Best Fortnite Weapon Concept Ideas – AK-47, Railgun, Paintball Gun, Battle Rifle and More

Creative Fortnite fans have been busy devising weapon concepts which are not yet in the game, but could potentially be excellent additions.

There are a lot of very passionate and imaginative Fortnite players, and due to Epic Games’ willingness to implement fans’ ideas in the past, more and more fan-made concepts have popped up on social media.

While most of these concepts are for items like skins, pick-axes and consumables, there are also some excellent weapon concepts which we wouldn’t be surprised if Epic added at some point in the future.


The most recognizable weapon in the world is yet to make an appearance in Fortnite, but this concept of the Russian Kalashnikov rifle by u/idothingssometimes is a pretty good impression of what it could look like.



The compact little brother of the AK-47, the AKS-74u, could make for a brilliant addition to the sub-machine category.

This concept comes courtesy u/lukeruza.

Vector SMG

Another potential SMG option would be the Vector – as shown in this concept from u/thecrimsondev. Epic Games recent added a legendary SMG however, so the chances of either of these SMG’s being added is not so high.

Paintball Gun

A bit more of a novelty weapon idea, this Paintball Gun concept from u/Qpaniic would make for some very colorful gunfights.


A more ambitious concept, this Railgun idea from u/DeadYen would “fire a pulse which penetrates all wooden objects and has a 30 second recharge time.”

Battle Rifle

One of the all time great weapons in multiplayer shooters, the Halo Battle Rifle holds a special place in the heart of many gamers – and would love it to make an appearance in Fortnite.

Semi-Auto Rifle

A more reasonable Rifle request might be a semi-auto rifle (u/RealSkylitPanda), of which there are none currently. The only semi-auto’s in Fortnite are all scoped, with a slow fire rate. Perhaps a fast firing semi-auto, unscoped, could have a place in the meta.

Incedniary Grenade

Finally, not a gun concept this time, but a new throwable. This incendiary grenade devised by u/thebeanhasarrived would be able to burn down opponents builds as well has deal damage to enemies.


Epic Games is constantly working to add new items and weapons to Fortnite in an effort to keep the game fresh, especially for those passionate fans who have played hours and hours on end.

Of course, considerations of balance and gameplay must be taken into account when deciding on new weapons and equipment, so Epic will be careful not to add something potentially game-breaking – no matter how fun.

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
