The wildly-popular ‘Jurrasic Park’ film series has been referenced yet again in Fortnite.
Ever since its launch in 2017, Fortnite has made a number of references to various popular culture trends and icons.
With the release of the new Epic and Legendary Pump Shotgun in the v6.31 update, Epic Games decided to pay homage to Jurrasic Park wth a subtle reference on the side of the weapon.
When zoomed-in on the new Pump Shotgun, a small line of text reads, “SMRT YNG LDY 110639.” This is a nod at the famous ‘clever girl’ scene from the first Jurrassic Park film, which released on June 11, 1993 (110693).
The inclusion of the new Pump Shotgun is a reference to the scene in itself. When Muldoon, played by Bob Peck, is hunting Raptors, he can be seen weildng a ‘Spas-12’ shogtun – the same model as the Epic and Legendary Fortnite Pump Shotgun.
Jurassic Park was also implemented into Fortnite via the ‘Rex Loading Screen’ which could be obtained in Season 4 by reaching Tier 12 of the Battle Pass.
