Yup, that is the butter robotic from season one, episode 9: “One thing Ricked This Method Comes.”
Rick creates the robotic mid-breakfast for the only real function of passing the butter, which the little man clearly struggles to deal with as soon as it dawns on him how… banal his life shall be. Basic Rick and Morty deadpan humor, so far as the primary season goes.
Anyway, Fortnite’s tweet that the butter-bot has failed at transporting something however butter, together with weapons and paperwork. The butter robotic does not actually have a personality arc past one or two transient scenes, but it surely may match into the general season 7 theme of alien abductions and UFOs, one thing that slots proper into Rick and Morty’s universe(s). Epic can be working an ARG of some kind that performs into the alien investigation theme.
It might additionally play some position in crafting. Fortnite gamers have been utilizing bones from hunted animals with the intention to create Primal weapons with better harm. Primal and “makeshift” weapons are going away on the finish of season 6, but it surely may very well be changed by a brand new kind of weapon or up to date crafting system.
So does this imply we’ll see Rick and Morty skins or different cosmetics? Exhausting to say in the intervening time, but it surely seems to be possible since these kinds of collaborations not often finish with one meager entry.
