Fortnite: Epic Games Offers Refund Following Terminator Confusion

Published 01/25/2021, 12:14 PM EST


Fortnite has always been the foremost in incorporating pop-culture references into the game. It is one of the major reasons how the game stays relevant in terms of in-game content. Although the genre of Battle Royale titles has acquired a certain saturation, titles like Fortnite and Call of Duty Warzone seem to be the only ones with unfaltering popularity.

Following the entire Marvel-themed season in the game, the current season has incorporated iconic skins like The Mandalorian. The latest addition to the skin roster in the game is the Future War set with skins from the iconic Sci-Fi movie franchise, Terminator.

The iconic Terminator skins (T-800, Sarah Connor, etc.) are available in the game as a part of the Future War bundle. However, players can just get the T-800 for 1500 V-Bucks. Now, although the T-800 skin itself looks quite sick, it gained massive hype due to the Cyberdyne Salute emote.

Fortnite rolls out refunds following confusion around T-800 skin

Now, here is where the confusion arose. A lot of players assumed that the said emote would be available along with the skin as an in-built feature. They have blamed the blog post announcing the arrival of these skins for their confusion. Here is what the blog post says:

Going back in time with the T-800, you’ll receive the HK Skynet Uplink Back Bling. Finish the look with the also available Techno-Grip Axe and Cyberdyne Salute Emote.

Most of the players thought it was a bargain to get an in-built emote along with the skin and spent their V-Bucks on it. However, Epic has taken responsibility for this confusion and will be rolling out refunds for this purchase.

We have updated this blog to reflect that the Cyberdyne Salute Emote is not a built-in Emote included with the purchase of the T-800. If you purchased the T-800 outfit and are no longer satisfied with your purchase, you will be able to make a refund using the in-game flow (no refund token required) starting next week. Be on the lookout for an in-game notification when it’s available. Thanks for playing!

Epic has proven its integrity as a video game label over the years, and with this latest incident, it has won hearts among the community yet again.
