fortnite has had an unofficial John Wick skin for a while now. It was awarded to players who reached tier 100 of the season three Battle Pass. Epic Games called it “The Reaper,” but its resemblance to Wick was uncanny.

Now there’s an official John Wick skin that looks even more like Keanu Reeves. And that’s not all.

Battle Royale gets bounty hunting

Wick’s arrival in Fortnite is accompanied by a brand new game mode called Wick’s Bounty. It sends players on a bounty hunt, collecting coins for eliminations in an effort to earn enough to win the game.

You’ll be rewarded for every elimination, and each player has three lives until they’re out of the match completely. The players with the biggest bounties are market on the map for everyone to see, so be careful.

The Wick’s Bounty LTM comes with a bunch of free challenges, each of which will net you new rewards. Those include bonus XP, the One Shot Glider, the Gold Token back bling, and the Boogeyman weapon wrap.

Find John Wick in the item shop

If you want the official Wick skin, you’ll need to buy it from the item shop — and it’s not cheap. The outfit alone is priced at 2,000 V-Bucks, and there’s a Simple Sledge pickaxe to go with it that’s priced at 500.

They're pricey but they're worth it.

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s all worth every penny.
