An all-new Fortnite leak has revealed that an anti-Choppa rocket launcher is in the works – and it might be pretty deadly.
When the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 came to an end, fans of Epic Games’ battle royale finally got what they’d been looking for – a raft of brand new content. That came in the form of a storyline for the season, NPC characters, and new locations – as well as a few new weapons to spice up the loot pool.
As Chapter 2, Season 2 has progressed, there have been a handful of new weapons and deadly items added to the battle royale, with leakers also uncovering plenty of others that could soon be added to the mix as well.
Popular Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey was able to uncover another new weapon that is currently only known by its codename: MistyBop.
According to the leaker’s information, this new weapon would be a Rocket Launcher with a special ability that would allow players to use it to lock on to a Choppa pretty quickly and bring it down with a few blasts.
Though there is no image or animation of the new weapon in action, there are two sound files related to the weapon that the leaker uncovered – with one seemingly being the warning a Choppa pilot would have when they come into the weapon’s crosshairs.
Weapon Codename: MistyBop
Weapon: Rocket Launcher
Special Ability: Can lock on to the Helicopter.
Achievements: Destroyed a Choppa with a Missile Battery

Some Fortnite fans might question the need for a weapon that can quickly dispose of the Choppa – seeing as the aerial vehicle is pretty harmless compared to others. Yet, plenty will no doubt welcome it seeing as it’s inclusion would no doubt help keep the game fresh.
However, it’s difficult to say as to when players might be able to wield one in-game, especially as there were five other weapons leaked on April 8. We’ll just have to wait and see as to what Epic does.
