Fortnite enthusiasts are in for a nostalgic treat as Epic Games reintroduces a classic Marvel cosmetic back into the game.

Black Widow's exclusive pickaxe has made its triumphant return to the in-game store after a hiatus of nearly five years. This beloved battle royale has always been a melting pot of crossovers, weaving together a tapestry of iconic characters from various realms of pop culture.

Over the years, Fortnite has served as a canvas for collaborations ranging from Star Wars and Indiana Jones to Dragon Ball Z and Jujutsu Kaisen. However, it's Marvel that has truly left an indelible mark on the game with its plethora of iconic characters and items. From Spider-Man swinging into action to the cosmic adventures of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel's presence in Fortnite has been formidable.

The return of Black Widow's pickaxe, affectionately dubbed the "Widow's Bite," marks a significant moment for long-time players. Last seen during the Avengers crossover in April 2019, this pickaxe has been absent from the shop for a staggering 1791 days, making its comeback a cause for celebration among fans. Available for a modest 800 V-Bucks, it's a piece of Fortnite history that collectors won't want to miss.

Emotes paying homage to memorable moments from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies add an extra layer of excitement to the crossover event.

Meanwhile, Fortnite's competitive scene heats up with the launch of Chapter 5 Season 2, introducing a slew of mythological-themed skins and gameplay enhancements. From the thunderous power of Zeus to the daring flight of Icarus, players are in for an epic showdown amidst the backdrop of ancient legends.
