Hasbro To Release Fortnite Nerf Guns in Spring 2019
Hasbro recently announced a partnership with Epic Games to bring Fortnite into the world of Monopoly, but that’s not where the rabbit hole ends. They also announced a Fortnite Nerf lineup, and it seems we’ll be seeing it revealed very shortly.
Updated Article – 24 October 2018
I guess it is really Nerf or nothing – as Hasbro announced earlier this year that not only will Fortnite be given the Monopoly treatment but also will have its own lineup of Nerf blasters in Spring 2019. They also updated their Instagram with a new announcement photo today (October 24). This might hint at an upcoming reveal of the lineup of weapons coming to the Nerf brand.
This isn’t the first time Nerf have partnered with a game publisher to bring in-game weapons to the Nerf lineup – earlier this year it was announced that Blizzard Entertainment had struck a deal to bring Overwatch’s weapons into the Nerf family.
We don’t know the specific details of which weapons will be turned into Nerf blasters, but we know the lineup is planned to be released in Spring 2019.
Speaking to IGN, a Hasbro representative stated that the Fortnite nerf lineup “will immerse fans into the player-versus-player action of the game, letting them play out the Battle Royale in real-world settings with blasters and accessories that emulate the onscreen battles Fortnite is known for.”

First look at Fortnite x UNIQLO clothing line
UNIQLO is partnering with Fortnite for a clothing line that releases in December 2019, but they gave us a sneak peek at what to expect with the new designs.
Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world so it’s no surprise to see so much merch popping up that takes advantage of this.
Since the release of the battle royale mode in 2017, it has skyrocketed in popularity and we now see NERF guns, Funko Pop! collectibles, action figures, and much more.
Now we know UNIQLO is partnering with the game and releasing a clothing line of their own. Fortnite has already dabbled in the clothing merch scene but never with UNIQLO.
For those out of the loop, UNIQLO creates a lot of video game apparel for games such as Overwatch, Street Fighter, Mario and many more.
This is a brand that focuses a lot of selling video game apparel to the masses so a Fortnite collaboration is huge for them if they want to reach an even broader audience.
The official Fortnite Twitter account gave us our first look at what to expect with a couple of different designs but there will surely be many more included once the line launches in December.
If you’re in the market for some Fortnite clothes and don’t want to wait for this design to launch, you can check out what’s for sale on Amazon.
There’s quite the selection of officially licensed gear for sale so you know you’re getting good quality if you do decide to go through with a purchase.
The UNIQLO line currently has no prices available for any of the gear. If you see something you like and are short on money, it might be worth saving up for it now.

Here’s how you can purchase collectible streamer figures from Target – Ninja, Timthetatman, and more
Some of gaming’s most popular personalities are set to have their own line of collectible figures that will be available for purchase at Target stores thanks to this leaked picture for an employee.
Top streaming personalities across Twitch and Mixer like Ninja, Summit1G, and Dr Disrespect will be getting modeled into their very own LAMO figures.
Several streamers on August 3 and August 4 tweeted promotional teaser pictures showing their outlines, including LIRIK’s.

Here are the first confirmed five streamers to have their own LAMO figures:
- Dr Disrespect
Each figure has its own sense of personality as fans will not be able to show their support by purchasing the first wave of LAMO collectible figures. For example, Dr Disrespect’s figure includes the two-time’s signature sunglasses while Ninja’s proudly showcases his iconic bright blue hair.
The leaker did not say if there were any more streamers included in the first wave as he has only seen the initial five.
Fans who are interested in purchasing any of the LAMO figures will have to head to their local Target in the “action figure” or “video game” section.
Are you going to pick up any of the figures? Who is the first one you are going to collect? Let us know!
