We may also seem some alternative outfits, we’d predict either a classic OG Halo variant or maybe the option to change the armour’s colour!

With all the crazy lore reveals in Fortnite right now it would be appropriate if two Red Spartans could wonder why they are there, on an island in the middle of nowhere.

The glider would be the iconic UNSC Pelican.
