Fortnite added a new pet to the Item Shop this week. This pet looked very similar to another good boy who was already in the game. The "Gunner" pet, added to the Item Shop on August 13th, was very similar to another "Bonesy" pet that allowed players to fight with a full backpack. Bonesy has been around for several seasons and the similarities between the two pets have been disappointed by players who said they had no plans to buy a pet with new skin. Epic Games responded that the pet should not have been released and that it would be removed from the store with refunds for those who bought it.
To see for yourself how similar the two pets are, a Reddit user named PhantomRacer32 submitted a side-by-side comparison to show the two dogs. Bonesy is on the left, Gunner on the right. The two dogs look almost identical, except for a yellow mask on Gunner and an emblem on the headscarf.

After acknowledging the complaints made by the players, Epic Games acknowledged that Gunner should not have been released. To fix the problem, the pet is removed from the players' collections and anyone who buys it gets back its 1,000 V-Bucks along with an additional 200 V-Bucks. Those who choose to refund it prior to their forced removal will receive 200 V-Bucks and receive another Refund tokens that can be used for recently purchased items.
We should not have released Gunner Pet and apologized for it. In the next few days, all Gunner purchases will be refunded for the full amount of 1000 V-Bucks and an additional 200 V-Bucks, and the pet will be removed from the locker.
