A Fortnite leaker has revealed at least two more weapons will be coming to the game soon after finding them in the data files – and one of them looks to be a very powerful gun for Deadpool.

Marvel and Fortnite have a long history together, and their most recent collaboration was to bring Deadpool to the battle royale title, complete with fresh new cosmetics for players to use and show off.

Now though, it appears he may be getting another special weapon, as well as some other interesting additions that are sure to shake the game up a little bit more.

Midas’ Mythic Drum Gun is another incredible weapon added for Season 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2.

Posting to Twitter, leaker ‘spedicey1′ claims that two weapons on their way include something called ‘MistyBop’ and Deadpool’s Dual Pistols — both of which look particularly interesting.

Deadpool’s Dualies will be able to deal 43 damage at close range, 36.55 at mid-range and 32.25 at long range, according to spedicey — meaning you might be able to pull off some decent eliminations from any distance. They also have a clip size of 18, which should be more than enough if you hit your shots.

He also mentions the ‘MistyBop’ which, as of now, isn’t quite clear as to what it is. However, it does 50 damage with a reload time of 5 seconds, including an “infinite” clip size.

One respondent said the MistyBop sounds like it could just be the proximity mine, and that somewhat fits the bill, but there’s no reason for that to have a codename now that it’s in the game, so we’ll have to wait for more information to come out about that.

On the day of the v12.10 patch, there were also leaks to suggest two more weapons will be coming to Fortnite in the near future, with an updated, upgraded Scoped AR and a new Slug Shotgun waiting in the wings.

Leaks have also suggested that Fortnite will be getting helicopters sometime soon — which will likely cause a bit of a stir considering the poor reception that the planes recieved way back in Season 7.

Whether or not these are 100% set to make their way into the game remains to be seen, but these leakers have quite a solid track record of delivering on what they mention.

The return of Dual Pistols – especially with the backing of none other than Deadpool – is definitely exciting, but we’ll have to hold our breath over MistyBop until we discover what exactly it is.

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.

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
