Batman Makes His Way to Fortnite to Celebrate 80th Anniversary, Tilted Town Turned Into Gotham City

Epic Games has officially unveiled the Batman crossover event for Fortnite to celebrate the Dark Knight’s 80th anniversary. Turning Tilted Town into Gotham City until October 6th, the event gives players a chance to grab the Caped Crusader Pack and weapons.

The Caped Crusader Pack adds cosmetics including the Batman Comic Book Outfit and The Dark Knight Movie Outfit. Weapons include Batman’s Grapnel Gun and Explosive Batarang. You can grab individual Batman-themed items from Fortnite‘s shop as well, including a Catwoman outfit.

Patch notes are as follows:

WEAPONS + ITEMS

  • Batman Grapnel Gun
    • Available in Mythic variant.
    • Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Llamas.
    • The Batman Grapnel Gun comes with 10 charges. A charge is consumed each time the player is launched.
    • When the grappling hook from the Batman Grapnel Gun impacts something in the environment, the owner will be launched in a flat arc towards the point of impact.
    • At the apex of the launch, the player will deploy the Bat Cape, which can be used like any other Glider to traverse great distances.
  • Explosive Batarang
    • Available in Mythic variant.
    • Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Llamas.
    • Drops in stacks of 5.
    • Max stack size is 10.
    • This consumable item is thrown out in a relatively flat arc. It will home in towards opponents.
    • The projectile explodes when in close proximity to an opponent.
      • Explosion damage:
        • 50 damage to players.
        • 200 damage to the environment.
    • If the Explosive Batarang impacts the environment, it will stick to the spot where it lands. At that point, it behaves as a proximity mine, exploding when opponents come too close to it.
      • An Explosive Batarang that has impacted the environment can be disarmed and picked up by both the player who threw it or their allies.
