We are sure that this move comes with a reason, and that is not only because we’re approaching Halloween. Before some period, famous Fortnite data-miners have managed to gather data about the reaper harvester, and swap its appearance with the season 5 balloon pickaxe. However, that change would not cause a different appearance for the other players, rather than just a change on your screen.
Therefore, Epic Games has probably found out about the tweak created by some experienced coders, and therefore it was the best bet to get back the reaper harvester to the Fortnite shop right for Halloween.
So, if you have been one of those using the tweaked harvester gained by installing the app created by FNBR, now you have the chance to buy the original one, having impact on other players perspective as well and not just you.
One of the most desired harvesters, The Reaper, is back in Fortnite, and everyone who has missed it has the chance to buy it right before Halloween. That would make it look as a original theme for this year’s Halloween event as well.
Epic Games gives players a chance to dwell into Fortnitemares and the whole Halloween extravaganza with a cheap Reaper harvester. It costs only 800 V-Bucks, and will last in the auction for the next day.
