Will Smith’s Bad Boys Skin is now officially available in Fortnite
Will Smith has finally made it into Fortnite. Following a series of leaks and speculation earlier this month hinting that the world-renowned actor’s image would soon be added to the popular battle royale shooter, Epic Games made the announcement official this evening when it added Smith’s skin to the Item Shop.
As predicted, the skin linked with Smith is not a true representation of him. Rather than that, it is based on Mike Lowrey, the character Smith portrayed in the Bad Boys film trilogy. “Mike Lowrey is a very pleasant customer. He is always indisputably smooth, whether he is involved in spectacular action or a high-speed chase. And now, the investigator from South Beach is making his way to Fortnite “Epic Games announced the character’s inclusion in the game on its website.
While Lowrey’s physical skin is arguably the most noticeable addition to the game, it is not the only object linked to the character. Additionally, Lowrey includes a piece of Back Bling dubbed the Detective’s Duffle. In essence, it’s a very ordinary backpack with handcuffs and an assault weapon attached. Lowrey also has his own distinctive pickaxe, dubbed the Loose Cannon Cutters. This item resembles a pair of knives that Lowrey (and other characters) can employ in lieu of a conventional pickaxe.
As previously said, Lowrey’s inclusion into Fortnite is officially official, which means he should be available for purchase in the Item Shop right now. Lowrey should be available for purchase for a limited time beginning now, regardless of whether you’re playing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, or mobile.
