There are many hints in Fortnite for the upcoming collaboration with John Wick including map changes, leaked challenges and more. Here is what we know.

In the Season 9 update, there were a few leaked files added that suggested there will be a John Wick and Fortnite collaboration. There are also a few map changes that have been made at the start of the season that also point us in the direction for the collaboration. Here is everything we know so far.

Fortnite Map Changes Related to John Wick

In the Season 9 update, there were many map changes that were made. The most obvious reference to John Wick is the house that has been added in Paradise Palms. This looks exactly like the house for John Wick in the movie.

Another change that you may not have noticed is the Continental Hotel at Neo Tilted which has the same sign as the hotel in the John Wick movie although it says Neo Tilted at the bottom instead of NYC.

Fortnite Weapon Additions Related to John Wick

At the start of the season everyone was shocked that the Pump Shotgun had been vaulted and the Combat Shotgun was introduced instead. According to IMFDB, John Wick used a Benelli M4 Super 90 shotgun in the movie and so in order to add this weapon to Fortnite, the Pump Shotgun had to be sacrificed. It is possible the Pump Shotgun will return after the collaboration, but we will have to wait and see.

Leaks suggest that a Tactical Assault Rifle will be added to the game in the next update, which again is another weapon used by John Wick. If you look closely at the leaked Tactical Assault Rifle and the Assault Rifle John Wick uses, you can see a logo, which look very similar. We have highlighted the logo in the image below.

Leaked John Wick LTM and Challenges

Data-miners had managed to find in the files added in the Fortnite update, challenges that were for the Wick’s Bounty LTM. These challenges can be seen below. Two of the challenges below involve players dealing damage with the weapons mentioned above. It looks like there will also be some exclusive cosmetics for players that complete these challenges, an umbrella and a wrap.

I dont think they are going to bring the pump back. They said they took it away because it was currently account for over 26% in eliminations in default playlists….

That doesn’t matter cause now the drum gun or tac will be all the eliminations, it’s faulty reasoning

Its not crappy, its because younger players are gonna have school off and they dont want them to die by one pump and leave their game. So they made it to the spray meta which is kinda stupid. But overall the shotgun isn’t that bad considering range, but damage yeah.

Pump is good

The combat shotgun is probably just as the tac before it was buffed. You see, although the combat shotgun does actually have some range, an AR or SMG would do way more damage at that same range due to the high damage drop off and the low base damage of the weapon. It doesn’t make sense to use the combat beyond close range situations since it just doesn’t do enough damage, when there are alternatives. Second, although the combat shotgun has a base damage of 70+, it rarely hits for more than 50 body due to the tight spread of… Read more »
