It's part of being in Fortnite sadly. I mean... Batman doesn't use guns but he does in Fortnite, lol.

Got a good friend of mine who has been trying to get me to jump into Fortnite for awhile, and I thought I'd check it out with the Turtles ... but still not a fan of Raphael in the full bandanna look when no one else has it. Oh well.

I'm really surprised DC, Marvel, etc are ok with their characters being shown using guns in Fortnite. Like Batman or Spider-man, it feels so off-brand.

DC released a comic explaining Batman knows he’s in some kind of virtual reality and he’s not actually killing anyone, haha.

Four Turtles bundle and April acquired. They weren't really that expensive. I play gacha games and they try to extort you for tons of money. This was reasonable in comparison lol. Considering you get the LEGO versions and can use the turtles in a variety of game modes both present and future (since they keep coming up with new ones), not bad.

I swear the game ripped the inspiration for the April skin from a 2019 cosplay shoot:

Aight, so played Fortnite with a buddy for something like 20 total hours this weekend He bought Mikey before he even knew I bought the four turtle bundle. I mostly played as Raph, switched to Leo a few times. Then we jumped in with another friend and he had Don... so we were 3 turtles of the four... did pretty good in no build, played a lot of LEGO Fortnite too.

I'm late as hell to this game but hey, it's fun

I'm not sure when the turtles will be leaving the shop, but they probably don't have a lot of time left. Just a reminder for anyone who might be interested.

Reading around in various tmnt and fortnite communities, the response to these has been overwhelmingly positive. Hope we get more TMNT characters.

Oh yeah, and my battle pass is currently lvl 118 if that gives you any idea how much I've been playing this month

Ugh.
Why?

They went with relatively good TMNT designs and used most stupid Shredder design?

That Shredder looks great!

I'd be more inclided to play if they let you update the way they look a little bit. Is there ever a chance you think they update Raph to have a less full covered bandanna in the future? I love how he looks in that "drop" or whaever it is, haha.

Splinter looks elongated.
Regular Shredder is pretty cool and based on IDW.
Super Shredder still a major "EH". In general, I don't like Shredders in all iron armor.
