Fornite has added Will Smith’s Mike Lowrey character from the Bad Boys movie franchise to the battle royale’s Item Shop.
Epic Games announced the Bad Boys x Fortnite crossover in a blog post on Saturday, revealing that a little of Miami’s South Beach would be coming to the game by way of detective Mike Lowrey.
The Mike Lowrey Outfit can be purchased in the Fortnite Item Shop right now and it includes the Detective’s Duffle Back Bling. The Loose Cannon set also features Lowrey’s dual-wielding pickaxe known as the Loose Cannon Cutters. You can see the entire Mike Lowrey set in the image below:
Unfortunately for Bad Boys diehards, Lowrey’s police partner and best friend, Marcus Burnett (played by Martin Lawrence in the movies) is nowhere to be seen.
“Mike Lowrey is one cool customer,” the blog post reads. “Whether he’s involved in explosive action or a high-speed chase, he’s always undeniably smooth.”
Hopefully he’s great at building, too.
While the addition of Lowrey is probably exciting for Will Smith and Bad Boys fans, the character’s inclusion in Season 7 of Fortnite Chapter 2, specifically, is an odd one. That’s because the entire season is themed around aliens and alien invasions, and not many actors have fought aliens on the big screen more than Will Smith, as noted by PCGamesN.
The most obvious alien-themed choice when choosing a Will Smith character would have been Agent J from Men in Black, but Steven Hiller from Independence Day would have worked just as well too. Lowrey, however, has not fought off an alien invasion before.
Nevertheless, it’s a good day to be a Fortnite fan who’s also a fan of Will Smith. Mike Lowrey and his equipment are now available to purchase in the Fortnite Item Shop.
