Fortnite Batman Event: Everything You Need to Know

With Sept. 21 being the third Saturday of the month, it is the celebration of Batman Day. Epic Games has decided to partner with Batman to create a Batman themed event. For this event, Tilted Towers has been renamed Gotham City, and a new set of cosmetics called the "Caped Crusader Pack" has been released. The cosmetic pack will be available until Oct. 6 when the event ends.

Furthermore, the Catwoman Comic Book Outfit will also be available for a limited time in the Item Shop. There will also be some free rewards and challenges that will be available until Oct. 1, such as the Catwing Glider.

In-game, players will have unlimited redeployment of their own Batman themed gliders in Gotham City, and there will be two new weapons called the Batman Grapnel Gun and the Explosive Batarang. The Grapnel Gun has 10 shots, can be shot at any solid in the environment, and essentially acts as a grappling hook. At the apex of your launch, the Bat Cape will come out and act like a glider. The Explosive Batarang is a homing projectile that deals 50 damage to players and 200 to solid environment.

The new Batman event is extremely exciting and brings a lot to the game. Make sure you login and get as many rewards and cosmetics as you can before the event ends on Oct. 6.
