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.

Fortnite fans can get Mythic weapons from the all-new bosses, but more loot looks set to come.

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.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
