However, with the COVID-19 pandemic, the studio is instead keeping an eye on whether to proceed with its plans.

Fortnite: Season 2 – Where to find Kingsman umbrellas

You’ll need to grab a Kingsman brolly and shield yourself from damage in this week’s Fortnite challenge.

Bulletproof Kingsman umbrellas were recently added to Fortnite and this week, you’ll need to deflect 200 damage by using one. They are a fairly common drop and you’re more likely to find them in Henchmen areas like The Agency or The Yacht.
