Did you make the connection?

The hit Amazon Prime animated series "Invincible" returned April 4 with the final episode of Season 2. In a blink-and-you-can-miss-it moment, the Invincible season finale, "I Thought You Were Stronger," featured a reference to Fortnite that surely had fans pointing at the screen like the Leonardo Dicaprio meme from One Upon a Time in Hollywood. In a brief sequence, the series' main character, Invincible, wields a recognizable weapon from Fortnite's past.

Those looking to find the Fortnite reference should head to the 13:15-minute mark. While encountering the season's primary antagonist, Angstrom Levy, the character opens a portal to eliminate Invincible. Much to his surprise, Invincible emerges from the portal wielding the Dragon's Breath Sniper Rifle from Fortnite. However, instead of firing it to show the weapon's true capability, Invincible smacks Angstrom Levy over the head.

What is the Dragon's Breath Sniper?

The Dragon's Breath Sniper first appeared as an "Exotic" weapon in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5. This Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle shoots flame rounds, igniting trees, wood structures, and opponents ablaze. It is powerful and can instantly send enemies back to the lobby.

It returned several times over the last few Fortnite seasons. However, it has been missing in action since Chapter 4 Season 3. Regardless, you can still find the Dragon's Breath Sniper in Fortnite Creative Mode if you're looking to experience it following the Invincible reference.

How did the Invincible Fortnite reference come to be?

According to Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR, this Invincible Fortnite reference happened in conjunction between Epic Games and show creators. It was reported via Discussing Film and Variety that former Epic Games Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard worked on this collaboration before exiting the organization.

This latest reference adds another layer to the ongoing partnership between Fortnite and Invincible. The show's characters Atom Eve, Omni-Man, and Invincible have their own in-game skins. All Invincible cosmetics are currently available in the Fortnite Item Shop.
