In a surprise move from Epic Games, Raccoon City survivors Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield were recently added to Fortnite’s Gaming Legends series. Outfits and accessories can now be purchased from the Item Shop!

The Attaché Case Back Bling and the Combat Knife Pickaxe, a weapon popular among R.P.D. veterans, are included in Leon S. Kennedy’s outfit. Meanwhile, Claire Redfield’s outfit features the R.P.D. Keys Back Bling and the familiar-looking Umbrella Parasol Pickaxe.

The Resident Evil series fans will be thrilled to see these popular characters in Fortnite. Even so, some fans claim that something is missing from the set.

While Leon is lacking his iconic jacket, he does come with a knife that works as a Fortnite pickaxe and an attache case that doubles as a back bling. Even if his outfit is lacking, these items provide a touch of authenticity to his character model.

Fortnite also features Claire Redfield, another Resident Evil character. She appears in her Resident Evil 2 outfit, but like Leon, she has no other available style options.

Resident Evil 4 Remake

Despite Leon’s lack of outfit options, the comeback of the Resident Evil characters is nevertheless a reason for excitement for many gamers. The Fortnite and Resident Evil collab comes ahead of the highly anticipated release of the Resident Evil 4 remake later this month.

It is regrettable that Leon is not sporting his iconic Resident Evil 4 jacket. There may yet be time for Epic Games to implement a patch before the game’s release.
