Fortnite Season 6 added a ton of new content to the game, though more is on the way. Between new tamable animals, new map locations, new weapons, and new skins, fans have been sinking their teeth into plenty of the new additions.

However, early into the latest season and we already have some pretty major leaks surrounding upcoming content. A few new weapons are on the way and we’ve got all the details you need to be ahead of the curve.

Easily the most notable weapon yet to appear in the live game can be spotted at the 45-second mark in the battle pass trailer. The Recycler allows you to harvest materials and then shoot them out as an explosive.

This unique weapon doesn’t require any traditional form of ammo to be fired. Instead, you just need to be near other objects on the map. From building materials to trash cans, almost anything can be sucked into the gun and fired back.

This upcoming weapon isn’t just for fun. The Recycler deals a good amount of damage if you’re able to hit your shots. With just one hit from the Rare version of the gun, enemies will take 75 points of damage, leaving them open for a quick follow-up.

While it doesn’t require ammo, the Recycler still has a magazine size of three. Meaning you’ll need to reload after a few shots, this takes just two seconds.

If you’re able to get your hands on the higher-tier versions, damage is even more effective. For the Epic rarity, each shot delivers 79 points of damage. At the Legendary rarity, enemies will take a whopping 83 points of damage.

For the time being, there’s no telling exactly when we might see this weapon in-game. We do know for certain that it’ll appear at some stage in Season 6, however.

With new updates coming each and every week, it’s likely Epic drops it in without much warning. Be on the lookout for subtle teasers as the Recycler isn’t too far off.

In addition, three new exotic weapons are set to be added to the game in the near future and will be sold by three different NPC’s around the map: a marksman revolver, an unstable bow, and a grappler bow will be sold by Deadfire, Rebirth Raven, and Lara Croft respectively.

Little to none is known about the above weapons, but we did see something that looks suspiciously like a grappler bow in the battle pass trailer as well, at the 23-second mark.

The bow seemingly allows the player to grapple up similarly to the grapple gun from previous seasons.
