Lionsgate and Epic Games have collaborated on a John Wick in-game event for Fortnite that launched today. The event includes a unique Wick’s Bounty LTM (Limited Time Mode) and free John Wick Challenges so players can earn free rewards, including Gold Coin Back Bling, the One Shot Glider, and the Boogeyman Wrap. Additionally, players can jump into the in-game shop to purchase John Wick Set, which includes the John Wick Outfit along with the Simple Sledge Pickaxe. 

 

Wick’s Bounty LTM Details

  • Eliminating a player awards one gold coin for every elimination they have + however many bounty points the target had.
  • Top three coin leaders are displayed on a HUD scoreboard (Bounty Leaders).
