HONOR Guard Fortnite: Epic Games Postpones Release Following Exploit Discovery

The HONOR Guard skin, scheduled to arrive in Fortnite in the near future, has been postponed by Epic Games in light of a new exploit discovered by Fortnite players. Here's everything you need to know about the Honor Guard in Fortnite.

Honor Guard Fortnite: Postponed Because of Exploit

The HONOR Guard Fortnite skin was announced Jan. 22 as a promotional skin for the HONOR View 20 smartphone. Epic Games did not specify a reason for the postponement, saying only that it would provide more information once it became available.

According to FNBR.news, Epic Games made the decision as a response to an exploit players discovered to create hundreds of codes for the skin. Players who hadn't purchased the phone per the promotion were able to gain access to the skins en masse.

Fortnite previously offered a similar promotion with the Samsung Note 9 or Galaxy Tab S4, which gave players the Galaxy skin for playing on either device. That deal is scheduled to expire in March.
