Popular YouTuber Ali-A has seemingly uncovered some plans for new weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2 – as some of the new bosses appear to be constructing guns of their own.
After Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 dragged on to become the longest season in the history of the battle royale, players were finally given the Chapter 2, Season 2 update on February 20.
The Top Secret theme of the new season has dropped an army of henchmen and five bosses on new locations within map – as well as expanding the small loot pool for the new season. However, it appears as if that loot pool could be growing a little further, as Ali-A appears to have stumbled on to plans for new weapons.
In his March 8 upload, the popular YouTuber noted that there have already been some weapons leaked within the game files that haven’t been released – most notably, some sort of electric gun.
Seeing the phrase electric gun might spark fears of a return for the Zappatron but before we get there, Ali-A noted that some weapons are appearing under the collective nose of players.
To be exact, if you head to the Challenge Table and look around the secret bases at your agents, there are weapons on the wall behind them. Most of these are in-game already but a few, including the Hand Cannon, are not – with the YouTuber summarising that they could appear later.

Heading into an actual game, Ali-A revealed that players who head to The Rig and snoop around TNTina’s rooms will note that there weapons of some kind being built. This is because there are blueprints on the wall and parts scattered around on tables.
Of course, Epic Games have teased players with in-game easter eggs before so it wouldn’t be all that much of a stretch to consider what is going here as a possible hint towards new weapons.
Whether or not that will be the case, though, remains to be seen as there hasn’t been any confirmation that these weapons are being built.
The next Fortnite update does not currently have a confirmed date, though players will see legacy aim assist removed from the game on March 13.
