As we are fast approaching Valentine’s Day, Epic has announced the return of a favorite weapon to Fortnite for a limited time!

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Epic Games has announced that the Cupid Crossbow will be returning to Fortnite Battle Royale as part of Update v7.40.

Cupid’s Crossbow first debuted in Fortnite last year as a celebration item for Valentine’s Day but was removed subsequently.

The in-game news feed within Fortnite was updated to confirm the weapon’s return.

Triumphant Return! Cupid’s Crossbow will be unvaulted for a limited time. Eliminate your opponents with stealth and precision. 

Epic Games has not announced how long the item will be unvaulted for, but has stated it is a limited time item.

The next big update for Fortnite, v7.40, is expected to go live on February 12th. v7.40 is set to bring new balancing adjustments for many items, the new Infantry Rifle, and more.

  1. YES!!! I was just thinking about this earlier today. The crossbow was a really good gun and I’m glad I will be able to use it again.

  2. I think we all knew this would happen but they don’t need to add more useless crap to the game, they should at least buff it so it’s usable
