The current Fortnite season has as its main theme “secret agents” and, as expected, the millions of players will be able to find several references to the countless films that share this theme. Epic Games has just launched a new item that could revolutionize the game strategies of many players.

The latest weapon at the disposal of players is a bulletproof umbrella, inspired by the popular British film saga “Kingsman”. The main feature is the possibility to protect from virtually any direct attack by opening the umbrella towards the opponent. Obviously, this protection is limited for a time and will only be useful in emergencies.

Features of the new “Kingsman” umbrella introduced in Fortnite

Temporary protection against attacks is not the only useful feature of this peculiar umbrella. In addition, it can also be used as a weapon to attack opponents in body-to-body combat, but it should not be used as a primary weapon.

For the more adventurous, they will be able to use the umbrella as glider alternative whenever they want to jump from heights that would cause their elimination. It is important to emphasize that the speed of the fall will be much higher than that provided by the glider, which may cause damage to the player.

In addition to the umbrella, a new crash pad inflatable, which will also be able to save you in case of unexpected falls.

For now, it has not yet been revealed when these two new items will be available in Fortnite. Most likely, your length of stay will be influenced by the reaction of the players.

Regardless of the level of popularity that these new items may (or may not) achieve, there is no doubt that it is with good taste that we see Epic Games bringing references that are not related to the mythical James Bond.
