Lionsgate and Epic Games have finally unleashed their John Wick collaboration event for Fortnite today.

The time limited event is called Wick's Bounty and is available now. By completing the Wick's Bounty challenges, players can pick up the Gold Coin Back Bling, One Shot Glider, and the Boogeyman Wrap. The Simple Sledge Pickaxe and John Wick Outfit are available for purchase only.
