Earlier this week, Epic Games released a pair of new Terminator skins for Fortnite, and the publisher is now offering a refund to those who purchased the T-800. The official Fortnite The website states that the skin is accompanied by a built-in emotion Cyberdyne Salute. This is not the case, which may have caused some complaints from players. The official Fortnite Status Twitter account of Fortnite Status has announced that players will be able to apply for it using the in-game stream. A specific date on which players can start receiving this refund has not been announced, but will be available sometime next week.
The Epic Games tweet can be found embedded below.
We fixed a bug on https://t.co/xlIk0X9a5H that the T-800 Outfit includes a built-in Emote. If you want a refund, you can do so using the in-game stream (no refund tag required) from next week. Stay tuned for notification during next week̵7;s game. pic.twitter.com/HjTrpbU0jf

Emut Cyberdyne Salute aims to evoke the last moments of the T-800 Terminator 2: Judgment Day, where the character took a bath of molten steel to ensure his own destruction and protect the future. The original trailer released by Epic Games announcing the content paid tribute at the time, but this time the T-800 was stopped by Jonesy, who pulled it into the world of Fortnite to enlist his help.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 has a theme focused on the greatest hunters of the multiverse. The T-800 and Sarah Connor are the latest such “hunters” added this season, after Dean Jarin (The Mandalorian), Kratos (God of War), Chef (Hello) and Predator. There are a number of rumors about future hunters, including Tom Raider star Lara Croft. Epic Games has been constantly adding new skins since the start of last season, so fans probably won’t have to wait much longer to see which character will make the cut next!
Fortnite currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. You can check out all our previous coverage of the game here.
