The Fortnite X John Wick crossover event is currently live in Fortnite. Within the Wick’s Bounty LTM, players have discovered an easter egg from the John Wick movies.
John Wick’s crossover for Fortnite is the second franchise to partner with Epic to deliver such content. While the scale isn’t as big as the EndGame event, the quality of the content is much better overall.
An excellent new LTM with potential for becoming a rotating mode, a high quality skin well worth its price, and even a little easter egg for movie franchise fans. That’s what we call a successful event.
No killing on Continental grounds
In the John Wick movies, the Continental hotels serve as safe havens to assassins that work under the High Table. The High Table is essentially a ruling class of high class criminals.
While assassins are allowed to kill each other, they cannot do so while on Continental grounds. Doing so has dire consequences for the perpetrator.
In the Wick’s Bounty LTM, players can get a little easter egg when they waltz into the hotel in Neo Tilted.
As you enter the building, the game will force you to stow your weapons. A message will pop up on the screen stating ‘Welcome to the Continental. Remember – No Business While on the Hotel Grounds’.
In John Wick’s Bounty, if you go into the hotel in tilted it forces you to put your gun away. “No business while on the hotel grounds.” Nice little gem. from r/FortNiteBR
For fans of the movie franchise, it’s a cool little hidden feature.
In the movies, only those willing to take on the full heat of the High Table attempt to break this rule. If some poor soul does decide to break Continental rules, an extreme bounty will placed on their heads…with a figure that no one can resist.
Mr. John Wick does exactly this in the second installment of the franchise. The third movie, John Wick: Chapter 3, revolves around the consequences of his actions and his efforts to kill every last assassin that’s coming for him.
You can see John Wick 3 in theaters starting May 17th. The movie stars Keanu Reeves as John Wick alongside Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburn, Ian McShane, and many others.
