Said scarcity of information hasn’t stopped fans of the hit game from speculating about what they expect to see come from the collaboration.

As many have noted, a great deal of the weapons found in Fortnite are, indeed, based on actual guns. Traditionally, Nerf has shied away from creating realistic weapons in favor of more playful, child-friendly alternatives. Luckily, Fortnite also has a number of wacky, unrealistic weapons from which a toy replica can be created.

Interestingly, this latest Nerf news comes just weeks after we reported on the company’s Overwatch-inspired line.
