New Fortnite concept weapon would damage opponents over time

A concept weapon designed by an avid Fortnite fan would deal damage to opponents over a period of time, rather than immediately.

The weapon is named the ‘Dart Gun’ and, instead of firing bullets or explosives, would fire a dart at unsuspecting enemies. The dart would then begin to deal damage to the opponent over a specified period of time, instead of inflicting its full damage immediately upon impact.

Because the weapon deals damage over time like Fortnite’s storm, the creator of the concept has also suggested calling it the ‘Storm Gun’ to mirror the dangerous climate.

This weapon could be used to attack enemies who haven’t spotted you, dealing damage to them without the need to fire your weapon again.

It could also be used to finish off weak or downed opponents without requiring you to advance on their position, by shooting them once and letting the dart’s powers finish them off.

The concept was designed and posted on the Fortnite Battle Royale subeddit by a user named ‘gone_fantastic’. Fans of the popular battle royale game commented that they would like to see it introduced to the game.

Fortnite players are constantly creating new and exciting additions that they would like to see included in Fortnite Battle Royale. Recently, a fan created an awesome new concept skin based on Marvel’s Iceman character, while another player designed a new storm concept that would improve competitive matches of Fortnite.

Unfortunately, the interesting Dart Gun is just a concept created by a fan, and there are currently no plans for the weapon to be added to the franchise by Epic Games.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
