Fortnite Teases Long-Awaited Item

The recent Fortnite Wolverine trailer has seemingly teased the release of a long-awaited item. In the newest trailer of the free-to-play battle royale game on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Android that reveals Wolverine, Epic Games slyly snuck in the unreleased dual swords pickaxe. The cameo is quick, but as you can see below, it's clearly the dual swords that players thought were coming to the game in previous seasons.

At the moment, there's no confirmation whether these are a weapon or a pickaxe, however, given their size, many are assuming they are the latter. However, Fortnite has dabbled with melee weapons in the past, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that they are weapons.

That said, because they are spotted in the trailer, many are now wondering if they are coming to the game soon. Unfortunately, Epic Games has not addressed this speculation. At the moment of publishing, they still aren't in the game, but it's possible this will change in the near future.

Again, for now, it remains to be seen if the dual swords are actually coming to the game or if they were simply implanted here for the purpose of the trailer. If Epic Games provided any type of comment on this bit of speculation, we will be sure to update the story with whatever is provided.
