John Wick made a return to Fortnite with the release of John Wick 3 Parabellum.

According to Epic Games;

The High Table has opened a new contract. It’s up to you to collect the bounty. Stay alive and collect gold tokens by eliminating the other bounty hunters. The first one to fulfill the order wins, but be careful how far ahead you get, as you will become a target for everyone else.

The Wick’s Bounty limited event gives players something new to try, new challenges and free rewards which include;

  • Gold Token Back Bling
  • One Shot Glider
  • Boogeyman Wrap
  • Bonus XP

The Fortnite shop has also been updated to include the John Wick Set which includes the John Wick outfit and the sledgehammer pickaxe.

The Wick’s Bounty Event has the following rules;

Every player begins with several gold tokens. Eliminating an enemy player pays out all of the tokens the target was carrying. The first squad to reach the specified gold token count wins the match.

Mode Details

  • Limited respawning: Each player has three lives.
  • The more tokens a player is carrying, the more visible on the map they will be when moving or shooting.
  • The top 3 token leaders will have their location shown on the map & compass at all times.

Fortnite Season 9 is chock full of things to do, challenges to complete and games to win. Stay tuned for more Fortnite news.
