Fortnite Skin Shift Mid-Shootout Shows That John Wick Is Evolving


Glitches happen, it's the nature of online games. This is even more true for a title that is heavily populated such as with Epic Games' Fortnite. That being said, when these glitches are captured on camera the community comes out with their best Internet-driven jokes and this one brings the John Wick (joking) conspiracy theories out in full force.

Obviously, it's just a glitch but seeing a no-skin transform into John Wick mid-battle is pretty epically hilarious. The jokes were instantaneous stating that Wick was evolving and that he's getting smarter and smarter with a new disguise. Even the Team Fortress 2 spy came into the conversation, because there is always at least one. And of course with Keanu Reeves being the actor for both John Wick and The Matrix's Neo, that comparison was also thrown in there. It's all an illusion and this player just happened to glitch the Matrix. It all makes sense now.

What we are actually seeing, however, is just simple lag and the skin had a delay before loading up. Though the framerate issues have gotten a lot better throughout the months, it's still an online title with constant changes coming into effect. Still, considering that John Wick ending up claiming the takedown in the above clip, the transformation did make it even more epic, now we're wondering if he took home the Victory Royale?

As for what's new in the game, you can see the full (and they are huge) patch notes right here, with a highlight below:
