Fortnite is always full of surprises for players. The popular video game keeps things exciting with new stuff to unlock and challenges to complete. Chapter 4 Season 4 also has a particularly unexpected surprise – some players are getting a special cosmetic without even earning it!
Epic’s Official Explanation
The item is called the Redmask Ranker Back Bling. It was meant to be a reward for finishing special level-based quests that were added this season. But many players have reported getting it without doing the challenge required. This has made people curious about why Epic Games is just giving it away.
This season introduced lots of new goodies to win, including the Back Bling. It changes looks depending on your position in the graded play mode. Not long after the season started, players noticed they were getting this free item.
Fortnite explained what happened. After checking the data from the ranked challenges, they decided to give the Redmask Ranker to anyone who logs into the online title during this season. Their post hinted future seasons may also give challenge rewards out early like this.
Promoting Inclusivity and Engagement
The item has a cool feature to show your level. So it encourages players to engage in ranked play and show off their progress. Giving it as a log-in bonus brings more players to the new season and makes it more exciting.
Gifting the unique cosmetic to all players may seem odd at first. But Epic likely has good reasons for being so generous here. They probably want to make sure all fans can use this item, not just highly skilled players who earn it. Handing it out promotes inclusiveness so everyone feels part of the experience.
This is not the first Epic’s surprise for the battle royale lovers, and won’t be the last. They have recently announced that creators will be paid if players spend V-Bucks for joining their creative islands.
The company wants as many people as possible to enjoy all Fortnite has to offer. While unexpected, offering a reward actually benefits both the players and the game itself. It’s a smart strategy to keep fans hooked and happy.
