Fortnite dataminers have started digging through the latest update and one of the discoveries is the special John Wick LTM named Wick's Bounty. Dataminer Lucas7Yoshi shared challenges and weapons that will be available during the event.

Fortnite Season 9 has finally arrived today with a bunch of new additions including Combat Shotgun, Slipstreams and much more. Just like with every major update, dataminers have started to dig into the game's files in the hope they will discover some new, upcoming items and events.

According to the latest findings from well-know Fortnite dataminer Lucas7Yoshi, Epic Games could soon add a special limited time mode named Wick's Bounty to celebrate the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum film, which is coming to cinemas in just a few days now - 16 May 2019.

Lucas7Yoshi managed to find a set of challenges that will apparently be available during the event. These include winning a match of Wick's Bounty, collecting Gold Coins and dealing damage with the new Combat Shotgun as well as Tactical Assault Rifle. The latter is not yet in the game, and Epic will most likely add it along with the Wick's Bounty LTM.

The event will also introduce a new cosmetic set named Assasin Suit, which is probably John Wick's iconic suit we already had the chance to see previously in Fortnite. 

At the moment, there is no official confirmation if this event will indeed come to Fornite but if Epic Games plan to add it, it shouldn't be long before we get an announcement as the movie release is pretty close.

This is, of course, not the first time that Epic Games are collaborating with films to bring special events to their game. Recently, Avengers: Endgame crossover was introduced to celebrate the launch of the finale.
