‘Fortnite’ Teases ‘Rick and Morty’ Crossover, New Helmet Item And More

The third—and final—Season 7 Fortnite teaser dropped this morning.

The teaser features another alien weapon, a futuristic looking helmet and the butter robot from Rick and Morty. The sole purpose of the robot is to pass butter. This is the second dairy-themed teaser for Season 7 following a carton of milk in Teaser #1.

So we have aliens, clearly, a dairy pattern, a for-sure Rick and Morty crossover of some sorts and possibly a Superman skin. There’s also the Loki teaser in the one loading screen for June.

As with the first two teasers, Epic Games has included different text on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Twitter: “Results of transportation bot test: -Transporting various weaponry – Failed -Transporting documents & schematics – Failed -Transporting bone modification liquid – Satisfactory No further testing required.

This seems like a reference to the butter passing robot. Milk and butter seem to have something to do with bone density in the upcoming season.

Facebook: Ordinance Delivery B2-6821 Latest tests show the weapon is highly effective against organic material. Against structures and mobile metallic transportation units the weapon becomes less effective. Weapon approved for field use.

The weapon, then, which appears to do more damage to other players or bots than to structures and vehicles.

Instagram: Results of flower protector test. – Ability to withstand high-impact collision – Acceptable – Ability to withstand weapon fire – Above average – Ability to increase style – Exceptional No further testing required.

This makes me think the helmet is more than just a skin or skin style. It’s armor, clearly, since it helps protect against collision and weapon fire. Will there be wearable helmets in Season 7? Seems possible. Likely even. Helmets could definitely change the nature of Fortnite. It might also not be limited to helmets. What if other wearables show up in the game that provide different benefits?

We’ll know more tomorrow when Season 7 kicks off. Today is the last day of Season 6 so expect downtime overnight and tune in to Forbes Games tomorrow for coverage of the new Battle Pass, updated map, challenge guides and much more!

And finally, here’s when Season 7 starts and what to expect. Good luck out there, young padawans!
