Accompanying Bender to the Island is Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun. This brand-new Fortnite weapon is loaded with endless white-hot plasma and is only held back by overheating. You can find Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun as Floor Loot or visit Bender himself and purchase it for Gold Bars.

That's everything there is to the Fortnite x Futurama crossovers. Explore the Island and play Fortnite as your favourite character from Futurama, or simply melt your enemies into goo with Bender’s Shiny Metal Raygun!
