Popular YouTuber Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has shared some hidden weapons that might be on their way to Fortnite in Season 3.

Season 3 has been long-awaited by Fortnite fans and after the season was confirmed to be delayed by Epic Games, it left many players wondering about what could be added next to the popular battle royale title. Following on from that, though, it was confirmed that June 11 would be the day everything new kicks into action.

While little is known about what will happen following the upcoming Doomsday Event, Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has suggested that some new secret weapons have been hidden right under our noses all along.

Fortnite has not had too many new weapons added recently and Ali-A explained that some of the upcoming weapons might have already been hidden within the game.

“Throughout Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, hidden weapons have been within the game right in front of our eyes, however, they haven’t been easy to access,” he revealed.

The YouTube star claimed that some of the weapons within Fortnite’s new Spy Games playlist, which are given their own unique abilities, could soon be added to the standard battle royale modes soon as well. Here, players can choose different settings and options for various guns – making their own versions of what’s already available.

He explained how the new weapons worked and that they even have their own abilities in-game. “At the start of each game you’ll be given a weapon and assigned to that weapon will be a random ability as well,” he said.

The weapons can be equipped with passive abilities such as Air Raid, allowing you to deal more damage in the air and provide you with new ways to gain the edge over your opponent.

“As you start ranking these up, you can start to link together specific weapons with specific abilities to create weapon types and weapon unlocks that aren’t available anywhere else in the game,” he continued.

The YouTuber also pointed out that weapons such as the unreleased ‘Legendary scoped AR’ were also featured in this playlist and claimed that it could be a teaser for what’s to come in Season 3.

“The cool thing is a lot of these weapons are being tested out right now,” Ali-A explained, “potentially they’re going to be released properly into the rest of the game with the next Fortnite season, except we’re getting an early look.”

As of now, Epic Games has not revealed many details on what players can expect in Season 3, or if these weapons might be added, although with the new season releasing soon on June 11, it is likely that they will let fans find out for themselves.

However, if you do want to try out some of these unique guns and their abilities just incase, they are available in different operations which can be found within the Spy Games tab in Fortnite’s lobby. Maybe he’s onto something.


New Fortnite Season 5 release date and start time potentially leaked

A Fortnite leaker has seemingly revealed the start date, and time, of Chapter 2, Season 5 amid uncertainty about when it’ll be getting underway. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its end as players are gearing up to, finally, take on Galactus alongside some of their favorite Marvel characters. 

As with the conclusion of any season, Fortnite players immediately start looking forward to what’s coming next – and everything that Epic Games will have in store for them. Typically, the final day of the battle pass is a good indicator for when a new season might start, but that has been changed a few times in Season 4. 

Add to that the rumors about a potential black hole blackout situation again, and the Fortnite community has been left incredibly confused about Season 5’s start date.

Galactus has been getting closer and closer to the Fortnite map all season – and a battle is on the way.

However, that confusion could be cleared up if one leaker is correct with their claims about the next season. 

ShiinaBR, who has been a reliable leaker in the past, shared some information from another leaker who seems to have the scoop. “Season 5 could(!) start on December 2 at 7 am GMT, according to @tonxim,” she tweeted on November 22. “If this is true, this means the season would start 10 hours after the event takes place!”

If correct, this would mean that Fortnite Season 5 would get underway on December 2nd at 2 am ET/11 pm PT/8 am CET. So, it could be a long day of Fortnite if you factor in attending the live event. 

Additionally, the lengthy downtime would also play into the speculation that another blackout could happen in the meantime – making Fortnite inaccessible until the new season starts. 

Nothing, as of now, has been confirmed by Epic, so it’s worth taking things with a pinch of salt, but it does seem like we’re drawing ever close to the start date of Season 5 being confirmed.
