Fortnite’s Tilted Town Is Now Gotham City and Batman Is Taking Over

Over the past few weeks, many teases kept us on the edge in anticipation for the arrival of Batman in Fortnite. Finally, after what felt like a long wait, Batman has arrived and he has turned Tilted Town into Gotham City. The Final Storm circles won’t come to this area in core and Arena modes, Epic explained in its Fornite x Batman reveal blogpost.

During the event, all Fortnite players will have their own cape and the ability to redeploy the glider as many times as they want. This means you can fly around as many times as you want without having any fear of heights, you know, just like Gotham City’s very own Caped Crusader.

The coolest part of the Fortnite x Batman crossover is Batman’s Grapnel Gun. The gun works exactly the way it should and it does when Batman uses it. You hook it with something in the environment to be pulled toward the impact location in a flat arc.

The Batman Grapnel Gun brings amazing levels of mobility to an already highly mobile gameplay design. The Grapnel Gun can be used in contrast with the Bat Cape to glide. Another exciting part of the crossover is Batman’s Batarang which explodes on impact.


Batman Grapnel Gun
Available in Mythic variant.
Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Llamas.
The Batman Grapnel Gun comes with 10 charges. A charge is consumed each time the player is launched.
When the grappling hook from the Batman Grapnel Gun impacts something in the environment, the owner will be launched in a flat arc towards the point of impact.
At the apex of the launch, the player will deploy the Bat Cape, which can be used like any other Glider to traverse great distances.
Explosive Batarang
Available in Mythic variant.
Found from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Llamas.
Drops in stacks of 5.
Max stack size is 10.
This consumable item is thrown out in a relatively flat arc. It will home in towards opponents.
The projectile explodes when in close proximity to an opponent.
Explosion damage:
50 damage to players.
200 damage to the environment.
If the Explosive Batarang impacts the environment, it will stick to the spot where it lands. At that point, it behaves as a proximity mine, exploding when opponents come too close to it.
An Explosive Batarang that has impacted the environment can be disarmed and picked up by both the player who threw it or their allies.

Fortnite x Batman Crossover event is now live with new weapons, items, and costumes on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
