Fortnite X Batman Crossover Event Available Now

To celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Batman, Epic Games has teamed up with DC Comics to bring Gotham to the world of Fortnite! Fortnite X Batman is a limited-time crossover event which brings new Batman-themed Cosmetics, Point of Interest, Items, and Challenges to Fortnite Battle Royale.



Upon the reveal of the Fortnite X Batman event, the Item Shop has updated to include the Catwoman Outfit, Batglider Glider, Cat's Claws Pickaxes, and more.


The Batman Outfit and accompanying Pickaxe + Glider are also purchasable via the in-game Store for $19.99 USD.


The Gotham City point of interest is now located where the Tilted Towers/Town location once stood. This Rift Zone is a Gotham-themed rendition of the classic Tilted Towers, complete with the Monarch Theater, City Hall, and Wayne Enterprises building.

Explosive Batarang & Batman Grapnel Gun


  • 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.
